In General Edit

Taimanins or "Anti-Demon Ninjas". A group of super powered ninjas tasked with dealing with the corruptions created by demons and "evil influenced" people. Each taimanin seems to have their own unique superhuman ability (e.g. Asagi's Super Speed, Sakura's ability to travel through shadows, Yukikaze's ability to generate lighting, and etc.). Most taimanin live in the fictional village of Gokuruma, which doubles as their base of operation. Younger taimanin are trained at Gosha Academy. Usually taimanin are often paired in teams of two when going on missions, sometimes three or more depending on the difficult of the mission. However, more experienced veteran Taimanin have been known to go on solo missions.

  • Action Girl: Many of the female Taimanins, although they tend to zigzag between this and Faux Action Girls.
  • Airplane Arms: The opening of Taimanin Asagi Zero shows that Taimanin tend do this when they run, like most other anime ninjas.
  • Amazon Brigade: Subverted. While most of the Taimanin featured are female, there are several male members within their ranks, notable examples include Kurou Yatsu and Tatsurou Akiyama.
  • Angst? What Angst?: Being able to invoke this trope seems to be a job requirement. It's also one of the only explanations for why every Taimanin who has gotten tortured/raped, ESPECIALLY Asagi, hasn't gone completely insane. This can be subverted in the series's many Downer Ending routes, but those are all non-canon to the main story, and are more like What If scenarios.
  • Badass Crew: They are a group of super powered, Demon Slaying ninjas.
  • Badass Family: The occupation seems to be a family business. Examples include the Igawa sisters (Asagi and Sakura) and the Yatsu siblings(Murasaki, Kurou, and Aiko). Also, the Mizuki, Akiyama, and Kokawa families have apparently been Taimanins for generations. The Fridge Brilliance in this is that most taimanins acquire their abilities genetically, as its implied that all taimanins have some form of demon lineage.
  • Cartwright Curse: While dating a sexy demon slaying ninja sound awesome on paper, many of the boyfriends of a female Taimanin tends to end up being a Cosmic Plaything in this series, just ask Kyousuke and Tatsurou.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Each has their own uniquely colored uniform.
  • Conveniently an Orphan: Most Taimanin tend to be this with Yukikaze and Kurenai being the few aversions.
  • Combat Stilettos: All female taimanin wear them, because Rule of Sexy.
  • Demon Slaying: Their main job, hence the name "Anti-Demon Ninja".
  • Dude Magnet: Many of the female Taimanins fit this description, but in a Crapsack World filled with depraved rapists, this isn't a good thing.
  • Faux Action Girl: Zigzagged between being genuine Action Girls and this. They are usually portrayed as Action Girls during the standard Action Prologue in each installment. Since this series is a Hentai, they would spend most of the story being captured and sexually tortured by whoever is acting as the Big Bad at time. However, in most cases, the second they are free from whatever was keeping them subjugated to the villains... let's just say it does not end well for the bad guys.
  • Flash Step: All Taimanin seems to posses this ability.
  • Fighter, Mage, Thief: The main trio in Taimanin Yukikaze seems to fit this. Rinko is the Fighter being the Master Swordsman of the trio, whose fighting style is best equip to take on opponents at close range. Yukikaze is the Mage since she uses Handgun that shoot out lightning bullets. Out of the three, Yukikaze possesses the most destructive power. Tatsurou is the Thief since his wind abilities is best suited for stealth and support, but has the least offensive abilities.
  • Form-Fitting Wardrobe: Tends to be the standard uniform for most Taimanins.
  • Highly-Visible Ninjas: Seeing as how brightly colored their uniforms are. There is also the fact that their outfits are more likely to draw attention.
  • Idiot Ball: Remember this is a Hentai, so naturally your favorite heroes are going to get hit with this hard, and repeatedly.
  • Lovely Angels: Many of their two person teams tend to form this.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Well this is a Hentai, so most of the female Taimanins fit this description.
  • Ninjas: A near-future Cyberpunk variation.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: Superhero, Demon Slaying Cyberpunk ninjas with demon ancestry. Individual members like Kurenai (half-vampire) and Asuka (cyborg) take it a step further.
  • Power Trio: Many of the taimanins form this. In the main games, we have Asagi, Sakura, and Murasaki. In the Taimanin Yukikaze Spin-Off series, we have Yukikaze, Rinko, and Tatsurou.
  • Reforged Into a Minion: While most bad endings would result in a Taimanin become a Sex Slave to the Big Bad of their game, there are a few instances where the Taimanin would also double as an enforcer for the villain. Mizuki Shiranui is a canon example of this.
  • Roof Hopping
  • Sexy Backless Outfit: Many of the Taimanin's uniforms have their backs complete exposed. Not only is this done because of Rule of Sexy, it makes the outfits more practical to taking them on and off.
  • Sleeves Are for Wimps: With a few exceptions like Rinko and some of the males, most Taimanin wear sleeveless uniforms, both as a showing of strength and because Rule of Sexy.
  • So Beautiful It's a Curse: Once again this is a rather dark Hentai, so naturally many of the female Taimanins suffer because of this.
  • Spy Catsuit: The standard uniform.
  • Stripperiffic: Many of the Taimanin tend to wear rather revealing outfits, as one would expect from a hentai.
  • Super-Powered Evil Side: According to Clone Oboro, all taimanins have the potential of acquiring this, due to their demon linage. So far, only Asagi and Kurenai has been able to obtain this. However, Taimanin Asagi Battle Arena does show what many of the Taimanins (including Sakura and Murasaki) would look like if they ever attain this power.
  • Superpowerful Genetics: Taimanin's have various abilities (Asagi can move at light speed, Sakura can travel through shadows, etc). Its actually implied by Oboro that most, if not all, Taimanins have some form of demon lineage, which would explain their supernatural abilities.
  • Vapor Wear: If it wasn't already obvious from the characters' profile images, most Taimanin don't wear anything under their uniform.

