Hanyou no Yashahime Synopsis

Sesshomaru and Inuyasha's daughters embark on an adventure that transcends time! In feudal Japan, the half-demon twins Towa and Setsuna are separated during a forest fire. In a desperate search for her younger sister, Towa comes across a mysterious tunnel that takes her to modern Japan, where she is found and placed in the care of Kagome Higurashi's brother Sota and his family.

Ten years later, the tunnel that connects the two eras will be reopened so that Towa can return to Setsuna, who has now become a youkai assassin with Kohaku. But the worst part is that Setsuna seems to have lost her memories and no longer recognizes Towa. In collaboration with Moroha, Inuyasha's daughter and Kagome, the three travel between two eras on an adventure to regain a forgotten past.
