Is Demon Summoning Program to exact his own revenge What follows are the conseuences of playing with demon I personally recommend audiences to watch the incredible anime OVA adaption first and then read the book afterwards I feel like one can appreciate the creepiness of the story when they can fully visualize everything that's going on particularly the gore scenes Digital Devil Story is a beautiful piece of camp and I will hold it close to my heart for years The second volume of the series is even better For anyone interested in Shin Megami Tensei or trope y fun 80's Japanese horror the books that inspired the franchise are jewelsIt's such a bummer how difficult it is to find the seuel series beyond the original trilogy

デジタル・デビル・ストーリー 女神転生Jusho High School's student body is divided the gifted versus the normal Akemi Nakajima one of the gifted As much as I like the MegaTen series I must confess the novel that started it all ends up rather Lackluster Pacing is poor characters lack substance and the writing is awkward and downright cheesy at times If you can stomach these obvious shortcomings though it makes for an interesting insight on how the MegaTen series came to be definitely only recommended for veteranshardcore fans
