The Japanese portal Mantan Web published an article with an interview with the director of the original anime Hanyou no Yashahime: Sengoku Otogizoushi ((Yashahime: Princess half-demon), Teruo Satouwhere he highlighted some details about the production of the series. «Creating a new series for the Inuyasha franchise was a lot of pressure for us, but it was done wonderfully.. The production team loves the characters and we hope fans like the three princesses too.", he showed.
Hanyou no Yashahime: Sengoku Otohizoushi is a story written by the direct descendants of the protagonists of the multimedia franchise Inuyasha. Sesshomarus twin daughters, After WA and Setsuna;; as well as Kagome and Inuyasha's daughter, Moroha. The author Rumiko Takahashi made the original character designs while Katsuyuki Sumisawa ((Happy ucky happy Bikkuriman, InuYasha: Kanketsu hen) is responsible for the composition of the series, ie for writing the story and preparing the scripts. According to the director, one of the most difficult challenges is "How do I reintroduce the original Inuyasha characters?».
«I don't want to give away the expectations of fans of the original franchiseSo I wonder what kind and when it would be appropriate to introduce the characters again. Will they take it well or badly? We are very careful about the direction the story will go and of course we will confirm our suggestion with Rumiko-sensei as well to get his approval on the stage"Said the director.
So far, the story has evolved with the three protagonists roaming the world alone. This was reported on social networks with messages like «Why don't Inuyasha or Sesshomaru take care of their daughters?». The director stated: «Only now did they decide to uncover the "secret" behind the birth of the twins.».
«Although Sumisawa-san is responsible for composing the series, she seems to have stretched and mixed up expectations for a long time.. Since we don't have a base story this time around, everyone worries about the future of this story, especially if it isn't understood and we feel overwhelmed. On the other hand, we can't give a lot of information about it either, as this is also an advantage if you're an original work and you're holding back. Now that we've finally "planted the seeds," viewers can see them gradually bloom into beautiful flowers. So wait for it.", He concluded.
