Solo Leveling Drops Intense First Teaser for Anime Series

The acclaimed South Korean web novel and webtoon series Solo Leveling reveals a first look at its long-awaited anime adaptation.

The first teaser trailer for the anime adaptation of Solo Leveling has been revealed.

Crunchyroll confirmed that the popular web novel and webtoon series will finally receive an animated adaptation. The new series is being produced by A-1 Productions, the animation studio behind Fairy TailSword Art Online and The Seven Deadly Sins. The music for the new series will be composed by the legendary Hiroyuki Sawano, who previously created the scores for Attack on Titan and Mobile Suit Gundam: Unicorn. Crunchyroll is co-producing the series, which is scheduled to premiere sometime in 2023.

In a statment, Solo Leveling‘s original author, Chugong, expressed some disbelief at the news that their work was being adapted into an anime. “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!,” Chugong joked, adding, “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. (lol)”

The series’ original illustrator, DUBU, also released a statement, alongside new art. “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,” they said.

Set in a world where humanity is protected from constant attacks by deadly monsters by professional warriors known as hunters, Solo Leveling tells the story of Sung Jinwoo, a young man who has a reputation for being the weakest and most useless hunter. Things change for Jinwoo when he discovers a program called System, which allows him to level-up his abilities beyond what was previously thought possible. Wielding his newfound strength, Jinwoo sets out to defeat more monsters and unravel the mystery surrounding System and his new powers.

The Solo Leveling webtoon is available in English from Tapas. The series concluded earlier this year with the publication of its 179th chapter.
