... what is written in the background of the front cover of each volume of Tokyo babylon?

The quote is from the Bible. More precisely Revelations in the New Testament, Genesis chapter 11.
  1. Now the whole world had one language and a common speech.
  2. As men moved eastward, they found a plain in Shinar and settled there.
  3. They said to each other, "Come, let's make bricks and bake them thoroughly." They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. Then they said, "Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves and not be scattered over the face of the whole earth."
  4. But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower that the men were building.
  5. The Lord said, "If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them.
  6. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other."
  7. So the Lord scattered them from there over all the arth, and they stopped building the city.
  8. That is why it was called babel - because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world.
From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth.
This is about the construction of the tower of Babel and thus the city of Babylon.

... what is the chronology of the Tokyo Babylon manga and anime?

  • Manga tankouban 1-2
  • OAV 1 (approximately). Hokuto uses her "lipstick" spell (manga #2), Seishirou uses his shiki-gami (manga #2)
  • Manga tankouban 3-4
  • OAV 2 (approximately). The opening sequence is more or less straight from manga tankouban #1 but otherwise... Seishirou uses same method on Kumiko Nagi (manga #4). And it would have to be before manga #5 considering that Seishirou's appearance hasn't changed.
  • Manga tankouban 5-7
  • Tokyo Babylon 1999
