Now, she is going to Saint Gabriel Academy, which is an all-girls school.

He was separated from his twin brother, Towa, at the age of 4. 10 years later, he traveled to modern times together with Moroha, and was reunited with Towa. However, he has no memory of his childhood because his sleep was stolen by the dreaming butterfly. He couldn’t believe that Towa was his older sister. Together with Towa and Moroha, who are trying to get Setsuna back to sleep, she travels back to the Sengoku period, but… Her calm and composed nature probably stems from her father, Sesshomaru.

By applying lipstick on a seashell with red pearls on it, she transforms into “Kunikuzushi no Beniyasha” and throws a tantrum.

Anime Hanyou no Yashahime: Sengoku Otogizoushi can be an option for those of you who like anime with the action-adventure genre. The story of Towa’s journey to find his missing sister must get a pretty harsh reality.
In terms of story and video quality, the Hanyou no Yashahime: Sengoku Otogizoushi anime is already very good, especially since this anime is released in 2020. I highly recommend this anime to be made on a watch list in the fall 2020 season. Especially for those of you who like action anime, the Hanyou no Yashahime: Sengoku Otogizoushi anime is highly recommended.
Hanyou no Yashahime: Sengoku Otogizoushi is an original anime produced by studio Sunrise. This anime is currently airing since October 3, 2020, the number of episodes is still unknown. Hopefully, it will get as many episodes as possible.
