I read the first volume of manga in a bookstore a while ago...it seems pretty interesting and the art is decent.
(Chrono's character design seems a lot like a black-haired Ed tongue.gif)
I'd like to have a chance to finish reading the manga and watch the anime as well (which I heard was extremely tragic...). rolleyes.gif

Does anyone know how long the manga is? How many vols. it goes to?
I love Rosette! She's so funny and she's pretty tragic too.

I love this manga so much, but not the anime. ^^;
The manga is better than the anime, the characters are more complex and it's not really as cliche as other manga out there.

But yes, this is my second favorite...FMA still takes first...(Maybe that's why I wrote that crossover fic...XD)

Yeah i have the first 2 volumes and i have to admit its pretty good! smile.gif

Chrono Crusade was like...awesome. I've been waiting here in the U.S. for like...5 months for volumes 7 and 8 to come out.
I had to order 7 offline...and I bought 8...read it in an hour...and ended up very depressed.
It was a depressing manga...I only watched the first DVD to the anime. I think I like the manga a bit better....but the anime could be just as good, I dunno^^;;
All in all, it was great.

I've watched all the anime and own all the manga. I like how they changed it in the anime, not because i like that ending better but because you come to expect something and Bam! its totally different and thats what i like. I'm glad that there are a lot more people who appreciate Chrono Crusade *grins* i really really am cause i love it to peices.
