The first details are as follows:
A story a little further from now in the middle of the 21st century.
The “Demon Summoner” lives in a dark society and harnesses the supernatural powers of the “Demon”. And “Aion” who watches over the world discovers the looming ruin of the world.
To avoid ruin, Aion’s apples and figs descend into the human world. They head to protect the two needed to avoid destruction, but both have already been killed.
Ringo revives the target by making full use of Aion’s special ability “Soul Hack”. Working with the Devil’s Summoner, Ringo and Figge pursue a mystery that jeopardizes the future of the world.
Can you avoid destruction …?
Apple (Voice of Tomoyo Kurosawa)
Agent of the next generation cyber life form Aion. As a newborn, she has a strong curiosity about her human society and emotions. She is at the forefront of Arrow and other demon summoners, fighting to avoid ruin.
FIG (Voice of Nanako Mori)
Aion’s agent like an apple. Cool and unobtrusive, she’s like Ringo’s sister moving forward at her own pace. Fig also has an interest and admiration for humanity and is very friendly to humans. She specializes in information analysis and is in charge of logistical support.
Arrow (Voice of Kaito Ishikawa)
Devil Summoner Association Hatta Glass’s agent. One of the “targets to protect to avoid the end of the world” detected by Aion. He was killed in the mask, but was revived by Ringo’s soul hack. He is usually a quiet young man and doesn’t speak much. But he is also honest, passionate and morally valued. Because of this, he and Milledi often clash.
Milady (Voice of Ami Koshimizu)
Devil Summoner Society Phantom Society Agent. She was killed by an ally for an unknown reason. After being resurrected by the apple soul hack, she accompanies the apple to pursue the reason behind her death. She is calm and rational. She focuses on rationality and efficiency and can sometimes make ruthless decisions, but her past experience seems to help.
Cyzo (Masaya Matsukaze voice)
Freelance demon summoner. He was killed by an agent of the Phantom Society, but was resurrected by Ringo’s Soul Hack. He accompanies apples and others to pursue a particular purpose. He is romantic, attractive and proud. He is often an intermediary between Arrow and Milledi because he can read the air and act accordingly. He keeps the team running smoothly.
Born from the farthest range of technology, beyond human understanding. It watches over the human world in the shadows. One day, he senses the looming fate of the world and dispatches agents Ringo and Figge to stop him.
A human who makes a contract with the devil and uses his extraordinary abilities to solve problems beyond human understanding. Meanwhile, some summoners use their power for evil such as assassinations and crimes. Ringo and the company fight to avoid destruction, and they become involved in the hostile demon summoner society, the Phantom Society and Yatagarasu.
A spiritual being that has coexisted with humans since ancient times. They are not necessarily evil beings, and even gods and fairies are in the name of the devil. It is said that there is a secret technique to create a new demon by fusing demons in a certain place.
A gadget that supports the summoning of the devil. Each user’s COMP has a different form that you can modify to resemble your favorite items and decorations. Ringo and the company’s COMP have been modified with Aion’s technology to allow the COMP itself to be equipped with a daemon directly.
One of the features of Aion. It is the ability to intervene and improve one’s mind and soul. Ringo uses a soul hack on a deceased person to intervene in his memory when he died. It makes it possible to elicit regret for death and to revive a person with a strong desire to live.
Attack the weak points of the enemy and attack with full power!
Enjoy an even more exhilarating battle system based on the familiar press turn system. Shin Megami Tensei When Persona series.
Realm — Secret City
In the city where humans live, there is a secret city called Realm that only demon summoners can enter. In these cities, there are many facilities dedicated to summoners, such as demons walking with demon summoners, fusion of demons, upgrades of COMP, and information gathering.
