posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The December issue of Kadokawa's Comic Gene magazine is announcing on Tuesday that Rin Fujiki's Vatican Miracle Examiner (Vatican Kiseki Chōsakan) mystery novel series is getting an anime adaptation project.
The novels center on Hiraga Josef Kō, a genius scientist, and Robert Nicholas, an archives and cryptanalysis expert. The two work as a team as the Vatican's "miracle examiners," traveling the world to investigate the authenticity of claims of miracles.
Fujiki launched the series under Kadokawa's Horror Bunko label in 2011. Thores Shibamoto (Trinity Blood character design, Attack on Titan: Before the Fall illustrator) designs the covers of the novels. Kadokawa published the 13th novel volume on February 25, and will publish the 14th volume on November 25. The novels have more than 950,000 copies in print.
Anju Hino launched a manga adaptation (pictured below) in Comic Gene's September issue on August 12.
