What Is Solo Leveling About?
In a world constantly threatened by monsters of increasing threat levels, hunters with special abilities must fight and defeat them to protect mankind. It’s a simple JRPG-inspired premise with modern trappings, but executed wonderfully thanks to excellent character development and worldbuilding.
The main character, Sung Jin-Woo (likely to be localized as Shun Mizushino per the Japanese translation) is an E-Rank hunter. Between barely surviving dungeon expeditions, he is eventually chosen by the enigmatic “System” to get abilities to level up in strength and create followers out of his enemies. The story proceeds from there as Jin-Woo/Shun explores dungeons, fights enemies, and discovers the secrets behind his powers.
What is the Solo Leveling Opening Theme?
Hiroyuki Sawano, who has composed for Xenoblade Chronicles X, Goddess of Victory: Nikke, and Attack on Titan, is collaborating with Tomorrow X Together for the opening theme, LEveL. It’ll feature Sawano’s compositions backing Tomorrow X Together’s K-pop beats perfectly suited for the modern take on a JRPG adventure.