Asagi Igawa Edit

A t012a

This story's main character. The game operates along her point of view. She is one person of the Anti-Demon Ninja. She is a female ninja of justice going against the demon people's heretical doctrine. She lost both of her parents early and now only has her sister. Ingenious at the martial art of fencing, she has speedily excelled her training, and is recognized from her achievements thus far as the strongest of those repelling the demon influence. Her childhood friend, and her love, Kyousuke Sawaki, kept her father company as a pupil of his until he passed away. Above anything else, all female ninjas, like Asagi, walk among the scenes of carnage, and as such, believes that her duties always take priority, thus regards and acknowledges lovemaking as strictly taboo, and as such, Asagi is forced, much too often, to cast away Kyousuke's love.

Ninja Arts: Sword Battle Petal A kind of branching technique. It is able to kill several opponents all at once, sending it out in an arc to hundreds of bodies at its greatest efficiency. Furthermore, its scope reaches one's field of vision, being able to send out in an instant anywhere a delivery, sort of like an aircraft fighter locking on a target. This battle system of ninjitsu is at its strongest when its used in close quarters.

  • The Ace: Often regarded as the "strongest Taimanin".

  • Butt Monkey: Has an entire franchise focused on torturing her, her family, her friend, and students. Life isn't exactly good to her.

  • Dirty Harriet: In Taimanin Asagi 2, she and Sakura disguise themselves as prostitutes while investigating Tokyo Kingdom.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Characters from both genders are shown to be attracted to her, for example, Murasaki has a huge crush on her. However, this isn't necessarily a good thing, considering many have the female villains want to have their way with her.
  • Evil Costume Switch: Two. One happens when her Super-Powered Demonic Side takes over, which has a darker take on her usual kunoichi attire, and the other occurs courtesy of Edwin Black in one of the endings to the third game, in which Asagi gets turned into a vampire.
  • Expy: As a whole, Asagi is considered the Hentai version of Taki and Hibana.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The "Responsible Sibling" to Sakura's "Foolish Sibling".
  • Faux Action Girl: Is often shown losing a majority of her fights, but to be fair, her defeats are often caused by a case of Worf Had the Flu.
  • Green Eyes
  • Heir to the Dojo
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: In the first game. All she ever wanted was to settle down with her childhood friends and put her Taimanin days behind her. Unfortunately, her past caught up to her, and she decide to stay as a Taimanin ever since.
  • Jail Bait Wait: Waited until Kousuke was of age (about roughly 9 years) before starting an intimate relationship with him. Granted, she probably didn't consider having a relationship with Kousuke until he was close to the age of consent.
  • The Leader: Became the official leader of Taimanin organization sometime before the advents of Taimanin Yukikaze.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Asagi's power allows her to move at the speed of light.
  • Lovely Angels: Forms this with Sakura during the first two games.
  • Magical Girlfriend: For her completely normal boyfriend, Kyousuke. Slightly subverted with Kousuke since, unlike his brother, Kousuke does possess some form of supernatural abilities.
  • The Mentor: Being a teacher at Goshu Academy and later the leader of the Taimanins, Asagi had a large part in training many of the younger Taimanins. Some of her students include her sister Sakura, Murasaki, Yukikaze, Rinko, Tatsuro, and her prodigy and adopted daughter, Asuka.
  • A Mother to Her Men
  • Ms. Robinson: In TA3, after she began to have a relationship with the teenaged Kousuke, the younger brother of her late boyfriend. Keep in mind that Asagi would be in her early 30s at this time.

