The thing that bothers me most about this is that you spelled Inuyasha with a hyphen.

I've never had a complaint about any of Rumiko Takahashi's works. I'm sure that what she has in store will be solid.

From what I heard, it's going to center around the daughters of Inuyasha and Sesshomaru.

Also, VIZ jumped on the license for it right quick.

Kagura, yes. 2nd episode of Final Act.

Rin is younger than Kagome and if she died, it would definitely be an untimely death. I believe she'll be like a 25-year old woman in the series, which means that one of the younger male characters will no doubt have a boyish crush on her!

Kagura died.  I believe Rin survived.

Looks like the new lead gets to have the magic sword this time.  They’re all girls apparently, just one was raised by Kagome’s brother in the present.

As far as I can tell, Takahashi isn't writing this.  It's an anime, not a manga (of course it surely will be, eventually), and is only providing the original characters and designs.  So there's that.  I'm looking forward to seeing what they'll do though.

The daughters of Sesshoumaru 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, Souta, 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.

I saw this in an email from MAL.  They notify you of sequels and spin-offs of shows on your list, I believe?  Is this real?  Because it sounds like a fuckin fanfic.  But I'm all over it if this show is real!

I saw people saying in the MAL thread that Sesshoumaru would have had the twins with Rin?  But wasn't she more like a daughter to him?  Surely that is not who he had the kids with?  Also, having a relationship and kids with someone you knew since they were a child, while you were already a teen or adult... seems... not right.

I love Inuyasha, so I'm a bit excited for this, even though this is completely out of left field.  I do admit that the premise seems a bit like fanfic, though.  Though with Takahashi not writing it, I can just say it IS fanfic and not canon if I don't like it.  Just like Eureka Seven AO.

I really hope they don't have Sesshy paired up with Rin.  It was bad enough in Usagi Drop and I couldn't bare to see it here.

He's a Demon. The age of a human probably has no meaning to him since they're all far younger anyway... he's 900.

At the end of the show it seems like Rin is living a normal human life, so he's not raising her or anything. 

And yes Usagi Drop is a bit messed up at the end.

Still a child when he met her.  He would know the difference between children and adult humans.  He also used endless old man insults against Totosai, the old swordsmith demon, so he has a concept of age in general (and doesn't consider himself an old man, for a demon anyway.)

I was trying to find how old Rin was at the end of the series since there is a time skip of a few years, to no avail.  Either way, does this even work timeline-wise?  Kagome and Inuyasha are going to wait until Rin is grown up to have twins with Sesshomaru to have their baby?  How old would they be by then?  I don't see that making too much sense, as the new characters all seem around the same age.

There really is no reason that the mother HAS to be Rin, either.  Or even a character we already know.  Sesshomaru obviously changed his view on humans and was kind enough to take in Rin for a time, there's no reason he couldn't have taken a human wife and had kids with her at some point in the intervening years.

I just looked that up.

What. The. Fuck.

Her name is Rin too.  Fucking hell.

Here is an article from ANN with a LOT more information.

https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2020-05-08/inuyasha-anime-gets-yashahime-princess-half-demon-tv-spinoff-this-fall/.159360

I'm looking forward to that new visual teaser on the 13th and hopefully some more clarity.

The one in the suit is Towa?  I call bullshit on that.  Does not look female in the least.  And ANN wrote it as Towa Higurashi.  Which comes off as a typo since Towa is Sesshomaru's daughter, not Kagome's.  Unless she took that name because she was raised by Sota in present Japan?

A little late, but here's a now semi-relevant segment from an ancient (read: early 2010's) comic.

I was in a conversation in another thread, and I just saw that more has been released.  Some of it just today.  Final character designs for the characters and some weapon reveals.  I'm kind of surprised that no one else bumped this.

I am surprised that Moroha doesn't have silver hair.  Her hair and eye color are just like Kagome's.  But facially and hair style she looks like Inuyasha.  And the hairbow, alluding to Inuyasha's ears, is a nice touch.  She's also wearing what I think is the fire rat robe.  But it turns out her sword isn't Tessaiga.

