Top Anime Picks for Fans Of Solo Leveling’s Epic Adventures

In the anime ‘Solo Leveling,’ viewers follow Sung Jinwoo, a relatable protagonist who finds himself at the lowest rung of his profession. In Jinwoo’s universe, portals release fantastical monsters, and hunters such as Jinwoo must employ both magic and weaponry to combat them. As fans eagerly await a new season of ‘Solo Leveling,’ why not indulge in a binge-watch of comparable anime series? Below, we present a selection for your viewing pleasure.

‘Chainsaw Man’

Adapted from Tatsuki Fujimoto’s ongoing manga, the ‘Chainsaw Man’ anime is a gritty and unconventional series that defies traditional shonen tropes with refreshing innovation. Set in an alternate 1990s timeline, professional devil hunters roam the streets, including Denji, the newest recruit to the Public Safety Commission.

Similar to Sung Jinwoo from ‘Solo Leveling,’ Denji was once an ordinary and vulnerable youth until he acquired extraordinary power. Through a fusion with his devil companion Pochita, Denji transforms into Chainsaw Man, a formidable warrior motivated by the simple desires of sustenance and recognition. His endeavours lead him to confront various devil adversaries while navigating complex relationships, notably with his enigmatic superior, Makima, who observes his every action with a watchful eye. This anime has an IMDb rating of 8.4.

‘Jujutsu Kaisen’

‘Jujutsu Kaisen’ has emerged as one of today’s most beloved anime (detective anime) series, earning both popularity and acclaim. However, ‘Solo Leveling’ could rival its status over time. Both shows are poised to become iconic fantasy action titles, sharing a somewhat similar premise. In each, a compassionate young protagonist embarks on a journey to battle monsters, growing significantly stronger along the way. 

Yuji Itadori, the central character of ‘Jujutsu Kaisen,’ was an ordinary high school student until he ingested one of Ryomen Sukuna’s cursed fingers, transforming him into a curse sorcerer and the vessel for the powerful curse king. Through rigorous training, Yuji becomes a skilled sorcerer, dedicated to eradicating dangerous curse monsters from the streets and occasionally clashing with other humans. His adventures also bring him face to face with formidable adversaries like Mahito, Hanami, Choso, and others. This anime has an IMDb rating of 8.6.

‘Engage Kiss’

‘Engage Kiss’ may not enjoy the same level of popularity as blockbuster anime like ‘Solo Leveling’ and ‘Jujutsu Kaisen,’ but for fans seeking a lighthearted and unconventional anime experience, it offers a delightful option. As one of the many monster hunter anime series, ‘Engage Kiss’ follows protagonist Shu Ogata and his half-demon (My Demon) partner Kisara as they battle demons in their island city of Bayron City. Despite its lesser-known status, ‘Engage Kiss’ presents an entertaining twist on the genre. It holds an IMDb rating of 6.4/10.

‘Goblin Slayer’

In a world reminiscent of ‘Solo Leveling’s’ fantasy setting, ‘Goblin Slayer’ revolves around quests to combat monsters, with a distinct focus on the nameless protagonist, the Goblin Slayer, dedicated solely to eradicating goblins. Collaborating with fellow adventurers, he strategically confronts goblin hordes to safeguard villages from their threat, earning the series an IMDb rating of 7.4/10.
