The Executioner and Her Way of Life is based on the light novel series by Satou Mato and illustrated by Niritsu. It is published under the GA Bunko label. The series began in 2019 and has six volumes as of August 2021. It has inspired a manga adaptation.

Warner Bros. Japan describes the story as: 

Once upon a time, the world was thrown into chaos by The Lost Ones” — people from another world with special powers known.

To maintain peace, “The Executioners” are ordered to kill “The Lost Ones”  without mercy.

This is the story of an unlikely pair: the Executioner Menou, who tries to be pure, honest, and carry out her mission — and “The Lost One” Akari, who is impossible to kill.
