Studio Mappa and Studio Madhouse are banding together to make a new anime titled “Takt Op. Destiny”.
The anime series is not actually based on a manga or a light novel. Takt Op. Destiny is based on a mobile game developed by Game Studio, which is called Takt Op. Unmei wa Akaki Senritsu no Machi o.
One day, a black meteorite fell upon the world, and the world totally changed. The meteorite produced grotesque monsters called D2, and they started spreading. D2 very quickly banned all music, which was the only thing able to overcome them. However, some people resisted D2. These are young women that have the power of music, the “Musicart.” These young women possess “scores” that can defeat monsters. And there are also people who lead these women, the Conductor.
The anime is set in the United States in the year 2047, which fell into ruin thanks to the D2. Takt, a Conductor, is partnered with a Musicart named Unmei. Takt yearns for music to be returned to the world, and Unmei wishes to destroy the D2. Their objective is to go to New York.
