The effect of an anime adaptation: I’m Standing on a Million Lives manga sells 11x more after anime airs
Sometimes, an anime adaptation can make or break a manga or light novel series. Often times, an anime can make fans more interested in the source material, other times get turned off based on what they saw in an anime. The former seems to be true for Naoki Yamakawa and Akinari Nao’s I’m Standing on a Million Lives (100-Man no Inochi no Ue ni Ore wa Tatteiru) manga. Since the anime premiered, it looks like more people got interested in the isekai manga. For starters, sales of the manga went up by 11 times since the anime first aired.
As for the anime adaptation itself, the Ani-One YouTube channel is currently streaming the series for free and legally via YouTube:
Crunchyroll is also streaming the anime out west, and here’s how they describe its story:
Aloof and logical middle school third-year Yusuke Yotsuya is transported to a game-like alternate world. He becomes a third player and takes on a dangerous quest with his classmates Iu Shindo and Kusue Hakozaki, who were transported there earlier. The cold Yusuke eschews emotionalism and examines all elements with detachment, sometimes even toying with the lives of his companions. Can he protect his party from attacking monsters, difficult incidents, and powerful scheming enemies and win the game?
