Yuukoku no Moriarty
A battle of brains between two very smart characters. We see things from both sides, and are able to understand their way of thinking. They both focus on human inequality and injustice, good and evil, and the value of human life.

Moriarty and Death Note are similar in the fact that both anime focus on main protagonists with noble goals about improving the world, who end up using crime as a means to achieve those goals. In this regard, both anime deal with themes of morals and justice in an interesting and thought-provoking way, avoiding a black-or-white sense of morals in favor of a more nuanced storytelling.

Both of the main characters are extremely intelligent and are attempting to change aspects of the world even if it means killing another being. The antagonist is equally as intelligent and are attempting to catch the criminal who is the main character.

Anime is based on the stories by Arthur Conan Doyle (who created the fictional character, Sherlock Holmes). William and Light are very similar, both willing to kill people if it means purifying the world of people who cause harm to society. Sherlock Holmes is like L as they are both trying to find out who is killing people around their countries.

Both follow highly intelligent anti-hero protagonists who rid the world of bad people by killing them. The genius antagonists in both are also just as likeable and interesting as the protagonists. In both series, the battles of wits and elaborate plots are quite fun to watch.

- Both series revolve around an anti-hero protagonist. - Both protagonists wish to change the world by immoral means. - The protagonist and the primary antagonists face each in a battle of wits. - Both lack major-action and rely most on mental battle royale.

Both mcs (Light and William) try to make the world better. But it doesn't go as easy because of the the other mc (L and Sherlock) are also very smart and try to find out who is behind all the k*lling. Both very intersting storys and caracters!
report Recommended by Star1309
Even though a completely different setting, they both have very similar energies between the antagonist and the protagonist. While both follow their own sense of justice and try to outsmart each other. I think they feel pretty similar and have a similar writing style.
report Recommended by Schlong01
Both main characters have similar psychology. It is practically another Death Note without Death Note. I highly recommend watching both. You will not be disappointed. Both have a strong psychological view of a story that confuses the viewer that which side they should root for.
report Recommended by PR0TAKU
Both focus on the theme of justice and mind games in similar ways

Riddles, of course. In both series we have a war of two great minds, you don't know who to cheer for! The main character is a riddle... Antagonist or Protagonist?

Both of them are about Punishing criminals with a smart main character Its highly similar to death note

Craving for another battle of wits between two morally ambiguous 'heroes'? Moriarty the Patriot is a re-imagining of Sherlock Holmes' story, where the two main characters clash in a battle of wits while navigating the murky waters of 'morality' in their own way. One has just ideals and reasons but questionable means while the other albeit heroic in the traditional sense has more selfish reasons for his heroic conduct. If you're feeling empty after finishing Death Note and want your next fix of non-tradtional heroes striving towards their goals one mind game at a time look no further!

MC is an anti-hero who will do anything for 'justice', in this case, the 'justice' is the destruction of England's aristocracy system. A genius detective is hunting the MC down. It's deathnote set in 20th century England.

Would definitely recommend this series if you like death note! (No spoilers) -both tell a compelling story of wit and tactics -a lot of morals here come into play much like death note -in my opinion it also gives that same thrill when you watch death note and it being based off the original sherlock holmes makes it even better you get to see a different point of view Overall this series is just amazing as well! I'd say it's like death note but in a historical time period in a way :)

Main characters are antiheroes, they both commit crime hoping to create a better world (the end justify the means-idea), and both stories have 'good' detectives wanting to stop these antiheroes.

Both feature a genius protagonist who wants to change the world and a genius oponent who works to catch him, its also a very interesting reinterpretation for anyone who likes Sherlock Holmes

Both anime portray a young morally complex mastermind who sets out his plan to change the world for the better in his own way of understanding it. Such plot naturally leads to his confrontation with the law and the current world order resulting in an intelectual contest, a cat and mouse chase, between him and his lawful nemesis. If you liked either of the series, I have little doubt you will enjoy the other too. Nevertheless, they both differ significantly. First, Light (Death Note) is rather self-centered and expresses a clear desire to change the world so he can be on top of it. On   read more

Before I get into my similarities, I consider this show to be very similar to Death Note just without the supernatural aspects. 1) Both shows have a main character that's somewhat a detective. Light and Moriarty both being consultants or somewhat similar. 2) Both are absolutely smart and come up with plans to ensure their victory. 3) Both characters have equally smart "antagonistic" force that is chasing after them trying to take them down. 4) Both are the "villains" of their story. 5) Both shows explore the line between what's right and what's wrong.

The shows follow a similar plot. The main character wants to reform society by purging the problem that corrupts it. Throughout the story both characters are being tailed by a sharp-witted detective that wants to solve their case. Both characters are fantastically designed, the side characters for both anime's are loveable and Moriarty the Patriot all around feels like the Victorian successor to Death Note.

well, they both have big brains mc and there is a rivalry between a criminal and a detective.

Both contain very intelligent characters fighting with each other. The protagonist is killing 'bad people' to create a perfect world. The antagonist is a detective trying to stop and uncover them.

Both mystery anime, main characters are motivated by similar things, but Liam solos, he's not a stupid wh*re with a god complex, or an ugly little rat twerking or something on someone's grave. Light's so ugly if he looked in mirror he would write his own name in the Death Note

both protagonists want to ''cleanse'' the world by making criminals disappear
report Recommended by Miuyri
The MC's are incredibly intelligent. Both MC's are on a mission to create a new world on a noble cause and use crime and death to eradicate a certain group of people to purify the world. I conclude that both anime are mysterious and has a very interesting plot.
report Recommended by Eeniechan
it's kind of like the same dynamic between L and Light, but with the literal Sherlock homes and a criminal genius. Plus this man will plan out to kill noblemen to reform their society to a more just world, where everyone was treated equally. Honestly a really good watch, but you can see the similarities just by that short description lol
