Beware the awesome SMT 'finger of death'. Any time the game feels you getting too cocky, up pops a monster who can Mudo you in an eyeblink or stuff you up in any number of ways.
I just did the Isamu bit after Obelisk and was literally one pixel from exiting the Amala Network when I had the random encounter 'finger of death'. Frustrating much? I mean, I have Black Rider, Daisoujou and Red Rider, all over level 80 with me and I can still get treated to the lovely game over screen before I even know what happened lol. :D

Well, I'm now training both my Momunofu and Nozuchi so I can get their evolved forms respectively. My Bicorn has lost his use and it's space in my inventory annoys me. I cannot wait to fuse it out. I'm training in the eastern part of Ikebukuro, which gives me 150-200 exp a fight and makes Nozuchi training not terribly hard.
Is Makami worth grinding Inugami for?
