Solo Leveling first began as a Korean web novel written and illustrated by Chugong and illustrated by Dubu. Dubu later created a webtoon based on it. H-Goon is credited with adapting Solo Levelling in the anime’s credits and recent volumes of the webtoon’s Japanese publication.
Tappytoon describes the webtoon as:
In a world where awakened beings called “Hunters” must battle deadly monsters to protect humanity, Sung Jinwoo, nicknamed “the weakest hunter of all mankind,” finds himself in a constant struggle for survival. One day, after a brutal encounter in an overpowered dungeon wipes out his party and threatens to end his life, a mysterious System chooses him as its sole player: Jinwoo has been granted the rare opportunity to level up his abilities, possibly beyond any known limits. Follow Jinwoo’s journey as he takes on ever-stronger enemies, both human and monster, to discover the secrets deep within the dungeons and the ultimate extent of his powers.
The physical volumes of the Korean web novel and manhwa are published in English by Yen Press. Both have been translated into Japanese.
Crunchyroll will be streaming the show outside of Japan.
