Yuukoku no Moriarty Spoilers

‘Yuukoku no Moriarty’ is set in the late 19th Century. The British Empire rules all. Class stratification is a strict norm. As a result, normal citizens suffer and have no chance of rising above their impoverished lifestyles. Meanwhile, the rich get richer, rolling in their entitlement and nobility.

The anime’s protagonist is William James Moriarty. He’s the second son of the Moriarty household, quite prodigal for his age, and pretty young to be the mathematics professor that he is. His brother, Albert and Louis, are no less, and together, all three of them live lives of sheer nobility. Simple but complete lives. Beyond the walls of his school, William lends a helping hand to anyone who needs it. But despite all these acts of kindness, William exuberates a sense of cognitive dissonance. As well-intentioned as he may seem, he leads a group that shows no mercy towards others and is determined to change the world.

Put simply, ‘Yuukoku no Moriarty’ is a whole new take on Arthur Conan Doyle’s classics. Instead of focusing on the author’s protagonists, the anime sheds some light on the brilliance of the antagonist, who later came to be known as the only “criminal consultant.”
