YMMV / Digital Devil Story

  • Adaptation Displacement: These books are virtually unknown outside of Japan, and even then, they're pretty niche. Compare that to Shin Megami Tensei, the franchise (initially) based off said books.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Loki's descriptions liken him to a bronze Greek statue.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The lovingly detailed descriptions of what Loki does to people. And how he eats.
  • What an Idiot!:
    • Nakajima. He summoned a deity-class demon with his program, sure, but he also neglected to include little details like the duration of the summoning, compensation, and conditions...
    • Ohara has this as well. When Loki is defeated, she freaks out, and fiddles with the Demon Summoning Program, something she doesn't understand and can barely operate. She ends up summoning Set.
