Anime Expo: Crunchyroll Previews Upcoming Titles

Last weekend saw the Anime Expo event return to LA in full force. Among the big names in anime in attendance to preview their upcoming delights was Crunchyroll. Here's the big reveals from their industry panel.

Solo Leveling is an adaptation of the Korean manhwa of the same name written by Chugong and illustrated by DUBU (REDICE Studio). Animation production is by A-1 Pictures and Crunchyroll will simulcast the show worldwide outside of Asia.

It's been over a decade since the sudden appearance of the "gates"—the paths that connect our world with a different dimension. Since then, certain humans have awakened to supernatural powers. We call these individuals "hunters." Hunters make their living by using their powers to conquer dungeons inside the gates. In this world of tough customers, the low-ranked hunter Jinwoo Sung is known as "the weakest hunter of all mankind." One day, Jinwoo gets fatally injured when he runs into high-rank double dungeons hidden within a low-rank dungeon. Just then, a mysterious quest window appears in front of him. On the verge of death, Jinwoo decides to accept the quest and starts leveling up... while the others aren't.

Tomo-Chan Is A Girl is an adaptation of the manga by Fumita Yanagida, and will be produced by studio Lay-duce.  Crunchyroll will stream the series in 2023
