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.Read more ›
It's good to watch several episodes at a time because of the many flashbacks which could be confusing if much time elapses between viewings. The whole thing definitely requires a "willing suspension of disbelief" but once you do that, you'll enjoy it immensely.
This is both an outstanding anime series and packaging deal. If you like anime, please, give it a try! :-)

|How does this version compare to the "Chrono Crusade: Complete Series"...||
I don't have either box set, but I can at least tell you that the old set was on 5 DVDs, and the SAVE edition comes on 4 DVDs, so they may have cut some of the bonus features from the 2011 release. The SAVE release has some new cast interviews and commentary tracks.
