Mappa x Madhouse new series could be anime of the season

Updated on September 23rd, 2021

Fall 2021 is stacked with some quality anime series. Shows like Mushoku Tensei and Demon Slayer are making a return, and there are some popular manga works like Komi Can’t Communicate and Platinum Ends, which are getting an anime adaptation.

However, there is another anime series, which is recently making waves on social media platforms. Takt op. Destiny is co-produced by Mappa and Madhouse, two of the biggest anime studios. Since the first trailer was released about 2 months ago, it has already surpassed 1 million views. Considering the fact that this is an original work (no manga or light novel) from Mappa x Madhouse, the number of views are quite astonishing.

From the looks of the trailer, animation looks promising. Hopefully, the trailer isn’t pre-animated as previously done by the Mappa studio for Attack on Titan season 4.


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.

Release Date

Takt Op. Destiny is scheduled to be released on October 5, 2021. The anime will be broadcasted on TV Tokyo and Amazon Prime Video in Japan. As far as the international audience is concerned, Crunchyroll will be streaming the series in selected regions.
