Taimanin Asagi, or Anti-demon Ninja Asagi, is a rather dark four episode Hentai OVA based on a game by Black Lilith.

The main character is Asagi (EroNinja), a ninja who fights demons but is planning to retire in order to marry her boyfriend Kyousuke. However, Oboro, a demon who Asagi supposedly killed earlier in her career, is back with a vengeance, and kidnaps Asagi and Kyousuke, turning Kyousuke into a monster and forcing Asagi to fight in the Chaos Arena, an illegal fight in which the losers are raped for the crowd's entertainment. Asagi's sister Sakura, also an anti-demon ninja, attempts to rescue them but is captured and also forced to fight.

The show is noted for looking like it was filmed on a shaky handheld camera with focus problems, and for the extreme tentacle and non-tentacle rape.

  • The Ace: Asagi is often refer to as " The Strongest Taimanin".
  • Action-Hogging Opening: Many of the visual novel openings with its fast pace music and imagery of the characters fighting. It almost makes you forgot that you are playing a Hentai.
    • The spin-off OVA, Taimanin Yukikaze, it's opening merits special mention. One could get the impression that they are watching an action themed anime, as opposed to a Hentai that focuses on two women being forced to be Sex Slaves.
  • Action Prologue: Tends to be a recurring theme in the franchise. Near every installment starts out with an action-heavy scene to establish the characters as Badass Action Girls. The rest of the story would focus on... "other things".
  • All Your Base Are Belong to Us/The Siege: During the midpoint of Taimanin Asagi 3, the JSDF raid Gokuruma City.
  • Alternative Continuity: Taimanin Asagi Battle Arena and the upcoming Sequel/ReBoot "Taimanin Asagi-Zero".
  • Amazon Brigade: Averted. While most of Taimanin featured are female, there are several male members within their rank, notable examples include Kuroi Yatsu and Tatsurou Akiyama.
  • And Then Oboro Was A Vampire: At some point after the first game.
  • Ask a Stupid Question: When Asagi ask "Is Sakura alive?", someone replies " Of course she is, idiot."
  • Back From the Dead: Original Oboro, TWICE.
  • Badass in Charge: By the time of the third game Asagi is pretty much the leader of the Taimanin faction.
  • Balloon Belly: Many of the characters suffers, not from overeating, but from cum inflation.
  • Big Bra to Fill: In many of the ZIZ's live action adaptations. Many of the actresses, including the ones for Sakura, Ingrid, and Oboro, are noticeable rather flat chested, which is a sharp contrast to the far more bustier animated characters.  To be fair, it probably isn't easy to find an actress in Japan that has similar physical characteristics as the character, much less "portion size", and being willing to "recreate" some of the scenes from the games.
  • Bio Augmentation: Tends to be a recurring theme in the franchise. Usually the antagonist would modify the protagonist's body in order to make them more susceptible to sex. The most popular would be drastically increasing their sensitivity toward sexual pleasure and turn their entire body into an erogenous zone.
  • Blood Sport: The Chaos Arena definitely fits the bill, only difference is that the defeated combatant can be rape and humiliated instead of killed.
  • Bob Haircut: Oboro in addition to a ponytail.
  • Body Snatcher: This how Oboro comes back to life in the first game, she body jacks Kyousuke and morphs his body to resemble hers.
  • Breakout Character: Ingrid first appears as a side character in "Taimanin Murasaki". Thanks to her overwhelming popularity among the fan base, she was given a much larger role in "Taimanin Asagi 3" and even given her own OVA series.
  • Break the Badass: The usual premise of each installment in the franchise, normally by having the antagonist trying to drive the protagonist to madness through sexual torture.
  • Breast Expansion: Medically induced to both Asagi and her younger sister in the first game.
  • Card Battle Game: Taimanin Asagi Battle Arena, double's as a *Crossover between Black Liliths various over titles(such as Majo Anneroze and Diviner Knight Towako, etc).
  • Call a Rabbit a Smeerp: In the Card Battle game demons are referred to "Asmodian's".
  • Cash Cow Franchise: The Taimanin series as a whole is Black Liliths best source of income. As of now the franchise includes (but limited to), several Spin-Offs, at least animated 4 OVA adaptations (counting Spin-Offs), a couple live action adaptations, a Card Battle game series, 2 sequels, and an upcoming Prequel/ ReBoot. Not bad for a series about a bunch of Superhero Cyberpunk ninja getting raped by their enemies.
  • City on the Water: Tokyo Kingdom.
  • Cloning Gambit: What's going on behind the scenes throughout "Taimanin Asagi 2".
  • Crapsack World: Most definitely.
  • Cold War: Between the United States of America and the Chinese Union, instead of stockpiling nukes its demonic technology.
  • Come For The Hentai Stay For Wakamoto: Anybody who watched this hentai would be fine just listening to his voice.
  • Cutting Off the Branches: The easiest way to follow the canon storyline is to see the next installment, although the series mostly follows a No Canon for the Wicked formula. Some examples include:
    • Kiryuu working for the Taimanins after the advents the Taimanin Murasaki, indicating that the game indeed ended with his capture.
    • Ingrid's route in Taimanin Murasaki is made non-canon after it was revealed that she was still a virgin is Taimanin Asagi 3.
