When and How to Watch 'Yashahime: Princess Half Demon,' the Sequel to 'Inuyasha'

The fall 2020 anime season is heating up, with news that fans will be brought back to the world of Inuyasha with Yashahime: Princess Half Demon.

Years after the end of the beloved Inuyasha series, Yashahime will introduce fans to the children of Inuyasha, Kagome and Sesshomaru. Here's the official synopsis of the new anime, followed by the trailer to give more context as to what the Inuyasha sequel will entail:

"The anime stars Towa and Setsuna, the twin daughters of Sesshomaru who get separated in a forest fire. Towa ends up in modern times and is raised by Sota Higurashi, Kagome's little brother. Ten years later, they are reunited, but Setsuna is a demon slayer with no memories of her sister. Joined by Moroha, Inuyasha and Kagome's daughter, they set off on an adventure to regain their missing past."
