More of an all star version than a sequel to Taimanin Asagi 3. It is a massive crossover with characters from multiple games. The character cards can be won in a gacha or by points in events. Most cards are hypothetical "what if" captures and unlock their true power by a mechanic called "discipline", which also unlocks a Harem Scene. The main protagonist of TABA is Fuuma Kotaro.
Taimanin Asagi Battle Arena takes place instead of the events of Taimanin Asagi 3, in an alternative timeline.
Fuuma Kotaro has given up on Gosha Village and the Taimanin. As heir to the Fuuma clan he wants to insert himself into the power struggle between the three major forces (Taimanin, UFS and Demons) and gain supremacy over all of them, to rebuild his fallen clan. At the start, Kotaro and his loyal servant Fuuma Tokiko are all that remains of the clan.
Kotaro's Ninja Art is the ability to steal the special powers and techniques of those he touches; a method he uses to gain advantage over his opponents, most of whom are considerably stronger than him; building a stronger New Fuuma Clan. His chief method of strengthening his forces is to capture his female enemies, and force them to become loyal to him through means of (mostly sexual) violation, torture, degradation, or overwhelming pleasure until the subject becomes so addled (Or 'Mind Broken') that they'll do anything he asks.
Most of the plot is told in limited-time events, outside of the core chapters of the game, where he is joined by younger versions of Sakura and Murasaki from another dimension, and the more comical Lilim and Minasaki a pair of mischievous succubi Demons.
Tokiko informs Kotaro that work has been completed on the New Fuuma Clan Headquarters. To start, they are the only clan members left, after a failed coup against the Taimanin, lead by Fuuma Danjou, his father, who fled to the UFS.
Tokiko suggests three possible targets to enhance their strength and weaken the enemy, one from each major faction: Ingrid, Sakura or Asuka. Regardless of the player's choice, none of them are canonically captured, as they all appear in future events working with their respective factions, with no reference made to their supposed subjugation..
