“Hanyo no Yasha Hime” (“Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon”), will begin its broadcast run today via Yomiuri TV and Nippon TV, and will air every Saturday at 17:30 JST / 16:30 SGT. A special message video from Sara Matsumoto, who plays Towa Higurashi in the show, can be seen below.
“Hanyo no Yasha Hime” will feature character designs by Takahashi-sensei and animated by the same production team as the “Inuyasha” TV anime. The sequel will feature the daughters of half-brothers Inuyasha and Sesshomaru from “Inuyasha”: Sesshomaru’s twin daughters Towa and Setsuna, and Inuyasha and Kagome’s daughter named Moroha.
The official English blurb reads:
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.
