‘Inuyasha’ is Getting an Anime Sequel About Inuyasha and Sesshomaru’s Daughters

Inuyasha was one of the biggest animes of the early 2000s. Coming right at the height of the global anime wave of the ’90s and 2000s, the Rumiko Takahashi-created series converted many a young anime fan (including yours truly) with its fantastical action-adventure story about a contemporary Japanese teenager who gets trapped in feudal Japan. The anime was one of the iconic globally popular animes, preceding the likes of Bleach, Naruto, One Piece, and the current shonen anime king, My Hero Acade...
