The original source material for the ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' series and all of its many derivatives, ''Digital Devil Story'' is a trilogy of novels written by Aya Nishitani. Written in the late 1980s, there are three books in the series: ''Digital Devil Story: Megami Tensei'' (Reincarnation of the Goddess), ''Digital Devil Story 2: Mazu no Senshi'' (Warrior of the Demon City), and ''Digital Devil Story 3: Tensei no Shūen'' (Demise of the Reincarnation). The first novel was adapted into an OVA as well as given a video game sequel (same title as the first book, but with "story" written with the kanji for "monogatari", and "story" in furigana). There was also a sequel series of six novels also by Nishitani, titled ''New Digital Devil Story'', that deals with the aftermath of the original trilogy.

In Jusho High School, the student body is divided into two groups: the gifted class and the normal class. One day Akemi Nakajima, one of the gifted and something of a maverick within the school, has the bad luck of being targeted by the semi-delinquent normal Kondo Hiroyuki. The reason? Nakajima had rejected Kyoko Takamizawa's advances, and in a fit of petty vengeance, she manipulated Kondo's crush on her to deliver Nakajima a vicious beating by proxy.
