Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon follows the daughters of Sesshomaru and Inuyasha as they set out on their own journey that transcends time.
The show will begin in feudal Japan where half-demon twins Towa and Setsuna are separated due to a forest fire. While trying to find her younger sister, Towa discovers a mysterious travel and travels through it ending up in modern-day Japan.
Towa is discovered and raised by Kagome Higurashi’s brother, Sota, and his family. However, she tunnel that connects the two times closes behind Towa.
The tunnel is not opened until a decade later and allows Towa to reunite with Setsuna, who has become a demon slayer working for Kohaku. But when Towa does reunite with Setsuna, she discovers that Setsuna has lost all memories of her.
Nevertheless, Towa and Setsuna will travel between the two eras alongside Moroha, the daughter of Inuyasha and Kagome, in order to regain their missing past.
