A flyer from this year's AnimeJapan 2017 event revealed on Thursday that the television anime adaptation Rin Fujiki's Vatican Miracle Examiner (Vatican Kiseki Chōsakan) mystery novel series will have 12 episodes and one OVA. The anime will premiere this summer.

Yoshitomo Yonetani (Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma, Brave King GaoGaiGar) is directing the anime at J.C. Staff (The Disastrous Life of Saiki K., Little Busters!). Kazunori Iwakura (Aria the Scarlet Ammo, Ai Yori Aoshi) is designing the characters, and Seishi Minakami (A Certain Scientific Railgun, Heaven's Memo Pad) is in charge of series composition.

The novels center on Hiraga Josef Kō, a genius scientist, and Roberto 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.
