March 31, 2024

Currently, almost every anime, manga, otaku-themed information medium is talking about “Solo Leveling,” the anime adaptation of the popular manhwa “Solo Leveling” (“Ore dake Level Up na Ken“), created by Chugong (in the form of light novels), originally published through KakaoPage starting in 2016, and adapted to webtoon since 2018 by Jang Sung-rak.

Of course, just mentioning the name “Solo Leveling” is reason enough to pay attention to any news that is spread about it. For example, recently a leak that was spread through a Korean portal focused on movements in the South Korean market, The Bell: Gateway to Capital Markets. In the article, published in February this year, mention was made of the publisher that publishes the contents of “Solo Leveling,” and after market data and corporate movements, and a series of explanations too long for this article, it was “hinted” that the production of the anime could extend up to a sixth season!

Does it seem too much for a guess based on a leak? Well, here and now we can confirm an officially announced fact: “Solo Leveling” will have a second season. Indeed, at the end of the broadcast of episode #12 of the series, this news was announced, which revolutionized the entire community. As if that were not enough, the news was also spread in the official media of the series, in addition to making public a 30-second teaser where the future installment of the franchise is also mentioned.
