Yuukoku no Moriarty Spoilers

In the late 19th century, ‘Yuukoku no Moriarty’ is set in a world where the British Empire dominates everyone else. Along with that, class stratification is also pretty normal in most parts of the world. Due to this, most middle-class folks only get poorer while the rich only get richer. Consequently, the nobles remain where they are while the others below them have no chance of rising up to the top.

William James Moriarty is the main character of the series. Many Sherlock fans would recall him as the antagonist of the Sherlock universe. William is the second son of the renowned Moriarity household. For his age, he is somewhat of a genius and also a mathematics professor at a university. Even his two brothers, Albert and Louis, are pretty much like him and enjoy the perks of being pure nobles. Even outside in the real world, William does his part but helping people in every possible way he can. However, because of his nobility, many believe that he has ulterior motives. Not to mention, despite portraying a better side of himself to the outside world, he leads a merciless group of people who want to make changes to the world according to their own will.

All in all, ‘Yuukoku no Moriarty’ brings its own take at one of the best characters of Sherlock. We’ve seen way too many adaptations of Sherlock and recently, Enola Holmes has had her own adaptation. But when it comes to Moriarty, we might still have some ground to cover.
