The story begins with an expanded account of God's attack on Soddom. Scientist couple Dante and Medusa are saved by their college Satan who takes them on his aircraft to their laboratory. There they, along with their coworkers Beelzebub, Astaroth, Asmodeus and Lucifer, Satan's sister, board weaponized aircraft in order to fight God. Meanwhile God possesses and forcefully merges inhabitants of Soddom into two giant warriors, Adam and Eve, and outfits them with armor constructed from the wreckage of the city, before preceding to kill off the remaining inhabitants. Dante and the scientists arrive and take down Adam, but in the fight the fires of God merge them with their aircrafts, thus turning them into demons. The people freed from Adam are similarly turn into demons by the flames. The parts of God that inhabited them fly off and posses other creatures, creating angelic beings. The demons and the angelic beings go to war and ultimately it is down to Dante and Eve. At first it looks as if Dante has the upper hand, but when Dante brakes Eve's helmet he recognizes his younger sister Olga in Eve's forehead. Eve seizes the opportunity to stab Dante and seal him inside the Himalayas.
The story shifts to the time frame of the original series. Medusa and a grope of Satanists are trying to use her psychic abilities to awaken the memories of Dante's reincarnation, Ryo Utsugi. Later Ryo witness a woman being assaulted by a armed men. Ryo comes to her defense, but before a fight can brake out the men's superior intervenes. The superior reveals himself to be Ryo's friend and kendo-teacher Sosuke Oshiba.

Eventually she transform, revealing herself to be a demon, and Oshiba decapitate her. Later Oshiba take Ryo to the men's headquarters and they reveal themselves to be members of "Guardian Justice", a militant subsidiary of the secret organization "Souls of God", tasked with finding and annihilating demons. Ryo eventually joins their cause.

Dante begins to destroy Tokyo in a confused blood fueled rampage, but eventually Ryo regains consciousness. Ryo separates himself from Dante's aircraft, but still retain demonic qualities. As he flies away he across another demon named Zennon. Zennon who had sided with God attacks Dante with his army of 100 demons. Dante defeats some of them but is eventually forced to escape. When Ryo return home Aya reacts with shock seeing him alive and when footage of Dante's rampage, showing Ryo in his forehead, is aired on TV Ryo have to escape again.
Ryo instead seek refuge among the now-homeless inhabitants of Tokyo, but Zennon and his army arrive and start killing them off. Ryo confronts Zennon and the two fight. Ryo re-merge with Dante's aircraft, regaining Dante's original demon form, and kills Zennon. The rest of Zennon's army are scattered as Medusa, Lucifer and Satan arrive. Together they help Dante regain his memories.
