Hunters, raise your daggers! The popular manhwa Solo Leveling is receiving an anime adaptation.
Unlike Goku and Naruto’s predestined power dreams, Solo Leveling depicts the narrative of Jin-woo, a humble hunter who discovers a new source of strength by accident after an unsuccessful dungeon run.
The anime announcement has both fans and beginners thrilled, making Solo Leveling one of the most anticipated anime to debut on Crunchyroll next year; however, there are other reasons anime viewers should keep an eye on Solo Leveling.
The production will be directed by various well-known personalities, including one of the biggest names in anime music history.
Here’s all you need to know about the Solo Leveling anime, including its plot, voice actors, release date, and manhwa status.
1. Release date of Solo Leveling anime

2.What is Solo Leveling all about?
Solo Leveling is a Korean web novel series authored by Chu-gong and drawn by Redice Studio’s Jang “Dubu” Sang-rak. The narrative is set in modern-day Korea and includes MMORPG aspects.
Humans with magical abilities can become hunters, entering portals to another realm to battle creatures and bosses. If the hunting party clears out the gate’s dungeon, their prizes can be spent in the real world.
Sung Jin-woo, the main character, is renowned as the world’s weakest hunter. Despite his bad reputation, he still participates in dungeon raids to help pay for his mother’s healthcare fees.
Jin-woo sacrifices himself during a double-dungeon run to allow the rest of his party to escape. On the verge of death, the hunter unintentionally completes a hidden quest and is transformed into a “player,” a particular role that allows him to complete quests and level up on his own using a game-like system.
