It’s time to play the music and light the lights, because takt op.Destiny, an epic co-production between studios MAPPA and MADHOUSE, is right around the corner!
A new promo video was just released ahead of the anime’s premiere on October 5 in Japan, giving us another taste of the epic musical battles to come.
The video also features the voices of Kōki Uchiyama (Horimiya) as Takt Asahina, Shion Wakayama (SSSS.DYNAZENON) as Destiny, and more, along with a preview of “Takt,” the opening theme written and composed by ryo (supercell) (Guilty Crown) and performed by Mafumafu (Hortensia SAGA) and gaku.
Yuuki Itoh (Granblue Fantasy: The Animation) is serving as director, with Kiyoko Yoshimura (Riddle Story of Devil) on series composition, Yoshihiro Ike (Kuroko’s Basketball) as the music composer, and Reiko Nagasawa (Overlord III monster/sub-character design) as character designer with original designs by LAM.
takt op.Destiny is part of a previously announced mixed-media project produced by Bandai Namco Arts and DeNA, which also includes an RPG mobile game slated for a 2021 release.
Ouji Hiroi (Sakura Wars) is listed as the original creator, with conductor Hirofumi Kurita for musical research and composer Marasy as the key pianist.
