Most isekai anime die down after the first season, but I’m Standing on a Million Lives has taken it to a whole new level.
While season one of the anime was considered cliche and bland by many people, details regarding the next season have come out and they seem pretty exciting. The Game Master’s revelation about the world was something that shook everyone.
The stage is now set for the next season, with the new knowledge and new additions to the group.
The official website for I’m Standing on a Million Lives Season 2 released a PV for the anime. The season is set to premiere on July 10th, 2021.
The PV shows the protagonist Yuusuke’s horrifying realization that the virtual world is actually an alternate universe. We also get glimpses of the new duo of Thanzamer and Genda Carter. The group is also shown entering a new island.
The PV also plays the ending theme for the season, “Baddest” by VTuber Kaede Higuchi, in the background.
Additional cast members for the new season were also revealed:
|Thanzamer||Yoshimasa Hosoya||Zapp Renfro (Kekkai Sensen)|
|Genda Carter||Saori Hayami||Saint Martha (Fate/Grand Order)|
The franchise will also air an episode recapping the first season on July 3rd, 2021.
The group knows they are in an alternate reality and everything they do to others is real. It will be interesting to see how the group fare now that they know they can die. Killing without consequence and killing with a conscience is different, something that Yuusuke will realize now.
With the new realization, will the group ever be able to return home? Will they now hesitate to progress? Or will they remain here forever?
About I’m Standing on a Million Lives

The story revolves around Yotsuya Yuusuke, who is transported to another world along with his classmates Shindou Iu and Hakozaki Kusue.
Mythological creatures inhabit this new world. As soon as they arrive, they are greeted by the Game Master, who then grants them a time-limited quest.
Shindou and Hakozaki are given the roles of a Magician and a Warrior to aid the quest. But Yotsuya is randomly assigned the role of a Farmer.
Hence they begin their Isekai adventure for the three, with Yotsuya’s farmer class being the odd one. They must do random quests and defeat monsters they encounter.
