Chuuta Kokonose is an orphan who lives with his aunt. For as long as he can remember, he's had a voice in his head, but other than that he's a normal boy—right until the day when a strange-looking thing follows him home and teleports him to a place filled with more fantastic creatures. It's a space police station, and Rein Brickke, the Chief of Solar System Department, tells him that he's been chosen by the computer as a possible candidate to join the police force. Misuzu Sonokata, a girl from Chuuta's school with an angelic face and ill temper who turns out to be one of Rein Brickke's subordinates, doesn't think him suitable for such a job. Chuuta, who was shocked at first, decides to take the aptitude test after being urged by the voice in his head and to prove Misuzu wrong.

Seeing how its rating isn't exactly high, I thought I needed to justify just how good (or bad) this series actually is.

As most of you reading this might already know, this series was written by the very same author who brought us Katekyo Hitman Reborn. However, going into this series thinking and expecting it to match the quality of Reborn isn't the way to go.

elDLIVE is really just a simple, shounen series with not much complications regarding the plot or characters. Almost everything about it is as straightforward as it can get or, as some people would call it, predictable. But this doesn't read more

How I made it to the end... I wonder...
Okay, I'll tell you.
Why I even begin to watch it? I've watched Reborn series in the past. I didn't like it. Once again, why I even begin to watch ēlDLIVE? Ah, yes, I know. That's because I'm very kind soul who's inclined to give people second chances so they can show they've became better. Yup. I gave such chance to the author. (Hope you would believe)

The story is so unique! It doesn't resemble Reborn's story in any possible way.

I had a pretty hard time deciding what score I want to give this show- Because i'll be honest, I don't think it's good- but still, something pushed me to give it a 5 insead of a 4. And i'm still not sure what it is, but here is the review anyway.

The art of this show was definetly unique and I did not see many like it in other anime, which was cool. I found myself debating weather or not I liked it or not, but I think I will leave that for you to decide on your own. The animation sometimes felt a read more
