With season one of Moriarty the Patriot being a surprising mix of solid narrative arcs and somewhat less thrilling ones, I entered season two hoping for more of the same and perhaps a building on the overall thrill. Unfortunately like many sequels in 2021, Moriarty the Patriot Season 2 ended up feeling somewhat lacking. Be sure to read the full review.
We're back to sit and wait as Moriarty spends the entire episode on a couch while every other character plays out the plot. This series has definitely lost its shine.
A fun little chase sequence and a plan that shouldn't work but is fun to watch breathes some life into this season of Moriarty. Will it hold onto this energy going into the next episode?
Well it was kind of inevitable we'd get a Jack the Ripper story in Moriarty the Patriot eventually. I wonder how they'll resolve it here?
The arc involving Irene and her stolen papers concludes with some great moments, some interesting choices, and one moment which just had me wondering 'why?'. Here are my thoughts on episode 14 of Moriarty the Patriot.
The story of Irene continues and this episode has far more focus on Albert Moriarty. Things are definitely shaping up in this story and I'm curious as to where we're going with it all.
We're back in Victorian London, a setting that anime has well and truly visited before, and once again taking on Sherlock's story though this time we're finding out about William James Moriarty. It is an interesting take on the character though I'm not entirely sure they've nailed the execution here.
Not sure if this is so much a 2nd season as the 2nd cour of season one given AnimeLab lists this under season one as episode 12, but whatever. Moriarty the Patriot has returned and done so before my review of season one has even come out (due next week - timing). Well, how does this first episode do?
When I finally get to my review of season 1 of Moriarty the Patriot one of the points I kept getting stuck on was that in order to make Moriarty seem so smart so many other characters ended up feeling like they were being dumbed down. This made me wonder about the difficulties faced in authors creating smart and genius anime characters. - Now with podcast. Why writing smart anime characters isn't easy.
