posted on by Alex Mateo

Viz Media announced on Friday that the English dub for the Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon - The Second Act anime will begin streaming on Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Hulu on Friday. Crunchyroll also announced on Friday that it will stream an English dub for Gloomy the Naughty Grizzly anime.

Crunchyroll will begin streaming the English dub for Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon - The Second Act (Hanyō no Yashahime: Ni no Shō), the second season of the Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon (Hanyō no Yashahime) anime spinoff of Rumiko Takahashi's Inuyasha series, on Friday at 6:00 p.m. EDT in the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe, and the Middle East.

The anime premiered on Yomiuri TV and NTV on October 2. The anime is streaming on Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Hulu.

The first season of the Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon anime premiered in Japan in October 2020. Viz Media began streaming the anime with English subtitles on Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Hulu on the same day in North and Latin American territories. Funimation is partnering with Viz Media to release the anime's English dub. Adult Swim's Toonami programming block premiered the anime on June 26.

Viz has the rights "to the digital streaming, EST, and home video" of the anime in North and Latin American territories. The company describes "the brand new anime from the Inuyasha universe":

The daughters of Sesshomaru and Inuyasha set out on a journey transcending time!

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.

Joined by Moroha, the daughter of Inuyasha and Kagome, the three young women travel between the two eras on an adventure to regain their missing past.

Takahashi launched the original Inuyasha manga in Weekly Shonen Sunday in 1996, and ended it in 2008. Viz licensed and published all 56 volumes of the manga in North America.

The 167-episode Inuyasha anime series based on the manga ran from 2000-2004. A 26-episode sequel anime titled InuYasha: The Final Act then ran from 2009-2010. The series has inspired four movies and a 30-minute anime short. Viz began releasing the anime on Blu-ray Disc in 2019.

All 12 episodes of the Gloomy the Naughty Grizzly (Itazura Guma no Gloomy) television anime based on Chack Mori's Gloomy Bear character begin streaming on Crunchyroll on Friday in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, and the Commonwealth of Independent States.

The Gloomy the Naughty Grizzly anime premiered on Tokyo MX in April. The anime is also streaming on YouTube in Japanese without English subtitles.

Crunchyroll describes the story:

GLOOMY is Pity's pet bear. He's a little over 6 feet and weighs as much as 2000 pomegranates. He's well trained for the most part, but he can never remember that he's not supposed to attack humans. Still, a pet owner must take ultimate responsibility for his pets. Recalling warm memories of GLOOMY as a cute bear cub, Pity tries to lead a life of peaceful co-existence with his pet bear.

The new staff members include original creator Chack Mori as animation director and series script supervisor, Megu Yagi and Aimi Morodome as scriptwriters, Kunihiko Mita and Yumiko Abe as 3D CGI directors, Hitomi Satō as art director, and Shōta Yoshida and Toshikazu Kuno as directors of photography.

Kōichi Yamadera voices Gloomy in the series. Natsuki Hanae plays Gloomy's owner Pitty. Takehiro Kubota (assistant director for ID: INVADED) directed the anime.
