Fathers Josef Kou Hiraga and Roberto Nicholas are Vatican Miracle Examiners who investigate the authenticity of miraculous phenomena reported from all over the world. In every seemingly sacred event lies horrors of hidden conspiracies, mysterious murders, and devil worship. In this battle of good and evil, Hiraga, a scientific and mathematical genius, and Roberto, a polymath in linguistics and classics, must work together to bring the truth to light. Will their friendship and faith endure the evils in their journey to find a true miracle?

Furthermore, as much as I love the premise, the writing is undeniably super amateurish and feels like a novel you'd find in the ...

An anime about people uncovering the truth behind allegedly miracles with science? Well, sign me up; that was my first thought. Now that I finished it, I wish I just hadn't signed up for this at all.

The first problem to point out is the opening and ending, I don't why someone thought that mixing animation with real footage would be a good ideia because it turned out so bad that I'm not even sure how to say anything about this, so let's move on to another problem: how the miracles are solved. They're supposed to use science to solve them and they kinda do ...
