Yashahime Princess Half-Demon Reviews and Ratings
A show that had already been loved by viewers so much that it is difficult to impress the fans when it has a sequel. We already know that the sequel show is not following the original Manga series. That is why gaining a fan base of that level is not an easy task for the creators.

Those who have grown up watching ‘Inuyasha’ are happy to see a sequel. However, some others think that it is a disaster.
Talking about anime awards, Rumiko Takahashi and Yoshihito Hishinuma were nominated for the best character design in Crunchyroll 2021 Anime Awards.
The anime currently has 6.72/10 on MyAnimeList & 7.2/10 on IMDb.
