This is a four disc version of the series originally published in the US by the now defunct ADV. The original series was released in Japan in 2003/ 2004 and the US in 2006. I've only viewed the Japanese audio with English subtitles, so I can comment on the quality of the Japanese cast, but not on the English dub (since I rarely watch anime in English). The series is 24 episodes and clocks in at 600 minutes.

The series is based on a somewhat interesting idea of Christianity. The series is set in America (New York mostly) in the 1920s. The Order of Magdalene is a sort of fighting sect of an unnamed branch of Christianity. They specialize in exorcising demons, and in true action anime fashion, they do this by beating the baddie senseless first. The action is silly, often over the top, but don't let the goofy fighting sequences throw you off. Underneath is a well told story. In fact, you really have to put your knowledge (if you have any) of Christianity aside as well (much as one has to do for Evangelion).

The story revolves around Chrono, a demon who is assisting the Order in combating Aion, the demon bent on enslaving humanity. There are a lot of interesting stories from the various characters' pasts, but Rosette and Chrono definitely have the darker and more interesting pasts. Throughout the series, the viewer is introduced to their past and the ways in which these two are bonded. What begins as a sort of unwanted partnership develops into a friendship and perhaps something more (no spoilers) - despite the obvious taboo. Throughout the series, the Order and others fear and attempt to manipulate Chrono for their own means, but Rosette continues to defend him. This is the core of the story that is so appealing.

This is a review of the SAVE version but should apply to other versions too. Chrono Crusade is a wasted opportunity. It tells the story of an unusual agreement between a demon and a nun and how they save the world. It's set in the late 1920s although this setting isn't really exploited very well apart from giving the animators the challenge of drawing cars from that period. Baccano does this period so much better.

It weaves several back stories together but doesn't give one of the main stories sufficient prominence. The rise of the sinners such as Chrono and Aion and the conflict that caused them to wage war on the denizens of hell is mentioned but should have occupied more of the episodes.

What really lets this down is the sound track. The opportunity clearly existed to make an anime that was as powerful as corpse princess. The complex nature of the stories, the potential in the milieu, the actual endings all should have made this an easy five out of five anime. It is ruined by some sloppy mistakes such as Brooklym (!), Magdalam and conflicting titles. Also is it Chrono crusade or Chrn crusade? They're used interchangeably.

The biggest crime is the soundtrack. You're being seriously let down if you think you could do better yourself in an afternoon and that's clearly the case. The german accent of Satella Harvenheit is a new low for this accent. Awful. The voices and portrayal of Rosette and Azmaria with their too loud screaming and screeching are offensive to the ears. They ruin the atmosphere of the episodes to such an extent that you'd happily cut them from any scene where they have to speak. This would make the whole thing much shorter and a lot better. The portrayal of Rosette nearly made me stop watching.
