Moriarty the Patriot Is licensed by Funimation. The original manga is licensed by Viz who describe it as follows:

Before he was Sherlock's rival, Moriarty fought against the unfair class caste system in London by making sure corrupt nobility got their comeuppance. But even the most well-intentioned plans can spin out of control—will Moriarty's dream of a more just and equal world turn him into a hero… or a monster?
