Fans watching the currently airing Fall anime Takt Op. Destiny were ecstatic to hear the emotional music of mega hit Jpop group supercell.

The group, led by musician and songwriter ryo, sings the opening theme takt by ryo (supercell) ft. Mafumafu, gaku.

The song describes the journey and emotions of titular protagonist Takt Asahina, the Conductor who commands Musicart, Destiny.

Aside from Takt Op. Destiny, anime fans recognize supercell for singing many other viral theme songs such as Utakata Hanabi (14th ending theme for Naruto: Shippuden), Light My Fire (first opening theme for Shakugan no Shana Final, sung by Kotoko), The Bravery (second ending theme for Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic), and Heart Realize (first ending theme for Noragami).

About supercell

Supercell is an 11-member Japanese pop band led by musician and songwriter ryo. The band was formed in 2007 as a dōjin (i.e., indie) music band. The other 10 members are artists and designers who co-sing the songs or provide illustrations in album booklets and music videos.

Supercell started out by using the personified Hatsune Miku Vocaloid singing synthesizer to produce vocals for songs submitted to the Niconico video sharing website. The popularity of the songs led the band to release their independent self-titled album Supercell (2008). Supercell later signed to Sony Music Entertainment Japan and had a professional release of their Supercell album in March 2009, which was remastered and updated with more songs.
