Hanyo no Yashahime


The daughters of Sesshomaru and Inuyasha embark on a journey through time! After being separated from her half-demon twin sister Setsuna during a forest fire, Towa wanders into a mysterious tunnel that sends her through time to present-day Japan, where she is found by Kagome Higurashi’s brother, Sota, who takes her in and raises her as part of his family. The sisters are reunited 10 years later when the tunnel connecting the two eras reopens, but Towa is shocked to discover that her sister, who is now a demon slayer working for Kohaku, has lost all memory of her. Now, the sisters, together with Moroha, the daughter of Inuyasha and Kagome who also has no memory of her past, must travel through time on an adventure to regain their missing past!
