The Chained Soldier dark fantasy action anime has received a character trailer of its protagonist Yuki Wakura, previewing his life as the caretaker of the Demon Defense Force as well as his transformation ability.

Chained Soldier is set to begin airing in January 2024. HIDIVE has licensed the anime and is premiering its first two episodes on November 17, 2023 at Anime NYC. The show is based on the Shueisha-published manga series by Takahiro and Youhei Takemura, which began serialization on Shonen Jump+ in 2019 and has 14 tankoubon volumes as of October 2023.

HIDIVE describes the anime’s plot as: 

Two supernatural forces appeared simultaneously on Earth: entrances to another dimension known as Mato, and Peaches, resources that give unique abilities to women. From the Mato come Yomotsu Shuuki, dangerous monsters that leave destruction in their wake. The government’s Anti-demon Corps stands against these creatures, employing women empowered by Peaches to face the monstrous threat. Yuuki Wakura watches these forces clash from a distance, but when he unexpectedly runs afoul of a Yomotsu Shuuki, he’s rescued by Kyouka Uzen, the chief of the Seventh Unit of the Anti-demon Corp—and she sees something in him that could turn the tide of the monster incursion. Yuki holds the unique power to make Peaches more effective, but he’ll have to become Kyoka’s willing slave to join the fight against the Yomotsu Shuuki and save the world.

Yen Press publishes the manga in English.
