Passione will be in charge of Mato Seihei no Slave

During the Anime Expo 2024 event, producer Yuki Watanabe (Pony Canyon) revealed that the second season of the anime adaptation of "Mato Seihei no Slave (Chained Soldier)" will be produced by Passione studios. It should be noted that the first season was produced by Seven Arcs and did not receive bad reviews, so this change of studio is really a surprise.

Surely you have heard of Passione, a studio that has made popular productions of erotic anime such as "High School DxD Hero", "Isekai Meikyuu de Harem wo (Harem in the Labyrinth of Another World)" and "Ishuzoku Reviewers (Interspecies Reviewers)", to name a few.

The full interview was as follows:

  • How is the production of the second season going?Yuya Hirose: "We have started to dub the scenes. New characters appear in the second season. Even compared to the first season, it's drawn in a sexier and more suggestive way."
  • When is it released?
  • Yuki Watanabe: "For the first season, we made you wait quite a while, so we want to do this as quickly as possible for you. At this time, we can't say a date."
  • Summarize the program in 3 sentences.
  • Yuya Hirose: "First, the protagonist is a boy and he's very cool. She has a great voice! Aside from the sexy scenes, the battle scenes are great. It doesn't matter if you're a man or a woman, you'll love it."
  • Who will work on the second season?
  • Yuki Watanabe: "The second season will be drawn by Passione. They draw the characters very well. For the second season we have new characters with battle scenes and rewards. I hope everyone sees it and enjoys it."

Synopsis of Mato Seihei no Slave

When entrances to a different dimension known as the "Mato" spring up all over Japan, a new resource known as "Peaches" is discovered that grants unique abilities only to women. However, dangerous monsters called "Yomotsu Shuuki" also roam the Mato and are responsible for several disasters since then. To combat them, the government formed the Anti-Demon Corps, an elite group of women who have been given power by the Peaches.

One day, a high school student named Yuuki Wakura was returning home from school when he suddenly gets lost in an entrance to the Mato. When he calls for help, he is immediately rescued by Kyouka Uzen, the head of the Seventh Unit of the Anti-Demon Corps. Recognizing his potential and needing it as well to make his Peaches power more effective, he asks Yuuki to join the Anti-Demon Corps by becoming his slave, a position he might find more enjoyable than he initially thought...
