The official YouTube channel of Warner Bros. Japan has streamed on Sunday an announcement video for the TV anime adaptation reveal of Mato Sato and Nilitsu's "The Executioner and Her Way of Life (Shokei Shōjo no Virgin Road)" light novel series.

The main two cast members was announced which includes Iori Saeki as Menou, and Moeka Kishimoto as Akari. No other details were revealed as of writing.

The series is based on the Japanese fantasy light novel series written by Mato Sato and illustrated by Nilitsu. It has been collected into 4 volumes as of August 2020 by SB Creative in their GA Bunko imprint with the fifth volume releasing on February 10, 2021.


It was adapted into a manga series by Ryo Mitsuya and was serialized in Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine since June 2020.

English publisher Yen Press describes the series as:

The Lost Ones are wanderers who come here from a distant world known as "Japan." No one knows how or why they leave their homes. The only thing that is certain is that they bring disaster and calamity. The duty of exterminating them without remorse falls to Menou, a young Executioner. When she meets Akari, it seems like just another job...until she discovers it's impossible to kill this girl! And when Menou begins to search for a way to defeat this immortality, Akari is more than happy to tag along! So begins a journey that will change Menou forever... In addition to being an intriguing addition to the ever popular isekai genre of light novels, Virgin Road is an intriguing release due to the fact that it includes elements not commonly seen in light novels released in English—a female protagonist and a yuri storyline.
