The first full-length trailer for the anime adaptation of Solo Leveling has recently released, showing Jin-Woo’s beginnings.

Light spoilers for the beginning of Solo Leveling

A-1 Pictures, the Japanese animation studio, has released the first full trailer for its highly-anticipated anime, Solo Leveling. Based on a popular webtoon comic of the same name, the series is set to premiere sometime in winter 2024 and will be available to stream on Crunchyroll in various regions worldwide.

Solo Leveling is set in a fantasy universe where powerful humans called “Hunters” protect humanity by fighting supernatural creatures as mercenaries.

The catch of these powers is that to get them, a person has to go through an awakening. Once they have gone through one awakening they are stuck at the same power level for the rest of their lives, a select few hunters will go through a second awakening, but that’s it.

The story follows Sung Jin-Woo, a weak hunter known by many as “The weakest hunter,” who receives a magical power called “The System,” which allows him to grow in strength limitlessly.

With this newfound power, Sung Jin-Woo becomes the world’s greatest hunter and unwittingly finds himself in the midst of a war between two powerful factions battling for humanity’s fate.

The trailer for Solo Leveling shows Sung Jin-Woo in the moments leading up to receiving his powers, providing viewers with a glimpse into what could be the show’s first episode. Fans of the webtoon have been eagerly awaiting the release of the anime adaptation since its announcement in July of last year.
