Plot: 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.
Welcome to the Yashahime review. This will be a short review without spoilers. This will be a challenging review as it's hard to not compare this sequel series to its predecessor. For a franchise that has a different cast in its sequel, it can run problems attracting the older fans, the newer fans, or both.
If you love Setsuna and Towa, these two sisters get a lot of development in their relationships due to Setsuna not remembering Towa.
The series is light hearted and more comedic oriented. Only a few episodes have seriousness. However, that can be seen as a con for fans (see below).
Out of the 3 main poster characters, Moroha gets the least development. Her backstory episode is fairly rushed, and there are not much build up for her story. She is often the comedic character of the trio which makes her character flat when approaching her backstory and drama that comes with it.
The Inuyasha characters do not get much screen time other than Miroku and Sesshomaru. There are not much fan service. The anime sequel is much lighter in action and drama. For those who crave action and tension of Inuyasha nostalgia, you will be disappointed by Yashahime.
Lack of focus - most of the episodes meander a bit from the episodic bounty hunting. The important questions of Rin and Inuyasha are put aside while Setsuna and Towa's relationships have a sporadic growth.
Overall, I can only recommend Yashahime to newer fans/ casual fans who have never seen Inuyasha. Then, I would recommend them to watch Inuyasha later. Yashahime doesn't spoil new fans on what happened in Inuyasha. They hardly cover the events of Inuyasha or even showcase the cast outside of Miroku and Sesshomaru. As a person who watched Inuyasha, I did my best to enjoy Yashahime. It felt as a weak sequel. I'm hoping season 2 improves.

Old Man Dream: Been wanting an anime remake for Tsukihime for a while, provided it gets Ufotable at the helm of animating it. Like Fate, but the horse for it's getting squeezed dry enough, especially with its many spinoffs.