  • Speed Blitz: Her unique ninja ability is basically this.
  • Spy Catsuit: Her signature outfit. Usually wears a purple one, but few occasions, she is also seen wearing a white one.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: She's definitely the more feminine of the two as opposed to her sister, being much more demure and ladylike.
  • Wife Husbandry: A gender-swap variation from the usual examples. Asagi is Kousuke's legal guardian after his brother's death, and has raised the boy for the past 9 years. Seeing as Kousuke would be in his mid-to-late teens in TA3, it's safe to say that Asagi has raised him since childhood, doesn't stop them from forming a relationship.


Sakura Igawa Edit

S t012a

Heroine and Asagi's younger sister. A beautiful girl favoring a winning, vigorous attitude. She holds one side of her sister as being brave and gallant. Much like Asagi, she's endowed with the strong ability of the ninja from heredity, yet her strength is still much at an apprentice level. She wants to use her strength for the benefit of justice, aspiring to become an Anti-Demon Ninja member, opposing evil with Asagi. Nevertheless, she keeps her pursuit of knowledge and training hidden from her older sister.

  • Adorkable: She can be quite the goofball at times.

They are later brought back to life as demonic futanari with few, if any, memories of Asagi, and under Black's instructions gleefully torture, rape, and kill their own students, and attempt to do the same to Asagi. In one of the endings, they even keep her as a sex slave.
  • Breast Expansion: Suffers this in the OVA series, thank to Oboro. Her breasts were enlarged to gigantic portions. As a Mythology Gag, her breast inflated in TA3 to the same portions they were in the OVA for one of her H-scenes.

  • Cat Smile: Most likely given to her to highlight her youthful personality.

  • Deuteragonist: In Taimanin Asagi 1 and 2.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Has her Ship Tease moments with Murasaki. However, like her sister, the darker variation of this is that she has been raped by other women (namely Oboro and Saya) as a result.
  • Foil: To Asagi. While Asagi is normally serious, stern, and responsible, Sakura is energetic, silly, and carefree. Asagi is a veteran Taimanin, while Sakura is relatively new at being a Taimanin during the earlier parts of the series.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The "Foolish Sibling" to Asagi's "Responsible Sibling".

  • Lovely Angels: Forms this with Asagi during the first two game. She later partners up with Murasaki in later installments.

  • Otaku: Love to spend her free time watching anime and sentai shows.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red Oni to Asagi's, and later Murasaki's, Blue Oni.
  • Reforged Into a Minion: In Asagi's non-canon route in TA3 and in the OVA(see Brainwashed and Crazy).

  • Spy Catsuit: A brownish-gray one with yellow highlights.
  • Taking the Bullet: In Taimanin Asagi 2, Sakura does this to protect Asagi from Saya's attack. This act is what fueled Asagi to use her inner demon, Kage, to defeat Saya. Although injured, she does survive from this.
  • Tan Lines: She has a slight sun tan in TA3, which is made much more noticeable when her tan lines are revealed.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Tomboy to Asagi's Girly Girl.
  • Took a Level In Badass: Sakura becomes a combat instructor for Goshu Academy by the time of the third game.
  • Villainous Incest: Corrupted!Sakura from TA3 is perfectly fine with raping her sister, granted Corrupted!Sakura was brainwashed to forget that she and Asagi are sisters, not that Corrupted!Sakura cared when told this by Asagi.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Murasaki.
  • Woman Child: She can be a bit childish for her age (late-teens in TA1 and TA2, mid-20s in TA3). Not to mention she still watches anime.

