Solo Leveling Episode 5 Preview: Release Date, Time & Where To Watch

Solo Leveling Season 1

Solo Leveling is a new action-adventure fantasy anime based on a popular webtoon. It takes place in a world where hunters explore dungeons to collect nifty rewards and battle dangerous beasts. At the center of our tale is Sung, who happens to be the weakest hunter in this universe. One day, he tackles a dungeon that’s too much for him to handle. 

Before perishing, a log appears in front of him and asks him if he’d like to become the Player. If he chooses “no,” he’ll perish. Not wanting to die, Sung accepts the log’s terms. This kickstarts Sung’s journey to become the most powerful hunter of all time.

What Happened In Episode 4?

In Solo Leveling Season 1 Episode 4, Sung uses a magic sword to defeat several Lycans. Afterward, Sung rests for a bit and learns he’s leveled up and improved his stats. He approaches one of the dead Lycan and obtains a Lycan Fang from it. Sung gets into another battle with more Lycans and achieves more levels, a “Wolf Assassin” title, and a teleportation stone.

However, Sung chooses to continue exploring this dungeon to achieve more levels and strength. After a brief scene involving Joohee and her Hunter Association contact, we receive a montage of Sung defeating numerous magic beasts. Additionally, we learn about this dungeon’s color-label difficulty system. Then, Sung travels to an underground area and battles the dungeon’s Kasaka boss. 

The Kasaka gives Sung a great beating at first, but through sheer determination, Sung obtains the strength necessary to defeat it. He’s rewarded wonderfully for his results and gets teleported back to Earth. Then, Sung meets a mercenary, who informs him about a recent dungeon break incident. Sung uses his perception powers to see where the boss is. 

Sung watches a hunter party struggle to defeat the boss. He notices Joohee’s with them. However, she’s still shaken up by the God Statue expedition. Realizing the boss is weaker than him, Sung throws his broken blade at it, which shatters the boss’s defenses. The hunters manage to defeat the boss and one of them notices Sung’s sword on the battleground. 

Before this party member can interrogate Sung, Sung departs. Away from the battlefield, Sung’s surprised he managed to penetrate that boss’s defenses with a broken blade. The episode closes with Joohee wondering if Sung was the one who threw the sword. 

We’ve covered the entire episode with a lengthy recap that touches on all major plot points and discusses the chapter with an accompanying review. You can find that link below.
