During the Crunchyroll Industry Panel at Anime Expo 2022, it was revealed that Korean manhwa Solo Leveling by DUBU (REDICE Studio), Chugong, h-goon will receive an anime adaptation in 2023. Crunchyroll announced it will stream the series and revealed the first anime key visual featuring Jinwoo Sung.
The main staff was revealed to include Shunsuke Nakashige as director, Noboru Kimura as head writer, Tomoko Sudo as character designer, and Hiroyuki Sawano as music composer. A-1 Pictures is in charge of the animation production.
Crunchyroll describes the series as:
It’s been over a decade since the sudden appearance of the “gates”—the paths that connect our world with a different dimension. Since then, certain humans have awakened to supernatural powers. We call these individuals “hunters.” Hunters make their living by using their powers to conquer dungeons inside the gates. In this world of tough customers, the low-ranked hunter Jinwoo Sung is known as “the weakest hunter of all mankind.” One day, Jinwoo gets fatally injured when he runs into high-rank double dungeons hidden within a low-rank dungeon. Just then, a mysterious quest window appears in front of him. On the verge of death, Jinwoo decides to accept the quest and starts leveling up… while the others aren’t.
Yen Press is publishing the Korean web novel and manhwa in English.