Murasaki Yatsu Edit

M t012a

Murasaki Yatsu starts out as a up and coming Taimanin in training at Goshu academy and Kuroi Yatsu younger sister. Despite her youth and inexperience, many veteran taimanin, including Asagi, see great potential in Murasaki. Of course due to her beauty and skills she becomes the idol of Goshu academy, also developing a rivalry/friendship(much to her dismay)with Sakura. Similarly to her brother Kurou, Murasaki's ninja ability grants her a vast Healing Factor which allows her to regrow entire limbs and Super Strength.

Murasaki power basically grants her immortality unless her head and heart are destroyed.

  • Affectionate Nickname: Sakura often refers to her as "Mu-chan". Murasaki is less than amused with the nickname.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Loses both her arms during a fight with Kiryuu at the beginning of her game.... she got better.
  • An Axe to Grind: Her signature weapon.
  • Baby Factory: In the Hell Knight Ingrid OVA, Kiryuu plan to subject both her and Ingrid to this fate in order to mass produce an army of Nabelius (cerberus-like hell hounds), however she was spared from this thanks to the timely rescue of her brother and Edwin Black.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: Toward Sakura.
  • Bi the Way: Is one the few confirmed bisexual characters in the series.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: In Taimanin Asagi 3, Sakura and Murasaki are killed by enemy soldiers and then absorbed by Edwin Black. They are later brought back to life as demonic futanari with few, if any, memories of Asagi, and under Black's instructions gleefully torture, rape, and kill their own students, and attempt to do the same to Asagi. In one of the endings, they even keep her as a sex slave.
  • Cool Mask: A pink one with a butterfly design as part of her alternate outfit in both Battle Arena and in the upcoming TA0.
  • Covert Pervert: Tries to act stern and serious most of the time, but has a hard time hiding her sexual desires for Asagi.
  • Demoted to Extra: Goes from being the main protagonist in her own spin-off game, to become the Deuteragonist in the Hell Knight Ingrid OVA, to being only a supporting character in Taimanin Asagi 3.
  • Eating the Eye Candy: Can't help staring at Asagi while they were changing in their swimsuits. In Taimanin Asagi Gaiden, Murasaki notice how Sakura's figure has been developing. In an inner dialog, she commented on how Sakura's figure would eventually be comparable to Asagi's.
  • Enemy Mine: During the climax of TM, Kiryuu forces Murasaki to team up with him to fight off Ingrid in exchange for Sakura's safety.

  • 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.
  • Super Strength: Arguable the strongest Taimanin in terms of physical strength.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Lets just say she is not to happy with the fact that she has to work along side Kiryuu, after he was forced to work for the Taimanins. Ironically, it's because of this she's also been assigned to keep Kiryuu in check, since his Villainous Crush on her makes her the perfect handler.
  • Tsundere: Tends to act like this towards Sakura.
  • Underwear of Power: As you can see for her profile image, her panties can be seen whenever she is wearing her Taimanin outfit, unlike most Taimanins who either wear a formfitting catsuit or a Leotard of Power.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Sakura. Murasaki is willing to suffer all kinds of humiliation if it means protecting her best friend. In a "non-canon" route in TM, even after Murasaki seemly devolves to Kiryuu's mind broken slave, she will snap out of it if he kills Sakura, and then would leave Kiryuu to die at the hands of Ingrid or kill him herself.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: While she might not act like it most of the time, she does deeply care for Sakura. Not that she will admit it.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Grade A.

  • A-Cup Angst: Hates it when characters point out her flat chest.
  • Ambiguously Bi: While Yukikaze clearly has feelings for Tatsurou, she does have her Les Yay moments with Rinko. It's worth mentioning that Rinko was Yukikaze's second kiss after Tatsurou, although at the time they were little kids that was just experimenting with the concept of kissing, so they didn't considered it as a "true kiss".

However, what she didn't realize that the place she was infiltrating specialized in slave prostitution. The place would brand their prostitute with a Slave Brand, forcing them to obey the people there. As a result, she was forced to be an actual prostitute.
  • Expy: Seems to be one for Lily Ramses Futaba from Tentacles and Witches, another one of Lilith-soft games that came out 2 years before Taimanin Yukikaze. Both share similar appearances, including similar outfits, tan skin, Girlish Pigtails, have short stature, and both are Pettanko. Also, both act like Tsundere toward their Love Interest, although Yukikaze is no where near as aggressive as Lily. There is also the fact both Lily and Yukikaze were created by the same artist, Aoi Nagisa.
  • Girlish Pigtails

