Ordinary citizens of the world remain unaware as the Grim Comet is about to crash and destroy the planet in "Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon" Episode 44. The new episode is titled "When the Grim Comet Falls."

Normal humans can’t see the Grim Comet and that’s why they are calm. However, Osamu Kirin, Moroha, Towa and Setsuna can see the approaching comet.

The official promo trailer of "Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon" Episode 44 shows Osamu introducing himself as a mild-mannered middle-school teacher.

However, in the present day, he is also living the secret life of a demon slayer. He is the former right arm of the Beast King of Japan, Kirinmaru. And he is into killing demons when he is not teaching little ones.

The trailer shows Osamu heading straight into the comet. Can Moroha, Setsuna and Towa stop the comet from annihilating humankind?
