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.

Vatican Miracle Examiner is, in essence, the campiest version of The Exorcist it will ever be your pleasure to enjoy.

The Story:
Two miracle-auditing priests are tasked finding the missing half of a small piece of word with the word “RICH” on it. Also incidentally they are asked to see what’s going on with a nun from the parish where the piece of wood came from, who seems to have undergone an Immaculate Conception. And it gets spooky and dumb quickly.

The story grabbed me immediately. Catholic imagery suits horror and mystery so well. I know from many years of firsthand experience that the Catholic Church read more

A birth by god, or the devil.

Two vatican investigators are sent to check on claims of a virgin birth, and stumble upon a dark mystery, least how the first arc goes.

Story: not sure where it will go from there, but I enjoyed the first arc, even if it went a bit overboard campy, but in a good way, I'm curious to see where it will go. It so far seems to be handling the catholic stuff well, nothing that offends me or I think is bothersome.

Art: Nice use of shadows and art to give the feel of horror and read more

spoiler alert

the story is original , it talks about two priests from the vatican who investigate the reports of the miracles and confirm it if really happened.hope it gets more supernatural than scientific explains in the next episodes.

one thing this anime succeed in is that it's very mysterious. i couldn't know what is going to happen next in every episode.it gives too much details and information, and finally use them all in the solution of the case, which is good, you never noticed that this simple information could help!

this is not a show about characters , characters can't have much time to get you read more

Vatican Kiseki Chousakan is a very japanese take on the rites of the catholic church, so don't expect an accurrate documentary-like representation of its subject matter. It goes for a seinen style keeping with it's intention to focus on a more mature audience, it's more like an anime soap opera.

Its stong points are the story and setting, as it is a fantasy mystery/horror. The setting so far has been a catholic academy, so we get many of the classics of the mystery genre like the chapel, gronds and such.

Characters are nothing special, they might surprise you sometimes but they are there mostly to develop the read more
