Solo Leveling Anime Release Time
Crunchyroll shared news about the Solo Leveling anime during an industry panel, held on Sunday, July 3, at the Anime Expo. The streaming platform announced that A-1 Pictures would be working on the anime adaptation, and it will be released on their service worldwide outside of Asia. Solo Leveling follows young man, Sung Jinwoo, a weak player who lives in a world where humans with magical abilities, known as hunters, fight monsters and conquer dungeons to protect mankind as they know it.
When Jinwoo survives a near-fatal battle, he is chosen by a program called “the System,” which gives him the ability to level up exponentially with no known limit and leads him on a quest to discover the extent of his new powers.
An official release date hasn’t been given, but it’s currently slated to come out sometime in 2023. A teaser trailer for the anime was released by Crunchyroll at Anime Expo, and it shared a brief glimpse of the adaptation. Daggers up, hunters! The hit manhwa Solo Leveling is finally getting an anime adaptation. Unlike the destined power fantasies of Goku and Naruto, Solo Leveling tells the story of a lowly hunter named Jin-woo who accidentally finds a new source of power during a failed dungeon run.
Here’s everything you need to know about the Solo Leveling anime, including its story, VA cast, release date, and status of the manhwa. Solo Leveling is a Korean web novel series written by Chu-gong and illustrated by Jang “Dubu” Sang-rak of Redice Studio. The story takes place in present-day Korea with MMORPG elements.
Humans who possess magical powers can take on the job of a hunter, a person who enters gates to another dimension to slay monsters and bosses. If the hunting party clears out the gate’s dungeon, their rewards can be used as money in the real world. The main character, Sung Jin-woo, is known as the world’s weakest hunter. Despite such a reputation, he continues to participate in dungeon raids as a way to pay for his mother’s hospital bills.
During a double-dungeon run, Jin-woo sacrifices himself to allow the rest of his party to escape. On the verge of dying, the hunter accidentally completes a hidden quest and becomes a “player”, a special role that allows him to complete quests and level up by himself through a game-like system.
