Story: A girl named Yumiko transfers to Juusei Academy and finds very accepting people except for one guy, Nakajima, who treats here like dirt and seems to have a large amount of power, given the students and even teachers scrape and bow to him. Later that night, Yumiko spies on Nakajima and finds, to her horror, Nakajima is trying to summon a demon by the name of Loki through his computer. Eventually Loki is able to be fully summoned out of the computer and turns on Nakajima, almost killing him and Yumiko. Through a brief series of events, Yumiko and Nakajima break free and eventually read more

Basically, I enjoyed this anime because it fleshed out the background of the megaten series a bit. It is more directly based on the DDM book than the Famicom game that followed it, leading eventually to the "two men in black" splitting off from NAMCO to form Atlus.

However, in general, it is fairly pathetic, even by old-fashioned standards.

Taken as a compliment to the light novel, though, it works fairly well, so overall, I rated it as "good", or 7/10... however, for most people, I would recommend watching something else... leave this for diehard megatenist, or fans of the DDM light novel (which is still read more

A wacky tale about a young boy and how he makes the worst decisions possible in every given situation and throws the biggest shit-fit in history.

In all seriousness though, the OVA is alright. It has good art and everything looks very nice. However, the story is greatly streamlined and cut down from the Game/Novel.

I got most of the enjoyment of the package from it's un-intentional hilarity. The 80's animation makes some of the scenes look very comical in combination with the rushed story. It looks and sounds like a 8th grade reproduction of Megami Tensei, and it takes a lot less time in read more

I like old school anime a lot. Since I hadn't seen this one I decided to watch it.

The RPG was great fun, so I wanted to check out the OVA. I shouldn't have done that >_<

It's one VERY cheesy OVA even if you consider how old it is.
Still it's entertaining in a quaint and WTF kinda way. Has loads of action and hack and slash, BUT the story is filled with so many inconsistencies that it's both confusing and annoying.

The plot is pretty bad, and the horror effects are medicore.

Sad sad adaptation. If you want to get some cheap laughs, or your really bored, go read more
