IS SOLO LEVELING CHAPTER 180 RELEASING THIS WEEK?
Unfortunately, Solo Leveling chapter 180 is not scheduled to release this week, or next week, or ever…
This is because chapter 179 was the final episode for the Solo Leveling series, with D&C Webtoon confirming the end of Jin-Woo’s story last week.
Solo Leveling started as a web novel in November 2016 and released its 13th volume in 2017, with the English version ‘Only I level up’ running until 2019.
However, it was the fantastic Webtoon run that truly cemented Solo Leveling as one of the biggest series in the world, beginning serialisation in 2018 and being read by more than 412,000 people on Kakao.
WILL WE EVER SEE SOLO LEVELING RETURN?
Whilst fans are deeply saddened by the conclusion of Solo Leveling, many are aware that there is plenty of potential from the main story for the franchise to continue with a spin-off.
Not only does the wider world of Solo Leveling include various fan favourite characters, but a remarkably deep ‘lore’ for the universe itself.
There has been no indication that a spin-off project is being planned by either Chugong or D&C Media, but the global popularity of Solo Leveling will certainly encourage those involved to think about a continuation.
Could we potentially see the series go international by telling the backstory for the world’s most powerful hunters? Personally, we could easily see a side story about Thomas Andre (USA), Lui Zhigang (China) or Goto Ryuji (Japan) being produced, but what do you think?
