elDLIVE, the anime airing this season created by studio Pierrot has many great qualities to it. The 2017 winter anime based on the currently running manga series by Akira Amano, the author of the hit series Katekyo Hitman Reborn, has had quite the first impression. Overall, I think it will be alright. I will continue to watch it to the end.

The overall story seems ok. The idea of an intergalactic space police has been a rinse and repeat cycle. However, the Migi like creature growing out of Chuuta brings me closer into the series as a whole. The art style is quite crisp and bright and has quite contrast to the manga style which was blurry and more pastel.  I did enjoy the jiggle physics they put in for the blob blob monster, The main character is something more of an acquired taste. Just as with Sawada Tsunayoshi, we are going to have to wait for Chuuta to become more badass, but for right now he is an average main character. Sonokata Misuzuis your typical cold kuudere that will probably show her colors of feelings later on in the story. My favorite scene overall was where they referenced that “The next head of the Italian mafia will be Japanese” creating a direction to the world of Katekyo Hitman Reborn.

Overall, I give it a 7/10. Nothing special just yet but it gets a 7 just because of that amazing reference that made me chuckle.