  • Rapunzel Hair: They reach down to her knees.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red Oni to Rinko's Blue Oni.
  • Reforged Into a Minion: Averted in TY1. Unlike Shiranui and Rinko, Yukikaze act purely as a Sex Slave if she ends up "mind broken" in one of the bad endings.
  • Shana Clone: A short, Pettanko, teenaged girl with Girlish Pigtails that is a Tsundere and the leading male characters "main" Love Interest. Checks on all accounts.
  • Skilled but Naive: While Yukikaze is undoubtedly a powerful Taimanin and can easily destroy legion of demons in a straight up fight, Yukikaze lacks the experience needed when dealing with missions that rely more on deception and undercover work. Tatsurou even states that Yukikaze has some difficulties talking to the other students at Goshu academy that are outside her friend circle. As a result, Zokuto was able to trick Yukikaze into letting herself be captured for real.
  • Tan Lines: They are quite noticeable when she is wearing anything that is more revealing than the Taimanin outfit, or nothing at all.

Some of her abilities include being able to increase her senses so she can see long distances, see at impossible angles, and through walls. She can also create portal that teleport her up to a range of 1 km.

  • Big Brother Attraction: Or younger brother attraction in this case. Rinko is actually sexually attracted to her younger brother, Tatsurou, and even wanted to give her virginity to him. This is subverted in the OVA series, her desire for her brother was removed due to Adaptation Distillation.
  • Brother-Sister Incest: Although it is mostly one-sided, on Rinko's side. During the advents of Taimanin Yukikaze, Rinko would approach Tatsurou and offered to give her virginity to him before going on her mission to investigate Under Eden.

