Chrono Crusade

Guest Author - Lesley Aeschliman

Chrono Crusade is based on a manga by Daisuke Moriyama. The anime series follows the manga through the first half, but then diverges into its own story after the halfway point.

Chrono Crusade is set in the United States during the 1920s. Rosette Christopher is the main character of the series, and she's an impulsive 16-year-old girl who is an elite exorcist for The Order of Magdalene. Rosette is part of The Order of Magdalene in order to search for her lost brother, Joshua Christopher.

The Order of Magdalene is an organization of the Catholic Church that banishes devils and demons to Hell. Rosette works for the New York branch of the Order, which is headed by Sister Kate Valentine and Father Ewan Remington. Sister Kate is a strong-willed woman that leads the order with an iron resolve. Father Remington is the Minister of the Magdalene Order; he is also a field agent and second-in-command to Sister Kate.

Rosette's partner is a demon named Chrono. When Rosette was 11, she made a contract with Chrono. As part of the contract, Chrono feeds off of Rosette's soul as an alternative to the astral energy he got from his horns (his horns were taken by Aion, the main antagonist of the series). Rosette has the power to unseal Chrono's true devil state, but it comes with the cost of Chrono taking more of Rosette's life. It turns out that Chrono had formerly helped Aion. However, when Aion ordered Chrono to kill Mary of Magdalene, Chrono refused because he was in love with her. Now, 50 years later, Chrono has fallen in love with Rosette. During the series, Rosette and Chrono travel around the country to eliminate the demonic threats to society.

Chrono Crusade does have some sexual innuendo, due in large part to the character of Edward "Elder" Hamilton. He makes the weapons used by the exorcists, but he can also be a bit of a pervert. Between the sexual innuendo and some of the violence in Chrono Crusade, I would recommend this series to anime viewers who are 15 or 16 years of age and older.
