Vatican Miracle Examiner



Quote:
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.
Premise:
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.

Whoa, whoa, this is really happening? :O Nice! I only read a little of this, wanted to save it for a time when I'm not so busy, but I guess I'll wait and watch the anime first.

I just say something like that after seeing the director's name, these people always make a difference.

Yonetani Yoshitomo. A solid choice there.

Oh, horror. When was the last time J.C. did a horror series? I think the last one I watched was Ghost Hunt, and they nailed it with the aesthetics without getting full ham of it.

So will this be like Dantalian no Shoka meets The Exorcist?

Probably not likely to top the anime favorites list at the Vatican. Japanese representations of Catholicism in popular media like anime and games are generally pretty laughable. The most realistic representation I've seen is in Sakamichi no Apollon, and even that's not all that realistic. (Warning, perhaps spoilers.)

What, you mean Kotomine Kirei isn't a realistic representation of Catholic priests?

Actually, about that. In those links the complaints are mostly about Sen wearing the rosary around his neck. Now, as far as I know there's no religious rule about wearing a rosary around one's neck - in many cultures/communities it's not appropriate, but elsewhere it's not a big deal as long as you're not wearing it as an accessory and treat it with respect. In my country for example it's not usually done, but in my (very Catholic) family we have photos of my (very, very Catholic) great-grandmother wearing hers around her neck. I'm not religious myself so I rarely ever go to church, but when I do I sometimes see old ladies wearing their rosaries.

More to the point, though, Sen doesn't wear his rosary out of any particular religious reasons. He wears it because
Spoiler for spoiler:


As for "What A Friend We Have In Jesus", in Japan it apparently doubles as a Catholic hymn and is featured in at least one Catholic hymn collection.

Anyone know who did the main illustration for the novels? The style looks very familiar to me, but I can't put a finger on it.

Thanks! Don't recognize the name, but after doing a search I think I've seen some of their stuff in passing.

I can see why "What a Friend We Have in Jesus" might be played in Japanese Catholic ceremonies given its apparent widespread popular appeal in Japan. It just sounded strange to my American Catholic ear.

I just started re-watching Junketsu no Maria where the Roman Catholic Church plays a big political role. I remember liking those aspects of Maria the first time around; this time I liked them even more.

Don't forget Ao no Exorcist. That's some textbook realism right there.
