12 Moments In Anime 2020, #10: Inu Yasha Sequel?!

So to all you anime fans who were around during the 2000s, who remembers Inu Yasha? Anime fans back then couldn't go a day without at least hearing about it. Inu Yasha was a sort of time travel isekai manga (Before isekai became oversaturated like it is now) penned by Rumiko Takahashi, who was famous for manga such as Maison Ikkoku and Ranma 1/2. I never saw the anime myself, as it just wasn't my thing, but my friends at that time absolutely LOVED it. But over the years, people began to get tired of the original anime, namely for going on way too long and having a lot of unnecessary filler. Hell, it took years for the final arc of the manga to get animated, and by then, the damage had been done. It was seen as a relic of the 2000s, and while it still had its fans, Inu Yasha wasn't the popular franchise that it was. Besides, it had a good run, and it was time for it to be put to rest.

...OR WAS IT?!

Now imagine peoples' surprise when out of freaking nowhere, in May 2020, it was announced that Inu Yasha would be getting a distant sequel anime focusing on the main casts' children and descandants called Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon. And keep in mind, this sequel is a completely original project not adapting any manga in any way (And by original project, I mean that Yashahime didn't start as a manga and then get adapted into an anime. I mean that Yashahime is a completely anime original project based on Inu Yasha). Of course, Rumiko Takahashi herself is overseeing the anime, and as of right now, it's currently airing with both subs and dubs coming out consistently. I ask you: Who the HELL expected this to ever happen?! I know I sure didn't! And it's being produced with the world being hit with COVID right now. Seeing as I've never been a fan of Inu Yasha myself, I have no interest in seeing it, but seeing as how the franchise has endured after all this time, I'm sure Inu Yasha fans are pretty happy to have something new to look forward to.
