It’s been over a decade for the reason that sudden look of the “gates”—the paths that join our world with a unique dimension. Since then, sure people have woke up to supernatural powers. We name these people “hunters.” Hunters make their dwelling by utilizing their powers to beat dungeons contained in the gates. In this world of robust clients, the low-ranked hunter Jinwoo Sung is named “the weakest hunter of all mankind.” One day, Jinwoo will get fatally injured when he runs into high-rank double dungeons hidden inside a low-rank dungeon. Just then, a mysterious quest window seems in entrance of him. On the verge of dying, Jinwoo decides to simply accept the hunt and begins leveling up… whereas the others aren’t.
Original manhwa writer Chugong stated, “About six years ago when I was writing the very beginning of Solo Leveling, if someone had said to me, ‘The novel you wrote will become a comic,’ I bet I’d have told them to stop pulling my leg. But now, I’m told that it’ll be animated?! Seriously, stop pulling my leg!… But these days, I’m feeling excited and thrilled. Since I’m still half-doubting that this is real, I want to see Jinwoo and the other characters get animated soon and feel relieved. I’ll keep working diligently while looking forward to that day.”
Series illustrator DUBU stated, “Solo Leveling is finally making its anime debut. It feels like only yesterday that we got the offer for the anime adaptation. I feel so overwhelmed when I think that the anime is really being created right now. This is all thanks to you fans who love and support Solo Leveling. I’m filled with gratitude. Thank you very much. Also, please support the animation production team. If this anime gives new enjoyment to the readers, I’ll be very happy.”
