VIZ Media Announces Broadcast Partners for the Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon Anime

VIZ Media, the leading pop culture publisher and producer of Japanese manga and animation in North America has announced that Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon is coming to Crunchyroll, FUNimation Entertainment, 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.

10 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.

    Do you think the original English dub cast will return to reprise their roles?? Richard Ian Cox as InuYasha? Kelly Sheridan as Sango? Kirby Morrow as Miroku? Moneca Stori or Kira Tozer as Kagome?

      Considering that FUNimation was able to get most of the original English dub actors back for the Fruits Basket reboot, I’d day that anything is possible. 🙂

        Well for as far as I researched, Moneca Stori is officially retired so Kira Tozer is all we got, as I sure hope Richard Ian Cox, Kirby Morrow, Kelly Sheridan and etc do get a second chance to get in this.
