Takt Op (Japanese: タクトオーパス, Hepburn: Takuto Ōpasu, stylized as takt op. or {tákt: op.})[a] is a mixed-media project about classical music produced by Bandai Namco Arts and DeNA. An anime television series by MAPPA and Madhouse titled Takt Op. Destiny aired from October to December 2021. A mobile game developed by Game Studio titled Takt Op. Symphony was released in June 2023.


Takt Op is set in the year 2047, a future world where music cannot be played freely because it attracts monsters called "D2s".[b] These monsters were produced by a black meteorite containing Black Night Siderites which fell from the sky years ago. They hate the music produced by humans and are drawn to the music source and attempt to destroy it, as it is the only thing that can hurt and kill them. To combat the D2s, the Symphonica International Organization and the Musicarts combine their powers to defend the cities from D2s.

Together, Takt and Destiny destroy a large number of D2s, then Destiny collapses. More D2s arrive, but the Conductor Lenny arrives on his motorcycle with the Musicart Titan and they defeat them. Later, Destiny awakens but has no recollection of her former life as Cosette. Lenny explains that without undergoing the normal Musicart process Destiny is in an unstable condition. To rectify this, Anna proposes taking Takt and Destiny to the Symphonica based in New York for treatment, and where her older sister Lotte is studying. However, they must avoid the central states, which are a dead zone filled with D2 poison. Suddenly, more D2s appear and Destiny immediately attacks them, weakening Takt, which causes Lenny to suspect that Destiny's uncontrolled use of power could be depleting Takt's life force. Titan and Destiny eliminate the D2s, but Destiny destroys Takt's house in the process. Following the battle, Anna, Takt and Destiny drive off for New York via Las Vegas, accompanied by Lenny and Titan.

Lenny is already there with Lang, whose armed men try to apprehend Destiny. Suddenly D2s burst in from below ground.

He invites Anna's group to travel with them, though Takt is mistrustful of Schindler’s motives. Attracted by the Black Night Siderites, the train is attacked by a horde of flying D2s, so Destiny and Valkyrie rush out to repel them. With Takt's help in directing Destiny's blasts, they manage to destroy them. Takt becomes uncharacteristically friendly with Valkyrie, which smittens her. However, when another huge D2 appears, both Destiny and Valkyrie have depleted their energy. As such, Schindler sends out Jigoku, who had been inactive, to destroy it.

Anna and Destiny buy supplies in a small store, helping the owner dispatch groceries, and fixing the floor of the lady who bought them. One elderly woman invites Anna and Destiny into her home, believing Anna is her daughter María. Her husband explains to Anna that María passed away a long time ago, but continues to live constantly on her mind. Alone, Takt finds a bar where they play music, including that of his late father Kenji. When Takt reveals he is Kenji’s son, the owner takes him to a soundproofed basement venue where he plays "Rhapsody in Blue" on the piano to an appreciative audience of the bar's patrons. One patron reveals he had the chance to play with Kenji when he came to New Orleans, and is pleased to know that the Asahina music lineage is in good hands. Anna and Destiny find him, and comment on Takt’s inmense passion on the way he plays. The trio continue on their way to New York, as Conductor Sagan learns through Schindler that Takt, the son of the "Rooster", is alive, and now a Conductor.

Takt and company arrive in one of a number of cities in the southern states being evacuated after heavy D2 activity. Under questioning from Anna, Takt confesses that he has been composing his own music on his mind. Anna provides him with a melodica, which he uses to help him write his composition on some music sheets. While on a walk, Takt sees Destiny providing assistance and bonding with the town’s refugees, stunning him. Anna explains to him that their experiences on their journey have made Destiny more human, as have the people they have met. She also tells him it was Destiny who sourced the melodica for him, as she wants to support his love for music. In a diner, Destiny reveals to Takt she now knows she is inhabiting Cosette’s body, and asks him what Cosette meant for him and Anna. Meanwhile in New York, Sagan forbids Schindler from interfering with Takt, angering him. Back in the south, Takt and Destiny defeat a D2 in the outskirts of the city. They investigate a nearby forest and encounter Schindler and Jigoku, who demonstrates her power to attract and awaken D2s using a tuning fork, which plays a note the D2’s are attracted to. Schindler reveals that he has been using her power to clear out the poorest settlements in the country, which he sees as a drain on the limited resources. He proclaims himself a hero, as he believes he is giving rise to a nation in which only the gifted will survive. Schindler then admits he first used Jigoku’s power on Takt's town, in the attack in which Cosette was killed. Takt, enraged, swears to kill him.

