Taimanin Yukikaze

Taimanin Yukikaze (対魔忍ユキカゼ, Official Homepage) by Black Lilith follows the misadventures of two taimanin (‘anti-demon ninjas’) as they take an assignment to impersonate prostitutes, but ultimately succumb to the training. It’s focused particularly on one of the taimanin, Yukikaze.

It’s got a pretty high amount of CG, as well as ‘fake animation’–I mean that it will quickly cycle two images to give the appearance of animation (e.g. penis in, penis out). It’s a poor substitute, and it was a little annoying, to be honest. I generally prefer animation-free VNs, though, since the animations are generally much lower-quality than the still images, and I’d rather have high-quality still images than low-quality animation.

But enough of that.

The plot, as is pretty common, is just an excuse for Yukikaze to undergo sexual ‘training’, which consumes the bulk of the (short) story. It wasn’t precisely my cup of tea, but if you like to see the heroines broken and forced to be addicted to sexual pleasure, this VN may be right up your alley.

The artwork is fairly good:

“But wait,” you say, “weren’t there two taimanin? There are two on the cover.” There are, but you’d scarcely know it. The other, Rinko, is pretty much nowhere in the game–more on that in a minute. From the moment I saw Yukikaze’s sprite, I didn’t particularly care for her character design, but I figured that I liked Rinko a bit better (unrealistically large breasts aside), so it’d be worth a shot. So, I dutifully played through the game, seeing CG after CG featuring Yukikaze, but not a whisper of Rinko. Not even on subsequent play-throughs, as I tried the other options. There should, I thought, have been plenty–the game’s website isn’t shy of showing them.

They even have CG featuring both Rinko and Yukikaze.

Hmm. But what’s with the black bars? Well, it’s the answer to the missing CG, in fact. A point in the story in one of the endings (or perhaps more, but I gave up before getting them all) is that the two taimanin are being recorded and the images put up on a website. When you’ve completed the game, a menu option opens on the title screen to view this (in-game) website, where you can find Rinko’s CG.

Disappointing.

Well, my conclusion: the art is fairly good, and they certainly don’t make you work for the CG, so if you like the look of Yukikaze or the sound of the story (or both), then you might like Taimanin Yukikaze. And if you like Rinko and don’t mind going through the game to unlock her CG, you might find it worthwhile, too. For me, though, it was just another nukige, and one that committed the sin of failing to meet my (already low) expectations. It’s also got a bit of a netorare element to it, which I don’t especially care for, but, again, if you like that sort of thing…

Well, it is what it is.

Update: This game makes it seem like your choices don’t matter much (and they don’t), but there are several endings. For those who don’t want to puzzle out what to do to get the ‘good’ ending (or the others), here’s a walkthrough for Taimanin Yukikaze. It’s in Japanese, but it should be pretty obvious what you’re meant to do. Any queries may be posted in the comments here.

Update redux: There’s now a Taimanin Yukikaze anime! Follow the link for details.

Links and Extras

Sexual Content

Incest

Type: Blood-related Brother/Sister, Blood-related Mother/Daughter

This one just barely qualifies. The protagonist, Tatsurou, never actually has sex with his sister, Rinko. Actually, he never has sex with anyone. However, Rinko does have some scenes in a special section after the story is over, and in one bad ending Tatsurou prepares to masturbate while watching a video of his sister having sex, as the scene ends. Also, in the extras are scenes with Yukikaze and her mother, giving a guy a double blowjob.

Netorare

Tatsurou’s older sister, Rinko, and his childhood friend (and love interest), Yukikaze, are stolen from him. In the (bad) end, they don’t care about anything but sex—and Tatsurou watches the porn they made, which proves it.

Tentacles

Type: Rape

There’s a single scene in which Rinko is raped by some tentacles, though it’s all just a simulation, in reality.

    […] was looking through some releases on getchu, when what should I see but a Taimanin Yukikaze hentai anime! It was released by ZIZ on 2013-11-29, so I’m a bit late to the […]

    Hi, I don’t know if or when you’ll see this comment. However, I’m working on a project that involves the Taimanin series and I want to get more insight on what happens in the endings, particularly the one where Yuki’s mother, Shiranui, appears with her.

    • David Wood Says:

      I’d love to help you, but frankly this was a VN I read more than three years ago and wasn’t terribly impressed with, so I don’t really remember the details. Sorry I can’t be more helpful.

      • Maxwell Says:

        Shiranui shows up to stop either Rinko or Tatsuro (or both) from killing their older brother who turns out to be the one who masterminded the entire situation. The exception to this being the scenario in which Rinko, and not Shiranui, foils Tatsuro and knocks him out after telling him to “respect her feelings (as a sex-addicted trollop)”.

        Beyond that, Shiranui stars in an online streaming video with Yukikaze that’s directed at Tatsuro. In it, they basically encourage him to masturbate all the time and watch them have sex with his older brother with the finale being them telling him “Sayonara” while scarfing down big bro’s dick and holding up the peace sign (the CG up above).

        From what I can tell, there is no “good” ending. No matter what you do, Rinko and Yukikaze end up obsessed with their own “Mesu-Buta” (Sow) self-images and addicted to sexually servicing their captors and sending fap material to Tatsuro…..which is fine. He’s a pussy anyway.

        The game was underwhelming when I first came out, but I gave the more recent Animation version a shot and it actually made all the difference. The sound FX also helped as well–something that Lilith REFUSES to put more effort into, and that’s exactly what keeps them from being highest-rated into terms of eroge.

        Also, I wanted to point out that their character models are very similar to the ones seen in Witches and Tentacles ala Lilith Mist. I believe this game was Black Lilith’s nod to that game.

      • Kuroryu Says:

        So, the head bad guy is the Akiyama siblings’ elder brother? Well, that’s a shock. And this further supports my theory that they were brainwashed and so was Shiranui. You know, I don’t even like this kind of stuff and here I am trying to research for the sake of fanfic stuffs.
