“Shokei Shoujo no Ikiru Michi ~VIRGIN ROAD~” is set in a parallel world that is similar to our own, however, in this world “Strays” exist. “Strays” were responsible for great disasters in the past so upon being spotted, they are meant to be killed by “Executioners”. The “Executioner” Menou meets a “Stray” named Akari, who she kills on sight — however, Akari comes back to life. Searching for a way to truly eliminate the Stray, Menou’s life becomes intertwined with Akari’s.
