Shin Megami Tensei V
The protagonist is a third-year high school student at dormitory-based Jouin Academy, living an ordinary life. One day, while going to school through Shinagawa Station with friends, the station was closed because of a nearby murder causing a traffic backup. Searching for one of their friends, Ichiro Dazai, who wandered off in a different direction, he and Yuzuru Atsuta enter the Takanawa Tunnel, which suddenly collapses on them.
Having regained consciousness, the protagonist finds himself lost in a desolated and deserted Tokyo, a mysterious world called "Da'at." Suddenly attacked by demons, while running away, a mysterious man appears before him, and lends him a hand. In the process, the protagonist fuses with him and becomes a "Nahobino," a condemned being, using this power to fight back and wander through Da'at.
Eventually, he, Yuzuru and Ichiro reunite and return back to real-life Tokyo safely, where they're awaited by Tao Isonokami, who informs them about the other world: in addition to their world, there is also Da'at, a collapsed Tokyo where legendary demons awaken from the darkness and take aim at Tokyo and humans. However, there is an organization that fights these demons, Bethel, with Tao being a veteran member, and the three agree to join to protect Tokyo.
But as soon as they return to their peaceful lives, Bethel makes an emergency call, with demons suddenly appearing all over Tokyo.
