I’m Standing on a Million Lives Season 2 Episode 2 Spoilers
In the season 2 premiere, we are given Keita Torii’s backstory. In his father’s absence, Keita had to step up and help his mother raise his younger brother, Shuuji. That day when he met Yuusuke, he and his brother were forced to do a job by a debt collector. After all of them arrive in the alternate world, Keita gets assigned to the warrior class, much to the irritation of Yuusuke. The heroes receive their new quest: Offer the Jiffron Buffo at Väikdamania.
Keita adapts to his new reality surprisingly fast and even successfully challenges Yuusuke. The group eventually finds Kahabell and discovers that 15 years have passed since they last had been in this world. Kahabell is now a widow with two young children. They spend the night at her home, and Yuusuke reflects on how much Kahabell has changed. The war left a toll on her, both mentally and physically, but she seems to have found peace in her life. Later the two of them speak. Kahabell confesses her feelings for Yuusuke and apologizes for growing older before him. Kusue, Iu, and Yuka have been eavesdropping. They decide they have heard enough. The heroes wonder about their true purpose in this world.
They travel to Jiffron Island on a boat and discover that orcs have taken residence in a local castle. The human islanders were forced to surrender but soon realized that the enemies were there not for conquest but to eat them. They eventually came to an understanding with the orcs, promising them to supply the Jiffron Buffo as an alternate source of food. However, the orc population has radically grown since then, and Jiffron Buffo’s number has significantly decreased.
Their quest is to get one of the Jiffron Buffo to Väikdamania, which is the harvest festival. Pretending to be mercenaries, they agree to help. Meanwhile, the orcs are informed about their arrival. In episode 2, the orcs might attack the residents unexpectedly, prompting Yuusuke and the others to defend them. Keita might continue to prove himself as an exceptional player and kill the orc queen.