She outright order Tatsurou to take her virginity in the first TY, the only reason why they did not go through with it was because Rinko felt that Tatsurou's first time should be done with Yukikaze. That being said, she is also pretty open with the idea that she, Yukikaze, and Tatsurou should form a threesome relationship. Even when they were kids, Rinko was upset at Yukikaze and Tatsurou for "leaving her out" of their first kiss, and had both Tatsurou and Yukikaze kiss her.
  • Curtain Match the Windows: Purple hair, purple eyes.
  • Dark Mistress: To Real in the Fallen Rinko bad ending of TY1.
  • A Day in the Limelight: In the "training dairy" section from the TY visual novel, which can only be unlocked after completing the other sections of the game. In the main story, Rinko and Yukikaze are separate by Real so that he could "train" them separately, with the story following Yukikaze point-of-view. The "training dairy" section details what has been happening to Rinko during the time the two were separated.
    • The second episode of the TY OVA, which is an animated adaption of the visual novel's "training dairy" section, also focuses on RInko.
  • Determinator: Was able to retain her sanity longer than Yukikaze during their time at Under Eden, in the bad ending(s) route. In the anime, takes spending an entire two week on being endlessly raped by a demonic flesh machine until she finally broke down. In visual novel, she retained her sanity in 2 out of the 3 bad endings, and tries to save Tatsurou and Yukikaze from Under Eden despite the magical Slave Brand placed on her. It took a brainwashed Shiranui to subdue her.
  • Dirty Harriet: Initially, although she pretended to be captured to be sold as a prostitute, not necessarily disguise herself as one. However, like Yukikaze, she was forced to be an actual slave prostitute.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: Surprising down quite often in the OVA series, as her hairstyle is changed in each episode. This seems to highlight the changes in her personality. During the first episode, she would wear her hair in a ponytail. Throughout the episode she would act cheerful, wise, optimistic, and acts as a supporting friend to Yukikaze. In the second episode, she let her hair down. During this episode, she is much more stubborn and aggressive, and spends most of the episode trying to resist the sexual torture that she was subjected to her. By the third episode, her hair is changed again to a side plait, and is noticeable much more different than her hair style from the first episode. During this episode, she is now reduced to a quite and submissive Sex Slave, who is no longer cable to comforting her friends and won't even look at her, greatly differing from her personality from the first episode.
  • Expy: Seems to be one for Misao Yukishiro from Misao: Injoku Ninpouden, another Lilith-Soft game that came out before Taimanin Yukikaze.
    • On an interesting note, Misao is actually an Expy of Saeko Busujima from Highschool of the Dead, making Rinko an expy of Saeko by extension.
  • Face-Heel Turn: During the non-canon "Fallen Rinko" ending. During this ending, she become Real's willing slave and even betrays Tatsurou and Yukikaze by fighting off Tatsurou. She averts Face Monster Turn due to the narration claiming that her change in sides is done out of her own free will.
  • Foil: Is one for Yukikaze. While both are Taimanins born from a entire family of demon-hunting ninjas, the two could not be anymore opposite of each other. Yukikaze is short, flat-chested, has an aggressive personality, and fights with guns. While Rinko is tall, large breasted, has a calm and cool personality, and fights with a katana.
  • French Maid Outfit: Wears one in Taimanin Yukikaze 2.
  • Gag Boobs: Hates it when characters make fun of her for her large breasts.
  • Go-Go Enslavement: Like Yukikaze, she had to wear the standard uniform of a slave prostitutes of Under Eden.
  • I Have Come Too Far: Like Yukikaze, during TY1 Rinko would refuse to abort her mission because she felt this way.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Despite her own sexual desires for her brother, she fully supports his relationship with Yukikaze. Although it's heavily implied that Rinko wants to, or a least won't mind, being in a threesome relationship with them.
  • Laughing Mad: In the OVA series and in one of the visual novel's "training dairy" section. After being endlessly sexual tortured for two weeks straight by Under Eden's "flesh vessel" (see Real's entry for more details), the first thing she does after being released was break down in broken laughter.
  • Lovely Angels: With Yukikaze.
  • Mad Love: To Real in the non-canon Fallen Rinko ending where she develops Stockholm Syndrome. She knows that she is nothing more than a slave to him, but is willing betray her brother and Yukikaze for him.
  • Master Swordsman: Arguable, the best sword fighter the Taimanin have to offer, hence her title the Slashing Taimanin/Demon Cutting. It's worth mentioning that Rinko was stated to just as skilled as her father, who happened to be Asagi's teacher in swordsmanship.
  • Mistaken for Gay: According to her character bio, Rinko never showed any interest in men when she was at Goshu academy, leading to many of her classmates to spread rumors that she is secretly a lesbian. However, this not really the case.
  • More Than Mind Control: In the non-canon "Fallen Rinko" route in TY1, Rinko find Happiness in Slavery and develops Stockholm Syndrome for Real. Interestingly enough, the narrator claim Rinko's development into this is done partly out of her own free will, otherwise in all other endings she has the will power to fight against Under Eden at the climax of the game.
  • No Accounting for Taste: One of her attractions in TY1 include her biological brother. In the non-canon "Fallen Rinko" route, she falls in love with Real, an evil Fat Bastard Gonk. We would say the latter is due to brainwashing if the narration didn't make it clear that this attraction developed from More Than Mind Control.
  • Purple Is Power: Like Asagi, she wears a purple Taimanin outfit, and is stated to be one of the stronger Taimanins in the series. She also has purple eyes, and purple hair.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Depending on the Artist her hair length would either just reach down past her knees, or even touching the ground while she is standing. Either way her hair is very long.
  • Red Baron: The Slashing Taimanin (depending on the translation she could be referred to as the Slasher Taimanin, the Oni Slashing Taimanin, or Demon Cutting Taimanin).
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue Oni to Yukikaze's Red.
  • Reforged Into a Minion: In the non-canon "Fallen Rinko" route in TY1, where she not only becomes Real's slave, but also his enforcer.
  • Sex Slave: In the bad ending routes in both Taimanin Yukikaze 1 and 2, and her fate in the OVA series.
  • Skilled but Naive: Between her mature personality and appearance, it's easy to forget that Rinko is still relatively new at being a Taimanin. As a result, Rinko doesn't seem to full grasp how the Crapsack World around her works. Although she is not as naive as Yukikaze, she was still easily tricked by Zokuto into letting herself be captured for real.
  • Space Master: Her main power is her ability to control space within 1 km, with all her other abilities being byproducts of her "void arts". Rinko has mentioned there are limitation on what she can and cannot do.
  • Spy Catsuit: A purple one with a Cleavage Window.
  • Statuesque Stunner: According to her character bio, she is 172 cm tall (or 5'8 feet) and is currently the tallest female Taimanin in the series, but is no less attractive.
  • Stockholm Syndrome: In the non-canon "Fallen Rinko" route in TY1, Rinko falls in love with Real, the man who enslaved, raped, and tormented her, and become "a women who would throw everything away for his sake".
  • Super Senses: One of her ninja abilities allows her to greatly enhance her senses. Her most used ability is magical enhance her eyesight which allows her to see over great distances, and being observe things at outside her line of sight.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Arguably, she can be considered one for Asagi. Since the TY spin-off series needs to focus on new characters, many believe she was created to be a stand-in for Asagi due to their similar appearance and role. It doesn't help that the TY's Big Bads tend to focus more on her than Yukikaze.
  • That Man Is Dead: A variation of this. In the non-canon Rinko degraded route "training dairies", the narrator state Rinko's old self has died after she become a willing slave to Real that (somehow) has orgasms out nothing by pure loyalty for him.
  • Thinking Up Portals: One her unique abilities is to create portals that she can use to teleport herself and her companies up a distance of 1 km. However, creating them can be a bit taxing to her, so she only uses them on a few occasions.
  • Trojan Prisoner: Acts as this with Yukikaze in order to investigate the brothel Under Eden. It goes as well as you would expect.
  • True Companions: Took a mission where she knew that she would forced to act as a prostitute, in a attempt to find a lead to the whereabouts of her friend's missing mother, a mission that Asagi greatly opposed to and was even encouraged not to do it, she still did it anyway for Yukikaze. That is some dedication, even if it is a little misplaced.
  • Undying Loyalty: Toward Yukikaze as she willing to endure the humiliation of being a slave of Under Eden if it means helping Yukikaze.
    • This is averted in the non-canon Rinko degraded ending where she betrays Yukikaze after becoming Real's willing slave and her loyalty switches to him. Rinko's final "training dairy" section reveal she can acquire orgasms out of nothing but pure loyalty toward him.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Kind of disappeared half way through the third episode in the OVA, with no mention of what became of her. Although one can assume that she is still a Sex Slave for Under Eden and is possible pregnant like Yukikaze was in the epilogue.
  • X-Ray Vision: Another one her unique ninja abilities.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Her Under Eden uniform in TY1, her maid outfit in TY2, as well as her school uniform, all being Grade A.

