It has been over ten years since the Inuyasha anime came to a conclusion a couple of years after the original manga wrapped up and it looks like fans of the franchise can now look forward to a sequel as it has been announced, and confirmed by Viz Media, that a sequel series is in the works by the name of Yashahime: Princess Half Demon and is currently slated to air sometime this fall season with Viz handling the series’ debut in the West.
Yashahime: Princess Half Demon is described by Viz as following the daughters of both Sesshomaru and Inuyasha as they set out on a journey that transcends 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.
