Richard Ian Cox and Kira Tozer to return as Inuyasha and Kagome in Yashahime: Half-Demon Princess dub

Fans of the Inuyasha English dub can finally rest easy. Viz announced in a Twitter post on Tuesday that most of the cast from Inuyasha and Inuyasha: Final Act will be returning for Yashahime: Half-Demon Princess.

Reprising their roles are:

Richard Ian Cox as Inuyasha
Kira Tozer as Kagome
David Kaye as Sesshomaru
Jillian Michaels as Shippo
Kelly Sheridan as Sango
Kirby Marrow as Miroku

Stepping into new roles are:

Alan Lee as Kohaku
Aleks Lee as Hisui

Kira Tozer previously replaced Moneca Stori as Kagome in Final Act. David Kaye’s role as Sesshomaru was replaced by Michael Daingerfield. This will be Kaye’s first time playing the character since the original series.

Alan Lee is new to the role of Kohaku. He was played by Aidan Drummond in the previous two series. This change arguably makes sense because Kohaku would have gone through puberty before the start of Yashahime. It’s unknown if he was offered the role for Yashahime.

The voice actor for Kaede has not been revealed yet. She was played by Pam Hyatt in Inuyasha and Linda Darlow in Final Act.

Funimation announced the actors for the roles of the three leads last week:

Erica Mendez as Towa Higurashi
Kira Buckland as Setsuna
Morgan Berry as Moroha

New episodes of Yashahime are available subtitled on Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Hulu every Saturday. There is still no information on a premiere for the dub.
