Anilist describes the synopsis 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(s)…?!”
The anime is based on the manga ‘Mato Seihei no Slave’ written by Takahiro and illustrated by Yohei Takemura. It began publication in 2019 through Shonen Jump.
