Inuyasha Spin-Off Anime Yashahime Lines Up Japanese Networks


One of this year’s biggest projects is Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon, the upcoming spinoff anime of Rumiko Takahashi’s Inuyasha. The show was previously announced for fall, and the latest update from the official Twitter lines it up with some Japanese networks.

Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon will air in Japan every Saturday at 5:30pm Japan Time on the Yomiuri TV/Nihon TV network.

Inuyasha the Final Act director Teruo Sato (Aikatsu Stars!) is at the helm for this one, with Katsuyuki Sumisawa (Gundam Wing, Naruto) on series composition for the Sunrise production.

Here’s how VIZ Media describes the story:

In Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon, the daughters of Sesshomaru and Inuyasha set out on a journey transcending time. Set 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.
