Season 1 was first announced back in May 2020 and was released in less than six months despite the pandemic, when the anime world was one of the worst-hit in the entertainment industry. Since the present-day situations are much more favorable, the fans can hope for an early release. Therefore, we can expect ‘Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon’ season 2 to premiere sometime in the fall or winter of 2021.
Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon Season 2 Plot: What can it be About?
In the season 1 finale, we witness Sesshoumaru’s twin daughters and Moroha fight Kirinmaru. Although their last confrontation goes badly for the trio, this time, things are different as Towa draws out her latent powers when her half-demon sister’s life is under threat. Along with Moroha, who uses her Beniyasha powers, Towa surprises Kirinmaru. Aware that his adversaries have turned the fight on its head, Kirinmaru goes away after showing his respect for Towa.
Season 2 of the show has a lot to offer, as the season 1 finale leaves many questions answered. ‘Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon’ fans are scratching their heads, perplexed by numerous questions. Why does Kirinmaru care about Sesshoumaru deserting his children? What is the point of building the entire plot around the Rainbow Pearls and then just casually destroying them as if they don’t matter? What about the comet that is likely to strike Earth? What will Kirinmaru do now after running away from the fight with Towa and Moroha?
Hopefully, the upcoming season will come with some answers. The viewers can expect to finally get to know the motivations of the antagonists, which are not yet established. The limits of Towa’s powers are not known; how will the upcoming season shape up in accordance with her new-found abilities? It will be exciting to watch. Season 1 may have left a couple of loose ends, but hopefully, the upcoming season will dispel all doubts that fans may have about the characters.
