The Chained Soldier anime will have a second season. The announcement includes an announcement trailer and a commemoration visual featuring Kana Hanazawa‘s Ren Yamashiro, the head of the Demon Defense Force and its 10th unit.

Chained Soldier premiered in January and ran for a cour. The anime is an adaptation of the Shueisha-published dark fantasy ecchi action manga series written by Takahiro and drawn by Youhei Takemura, which began serialization on Shonen Jump+ in 2019 and has 15 tankoubon volumes as of February 2024. 

Yen Press describes the manga 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?!

Season 1 was directed by Goro Kuji (Bungo to Alchemist assistant director) at SevenArcs. The other main staff include:

• Chief director: Junji Nishimura (Vlad Love director)
• Character designer: Hiroyuki Yoshii (Just Because!)
• Series composer: Yasuhiro Nakanishi (A Couple of Cuckoos)
• Music composer: KOHTA YAMAMOTO (Attack on Titan Final Season co-composer)
