Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon already has InuYasha fans stoked for a spin-off of the beloved Rumiko Takahashi series, and now we have more info on the music within it. According to a tweet from the series’ official Japanese Twitter account, J-Pop group SixTONES—who previously performed the opening theme for The Millionaire Detective — Balance: UNLIMITED anime—are aboard for the Yashahime OP.
The theme song is appropriately titled “NEW ERA,” and we’ll get to hear it in action when Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon kicks off on October 3.

Uru is on the anime’s ending theme, “Break.”
VIZ sums up the series:
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.
