View Full Version : Chrno Crusade Review of Episode 1
Chrno Crusade is the story of two exorcists who go on ghost hunting missions in 1923 New York. Rosette is your typical spunky over the top girl who jumps into dangerous situations, risking hers, and her partners life. Chrno is a mysterious young man who helps Rosette on her journeys. He seems to be a very calm, collected individual who analyzes situations carefully. Course he always has to jump in and rescue Rosette from her mistakes, so careful planning goes right out the window.
The first episode was badass! As I said in the chrno crusade trailer thread, this series is basically a mix of Hellsing and Noir, from the creators of Scrapped Princess. Voice actress seems the same for Rosette as it is for Pacifica. The art is fantastic, and the music matches perfectly.

I gather from the episode that chrno is supposed to be a devil of somesort
some sort of demon indeed. Cant wait to see how it turns out :D
Downloading the first episode now... :D
This has been a great year of anime!:bigthumb:
hellz yes, i just finished watching Full metal Alchemist ep 8. I think it might very well be my new favorite series (for stuff that aint out over here yet). Used to be Kaleido Star, but FMA is just so badass!
I took a pic of Chrno! :D
how come yer screenshots arent as good as mine? :D
honestly, I just uploaded that so I could link it to another site where I could use it as an avatar... sadly, the size limit is 80x80 there.
BTw, you seen episode 2 yet?? Really good episode! :D Kind of a cliffhanger of an ending... Well, not really a cliffhanger, more of a, "Eww, that's gross! What happens next??"
i downloaded episode 2 but i havent seen it yet. I spent the last couple hours downloading and watching a weird series called Shingetsutan Tsukihime. I've also seen it called True Lunar Chronicle Tsukihime. It apparently has 8 episodes out so far, and i've seen the first 4 only. I'll give a decent review with some screenshots up soon enough but here's a little tidbit of story info to get you excited :D
Tohno Shiki is a high school student with a rather troubled past. He was in an accident in which he lost his memory when he was a young boy. After the incident he developed the weird ability to see mysterious lines on everything around him. If he makes precise cuts along the lines, the object, living or not, will be completely destroyed. A mysterious woman calling herself a mahou tsukai (mage, wizard) comes to him and gives him some eye glasses to make the lines disappear. She tells him to never take em off until the day when he'll need to.
Pretty weird idea for a story, but the first 4 episodes were pretty damn awesome :) Getting 4-8 atm, will watch em tomorrow.
I watched Chrno Crusade episode 1 and it seems pretty good. I looked up some info and it is by a different studio then the one that did Scrapped Princess though, and the VA for Pacifica and Rosette are different as well :P (Just thought I would point that out).
hehe ah well, cant win em all
just watched episode 2 and it is indeed awesome. Also watched Read or Dream TV 13, good stuff :P
