For a long time now, Japanese and Korean graphic book words like manga and manhwa have dominated the English-speaking world. This type of comic narrative, which originated in Asia, has gained popularity all over the world, which has had an effect on the sales of competing products. And to be more precise, the demand for manhwa has increased dramatically worldwide, not only in South Korea. Solo Leveling, also known as I Level Up Alone, is one of the finest manhwas of its kind and has been on the top of the manhwa charts for years. Manhwa readers have finally reached the last chapter after four years and 179 incredible chapters. Moreover, an official Solo Leveling Anime is coming sooner than thought, vastly increasing the game’s potential audience.
The wheels have just started turning on 2022, yet we’ve already heard the fantastic news that may drive us completely insane. True or false? Yeah, the anime version of the popular manhwa Solo Leveling has begun production. Along with that, the announcement also served as confirmation that work on the Solo Leveling anime had begun.

Will the upcoming anime change the plot of the original Manhwa?
According to sources and rumors, the upcoming Solo Leveling anime will modify a lot of the specifics from the original Korean Solo Leveling Manhwa. The main character’s name will be changed from the original Jin-Woo to Shun Mizushino, and the events will now take place in Tokyo, the capital of Japan, rather than Seoul, the capital of South Korea, in addition to some other minor adjustments to the plot.
Solo Leveling Anime Release Date
Now, about the expected release date, we don’t think the studio will tell the whole story in one season because the manhwa is so long. Since there will be more than one season, if the studio works quickly (without lowering the quality of the anime as they did with God of High School), we could see it in the fourth quarter of 2022 or the first quarter of 2023. And if the creators don’t want to make it more exciting for the fans and decide to release it all at once, then good luck waiting, because we won’t see it until the third or fourth quarter of 2023.
What Have the Creators of ‘Solo Leveling’ Said About the Anime?
The original authors of Solo Leveling, Chugong and DUBU, both provided their opinions on the anime adaptation in a press release.

“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.”
DUBU said: “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.
