With a Solo Leveling anime in the pipeline, there’s a lot of buzzing about the details of this release and fans are anticipating how big of a ripple Solo Leveling will create in the anime world. While not much is out for the public to grab at, there are some speculations we have about the Solo Leveling Anime.
Solo Leveling is a Korean Manhwa created by Chungong, which was originally a web novel series serialized in Kakao’s digital comics platform KakaoPage since 2016. It was later picked by D&C Comics for continuation and after the end of Season 1 in 2019, a new season 2 began publication in 2020. The English Version of Solo Leveling is licensed by Webnovel under the title ‘Only I Level Up’. With 14 volumes in existence, the series is also receiving a video game as well as a possible drama adaptation.

About The Solo Leveling Anime Project
The Solo Leveling Anime Project has been making the rounds for a while. Petitions have been created online to boost the probability of an anime adaptation after the Tower of God Manhwa received an anime adaptation. There are rumours about production for the show being underway or geared up for the near future.
In recent updates, tweets have been going around about a possible adaptation of the anime for 2022. While the authenticity of the news is unconfirmed, there are a few ways the Solo Leveling anime adaptation could work out.
This anime adaptation would be a big deal for a number of seasons. The manhwa soared in popularity after the art, storyline and sheer amount of punch this series packed went viral. The Solo Leveling manhwa has an extensive story and power systems and some of the most exciting villains and monsters you can imagine. Sung Jinwoo is the (im)perfect protagonist that lifts the series to its best.
Which studio will animate Solo Leveling?
A lot of anime facts are hoping for studios like MAPPA or Studio Wit or Madhouse to work on the animation. Given MAPPA’s amazing record with the action genre in anime, releases like Jujutsu Kaisen, Attack on Titan Final Season, Dorohedoro and the upcoming Chainsaw Man anime and Hell’s Paradise Jigokuraku, MAPPA makes a very good case. But will the combo of Solo Leveling Anime and MAPPA actually work?
The only hiccup here is that Solo Leveling is a South-Korean Manhwa that addresses a lot of things that have sentiments that are not favourable towards Japan. This makes it slightly unlikely that Solo Leveling will be picked up by a Japanese studio regardless of its popularity.
In such a situation, Studio Mir, a South Korea-based animation studio may be the better choice. Studio Mir has previously produced The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, Dota: Dragon’s Blood, The Legend of Korra and more! This helps with the kind of production the Solo Leveling Anime will require.
When Will Solo Leveling Anime Release?
Looking at the complexity involved in the anime adaptation of Solo Leveling, its probable release date announcement depends on a number of factors. This includes the choice of the animation studio, the date when it is finalized, and the number of episodes that will go in Solo Leveling Season 1 anime.
Once the studio is finalized, anime adaptation usually takes between 7 and 13 months to premiere once the announcement is done. As far as episodes in a season are concerned, Solo Leveling Season 1 may go for a split cour. Part 1 of Season 1 is likely to consist of 12-14 episodes and Part 2 may consist of another 12-13 episodes.
With production confirmation and additional details still in the grey area, the best bets for the release of this anime are for late Winter 2022 or through Summer 2023.
The production details along with cast and trailers will be revealed following the official announcement. This anime adaptation may as well become one of the best releases in the last few years, competing with titles like Jujutsu Kaisen, Demon Slayer and more new-gen titles.
Where can I read Solo Leveling Manhwa?
Solo Leveling’s Mahwa English translation of chapters is available online on Tapas Media. The latest chapters are made available digitally on Tappy Toon too. The English version of the series is licensed by Yen Press and has been in print since 2021.
