Measure op. Destiny synopsis

In anime history, one day a black meteor fell on the world and changed completely. The meteorite produced grotesque monsters called D2 that began to run uncontrollably. The D2s quickly banned all music, which was the only thing they could defeat. But there were some people who opposed D2. It is young women who have the power of music, the "Musicart". These young women have "scores" capable of defeating monsters. And there are also people who lead these women, the drivers. The anime is set in America in 2047, which has fallen into decay thanks to D2. Takt, a conductor, is associated with a type of music called Unmei. Takt longs for the music to return to the world and Unmei wants to destroy D2. His goal is to travel to New York.
