Solo Leveling has a plot that is quite mainstream with shounen manga in general, a main character who is initially weak, experiences difficulties and finally gains the strength to face the obstacles and obstacles that lie ahead.

The uniqueness of this series that is very clearly visible compared to other shounen manga and anime is the world of the main character who can go in and out of dungeons.

The logic used in Solo Leveling is the appearance of a gate to the dungeon. The side effect of the appearance of the gate or gateway to the dungeon is eternal sleep experienced by the main character named Sung Jinwoo and the power in randomly selected humans.

In the world of Solo Leveling, people who gain power randomly due to the random appearance of gates or gates to dungeons are called hunters.

Because a hunter has power, the hunter can have the privilege of entering and defeating monsters so as to obtain items that fall from the defeated monsters. Similar logic to MMORPG games.

Each hunter has a level. There are levels starting from E, D, C, B, A and the highest among other hunters is level S.

In Solo Leveling, the main character, Sung Jinwoo is at the lowest level, namely E. In every party he joins, he is always a burden to his party mates. Until one day, he and his party friends entered an additional dungeon after defeating the boss in a level D dungeon.

Initially, there were two camps when they saw the dungeon that suddenly appeared. After it was decided to vote, it was decided to enter the dungeon. There are many puzzles and attacks experienced by a group of B level hunters including our main character Sung Jinwoo. Not a few victims fell as a result of this dungeon that suddenly appeared.

Fortunately, the main character Sung Jinwoo survived this very dangerous dungeon. However, the struggle did not stop there.

After 3 days in a coma in the hospital, Sung Jinwoo saw a screen floating in front of him. The appearance is similar to a game notification. In this notification, there are several missions that our main character Sung Jinwoo must complete.

Day after day, Sung Jinwoo carried out missions and received ordinary rewards. Until one day he got a special key to open a special dungeon. You can see this scene in the third episode of the Solo Leveling anime.

Ultimately, there was a lot of debate over Solo Leveling, by the Japanese studio. Apart from that, there are still many manga or manhwa that also deserve serialization in both animated and live action form, such as The Gamer and Dice from South Korea and 7 Wonders and Born to Death from Indonesia.

However, as fans of anime, manhwa and manga, we cannot say things that are hurtful to other people or certain fandoms by saying that the anime, manhwa or manga that other people or certain fandoms like is bad or terrible.
