Anime lovers, you must have heard the name of the Netflix production titled I’m Standing on a Million Lives which has loosely followed the tracks of a manga series of Japan written by novelist Noki Yamakawa. It became widely popular after the 1st season which aired in October, the previous year.
Although some anime freaks have loved the storytelling and unique plot with interesting characters, some critics and the larger audiences have disapproved of the series calling it too fantastical without any logic. In such a case, will there be a 3rd sequel coming? Read below to find out.
I’m Standing on a Million Lives 3: Release Date
Although the Japanese anime was not disregarded by the critic, both the 1st as well as the 2nd season failed to leave a notable imprint on maximum viewers. The 2nd season which had a premiere on 10th July 2021 and ended on 25th September this year, too was quite bland.
Due to the underwhelming response from the viewers and a low TRP rate, Studio Maho Film is skeptical about renewing this anime further. As a result of negative ratings, monetary issues have also cropped up. Thus, observing such traits it’s likely that we won’t be seeing a 3rd installment of the anime. And even if by any slightest chance the show gets a nod for renewal, it will be released in late 2023!
