The anime series Chrono Crusade premiered in Japan on Fuji TV on November 23, 2003 and ran for twenty-four episodes until its conclusion on June 10, 2004. Produced by Gonzo Digimation, the series is adapted from the first three volumes of the eight volume manga series of the same name by Daisuke Moriyama across the first thirteen episodes. The remainder of the series is primarily an original story line that occasionally still pulls from the source manga, which was incomplete at the time the anime series finished.

The anime was licensed for release in North America by ADV Films. The company's English dub of the series was broadcast in the United States on Showtime Beyond from February 17, 2006 through July 28, 2006. ADV released the episodes across seven individual DVD volumes before releasing the entire series in a single box set collection.

The series uses two pieces of theme music. "Tsubasa wa Pleasure Line" (翼は Pleasure Line Tsubasa wa Pureshā Rain?, Wings Are Pleasure Line), by Minami Kuribayashi, is used for the series' opening theme while Saeko Chiba's "Sayonara Solitaire" (さよならソリティア Sayonara Soritia?, Farewell Solitaire) is used for the ending theme.
