America in the Roaring 20s. On the surface, it's a positive, peaceful time after the violence of the Great War. But lurking in the shadows is a dark element ready to snatch that peace away. Sister Rosette Christopher, an exorcist working as a part of the Magdala Order, has a duty to fight the demons which appear and cause destruction. But along with her companion Chrno, she usually ends up causing more destruction than the demons themselves! On one particular mission, they meet a young girl with a beautiful voice named Azmaria, who is being targeted by her own stepfather. As Rosette and Chrno work to save her, more is revealed about the relationship between them. There is more to these two than meets the eye.

Chrno Crusade was republished in Japan by Shonen Gahosha in 2010. The new edition featured brand-new book design and artwork, as well as logo changes, correcting the title spelling from "Chrno" to "Chrono," which had initially been a typo.

The series was published by ADV Manga from June 8, 2004 to July 4, 2006. In addition, some of the series chapters were published in its anime and manga magazine Newtype USA.

When people think of shounen anime and manga they will undoubtedly think of stories that follow the typical format of never giving up and believing in your friends. Along the way the main characters in these tales may gain various abilities that make them insanely powerful, or gather a bevy of beauties, all of whom have some illogical desire to be with the main character.

There are, however, a few that attempt to do something a little different. The first anime adaptation of Full Metal Alchemist, for example, took a much darker turn than one might normally expect in a shounen tale. Likewise Akira followed its read more

My first encounter with Chrno Crusade was when the anime was still airing. I ended up gripped by it - following it weekly - until the tragic (yet satisfying) conclusion. And whilst I did not give it top marks due to its rushed Gonzo 'original story' second half, it did impress and move me.
Until last month, this was the end of myself and Chrno Crusade ('CC' from this point onwards) since I had not started reading manga until long after my memories of the anime had faded away. However, I saw an auction for the complete series and, since I have always wanted to see read more

I have a lot I want to say about Daisuke Moriyama's Manga Chrono Crusade. One of which is that it is one of the BEST Mangas I've read to date. I'll also go as far to say that its much better than its Anime counter part.

I'm getting ahead of myself here so I go back to how I was first introduced to Chrono Crusade. A good friend of mine told me about this series and said it was one of his favorites, so I was interest but I watched the Anime first. The Anime for Chrono Crusade was pretty read more

This is mainly a review of Volume 8.

After Volume 7 ended on one hell of a cliffhanger, I knew it was going to be difficult to wait until I had a chance to read the final volume, so I picked the very first opportunity I had. In an earlier review I listed Volume 6 as the best of all the series so far, and now I can say Volume 8 ranks right up there with it.

It would be kind of pointless to go over the story at this point; if you don't know what Chrno Crusade is all about, you need to go back and read more
