Yashahime had a lot to live up to, especially being an anime about the children of the much beloved anime, Inuyasha. Moroha, Setsuna and Towa are all loveable characters in their own right, but in a much different way that Kagome, Inuyasha, Sango and Miroku were.  The nostalgia that was held with the previous series slightly comes through with this series as some characters carry over, but most of them are new or grown-up. The overall story is more of an introduction and starter to telling the story of what is to become of Inuyasha and Sesshomaru’s daughters. 

The start explains how Towa is connected to the present, making a connection towards how Kagome used to come from the present and traveled to feudal Japan. The three females battle with a lot, all coming from different backgrounds yet all tied together to adventure and defeat other demons. There is a light overall storyline, but it revolves more around character building the three main characters rather than telling the main plot or explaining anything that has happened between Inuyasha and Yashahime. 

The animation and sound are both smooth, contributing to the great overall flow of the show. Both opening and ending songs are both great, featuring a lot of scenes from the anime as well as tying in a lot of nostalgia that is highly anticipated from the show. Overall this show as much as people were looking for a nostalgic show, it should be seen as a separate entity and something in its own right.
