Get ready for a rollercoaster of supernatural action as Solo Leveling gears up to be one of the most anticipated anime releases of 2024. The A-1 Pictures production, based on the hit digital comic series, is set to captivate audiences with its thrilling narrative and a stellar English voice cast that was revealed at Anime NYC.
At the forefront of the series is Sung Jinwoo, the dual blade-wielding, shadow-summoning protagonist portrayed by the talented Aleks Le. The story unfolds as Jinwoo, a low-level hunter, grapples with his meager power level and the constant need for money that keeps him entrenched in the world of hunters.
Accompanying Jinwoo on his quest is a diverse cast of characters, each brought to life by a talented ensemble of voice actors. Justin Briner lends his voice to the trusty rich sidekick Yoo Jinho, while Rebecca Wang embodies the hard-working sister Sung Jinah. Michelle Rojas takes on the role of the lovely and deadly S-rank hunter Cha Hae-in, and Ian Sinclair brings the flame-wielding cool glasses guy Choi Jong-in to life. Christopher R. Sabat captures the beast mode with sick sideburns, Baek Yoonho, and Kent Williams embody the silver-haired wise chairman of the Korean Hunter Association, Go Gunhee. SungWon Cho steps into the shoes of Chief Inspector Woo Jinchul, and Dani Chambers breathes life into Sung Jinwoo’s hunter friend Lee Joohee.
The Solo Leveling English Dub Trailer gives us a sneak peek into the world of hunters, with Shunsuke Nakashige directing the adaptation at A-1 Pictures. The anime, set to premiere in January 2024, promises an exhilarating experience with Crunchyroll streaming the series for eager fans.
For those new to the Solo Leveling universe, Yen Press publishes the English version of the digital comic. The eighth volume is slated for release on January 21, 2024, offering readers a chance to dive into the gripping narrative. The series, described by Yen Press as the journey of the “Weakest Hunter of All Mankind,” Jinwoo Sung, is a tale of survival, courage, and unexpected encounters with beings of unimaginable power.
