Viz Media has announced that Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon, a sequel anime to Inuyasha, is in production. The anime series stars Towa Higurashi and Setsuna, the twin daughters of Sesshomaru, as well as Moroha, the daughter of Inuyasha and Kagome. Rumiko Takahashi, the creator of the Inuyasha manga, returns to provide the main character designs.
Viz Media describes the upcoming anime as follows:
The daughters of Sesshomaru and Inuyasha set out on a journey transcending time!
In Feudal Japan, Half-Demon twins Towa and Setsuna are separated from each other during a forest fire. While desperately searching for her younger sister, Towa wanders into a mysterious tunnel that sends her into present-day Japan, where she is found and raised by Kagome Higurashi’s brother, Sota, and his family.
Ten years later, the tunnel that connects the two eras has reopened, allowing Towa to be reunited with Setsuna, who is now a Demon Slayer working for Kohaku. But to Towa’s shock, Setsuna appears to have lost all memories of her older sister.
Joined by Moroha, the daughter of Inuyasha and Kagome, the three young women travel between the two eras on an adventure to regain their missing past.
Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon is produced by Sunrise and directed by Teruo Sato. Kaoru Wada composes the music and Yoshihito Hishinuma adapts Takahashi’s character designs for the anime. Katsuyuki Sumisawa returns and is in charge of the series composition.
You can check out the character designs for the three main characters below.
Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon is scheduled to begin broadcasting in Fall 2020. You can check out its official website HERE.
