The first episode of the OVA, titled “Yuri no Tsuioku” (Recollection of Lily) will be an anime-original episode following the story of a popular aristocratic painter Baron George Cubid (voiced by Kenji Hamada) whose masterpiece is defaced in Bath, England. The second episode will be an adaptation of the manga chapter “Moriarty-ke no Kyūjitsu” (Moriarty Family Holiday). The episode will center around a tea party thrown by the Moriarty family as part of a mission.

Ryōsuke Takeuchi and Hikaru Miyoshi’s Moriarty the Patriot (Yūkoku no Moriarty) manga is a subversive retelling of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s legendary series Sherlock Holmes. The series adopts the point of view of Moriarty (voiced by Souma Saito), the iconic antagonist and rival to the famous Sherlock Holmes (voiced by Makoto Furukawa). Now known as William James Moriarty, he embarks on a mission to bring justice to the evils imposed by the strict class system in 19th century England.
