The original digital comic series published on Tappytoon. The anime adaptation will be brought to life by the likes of DUBU (REDICE Studio), Chugong and h-goon. Alongside the the anime series, we get some key visuals and the premiere of a teaser trailer.

Crunchyroll provides a translation for the second key visual, which contains a message from the original creators:
Chugong: About six years ago when I was writing the very beginning of Solo Leveling, if someone had said to me, “The novel you wrote will become a comic,” I bet I’d have told them to stop pulling my leg. But now, I’m told that it’ll be animated?! Seriously, stop pulling my leg!… But these days, I’m feeling excited and thrilled. Since I’m still half-doubting that this is real, I want to see Jinwoo and the other characters get animated soon and feel relieved. I’ll keep working diligently while looking forward to that day. (lol)
DUBU: Solo Leveling is finally making its anime debut. It feels like only yesterday that we got the offer for the anime adaptation. I feel so overwhelmed when I think that the anime is really being created right now. This is all thanks to you fans who love and support Solo Leveling. I’m filled with gratitude. Thank you very much. Also, please support the animation production team. If this anime gives new enjoyment to the readers, I’ll be very happy.
The Solo Leveling anime adaptation is set to arrive sometime in 2023, and will be streaming on Crunchyroll.
