Hey water balloons. The most adorable, benevolent, and diligent social media personality is back at the news desk for another evening of picking up the ball for her boss.
On Friday, Viz Media announced that they picked up the rights to upcoming Inuyasha spinoff Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon. Specifically, they picked up streaming, video, and digital sales rights to the show for North America and Latin America.
Viz describes it as:
In Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon, the daughters of Sesshomaru and Inuyasha set out on a journey transcending time. Set 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.
Teruo Sato is directing the series at Sunrise, while Rumiko Takahashi returns for original character designs. Katsuyuki Sumisawa, who wrote scripts for Inuyasha, is returning to write the screenplay. Yoshihito Hishinuma will do the show’s character designs.
So yeah. Go nuts, humans. I mean, that’s what you do when you get the thing, right?
