Chained Soldier, known in Japan as Mato Seihei no Slave (Japanese: 魔都精兵のスレイブ, Hepburn: Mato Seihei no Sureibu, lit.'Slave of the Magic Capital's Elite Troops'), is a Japanese manga series written by Takahiro and illustrated by Yohei Takemura. It has been serialized on Shueisha's Shōnen Jump+ online platform since January 2019. The series follows a young man named Yuuki Wakura, who watches as destructive monsters from the Mato dimension threaten the Earth, while women gifted with special superpowers consumed from Peaches try to stop them as Yuuki begins to join forces with Chief Kyouka Uzen as his servant both on the battlefield and at home.

An anime television series adaptation, animated by Seven Arcs, aired from January to March 2024. A second season, animated by Passione, has been announced. The series is licensed for English release by Sentai Filmworks.

Plot

[edit]

Gates to another dimension, called Mato, begin opening across Japan, where monsters known as Shuuki begin attacking the inhabitants of the Earth. Inside these portals are a resource called a "Peach", which, when consumed by women, give them supernatural powers, leading to a matriarchal society. One day, Yuuki Wakura, a recent high school graduate, stumbles inside a gate and meets Kyouka Uzen, the commander of the 7th squad of the Demon Defense Force. Kyouka has the power to "enslave" Shuuki and mount them for combat, but cornered by an increasing number of Shuuki, she asks Yuuki if she can enslave him. He consents and turns into her "slave", and they defeat the Shuuki. However, in exchange for using his body, she must give him an appropriate reward, often extremely sexual in nature. Yuuki is left disturbed by this "reward", but begrudgingly decides to go along with it. Yuuki decides to join Kyouka's squad as a caretaker and support her dream of becoming the Supreme Commander, while fighting the Shuuki and discovering the mystery behind Mato.

Yuuki Wakura (和倉 優希, Wakura Yūki)

The protagonist who serves as the dorm manager. He was previously a third-year high school student, but enters the demon capital after entering a gate that appeared.

She rescued Yuuki after he arrived in the other dimension. She was the only survivor of an incident.
