Sung JinWoo’s "REAWAKENING" & His New Leveling System EXPLAINED| SOLO LEVELING

episode 3 it’s like a gamecovering chapters 11 to13 from the Manaand chapters 8 to13 from the web novel Isuppose a creative difference betweenthis scene and the one from the novel isthe inclusion of a female voicedictating what it was the prompts weretelling him it was a voice in his headnot on like rimos interacting with himas he chose whether or not to become aplayer this voice claimed he’d completeda secret Quest then asked repeatedly ifhe’d accept the proposition beingpresented to him the thing aboutaccepting anything from anyone thoughwas that for S Janu who grew up inpoverty he was well aware that there waslikely some sort of price Associated ifthere was one lesson he’d learned inlife it was that nothing in it was freeno matter how generous it was so to himhe knew there would be some sort of costand it was that cost he was consideringas he contemplated the offer for anoffer in which the other choice was toSimply die though there wasn’t reallymuch to think about once his imminentdeath was all but confirmed to him Imean he could literally see the swordcoming closer a millimeter at a time andbehind that were all the weapons fromevery other Statue so as s thought tohimself why not the system responded andtook that as confirmation it didn’t needhim to speak or even say yes as all itrequired was an acceptance of any kindthat’s when s would wake up in a roomvery familiar to him and it’s here theanime makes one major change with theMana the person alongside wuin Chulwasn’t the character we now know as Kangbut instead a less prominent sidecharacter I don’t think we see much oflater the reason I think they changed itto Kang is because unlike the randompartner woo had with him Kang becomesmore prominent in one of the later arcshe’s a more major character than thepartner from the Mona and as such itwould make sense to introduce him now sohis appearance can seem a bit morerelevant later now something to knowabout Woo’s Hunter surveillancedepartment is that as the team in chargeof monitoring and keeping hunters inline they were the strongest out of allthe Departments I mean if your job wasto enforce the law to those who couldabuse their powers to go above it thenit made sense that you’d have to be justas stronger even stronger than them it’sthe very reason this department is theonly one filled with highle HuntersWoo’s been an A- rank Hunter for justover 6 years now and it was throughoutthat time that he felt he’d seen prettymuch everything so when Z differentpeople recounted something he didn’teven know was possible his entire Focusshifted into figuring out how to makesense of it he had reached out to otherguilds and even contacted foreignagencies but no matter how hard helooked not a single person hadexperienced anything remotely close towhat Sun described it was an anomalythat required a bit more out of the- boxtype thinking so we saw hints of thisdring Woo’s conversation in the animebut the full extent of his theory wentbeyond that of just a Reawakening yousee since the undeniable proof was therethat dangerous monsters existed withinthe gate the fact none escaped or wereeven found anywhere inside left theassociation thinking the only possibleanswer was that s Janu took care of themsure this was definitely an absurdpossibility but the fact it was apossibility made it something thatneeded to be considered the associationwasn’t going to rule out anything yetespecially since this was the onlyanswer that made sense of everything sodespite it being so incredibly unlikelythat sju did defeat these Monsters thepossibility he did by Reawakening neededto be checked out anyway and it was theidea that sun had become this all newpowerful hunter that left woo excited tofigure out whether he did or not theydidn’t really show this in the anime butthere was a genuine excitement to woo ashe waited in anticipation of seeing whats had reawakened into reason being thatafter hearing the horror stories of thetypes of enemies s was up against todefeat them all while also beingunconscious was a level of power thatcould very well go even beyond thes-rank it was a thought that left woocurious as to the type of power theywould be dealing with that’s why in thecase this did turn out to be somethingbeyond the s-rank all information aboutthe incident was made confidential onlythose involved would ever get to knowabout it they had also placed s in aprivate room to keep things tight thenprovided him with the best medicalassistance since he was possibly aperson of high value now woo may havebeen thinking a bit too ambitioushimself though since the thought of sbeing a nation level Hunter wasn’t outof the realm of possibility either tohim he felt anyone strong enough to dealwith a monster capable of disintegratingpeople could very well be up there atthat Godly Nation rank this was a leaguehigh above the S rank where the hunterswithin are set to be stronger than evennukes they were a rare breed ofindividuals whose might could only berivaled by each other Global superpowersthat swayed the very authority of entirenations less than 10 existed in theentire world and with sun possibly beingthe first from Korea the very idea madewoo ecstatic he was reving in thethought that such a power could be bornright here in his country it was when wosaw that the number was 10 though thathis disappointment was immeasurable andday ruined in fact with the average e-rank Hunter being between 70 to 100magic power the idea Sun had evenqualified to be a hunter was welllaughable to woo it was a genuinemiracle that he was even alive right nowwoo had even gone and checked s’shistorical records and what he foundthere was even more disappointing thanthe test he just did reason being thatin the four years Sun had been a hunterfor he had actually grown weaker sincehis initial power was ranked at 12 fromthen to now he had gone from 12 magicpower to 10 magic power obviously thiswas due to getting a fresh reset by thesystem but since a margin of two waswithin the range of error for thetesting machine wo