In the late 19th century, the British Empire has become a global power. Due to the strict class stratification, the average citizen has little chance of successfully rising up to the top, where the despicable nobility rules over them all.

William James Moriarty, the second son of the Moriarty household, is a young mathematics professor who has displayed great cunning and intellect since he was a child. Along with his brothers Albert and Louis, he lives the simple life of a noble. Outside of school, William is a well-known private consultant willing to solve the problems of anyone in need. However, his gentle demeanor belies his position as the head of a group prepared to wreak havoc in pursuit of its desire—a new world built from the ashes of the old.

Yuukoku no Moriarty puts a new spin on Arthur Conan Doyle's original work by putting the spotlight on its main antagonist and exploring how he came to be the first and only "criminal consultant."

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Yuukoku no Moriarty has been published in English as Moriarty the Patriot by VIZ Media under the Shonen Jump imprint since October 6, 2020.

To start off Sherlock, the original Sherlock Holmes stories are held true to my heart. It’s quite difficult to find an adaptation of Sherlock that stays true to the characters while also taking a unique approach, that’s where Yuukoku No Moriarty comes in.

Having a story from Moriarty’s point of view is deeply fascinating, I am fascinated both by this and the concept that accompanies it as the story addresses the fundamental problems with corruption within the upper class and the police enforcement.

For me this concept helps me draw away from my growing frustration of
“really another story in the Victorian Era?”

Preliminary (21/? eps)
I like the Sherlock Holmes novels, with the exception of The Sign of the Four.
It is an intriging idea to show it from the perspective of Moriarty. Of course Moriarty is way older in the original and has not that much screentime. But I am not a purist, so who cares?

It would have been way better if they had shown only the perspective of Moriarty. Sherlock's appearances should have been something special that triggers strong emotions, like when Johann appears in Monster: Short but intense. But some chapters have more "Sherly" than "Liam".

The art style is terrible. The characters all look almost ...

An astounding waste of potential.

I was rooting for this manga to work, really. I started with the first anime season (that I watched three times in a row), then read the manga because everyone was hyping it up... and everything went downhill from there.
Don't believe people who tell you that it's an "eat the rich" story, because it's not.

The good:
- the art (it's pretty much carrying the manga at this point)
- the first three volumes
