Fans of the popular anime series ‘Inuyasha‘ got some good news when it was announced that Viz Media formally announced a new spin-off of the show titled ‘Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon.’
Japanese company Sunrise Inc, who animated the original series, is returning with manga series creator Rumiko Takahashi and episode director Teru Sato of Inuyasha, according to Crunchyroll. They added that writer Katsuyuki Sumisawa, who wrote Naruto the Movie: Ninja Clash in the Land of Snow, will work on the screenplay.
Viz Media released the official synopsis,
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.
Takahashi added, “The three heroines are beautifully designed. I am looking forward to their adventures.”
