|Story & Information -
|Chrono Crusade is set in the height of the Roaring Twenties, where jazz is king, bootleg liquor flows freely, and the mob rules the streets. It is a time of prosperity, luxury and decadence, and the division between rich and poor grows even wider in the wake of the First World War. It is at such times of great change and upheaval that the dark things that lurk below the world of man can come to the surface. In the world of Chrono Crusade, a fictional organization known as the Order of Magdalene (or more specifically, the characters of Sister Rosette Christopher and her soul-bound demon partner, Chrono) exists to fight the demonic threats that appear with increasing regularity across America. Both Rosette and Chrono are revealed during the course of the story to be driven by a shadowy past, centered on a search for Rosette's lost brother Joshua who is shown to have been taken from her by the sinner, Aion, a demon who shares a dark and bloody history with Chrono. He seeks nothing less than to overthrow the delicate balance between Heaven, Earth, and Hell (in the manga it is the demons hierarchy he wished to destroy).
The anime follows the manga through the events of Volume IV, but it diverges during a crucial plot event, creating different courses of events and endings. The characterization of some the characters, including Rosette and Aion, and their roles in the story were changed drastically in the adaptation of the manga. Much of the story is driven by the individual pasts of the main characters and the complex relationships between them.
Actually I haven't read the manga, so I guess my point of view is biased, since I only watched the anime. However the fact that I am waiting for the next episodes, just to see what happens next means it grabbed me somehow... Or maybe I am too stupid to get the deeper meaning

Mitsugu Mouryou’s Anime Review
Ok, this was a long time coming, SAK I was a grrrrreat example of super-happy-fun time at it best! You get it all: subtle word-play humor(in both the EN and the JP vers.); classic physical gags; decent PG fight sequences(though Karinka
was rather sadistic to Saki
); and a prefect example of the wise words of Confucius: “Lovers in triangle are not square.” The storyline is good, character design is… yeow(Dr Amagi
...), and Kurumi is a bit winy, but the BIG problem is: 24 episodes x 11-12 mins a pop… you can watch the whole season in 3 ½ hours! So, one could say it’s a little too fast paced, but I still say it’s worth it. I would say there is blood, but how does an android bleed precisely? I guess it’s just red colored coolant(for effect only, and barely any of it). You will also encounter mild to moderate nudity, and some foul language that only enhances the humor further giving SAK I a 4.8(out of 10) despite the fact that it’s too short, but there is a few OVA’s and a 2nd season(reviews coming up…) Great background noise! I’m using it as that as I Treasure Hunt right now!
