The anime, on the other hand, gets DarkerAndEdgier towards the end, and comes across as being much more cynical (including a final shot with a monologue lamenting [[AsLongAsThereIsEvil that humans continue in their evil ways, which invites trouble]].

* OvertookTheManga: The manga and anime actually ended within weeks of each other. This still applies, however, because either Moriyama gave no indication how the climax was going to go… or Gonzo didn't care and just made their own ending up.

* DubInducedPlotHole: While not exactly a plot hole in the strictest sense, in the original Japanese dub, Satella's seiyuu [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent sounds just as Japanese as all the other characters]] (who all happen to live in 1920s New York, by the way), while in the dub she has a fairly thick German accent. Therefore, Azmaria's sudden realization that she's German when she calls a hot dog a "wurst" makes the established intelligent girl come off as rather slow.

** An unfortunate case of CriticalResearchFailure on Moriyama's part. This series is set in the 1920's. Problem is, Nevada did not legalize gambling until the 1930's, and Las Vegas did not become a gambling Mecca until the 1950's.
** Vegas is also a rather long way (read: over 2500 miles) from the Order's base in New York. It would take several days to get there by train, which makes the anime's decision to move the casino to Atlantic City, New Jersey – which is close to New York[[labelnote:*]] (about 130 miles by road or rail)[[/labelnote]] and ''was'' a gambling hotspot at the time – understandable.

* ArtisticLicenseGeography[=/=]NoSenseOfDirection: The party's journey from NYC to San Fransisco takes them from New York to the Seventh Bell Orphanage (In Michigan), to Washington DC, to Chicago, and from there to San Fransisco. This route is about 1500 miles longer than it needs to be, especially given how important this mission is to Rosette. Particularly {{egregious}} given the absence of interstate highways, which wouldn't exist for roughly another 30 years. Either Moriyama didn't know better, or Rosette is totally incapable of cross-country navigation.
** For the record, the ''logical'' path would have been to go from NYC, to Seventh Bell, and then San Fransisco. There was no stated plot reason why they had to go to DC at all, and the sole reason they went to Chicago is because that's where the train they were on was going (After wrecking the car in DC).

** As mentioned above, Chapter 3 has Rosette and Chrono pick up Azmaria in Las Vegas, which is over 2500 miles from the Order's headquarters in New York. That a several-day trip by 1920's-era train, and would probably have been impossible by car due to the lack of reliable highways over the Rockies at the time.
*** The anime fixes this by not saying where the casino is, but implying it's in Atlantic City, New Jersey – which is only 130 miles from New York and was a notorious gambling haven in the 1920's.
*** This chapter also [[ArtisticLicenseHistory fudges history]] a bit – there's no way it could have taken place in Vegas, because Nevada did not legalize gambling until 1931 (seven years after this story) and Las Vegas itself did not start to become the casino Mecca it is today until after WWII. In 1924, it was just a sleepy little railroad town in the desert.
** The anime makes a further correction by moving Seventh Bell from Michigan to Upstate New York. Even the closest part of Michigan to New York[[labelnote:*]] (that'd be Detroit)[[/labelnote]] is several hundred miles away and would take over a day to reach by train, probably longer by car given the poor state of roads in 1924.

''Chrono Crusade'' is a {{manga}} started in 1998 by Daisuke Moriyama, which was later adapted into a 2003 {{anime}} by Gonzo. The series was originally known as ''Chrno Crusade'' in Japan due to a typo (or so Moriyama says), but in a recent reissue of the volumes of the manga, the missing "O" was restored to the title [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v43/BrightBlueInk/news_large_chrono02.jpg and highlighted by a flame on it to make sure that it's noticeable.]] Both the manga and the anime were licensed by Creator/ADVFilms in the US; Section 23, one of the company that came out of the ashes of ADV, had the distribution rights to the anime until late 2010 when Creator/{{Funimation}} acquired the distribution rights. The manga is currently unlicensed and out-of-print since their manga branch has been completely dissolved.
