It was first reported back in May that the massively popular fantasy adventure manga/anime series Inuyasha will be getting a spin-off anime series titled Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon. Not much was known then aside from that the spin-off will focus on the children of the original series’ main characters, Inuyasha, Kagome, and Inuyasha’s brother Sesshomaru.
Now, Viz Media has uploaded the first full trailer of the upcoming anime, complete with English subtitles. Through the trailer, we get a better understanding of our main characters, twins Higurashi Towa and Setsuna, both daughters of Sesshomaru, and Moroha, daughter of Inuyasha and Kagome.
A new visual for the anime was also released, which features not only our three main characters, but a man that seems to be the child of Miroku and Sango who has followed in the footsteps of her mother and is now a Demon Hunter as well. In the distance, we see two familiar characters, Inuyasha and Sesshomaru.
Though it is not sure how these brothers will be involved in the sequel, seeing as their daughters will be the ones taking centre stage this time, it is definitely enough to excite long time fans of the series.
Here is the official description of the anime series according to Viz Media,
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.
Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon is set to premiere on 3 October 2020 in Japan.
