Moriarty the Patriot is based on the ongoing manga written by Ryōsuke Takeuchi and illustrated by Hikaru Miyoshi. The manga has 15 tankōbon volumes as of this August. 

The first cour of the anime premiered in October 2020, while the second cour premiered in April 2021. 

AnimeLab describes the anime as:

Before he was Sherlock’s rival, Moriarty fought against the unfair class caste system in London by making sure corrupt nobility got their comeuppance. But even the most well-intentioned plans can spin out of control – will Moriarty’s dream of a more just and equal world turn him into a hero… or a monster?
