This is actually a lot darker one would expect from the bishounen looks of the main guy. This series just finished publishing here in Finland and I genuinely liked it. Moriarty's gang basically brings harsh justice to the nobles who commit crimes in secret or misuse their authority to torment the poor. Sherlock is shown as an eccentric genius with lots of faults rather than the usual smart guy who jsut comes to the scene and solves every crime like a hero. The artist for the series, Hikaru Miyoshi, also drew the official Psycho pass manga...

Yes! This and Kemono Jihen getting adapted is well deserved.

I mean, you just described Arthur Conan Doyle's original Sherlock. There's hardly an adaptation of the novels that doesn't include his eccentric personality with all its foibles.

Good news but I had an feeling that an anime has been confirmed at some point. I guess it's long overdue.

This sounds really interesting from what you've described, Jinbei.
