The guest cast for the anime’s two-episode actual video animation (OVA) project was revealed on Friday via the official website for Ryosuke Takeuchi and Hikaru Miyoshi’s Moriarty the Patriot (Ykoku no Moriarty) manga, reports Anime News Network.
Baron George Cupid, an artist whose paintings with a lily motif are immensely famous, will be played by Kenji Hamada. He’s also a generous philanthropist. Hirofumi Nojima and Atsumi Tanezaki are among the other special guests.
“Yuri no Tsuioku” (Recollection of Lily), the OVA’s opening episode, is an anime-original narrative not seen in the manga. The plot revolves around a celebrated aristocracy painter’s work being vandalized in Bath, a British city famous for its Roman fort. The second episode, “Moriarty-ke no Kyjitsu” (Tea Party, or roughly, Moriarty Family Holiday), is based on the same-named comic chapter.
On April 27, two special tiny figure concept sheets and an 8 booklet in a sleeve case drawn by figure designer Tooru Ookubo will be included with the Blu-ray Disc and DVD. On March 5, an advance screening of the first installment will take place at Tokyo’s Nakano Sun Plaza location.
The 24-episode broadcast anime series aired in October 2020. Funimation broadcasted the anime live in Japan and is now broadcasting an English dub. The second part of the anime debuted in April 2021. The 12th installment marked the start of the second half.
James Moriarty, the iconic nemesis from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes novels, is the main character in the novel. In the manga, he is an illegitimate child who takes the moniker William James Moriarty after being accepted into the Moriarty family with his younger brother. He strives to eliminate the injustices produced by England’s severe class structure as a young fellow.
Moriarty The Patriot, a lately popular anime, is a new take on the renowned Sherlock Holmes, told from Moriarty’s point of view. Albert James Moriarty, Earl Moriarty’s eldest child, and the last real Moriarty find oneself at variance with his parents’ anti-commoner attitude.
After learning of their ambitions for the history of Britain, Albert persuades his father to accept the prospective Moriarty and his sibling Louis, widening the chasm between them. Earl Moriarty suffers some horrifying repercussions as a result of this.
