Solo Leveling is a novel series by Chu-Gong, which later received a manhwa adaptation in 2018.
Currently ranked #12 on the MAL Manga list, the manhwa has received critical acclaims all around the world, with ratings ranging between 9 and 10 only.
This overwhelming success has led fans to ask for an anime adaptation for the same. I don’t think the day is far when this collective dream of ours will come true.
Solo Leveling Storyline
For the hardcore fans of manga and manhwa, Solo Leveling isn’t something new, but for those just discovering it, let me explain.
Solo Leveling revolves around the life of a hunter named Sung Jin-Woo. Several portals connecting our world to a world full of monsters and other creatures of all kinds have appeared.
In the process, some people acquired powers and the ability to hunt down the monsters, thus deeming themselves as hunters.
Our protagonist here is the “World’s Weakest Hunter,” barely stronger than a human.
One day, he finds himself and other hunters trapped in a dungeon of extreme dangers and somehow manages to survive. He then turns into a ‘player’ who can see an interface showing him several quests.
Will Solo Leveling Have An Anime?
So far, the news of the anime adaptation of the manhwa has been doing the rounds amongst the fanbase. The possibility of the manhwa turning into an anime is more than ever.
So Solo Leveling might just be over the horizon. The heavens will rumble, quite literally this time.
You can also sign a petition for Solo Leveling to be animated here and then hope for the best!
Solo Leveling Expected Release Date
One can expect Solo Leveling to release sometime in 2021, possibly in the Fall of 2021, only if the manhwa is adapted into an anime this year. It’s just an estimated guess, though.
Solo Leveling Anime Petition
Although the release date of the anime also heavily depends upon the petition that the fans have started.
Some of the fans were so concerned that they made a petition regarding its anime adaptation and started sharing it everywhere. So far, the petition has already exceeded 100,000 signatures.
It’s not a miracle to see such a tremendous response, people have been talking about manhwa adaptations for quite a long time.
There is also this subreddit (r/sololevelling), which started discussing the if’s and how’s of the anime a long time ago.
Solo Leveling Manhwa Season 2
The Chimera Arc just finished, and Sung Jin-Woo was able to defeat the king without using his full strength. The main antagonist seems to be a demon though who is working from the shadows, and he might be the final boss.
Currently, the manhwa is on a break for another month, and season 2 will possibly be returning sometime during May 2020.
We will be moving forward with the introduction of National Level Hunters in season 2 of the manhwa and probably more about Sung Jin-Woo’s dad. The manhwa is enticing and thrilling, and it got all the elements of ‘how to make a reader go crazy.’
So yes, let’s hope for the best, and please Crunchyroll, adapt Solo Leveling ASAP.
