Standing on a Million Lives Season 3 is a highly anticipated sequel, thanks to the success and popularity of its first two seasons in 2020 and 2021. The series quickly established itself as one of the best isekai survival stories, amassing a massive fan base waiting for a new season for over 2 years now.
The anime series ‘Standing on a Million Lives,’ is based on the manga series written by Naoki Yamakawa and illustrated by Akinari Nao. The story revolves around trio Yuusuke Yotsuya, Iu Shindo, and Kusue Hakozaki who are transported to a game by a mysterious creature, offering them immortality.
Many fans have been wondering if there will be more episodes of the Standing on a Million Lives anime. Here is the latest information available regarding a potential third season in 2023. Have there been any recent news or official updates confirming the release of season 3?
Will There Be A Season 3 Of Standing on a Million Lives?
Standing on a Million Lives season 3 is yet to be officially announced. However, it seems very unlikely we will get more episodes of the series, given the anime’s poor Blu-ray sales and low manga sales. Additionally, the second half of Season 2 consists of anime original/filler content.
The Standing on a Million Lives anime has not been a financially successful series. Seasons 1 and 2 had low sales, with less than 500 copies sold per Blu-ray, and the latest manga volume 17, sold fewer than 50,000 copies. Additionally, there are no figures and fewer than 150 pieces of merch made for the series.
So, when it comes to the release date, I have serious doubts that we will ever see Standing on a Million Lives Season 3 Episode 1. Anime original endings are often used when there’s no intention to adapt more, which confirms that you should not expect a third season.
Where to Start Reading The Manga?
The two seasons of the Standing on a Million Lives anime cover manga volumes 1 to 5, after that the anime changes from the manga. So if you want to continue the story after what the first two seasons adapted, have a look at Standing on a Million Lives Manga Volume 6 in English.
The Standing on a Million Lives manga is not yet complete, but there is a clear plan for its conclusion. Kodansha revealed that Naoki Yamakawa and Akinari Nao’s I’m Standing on a Million Lives manga entered its “final decisive battle” on June 9, 2023.
I highly recommend checking out the Standing on a Million Lives manga. Sixteen out of 17 volumes are available in English, allowing you to enjoy the story close to the Japanese version.
In conclusion, the prospects for Standing on a Million Lives Season 3 do not look promising. The best way to continue the story is by reading the manga. Waiting for a third season seems pointless in my opinion. I would love to be proven wrong, but everything suggests that it won’t receive more seasons.
I also looked at many other series, so if you are a fan of any of these series, then check them out:
