The web novel has fans from every corner of the globe, most of who claim it to be a masterpiece of sorts. After three years of serialization, the web novel has concluded with 179 chapters wrapped up in 14 volumes.

This had several fans confusing the announcement with an anime adaptation. In addition to the whole shenanigan, a trusted leaker on Weibo also posted that a Solo Leveling anime adaptation was, in fact, under production. This led to an uproar of excitement within fandom. However, there has been no official announcement from any studio houses till now from any production media indicating an anime adaptation of Solo Leveling.
Alternatively, there have been two special announcements regarding Solo Leveling in the past. A Solo Leveling web novel-inspired game is currently being developed by Netmarble Corp. Additionally, an English drama based on the giant web novel is also being produced.
Solo Leveling Anime Predictions
While there has been no announcement regarding the anime adaptation, neither D & C Comics nor the creators have confirmed nor denied the rumors. This could be a positive sign for all the fans expecting an anime adaptation. However, it seems doubtful that any Japanese studio would pick up the web novel for the story depicts Japan in a villainous light. Despite this, given the web novel’s success, it seems like it won’t be long before we receive an anime adaptation of Solo Leveling.
