Great Britain is ablaze with news of a so-called "Lord of Crime," a criminal mastermind responsible for the downfall of several unruly nobles. In truth, the Lord of Crime is not an individual, but rather a group consisting of William James Moriarty and his two brothers, Louis and Albert. Together, they wish to destroy everything rotten about their current world and create a new, fair society for all. To accomplish their goal, they must commit criminal acts, which the great detective Sherlock Holmes and his partner, John H. Watson, cannot abide by. A dangerous cat and mouse game begins between the Lord of Crime and Sherlock, with each trying to outwit the other. Yet Sherlock, despite his skills, has no idea that his foe is right under his nose.

Involved with both parties is a woman named Irene Adler, who is as beautiful as she is cunning. No stranger to scandal, Irene has embroiled herself in one that may be too big even for her, as the classified documents she stole could shake the very foundations of the British Empire. Can Irene be saved, or does a deadly future await her?

Yuukoku no Moriarty is an intepretation of the famous novels written by Arthur Conan Doyle, and it's clone in a pretty clever way.

I'll try to explain down below why I highly recommend watching this anime, without spoiling anything. However, I'll talk about some "minor" elements from the first part of this show, so beware if you haven't watched it.

Mixed Feelings
The second season brings more characters, which I thought was unnecessary for the plot and even made the main story worse because several of these new characters did not have a very good deepening, which meant that in the end several characters were left aside and without any purpose.

The interaction between Moriarty and Sherlock Holmes is still great and even better than the first season, they manage to transmit a feeling of friendship and love that maybe is the purpose of the anime, and for me that was the highlight of the anime, I even wish they had more time together in the end.

The ending ...

I already covered the first season so I won’t go over the basics again but I will compare the two for a bit to better stablish why I think the second season is slightly better, there are spoilers but who cares, everyone already watched this show.

In terms of visuals, the second season got rid of the stupid red and brown horror like filters and features more action scenes with ok enough motions. In terms of sound the opening and endings were better, albeit still pretty forgettable.

The best aspect of the second season was reducing a lot the amount of purely evil one dimensional nobles that ...
