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!
Based on the fictional characters and work by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Moriarty the Patriot is a brilliant and fascinating premise for a show centered around criminal investigation. The plot centers around two different view points with the story being focused around the 1880's to 1914's England. The first being Moriarty aka James Moriarty, an expert criminal mastermind and crime lord, who likes to bring corporal punishment to those who ask for his help. He often works alongside his brothers to solve crimes and cases by the request of his clients and subordinates. Moriarty is shown to be ruthless and cunning through his acts and has been famously described by Sherlock as the "Napoleon of Crime". Moriarty serves as the antagonist and archenemy of Sherlock Holmes throughout the story. The other side being focused on Sherlock Holmes, a private detective known throughout the world by his acts of solving crimes to the smallest details and often works with his assistant and friend, John Watson. Together, they plan to stop Moriarty's crimes and mischief throughout England before all hell breaks loose. Overall, a really entertaining crime solving series that leads you to expect the unexpected, realizing the smallest details by going beyond thinking about solving crimes, and a classic series by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
I had high expectations before wathing this anime because I really enjoy anything Sherlock Holmes related. Mistery, historical places, differences between social classes, murders, all other deaths, badass genious Moriarty (a criminal mastermind? I don't even care).. So many great elements which contributed to this anime which became one of my favourites. I'M SO EXCITED FOR THE 2ND SEASON! *And the animation design was beautiful, just as beautiful and handsome as the characters teehee
I'm gonna make this short. It isn't your usual sherlock holms story told over and over. This time it puts it main antagonist on spotlight. So far im only 5 episodes in but I got to be honest i'm so glad I gave this anime a chance. It is so far one of my favorites. It does a good job in showing how Moriarty became what he's best known for.. a criminal mastermind.
