Inuyasha is an animated series originally serialized in Japan from 2000 to 2004, which was followed by the series Inuyasha: The Final Act, transmitted from 2009 to 2010. The story tells the deeds of a half man and half dog demon who wanders in Japan medieval alongside a young woman who came from our present.
Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon will tell what happens in the same context as the original story a few years after its end, focusing on the twin daughters of the character Sesshomaru and the daughter of Inuyasha and Kagome.