thought nothing of itthen left immediately he neither told Suwhat he saw nor answered his questionsbut instead just thanked him for histime then walked away leaving s bothconfused and disappointed what hethought was going to be the answer toall his problems was instead just anaive dream and hopeless delusion I meanaside from feeling really rejuvenatedthere was nothing about him that feltinherently different he could tell justfrom that that he definitely couldn’thave defeated those statues perhaps noteven if he did reawaken s would thenthink about two s-rank hunters andwonder if they could do it but withprofiles like theirs being kept largelyin secet secret the only thing he knewabout them was that they were regardedhighly there was nothing else to say forhow they fought or how strong they werenow before I move on to the next scenewith Jenna to quickly highlight smalldetails from the Mana W’s Expressionscarried a bit of tiredness likely toshow just how much he’s always workingthe manam meter housed a core costing 1billion one and the magic Beast it camefrom was said to be A- ranked then whenwo was recounting what happened to theother survivors Sun had stopped himright before he got to Kim which whichin turn led him to think back on how heabandoned him this was probably the parts regretted the most since if he wasjust a little bit stronger things couldhave been different he hated hisinability to help out song and he hatedeven more the way Kim Justified hisselfish desire to leave one last thingwas a thought from Woo which was anoff-handed remark made immediately afters’s testing as soon as he saw hisranking was 10 he immediately acceptedthat trash would always be trash it wasa thought that highlighted the Prejudice- rank’s yet for being weak which wasmore so shown in the anime when sun wasfighting in the dungeons for the firsttime this wasn’t the only anime originalscene we were given though since thelarge majority of the episode went toShowcase other characters there was Juiand her almost visit with S A seeminglyunnecessary scene showing the nurseslooking for S Wu reporting back to thechairman in the car then chahin gettingher position as raid leader all thesewere original to the anime and all forthe most part slowed the pacing down abit another Exposition type original wasthe opening of the gate itself which wasactually quite interesting it did wellto highlight the way that Society hadadapted to them I’m sure at first theywere this extremely shocking phenomenonbut now as shown through these scenes inthe anime they’re nothing more than aminor inconvenience a standard part oflife that you’ll see in the news and ifthey happen to be on your way to workyou’ll just have to take a detour thiswas a cool way of showing how gates arenow just a part of life and it does wellto emphasize that modern part of thisfantasy now switching back to s’s timein the hospital when his sister came inshe was actually crying a lot normallyshe would come in and just start hittingand scolding him but this time she wasballing her eyes out while doing so itwas a scene that made s look deeply intojust how stupid he’s been recently aftercoming close to death so many timesbefore he couldn’t understand why he wasso willing to put himself through all ofthat so from now on he knew the mostimportant thing was to come back alivefor a bit more information on Jenna shewas one of the top students at herschool now before she was this girl whocould never be separated from videogames but after her mother got sickthat’s when she became a proper studentstudying in hopes of one day becoming adoctor this brings us now to Sun’sinitial exposure to the leveling systemwhich in the novels was surprisinglyflushed out a lot more not only were histhoughts a lot more human but hisapproach to handling it was a lot moreinquisitive so when he saw the promptsand was trying to make sense of them hisinitial thoughts were that this was PTSDor something he never believed that theywere truly there and instead chocked itup to him being crazy when he traversedthe prompts and found the quest the listof exercises he found inside made himcertain that this really was an illusionI mean if it really was that easy tomake oneself stronger then a workoutlike that would be something everyonewould be doing so what s thought thiswas to him was the product of hisintense desire to become strongerperhaps his mind was relaying what hisbody wanted and the result of such anurge was the screen in front of him ahallucination fueled by Passion he wouldthen try to ignore it by laying down butthe more time passed and the more hethought to himself the more he began tofeel that maybe he should try it therewas this ramping suspicion that maybethis was the real thing so as he got upto give the quest a try Sun wouldstretch his arms and proceed to do 100half-hearted elevated push-ups they weredefinitely not the full push-ups thequests intended him to do but push-upsnonetheless which he felt weresatisfactory of course nothing changedwhen he finished and it was that lack ofproof which led him to ignore thesedelusions for good now now it’s when weget to the Penalty quest in thealternate Dimension that a few peculiarthings were worth noting about it thefirst was the lack of wind in what wasclearly an outdoors environment then thenext was the empty sky with literallynothing in it the sky was black with nosun moon or even Stars yet despite zerovisible light source whatsoever somecould still see clearly as if there waslight around him it was a weirdphenomenon that made made wherever thiswas even more strange the centipedeswere described to be taller than afive-story building and all in all therewere about seven chasing him by the timeit was over the nurse and Doctor Who hadcome in to help had revealed more abouts’s particular circumstance aside from sbeing a person who the hunterAssociation requested special care forthe hospital he was sent to was onespecifically dedicated to Hunters it wasa place in which many Hunters met theirend a fate the nurse was far toofamiliar with and when she could onlyhope the same