Moriarty the Patriot Manga To Return with Part 2

In a highly anticipated announcement, the August edition of Shueisha’s Jump SQ. Magazine revealed that the second half of the popular manga Moriarty the Patriot (Yūkoku no Moriarty), written by Ryōsuke Takeuchi and illustrated by Hikaru Miyoshi, will begin serialization in the magazine’s January 2025 issue, set to be released on December 4, 2024. This announcement has caused great excitement and anticipation among fans.

The manga’s second part will resume after a two-year hiatus, following the conclusion of the ‘Valley of Fellows’ arc in December 2022. This pivotal arc was named after Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s fourth and final Sherlock Holmes novel, ‘The Valley of Fear,’ and marked a significant turning point in the story.

In August 2016, Takeuchi and Miyoshi collaborated to bring the manga to life in Jump SQ. magazine. Their combined efforts, with Takeuchi’s storyboards and Miyoshi’s artistry, resulted in a captivating and one-of-a-kind storyline. The 19th compiled volume of the manga was published by Shueisha in February 2023. Viz Media has also released an English version of the series, describing it as:
