The anime “Moriarty the Patriot”, based on Ryosuke Takeuchi’s original manga, follows the story of Sherlock Holmes’s archnemesis James Moriarty in his early days.
Throughout the anime, several characters from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original works appear. Charles Augustus Milverton, another famous criminal from the Sherlock Holmes Universe, recently appeared in the anime.
Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes is one of the most compelling characters in detective fiction. No one could stand a chance against Holmes throughout his illustrious career, except for one man- James Moriarty!
The official website of Moriarty the Patriot announced that Kenji Nojima would be the voice actor for Charles Augustus Milverton.
Nojima will join the highly experienced cast, which includes Soma Saito, Takuya Sato and Nao Toyama, among others. The actor had previously worked in popular shows like One Piece and 7 Seeds and will be a great addition to the team.
The website describes Nojima’s character- Charles Augustus Milverton as a media mogul who is very good at gathering information and using it against other people to get his work done. This is very similar to the original character created by Conan Doyle.
In the original short story “The Adventures of Charles Augustus Milverton”, published in 1904, Milverton is depicted as a professional blackmailer who mercilessly tries to destroy Lady Eva Blackwell’s public image.
The first season of the anime premiered in October 2020, and so far, 16 episodes have been released.
Episode 17 of Moriarty the Patriot will air on May 9 in Japan.
Episode 16 revealed Sherlock Holmes deducing Jack the Ripper to be Moriarty. And at the end, the audience was able to catch a glimpse of Charles Augustus Milverton!
How will Milverton’s role impact both Sherlock and Moriarty? Does he have a master plan to destroy law and order in the country? We will find out on May 9!
