Plot, Cast, Release Date, and Everything Else We Know

Solo Leveling is a name that resonates with every webtoon reader because it not only paved the way for RPG and dungeon comics in Korea but has also been consistently at the top for years. While the artwork in the webtoon is exceptional and noteworthy, even when compared to the likes of Tower of God, The God of High School, and Eleceed, Solo Leveling has a unique approach to captivating the reader: elevations.

When the Solo Leveling anime was announced in early 2023, many fans were ecstatic that their favorite webtoon had finally received a well-deserved adaptation. Many anime enthusiasts, however, are still a bit reluctant to accept any animation studio other than Ufotable, which animated masterpieces such as Demon Slayer, Fate, and God Eater.

While whether the current animation studio, A-1 Pictures, does the webtoon justice is up for another debate, here’s everything we know so far about the upcoming anime Solo Leveling.

Solo Leveling: The Plot

Solo Leveling has grown immensely popular in the last few years, thanks to the success of both the webtoon and the novel. At this point, many fans have already gone through the story at least once, if not multiple times. Nevertheless, let’s find out what’s in store for the anime viewers when the highly anticipated series premieres.

When mysterious gates appeared in the world ten years ago, everything changed. The peaceful world has been turned into a hunting ground for maniacal monsters, with the land brimming with magic and bestowing powers on individuals known as “Hunters.” In the present, Sung Jin Woo, often mockingly referred to by his peers as the weakest hunter even in the E-Rank, works tirelessly to take care of his younger sister, Sung Jin Ah, and medically induced mother.

However, his fate changes forever when a typical dungeon hunt goes awry, and a double dungeon appears within. What begins as a nightmare that nearly kills his entire party and himself grants him power through a system interface, helping him to become the strongest hunter in the world, if not the entire universe. While many mysteries await unraveling, Sung Jin Woo’s only goal is to get out of his pathetic predicament and protect his family and the world from impending calamities.

Although the concept of dungeons, monsters, and hunters isn’t new in the world of video games and RPG novels, Solo Leveling provided a valuable experience for its readers, and there is nothing more they want apart from seeing it animated and, if possible, a live-action series done right.

Solo Leveling anime boasts a rather experienced cast, and it is utterly necessary to bring out the best in Sung Jin Woo and other characters like Cha Hae In. Taito Ban voices Sung Jin Woo, the anime’s main protagonist, who begins as the world’s weakest hunter and undergoes a supreme transformation to become the strongest hunter in existence.

The actor is best known for his previous roles as Soyuz in Dr. Stone, Spider in Vinland Saga, Fujimiya Amane in The Angel Next Door Spoils Me Rotten, and Robthor Udgard in How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom.

As the title suggests, there are no other main characters in the anime because it places a significant emphasis on Sung Jin Woo’s character and builds the story around him. While not all the supporting cast has been revealed, such as the voice actors for notable characters Beru, Igris, Lee Joo Hee, and Hwang Dong Suk, we do have the information regarding a few other essential characters.

While Genta Nakamura (Shadows House) and Banjou Ginga (Baki) voice Yoo Jin Ho and Go Gun Hee, Reina Ueda (Mashle) and Makoto Furukawa (Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead) voice the characters Cha Hae In and Woo Jin Chul. Meanwhile, the other prominent characters, Baek Yoon Ho and Choi Jong In, the two fascinating S-rank hunters who desperately try to recruit Hunter Sung Jin Woo into their guilds, are voiced by Hiroki Touchi (The Garden of Sinners) and Daisuke Hirakawa (Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train) respectively.

Solo Leveling is directed by Shunsuke Nakashige, who previously worked on Chainsaw Man, Sword Art Online: Alicization, Attack on Titan, and many other visually stunning anime shows. While Noboru Kimura, well-known for his previous works Knight’s & Magic and Gangsta, is responsible for series composition, Tomoko Sudou, who worked on Seven Deadly Sins, Blue Exorcist, and Silver Spoon, is in charge of character design.