Tatsurou AkiyamaEdit

Tatsurou

The younger brother of Rinko, and the childhood friend/boyfriend of Yukikaze. Like his sister, his weapon of choice is a katana. He also has the ability to manipulate wind.

  • A Date with Rosie Palms: In several of the bad ending routes and in OVA ending, to videos of his (ex) girlfriend (and sister depending on the ending) being violated.
  • Bishonen: The only consistent trait of his character design.
  • Blinding Bangs: In the manga adaptation, likely given to him due to being The Faceless Supporting Protagonist for the visual novel.
  • Blow You Away: His ninja ability. Unlike most examples, Tatsurou uses his ability to alter his weight, allow his briefly glide in the air. He also manipulate the wind to reduce the a sense of presence, basically no one would hear him move around, like he was the air itself. Tatsurou has stated his abilities best used for stealth than combat.
  • Break the Cutie: Can be a sad victim of the Netorare Genre depending on if the player choose the Downer Ending route. This is played straight in the OVA series and manga adaptation.
  • Brother-Sister Incest: Averted in the first Taimanin Yukikaze. However, this could occur in the second game, depending on the player's choices.
  • Chick Magnet: Yukikaze, Shizuru, and even his own sister, are attracted to him.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: With Yukikaze.
  • Classical Antihero: Doesn't really have much self-confidence in himself, and is noticeable weaker than most of the other major Taimanins. He doesn't even fight anyone during the Action Prologue, something that Yukikaze even berate him for.
  • Darkest Hour: In a few of the possible endings and at the end of the OVA series.
  • Depending on the Artist: He is the only major Taimanin that doesn't have a character sprite. As a result, his physical appearance would often vary depending on adaptation. In the visual novel, he has green eyes, brown hair, and is stated to be taller than his sister. In the OVA series, he has purple hair and eyes, and is shorter than Rinko.
  • Distaff Counterpart: His character design in the OVA series is a younger gender swap version of his sister.
  • H-Game POV Character: Type II;B for the Taimanin Yukikaze series.
  • The Faceless: For most of the visual novel series, subverted in the OVA series. You do see his face at least once in the visual novels during one of Yukikaze's downer ending h-scenes, watching in horror as his girlfriend enjoys sex with the villains.
  • I Have No Son: In the non-canon "Fallen Rinko" route in TY1, he mentally disown his sister after Rinko betrayed him and Yukikaze.
  • The Load: Arguable the weakest Taimanin on this list.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: While he is much more skilled than normal humans, he is nowhere near as strong as his sister or his girlfriend.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Of the two major male Taimanin, he is the "sensitive guy" to Kurou's "Manly Man".
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Depending on the translation, his name could be spelled out as either "Tatsurou" or "Tatsuro".
  • Supporting Protagonist: Many of the advents of Taimanin Yukikaze 1 and 2 are told from his point of view.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Is one for Kyousuke; he has a Childhood Friend Romance with a titular character, the Nice Guy, and a Bishonen in the OVA.

