Manga Author Counts Down To “ēlDLIVE” Anime

January 8th marks the season’s debut of the ēlDLIVE anime, adapted from the sci-fi manga by Reborn! author Akira Amano. In the days leading up to its debut, Amano has been posting count-down art on social media. 


Crunchyroll describes the series’ premise

Middle school student Chuta Kokonose has heard a voice in his head ever since he can remember. When a strange creature recruits him to the space police force, he learns that the source of the voice is a Monitalien, a symbiotic creature who is living inside his body! Now Chuta must prove his mettle to his cold-hearted coworker, Misuzu, and the rest of the department by protecting the universe from otherworldly criminals.



And, some New Year’s art
