Half human, half demon--a hanyo (半妖) is the result of a union between a yokai (demon) and a human. It is said that Rumiko Takahashi, the author of Inuyasha, is the one who created the term and the concept is now deeply rooted in the world of 2D. When we watch a character who has the powers and features of a youkai struggle to overcome the obstacles that are resulted from their roots and grow in the process, we can't help but want to cheer for them.
Today we are featuring illustrations of hanyo. Enjoy!
