These are the subjective tropes for the anime and manga series ''Manga/ChronoCrusade''.
----
* CriticalResearchFailure:
** The manga has Rosette and Chrono go on a mission to a casino on the UsefulNotes/LasVegas Strip… even though Nevada didn't legalize gambling until 1931 (7 years after the story is set) and Vegas didn't have much of a reputation for casinos until after World War II.
*** The anime has the casino in Atlantic City, which both avoids this and explains why someone from the New York branch of the Order would be sent there (New Jersey being much closer to NYC than Nevada). Doubly smart because, unlike Vegas, Atlantic City ''was'' known as a gambling hotspot during TheRoaringTwenties.
** The manga locates the Seventh Bell Orphanage in Michigan. The problem with that is that (1) Rosette is easily able to get there by car, which is unlikely to have been the case in 1924, in addition to it being hundreds of miles away from New York City; and (2) it's near a lovely mountain lake, but Michigan is pretty flat as far as US states go – ~1400' separate its lowest and highest elevations.
*** The anime fixes both of these problems by putting Seventh Bell vaguely in Upstate New York, probably in the Catskills or Adirondacks.
** One quick shot of Manhattan in the anime appears to show the Empire State Building, which did not exist at the time (it was started in late 1929 and completed in 1931).
** A panning shot in Episode 21 of the anime briefly shows what appears to be the Golden Gate Bridge, which did not open until 1937. Well, it might be the Bay Bridge, but that would make even ''less'' sense.
*** One of the next episode previews also alludes to the bridge. At least in the original Japanese. The English dub writers noticed the error and removed the reference.
** The various bits of {{Engrish}} in the anime – "South Brooklym" on at least two occasions, and a blatant misspelling at the casino courtesy of the "CLAPS" table.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome:
** Try listening to "Tsubasa Wa Pleasure Line" and "Sayonara, Solitia" without feeling the least bit emotional.
** Much of Hikaru Nanase's score is very good and some tunes can tug on your heart strings plenty.
* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: The anime adaptation suffers from this, since (almost) all of the characters die with none of their plans succeeding in any way and the villain – who also dies… [[GainaxEnding maybe]] – never gets any kind of comeuppance. The anime is infamous for [[KillEmAll its killing off]] and/or mental breaking of major characters [[DeathByAdaptation who survive the original manga]]. [[note]] Most notably, Shader, Fiore, and Satella are all alive at the end. Joshua recovered his mind and joined the Order; it's heavily implied he and Az became an item. Steiner does not die during the Battle of San Francisco (though given his advanced age he probably doesn't live too long after). Even Rosette lived for seven years after the final battle instead of the six months she had in the anime – granted in both continuities she spent the entire time on the brink of death.[[/note]]
* EvilIsSexy: Aion, particularly the anime in which he exploits his sex appeal to both draw in allies and screw with the minds of his enemies.
* MindGameShip: Nearly all Aion/Chrono fic portrays the pairing as this.
* {{Moe}}:
** Chrono, considering the horrible luck he has...
** Azmaria's main purpose in the anime and a huge factor to her character in the manga as well.
** Joshua as a kid he seems to be – a bright young boy with feelings of inadequacy and constant illness. When he's older he can sometimes be this way, too, although the fact that he's blissfully working for the villain and absolutely off his nut seems to invoke the opposite reaction in some people.
* NoYay: Joshua/Fiore (which also seems to imply Joshua/Rosette), Aion/Chrono, and the love triangle between Aion, Rizel, and Jenai.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: A large group of demons attack the beach house where Joshua and Fiore are staying. Joshua calmly asks Fiore to go back inside and make him some coffee. By the time she returns with the coffee, Joshua has slaughtered all of them, taking only a minor injury to his hand in return.
* TastesLikeDiabetes: The ChristmasEpisode of the anime. Really, most things involving [[{{Moe}} Azmaria]] in the anime. Not that this is a bad thing.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic: The manga plays it fast and loose with the Christian symbolism. Indeed, come the reveal that the Sinners are [[spoiler:aliens]], one wonders why any of it is there at all. The anime, on the other hand, averts this by playing up the Christian imagery to the hilt and making everything '''''very''''' symbolic.
* TheWoobie:
** Chrono goes through a ''ton'' during the series, particularly taking his backstory into account.
** Azmaria definitely counts as well.
* {{Woolseyism}}: ADV's English dub of the anime added carefully researched 1920's slang into the character's dialogue, and cast an actress reasonably versed in German as Satella.
