Broadcast timing has officially been set for the Yashahime anime. When the first season of Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon wrapped up its run last month, a “Chapter 2” continuation was revealed. While there weren’t any details beyond that, the latest news has it eyeing a Fall 2021 premiere.
Beyond that, this announcement is still pretty light on information, with more to be revealed later in a follow-up report. For now, go ahead and pencil in more Yashahime anime fun for this fall.
VIZ Media licensed the Yashahime anime for streaming and home video, and the first season ran on Crunchyroll and Funimation as it aired in Japan. Here’s how VIZ sums it up:
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.
