Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon is a Japanese anime television series that premiered in October 2020. The show's original creator is Rumiko Takahashi, who also created the famous manga series Inuyasha, and the show is produced by Sunrise. YTV is one of the Canadian networks that airs the show, and it is available in both Japanese and English audio.

The storyline of Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon takes place years after the events of Inuyasha, where the main character's daughter, Moroha, is a bounty hunter. Moroha is a half-demon like her parents, Inuyasha and Kagome, but she also possesses the abilities of her father's enemies, Sesshomaru. Alongside her two cousins, Towa and Setsuna, both daughters of Sesshomaru, they embark on a journey through the Feudal Era to uncover the secrets of their past and defeat the villains.

Towa and Setsuna are twins who were separated at a young age. Towa is taken to the present-day timeline, where she is raised by Kagome's younger brother, Sota. She is now a high school student who reunites with her sister after ten years, who has grown up as a demon-slayer on the other side of the Feudal Era. Both girls have different personalities and goals, but they come together to protect their land and family from a new nemesis, who threatens the balance between humans and demons.

The show's protagonist, Moroha, is a more carefree and cheerful character than her parents. However, she takes her job as a bounty hunter very seriously, and she uses her abilities and gadgets to capture demons and earn a living. Moroha is also shown to have an attachment to her family and is willing to go to great lengths to protect her loved ones. Her philosophy is that it is better to fight and lose than not to fight at all.

Towa, on the other hand, is a more reserved character, who is still trying to adjust to her new environment. She has a higher moral code and suppresses her emotions, which sometimes clashes with Moroha's carefree nature. Towa is still learning how to use her demon abilities, and she is conscious of the fact that she is from the future, which sometimes affects her actions.

Setsuna, the third main character, is a skilled demon-slayer who uses a weapon made of bone that she can manipulate with her demon powers. She is initially shown to have lost her memories of her past, which makes her colder and more distant from her family. However, she is fiercely loyal and compassionate when it comes to protecting her sister and cousins. Setsuna has a complicated relationship with her father, Sesshomaru, who sees her only as a tool.

Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon has many of the elements that made Inuyasha a popular anime series. There are plenty of action scenes, comedic moments, and emotional moments that will keep viewers invested in the story. The show also explores the backstory of beloved characters like Inuyasha, Kagome, and their allies, like Miroku and Sango. The Feudal Era is still a fascinating setting, and the show introduces new demons and characters that have unique designs and personalities.

The animation and art style of the show are top-notch, with plenty of details and vibrant colors that bring the world to life. The soundtrack of the show is also excellent, with a mix of traditional Japanese music and modern rock and pop songs. The voice acting is solid in both languages, with the Japanese cast reprising their roles from Inuyasha, and the English cast featuring some familiar voices from other anime series.

In conclusion, Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon is an enjoyable anime series that will appeal to both old and new Inuyasha fans. The show has a great cast of characters, a compelling storyline, and high production values that make it stand out. The main characters are unique and have distinct personalities that will resonate with viewers. The show balances action, comedy, and drama well, and it manages to expand on the lore of the original series while still being accessible to newcomers.

Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (48 episodes). The series first aired on October 3, 2020.
