Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon has confirmed how many episodes it plans to stick around for with Season 2 of the series! Fans of Rumiko Takahashi’s original Inuyasha series were surprised to find the creator returned to supervise a whole new anime bringing the franchise back for a new spin. This series is an official sequel/spin-off that follows the daughters of Inuyasha and Sesshomaru, and the first season of the series was a hit with fans when it wrapped earlier this year. Now the series has returned as part of the Fall 2021 schedule for the second season of the anime.
The first season of the anime had lasted for 24 episodes in total, so fans were hoping the second season would be the same. Following reports earlier this Fall that noted the new season would be sticking around for 24 episodes, the Blu-ray and DVD listings for Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon in Japan have confirmed that Season 2 will last for 24 episodes. This means that like the first season, this second season will be two cours long and stretch across two whole seasonal schedules. So fans can get comfy with this one!

If you wanted to check out the Inuyasha sequel/spin-off for yourself, Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon is now streaming with Crunchyroll, Funimation and Hulu. Viz Media officially describes the series as such, “The daughters of Sesshomaru and Inuyasha set out on a journey transcending time! 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.”
