A character trailer for the Chained Soldier anime was released on November 17, 2023, featuring Akari Kito as Kyouka Uzen. The anime, by studio Seven Arcs, will premiere in January 2024.
This latest Chained Soldier update follows the trailer released at Jump Festa ’23 last year. It was revealed that Tomori Kusunoki, Sayaka Senbongi, and Rina Hidaka had joined the cast as Aoba Wakura, Koko Zenibako, and Naon Yuno, respectively. Kyouka Uzen took center stage in the key visual that was released last month, which featured the rest of the Demon Defense Force.
Chained Soldier is directed by Junji Nishimura (chief director) and Goro Kuji. The series is written by Yasuhiro Nakanishi, Ryota Kano, and Akira Kindaichi, with music by Kohta Yamamoto. The anime was initially supposed to premiere in 2023 but was delayed to January 2024. Chained Soldier adapts Akame ga Kill creator Takahiro’s Mato Seihei no Slave manga published on Shueisha’s Jump+ platform.
Yen Press publishes the manga in English, which is described as:
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?!
