Viz Media reveals the English cast of Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon’s.
Funimation also announced their partnership with Viz Media to release an English dub of the Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon to be available soon on Funimation. Both Viz Media and Funimation only reveal three dub casts so far for the main character; it is uncertain if they plan to bring back the original cast from the InuYasha series.
- Towa Higurashi will be voiced by Erica Mendez.
- Setsuna will be voiced by Kira Buckland.
- Moroha will be voiced by Morgan Berry.
Viz has the rights “to the digital streaming, EST, and home video” of the anime in North and Latin American territories. The company describes “the brand new anime from the Inuyasha universe”:
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.
