If you’re wondering when the solo leveling anime is coming out, we have the solution for you.
Solo Leveling Season 1 Release Date
‘Solo Leveling’ is a Manhwa series written by Chugong and illustrated by Jang Sung-rak (or Dubu). The first issue was published on March 4, 2018 on KakaoPage. Exactly two years later, on March 19, 2020, the first season of Manhwa ended. Season 2 began to appear on August 1, 2020. The series originally began as a South Korean web novel written by Chugong in July 2016. It is now one of the most popular Manhwa series in the world. The fans have translated the Manhwa into several languages. As for a solo leveling anime, here’s what we know.
So far there is no official statement that confirms or denies the development of a solo leveling anime. However, the massive popularity of the source material has ensured that interest in an anime will also be great. Fans have spoken out on various social media platforms to speculate about a possible anime adaptation. There’s even a Change.org petition asking Netflix to do the adaptation. By the summer of 2021 she had already collected over 200,000 signatures.
Tower of God, Noblesse and The God of High School are some of the well-known Manhwa series that have been implemented as anime. It is reported that a drama and game will be developed using the Manhwa as the source material, and an anime adaptation should not be long in coming. If the development of the anime is announced in the next few months, the release of Solo Leveling Season 1 is expected in 2022.
Solo Leveling Season 1 Spoiler
In Season 1, we could see Sung Jin-Woo transform from the weakest hunter to the strongest. Initially, he and other weak hunters may raid low-level dungeons. During one of his excursions, he and his comrades could find themselves in a double hiding place. Jin-Woo could sacrifice himself in the fight between the hunters and the boss of the second cave. This will likely earn him player status and access to the quest book.
He might later wake up in a hospital to discover that any critical injuries he received while fighting in the dungeon were somehow miraculously healed. The quest log could start giving him daily quests so his level of play could improve. The anime is likely to establish the strong bond that Jin-Woo has with his sister and mother. At some point, solo leveling could introduce Cha Hae-In, a potential love interest for Jin-Woo.
