OtapediaVatican Miracle Examiner


Based on a mystery light novel series written by Rin Fujiki and illustrated by Thores Shibamoto, Vatican Miracle Examiner is an upcoming anime series that follows Joseph and Robert, two priests sent by the organization Seito no Za (Assembly of Saints, Seat of Saints) to investigate miraculous occurrences all over the world. Their missions include Maria statues and stigmata appearing on a believer, and it is the priests’ job to determine whether the claims are true. Is it the guidance of God or the whispers of Satan that await them on their path?

The novel series began in December 2007 and has since been released in 13 volumes (15 including the reprints of the first two). Vatican Miracle Examiner also has two manga adaptations, one by Kaneda Eiji that ran from 2012 to 2014 and a newer manga by Hino Anjue that started serialization in 2016.
