Vatican Miracle Examiner Manga Adaptation Ends in December
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Anju Hino's manga adaptation of Rin Fujiki's Vatican Miracle Examiner (Vatican Kiseki Chōsakan) mystery novel series will end with the 27th chapter in the January 2019 issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Gene magazine in December. The 26th chapter (seen below) debuted in the magazine's December issue on Thursday.
Hino launched the manga in the magazine in August 2016, and the fourth compiled book volume shipped in July.
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 ongoing novel 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. The series has more than 1.35 million copies in print.
Eiji Kaneda previously drew a two-volume manga adaptation of the novels, and Kadokawa published the second compiled volume in January 2014.
The novels also inspired a television anime series that premiered in July 2017, as well as an OVA that debuted last April.
