Fujita Saki as Rion

I felt motivated when I received the role of Rion.
I was watching “Inuyasha” with my family, so I was happy enough to be offered the audition… I’m just grateful that I’ll play Rion.
I would like to play in my own style and liven up everything with the performers and staff of the series.
I will do my best, so please support me.

Matsumoto Sara as Higurashi Towa

Season 2 of “Yashahime: Princess Half-Youth” is finally about to begin.
I was lonely as a viewer that I had to leave the work once with many mysteries remaining, and I sincerely wished, “Continue it quickly!” (Lol).
I hope that everyone will continue to watch what happens next, what is waiting for Princess Yasha, Inuyasha, and others.
There should be an episode that touches deeper into each person’s heart…! (Lol).
Thank you very much!

Komatsu Mikako as Setsuna

Season 1 ended on a cliffhanger.
A peaceful sleep in exchange for the death of Setsuna.
Finally, I could finally call her “Towa-neechan” … The hope that Sesshomaru entrusted to Towa under the rain.
Towa’s trial begins here again.
What is the connection with Kirinmaru, the life of her mother Rin, the fate of Inuyasha and Kagome, and the fate of her daughters…!
Season 2 also has unexpected turns! Please look forward to it!

Tadokoro Azusa as Moroha

Season 1 ended on such an unexpected note!
I think it is what made Moroha and others realize their weaknesses.
Please watch how she will grow up in season 2!
Also, the cuteness of Moroha-chan has been enhanced, so please look forward to it!
I will do my best to make it feel more lively!
Thank you!

MAYU (Little Glee Monster)

When I was a kid, I used to watch “Inuyasha”on TV.
I am very happy to be in charge of the ending theme of “Yashahime: Princess Half-Youth”, which inherits the world view of anime with a long history that I have been loving since I was in kindergarten.
Taking this opportunity, I am making music while reading “Inuyasha” again.
I would like to look forward to watching the anime together to see what happens to the last impact of season 1 in season 2.

New director Hishida Masakazu

My name is Hishida and I was appointed as the director of season 2 “Yashahime: Princess Half-Youth” after director Sato Teruo. “Inuyasha”, which is the origin of “Yashahime: Princess Half-Young”, is a memorable work that made my debut as a director for the first time at Sunrise, where I started my career, and it is also a work that raised me as an anime director. Regarding the various encounters this time, I feel something fateful and somewhat I am meant to be for. I would like to do my best so that I can give back to my fans as much as possible. I look forward to working on it.
