One day, after surviving an immensely powerful double dungeon that almost wipes out his entire team, a mysterious software called the System picks him as its single player. The System also grants him the exceedingly rare ability to advance in strength and transform anybody he kills into a faithful minion called a shadow.

Jin Woo then embarks on a quest to learn the mysteries of the dungeons and the actual source of his powers while facing off against a variety of foes, both humans and monsters.

Solo Leveling anime will reportedly be broadcast through Crunchyroll outside of Asia.
