Netflix describes the “fantasy opera’s” story:
Rin (Konomi Suzuki), an energetic girl who loves to eat, lives in a verdant frontier village. Deep within the royal palace in the bustling capital city, the songstress Finis (Yukari Tamura) spends her days in solitude. Both share a special power no other person has. A miraculous power that can heal wounds, create water and stir the wind — the power of song. Guided by destiny, the two young women each face an arduous journey with the power of song. The shadow of war looms over the kingdom, tainting even the miraculous songs with the blood of innocents. Loved ones meet their deaths as silent screams echo through a stone prison. As two destinies intersect, will the final song be one of despair, hope or…?

Aki Hata (Ange Vierge, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya theme song lyrics) is in charge of lyrics, and Y?suke Shirato (The Pet Girl of Sakurasou, Ange Vierge theme song composition) is composing the music. 5pb. Records is in charge of music production. Suzuki is performing the opening theme song “Utaeba Soko ni Kimi ga Iru Kara” (If I Sing, You Will Be There).
MAGES., Suzuki’s current agency, announced the project as a television anime in January. The anime’s tagline is, “That song changes even the destiny of the stars.”
