Okay, so I started with this series because I was such a big fan of Akira Amano's previous work, "Katekyo Hitman Reborn!" and because I just randomly bumped into the teaser of the anime on Facebook. With all honesty, the series peaked at my interest as soon as I saw the trailer (which is actually the main reason why I also started reading the manga as soon as it says "From the author of Katekyo Hitman Reborn!")

Anyways, the story is a bit slow in pace but I'm pretty sure it's going to go in the right direction (I'm also up to date with the manga read more

I'm writing this review because I just don't understand the score that this show gets. At the moment it's less than a 6 on MAL.

The author who wrote this is the same as Hitman Reborn and I read the manga for this anime myself so I can say it gets a little better later on.

It's not by any chance a bad anime, I'll put it as average and up at best. We have a typical shounen lead who's shy and useless but gets powerful sooner or later and a tsundere female lead. We get some character development but it's just the starting arc at read more

This is a spoilerless review. This is my first ever review and I have only seen 6 episodes so forgive me for any mistakes.

First Impressions:

Most of the time I find shows overrated, with scores often well above what I'd consider a fair score, so when I found eldLive with a measly ~5.9 score I was expecting an awful cringefest, but that's not at all what I found, what I found was a fairly average but enjoyable show and I am still confused why its score doesn't even reach 6.00.

This being said, elDLIVE is no masterpiece, and has some core problems preventing me from giving it read more

Becoming an Officer is never easy. There are people who would depend on you to protect the city. It is your job to make sure that happens. But what happens when you are to suddenly go up into space, take a test, and become an officer, as a middle schooler so to speak. It's not gonna be easy isn't it...?

For all the hate it's getting, as much as this anime is not very good..I'm actually well...Enjoying it.
I will be reviewing this as an anime-only watcher.

ēlDLIVE is probably the shittiest show I have ever watched till this day, and I watched School days, Bloodivores, Shuumatsu no Izetta etc. But this is cringiest to the point where even I, with abnormal tolerance for cringe can't stand it any longer. Animation is shit, sound can't be that bad so it gets mediocre, characters are so cringy, poor and annoying that it gives me cancer. Even Gucchi, who I thought was going to be the bad guy who is not a fucking joke ended up being as cheesy as everyone else. Don't watch this unless you want to experience a total garbage of read more

Eidlive is like one generic shonen anime. Is it bad or good? Honestly i enjoyed this anime. Yeah sometimes the dialog cringe but Overrall its ref refreshing. I really like how the character is goofy and weird its like watching nanatsu no taizai without the blood and gore. Good anime isn't about blood and gore and this anime nailed it. Give it a try and enjoy the anime you used to watch in your Childhood.

Of course for every good show there is bound one drawback. Well it depend on the people but i think the organization Eidlive have a very little explanation. Its really read more
