Yashahime Synopsis: Princess Half-Demon

Sesshomaru and Inuyasha’s daughters set off on an adventure that transcends time!

In Feudal Japan, the half-demon twins Towa and Setsuna are separated during a forest fire. While desperately searching for her younger sister, Towa finds a mysterious tunnel that transports her to modern Japan, where she is found and placed in the care of Kagome Higurashi’s brother, Sota and her family.

Ten years later, the tunnel connecting the two eras is reopened, allowing Towa to rejoin Setsuna, who has now become a Youkai Killer in conjunction with Kohaku. But the worst thing is that Setsuna seems to have lost her memories and no longer recognizes Towa.

Now joining Moroha, Inuyasha’s daughter, and Kagome, the three of them will travel between two eras in an adventure to recover a forgotten past.
