The original Chained Soldier manga is serialized in Japan by Shueisha in their Shonen Jump+ digital manga magazine, and an English language version is also published by Yen Press, who describe the story of the series as follows:


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?!


A key visual for the upcoming Chained Soldier TV anime featuring the main character Yuuki Wakura (in beast form) being ridden by Kyouka Uzen who brandishes a sword and steers Yuuki by means of a chain attached to a spiked collar around his monstrous neck.
