I’m Standing on a Million Lives Season 3 Release Date
‘I’m Standing on a Million Lives’ season 2 released on Tokyo MX on July 10, 2021, and after a 12-episode run concluded on September 25, 2021. Maho Film has animated the isekai series with Kumiko Habara helming the directorial team and Takao Yoshioka leading the writing staff.
As far as season 3 of the show is concerned, here’s everything we could gather so far. The isekai fantasy series has not been renewed by Studio Maho Film or any other company involved with the production. Unfortunately, the reviews of the anime have been underwhelming. Although there has been a marked difference in the animation compared to the first season, the show still has failed to perform as well as it was expected to.
The average viewership and ratings are bad signs, but there are other factors that come into consideration with anime renewals. ‘I’m Standing on a Million Lives’ can turn things around after two mediocre seasons if sales of Blu-Ray box sets and the manga show a promising jump.
Unfortunately, in the last few months, Naoki Yamakawa’s mangas had failed to replicate its success of 2020 when sales increased 11 times. Even if the trends were to change, fans still have a long wait ahead of themselves. We estimate that ‘I’m Standing on a Million Lives’ season 3 will premiere sometime in Q3 or Q4 2023.
