What do we know about Season 2 of {tákt: op.} Destiny?

On March 26, 2021, Bandai Namco Arts and DeNA announced the {tákt: op.} project including a mobile game named {tákt: op.} Unmei wa Akaki Senritsu no Machi o. The game was being developed by Game Studio for a release scheduled for 2021 but was eventually pushed back to 2023. The character designs were done by artist LAM while Yish was responsible for the concept art of the sets.

Hirofumi Kurita, a conductor, advised on musical research and Marasy worked on the project as the chief pianist. The project’s planned anime, titled {tákt: op.} Destiny, was announced on June 26, 2021. The series was animated by MAPPA Studios and Madhouse and directed by Yūki Itō, with Kiyoko Yoshimura serving as the screenwriter. LAM was tasked with designing the characters, Reiko Nagasawa adapted them for the anime, and Yoshihiro Ike composed the music for the series.


The series aired between October 6, 2021, and December 22, 2021, on TV Tokyo, BS TV Tokyo, and the Medialink platform in Japan. In Europe and the Americas, the series was broadcast on Crunchyroll in a simulcast. Supercell’s Ryo, Mafumafu, and Gaku performed the opening credits titled “take”, while Mika Nakashima performed the ending credits titled “Symphonia”. What does this tell us? Not much, really. The series was fairly popular, but this information – and that is all we have – doesn’t tell us much about the future of the show, which is a bummer.

As you can see, the future of the {tákt: op.} Destiny anime is quite uncertain, but not because there’s no interest. The series was fairly popular and we’ll just have to see whether there is enough interest for a continuation to make any proper predictions about the potential continuation of the series. The first season received solid reviews, but we simply don’t know enough to make any predictions about the show’s future.


Takt Op Destiny Fans Are Freaking Out Over Anna Kissing Takt

In any case, the earliest we could see a potential second season is late 2023, but we’d have to get some confirmation on the future during 2022 or easily 2023; 2024 is an even stronger possibility. The fans are demanding a new season, but we’ll just have to see how it goes; as far as things stand now, a cancelation has not been confirmed, but we cannot rule it out either.

What could be the plot of {tákt: op.} Destiny Season 2?

At this moment, we have absolutely no idea about the content of a potential second season o {tákt: op.} Destiny. Why? Well, as we’ve said, {tákt: op.} Destiny is an original anime series and is, thus, not based on any pre-published material. This means that the only source of the story is the anime series, so we don’t have anything to work with. This is why we can only bring you a recap of the first season to, roughly, prepare you for what you could expect from a potential second season.

The story takes place in the year 2047 in a world where music cannot be practiced freely, as it attracts monsters called “D2”. These monsters emerged on Earth from a meteorite crash years ago. They are attracted to music they hate and intend to destroy all musical sources. To fight the D2, girls named “Musicarts” drawing their power from music appeared and are led by humans called “Conductors”.

What could be the cast of {tákt: op.} Destiny Season 2?

It’s still too early for us to discuss a potential second season of {tákt: op.} Destiny in terms of cast and characters, simply because we do not know whether there will even be a second season. But, seeing how we know that the series is going to have a more-or-less fixed cast, we really don’t expect to see too many changes in the structure of season two, if it ever happens. Now, the main characters that have appeared in season one, likely to return for a second season, include:
