TV anime Vatican Miracle Examiner (Vatican Kiseki Chousakan!), set to air in Summer 2017, held a talk event during the last day of AnimeJapan2017 at the Kadokawa booth!
Matsukura from the animating studio J.C.Staff and Kato, a producer from Kadokawa, were the stage guests. Director Yonetani sent a video as well. Through the video message, one got the impression that it was easy for him to work with the original novel. He said that he wants to create an anime as close to the original that can be enjoyed for a very long time.
The teaser video was screened for the first time in public:
The main cast includes Nobuhiko Okamoto as Hiraga Josef Kou and Junichi Suwabe as Robert Nicholas. Both actors came on stage as secret guests. They talked about the story of the anime and their characters, and took a lot of pictures! For the very last photo, they posed like their characters do in the key visual!
Comments from the Cast
Okamoto said that he personally has an interest in the Vatican and that he is looking forward to checking the boundaries of the theme. Since his character will say a lot of difficult things, he will give it his all to perform well. He also wants to try the Angel and Demon game. He would be happy if everybody could listen to his reasoning. Because it is more realistic than fantasy, it is not wrong to try and imagine the things happening in real life.
Suwabe said that the title alone is enough to get him excited about the anime. He wonders how Hiraga and Robert will solve the mysteries together. And he asks us to look forward to Vatican Miracle Examiner and see how the characters will come to life in this anime!