Shiranui MizukiEdit

Shiranui

The mother of Yukikaze. Stated to be a powerful and well respected Taimanin. She disappear 5 years prior to the advents of Taimanin Yukikaze during a mission investigated the brothel, Under Eden, located in the lawless town of Yomihara. Her weapon of choose is a spear and her ninja ability is to manipulate water.

  • Absurdly Youthful Mother: This is somewhat justified since Yukikaze was born as a result of a Teen Pregnancy.
  • Abusive Parents: She was a loving mother to Yukikaze and honorary aunt to the Akiyama siblings, however thanks to Under Eden's conditioning, Shiranui becomes this in TY1. In that state, she would only love Yukikaze and Rinko if they become mind broken slaves like her. In the non-canon route, she is willing to let her's and Yazaki's infant daughter be sold into slavery to be a future Sex Slave when she get older... Yikes!
  • Action Mom: Stated to be almost as strong as Asagi.
  • Babies Ever After: A dark example in the non-canon bad ending when she gives birth to Yazaki's daughter.
  • Blade on a Stick: Her weapon of choice.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: In both Taimanin Yukikaze 1 and 2, as a result of Real's "training".
  • The Brute: To the Under Gang in TY1 seeing as she is the only antagonist in that game with fighting abilities.
  • Dark Mistress: To Yazaki in TY1 and Ryuji in TY2.
  • A Day in the Limelight: In the 5 minute "bonus episode" of the Taimanin Yukikaze OVA.
  • Evil Costume Switch: In Taimanin Yukikaze 2. It's a gimp suit with Wolverine Claws.
  • Face Monster Turn: After being brainwashed and sexually tortured for 5 years by Under Eden and Ryuji, Shiranui become an antagonist in TY1 and TY2.
  • The Ghost: For most the OVA series. She has yet to make a physical appearance outside the opening credits. It wouldn't be until the "bonus" episode would she make an actual appearance.
  • Hair Decorations: Has a large ribbon in her hair that almost makes it look like that she has bunny ears at first glance.
  • Hot Mom: Just look at her.
  • Leotard of Power: Part of her Taimanin outfit. Like daughter, like mother.
  • Like a Son to Me: Treats the Akiyama siblings like they are her own children.
  • Made a Slave: While Shiranui was on a mission at Yomihara, she was capture by Real and the demon, Ryuji Kuroi. For years, Real was tasked with "training" Shiranui, until she became Ryuji's personal slave, for both combat and other...uses. Ryuji occasional "lends" Shiranui to Under Eden, but most of the time she is usually stationed at HijiriOsamu academy.
  • Making a Splash: Her unique ninja to manipulate water. She can even turn her body into water.
  • Missing Mom: Has been missing for 5 year while on a mission at the fictional town of Yomihara.
  • Reforged Into a Minion: Become Under Eden's top enforcer and Yazaki's mistress after being sexually tortured and brainwashed for 5 years.
  • Sex Slave: What became of her during her 5 years disappearance. However, considering she disappeared while investigating a corrupt brothel, who honestly did not see this coming.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: In Taimanin Yukikaze. She only appears for a few scenes in the game, however, she is the reason why Yukikaze and Rinko are investigating the brothel in the first place.
  • Teen Pregnancy: She was apparently 18 years old when she gave birth to Yukikaze.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Her capture/disappearance was the catalyst that caused the advent of Taimanin Yukikaze 1 and 2. This sort of makes her indirectly responsible for all the suffering that Yukikaze, Rinko, Tatsurou, and Shizuru had to endure during the advents of those games.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Unlike in the visual novel, the detail of her disappearance and her fate are not revealed in the OVA series. This is partly subverted in the bonus episode, however her overall fate remains unknown.

She was Asagi's prodigy two years before the event of the third game, and her body had been damaged in battle around that time leaving her limbless.
