Unfortunately there is no official announcement about season 3 yet. So we can’t confirm when the 3rd season will come out. But we can anticipate it by comparing the video distribution, manga sales and popularity of the both anime and manga. And find out the possibility of making “I’m Standing on a Million Lives Season 3” and it’s release date.
“I’m Standing on a Million Lives” is based on the manga serialized in the separate Shonen Magazine by the author Naoki Yamakawa and the drawing Akinari Nao. It is a popular work that has exceeded the cumulative circulation of 2 million copies in the series as of July 2021.
In addition to the novel setting that the mysterious game master suddenly summons you to a different world and you have to digest the quest, the story that actually reflects the problems of the real world is gaining popularity.
Such “I’m Standing on a Million Lives”, but the second season of the anime broadcast in just over half a year after the end of the first season of the anime! The final episode of the second season of anime is approaching. But at this time, there are no announcements regarding sequel production from the official website.
Therefore, this time, we will thoroughly analyze the possibility of producing “I’m Standing on a Million Lives Season 3′.
Is there a possibility of producing “I’m Standing on a Million Lives season 3”?
Consideration from the stock of the original manga
|Season||Original manga / novel volume number|
|The first season of animation||Original Manga Volumes 1-5|
Novel “~ Death Journey ~”
As of September 19, 2021, up to 12 volumes of the original manga of “I’m Standing on a Million Lives” have been released, of which the original is up to the 5th lap of the quest. The contents of volumes 1 to 5 of the manga have been animated.
And the 6th lap of the quest is based on the novel “I’m Standing on One Million Lives-Journey of Death”.
Even if the third season of anime is produced, I think that the drug material will be NG. So I think that the 6th lap of the original manga quest “Iharu Nemore Drug War Edition” will be cut. “Ihar Nemore Narcotic War Edition” corresponds to the contents of volumes 6 to 10 in the original manga.
In that case, the third season of animation will be from the 7th lap of the quest “Black Labor Kingdom Edition” from Volume 11. This is an episode about a black company, so it won’t be NG.
In that case, the stock of the original manga will be two volumes. So even if a sequel is produced, it seems that it will be necessary to take some time.
Consideration from the sales of the original manga
Next, from the sales of the original manga, we will verify the possibility of producing the third season of animation “I’m Standing on One Million Lives”.
As mentioned at the beginning, the cumulative circulation of the series as of July 2021 has exceeded 2 million. Although the circulation is not so remarkable as an anime based on manga sales may be further increasing because the second season of TV animation is currently being broadcast.
In addition, since the 6th lap of the quest is drawn based on the novel “~ Death Journey ~”, we can expect to increase the sales of the novel.
Recently, the cumulative circulation of the series has often increased at a stretch, starting with anime broadcasting. So depending on future sales, we can expect enough for the production of the third period of animation.
Consideration from disk sales
Next, we will explore the possibility of producing the third season of animation from the sales status of the discs (Blu-ray and DVD) of the anime.
It is generally said that when the average number of discs sold exceeds 4,000 to 5,000, the animation production committee makes a profit, and it is easy to gain momentum in sequel production.
|title||Average number of sales|
|Anime 1st and 2nd term||?? Sheet|
The disc of “I’m Standing on One Million Lives” is scheduled to be released only in the Blu-ray BOX, and there is only one volume including all 24 episodes of the first and second seasons of animation. It has become.
Therefore, normally, the disc sales data for the first period of animation should be available. But since the above Blu-ray BOX is scheduled to be released on September 29, 2021, the disc sales will be breaking news. It will be from now on.
For reference, if you check Amazon’s top-selling rankings that have already accepted reservations, on September 15, 2021, the result was 1,276 in the Blu-ray animation category.
The ranking is still close to two weeks before the release, so it is just for reference, but it is a lower ranking compared to other animations at the same time.
In the end, it seems difficult to achieve an average of 4,000 to 5,000 disc sales unless the ranking is raised to the extent that it is in the top 100. And in terms of disc sales, the possibility of producing the third season of animation seems to be low.
Consideration from the popularity of video distribution
Finally, from the popularity of video distribution, we will explore the possibility of producing the third season of animation.
Recently, with the rise of subscriptions, video distribution services have become widespread, and it is becoming more common for video distribution revenue to cover disk sales.
As for the revenue from video distribution, if there is exclusive distribution that NetFlix, Amazon Prime Video, etc. are actively doing, we can expect the revenue that the sequel production will be decided by that alone. But unfortunately There is no service that exclusively distributes “I’m Standing on a Million Lives”.
Therefore, attention will be focused on the revenue according to the number of views in each video distribution service. As an index to measure the number of views, the popularity ranking of video distribution services can be used as a reference.
Looking at the weekly ranking of the d anime store, which is popular as a video distribution service specializing in anime, on September 15, 2021, the result was 13th.
It is a low ranking in the 2021 summer animation, and it is expected that it is not growing well. However, the number of “worrisome” that can be said to be the number of favorites registered in the d anime store has exceeded 100,000, and it can be seen that it has acquired stable fans from the first period.
The popularity of video distribution alone is not the level at which sequel production will be decided immediately. But even if disk sales are sluggish, it seems that we can expect profits that can cover a little.
I’m Standing on a Million Lives Season 3 Release Date
|Title||Broadcast period||Interval with the previous work|
|The first period of animation||October-December 2020||– –|
|The second phase of anime||July-September 2021||Half a year|
Finally, if “I’m Standing on a Million Lives season 3” is produced, when it will be? we will predict when the broadcast date will be.
First, looking at the broadcast intervals between the first and second periods of animation, the second period is being broadcast in just over half a year after the end of the first period.
However, as you can see from the way the discs are sold, it is probable that the production had been carried out in advance assuming the second period. If anything, it is an image closer to the 1st and 2nd cools rather than the 1st and 2nd cools.
Regarding the third season of animation, it seems that you will make a decision while looking at the sales of the disc and the original. At present, it has not gained popularity enough to confirm the production of the third season of animation immediately. So it is highly likely that we will see the situation for a while.
Also, due to concerns about the stock of the original, we expect that the broadcast date for the third season of the anime will be after October 2023, two years later at the earliest.
- There is 40% chance of making I’m Standing on a Million Lives season 3
- Broadcast date is expected to be after October 2023
- The third period of animation is expected to start from the 11th volume of the original manga
It is the third season of the TV animation “I’m Standing on a Million Lives”. But considering the sales forecast of the disc and the popularity of video distribution, the possibility of sequel production is 40%, which is a little low. Is it the place where I said?
