[Mili (Opening theme song)]
This is “Mili”, the opening theme for “The Executioner’s Way of Life (Virgin Road)”.
There are various cities, terrains, and cultures in the world of “The Executioner’s Way of Life (Virgin Road)”, and I wrote a song while imagining the way of life of agate who keep order as executioners in such a complicated world. rice field.
I don’t know if this tokimeki is friendship, affection, or hope in the future, but he just wants to walk with you. I want to be next to you. I put that feeling into the song.
Beautiful pictures, lively animations, healing voices and exciting music.
Please watch the anime “The Executioner’s Way”! Thank you for being “Mili”.
[ChouCho (ending theme song)]
I read the original when I made the song, but when I became more and more drawn to the unique world view and the fun of the story unfolded by the attractive characters, I finished reading it in a blink of an eye. ..
I wanted to express the unique darkness of the work and the size of the scale in the music, so I aimed for a delicate and profound sound.
I’m really looking forward to the start of the broadcast to see how this ED theme will flow after the story.

A “lost person” who once visited from Japan and caused a catastrophe to the world. They were “contraindicated” because they had caused disasters that would destroy the world in the past, and they had to be executed unknowingly. One day, Menou, an executioner whose livelihood is the execution of a lost person, meets a Japanese girl, Akari. She tries to carry out her mission as usual, but Agate’s “certain ability” causes her to fail. To ensure the execution of Akari, Agate takes her to Garum’s cathedral, where there is a ceremonial hall where any stranger can be annihilated. Something began to change in the agate to her purely enjoyable appearance, not knowing that she was traveling to be killed.
