The war of minds between Moriarty and Sherlock is starting back up soon with the second part of the Moriarty the Patriot TV anime premiering in April 2021. Ahead of the brain games, a new trailer was released featuring the two masterminds from the stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
The TV anime of Moriarty the Patriot is adapted from the manga of the same name written by Ryosuke Takeuchi and illustrated by Hikaru Miyoshi and re-tells Doyle’s stories from the point of view of Moriarty. The manga is serialized in Shueisha’s Jump Square, with an English language version available from Viz Media. Funimation, who streams the series, describes the story of Moriarty the Patriot as such:
In the late 19th century, the British Empire nobility reigns while its working class suffers at their hands. Sympathetic to their plight, William James Moriarty wants to topple it all. Frustrated by the systemic inequity, Moriarty strategizes to fix the entire nation. Not even consulting detective Sherlock Holmes can stand in his way. It’s time for crime to revolutionize the world!
