■ Takuto Asahina – CV: Koki Uchiyama
A conductor who makes a contract with the Destiny “Musicart”. He always thinks that Music should take precedence over everything.
A “Musicart” that holds the score of “Symphony No. 5 in C Minor, Op. 67” by Beethoven
The world changed one night when a black meteorite fell from the sky.
The meteorite brought the grotesque monsters called D2, which started overruling the earth and humans. D2 was attracted to the melody played by humans, and eventually “music” was prohibited.
But there were some people who resisted the D2. They are young women who hold the power of music, the “Musicart.” These young women hold “scores” that are able to defeat the monsters. And those who lead these women are known as the Conductor.
In 2047, America was devastated by the invasion of D2. Takuto, a Conductor, partnered with a “Musicart” called Destiny to bring music back to this world.
