Will the Takt op Destiny Season 2 anime TV series continue the story of Musicart Destiny/Cosette Schneider and Conductor Takt Asahina now that Anna has joined New York Symphonica as a Conductor? It’s a real question of whether a Takt Op Destiny sequel will be renewed, but if it is, when will Takt op Season 2 come out?
The TV series is part of the overall Takt op franchise, which includes anime and mobile games such as Takt Op. Destiny in the City of Crimson Melody. As such, the title of the Takt op 2 anime sequel might have a different title denoting the change in story focus.
On December 21, 2021, a special called Takt op Intermezzo was released on the official website. It serves as a written epilogue to the events of Episode 12.
It’s possible that a game or anime-related announcement could take place at a Takt op Destiny Orchestra concert. The event is taking place at 2 PM JST (1 AM EST) on Sunday, June 19, 2022.
The anime’s first season was produced as part of a collaboration between anime Studios MAPPA and Madhouse. While it’s unusual to have two anime powerhouses working together, MAPPA founder Masao Maruyama was a former producer of Madhouse.
Madhouse is best known in recent years for No Game No Life, Overlord, One Punch Man, No Guns Life, and The Irregular at Magic High School (the 2020 Mahouka Season 2 anime and 2022 The Irregular at Magic High School Season 3 anime were produced solely by Studio 8bit).
In 2021, MAPPA was also working on Netflix’s Yasuke anime, the water polo anime Re-Main, The Idaten Deities Know Only Peace anime, the Sonny Boy original anime, and The Vampire Dies in No Time anime. The Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie release date was in late 2021, while the Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 2 release date was in early 2022.
In the future, they’re releasing notables such as the Overlord Season 4 anime, the Chainsaw Man anime, the Jigokaraku: Hell’s Paradise anime, the Yuri!!! on Ice movie: Ice Adolescence, and the Zombieland Saga movie.
The studio and main staff making the Takt op. Destiny Season 2 anime hasn’t been announced yet.
For the first season, the Takt op. Destiny anime project was helmed by director Yuuki Itou (Granblue Fantasy Season 1). Writer Kiyoko Yoshimura (Garo: Vanishing Line, The God of High School) wrote the scripts, although DeNA/Ouji Hiroi (Sakura Taisen) is listed as the original creator.
LAM created the character designs, and chief animation director Reko Nagasawa (Overlord Season 3) adapted the designs for animation. Composer Yoshihiro Ike (B: The Beginning, Noblesse, Tiger & Bunny) created the music.
The Takt op. Destiny Season 2 OP (opening) and ED (ending) theme song music hasn’t been announced yet.
For the first season, the Takt op Destiny OP “takt” was performed by Supercell’s Ryo and featured vocals from Mafumafu and gaku. The ED “Symphonia” was performed by Mika Nakashima.
The total number of episodes is 12 for the first season. Assuming no delays, the Takt op Destiny Episode 12 release date will be on December 22, 2021.

Takt op Destiny English dub release date
The anime premiered in Fall 2021 and was streaming with English subtitles on Crunchyroll and VRV (not FUNimation, Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime Video). Crunchyroll’s Takt op Destiny English dub release date hasn’t been announced yet.
Takt op. game delayed until 2022? Smartphone game continues the story on Android/iPhone mobile
The overall Takt op. franchise is a mixed-media project developed by Banda Namco Arts and DeNA. While MAPPA x Madhouse handled the anime, the Takt Op. Destiny in the City of Crimson Melody (Takt Op. Unmei wa Akaki Senritsu no Machi o) mobile game was originally being developed by Mobile & Game Studio.
On December 21, 2021, it was announced that the development company would be changed to DeNA China in order to “further improve the quality of the game”.
The Takt op game is currently available for download and pre-registration on Android and iPhone smartphone devices. The game is a “classical music-themed x bishojo RPG” featuring various Musicart girls battling.
The exact Takt op game release date hasn’t been announced yet. The official website originally stated that it would be available for download in 2021, but in November 2021 it was announced that the Tak top game would be delayed.
“The game Takt Op. Destiny in the City of Crimson Melody has been in development for a long time. However, in order to provide you with a more enjoyable service, we have decided to postpone the release date in order to further improve the quality of the game,” stated the official website on November 12, 2021. “For those of you who have been waiting for the release of the game, we would appreciate it if you could wait a little longer. We will do our best to deliver the game in a way that will satisfy everyone.”
On December 21, 2021, the official website announced that they have begun “pre-registration”, which consisted of asking people to follow the Takt Op game Twitter account. Those who retweeted the game campaign tweets were entered into a prize contest.
The game staff promises that they will announce a new release window for the game in the future.
Takt op. Destiny Season 2 release date predictions
As of the last update, Banda Namco Arts, Madhouse, MAPPA or any company related to the production of the anime has not officially confirmed the Takt op Season 2 release date. Nor has the production of a Takt op. sequel been announced.
Once the news is officially confirmed, this article will be updated with the relevant information.
In the meantime, it’s possible to speculate about when, or if, the Takt op. Destiny Season 2 release date will occur in the future.
The chances of a Takt op. Destiny sequel largely depends on the underlying video game series. If both the anime and the overall franchise are popular, it’s likely that they’ll want to expand the story with another animated outing, especially if there is a major update for the game.
For example, the Megaton Musashi Season 2 release date was confirmed for 2022. In that case, the anime sequel’s story is designed to coincide with a major game update.
Thus, it’s possible the ending of Takt op. Destiny Episode 12 left an opening for a sequel that could coincide with the plan for the game. The primary conflict in the first season’s story resulted in Destiny learning to be her own person. Arguably, Cosette’s story arc was resolved in the self-contained first season, so there are other Musicart girls who could become the focus of a second season, never mind the ultimate destruction of the D2.
We know the main theme will definitely change. Due to the fight with Sagan and the Heaven-and-Hell fusion Orpheus, Takt Asahina is literally on ice and Anna has stepped up to make his dream a reality. Plus, the anime didn’t really explain how or why Anna is literally morphing into Destiny.
The transformation in the final scene definitely represents more than Destiny living on in the newly minted Conductor. In fact, even before the finale aired it was noticeable that the game version of Destiny looked different and was voiced by the Anna voice actor. And now we know why.
In any case, it seems like the story events of the game would need to set up the anime sequel.
The secondary issue is whether or not the same animation studios would be involved. Takt op. Destiny is the first time that MAPPA x Madhouse collaborated since MAPPA was founded in 2011.
It’s possible that Takt op. Season 2 could be handled by a different studio. After all, MAPPA apparently outsourced a lot of their work on the much-ballyhooed Episode 2 to Studio VOLN.
Speaking of which, Studio MAPPA took a lot of flack for the animation of Episode 2, with some comparing the relative quality to the works of Studio Silver Link. Whether or not that the critics are right remains to be seen based on watching the remainder of the first season, but it may be possible that anime fans would prefer a Madhouse solo outing for the second season.
Regardless, anime studio schedules are typically booked out years in advance. The same is true for the main staff, although they’re contractors and they’re not tied to a single studio. Still, coordinating the return of the same main staff and both studios would be quite the feat.
Therefore, if the Takt op. Destiny Season 2 anime is produced by MAPPA x Madhouse then anime fans should expect a multi-year wait. If it’s just Madhouse or another studio, the turnaround time could be much quicker.
Anime fans will just have to wait and see if the Takt op Season 2 anime is possible based on the first season’s ending. Stay tuned!