‘I am officially off the market’: When Margot Robbie revealed she made the ‘conscious’ decision of not dating actors

Margot Robbie revealed her decision to not date actors because of the media scrutiny that came with a public relationship of two high-profile actors
Back in 2015, A-lister Margot Robbie made a declaration that she would not be dating any actors. The actress may have alluded to her fiance Tom Ackerley, who she married the following year in 2016. In an exclusive interview with Marie Claire, she revealed that being in a relationship as an actor herself came with its own set of challenges. She believed that dating someone who was popular would add on to the media scrutiny.

Margot Robbie opened up on why she made a conscious decision to not date actorsTalking to Marie Claire, she claimed, “I am officially off the market.” She then shared the reasoning behind her decision and added, “I made a conscious decision not to date actors.” She continued to explain, “But not because I hate actors. That’s a nasty generalization to make, and that’s not the case. People take such an interest in your love life when you have a profile, it puts a lot of stress on a relationship.”
The Barbie actress continued, “So two people with profiles, I figure it’s just double the amount of scrutiny, and I’d like to avoid that at all costs.” This came after reports of her locking lips with Tarzan co-star Alexander Skarsgard started making rounds. It was reported that she was caught kissing the actor during the Sundance Film Festival.

Margot Robbie revealed she opted for a minimal lifestyle even after becoming an actorIn the interview, Robbie also opened up about how she was adapting to fame. She shared, “I have a normal 24-year-old life. If I were a waitress, I’d probably have the exact same lifestyle. I’d go to the same clubs I go to already, live in the same house with the same housemates, hang out with the same people.”
However, Margot Robbie tied the knot with Tom Ackerley who is an English producer and actor. The duo met on the sets of 2013 movie Suite Francaise where Tom was working as an assistant director. Post marriage, both of them launched their production company LuckyChap Entertainment.

‘Rocky’ Was Quite Different In His Original Screenplay, Sylvester Stallone Claims

Sylvester Stallone took his friend’s advice on a rewrite of the original screenplay to Rocky. A few tweaks later, he was on his way to major success.
In the new Netflix documentary Sly, Stallone discussed how he initially conceived of the project, which had a much harder edge. In the early version, Rocky was depicted as a “thuggish” character, inspired by Martin Scorsese’s crime drama, Mean Streets.

But Stallone’s perspective changed when a friend read the script and thought the boxer was too cruel for audiences to actually care about him.
Stallone recalled her crying.

“She goes, ‘I hate Rocky. I hate him. He’s cruel. He hits people. He beats them up.’”
Stallone took it to heart, and asked what he could do to soften the character.

“I said, ‘what if you stop short of it?’ Like, maybe he almost did. He could have, that’s his job, but he doesn’t?’ ‘That’d be nice,’” he added. “I said, ‘What if he had a girlfriend or something?’ ‘Yeah, that’s nice.’ So I go back, start writing that: ‘Girlfriend. Nice.’”
$117 million in box office later, a franchise was born.

Stallone also revealed that actor Dolph Lundgren sent him to the hospital during one fight scene in Rocky IV.
“Dolph Lundgren… he pulverized me,” Stallone says in the documentary. “Later that night, my heart started to swell—which happens when the heart hits the chest—and then my blood pressure went up to 260, and they thought I was going to be talking to angels. Next thing I know, I’m in intensive care, where I’m surrounded by nuns, and I thought, ‘OK, that’s curtains.’”
Stallone was in the hospital for nine days following the incident, praying for “one more round.”
“For the first minute of the fight, it is going to be a free-for-all,” Stallone told Lundgren. The Swedish actor joked in a separate interview that all he did was “obey orders,” explaining, “[Stallone] was the boss. I did what he told me.”
Doctors allegedly told Stallone that he received a blow to the ribs that made his heart rattle around in his ribcage, a condition typically seen in head-on collisions. “I did hit a bus, of sorts,” Stallone joked.
