The Inquisition is here! Well no, not really. Vatican Kiseki Chousakan (Vatican Miracle Examiner) is a new anime series based on the light novel series of the same title.  I would describe it something like the X-files (without the extra-terrestrial elements) if it was written by Dan Brown (author of The Da Vinci Code). Check out the first promotional video for the series.

 

From the official website:

偽りを見破り、まやかしを退け、神の奇跡にたどりつく。
それが私たち、奇跡調査官の務め—

天才科学者の平賀と、古文書・暗号解読のエキスパート、ロベルト。
二人は良き相棒にして、バチカン所属の『奇跡調査官』──
世界中から寄せられる奇跡の真偽を調査し判別する、秘密調査官だ。
調査に訪れた先で出会う不思議な出来事—浮かび上がる聖痕、涙を流すマリア像。
奇跡の真偽を見定める中に、突如起こった奇怪な事件——
天才神父コンビの事件簿、開幕!

Seeing through lies, driving away deception, eventually reaching a miracle of God… That’s our job – the job of the Vatican Miracle Examiners.

Hiraga, a genius scientist, and Robert, a paleography and cryptanalysis expert, are great partners and Miracle Examiners assigned to the Vatican. They secretly examine and determine whether or not miracles from around the world are authentic. One day, they are called upon to investigate a mysterious happening – stigmata forming and tears falling on a statue of Maria. Whilst they are deciphering whether or not this is a miracle, an unusual incident suddenly occurs…
So begins the tale of these two genius priests and their case file.

 

The series is slated for a July release this year.
