Solo Leveling Episode 1 Recap

The opening minutes of Solo Leveling Episode 1 feature a series of anime-original scenes where we see a group of low-level Hunters charging into a dungeon full of ant-like monsters and various leaders of the Hunters’ Guild discussing the nature of the Dungeons. These scenes feature several major characters introduced later in the Solo Leveling webcomic, including Yoo-Chin Hoo and Cha Hae-In.

Eventually, we’re introduced to Sung Jin-Woo, who endures more than a bit of ribbing from higher-ranked Hunters as he prepares to enter a D-rank dungeon. Fortunately, he does have one friend amongst the assembled Hunters: Lee Joo-hi, who makes it very clear she thinks Sung-Jin’s out of his league.

During the raid, Sung Jin-Woo is nearly hacked to ribbons by a goblin and only manages to nab a small crystal. However, before the party can leave the dungeon, a new passage opens in the final room. Desperate to provide for his younger sister and comatose mother, Sung Jin-Woo votes to delve deeper despite Lee’s protests.

The party finds themselves in a large room filled with rather menacing statues. As soon as one of the Hunters tries to leave, the statues come alive and begin wasting the team of would-be adventures. The episode ends with Sung Jin-Woo staring into the merciless eyes of one of the statues, which grins down at him with sadistic glee.
