The official website of the anime series Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon (Japanese: 半妖の夜叉姫) has announced that it is getting a manga adaptation by Zettai Karen Children manga creator Takashi Shiina. The manga will launch in the November issue of Shogakukan's Shounen Sunday S magazine to be released on September 25, 2021.
To commemorate the comicalization of Yashahime, Shiina drew the illustration below, which brings together the sister protagonists of Yashahime and the protagonists of Shiina's own Zettai Karen Children.
Shiina only recently ended the Zettai Karen Children manga on July 14, 2021 after 16 years. The sci-fi comedy series began in Shogakukan's Weekly Shounen Sunday magazine in 2005. The manga inspired a 51-episode television anime series in 2008, as well as a 2010 original video anime adaptation.
Yashahime is the sequel to the famous Inuyasha anime series based on the original manga series written and illustrated by Rumiko Takahashi. The story revolves around Towa and Setsuna (Sesshomaru and Rin's twin daughters) and Moroha (Inuyasha and Kagome Higurashi's teenage daughter). The series' first season aired from October 2020 to March 2021. A second season is scheduled to premiere on Yomiuri TV and NTV on October 2, 2021.

Synopsis of Yashahime by MAL:
Half-demon twins Towa and Setsuna were always together, living happily in Feudal Japan. But their joyous days come to an end when a forest fire separates them and Towa is thrown through a portal to modern-day Japan. There, she is found by Souta Higurashi, who raises her as his daughter after Towa finds herself unable to return to her time.
Ten years later, 14-year-old Towa is a relatively well-adjusted student, despite the fact that she often gets into fights. However, unexpected trouble arrives on her doorstep in the form of three visitors from Feudal Japan; Moroha, a bounty hunter; Setsuna, a demon slayer and Towa's long-lost twin sister; and Mistress Three-Eyes, a demon seeking a mystical object. Working together, the girls defeat their foe, but in the process, Towa discovers to her horror that Setsuna has no memory of her at all. Hanyou no Yashahime: Sengoku Otogizoushi follows the three girls as they endeavor to remedy Setsuna's memory loss, as well as discover the truth about their linked destinies.
