Synopsis

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 strangely-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, although 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 aptitude test after being urged by the voice in his head and to prove Misuzu wrong.

Background

As part of the JUMP START initiative, the first three chapters of ēlDLIVE were published in English in VIZ Media's digital Weekly Shonen Jump from September 29 to October 20, 2014.

I'll try to keep this short for those who are new to amano's works:

If you don't fall in love with any of the characters, ships characters together or really like the art, don't read it.
Why?
Because her work rarely have much more than that. Will elDLIVE be a rare case though? We'll see.

It's not that the story/plot is bad. It wasn't, really. They were quite creative and it has some interesting twists too, the problem is that it was very cringey, like, majorly cringey. I'm talking about Inazuma Eleven's "we must save soccer because it is love and it is life" level of cringe. Maybe not read more

I'll keep my review simple since I agree with the review written before me.

TL;DR at the bottom

Storyline

Typical but interesting. You can take a preexisting genre and make it work. What matters is the execution. This just as in plot standpoint is the your typical shonen manga you've seen rising in popularity over the recent years:

Weak protagonist is weak, meets some supernatural force, some outer force threatens loved ones/world, protagonist gets stronger by the POWER OF FRIENDSHIP, and eventually defeats threat.

The overarching plot seems to dwell with memories, emotional/psychological trauma, growing up, friendship (duh), and relationships with loved ones coupled with a sci-fi space cops theme. read more

First of all, I would like to get this out of the way and say that this is a mostly negative review and it would be fine to read this review without telling me to "change my mind" if I read more of elDLIVE, which I doubt would ever pick up again. Why? well, I will explain it. Also, keep in mind, that I will compare Amano's previous work "Reborn!", so if you haven't seen that, you might not understand what I'm saying at times.


Plot: Kokonose Chuuta is a middle school boy that hears voices in his head and occasionally even talks to read more
