Akemi Nakajima is a student in the "gifted class" in his high school. After being bullied and beaten by another student who was invoked by a female student, Nakajima uses his advanced computer skills to create the "Demon Summoning Program."

He summons demons to attack the two, but he gets carried away and ultimately kills the two. Now sick with the power of the demon realm, Makai, in his hands, he summons the demon lord Loki. Realizing summoning such a powerful demon was a mistake, Nakajima sets out to reverse the problem he has created by any means.


The first novel from the trilogy, Digital Devil Story: Megami Tensei, was adapted into an OVA and is the original source material for the first game of the same title developed by Namco (known as Namcot at the time), that later spawned the entire Megami Tensei metaseries.

Review for the 1st Book of this.

Atlus based their Shin Megami Tensei series on this book, at least the first book was an adaptation of sorts. I’ve always been curious what birthed Atlus into being what they are, since I will not play that game because a) no IOS or Android device and b) I’m not going to emulate uber old games.

I’m not sure if Atlus followed everything 100%, I read the fan-translation, available on the blog of the guy, that got transformed into an epub. I found it in epub, loaded my Sony PocketReader, and there I went into the waves of 80‘s story.

Is Digital Devil Saga: Megami Tensei a good book? No. But is it the worst book ever? Well, it's certainly the worst I have ever read. To begin with, there is no real story in this book, things just kind of happen.

The characters are not well written either and they seem to randomly change instead of developing. For example, Nakajima is begins as a character so detestable, treats his mother like trash, forces people into becoming murderers using hypnosis, it's hard to pity him when he is abused in School, but somehow changes into a selfless hero read more
