A manga adaption of this series, written by Takashi Shiina launched on September 25, 2021. One week before the Second Act's premiere in Japan.


Season 1

A flashback narrative six months after the events of The Final Act finale. Inuyasha and Kagome fight Root Head that Kikyō sealed away right before meeting Inuyasha, over half a century ago.

Over a decade later, the fourteen-year-old daughters of Sesshōmaru and Inuyasha set out on a journey transcending time itself. In Feudal Japan, fraternal half-demon twins Towa and Setsuna are separated from each other during a forest fire at the age of four. While desperately searching for her twin, Towa is sucked into a mysterious tunnel that sends her into the modern era, where she is found and raised by Kagome Higurashi's younger brother, Sōta, and his family.

One decade later, the Sacred Tree of Ages' time-traveling portal that connects the two five-century timelines reopens, allowing Towa to be reunited with Setsuna, who is now a hardhearted warrior and demon slayer working under the adult Kohaku. But to Towa's shock, Setsuna had lost all memories of their strong and close sisterly love and girlhood in the forest.

Joined by their first cousin Moroha, the only quarter-demon child of Inuyasha and Kagome Higurashi, the three travel between the two five century-long eras on an epic adventure to regain their missing past and resolve the apocalyptic crisis that is far more dangerous than either Naraku and the Shikon Jewel ever were.

Season 2: The Second Act

The destiny inherited from their lineage. The counterattack of the daughters, who have gotten new powers. The Princesses' mission is revealed!

Towa, daughter of Sesshōmaru, who grew up in the modern era, returned to the feudal era and looked for the Dream Butterfly to get her twin sister Setsuna's memories. Zero, elder sister of the sacred Beast King Kirinmaru, who is thought to be linked to the butterfly, sees half demons with hostility due to a prophecy about her brother being defeated by a half demon, and she plans to defeat Towa and the others. Towa and Setsuna have the great demon Sesshōmaru as their father and the human Rin as their mother. Their ally Moroha, is a quarter demon born between a half-demon and a human. Inuyasha and Kagome.

Right after being born, Zero aims at their lives, however, Towa is sent to the modern era, Setsuna starts living in the half-demon village and Moroha goes into the protection of the Wolf Demon Tribe and the three of them survive.

14 years ago, Inuyasha and Kagome were involved in the battle against Kirinmaru and were sent to the tomb of the Great Dog Demon, Sesshōmaru and Inuyasha's father, which was hidden inside the Black Pearl.

Despite being half-demons, Towa, Setsuna and Moroha give an excellent performance and Kirinmaru gets serious. At this battle, Setsuna is dispatched by Kirinmaru. Sesshōmaru appears in front of Towa, who is deeply lamenting on what happened, offers her the Tenseiga and asks her "Will you give it a try?". However, Tenseiga's blade, which is known as a healing sword that can save 100 lives in a single stroke, is shattered.

What will the broken Tenseiga do? Will Setsuna's lost life be called back by it? What will be the answer that Towa finds in the middle of the rain?
