Hmm I’m not a leaker tho, simply my ideas, all opinion

At the time it was additionally a plausible rumor for the reason that widespread Solo Leveling manhwa completed adapting the ending of the online novel’s story in late 2021. There’s already a Solo Leveling online game and live-action TV drama being developed, so why not an animation challenge?

How many episodes will the Solo Leveling anime have?

The variety of episodes for the Solo Leveling anime has not but been introduced. However, primarily based on the manhwa comedian sequence (see the anime/manhwa comparability part under for extra particulars), it’s seemingly that the primary season will probably be a number of cours.

A “cour” is a three-month TV broadcasting block primarily based on the bodily seasons, normally composed of 10 to 13 episodes.

Since the Solo Leveling comedian sequence is already completed, it’s additionally potential the primary season could possibly be a whole adaptation quite than persevering with with a Solo Leveling Season 2. In that situation, let’s simply hope the Solo Leveling anime is a split-cour anime for the sake of the manufacturing schedule and animation high quality.

Solo Leveling Season 2 anime seemingly?

The Solo Leveling story is lengthy sufficient that it’s going to require a number of cours to adapt correctly into an anime. The 179 chapters of the webtoon (or 270 chapters of the novel) are divided up into 22 story arcs, together with the Chapter 0 prologue and epilogue. None of the story arcs are overly lengthy, with the longest being 18 chapters in size.

Assuming the Solo Leveling anime TV sequence is split up into a number of seasons, one of the best stopping level is shortly after the Jeju Island arc (Chapters 90 by means of 107). Without entering into spoilers, it affords a climactic battle and a significant turning level within the story primarily based on sure character developments.

If the story is split up that manner, then the Solo Leveling Season 2 anime would line up with the second season of the webtoon. Of course, an optimum adaptation could be a split-cour anime a Solo Leveling Part 2 anime picks up the story once more on the similar level.

Why Solo Leveling character Sung Jin-Woo was modified to Shun Mizushino 

In the previous, three Japanese studios have already tailored a Manhwa sequence into an anime: Telecom Animation Film (Tower of God), MAPPA (The God of High School), and Production I.G. (Noblesse). Arguably, Studio MAPPA already has sufficient tasks on its full plate (Chainsaw Man, Jujutsu Kaisen, Jigokuraku, and so on.), and Studio Telecom Animation Film is reportedly already engaged on Tower of God Season 2.

Since Solo Leveling is a South Korean creation so some followers have been hoping {that a} Korean studio like Studio Mir may deal with the challenge. (Studio Mir is solely an instance since they’ve by no means tailored a manhwa or manga sequence earlier than. Most of their tasks have been produced for Nickelodeon, Adult Swim, or Netflix, together with Voltron: Legendary Defender and The Legend of Korra.)

A secondary subject was whether or not the animation may even be thought-about an anime if a Japanese studio wasn’t concerned. It’s a tough query to reply since there have been anime tasks the place the director was Korean (The God of High School). There have additionally been anime tasks the place a good portion of the work was outsourced to Chinese, Korean, and Philippine studios.

The purpose {that a} Korean studio appeared potential at one level is because of how the novel addresses some political points between South Korea and Japan. In reality, the Japanese are actually solid as villains!

On that foundation, Japanese studios like A-1 Pictures have been in all probability leery about associating their identify with the challenge until important story tweaks are made. And that’s what they’ve completed for the reason that identify of the principle character, Sung Jin-Woo, was modified to Shun Mizushino, which has confirmed to be controversial in its personal proper.

Of course, it’s not just like the politics of the story centered on solely Korea and Japan. The Solo Leveling Season 2 webtoon additionally featured points between the USA and China.

But for the reason that most important character was given a Japanese identify it’s seemingly that the story could possibly be modified much more with a view to keep away from naming different nations as villains.
