Anime Review - Yashahime Episode 1 + announcements
Hey there anime fans,  Here is another review, this time, covering Yashahime, the sequel to Inu Yasha.  Brief description of this episode: A mysterious half-demoness princess named Towa Higurashi was captured by a shogunate adviser from Kanto region, who inquires her about some items from the future in his possession, including a book from the Reiwa era and the seat from Kagome's bicycle, but Towa refuses to comply, certain that sharing info from the future will alter the past. The story then shifts back to six months after Kagome started living with Inuyasha and her other closest friends and their young children, two of which are identical twin sisters. Inuyasha and Miroku fight the Root Head, a demon who was sealed by Kikyo many decades ago. Music Credit: Yuki chill DJ

Join HEMAN493 and Steven (Iceslick) as they do the R&R for episode 11 of Danmachi 2: Adventure and the Unknown.  Note:  Sorry about the connection being bad at the end. HEMAN493 had to go outside for a bit and the connection wasn't so good. Anyways, this is what he said if you couldn't hear it so well:  HEMAN493: "Overall, I can't believe they dumped an entire light volume into freaking two episodes, it's pitiful, there's so much content you're missing...I had to watch the episode again to summarize it up. I describe it as freaking horrible....There's a lot of stuff I can't cover it up now, maybe in another time we will definitely cover it up. I am so disappointed...a lot of fans are disappointed as well....very, I better see a better episode 12, can't believe this is the end...I am already going to enjoy this. Thank you for listening to my episode about Danmachi. It was definitely a rant. We are looking forward to watching the next episode of Danmachi and Dr. Stone. This new format we are going with R&R is doing two episodes at once. If you like this format please message us at Amino or Twitter, either of us will moderate and answer your questions.
