With the announcement of the new season, Rumiko Takahashi, the mangaka behind InuYasha, as well as YashaHime’s character designer, released a statement on “Part II”. She said that the anime had ended in such a complicated situation, that she wonders what will happen next.
As for the anime itself, Ani-ONE Asia is streaming the series via YouTube for Southeast Asia.
Here is how MyAnimeList describes the anime’s story:
Half-demon twins Towa and Setsuna were always together, living happily in Feudal Japan. But their joyous days come to an end when a forest fire separates them and Towa is thrown through a portal to modern-day Japan. There, she is found by Souta Higurashi, who raises her as his daughter after Towa finds herself unable to return to her time.
Ten years later, 14-year-old Towa is a relatively well-adjusted student, despite the fact that she often gets into fights. However, unexpected trouble arrives on her doorstep in the form of three visitors from Feudal Japan; Moroha, a bounty hunter; Setsuna, a demon slayer and Towa’s long-lost twin sister; and Mistress Three-Eyes, a demon seeking a mystical object. Working together, the girls defeat their foe, but in the process, Towa discovers to her horror that Setsuna has no memory of her at all. Hanyou no Yashahime: Sengoku Otogizoushi follows the three girls as they endeavor to remedy Setsuna’s memory loss, as well as discover the truth about their linked destinies.
Unfortunately, the staff did not reveal much details about the second season yet. Expect them to announce more details in the days to come.
