The Jump Festa '24 event on Sunday revealed a new promotional video for the television anime of writer Takahiro and artist Yōhei Takemura's Chained Soldier (Mato Seihei no Slave or literally, Slave of the Magic Capital's Elite Troops) manga. The video previews Akari Kitō's opening theme song "Yume no Ito" (String of Dreams).

The anime will premiere in Japan on January 4. The show will air on AT-X, Tokyo MX, BS-Asahi, and MBS. The series was previously slated to premiere this year.

HIDIVE will stream the anime as it airs. The Anime NYC event screened the North American premiere of the anime on November 17.

The anime stars:

The battle fantasy is set in a world where a demonic gate has unleashed monsters known as Shūki. A special peach tree is able to give special powers, but only to women. The story begins when a down-on-his-luck boy named Yūki Wakura meets Uzen Kyōka, a girl who has gained the power of the peach, and is the captain of the 7th Anti-Demon Squad.

Junji Nishimura (Ranma ½) is the anime's general director. Gorō Kuji (Bungo and Alchemist -Gears of Judgement-) is directing the anime at Seven Arcs (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, White Album, Trinity Seven). Yasuhiro Nakanishi (Kaguya-sama: Love is War) is handling the series composition, and Ryōta Kanō and Akira Kindaichi (Bakugan Battle Planet) are writing the script. Hiroyuki Yoshii (Tawawa on Monday) is designing the characters. Kaoru Nishimura (Trinity Seven: Eternal Library & Alchemic Girl) is in charge of color design. Kohta Yamamoto (Attack on Titan The Final Season) is composing the music, and Chikako Yokota (The Seven Deadly Sins: Imperial Wrath of The Gods) is directing the sound.

Akari Kitō is performing the anime's opening theme song "Yume no Ito" (String of Dreams). Maaya Uchida is performing the ending theme song "CHA∞IN."

Takahiro (Akame ga KILL!) and Takemura (Papa no Iu Koto o Kikinasai! manga) launched the manga on Shueisha's Shonen Jump+ manga website in January 2019.
