The sequel to the classic Inuyasha anime has finally completed its first season and fans of the series will be happy to know that a second season for the sequel has been swiftly confirmed and is already in the works.
This announcement was made in the final episode of the Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon (Han’yō no Yasha Hime) TV anime.
A NEW SEASON CONFIRMED
Before the season finale confirmed the second season, there were already rumors of a second season, considering how fans have warmed up to this new generation of hunters. A fan on Twitter (Sugoi Lite) even shared the news of a confirmed second season with the poster before the final episode aired.

The series, so far, has taken fans through the very different world of the past that has seen characters like Inuyasha, Sesshomaru, Kagome, and Rin absent from the proceedings, with their daughters having to fend for themselves in both the era of days gone by and the modern era.
Fans’ approval of the new characters- such as Toga, Setsuna, and Moroha- is a testament to the good work of Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon.
While the second season, Ni no Shō (Part II), has been given the green light, the announcement’s teaser visual features Sesshōmaru’s daughter, Towa Higurashi. With the mystery of their respective parents slowly unfolding across the first twenty-four episodes of the first season, it will be interesting to see what the second season holds.
ABOUT THE FRANCHISE
Sunrise will also be directing the second season and we expect the staff and cast to return. Takahashi launched the original Inuyasha manga in Weekly Shonen Sunday in 1996 and ended it in 2008. Viz licensed and published all 56 volumes of the manga.
The 167-episode Inuyasha anime series, based on the manga, ran from 2000-2004. A 26-episode sequel anime titled InuYasha: The Final Act then ran from 2009-2010. The series has inspired four movies and a 30-minute anime short. The franchise has also recently inspired a smartphone game and a stage play.
