Taimanin Yukikaze 1: Trial is a lewd visual novel about a special task force of ninjas and evil crime bosses.

A basic visual novel lacking in player agency. There are no decisions to make, other than "advance dialogue". This "game" is not a game; rather it is more like an eBook.

Akiyama Tatsurou is a member of an elite ninja task force called Taimanin. They are responsible for beating back the dark side, a collection of demons and human criminals. He fights beside his sister Akiyama Rinko and his childhood friend, Mizuki Yukikaze. That is, until they would be seperated by an undercover mission that may very well rob his companions of life or worse.

To read the full length "Story", check this review out on Wombat Trap (dot-com).

I found the titlescreen attractive, though seemingly off-centered. From the "Menu" button, you may a variety of audio, display, graphical, and language preferences. You may review unlocked CGs from the "Gallery", accessible from the main menu and from within the "Menu" dialogue. The application cannot be fullscreened from the titlescreen; you must hit the appropriate key from in-game. Anytime you bring up the "Menu" menu, the application will break fullscreen. Though the application can be fullscreened, the actual game is rendered in a 4:3 aspect ratio.

- The Goods -
There are strong sexual themes that occur between the protagonists. One of the characters has a see-through outfit, but there is no full nudity or uncensored sexual content. Expect male-on-female sexual themes.

I definitely recommend this game. Though the English leaves something to be desired, I found myself interested in the male lead and his love interest — this is abnormal. The game ends abruptly, but it's important to note that this software is a free trial. You can't go wrong with free, and this if this visual novel seems to be a great entry point into the Taimanin Yukikaze universe.
