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.
