Welcome everybody to the pilot episode of Understanding the Un-understandable.
Here’s the episode:
Hope you guys enjoyed it! Like we said we want to hear from you guys regarding how we end and the direction we take. I read almost all comments posted on YouTube. If you guys are really curious, here’s what Devil Summoner 2 is actually about:
Raidou Kuzunoha is a Devil Summoner, as the name implies summons devils & demons to assist him. He is part of the Kuzunoha clan that works for the Yatagarasu. Based on some articles I looked up, the Yatagarasu is a creature/god from Eastern Mythology typically in the form of a bird. It is typically regarded as a messenger of the gods and symbolize Divine Intervention, in Japanese Mythology. The Kuzunoha clan has Raidou partnered with Gouto, a man trapped in a feline’s body. The manual states “No one really knows why this fellow’s in the body of a black cat, but only Devil Summoners can understand his words” Gouto accompanies Raidou through a trial that is meant to refresh Raidou on using his weapons and ordering his demons he’s been partnered with. Just for the tutorial he is partnered with Tan Lin, a knight from Ireland/Scottish origins, and Alraune, a humanoid mandrake from German origins. Both demons, as the game calls them, leaves after defeating another demon known as Jorougumo, a creature of Japanese mythology, that wanted to take Raidou as her lover.
After completing the trial, the clan tells Raidou & Gouto that they are to be stationed at the capital to keep it safe. Gouto then takes Raidou to a nameless shrine. The shrine is used for Devil Summoners themselves to communicate to the Yatagarasu. Speaking with the Herald of Yatagarasu, gives exposition that there is a disturbance in the capital. One that worries the Yatagarasu and would like it destroyed. Knowing that it will be a long and difficult task, a base of operations has been set up for the two at the Narumi Detective Agency. The owner of the agency knows also of the Yataagarasu and is an agent for it.
The cut-scenes that only show a mysterious mechanical bug along with a worried woman looking at paper with writing on it. I am unsure what it said due to it was in Japanese Character. The city is also in talks regarding luck. There have been circumstances where some people have been extremely lucky while others are having horrible luck. The owner of the detective agency, Shouhei Narumi, introduces Raido & Gouto to the agency. Shortly afterward, the mysterious mechanical bug lands on Narumi’s shoulder. Before anything happens Gouto jumps toward it, sending it away.
The woman from earlier, Akane Narita, then hires the agency to find a man known as Dahn for unknown reasons. Giving a large down payment, the agency decides to take the case with Raidou’s first assignment of asking around regarding Dahn.
That’s about as far as we got within one hour. Hope you guys pick up the game if you are more interested in the story!
