The manga series InuYasha gave rise to the popular eponymous anime that won over Japanese audiences with its showing between 2000 and 2004, but to this day it draws crowds of fans around the world.
A sequel was recently announced and, according to new information provided by the official animation websites, Hanyo no Yashahime should be aired later this year by Yomiuri Tv and Nippon Televison.
Check out the announcement:
“Hanyou’s broadcast station at Yashahime, the broadcast schedule and broadcast day have been decided: The broadcast starts on Saturday nights at 5:30 on Yomiuri Television and Nippon Television!”
The new anime, whose name translates to Portuguese as “The Half-Demon Princess”, will be a spin-off focused on the twin daughters of Sessh? Maru, called Towa and Setsuna, and Inuyasha’s daughter, Moroha.
Rumiko Takahashi, author of InuYasha, helped design the main characters, but is not involved in the story or writing of the script.
The forecast points out that Hanyou no Yashahime will start airing in October this year, but the official date has not yet been announced.
More news should be released soon.
