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.

elDLIVE is based off the popular manga of the same name and is an action/ science fiction genre based anime. I have yet to read the source material that the anime is based on but after seeing how enjoyable this anime was I might consider reading it.

Story and setting
The story of elDLIVE revolves around the life of Chuuta Kokonose a fourteen-year-old middle school boy that one day was found himself face to face with an alien and is recruited into an intergalactic police force called elDLIVE.

elDLIVE revolves around Chuta Kokonose, our main protagonist, on his adventures of being an elDLIVE Space Patrol.

Honestly, I am saddened of its rating here in MAL. I am huge fan of Akira Amano since I finished watching/reading the Katekyo Hitman Reborn. And I was very hyped when this came out last January.

Like Katekyo Hitman Reborn, this series started very slow. I think this whole first season is all about character development, since it's only a 12-episode anime. I honestly want more seasons though that may be unlikely since only a few appreciated the anime.

The story started slow in the first few episodes but ...

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.
Small chibi creature that helps main hero? No way you would find something so overused ...
