‘Shokei Shoujo no Virgin Road’ is a Japanese manga written by Mato Sato, illustrated by Ryo Mitsuya, and published by Square Enix. It was picked up for an English translation through Yen Press, who published it as ‘The Executioner and Her Way of Life.’
The Japanese animation production company JC Staff picked up the show for an anime adaption. Crunchyroll reports that Iori Saeki will voice Menou with Moe Kahara voicing Akari Tokitō. Yoshiki Kawasaki will serve as the director.
They also released a teaser trailer to go along with the announcement:
Wikipedia describes the synopsis as follows, “Long ago, wanderers, who are called as “Lost Ones,” came from an alternative world known as “Japan” and were given power named “Pure Concept.” They created an advanced civilization with the supernatural force, and the whole world ended up using Japanese as the only language. Nevertheless, the power of “Pure Concept” lost control and brought disaster and calamity to the world. Among those disasters, there are four legendary disasters – Sword of Salt, which turned the whole western continent into salt which melted in the sea; the Pandemonium, which covers the southern archipelago; the Mechanical Society, which controls the Wild Frontier in the east; and the Starhusk, which carved out the center of the northern continent and set it afloat. Those are called “Human Errors” and still impact the world after thousands of years. Since then, Lost Ones, who still arrive in the world from time to time, are treated as a taboo.”
They continue, “Menou is an Executioner and is responsible for eliminating Lost Ones. She attempts to kill Akari Tokitō, a Lost One, but fails to do so. Akari has the Pure Concept of Time and is capable to reverse her death after she has been killed. Menou has to find a way to kill her and has no choice but to stay with Akari.”
The show is produced by Egg Firm and SB Creative with the music will be composed by Michiru.
