Hanyou no Yashahime Synopsis
Sesshomaru and Inuyasha’s daughters set off on an adventure that transcends time! In Feudal Japan, half-demon twins Towa and Setsuna are separated during a forest fire. While desperately searching for her younger sister, Towa comes across a mysterious tunnel that transports her to modern Japan, where she is found and placed in the care of Kagome Higurashi’s brother, Sota, and her family.
Ten years later, the tunnel connecting the two eras is reopened, allowing Towa to rejoin Setsuna, who has now become a Youkai Assassin in conjunction with Kohaku. But the worst thing is that Setsuna seems to have lost memories and no longer recognizes Towa. Now teaming up with Moroha, Inuyasha’s daughter, and Kagome, the three of them will travel between two eras on an adventure to recover a forgotten past.