    • In a similar case, Yukikaze and Rinko were still virgins in Taimanin Yukikaze 2, rendering most of the possible advents in the original Taimanin Yukikaze as non-canon.
  • Cyberpunk: The setting has shades of this.
  • Darker and Edgier: For a series that's already dark and edgy Taimanin Asagi 3 cranks it Up to Eleven.
  • Determinator: Asagi Igawa in a nutshell.
  • Dirty Harriet: Both Asagi and Sakura go undercover as prostitutes in the second game.
  • Discontinuity: With the exception of the original animated OVA, all OVA spin-off/sequel after the first series are non-canon.
  • The Don: Edwin Black.
  • Downer Ending: A standard of the series. Most of series's Multiple Endings are these. Also, any OVA adaptation created by ZIZ Entertainment is likely going to end on a downer ending.
  • Driven to Madness: The usual goal of the antagonist is to do this to the protagonist. For what purpose, depends on the antagonist, but usually is to turn the protagonist into their mind broken Sex Slave.
  • Elaborate Underground Base
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Ingrid, who first appeared in the Taimanin Murasaki spinoff.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Black may be a vampire criminal boss who runs an arena of rape, but even he's disgusted by how far Oboro goes for revenge.
  • Failure Is the Only Option: In Taimanin Yukikaze, Yukikaze and Rinko's mission to rescue Mizuki, Yukikaze's mother, would ultimately end in failure regardless of the choices the player makes. In the bad ending route(s), Yukikaze and Rinko would ended up as mind broken Sex Slaves. The only way the player can attain the good ending (after completing all bad ending routes) is by having the mission aborted before it can really start, resulting in a Bittersweet Ending. While Yukikaze and Rinko are spared from a life of subjugation, with the body modifications done to them so far being completely reversible, Mizuki still remains missing and can't be rescued in this game.
    • In Taimanin Asagi 3, Asagi's route can only end on a Downer Ending. The only way to attain the one true ending is by playing Asuka's route, which is unlocked after completing Asagi's route.
  • Fan Disservice: Unless you like this type of Hentai.
  • Flanderization: In the bonus mini-episode, Asagi is a pervert.
  • Friend to All Children: Ingrid actually has a big soft spot when it comes to kids. In her OVA, Kiryu was able to exploit this when capturing her.
  • Gag Boobs: Played For Drama.
  • Go-Go Enslavement: In Taimanin Yukikaze, the standard uniform for slave prostitutes at the brothel at Under Eden include evening gloves, stockings, high-heel shoes, and an almost see-through micro bikini.
  • Government Agency of Fiction:The Public Security Intelligence Agency Third Investigation Division (Section Three), which the Taimanin forces are apart of.
  • Hidden Elf Village: Gokuruma, home of the Taimanins.
  • In-Series Nickname: Ero-Kunoichi
  • Lovely Angels: The series really love to play this tropes. To list them off we have, Asagi and Sakura (Taimanin Asagi 1 and 2), Murasaki and Sakura (Taimanin Murasaki and Taimanin Asagi 3), Yukikaze and Rinko (Taimanin Yukikaze 1 and 2), and Kurenai and Ayame (Taimanin Kurenai).
  • Katanas Are Just Better: A Taimanin's main weapon of choice, although the Yatsu siblings are an exemption(Kuroe uses a huge jack knife and sub machine gun, Murasaki on the other hand uses a large battle axe).
  • Kill the Ones You Love: Asagi does this to Kyousuke close to the end. He had been turned into a monster, he was lucid at that moment, and she said "I love you" just before breaking his neck and killing him quickly. You would have to have a heart made out of stone not to feel anything over that.
    • In Taimanin Asagi 3 near the end of Asagi's route she is force to choose between sparing her loved ones or killing them, go ahead and guess which one is required for the true ending.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Norio Wakamoto??! What are you doing in my Hentai! Stupid Sexy Wakamoto... Well, there's no use in wasting a perfectly fine erection...
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Asagi kills off her Arch-Enemy Oboro in this way at the end of the first game.

  • Multiple Endings: Comes standard in each visual novel. Most of them are usually Downer Endings, but the one good/bittersweet ending were the heroes escape is usually the canon ending.
  • Naughty Tentacles: A metric fuckton exist in every single game.
  • Netorare Genre: There are elements of this in the first Taimanin Asagi and in Tainmanin Yukikaze.
  • Ninja School: Gosha Academy. Somewhat double's as a Super-Hero School.
  • No Canon for the Wicked: If the sequels/spin-offs are any indication, it is that the canon endings of each of the visual novels are normally " the good ending" (the heroes escape, the bad guys are captured/killed). However, please keep in mind that the best possible ending can still be a Bittersweet Ending.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: In the second episode, Asagi suffers an of this at the hands of a wrestler woman, Power Lady.
  • Noble Demon: Ingrid and Edwin Black to a certain extent.
  • Porn with Plot: Yes, there is a LOT of porn, but once you get past it there is surprisingly amount of detail and backstory to the game world, which explains why it got so crapsack.
  • Pyrrhic Victory: The true ending of the second game.
  • One-Winged Angel: Edwin Black in the third game.
  • Ordinary High School Student: Sakura, doesn't last long as she eventually transfers to an Academy of Adventure after the Chaos Arena incident.

