ēlDLIVE is an action Sci-Fi manga written and illustrated by Akira Amano. The series began in mid 2013 and is being published under Shueisha’s smartphone application Shonen Jump+ (formerly Jump Live). To date a total of 6 compiled volumes have been published. Amano is known for her 2004-2012 Katekyou Hitman Reborn! manga, which was also adapted into an anime in 2006.

Here is the series synopsis from MAL:

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.
