Chained Soldier (Mato Seihei no Slave) is a Japanese manga series by Takahiro, who is also famous for creating Akame Ga Kill!. Shueisha has been serializing it with Yohei Takemura as the illustrator on Shonen Jump+ since 2019, and it currently has 10 volumes available. Yen Press is publishing the manga series in English:
Decades ago, gates to an otherworldly and dangerous dimension known as Mato—the “Demon City”—appeared across Japan. Those who partook in the “peaches” growing there gained unique abilities—but only if they’re girls. When down-in-the-dumps high school boy Yuuki Wakura finds himself caught up in a gate, he’s saved by Kyouka Uzen, the beautiful commander of the 7th squad of the Demon Defense Force, who…orders him to become her slave?!