EdQniRKUwAE662u?format=png&name=medium

It's called Kurikamaru.  I was reading a reply under the announcement tweet that mentioned the name could have something to do with dragons, and I see there is a dragon design on the blade.  Hmm.

Not sure what their red streaks in their hair are all about.  On Towa with her silver hair it makes me think she could be yet another sibling of Todoroki haha.

Towa's sword is called Kikujiyuumonji.  Rolls right off the tongue...

Setsuna's spear/halberd thing is called Kanemitsu no Tomoe.

Did that Root Head demon appear before or did they make up that battle retroactively for this?

We got an undies shot!  Proof Towa is a girl!  And you could tell she had breasts when she did that lunging overhead sword swing at the end!

And I don't know why she is wearing that suit!  It does look like Colonel Sanders lmao.

Setsuna is just like Sesshomaru LOL.  And Moroha acts like Inuyasha.  But I don't know if he ever acted that cocky?  And she called herself Beniyasha hahaha.

So one of the Demon Slayers is Sota, and people are saying the other one is Miroku and Sango's son?  If he he's grown up by now, how old would Sango and Miroku be by now?

No we don't need another Shippo!  Looks like a Tanooki this time.  Who is the person in the back with brown hair?  That isn't Shippo grown up, is it?!

And how is Kaede still alive and looks exactly the same?!

Apparently according to character details that were put out, Towa prefers dressing in male clothes cause she finds them a lot less restrictive or something to fight in. Though I find it pretty funny that they have her dress up that way, when not one single high school in Japan has a dress code that will ever allow it, or school uniforms even remotely flashy like that.

Like I said in the other thread that HH posted, as far as character ages. I once saw that Sango was 14 in the beginning, but her wiki page says she was 16. By the time she was 17 is when her and Miroku's two girls were born, 19 was when Kagome went back to them, their boy born then. It'd take at least a year before Kagome would have popped out Moroha, and the new characters are to be 14 or 15, so Sango is at minimum 34, their son would then be 15/16. Apparently Miroku was 18 in the beginning, 21 by the time Kagome returned. So he'd be about 36 or 37. Though supposedly according to the plot synopsis Moroha hasn't seen her parents in 10 years. I'm pretty sure they weren't killed off, since that'd piss off a whole lot of people, but if they're gone I wouldn't be surprised if Miroku and Sango are also gone.

Apparently Towa was 4 when she ended up in modern day time, so I'd imagine the scene in the trailer with them fighting the root head demon wasn't too long after the series ended, most of the characters would be in their early-mid twenties which is why they'd look similar to how they did.

As for the one brown haired girl in the one scene with Towa, Sota by this time would be around 30 so it's possible that he has a kid, that girl being Towa's cousin.

Where did you see Kaede? I doubt she's still alive by the time of the story, but back with root head demon it's possible she was still alive then. Apparently she's 63 by the end of the main series, so realistically I'd say she could probably go another decade or so.

Well how the hell is a suit not restrictive lmao.  Yeah no idea about what school would allow her to wear that, unless it is her non-school outfit she constantly wears for some reason.  I did like the scene of Towa brawling with school punks, reminded me of Ichigo.  I wonder how much time will be spent in present day.  It looks like she was about to fight to protect her "little sister" (Sota's daughter) in one scene.  You see her take out her sword.  I don't think she would use that on human bullies.

I found this.

https://www.fanpop.com/clubs/inuyasha/articles/138724/title/takahashi-backstage-interview-how-old-inuyasha-characters

Many of the fan letters I receive ask the question “How old are Inuyasha and the other characters?” Some fans make guesses. The character with the greatest range is Miroku, with guesses ranging from the late teens to late twenties… I basically think it's all right for the readers to view the characters as whatever age they see fit, but since so many people ask this, I'll answer with the ages I have in my head as I work.

It is clearly stated that Kagome's age is 15, so for balance, Sango is about 15 or 16, and Miroku about 17, 18. I think of Kikyo as having died at about age 17… Demons such as Shippo, Sesshomaru and Koga live anywhere from tens to hundreds of years, so I'll leave it up to the readers to decide. Inuyasha is a half-demon—and was sealed away for 50 years—so I'm not sure how to figure his age out. But if he was sealed away for 50 years, then… Emotionally, I'd say he's about the human equivalent of 15 years old, the same as Kagome. So there you have it. If you see this, tell all your friends in your class! Now goodbye, everyone!

