Chained Soldier is an action and fantasy series with ecchi elements. The story is set in Japan where mysterious entrances to another dimension called Mato start popping up everywhere. This brings about a new resource called “Peaches,” which give special abilities only to women. Powerful monsters called Yomotsu Shuuki also exist within this dimension and they are the cause of many disasters. In response to this, an Anti-demon Corps is formed by the government, which is made up of a chosen and elite group of women that have gained power from the Peaches.
The paths of Yuki Wakura and Kyouka Uzen, the chief of the Seventh Unit of the Anti-demon Corps, cross one day when he finds himself lost in an entrance to Mato. Things take a turn though when Kyouka, who recognizes his potential, asks him to join the Anti-demon Corps by becoming her slave.
Mato Seihei no Slave‘s anime is being produced by Seven Arcs (Blue Period, TONIKAWA: Over the Moon For You). The voices of Yuki Wakura and Kyouka Uzen have also been cast and they will be voiced by Yūya Hirose (Yūta Hibiki in SSSS.Gridman) and Akari Kitō (Nezuko Kamado in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba and Kate in Shadows House).