wouldn’t be said for Sluckily he was just on the floor coveredin sand but there was some fresh bloodright where his hands were it was theproduct of a cut he’d received shortlybefore but one that was gone right asthe nurse had checked him fast forwardto after su’s first completion of hisdailies and a set of active and passiveskills could be seen available to himthere was a blank passive at a Max Levelunknown to us the unyielding Spiritpassive decreasing all damage receivedwent below 30% then the Sprint activeinre increasing movement speed at a costof one Mana per minute the unknownpassive was something there from thevery beginning but the other two weregained while running away from thecentipedes so in this new system that’soperated just like a video game it seemsskills are gained by doing repetitiveactions meaning a certain criteria it’snot stated in the anime just howinvaluable such an ability is but to putinto context why it is skills can’t everbe gained by normal Hunters whateverskills they receive upon their Awakeningare the skills their with unless theyhave a Reawakening the only way a huntercould ever learn a new skill without oneis through the use of runestones foundonly by the slaying of magical beasts soon the rare occasions when an A ors-rank Monster is killed a runstone willsometimes drop which could then be usedto UE a hunter with a new skill the RunStones often vary in the skills theyimbue but depending on whether it’s agood or bad one they could be sold atauction for either hundreds of thousandsor millions in fact the last runstoneSun could remember being sold was a rarehealing one that taught the ability torestore any injury such a skill hadcaught the eye of an anonymous foreigns-rank Hunter and it was them who hadbought it for their entire wallet of 52million so if such a skill could beworth that much the value of all theselesser ones was to him unfathomable sureSprint and unyielding Spirit may not beworth billions but they were definitelyuseful even with their High Mana costnow to add a bit more justification tohis 100% strength build intelligence andperception were skills that just didn’tseem useful to him since he knew he wasa fighter type Hunter to him what heneeded most was strength agility andvitality mostly strength since that’swhat he thought would make thingseasiest s would then try and lift hisbed to see if it made a difference butwith no memory on what it weighed beforehe had no way to distinguish whether thebed was just light or he had gottenstronger he would then add three morepoints from the reward he got from thepenalty Quest and it was this time thatthe bed felt significantly lighter itwas a result of being 60% % strongerthan how he was 5 minutes ago so s wasecstatic that the fact the system wasreal and decided to vent this excitementby lifting all the other Furniture inthe room he was blown away by thethought of being able to become strongerevery day even if his level wasn’tsomething he could raise just being ableto improve his stats was enough for himit was a thought he’d dreamt about foryears now turned reality one he kneweveryone was always laughing at him foryet one that was now possible despiteall that adversity to him this was anopportun he wasn’t going to squander ofcourse the phenomenon still could havebeen a second Awakening so in order tofind out whether it really was or not swent to the internet to do some researchhe would use the computer right there inhis special VIP Hospital Suite thenscour the internet for pretty muchanything whether it be sites accessibleonly to Hunters or information he neededto pay for S gathered all he could onthe topic of Reawakening unfortunatelynone matched up with what he was goingthrough so the only conclusion he couldmake was was that this was different hehad even posted on a Hunter forum to seeif anyone knew anything but the onlyresponses he got were the ones callinghim crazy so with all that researchcoming up with nothing Sun trulybelieved himself to be something specialnow for all he knew he was the onlyHunter with this ability a unique casewith a unique system the limits of whichhe intended to explore with zerohesitation the next scene was the actualopening of the pen and bandages Sun hadmentioned in the anime which for themost part wouldn’t be that important ifnot for the two valuable things he hadlearned from it the first was that theinformation prompt only popped up toitems held in inventory and the secondwas the fact that he had an inventory itwas a pocket space in which everythinghe earned could be stored inside he hadexpected such a thing to be empty but tohis surprise Kim’s sword was right therewaiting for him this $2,000 sword he haddesperately picked up back in the templewas now his to use whenever he wantedthere was a chance Kim would ask for itback if he ever saw s use it but t sthis and his new powers were all thingshe earned they were hardfought rewardshe had zero intent on ever giving backin fact if anything the encounter in thetemple had given him even more than thatit had reinforced the notion that heneeded to become strong then made itclear that there was no merit in beingneedlessly kind since his last kindnesswas rewarded with betrayal s vowed tonever put his life in danger for anyoneagain he would never risk himself underthe false precept of the greater goodand above all put his life first so ifwe were to sum up the two things scommitted to here the first would be hiscommitment to becoming stronger and thesecond desire to become cold I know thatdoes sound a little bit edgy but s was aman who didn’t forget his lessons he wasburned before so now he just wanted toprevent that now the novel does carry onwith more stuff at the hospital butsince I think that’s going to be shownsomewhere in the next episode I’ll leavethings here and cover the instancedungeon next week this week actually hadquite a bit of cut contents so I hopeyou enjoyed hearing it as much as Ienjoyed reading it it was interesting tosee the slower Pace at which sapproached his new system and I thinkthat last bit really sets the foundationfor his character
