The year is 1928. Jazz is hot, bootleg liquor is king and the idle rich of a nation have discovered a horrifying new past-time: summoning demons! To combat this growing threat, a new order of Holy Warriors has arisen. This is the story of Sister Rosette, an elite Exorcist in the Order of Magdalene, whose soul has been bound by alchemy to that of the devil Chrono. Armed with Sacred ammo, they form an unstoppable team, ready to wage war at a moments notice because when the gates of hell are opened, someones got to put the devils back!
In this offbeat comedy-adventure, the sisters of the Magdalene Order might sing, "How do you solve a problem like Rossette." It's 1928, and the hedonistic culture of Prohibition America has fueled a rise in Satanism. Sister Rossette is a klutzy, gun-toting exorcist-cum-devil-hunter who wrecks cars, blows up buildings and generally adds to the problems of her superiors. Rossette's more level-headed partner Chromo tries to minimize the damage. He's a devil (literally), but he's bound to Rossette by psychological and magical ties. The supporting cast includes handsome Father Remington, stern Sister Kate, lecherous inventor Elder, and Azmaria, a mysterious child soprano. Chrono Crusade recalls numerous other anime series that pit nubile heroines against devils and demons, but the constant references to holy water, the Vatican, the Prophecies of Fatima, etc. add weird overtones that may offend religious viewers. (Rated 15 and older: violence, grotesque imagery, risqué humor, bizarre religious imagery) --Charles Solomon
The DVD arrived earlier than scheduled, it was in excellent shape. The price was a good selling point. The shipping cost is pre-set but reasonable. Read morePublished on July 3, 2013 by ROBERT B.
I enjoyed watching this anime a lot. I especially liked Chrono's and Rosette's relationship. The thing is that I hated the ending. Read morePublished on October 7, 2007 by HatsumiShinogu

this show has copied off of other Gonzo shows and makes this the most unoriginal Gonzo show yet. The plotline is very similar to Hellsing and so are the characters. Read morePublished on December 6, 2004 by RahXephon77 anime otaku!