Amazing that it is so hard to have such simple questions answered, and even after all this time.  Of course we then have to add on the time skips to these figures.

I knew Sango was never that young.  I remember back when I was first watching the show, some people saying Inuyasha's relationship with Kagome was inappropriate because he was older than her, but he is around the same age, minus the time on the tree, which doesn't count.  He isn't 17 or 18, or 200, like that movie said.  And I can see the InuYasha wikia is bullshit since they go by that figure and say he ages slow and was 150 when he got sealed, which isn't true.  Also even if Inuyasha was a couple years older than Kagome it wouldn't be a big deal.  And yeah it had been known since back in the old days that Miroku is a bit older than the others.

It would be lame as hell if Inuyasha, Kagome, Miroku, and Sango are all dead.  But either way, I don't like that Moroha either hasn't seen her parents in years or doesn't even know them, or at least doesn't remember them.  On the other hand, it would seem there has to be a way to remove them from the battle so the next generation can shine.  I can't see them being weaker for being in their 30s and they might actually be stronger by then, after decades of experience and power development, even if it has been relatively peaceful and they haven't been racking up epic battles all that time like they did when Naraku and the Shikon Jewel were still around.  Also the fact that Kohaku seems to have taken over demon slaying duties and training new slayers, and Miroku and Sango's son has Kilala and Hiraikotsu.  At the very least, Miroku and Sango specifically are "retired," and Miroku wouldn't have his wind tunnel, in any case. 

I read a theory someone posted that Kagome died in childbirth and Inuyasha can't face his daughter because of it, which would be dumb as fuck.  Either way, Inuyasha wouldn't ignore his kid or be a shitty parent, given Inuyasha lost both of his parents and he mostly had to raise himself.

So was the Root Head thing a new thing made up for Yasha-Hime or did they fight that in the original series or Final Act and I forgot?  Or was it in the manga and got cut from the anime?

I guess I didn't make it clear but I was also reacting to the poster that was released that Poke posted, haha.

https://www.viz.com/blog/posts/yashahime-princess-half-demon-arrives-in-october

Yashahime_blogsplash_1200x630.jpg

I know that the little brown-haired girl is of course Sota's daughter.  But who is the brown-haired person in the back of this poster?  It could be Shippo?  Hard to tell.  I need to look at it on my computer later.  Then there is Kaede of all people clearly shown there.  Inuyasha and Sesshomaru are shown as in the past/symbolic, from my view, and that isn't the current them we are seeing, but just to show how they looked back during the original series and Final Act, these are their fathers, the legacy etc etc.  It is just how they are in the earlier poster they released.

EXgcCDwXgAEE5Zp?format=jpg&name=900x900

But I can't see a reason to include Kaede of all people as part of "legacy," especially since Kagome isn't shown, plus she is closer in than Inuyasha or Sesshomaru and the fact they put the new character with brown hair or possibly a grown up Shippo in between doesn't make sense.  So clearly all the characters in that poster are in the present, except Inuyasha and Sesshomaru.

And I see now the poses are actually different.  Inuyasha and Sesshomaru are fully colored in now, but they are waaay in the back of the group, Sesshomaru is gazing off into the sky, and Inuyasha's back is turned.  Yeah, something happened and they can't be involved in the current story for some reason, even if they probably [hopefully] aren't dead.  But I don't like that Kagome isn't shown at all.  Moroha is just as much Kagome's legacy as Inuyasha's.  She has the priestess powers.  So I hope nothing happened to her.  I am less worried about Miroku and Sango not being in the poster since their son isn't one of the stated lead characters. 

Though, going by everything so far, Towa seems to be the one who will get the most focus out of the three.  The show is also called Yasha-Hime: Princess Half-Demon, meaning Moroha isn't the main character, and singular "half-demon", so only one of the twins can be princess?  Towa?  Though I think Setsuna and Moroha will get no less focus than Miroku and Sango did.  The original show was a pretty good balance between the four main characters.  But this show might go a different route, who knows.

Of course, I am wildly speculating off of mere scraps of information they have given us, heh.
