The Solo Leveling anime has been announced, following the story of Sung Jinwoo as he navigates the world of hunters. Here’s everything currently known about the new anime, including the rumored release date, cast, plot, and more.

Solo Leveling is a hit manhwa based on a novel. During its run, it was easily the most popular manhwa, or Korean comic, of its time, garnering a global audience that eagerly awaited its weekly release. The basic story follows a hunter, Sung Jinwoo, who becomes the main overpowered protagonist of the series.

A-1 Studios took it upon themselves to animate the series as it snowballed after the manhwa’s success. This is the same studio responsible for Black Butler II, Sword Art Online, and even Kaguya-sama Love is War. They primarily tackle Japanese titles, so making the commitment to Solo Leveling a bit of a surprise.

Release Date Rumors

As of now, there is no official release date. It has been confirmed that it will be released in 2023, but the exact date has not been revealed yet. The animation studio is also handling Nier: Automata Ver1.1a, which is an anime adaptation based on the video game, which will be released in January.

Therefore, it is unlikely that Solo Leveling will release at the beginning of the year, as the studio will be busy with its other major project. The Solo Leveling anime release date will likely be mid to late 2023 as a result.

This part is a bit interesting since A-1 studios is primarily a Japanese studio and usually handles Japanese voice casts. Solo Leveling is a Korean title, so it is likely that they will have to find a new cast from their typical voice actors and actresses.

As of now, there has been no confirmation of the voice cast. They are probably still securing talent for this, since they can’t just rely on their previous connections. The trailer they released confirms that the anime will be in Korean, although a Japanese and English dub is also likely.


The plot is pretty predetermined since it is based on a manhwa and a novel that has already ended. Therefore, for those who really want to know the plot, check out the manhwa or novel. The manhwa is 179 chapters, and the novel is 270 chapters.

For those who don’t want heavy spoilers, the story is essentially an overpowered protagonist in a fantasy world.

Korean manhwa has a real-life video game trope, somewhat similar to the progression system found in the Japanese anime genre Isekai. But instead of being sent to another world, their original world is one where video game logic only makes sense. And for Solo Leveling, they exist in a universe where these warriors are called hunters.
