ēlDLIVE is serialized on Shueisha's Shonen Jump + ("Plus") website and smart phone manga app. The series involves a young boy named Chuta Kokonose who is socially ostracized because he hears voice that no one else can hear. It turns out Chuta isn't suffering from a mental illness, but rather he has been scouted by the space police organization "ēlDLIVE" to be a protector of intergalactic peace.
