[su_quote]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.
Unfortunately, Dubu will not see the anime premiere.
