Well in the english translation Crona is female. I hoped she would be cause she only wears dresses. The manga follows the anime really closely that's why I refuse to re-read what I just saw. However I do like the cover arts on the graphic novels.

manga follows the anime
The anime series faithfully adapts the plot of the manga until DWMA's first major battle against Arachnophobia, at which point it deviates from the manga's plot considerably. After giving DWMA information on Arachnophobia, Medusa takes advantage of Stein's increasing madness to lure him away with her. Crona leaves DWMA with teacher and death scythe Marie Mjolnir, and the two manage to bring back Stein after Maka defeats Medusa. Meanwhile, Arachne finds Asura and forms an alliance with him, intending to spread his madness across the world. Shinigami and Asura resume their fight in the ensuing confrontation between DWMA and Arachnophobia, which ends with Asura defeating Shinigami, turning on Arachne, and eating her soul. Maka defeats Asura in the final battle, and the world returns to normal.

The thing is anime moves faster than manga, a manga writer generally has a mount to get a chapter or more out the door to keep up with the monthly magazine they work with. Anime development is fast and investors want a return and Source material runs out fast and the writers have to get creative. You can notice it in Soul Eater with the drastic drop off in quality during the last 13 episodes as Soul Eater drags it's pre source material run out stuff out which is unusual for studio Bones. Not to mention that whole Maka and Crona malarkey is basically a more watered down version of the current Naruto, Sasuke arc that fuels the entirety of Naruto's plot, but unlike that the context is really sudden and weak and it tries to squeeze it self into a plot with already a lot going on. Until that point Maka was a rather compelling character that I was interested to see where she went. If it wasn't bad enough in an already pretty good series (I.E a stain on the name), it's brought to an anti-climatic boil in the rushed post source material ending of the anime. Not to say the anime is bad, but it's flaws are more apparent when it damages established characters and settings. But that's just me.
