Solo Leveling is one of the most highly-anticipated new anime adaptations coming next year. The series features a world of "hunters", warriors with powerful abilities that battle monsters, and its story centers on one low-level hunter who finds himself struggling to survive with his lack of power and desperate need for money. Animation studio A-1 Pictures has released teaser trailers earlier this year, but today, the first English dub trailer has been released along with the announcement of its full English dub cast that will bring Sung Jinwoo and other characters to life.
