Solo Leveling 7.5 Is One of Crunchyroll’s Most Disliked Episodes of All Time




Solo Leveling Episode 7.5, titled “How to Get Stronger,” is now among the most disliked Crunchyroll episodes of all time.

Episode 7.5 of Solo Leveling was initially released on Feb. 24, 2024. Described as “Jinwoo recaps the events of the story so far, from his humble beginnings as the Weakest Hunter of All Mankind to his newfound power and renewed purpose,” the recap episode now has a shocking 65.7k dislikes compared to 31.1k likes, making it one of the most disliked episodes on the platform in history — if not the most.


“Spontaneous and Organic and Pure”: Solo Leveling ADR Director Dishes on Anime’s Dub

Solo Leveling’s ADR director explains the complex process behind English dubs and incorporating dub VA “magic” and “spontaneous” performances.

While Crunchyroll doesn’t maintain a public database of anime likes and dislikes, more people showed up to dislike Solo Leveling Episode 7.5 than to like various episodes of the most popular series. Multiple episodes of Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2, the My Hero Academia Season 6 episode “Deku vs. Class A,” which was nominated for the Hollywood Critics Association’s 2023 TV Awards, and the finale to the “Wano” arc from One Piece are all notable examples.

While Solo Leveling Episode 7.5 has gained the unfortunate moniker of the most disliked episode in Crunchyroll history, this is likely more a testament to its massive fan base and the desire for more entertaining episodes. It’s also currently one of the world’s most popular TV series according to IMDb. While it’s currently unclear why Episode 8 was originally delayed, production issues or special programs on Japanese TV being given precedence could explain it. The official Solo Leveling PR account on X (formerly Twitter) announced that Episode 8, perhaps aptly titled, “This is Frustrating,” would air instead on March 2, 2024.


Crunchyroll CEO: “We Were Responsible for Solo Leveling’s Production, Our Fans Wanted It”

In a bombshell admission from Crunchyroll CEO Rahul Purini, he describes how the company managed to push the Solo Leveling anime’s production through.

Following the recap episode and beyond, the future of the Solo Leveling anime appears especially bright. CBR’s exclusive interview with Solo Leveling ADR director Caitlin Glass and Jin-woo voice actor Aleks Le teases that upcoming episodes will leave fans on the edge of their seats. Glass, who has been involved in pre-production for over a year, added, “You’re probably [going to be] blown away going, ‘I can’t believe they just did that! That just happened and someone had to animate that!'”

The hype behind the Solo Leveling series won’t end with the anime either, with Crunchyroll announcing the documentary series The Leveling of Solo Leveling. Fellow anime producer Netmarble has also announced the release window for the Solo Leveling: Arise game.
