Yen Press released the novels under the title Virgin road in English, and it describes the story:
The Lost Ones are vagrants who come here from a far away world known as “Japan”. No one knows how or why they leave their home. The only thing that is certain is that they bring disaster and calamity. The duty to exterminate them without remorse falls on Menou, a young executioner. When she meets Akari, it feels like another job … until she finds out it’s impossible to kill this girl! And when Menou begins to search for a way to overcome this immortality, Akari is more than happy to accompany him! So begins a journey that will change Menou forever … As well as being an intriguing addition to the ever popular genre of isekai light novels, Virgin road is an intriguing version due to the fact that it includes elements not commonly seen in light novels published in English – a female protagonist and a yuri script.
SB Creative published the first volume of the novels in July 2019, and the fifth volume shipped on February 10. The sixth volume will debut on August 15. The novels won the grand prize at GA Bunko Awards in 2018. Ryu Mitsuya launched a manga adaptation of the novels in Square Enix‘s Young Gangan magazine last June.
