The demon princesses are returning after a one-week break and are ready to deal with the falling Grim comet in "Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon" Episode 44. The new episode is called "When the Grim Comet Falls."

The official Twitter account of the anime has shared stills and a brief summary of the upcoming episode. The spoilers tease that the Half-Demon Princesses and Osamu Kirin will confront the approaching Grim comet in the present age.

Inuyasha, Kagome and the others are fighting in the Warring States period.

In the previous episode, Osamu was shown hunting demons in the shadows. However, he could sense the arrival of more demons with each passing day.

He wondered if the Grim comet was behind the sudden surge of demonic activities. He was certain about the presence of Grim comet's fragrance.

"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," read the official synopsis of "Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon," according to Crunchyroll.

"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," the synopsis continued.
