The December issue of Shueisha's Jump SQ. magazine revealed on Friday that the previously teased "project" for Ryōsuke Takeuchi and Hikaru Miyoshi's Yūkoku no Moriarty (Moriarty the Patriot) manga is a character popularity poll to commemorate the manga reaching 1 million copies in print. Voting for the poll will end on December 4, and the magazine's April 2019 issue on March 4 will reveal the results.
The manga debuted in August 2016. Takeuchi draws the storyboards and Miyoshi provides the art. The sixth volume shipped on July 4 and the seventh volume will ship on November 7. A novel will also ship on November 7.
The story's protagonist is James Moriarty, the famous antagonist from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes series. In the manga, he is an orphan who assumes the name William James Moriarty when he and his younger brother are adopted into the Moriarty family. As a young man, he seeks to remove the ills caused by England's strict class system.
