Inuyasha: Hanyo no Yashahime

In Feudal Japan, Half-Demon twins Towa and Setsuna are separated from each other during a forest fire. While desperately searching for her younger sister, Towa wanders into a mysterious tunnel that sends her into present-day Japan, where she is found and raised by Kagome Higurashi's brother, Sota, and his family.

Ten years later, the tunnel that connects the two eras has reopened, allowing Towa to be reunited with Setsuna, who is now a Demon Slayer working for Kohaku. But to Towa's shock, Setsuna appears to have lost all memories of her older sister.

Joined by Moroha, the daughter of Inuyasha and Kagome, the three young women travel between the two eras on an adventure to regain their missing past.

Towa


Setsuna


Moroha

...

Spoiler: show
At the end of the original, Inu-Yasha became a human, so his daughter is a full human. But if Towa and Setsuna are hanyou, that likely means they're the kids of Sesshoumaru and...Rin.

This information is upsetting a lot of people but I love it.

Wait, what? I just finished re-watching Inuyasha for the nth time just a few months ago and this definitely didn't happen. The epilogue of the manga concurs. I'm looking at the very last panel right now.

At any rate, this is cool as hell and I'm super excited about it.

Really? Well, I'm wrong then! I had no personal knowledge and just inferred it from this series' plot summary.

This was the perfect time for it. Shogakukan is lacking for a big-name anime and historical Japanese stories with youkai/oni are popular again thanks to Kimetsu no Yaiba.

I also like the fact that there's only all girls...no opportunity for dumb shipping wars.

I think you severely underestimate people's ability and desire to ship.

Some spoilers, not spoilers I would recommend reading if you're emotionally invested in this.

Spoiler: show
Inuyasha and Sesshomaru were killed in battle against one of Sesshomaru's great enemies. It was this battle that separated Towa and Setsuna.

First episode is basically a continuation of the last anime. It's great and retro!

So it looks like none of the characters know their relationship to one another.

-Souta doesn't know Towa is the half-niece of his brother-in-law
-Setsuna doesn't know Towa is her sister
-Moroha doesn't know Towa/Setsuna are her cousins or that Souta is her uncle
-None of the girls know their parents

On paper, Towa seems to be the most powerful of the three. She's lived in the most nutrition-rich era and also had a modern training regimen. She's heavily muscled and has a broad chest.

Moroha is next in strength. Physically I think she's the weakest as she's only 1/4 demon, but she also has the ability to fire magic arrows like Kagome. Unfortunately her only arrow is the "Sealing Arrow" which is weaker than the demon-killing "Purification Arrow".

Setsuna looks like the weakest. She's relying on her Demon Hunter training and isn't even a match for Moroha.

Sad!

I'm a bit disappointed that everyone figured everything out (or most of the puzzle, anyway) so quickly, but that's how it rolls, I guess.

As expected, Towa is a beast in battle. And Having 3 magical girls will make the series more bearable than when Kagome was around and useless.

HNNNNG, all the girls in this are major daughterfus. If my nutbladder didn't burst decades ago it would certainly burst twice watching this show. No, the ghost of my nutbladder probably exploded into particulates of ectoplasma just watching this episode alone.

Moroha is really cute. Towa is like the ideal tomboy wife. Setsuna...well, she's stoic. It would be nice to see her gradually lose that hardened edge.

The Higurashi family was so loving and welcoming it's a little offputting that the girls even considered going back to the Sengoku Era. Who would want to go back to that dirty, smelly, dangerous place?

Episode 5 is the first "bad" episode that feels like classic Inuyasha. I'm not a fan, I want back to the earlier storytelling style.

This episode was a LOT better and was way more modern in direction than the last. It also revealed a lot...namely, that Towa has Inuyasha's ability to just slay demons without killing humans.

Interestingly, it's triggered by the Silver Pearl in her eye. Which has me wonder, are the pearls actually Tessaiga and Tensaiga in jewel form?

Does it matter if I've seen Inuyasha The Final Act or no? Like I watched all the show prior to that, but that was forever ago an when they finally got around to ending it properly I didn't feel invested enough ta check it out. Pretty interested in giving this new series a try however.

I haven't. The first episode brings you up to speed on everything in case you missed it.

In fact, I haven't watched 90% of Inu-Yasha and I was able to pick this up no problem.
