We wrote about the upcoming spin-off to Inuyasha and everything that comes with that coming out of Viz Media. The fall season is coming upon us quickly and what we all want to know is where can we see the show. Well, we finally have our answer just announced today by Viz!!
VIZ Media, the leading pop culture publisher and producer of Japanese manga and animation in North America announced Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon is coming to Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Hulu on October 3, 2020. The Inuyasha-inspired anime will be available for simulcast in North and Latin American territories subtitled, with the English dub to follow shortly after.
Brad Woods, VIZ Media CMO, said: “We can’t wait for both Inuyasha and anime fans of all ages to discover the spirit of adventure and friendship in ‘Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon,’ which will be coming to Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Hulu this October. By partnering with multiple platforms, the iconic and much-loved property will have tremendous reach and availability for fans to enjoy this next chapter with half-demon twins Towa and Setsuna.”
Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon follows the daughters of Sesshomaru and Inuyasha as they set out on a journey transcending time. Set 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.
Confirmed voice cast: Sara Matsumoto as Towa Higurashi, Mikako Komatsu as Setsuna, and Azusa Tadokoro as the voice of Moroha.
Matsumoto-san’s most notable roll thus far is Namida Suzumeno from Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. She’s still new to the voice over scene. Komatsu-san is a veteran with her most notable roles being: Marika Kato from Bodacious Space Pirates, Lupisregina Beta from Overlord, Popuko from Pop Team Epic, and Momoko Togame from Magia Record: Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story, and Minami in the upcoming EX-ARM. Tadokoro-san with 25 roles to date most notable being: Astaroth from Seven Mortal Sins, and Pipimi from Pop Team Epic.
We’re looking forward to seeing the offspring of some of the greatest characters in Inuyasha!!
