Amidst the land, there is an organization that conducts rigorous investigations on "claims of miracles" from all over the world to ascertain their credibility. The organization is referred to as "Seito no Za" (Assembly of Saints) and the priests that belong there are called miracle investigators. Robert Nicholas, an ancient archive and cryptanalysis expert is partnered and good friends with Hiraga Josef Kou, a genius scientist.

This is actually my very first review so bear with me.
-No spoilers in this review

Vatican Miracle examiner is quite unique for an anime in that it explores Christianity, and more specifically Catholicism. There are a few other I won't bother naming, but this one does it quite well I think. It manages to present interesting plot arcs and stories that explore the idea of holy miracles but at the same it doesn't to shove it's religion in your face. What I mean is that anyone who isn't Christian can enjoy this show without ever feeling uncomfortable or offended.

The show has a few distinct read more

Vatican Kiseki Chousakan (Vatican Miracle Examiner) was by no means flawless. And this show was definitely not a masterpiece. However, despite all of its flaws, Vatican Kiseki Chousakan became one of my favorite anime series of the summer 2017 season. I initially picked up this series because I'm a sucker for anything with religion as a theme. To say that this show is unique is saying the least.

Vatican Kiseki Chousakan follows our main characters, Hiraga and Roberto, and their examinations of "miracles." Every arc has a different miracle and a different mystery to examine. Despite having religion as a theme, read more

Intro and premise

As the name would suggests, Vatican Kiseki Chousakan is an anime that uses religious themes while it presents the mysteries in the plot of the show. Overall I thought the anime was good and it managed to maintain a decent balance when it came to the aforementioned religious elements and the story. The various mysteries throughout the course of the show were interesting and well written for the most part. The art was very good and when it needed to be, the same can be said for the animation. The way how the soundtrack was utilized was superb and many of the songs were perfect read more
