Akashic Record (アカシックレコード, Akashikku Rekōdo)? is a major term in Devil Survivor 2.
A compendium of knowledge, emotion, events, etc believed to be encoded in a plane of existence known as the astral plane. The term comes from the Sanskrit word "akasha" that means "aether", which in several mythologies was viewed as the essence of the world or the fifth element.
The Akashic Record contains all data of the past, present, and future of multiple universes that are automatically updated. The Akashic Records are controlled by a godlike entity who each is referred as "Administrator" (管理者, Kanrisha)?. Humans cannot control Akashic Record, only the Administrators or their swords are the ones able to control the Akashic Record.
Devil Survivor 2Edit
The Akashic Record is first mentioned by Fumi when Daichi asked is there already "files" on the future if the world is consisted of information. Fumi describes Akashic Record as a gigantic storage medium where all data is placed and the word "akasha" refers to the size of the medium. This also reveals that the death clips just shows the events already recorded in the Akashic Record, not a mere predictions like they initially believed. In order to reset, recreate, or create a new world, Polaris or Anguished One needs to edit the Akashic Record.
Devil Survivor 2 Record BreakerEdit
In Triangulum Arc, it's revealed that the Akashic Record has several other Administrators like Polaris and Canopus that will invade the world one after another no matter how much the world is reset. The data that crashed as the result of the reset post-Polaris' defeat is viewed as an "error" by the Administrators and thus, they view humanity as a threat that will disturb the balance of the Akashic Record. Akashic Record also has a system that able to retrieve or salvage the data that has been damage within Akasha Stratum. This system is called Astrolabe and similar to the Akashic Record, it cannot be controlled by humans, but if the human has a power that is near powerful as the Administrator, he or she can control Astrolabe. Yamato uses the Dragon Stream power he possesses to control Astrolabe.
Break Record EndingEdit
To prevent the other Administrators from invading humanity again, Yamato and Miyako come up with a solution to create a whole new world separated from the Akashic Record by using the data of deceased people inside the Akashic Record along with their own to create it, though the consequence is that they won't be able to reset the world again since the new world is completely free from Akashic Record and Anguished One and Miyako will disappear since they are part of the administrator system (though in the ending they miraculously reborn as humans in the new world).
- As stated by the Anguished One before about humans cannot control Akashic Record, he is able to control Akashic Record since he is a Septentrione, but Miyako could not since she's a human/Triangulum hybrid.
