Takt Op. Destiny takes place in America in the year 2047, and the world as we know it has completely changed because of the arrival of monsters called D2. D2 monsters wreak havoc across the globe and quickly ban music since it’s the only thing that can defeat them.
Luckily for humanity, some young women hold the power of music and Conductors, the people who lead them. When they work together, their “scores” can defeat these monsters.
An anime TV series adaptation by Mappa & Madhouse premiered in October 2021.
Here are 7 anime like Takt Op. Destiny!
7. Violet Evergarden
I am not sure where the Takt Op. Destiny will take us when it comes to character development but Violet Evergarden seems very similar to Destiny—they both have a robotic demeanor and don’t show any emotions. If you are into that kind of waifu, Violet Evergarden is the right series for you even though it’s a completely different story.
Gleipnir revolves around Shuichi Kagaya, an ordinary high schooler who lives in a boring little town.
One day, he finds his beautiful classmate in distress and somehow ends up transforming into a furry dog with an oversized revolver and a zipper down his back. He manages to save her but now the girl not only knows his secret but also wants to use him as a tool in the search for her missing sister.
Takt Op. Destiny and Gleipnir both follow a couple that fights together since their supernatural powers require two people.
5. Macross Frontier
Similar to Takt Op. Destiny, Macross Frontier also uses the power of songs/music while fighting weird creatures.
Taking place in 2059 A.D., Macross Frontier chronicles the events of the 25th Frontier fleet, located near the center of the Galaxy. The Frontier comes under attack by a mysterious and deadly force of aliens known as the Vajra. Alto Saotome, a young piloting student bored with his life in the colony, joins a special force of Valkyrie pilots formed in order to combat the Vajra.
4. Darling in the FranXX
In a future world where humanity has been driven to endangerment by giant beasts, a strike force is assembled to destroy the monsters and save the world.
You need to admit that Zero 002 (the girl above) has strikingly similar eyes to Destiny. Heck, she even applied red eyeshadows!
Both of these shows revolve around partners fighting alien-like monsters with the girl being the weapon and the main focus is on one couple in the series.
3. Guilty Crown
If you want to watch series where the couple fights and the girl is used as a weapon, look no further than Guilty Crown.
In the year 2039, ten years after the outbreak of the Apocalypse Virus Japan nation falls under the control of the CGQ, a military force that is supposed to restore order its own way. Ten years later, an organization named Funeral Parlor is the only one putting up a fight.
Shu is a high schooler who had led a normal life until he met a mysterious girl named Inori who also happened to be a member of the rebellious organization Funeral Parlor and as it seems, she is a key member. In a sudden turn of events, Shu discovers that he has an ability that allows him to use weapons called voids—weapons that can be drawn out from persons as the manifestations of their personalities.
Now it’s up to Shu whether he will help the Funeral Parlor to liberate Japan once more.
2. Vivy: Fluorite Eye’s Song
Vivy: Fluorite Eye’s Song is a story about the first autonomous AI who is catapulted into a century-long journey to avert the violent history yet to come.
Both shows use music as a key element and involve many amazing fight scenes.
Symphogear is a show about the idol duo that protects the world from an alien race using their songs to power ancient weapons known as “symphogears”.
Since they both combat mysterious, alien creatures with the power of music, the similarity to Takt Op. Destiny is obvious.
