Alongside NEWS, who is performing the opening theme, the currently untitled ending theme song will be sung by J-pop group Little Glee Monster, who are best known as the artists behind the first ending theme song of the second season of My Hero Academia "Dakara, Hitori Janai". It was also revealed that Saki Fujita (Ymir in Attack on Titan) will be joining the cast as Rion, the daughter of Kirinmaru.
Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon—The Second Act will be airing on YTV and NTV from October 2 at 5:30 PM Japan time, with Viz Media licensing the series for western markets. The first season is streaming on Crunchyroll, which describes it as such:
Set in feudal Japan, half-demon twins Towa and Setsuna are separated from each other during a forest fire. While desperately searching for her younger sister, Towa wanders into a mysterious tunnel that sends her into present-day Japan, where she is found and raised by Kagome Higurashi’s brother, Sota, and his family. Ten years later, the tunnel that connects the two eras has reopened, allowing Towa to be reunited with Setsuna, who is now a demon slayer working for Kohaku. But to Towa’s shock, Setsuna appears to have lost all memories of her older sister.
