Towa, Moroha, and Setsuna are returning this fall with Yashahime: Princess Half Demon – The Second Act. A new trailer and key visual art has been released on the official Yashahime and Viz. Media’s Twitter account for the second installment of Princess Half Demon sequel releasing sometime later this year.
Viz Media describes,
“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.”
Studio Sunrise’s Yashahime: Princess Half Demon originally debuted with a lot of hype but couldn’t keep up the fame of its descendent Inuyasha. Nonetheless, the show managed to fetch a slot on Adult Swim and a second season. Yashahime continues the legacy of Rumiko Takahashi’s Inuyasha. Sesshomaru’s twin daughters Towa and Setsuna and Inuyasha’s daughter Moroha set out to discover the secrets behind their missing parents. They are on their adventurous journey to defeat the threat of terrorizing their family.
With the new trailer dropped fans can look forward to the upcoming season with the original voice cast and new characters further expanding the magical world. The image released suggests the descent return of Sesshomaru, Inuyasha, and Kagome who rarely appeared through the events of the first season. Fans of the original series should expect the original characters to be given comparatively larger screen time this season while the trio will try to move on their injuries.
Inuyasha is quite a hyped franchise of its time with 167 anime episodes and feature films which explore a vastly different supernatural world where demons and demon slayers exist.
The anime will be available on Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Hulu after streaming on Yomiuri TV from October 2nd onwards.
