An official website opened for a television anime adaptation of Naoki Yamakawa and Akinari Nao's 100-man no Inochi no Ue ni Ore wa Tatteiru (I'm Standing on a Million Lives) manga on Tuesday, scheduled to air in October 2020. The website also revealed the main cast, staff, a teaser promotional video, and the first key visual (pictured).

Synopsis
Yotsuya Yuusuke along with his classmates Shindou Iu and Hakozaki Kusue have been transported to a strange and unknown world inhabited by mythological creatures. As soon as they arrive, they meet somebody calling himself the Game Master who then grants them a time-limited quest. To aid them in this quest, he also bestows Shindou and Hakozaki with the roles of a Magician and a Warrior while Yotsuya is randomly granted the role of... a Farmer?!

This is how a hectic life of adventuring began for three students who now have no choice, but to complete random quests for several phases in the fantasy world if they want to stay alive and protect the real world from the demons and monsters they encounter. (Source: MU)

the story is good for an isekai but there has been a lot of anime of MC (males) being the weakest but it sometimes turns into good and epic twist i like an balance anime there are some animes that just go sideways

Ok, this is unexpected, never knew that this manga series will be getting an anime adaptation

Hopefully the studio will execute well, because I can see that the cast hasn't got over the 4th phase yet, which is around vol 1-3

Can't wait to watch this actually. I thought the character design would be the same as the guy who did trinity seven, but it does look good and there are some scenes on the pv that aren't shown onto the manga that shows yusuke's past somehow.

I like the manga. The art from same author of trinity seven makes it even more interesting.

I always thought that the manga was an adaptation of some light novel series. Kinda surprised that it's not based off of anything. But that summary just screams "generic isekai". Titles pretty cool sounding tho (and edgy af).
technically more of survival game than traditional isekai imho.

The title is dope af, but the plot is... kinda mediocre? Did anyone read the manga, is it good?

Aaahah. Now they have taken and sullied this perfect title in the Japanese copyright. Just imagining the possibilities... the industry is getting nowhere. It needs a shock as strong as Coronav...

it has sexual violence in it (does it?)

not visually, or at least impactful enough for me to remember, but it does have implication of that.

This is where the fun begins starts writing down the release schedule

It seems to me to be a promising anime

Doesn't look it will be a good anime but I will watch it, just to see if I'm right or wrong

That's a big fat meh for me.
Looks average af.
Pass.

so isekai? It has something of special or just resort to the shock value?

has really nice concept but mediocre execution. one of arc literally inspired by drug war, but fall into battle action fantasy simplification in the end, rinse and repeat.


When I first saw this manga in my recs I thought it was an extremely dark battle royale story. I’m a bit disappointed it’s not. I still think about giving it a try though, unless it has sexual violence in it (does it?)

Never heard of it. I guess based on the stats it's not really that popular as well? Hopefully it's gonna be something dark.. and epic..?

is it dark? yes, is it epic? i guess... the closest i could think of is mix of psyren and tanya the evil.

Sounds fairly interesting to be frankly honest so I’ll just keep an eye on this for now.

Staff seems fairly average, if I’m to be brutally honest, but the cast nice overall.
