Inuyasha is an anime fans never expect a sequel from but they were proved wrong when creator Rumiko Takahashi confirmed such a story is in the works. The beloved artist has partnered with Sunrise Studios to revive Inuyasha for a new anime titled Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon. The series will follow the children of Sesshomaru as well as Inuyasha, and details are surfacing about the latter's kids at last. As it turns out, Kagome and Inuyasha have a lovely daughter on their hands, but fans will be surprised over how the girl was raised.
As shared on its official website and Twitter (with translations provided by @miggyxmarie on Twitter), Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon will feature Inuyasha and Kagome's daughter who serves as a young bounty hunter that unfortunately doesn't know much about her parents. That might be a surprise to many.
The official website for Yashahime describes Moroha as such, "A 14 year old bounty hunter. Each time she exterminates a ghost, she sells the booty to Shikabaneya Jyubei, who trades bounty heads. She uses the ghost sword Kurikaramaru, Her nickname is "Bakekoroshi (Ghost Killer) no Moroha." When she puts on her lipstick that is carried in a shell with a red pearl, she turns into the 'The Red Country-Destroying Demon' and acts very wild."

But there's one line in her description that seems a bit troubling and teases that something happened to Inuyasha and Kagome before the sequel, "Her personality is cheerful and open-hearted. She is more worldly than [Sesshomaru's daughters] Setsuna and Towa. She is actually the daughter of Inuyasha and Kagome, but she hardly knows her parents because she has lived alone since she was young." If she was alone since she was young, what happened there?
