Takt op Destiny season 2 …
At the time of writing, Takt op Destiny has not been renewed for Season 2 by MAPPA or Madhouse.
Unfortunately, the renewal of Takt op Destiny may not be as straightforward as many other anime titles. This is because the series is not based on a manga or a series of light novels like many other titles, but rather is part of a multimedia franchise that includes a video game.
The animated series was widely praised by fans and critics alike, scoring an impressive 7.7 / 10 on IMDB and 7.66 / 10 on MyAnimeList with over 58,000 reviews. While those scores would leave us optimistic about a potential second season, the franchise will generate most of its revenue from mobile video games.
The Takt op Destiny video game was slated for release in 2021, but has been delayed indefinitely in November because “staff need more time to create a better game that fans will enjoy.”
In all likelihood, the decision to renew the Takt op Destiny animated series will be heavily influenced by the success of the video game, when it is finally released.
If the anime is renewed for season 2, when could it be released on Crunchyroll?
When could Takt op Destiny season 2 be released?
Predicting a potential release window for Takt op Destiny season 2 remains difficult as there is very little information on the production schedule for the first season available online.
A major issue is with the production itself, with Takt op Destiny being a co-production between studio MAPPA and Madhouse.
Co-productions are rare in the modern anime industry, but the resources added to the series thanks to having two different studios on board will surely speed up the potential wait for Season 2.
The problem is, these two studios already have an incredibly busy 2022 year. Madhouse works on ‘Police in a Pod’ and ‘Goodbye Don Glees’, while MAPPA has bands like Attack on Titan, Dance Dance Danseur, Chainsaw Man, Kakegurui Twin and Hell’s Paradise on the production line.
If Takt op Destiny is renewed for Season 2, it will likely be put on the back burner at both studios until work on the aforementioned titles is complete. This would delay the release of a second season in 2023 or even 2024.
The good news is that production could easily be moved to one of these studios, or moved to a completely different company. Episode 2 of the series was actually handed over to Studio VOLN, a company known for making the classic movie “I Want To Eat Your Pancreas” – and which doesn’t have a title slated for 2022.
If Studio VOLN were to succeed MAPPA and Madhouse, with the eventual release of the video game, fans could see Takt op Destiny return for Season 2 in fall 2022.
