The meteorite gives birth to D2, a monster. The monster begins to take over the world. D2 prohibits music from being played anywhere in the world, knowing the fact that it is the only thing that can kill the him.
However, those who oppose the monster appear. Musicart is a group of girls who have the power of music. They have the greatest opera and musical score (score) that has survived in human history, and they used it to defeat D2. The Conductor is in charge of these girls and guides them.
