The number one web novel to be read has finally hit our screens with its first episode premiering today. The moment that many have been waiting for when the announcement had been made. A moment of the realization that this story is finally getting an adaption that we hope will hold up to the hype of the web novel/webtoon. How do we dive into a world filled with monsters and dungeons? A world filled with blood and gore, and a plan to destroy it all. We look to our weakest hero for that moment.
We enter the world of Solo Leveling with a battle between Hunters and monsters that they are trying to clear away. While the moment of this world is being animated, it does appear to be a very lower side of the animation. There was an expectation of a bit more of the animation that was a slight let down, yet, we are not going to put everything on just one episode. The fun is just beginning for this anime and we are going to hold out for a bit more to see what A-1 will do. While many animes can be very quick paced, Solo Leveling is giving a softer pace as the story moves forward. The trickle of information they give you to hook you in before it dives deeper into the world you are about to see.
This whirlwind of a anime is going to keep many people on the edge of their seats. However, we will need to wait on how A-1 studios was able to animate these scenes that will be filled with blood and demented smiles. The path is unknowing in these moments, and we will need to see if the story will stay true to the web novel or if it will divert from the path it had. The path this anime is taking is very much up in the air, and the world it will create along with the fanbase that will be watching every moment of it.
While the future of Solo Leveling is up in the air, we cannot wait to see what A-1 will do with this amazing web novel turn anime. The fast pace it will capture and the battles it will bring. I have high hopes for the studio to keep up with the pace of this fast working movements that will soon fill the screen. See you next time for the review of Episode Two!
