Takt Op. Destiny Synopsis
The United States of America has been in chaos since the appearance of the D2, an invasive species from a black meteorite that fell on Earth. A public decree prohibited citizens from playing any melody, to avoid further casualties caused by the D2’s hatred of music; even now, in 2047, this ban is still in effect. The only form of defense of humanity against the D2 are the Musicarts, young women who perform pieces of classical music, and the conductors, who control them. Takt Asahina, a distant piano prodigy, is transformed into an Orchestra Conductor after a spontaneous attack by the D2s.
The same incident kills Anna Schneider’s younger sister, Cosette, and puts Takt in contact with her Musicart, Destiny. Looking for a means to stabilize the pact between them, Takt and Destiny – along with Anna – undertake a dangerous trip to the headquarters of the Symphony in New York. Takt is in a hurry to get to town so he can play the piano again, though his passion attracts creatures he has come to despise. Meanwhile, Destiny’s sense of duty drags the group into trouble along the way. With a D2-infested road and many more arduous obstacles ahead, will the trio make it to New York in one piece?
