During the lockdown, everyone was just looking for a way to quench their boredom. While looking for sources of entertainment, some tuned in for anime, some binge watched kdramas and some had movie marathons. However, another fan base came under limelight during the pandemic: Manhwa and Webtoon fans. Various genres were enjoyed, such as isekai, shoujo, shounen, seinen and yaoi to name a few. However, no matter what the niche, there is one manhwa that every reader knows. Yes, it’s Solo Leveling.
2022 has only just begun, and we’ve already received some quite positive news that can absolutely drive everyone insane. What do you think? Yes, our favorite manhwa Solo Leveling is certainly receiving its very own anime adaptation. And it’s also been affirmed that the output of the Solo Leveling anime already has begun. This amazing news was given out by an insider on Weibo, and various people on Twitter have said that this is true! If the rumors are accurate, then we can assume that Studio Mir is going to be in charge of production. Studio Mir is a South Korean animation studio probably most famous for its work on prevalent animated series such as The Legends of Korra and DOTA: Dragon’s Blood.
Because all viewers are indeed accustomed with the activities that happen when a graphic novel is transformed into an anime, diehards wished for MAPPA or Ufotable to consider taking over output. But, given the anti-Japan elements inside the narrative of this manhwa, it’s not happening. Crunchyroll, an online streaming forum, adapted and licenced a few webtoons, including Tower of God and Noblesse. This time, however, that will not be the scenario.
Irrespective, we don’t really have an official announcement or any production specifics in our palms. The content providers of Solo Leveling, D&C media, have still not disclosed any details about the adaptation, but making judgments by the enthusiasm, we’ll find out from insiders for sure! In addition, The Boyz, a world-famous South Korean K-pop band, has been tapped to come up with an original OST for the forthcoming Solo Leveling anime. The MV for ‘Echo’ has released worldwide on 3rd of March, 2022.
