Action Taimanin is an addictive free-to-play 3D action-adventure role-playing video game developed and released by Gremory Games for mobile, later ported to Windows mobile platforms by Lilith and then later to PC by Z-game. It is an RPG (role-playing video game) that follows the storyline of the anime series, Tokyo Ghoul.
The story revolves around three young teens who are seeking knowledge and power to help them on their quests. They have been summoned to a town called Axis by their Sensei, who wishes to test their fighting skills.
The story begins in the month of November, when we see our protagonist, Igawa Asagi, as he prepares for his first day at college. He had heard that another student called Kouki Arita went out with a mysterious stranger. He also saw a certain someone lurking inside a bookstore, and decided to follow him there. But soon enough he gets discovered by demons.
This is where the story starts. For those who are unaware, Action Taimanin: Hyboru High-lar is a type of visual novels. It is a crossover between the manga version and the anime version. In the case of the latter, the crossover is because the former is inspired by the Japanese animation cartoon version.
So if you’ve ever seen the anime version, it’s pretty much the same, except that the animations were changed to give a more cartoony effect.
Based off of the manga version, the PC port is pretty much like the manga itself. Action Taimanin Asagi has the same battle scenes as the visual novel. The only difference is that you have to play the game using the keyboard and mouse as opposed to a controller.
Asagi is a high school student who prefers to have his way with girls. The story begins when he sees a girl, Sayuri, who is being forced by her classmates to kiss a boy on the first date. Miki Himeko is the girl that is forcing Sayuri to do it, but she soon realizes that she can not do it without help.
She is soon joined by Misono, a transfer student from Tokyo who has been invited to join the sports club. They soon come across an “icyclical beauty” named Mizuki Yama. Asami finds herself drawn into Mizuki, so will they all be saved.
Action Taimanin Asagi follows the story of the four boys who form the main cast. Masane Amaha is the female lead and is shown to be slightly more confident and skilled than her male counterparts. Ayumitsuji Aima is the strongest of the bunch, but is also the oldest, while Hidehiko Honda is the quietest. Misono is also a newcomer, although he quickly proves himself to be strong-willed and intelligent.
The PC port of Action Taimanin Asagi follows a more traditional role-playing format than the visual novel. For starters, you will have a map that shows your current position. The objective of the game is still the same as in the visual novel: clear the path to hell using your skills and abilities.
This time, your mission is to clear the pathway of the ” demons” to take back control of the human world. Although the overall concept and storyline are the same as the visual novel, it doesn’t mean that you need to know both to enjoy the game.
Overall, Action Taimanin Asagi is a fun game to play, especially if you have played the original version of the game. It contains similar elements to the visual novel such as hidden objects and mythology. The PC port, however, adds an extra element by allowing you to control your characters more effectively.
You can change their skills and attributes at any time, so you won’t ever get stuck. That, along with the enjoyable storyline, makes Action Taimanin Asagi a top seller on the online download market!
