Arcanamusica: Mixed-Media Project in which Tarot meets Music

Arcanamusica

Arcanamusic is all about its music, using tarot cards as motifs for all the worldbuilding and characters.

Introduction

Arcanamusica is a mixed-media project launched in 2022 by SHUEISHA, featuring character designs by OGUCHI, and music production by avex entertainment.

This is a multidimensional project that includes music videos, audio, manga movies with audio (Vomics), and social media content that will stretch in the medium and long term.

The project will be based on the theme “music”, including impressionist sounds, and “secrets” in the history and world view, using the arcanes of tarot cards as a motive.

A promotional video is out. Check it out below!

Synopsis

"My song" is here - "Arcana Music".
"Arcana Music" is a music app that has been talked about as a place to "listen to special music".

Programmer Shizuka Kawawa, who spends his days busy with work, notices one day that an unfamiliar app called "Arcana Music" has been downloaded on her smartphone.

Attracted by the phrase "anyone can freely distribute music using the app's features," Shizuka sets his Arcana name as "RiZ" and sings a commemorative song to distribute.

A few days later, Shizuka receives an invitation to the "Destiny Game" from Wonderful Nest, the company that operates Arcana Music.

The singers gathered with Shizuka are awarded "Arcana Points" at the end of the game. It is said that the title of "World," where any wish can come true, awaits those who collect enough points.

With their own desires and wishes in their hearts, the singers aim for the "World".

What lies beyond their "songs" - a mysterious fantasy guided by the tarot cards begins!
