Composer Kaoru Wada will be part of an online panel to discuss his work on the Inuyasha sequel, Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon. The official Otakon Twitter announced a panel scheduled on August 1, 2020 where Wada will discuss his work on Yashahime. Wada has worked on numerous other anime scores such as D. Gray-man, Ace Attorney, and Inuyasha. So it only seems fitting that the composer for Inuyasha would be working on the sequel anime.

The online panel will be available to watch through the official Otakon Twitch. The official Twitter account also mentioned that all panels will be running live, and they are uncertain if these broadcasts will be archived to watch at a later date. No other information has been disclosed about the upcoming panel featuring Kaoru Wada and his work on Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon.
It was announced in May that Wada would be providing the score for Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon. Inuyasha series creator Rumiko Takahashi will be handling the character designs for Yashahime. A Western localization for the upcoming series was also announced by Viz Media.
Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon will begin its run in Japan in Fall 2020. Viz Media will handle the release of the series in North America and Latin America.
