One of the biggest and most popular anime series of 2019, ” Solo Leveling” is all set to be back for Season 2! Illustrated by Jang Sung Rak, this action fantasy anime originally started in 2018, and the last season of the first season was aired a few months back in March 2020. Although initially based on a Korean web novel, the fan-favorite series is all set to release in English as well, by Webnovel. Considering it even won the #1 Webtoon award at Piccoma’s “Best of 2019” along with quite a few other nominations, this is one series you can watch out for!
The story starts in a fantasy world with two parallel dimensions- the world we live in and the world of monsters and other ghastly creatures. Due to certain unknown circumstances, there develops a portal between these two dimensions, and these monsters try to get into our world. But whenever there’s been a crisis, our race has stood up to it.
In this story, too, to deal with this crisis, a group of brave “hunters” is formed- who train and have the ability to hunt these monsters down. They act as guardians to this interdimensional portal. The protagonist, though, is Sung Jin-Woo, who is regarded as the weakest among all the hunters and is considered to be an underdog. As the story progresses, due to an unfortunate accident, most of the other hunters lose their lives to a trap set by the monsters.
However, Sung Jin-Woo not only survives but also discovers new abilities and powers, turning into a “player.” With most of the other hunters dead, it is not up to Sung Jin-Woo to save the world! Will the so-called “Underdog” be able to become the strongest Hunter in the world? All this would be answered in Season 2!
The protagonist of the story, Sung Jin-Woo, is all set to come back for Season 2, and fans can’t wait to see what he achieves with his newly achieved powers! Other characters from Season 1, like Jo Byung Gu and Go Joon Hee, are also going to be back.
Although there haven’t been any official announcements from the creators regarding Season 2, considering the huge popularity and fan-base, we are pretty sure it’ll be back soon. To convince the producers, fans have even started signing petitions demanding the release! So, next time you come across one, be sure to sign it! For further updates, stay tuned to Next Alerts.