Takt, Destiny and Anna arrive in the heavily populated New York City. As the city is the Symphonica’s headquarters, it has been spared from the influence of D2’s, even though it is still unsafe to play music. They reunite with the rest of Anna's family and Anna's older sister, Charlotte, examines Takt and Destiny at the Symphonica headquarters. She concludes that their symbiotic condition is irreversible, and that using their powers are draining both of their life forces simultaneously. The only option possible for them to live longer lives, would be to stand aside from fighting, and watch from afar. Charlotte and Anna take Takt and Destiny for a stroll around the city, eventually leaving the pair alone so they can enjoy some time together. On their way back home, Destiny hears the sound of Jigoku's tuning fork coming from underground, which she and Takt suspect is being used to attract D2's. Once at home, Takt is contacted by Lenny, who instructs him to evacuate New York with Destiny and the others.

During the fight, Lenny tells Takt that he was Kenji's apprentice and friend, and that he was there when Kenji was killed during the Boston incident. Lenny was later recruited by Sagan, who saw he met the necessary physical standards to become a Conductor. He partnered with Titan to fight for the Symphonica, but they left the organization after they became suspicious of Sagan's motives, uncovering the truth after they interrogated Schindler. As they battle, Destiny loses her powers when Takt collapses from exhaustion. Tengoku points her weapon at the vulnerable Takt, but Lenny shields him with his body. Mortally wounded, Lenny unleashes the full power of Titan, who severely injures Tengoku and forces Sagan to retreat. Lenny confesses to Takt that he had wanted to apologize to him in the past for having been unable to save Kenji, and became a Conductor to rectify his mistake.

Following their fight with Sagan and his Musicarts, Charlotte proposes to hold Takt and Destiny in a cryogenic state while she tries to find a cure for their condition. Meanwhile, Sagan impales his hand on a Black Night Siderite crystal in the middle of the Symphonica building, causing huge crystals containing pods of D2s to erupt throughout New York. Musicarts from all over attempt to stop the D2’s, resulting in a city-wide chaos. Emboldened by the cause, yet still heartbroken about Lenny’s death, Titan leads Takt and Destiny into the Symphonica to rescue the two Schneider sisters and stop Sagan. They are confronted by a huge number of D2s, and although they destroy them, Takt becomes even weaker. Valkyrie appears and defends Anna and Charlotte from D2s, and the two groups are reunited. Takt orders Titan to take Valkyrie, Anna and Charlotte to safety, having resolved with Destiny that they will continue to fight to restore music, being fully aware of their predicament. Worried for their safety, Anna impulsively kisses Takt, before he and Destiny head off to search for Sagan. The pair are soon confronted by Jigoku holding the wounded Tengoku. Jigoku shoots a sound ray from her tuning fork into them, dissolving them and causing them to reemerge as the single Musicart, Orpheus.

Destiny inflicts severe damage on Orpheus and remains to complete the task while Takt presses forward to find Sagan. A flashback shows the battles and sacrifices Sagan made during the war against the D2s. Takt finds Sagan impaled in a Siderite crystal deep within the facility. He tells Takt that he intends to seal off all the D2s with himself to save the world, but destroying the continent in the process, proclaiming it as a “symphony of joy and despair”. Takt rejects Sagan’s plan, as its extreme nature forgoes what music should truly be: a source of hope and happiness for the people. Meanwhile, Destiny manages to defeat Orpheus and joins Takt’s side. Sagan realizes his mistake and accepts his fate, praising Takt’s passion. Takt kills Sagan with Destiny’s weapon, destroying him along the Black Night Siderite crystals and stopping the D2s in New York. Exhausted, Destiny and Takt lay together, as Takt hums the melody he had been composing, as Destiny listens, happy. As Takt dies, Destiny declares her love for him before sacrificing herself, reviving him. She reduces her essence to a pendant, which lays in his now restored arm. He is found unconscious by Lotte, who takes him to recuperate, finding no trace of Destiny, other than the small pendant on Takt’s hand. Some time later, Christmas approaches and Anna has joined the Symphonica, which is being rebuilt along with the city while Takt recovers. D2 attacks persist in certain areas, as Musicarts continue to fend them off. Anna now wears Destiny’s pendant, giving her the ability to transform into a Musicart herself and support Takt, carrying on Cosette and Destiny's wish of a world where he can create and play music.
