Could Chu-Gong’s Solo Leveling receive an anime adaptation? Will we finally be able to see Sung Jin-Woo’s journey from an E rank hunter to an S rank, and maybe more, animated?
Will this series become the next most popular adaptation of the season like Tower Of God? All your answers are down below!
1. Is there a Solo Leveling anime?
Solo Leveling manhwa webtoon is expected to get an anime adaptation to be released in the Fall of 2021. Change.org petition for Solo Leveling anime began a while ago and now has 144,000 signs out of 150,000. A trailer for Solo Leveling season 1 has also surfaced.
With a fully completed web novel and a 100+ chapter manhwa, i.e., enough source material, fans worldwide are desperately hoping for Solo Leveling to hit the screens.
2. What is Solo Leveling about?
Portals with monsters have started appearing on Planet Earth. The Hunters (people who obtained mysterious powers after invasion) are part of several guilds that deal with cleaning and closing these portals. This action can only be accomplished by knocking down the final boss.
If they fail, the portals will eventually open up, allowing monsters to massacre humans. Sung Jin-Woo is known as and quite literally is the weakest hunter in the world.
But one day, after completing a quest present in a terrifying dungeon, he acquires the unique ability to be able to “level up” and becomes a player. The only way to fulfill all his goals is to become a powerful hunter. Will he succeed with the help of this new system?
3. Is Solo Leveling anime cancelled?
Since the webtoon of Tower of God has been animated, it wouldn’t be a stretch to imagine Solo Leveling receiving similar treatment.
Fans are still looking forward to the announcement of the anime adaptation of Solo leveling. When Webtoons released a Solo Leveling trailer hinting at the manhwa being adapted into an anime, it seemed like the anime adaptation may be just over the horizon. But unfortunately, no official news regarding it has been released yet.
Many fans believe that because of the portrayal of Japan in a negative light in the manhwa and web novel, the chances of it being adapted into an anime has decreased significantly.
Nevertheless, with a gigantic fanbase spreading worldwide, they have taken things into their own hands. They have started a petition asking Netflix to adapt the manhwa into an anime. More than 120,000+ signatures have been collected so far, and only a total of 35,000 more are needed for anime studios and Netflix to consider the petition.
So, if you have not signed the Solo Leveling anime adaptation petition yet, make sure to head over to Change.org and sign the petition.
