‘Inuyasha’ sequel anime ‘Hanyo no Yasha Hime’ announced


A sequel anime series for Rumiko Takahashi’s popular manga and anime ‘Inuyasha’ was announced on Saturday.

The new project, titled Hanyou no Yashashime: Sengoku Otogizoushi is slated for release Fall 2020. A teaser visual was also released on the newly opened website, hanyo-yashahime.com.


Viz Media describes the story as follows:

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.

Inuyasha episode director Teruo Sato is set to direct the new series while the original creator Rumiko Takahashi will be in-charge of the character design.
