It is the early 1920s, and New York City has a problem of evil proportions – demons. With devil worshipping on the rise, foul spirits and monsters have begun to surface, causing fear and panic in their wake. Combating this threat is the Magdalene Order – a group of religious officials charged with exorcising the evil that is spreading throughout the city. Rosette Christopher is a young nun who takes on missions alongside her contracted partner – a young demon named Chrono. Now it is up to this unlikely pair to wield God’s power – and plenty of holy bullets – to destroy the menace in front of them and confront the demons of their past.
The Holy Grail War is a battle between seven magicians who each summon a mythical hero to fight for their cause. Shirou, a twice orphaned high school boy, had so little magical talent that his foster father did not bother teaching him about the war and its meaning. Thanks to that lack of foresight, Shirou finds himself in a bit of a pinch when he accidentally summons a hero of the strongest class, and is sucked into the fray. The Grail grants the winner any wish they have. But driven by an unyielding sense of justice and self-sacrifice, for what will Shirou fight?
In the beginning, both Chrono Crusade and Fate/stay night seem to be simple, but develop due to a massive yet unexpected turn of events and emotions. Also, they are both based around the Christian religion (though Fate/stay night is minimal in this regard and focuses only on the Holy Grail).
While Fate/Stay Night might be a bit more active and modern than Chrono Crusade, both of their plots run deeper than expected at first. When things gain a darker atmosphere, the characters and their actions start reminding you of each other more and more.
Ikko is a Buddhist monk in training who works at his grandmother’s temple with six nuns -- six very attractive nuns. Though lazy, weak and unmotivated to learn the skills of a monk, amazingly strong holy powers sleep inside of Ikko that are triggered only by the awakening of his, shall we say, lust for worldly delights. A vengeful spirit is haunting your home? A flash of pantsu, and Ikko's your man. But therein lies danger; what really is the secret behind his mysterious powers? And how many hits to the head from angry, semi-naked nuns can a man take?
Both Chrono Crusade and Amaenaideyo are about exorcising demons or ghosts, and they have an element of sacrifice for the good of other people. They also are funny in some way and make you want to watch more.
Death and reincarnation are inescapable, but what happens in between? Without warning and without his memories, a boy who only recalls his last name - Otonashi - wakes up next to a girl named Yuri who offers him a gun and tells him to shoot an angel. Assuming it must be a misunderstanding, Otonashi is then almost killed by the angel and is drawn into Yuri's army to battle to delay the beginning of his next life. Immortality is within reach, but if Otonashi remembers how he died, will he keep fighting or allow himself to vanish?
Both Angel Beats and Chrono Crusade have violent slapstick comedy, a large cast of fleshed-out characters struggling to deal with dark pasts, at times dark drama, and several tear-jerking moments that build up to a climax that'll have you bawling. They both also struggle with themes of fate, religion and starcrossed lovers. I'm a bit biased--I prefer the Chrono Crusade manga to the anime--but either version of CC matches well with Angel Beats!, and vice-versa. If you're a fan of one, check out the other, I think you'll find a lot to like in both.
Sakura Kinomoto never imagined that by opening a book in her father's library, she'd be responsible for releasing wild magic into the world, yet that's exactly what she did. Too powerful to be let loose on the world, the magical Clow cards were sealed away long ago by their creator, Clow Reed. But all is not lost, for the guardian beast, Keroberos, was sealed along with the cards! Can Sakura, with the help of Keroberos, retrieve the cards before they wreak havoc on the town?
Both of these animes have both a male and female protaganist in them. They both work together to solve problems and they both fall for each other. They have battle scenes and 'demons'* in them both as well as several calmer episodes in them.
Although Chrono Crusade is darker than Cardcaptor Sakura they both have a very similar feeling to them. CCS has no religion topic in it and that is probably the biggest difference between the two.
I reccomend that you watch this anime if you haven't seen it as i think you will enjoy it if you did the other.
*The clow cards forms are kind of like demons.
