Funimation Announces Inuyasha Spinoff Anime Yashahime's Dub Cast

Recommended Posts

RVw6iBD.jpgFunimation announced on Monday that it is partnering with Viz Media to release an English dub of the Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon (Han'yō no Yasha Hime) anime spinoff of Rumiko Takahashi's Inuyasha series. Erica Mendez is voicing Towa Higurashi, Kira Buckland is voicing Setsuna, and Morgan Berry is voicing Moroha.

 

The anime premiered in Japan on October 3. Viz Media began streaming the anime with English subtitles on Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Hulu on the same day in North and Latin American territories.

 

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.

Teruo Sato (Inuyasha episode director) is directing the anime at Sunrise, and Katsuyuki Sumisawa is in charge of the series scripts after doing the same for Inuyasha and Mobile Suit Gundam Wing. Takahashi herself is credited as the main character designer, with Yoshihito Hishinuma (Yakitate!! Japan, City Hunter: Shinjuku Private Eyes) returning from Inuyasha to adapt her designs for animation. Kaoru Wada (3x3 Eyes, Battle Angel, The File of Young Kindaichi) is also back from Inuyasha to compose the music.

 

SixTONES are performing the opening theme song "NEW ERA." Uru is performing the ending theme song "Break" for the anime.
