A website was opened up recently by Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. The website revealed that Akira Amano’s ēlDLIVE manga would be receiving an anime adaptation. The anime will premiere sometime in 2017 and will be produced by Studio Pierrot. Studio Pierrot has produced other anime adaptations such as Naruto Shippūden and Tokyo Ghoul.
A PV for the manga was streamed by Weekly Shonen Jump back in 2013. You can check that video out below.
ēlDLIVE is written and illustrated by Akira Amano. Amano is known for both writing and illustrating the Reborn! manga. ēlDLIVE was first published by Shueisha in their Jump Live app in 2013. It was launched in full color. The manga then moved to Shueisha’s new app, Shonen Jump+ in 2014. There are currently 4 volumes published for the manga and a 5th volume is set to release soon.
The first three chapters of the series were published in English by Viz Media. Viz Media published the chapters in 2014 as part of their “Jump Start” initiative. They described the manga as follows:
“Mumbling” Chuta Kokonose doesn’t have many friends. In fact, the only conversations he has anymore are with voices inside his head. Little does he know that this voice doesn’t mean he’s crazy. It just means he has an alien living inside his body!
The anime for ēlDLIVE is set to premiere in 2017. In the future more details about the anime will be revealed in Shueisha’s Shonen Jump+ app.
