The United States of America has been in chaos ever since the emergence of D2s, an invasive species originating from a black meteorite that fell to Earth. A public decree banned citizens from playing any melodies, to prevent further casualties caused by the D2s' hatred for music—even now, in 2047, this prohibition is still in effect. Humanity's only form of defense against the D2s are Musicarts, young women representing pieces of classical music; and Conductors, the ones controlling them.

Takt Asahina, an aloof piano prodigy, finds himself transformed into a Conductor following a spontaneous D2 attack. The same incident kills Anna Schneider's younger sister, Cosette, and brings Takt into contact with his Musicart, Destiny. Searching for a means of stabilizing the pact between themselves, Takt and Destiny—alongside Anna—embark on a perilous journey to the Symphonica Headquarters in New York City.

Takt is in a hurry to reach the city so that he can play the piano again, even though his passion attracts the creatures he has come to despise. Meanwhile, Destiny's sense of duty drags the group into trouble along the way. With a D2-infested path and many more arduous obstacles ahead of them, will the trio make it to New York City in one piece?

Takt Op. Destiny is a mixed-media project centered on classical music, created by Bandai Namco Arts and DeNA. Under the same umbrella, a Japanese RPG for smartphones is being developed by Game Studio. The game, titled Takt Op. Unmei wa Akaki Senritsu no Machi o, was made available for pre-registration in March 2021 and is expected to be released by the end of the same calendar year.

Takt opt Destiny is a derivative greedy waifu bait that emerges from an intent of making a mixed-media project for a gacha game, how fitting by its nature. By using the collaboration of two extremely hyped studios that have an enormous catalogue of quality animation, be it MAPPA, and be it Madhouse, almost like the old school collaborating with the new school, like the Conrad Tokyo of the industry, the anime invited us to watch a visually appealing anime, but while it does so in one way or another because the animation is pleasing to look at, the whole anime sucks nevertheless, being one of read more

I have seen a lot of hate for this anime in most of social media platform that I use,usually it goes like “waifu bait” or “fanservice anime” or “the detective is already dead 2.0” and more but let just be realistic here,from any point of way you saw it,you know it’s not even that bad to get so much hate.
Let’s take a look of a few aspect.

The story : Well I can’t say that it’s not really the most ‘’original’’,but back to me,originality doesn’t really matter to me,as long as it good at what it’s trying to be and this anime done quite good,it has read more

At first I must say that I want to examine this work logically. I don't know about the next episodes and I will write my views only up to ep4.
I follow this anime myself, but until episode 4, the story and characterization did not seem to reach a satisfactory level. Before examine the other strengths and weaknesses of the anime, I must say that this anime is at a very high level in terms of graphics, and if you are just looking for an anime with attractive graphic fights, see this work without reading other views.
But if storytelling and characterization are important to you, I read more

My Opinion
Well, I was expecting a huge deal out of Takt Op. Destiny. And It gave me just what I was looking for. The anime was fairly good enough according to me. It had some pretty new things to it too.

Story 8
Well, the story is quite cliche I won't argue on it. But, the way this anime presents the story is kind of fun and amazing. Some points in the story were also quite new. So I think 8 is best suited for this anime in terms of story.

Art 10
Mappa and Madhouse did a great job in the art for the read more
