Many popular Korean Manhwa like Tower Of God, The God of High School have already been adapted into anime. So, an anime adaptation of Solo Leveling looks pretty much on cards. Moreover, the popularity of the manhwa is one of the driving factors. With a live-action movie and a video game already being announced, it’s only a matter of time before the anime adaptation gets into production.

Solo Leveling anime release date

As of today (Jan 27, 2022), we still haven’t got any official news about Solo Leveling anime. But we are pretty sure as per our sources have confirmed that we will get Solo Leveling anime in future. Some sources have revealed that the work on the anime adaptation is under process in the background.

There have been assumptions on the basis of leaks. One of the leaks was recently discovered on Weibo, the Chinese social network site. It disclosed that the Solo Leveling anime is in production by Gi So-Ryeong and Jang Sung-Rak.

If the anime is announced early next year (2022) then expect it to be on our TV screens in 2023. D&C Media even released a Solo Leveling trailer which signifies that we will get an anime adaptation sooner or later. You can watch the trailer right here:

Solo Leveling Plot

Solo Leveling has a very ongoing and promising storyline. The story revolves around a very weak hunter, Sung Jin-Woo who struggles and become an S-rank hunter with ultimate powers. After some days, Jin-Woo flounders into a D-rank dungeon which seems to be much stronger though.

Here, Jin-Woo is ready to accept death standing in front of him. Then comes the best part, he doesn’t get death, rather a mysterious power due to which he can see a quest log, same as games. Just like in the games, he can complete quests and become stronger along with the increase in his rank.

With increasing ranks and powers, the whole world wants him but he himself wants to be a Solo Leveler only. That’s his legacy. The anime would really be too exciting and promising to watch. We would recommend you to read the manga or manhwa if you can’t wait for anime.

How many episodes would the anime comprise?

Fans are also eagerly waiting to know how many episodes would the Solo Leveling anime adaptation have? As per the sources, the first season of Solo Leveling anime would have 12 episodes and it would soon release a season 2 for the other episodes.

Well, the sources also say that the first season of anime would comprise 24 episodes and the rest of the episode would be taken in the second season of anime adapted from the manhwa. However, we cannot predict everything on our own. This is what our sources say and for official information, we would have to wait.

Controversy related to Solo Leveling franchise

The Solo Leveling franchise has been in controversy due to the portrayal of Japan in a negative light in the manhwa and web novel. Fans believe that because of this reason the chances of getting an anime adaptation have declined. However, the fans are trying their best to convince big companies like Netflix to adapt the manhwa into anime.


It has not been officially confirmed that an anime would be adapted out of Solo Leveling manhwa. Though we are 100% sure that sooner or later we will get it.
