The Spring Anime 2022 has been taken over by a lot of isekai anime that such genre has the most number of shows on the slate. One of those is The Executioner and Her Way of Life which takes a different spin on the topic from the yuri light novel series. Here is our review of The Executioner and Her Way of Life.
Is The Executioner and Her Way of Life Good? Our Review
The Executioner and Her Way of Life follows Menou, an executioner, who has to eliminate the Lost Ones, those who are from an alternate world with powers called Pure Concept.
Menou is supposed to kill Akari, however, she is almost invincible given that she has the Pure Concept of Time and she can reverse her death even after being killed. Menou has to stay with her to find a way to eliminate Akari.
The Executioner and Her Way of Life is based on a Japanese yuri light novel series with the words of Mato Sato and the illustrations of Nilitsu. There is also a manga adaptation of the same name with the illustrations of Ryo Mitsuya.
The anime of The Executioner and Her Way of Life made its way to the small screens last April 2, 2022, on AT-X, Tokyo MX, and BS11. The show releases weekly on HIDIVE for those with a membership on the streaming platform.
All in all, The Executioner and Her Way of Life took a different spin on an isekai anime. Instead of the main character being teleported into another realm, it is the target of the protagonist who is from a different world.
The anime deals with “pure concept,” an interesting term for powers and with Akari as one who has the Pure Concept of Time, they did good in making this a dilemma for Menou as she finds a way to kill her target.
However, this is where the anime show falls back. Menou is not much of a likable person to be the main protagonist. It became sloppy in terms of her narrative on whether she would like Akari or not because Akari is her target in the first place.
It’s fine but it did not really excel that much. Isekai anime shows are all around and The Executioner and Her Way of Life fell short as it did not really stand out besides having a different take on isekai.
