As a follow up to the previous news I wrote the other day, in case you missed it, it has been revealed that an Inuyasha sequel anime project was announced.

English company Viz Media wrote in their blog page that this sequel is happening and it will have a returning crew from the previous anime. Inuyasha manga creator Rumiko Takahashi will design the characters and the animation company Studio Sunrise will return. The new sequel will focus on the daughters of Inuyasha and Sesshomaru who are also half-demons. Here is the synopsis for the sequel anime:

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.

With this confirmation news, are you excited for the return of Inuyasha?
