Half-demon twins Towa and Setsuna were always together, living happily in Feudal Japan. But their joyous days come to an end when a forest fire separates them and Towa is thrown through a portal to modern-day Japan. There, she is found by Souta Higurashi, who raises her as his daughter after Towa finds herself unable to return to her time.

Ten years later, 14-year-old Towa is a relatively well-adjusted student, despite the fact that she often gets into fights. However, unexpected trouble arrives on her doorstep in the form of three visitors from Feudal Japan; Moroha, a bounty hunter; Setsuna, a demon slayer and Towa's long-lost twin sister; and Mistress Three-Eyes, a demon seeking a mystical object. Working together, the girls defeat their foe, but in the process, Towa discovers to her horror that Setsuna has no memory of her at all. Hanyou no Yashahime: Sengoku Otogizoushi follows the three girls as they endeavor to remedy Setsuna's memory loss, as well as discover the truth about their linked destinies.

I am so glad I gave this anime a chance it quickly has become one of my favorite animes. Inuyasha is one of my favorite and first animes I had started watching when I was younger over 20 years ago so I was glad to see it get a sequel. When I first read what the story would be about I was a little confused but as I started watching it caught my attention and its a story that unravels as the story goes by. What I liked about this story is that it focuses on Inuyasha and Sesshomaru's daughters and the new characters getting ...

Mixed Feelings
Man, this was such an average series. Painfully average. And this coming from someone whose childhood anime viewing experienced started out with Inu-Yasha, being one of the anime that really hooked me in. This was a weak, weak follow up. As with all sequels, I'll assume you know the events of both Inu-Yasha and The Final Act for the purposes of this review.

Story: Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon takes place many, many years after the events of The Final Act. Sesshoumaru now has twin daughters - Towa and Setsuna. When they were young, the forest they were in was burned down ...

Spoilers ahead!

Hanyou no Yashahime: Sengoku Otogizoushi, or more simply, Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon, is in theory, a sequel to Inuyasha (and Final Act, if you're following the anime rather than the manga), set a little less than two decades in the future, and follows the twin daughters of Sesshomaru, and the daughter of Kagome and Inuyasha.


In practice, it feels a lot more like someone's fanfiction. Plot holes abound, and the show barely has even a fraction of the original anime. Enemies are weak, old, beloved characters are practically nonexistent, and why the HELL do we have to have character introduction tags showing up at the ...
