“Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon” is a follow-up anime series to the massively popular drama “Inuyasha,” which ran from 2000 to 2004. The program follows the twin daughters of “Inuyasha” characters Sesshomaru and Rin, Towa and Setsuna, as well as Moroha, the daughter of Inuyasha and Kagome.
After being separated involuntarily at the age of four, the twins are reunited years later, but with a twist. While Setsuna stayed on their homeworld, Towa is transferred to the contemporary age alone, and Setsuna matures into a tough demon slayer who has lost her memory. Simultaneously, an adolescent Moroha has no recollection of her family or upbringing.
- Industry Season 2: Is There Going To Be The Next Season In 2022?
“Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon” followed in October 2020 with a 24-episode first season, and a second season was announced shortly after Season 1 ended. Taking on a fan-favorite franchise such as “Inuyasha” is no simple task, and many fans have expressed their dissatisfaction with the new series, with the Anime News Network even labeling it one of the worst anime of winter 2021.
However, “Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon” is not yet finished, and many anticipate that the show’s second season would turn things around and establish the show’s own distinct identity.
The following is what we currently know about “Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon” Season 2.
What Characters Will Appear In The Sequel To Yashahime: Princess Half-demon (Cast)?
As with Season 1, the upcoming episodes of “Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon” will focus on Towa and Setsuna, the half-demon twins, and Inuyasha’s daughter Moroha. Towa is performed by Sara Matsumoto, a rising voice actor who has previously worked on “My Hero Academia” and “Boruto: Naruto Next Generations,” while Setsuna is dubbed by Mikako Komatsu, a veteran of the industry who has been in films such as “Jujutsu Kaisen,” “Ajin,” and “The Garden of Words.” Moroha is voiced by Azusa Tadokoro, who you may recognize from anime projects like “Aikatsu!” and “Violet Evergarden.”
The young women’s parents also appear, which means that longstanding franchise fans will get to see Inuyasha, Kagome, Sesshomaru, and Rin once more. Shippo, another popular character from the original anime, also appears in the sequel series. When Towa and Setsuna rejoin after a decade apart, Towa discovers her sister working for a demon-slayer named Kohaku alongside her teammate Hisui, two characters that are featured in “Inuyasha” but play a significant role here as well. Because the show has numerous strong ties to “Inuyasha,” there are numerous other familiar characters from the first series who either play a significant role in “Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon” or simply make an appearance, such as Sango, Kohaku’s older sister and Hisui’s mother, and Miroku, her husband.
For fans of the new series or those who simply miss the characters and universe of “Inuyasha,” the new season of “Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon” episodes is nearing completion. Season 2 is scheduled to premiere on October 2, 2021, and will be available on Crunchyroll, FUNimation, and Hulu. The first season aired on Toonami with an English dub shortly after the original episodes aired, although it is unknown whether or not the second season will follow suit.
The second season is officially titled “Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon – The Second Act,” and it will pick up where the first season ended.
Season 2 of “Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon” will premiere in October 2021, competing with a slew of other anime, including Season 1 of both “The World’s Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in Another World as an Aristocrat” and “Shakugan,” as well as the fourth season of “Date A Live” (Otakukart).
What will be the subject of Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon Part 2?
According to the story of “Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon,” twin sisters Towa and Setsuna are separated at a young age due to a forest fire, with Towa ending up in modern Japan and Setsuna remaining in feudal Japan. After ten years apart, the two are reunited, but Setsuna strangely has no memory of her past, having spent her days as a demon-slayer. Adding Moroha to the mix, she suffers from a similar instance of memory loss, and thus “the three young ladies go on an odyssey between the two eras in search of their lost past,” as detailed in the series’ official synopsis.
Season 1 of “Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon” ends on a dramatic cliffhanger, with Towa, Setsuna, and Moroha facing off against Kirinmaru, the Demon Beast King. The struggle is fierce, and while Setsuna manages to land a hit on Kirinmaru, he immediately strikes her down, apparently killing her. However, is she truly deceased? Probably not, given the program’s history, and the show teases her possible return in Season 2. Towa and Moroha, on the other hand, gain greater control over their talents and engage in major combat, but they are unable to vanquish Kirinmaru in the end. Meanwhile, Inuyasha, Kagome, and Rin remain confined, with Sesshomaru most likely to blame.
