Did You Know?


In Japan, the title is spelled Chrno Crusade. Popular belief holds that it was to avoid copyright confusing with the Chrono Trigger games, produced by Square Company, however it was revealed through the original manga author as well as the crew at US distributor ADV Films, that Chrno was a production mistake. However the US title is the only title that spells it "Chrono". See more »


At the end of "Apostles" Rosett does not have her veil on. But when we see her again in the next episode, she has it on. There is no reason why they would put it back on her if she was unconscious. See more »


Sister Rosette Christopher: You know, I really do like this view. I wish that I could go on just looking at it forever.
Sister Rosette Christopher: hey
Chrono: mhm...
Sister Rosette Christopher: I was thinking about undoing the seal. If I did it, then you could heal your wounds.
Chrono: Its fine. Being here with you is what's really important right now and I don't want to lose anything else. Not ever again.
Sister Rosette Christopher: Hey, I think about the others sometimes, and wonder how everyone is doing? But for right now, I'd rather just be here with you. In these past few months we've spent together, I've ...

Nun with guns, how can you go wrong?
2 February 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Well like my title suggests, this anime has a nun with guns. Correction numerous nuns with guns. Also this has nothing to do with the Chrono Trigger/Cross games. Heck it's nothing near it unless the new games feature a nun with a gun. Sorry just saying that phrase is fun because it's so unlikely. Also a note I have only watched the Japanese version so my review is only looking at that part of it. But that is the great thing about DVDs right? You can watch it in 2 languages! This is set in 1928 AD in the United States, mostly New York and San Fransisco are mentioned. But I was surprised enough that it was actually set in the States, a lot of anime isn't is all I am saying.

The main characters are Rosette Christopher and her (caddy) friend Chrno (Chrono depending on which version you are used to). Rosette is apart of the Magadalan order who battle demons that are terrorizing everything. But there is something that the public doesn't know about the Order and that is that there is a demon that is working in the Order. Of course this demon isn't bad, but he was and he is trying to atone for his sins.

Rosette is looking for her younger brother Joshua, so Rosette and Chrno are on a journey to find where her brother is. They meet interesting characters along the way well some are interesting and some are annoying as hell *cough* Azmaria *cough* Chrono Crusade is enjoyable but short considering it is only 24 episodes long. It has its funny parts but also its serious parts. I was crying so badly while watching the last 3 episodes one after another. It was a snowballing effect and really pulled at my heart strings.

I give Chrono Crusade a 3 and a half out of 5. I would give it a 4 but the problem with filler episodes when it's only 24 episodes is terrible. Overall story is nice, the background music is so fitting and the voicing apart from Azmaria's is nice to listen to.

So give this anime a try, if I didn't get you with my title then hopefully I convinced you with my review. And just one more push, I mean really how often are you able to watch something with a nun with guns anyways?
