I Alone Level-Up known as Solo Leveling is a popular light novel covering Action, Adventure, and Fantasy genres. Written by Chu-Gong (추공) in February 14, 2014. It was then serialized as a novel in Papyrus that ended with 14 volumes and 270 chapters.

Featured Article

The Ant King (왕) was an immensely powerful Magic Beast born from the Ant Queen on Jeju Island where an S-Rank Gate had opened. The Ant Queen, who was monitored 24 hours a day by a Japanese satellite, showed a massive decline in its magical energy. It was later learned that this was due to the Ant Queen birthing her strongest child, the Ant King, for the sole purpose of beating strong Hunters. The King was one of the few magic beasts capable of communicating with Sung Jin-Woo similar to Baruka of the Red Gate and Kargalgan. Through his ability, Gluttony, the Ant King was able to learn human languages including Korean after devouring powerful S-Rank hunters. It is one of the most powerful magic beasts introduced within the series, with no hunters present during the Jeju Island Raid being able to fight against it, excluding Sung Jin-Woo. The Ant King is the primary antagonist of the Jeju Island Arc. To view the entire article, click Ant King.

Summary

10 years ago, after “the Gate” that connected the real world with the monster world opened, some of the ordinary, everyday people received the power to hunt monsters within the Gate. They are known as “Hunters”. However, not all Hunters are powerful. My name is Sung Jin-Woo, an E-rank Hunter. I’m someone who has to risk his life in the lowliest of dungeons, the “World’s Weakest”. Having no skills whatsoever to display, I barely earned the required money by fighting in low-leveled dungeons… at least until I found a hidden dungeon with the hardest difficulty within the D-rank dungeons! In the end, as I was accepting death, I suddenly received a strange power, a quest log that only I could see, a secret to leveling up that only I know about! If I trained in accordance with my quests and hunted monsters, my level would rise. Changing from the weakest Hunter to the strongest S-rank Hunter!

absolutely love this story. it was very well done and i comend the author this is one of my favorite light novels. the character growth is just 👌 and he doesn't feel forced or end up a selfish ass when he gets stronger, which is a common grief with this kind of thing

Came to read this since I got impatient waiting for the webtoon chapters. I loved this story, especially the mc, and I wish it was longer. The romance plot could've been explored more, but it's a minor issue for me.

simply good and unique. I was hesitant to start it but the way it draws u is quite amazing. The whole world and a different concept of God has been visualized. One should read it.

At first I thought this was just gonna be another weird S ranking story written off from One Punch Man or something similar, but holy **** was I wrong. The story starts off a the classic revival of the weakest to the strongest, but Jin-Woos character design and choice of power is just sick. The story is honestly for me is one of the best out there. Jin-Woo just gets more OP without making it to much by balancing it with an even better rival or opponent. I definitely recommend this if you got nothing else to do.

Has a very good ending! Ended with a very good peace in the whole story. The world didn't get destroyed due to the reborn. And at the end of the Novel it shows the point of solo leveling. Which make sense for this whole Novel name.

So first of all, what is with these positive reviews?? This is so overrated. Though actually, the worst part of it is that he ended up with Cha Hae-In. In my opinion, that makes absolutely no sense at all, especially when they had a kid. The reincarnation thing made no sense either. Did the author run out of ideas or what...? I liked the manhwa, but this is kinda disappointing. I almost dropped the manhwa because of it. Someone tell me why everyone likes this so much. The only positive things about this manhwa would either be If I had read this before I read other WN, I may have at least enjoyed it more than I actually have.

I came here from the manhwa. The only redeeming quality of the manhwa was the art. Obviously this a novel.

First, this is seriously overrated. I enjoyed the manhwa but the story is just not good. There is plot armor, albeit no much as many others, it is still there and it is painfully apparent quite a few times. The author does a good job trying to make the mc appear badass. The fight scenes are also decent/good. That is the only reason I am giving this two stars is because of this.

Now the MC is fucking dumb. Just try to use ur brain for a second and u will see what i am talking about. He can easily get op by the system without any need to risk his life but he still does that.
[Spoilers]
Although the author later tries to justify that by him surpassing the angel's expectations, it doesn't mean much.

Moving on, most characters seem quite bland. There is nothing much about them that sets them apart from each other, other than their power level. Moreover, the characters dont even matter, every and i mean every character seems like an extra. And dont get me started on the stupid japan arc.

The logical reasoning just doesn't apply. The ending was just horrible there is no other word for it. The author may have thought about it from the start but still there would be a lot more better ways to go about.

Finally the most stupid thing, the love interest. "He doesn't smell and saved me, i think i am in love". WTF. That is the worst way to go about making a love interest. Conclusion: Don't smell bad and u will get a chick.

The are a ton of other thing I can ramble about, but I'll stop now.

Although I said all that, you can still read it, just shut off your brain and you may even enjoy it, I mean I did. But this nowhere near lives up to the hype and is in no way a masterpiece. There are a lot, a LOT of better novels out there, and this is one of the worse ones that I have read. Just wanted to put this out, so there is at least one true review out there other than mindless chimps rating this 5 star.