  • Sexy Backless Outfit: Many of the Taimanin's uniforms have their backs complete exposed.
  • Sidekick: Sakura Igawa, up until the third game.
  • Slave Brand: Most of them usual have a magical purposes other than mark a person as a slave, for example the brands used by Under Eden in Taimanin Yukikaze is used to prevent one of their slave prostitutes from running owayr disobeying. If they do their of these two action, the branded person feel pain, or in worse case scenario, have their limbs blown up. The heart-shape brand in Taimanin Asagi 3 is an extreme form of brainwashing, forcing the brand to perform any action ordered by the person who branded them.
  • Spin-Off: Quite a few in fact. Taimanin Murasaki, Taimanin Yukikaze 1, Taimanin Yukikaze 2, and Taimanin Kurenai.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Murasaki really, REALLY loves Asagi. To the point where she has Sakura steal Asagi's bath towels and seeing her naked gives Murasaki heat flashes.

  • Took A Level In Badass: Sakura goes from plucky sidekick in the first two games, to a plucky combat instructor for the Taimanin school in the third game.
  • Token Good Teammate: Ingrid, for the NOMAD organization. She is pretty much the only member that does not indulge in raping or torturing her opponents. In fact, the only thing "evil" about her is that she just works for the organization. Naturally, this makes her a target among the other members.
  • Twenty Minutes Into the Future: The series takes place in near future, usually the story would label year(s) to be 20XX. Accord to Word of God, the series takes place somewhere between the years 2050-2100.

  • Urban Fantasy
  • You Have Failed Me: The losers of fights are severely punished.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Asagi: Blue. Sakura: Yellow. And Oboro: Red-violet. Murasaki: Blue. Ingrid: Pink.
  • Your Princess Is in Another Castle: Twice in the Taimanin Yukikaze visual novel, although it is more like your "Your Mother is at Another Evil Brothel". One matter what choices the player make, Yukikaze will not be able to save her mother in either game.
  • Waif Fu: Asagi is stronger than she looks..
  • Why Won't You Die?: Oboro proves about as difficult to kill off as The Master from Doctor Who.
  • Wretched Hive: Tokyo Kingdom, home to terrorist organizations (for example the Ryuumon), unwanted refugees, and lower class demons(Orcs, Kobolds, and goblins ,etc).
    • Yomihara can also be considered this. Both the Taimanins and the Japenese government has little to no control of this place. It is for the most part, sealed off from the rest of the world with only a few individuals being able to go in or out of the town. Slave trade is very popular in Yomihara.

The Second "anime'' has examples of: Edit

  • Adaptation Decay: Many key plot points from The game were not carried over to the adaptation( Such as Edwin Black manipulating events from behind the scenes, why vampire Oboro shows up in the end.
  • Affably Evil: Dark!Asagi and Saya are surprisingly very polite.
  • Balloon Belly: Asagi and Sakura, willed with semen, after sending three days being raped by the demonic citizen of Tokyo Kingdom.
  • Big Bad: Oboro's clone.
  • Breast Expansion: Medically induced with fluids to Asagi,to the extent that her nipples become clitorises
  • Butt Monkey: Asagi and Saya.
  • Capture and Replicate: The original Oboro's plan to capture Asagi and Sakura and replace them with loyal clones. She would then use the clones to capture other Taimanins, namely Murasaki, and clone and replace them as well. The originals will be used as mind broken Sex Slaves for Tokyo Kingdom, likely for the rest of their lives.
  • Curb Stomp Battle: Saya is on both sides of this trope.
  • Cute Monster Girl: Saya.
  • Discontinuity: Considering that the OVA ends on a Downer Ending it's safe to assume that it isn't canon.
  • Downer Ending: The OVA ends with Asagi and Sakura being replaced by clones, while original are being force to act as Sex Slaves for the demons of Tokyo Kingdom. The clones, who are under the control of the original Oboro, plan on capturing Murasaki, replacing her with a clone, and then subjugating her to same fate as their original counterparts.
  • Sequelitis: While the "Taimanin Asagi 2" OVA series wasn't exactly "bad", it is still considered disappointing because it wasn't on the same level of "enjoyment" as the original OVA or the spin-off "Hell Knight Ingrid". This is mostly due to poor execution, stiff movement, and unoriginal scenarios.
  • Standard Evil Organization Squad: Ryuumon.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: After of some days being treated as sex toy by Oboro and her demons, Asagi activates her demonic power, pity her awakened body cannot keep up and she still loses anyhow.
