Sentai Filmworks has announced that it has acquired the exclusive global rights (excluding Asia) to the fantasy series The Executioner and Her Way of Life, based on the award-winning yuri light novel by Mato Sato.

When interdimensional travelers from an otherworldly land known as “Japan” appear, they often bring death and destruction. It’s up to Executioners like Menou to track and exterminate the Lost Ones before they wreak havoc. When Menou encounters a beguiling Lost One named Akari, it’s bloody business as usual… until Menou discovers Akari can cheat death, that is. Even so, Menou has a job to do, and she is committed to her executioner’s mission come hell or high water — provided her newly stirring feelings don’t get in the way.

Produced by J.C.Staff, the series is directed by Yoshiki Kawasaki with series composition from Shogo Yasukawa. Michiru provides the series’ musical score. Mili performs the OP, “Paper Bouquet,” while ChouChou sings the ending theme, “Touka Serenade.”

The series stars Iori Saeki as Menou and Moe Kahara as Akari Tokito. The Executioner and Her Way of Life light novel was awarded the grand prize at the GA Bunko Awards in 2018. The light novel series is published in English by Yen Press.

Sentai will stream The Executioner and Her Way of Life anime exclusively on HIDIVE, its direct-to-consumer streaming service, with a home video release to follow.
