Wow. That ending. I totally didn’t expect that at all.
This series was one of the most underrated this summer season and most of the time, snobbed by most of the anime watchers. Thank God it didn’t suck. It’s one of the unique animes I had seen in a long time. This gave me the suspense and thrill that I was looking for all through out summer.
As you can see from the anime pic above, it screams Religion, Christianity, specifically, the Roman Catholic. Even me, I was even skeptical about this series, but I still give it a shot. It has an interesting premise afterall. Miracle Examiners traveling all over the world to investigate miracles. Bruh. From this premise itself, its legit Lit. Well, I’m kinda biased. I love to read books and gain knowledge. Uncovering secrets and discovering conspiracy around religion is one of my favorite topics. Hehehehe.
What I really like about this series was the fact that the series didn’t shove religion to the faces of the viewers. The story was told in a way where there was a balance between faith and skepticism. Every time the main characters, Roberto & Hiraga, discovers something that looks like a miracle, they investigate every inch of it, to know if it was real or not. It usually led them to a bizarre set of events, from murders to weird but interesting conclusions. It was really thrilling. I can’t thinking about the series. It was kinda hard to wait for 7 days for the next episode. It was that hard. Every episode, every arc, the suspense and thrill won’t stop coming. The music and animation added more impact to the anime. It was an exhilarating experience.
This anime was a surprise. I never knew I would enjoy every minute of the series. I would totally recommend this to anyone, especially to the people who likes conspiracies and theories about religion.
That is all.
