The Plot: Inuyasha Sequel Yashahime

Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon takes place 18 years after the events of Inuyasha: The Final Act, the anime adaptation of the last arc of the manga. The story focuses on three young girls who are connected by blood and destiny.

Towa Higurashi: The elder twin daughter of Sesshomaru and Rin. She is a half-demon who was separated from her sister at the age of four during a forest fire.

She was transported to the modern era, where she was adopted by Kagome’s brother Sota and his wife Moe. She grew up as a tomboy who learned martial arts and swordsmanship. She is loyal, brave and compassionate, but also impulsive and reckless.

Setsuna: The younger twin daughter of Sesshomaru and Rin. She is a half-demon who stayed in the feudal era after being separated from her sister. She became a demon slayer under the guidance of Kohaku, Sango’s brother.

She has no memories of her past, as they were stolen by a mysterious Dream Butterfly. She is cold, aloof and pragmatic, but also skilled and determined.

Moroha: The only daughter of Inuyasha and Kagome. She is a quarter-demon who inherited her father’s dog ears and her mother’s spiritual powers. She works as a bounty hunter who slays demons for money.

She has never met her parents, as they were sealed away by a powerful enemy when she was a baby. She is cheerful, adventurous and confident, but also greedy and careless.

The three girls embark on a journey across time and space to recover their lost memories, reunite with their parents and face the threats that lurk in the shadows.
