Digital Devil Story: Megami Tensei is a novel written by Aya Nishitani and the first novel in the Digital Devil Story: Megami Tensei trilogy. It was published by Tokuma Shoten on March 31, 1986. The novel follows highschoolers Akemi Nakajima and Yumiko Shirasagi as they combat the demon Loki, whom Akemi had summoned with his Demon Summoning Program.

A year following its publication, the novel was adapted into an OVA and was subsequently followed by video games loosely based on its plot, most notably the role-playing game developed by Atlus and published by Namcot for the Famicom. Atlus's video game would eventually expand into a larger series of video games, forming what would become the Megami Tensei franchise.


The book takes place in a famous and prestigious privately owned high school in suburban Tokyo called Jusho High. The school is highly segregated between the "normal" class of students and "gifted" students, with the main characters being in the latter category. The novel begins with Nakajima being accosted and harshly beaten by Kondo Hiroyuki, a popular student, for kissing Takamizawa Kyoko. In reality Kyoko came on to him and he rejected her. Kyoko's manipulation awakens a desire for revenge in Nakajima. Nakajima's friend Takai Ken'ichi can only watch on in fear. When Nakajima regains the ability to move after some hours, he tells Takai what really happened and asks him about demons
