Yashahime takes full advantage of the audiences’ nostalgia and integrates original characters from Inuyasha into the anime.
As a show about the next generation, Yashahime’s audience basically consists of fans who watch it for nostalgia, quite similar to what’s happening with Boruto at the moment. While there have been complaints about the overuse and recycling of third class villains from Inuyasha, the inclusion of characters such as Miroku and Sango have been highly appreciated.
Seeing how these characters from Inuyasha have been leading their life in the sequel seems to be therapeutic for some fans while also raising plenty of questions about their actions. Let’s take a look at everyone who makes an appearance in Yashahime from its parent series, and see what they have been up to.
1. List of Inuyasha Characters in Yashahime?
- Inuyasha (flashback)
- Kagome (flashback)
- Sesshomaru (flashback)
- Kagome’s family
- Jaken (flashback)
- Shippo (flashback)
- Root head demon
2. Will Inuyasha & Kagome be in Yashahime?
Inuyasha and Kagome will make an appearance in Yashahime sooner or later. While Sesshomaru has saved them by “trapping” them inside Toga’s graveyard, they can’t remain there forever and will have to come out at some point.
Inuyasha and Kagome’s fate is directly tied in with their daughter, Moroha, and their half-demon nieces, Towa and Setsuna. There’s no doubt that they will be needed in the final fight and will have to leave their haven in order to confront Kirinmaru.
However, rather than whether they will appear or not, the main question fans have is about their condition. Stuck inside Toga’s graveyard where nothing grows for 15 years, it is difficult to imagine their state, and we can only hope that they are well.
3. Kaede is in Yashahime! How is she still alive?
Kaede is in Yashahime and has once again taken the role of providing a home to Kagome’s daughter, Moroha, and Sesshomaru’s daughters, the half-demon princesses, Towa and Setsuna.
One of the ever-lasting mysteries of Yashahime is Kaede’s lifespan. Throughout Inuyasha, she looked as if she had one foot in the grave, and yet, even in the sequel, Kaede is going strong. Assumed to be 73 currently, it seems as if her powers have not diminished in the slightest, proved by the fact that the village is still standing and flourishing.
Her existence in Yashahime is instrumental in giving the three young protagonists, Towa, Setsuna, and Moroha, a safe place and home to come back to.
4. Miroku & Sango are in Yashahime!
Miroku and Sango appeared in episode 13 of Yashahime and made many fans nostalgic. The audience was reminded of the past days where the duo traveled with Inuyasha and Kagome to collect the Shikon Jewel fragments.
In the sequel, Miroku and Sango live a quiet life deep in the mountains with their two daughters, while their son follows Kohaku as a Yokai taijiya. While Miroku has lost his Wind Tunnel, he has been training for 1000 days in order to develop a divine power.
During Totetsu’s attack, however, Miroku seemed pitifully weak compared to his peak in Inuyasha. It makes fans question whether it is even possible for him to regain his strength, and the answer is – probably not.
5. Will Sesshomaru & Rin be in Yashahime?
Sesshomaru and Rin will definitely make an appearance in Yashahime sooner or later. They have already appeared in the show in the form of flashbacks, and it won’t be long before we see them in their full glory.
Yashahime’s episode 15 finally answered the question of who birthed Sesshomaru’s children, and the answer surprised few. Rin is the mother of Setsuna and Towa and Sesshomaru’s partner. However, her and Sesshomaru’s fate in the anime doesn’t seem too promising.
Rin’s body currently rests within the Sacred Tree of Ages, and she is considered to be neither dead nor alive. It is assumed that Sesshomaru put her in this state; however, the reason is unknown. With him being painted as an antagonist in Yashahime, we can only attempt to guess at Sesshomaru and Rin’s fate.
6. About Hanyô no Yashahime
Hanyô no Yashahime follows the adventures of Sesshomaru’s half-demon twin daughters, Towa and Setsuna. When they were young, the half-demon twins were separated from each other during a forest fire.
While desperately searching for her younger sister, Towa wandered into a mysterious tunnel that sends her into present-day Japan.
She is found and raised by Kagome Higurashi’s brother, Sôta, and his family. Ten years later, the tunnel that connects the two eras has reopened!
This allowed 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 girls travel between the two eras on an adventure to regain their missing past.
