I've just finished the second chapter and while I'm loving the game... I have no idea what's going on. The action is some of the best I've experienced in any game... but I'm having trouble following all the madness.
Can someone tell me what the hell is going on?
It's been too long since I've played it to help you understand the story (that, and I haven't finished it), but it doesn't intend to be clear only two chapters in.
Pretty much all you should be aware of right now is that Bayonetta, at some point 500 years ago, fought the chick in Red as part of some kind of ceremony. Something bad happened involving the witches getting wiped out, and Bayonetta wakes up at the bottom of a lake with a serious case of amnesia a few years before the game starts. Part of the deal to keep all her awesome witch powers is that she has to kill Angels, and when(if?) she dies she's auto-damned to Hell regardless. She's after a gem that the witches used to own before they all got killed, and being pursued by the son of the guy who accidentally woke her up.
But... the cutscenes were awesome!
