As someone who enjoyed the first season of Freezing, I found Vibration to be very disappointing for several reasons, but first I will cover the good points of this series.
Story - (Synopsis from Freezing)
The story hasn't changed, Set in a slightly futuristic world where Earth has been invaded and is at war with aliens from another dimension called the Nova, the story follows the adventures of a Japanese boy named Kazuya Aoi who enrolls for training at a special school for genetically modified girls called Pandoras who battle the aliens, and their male partners, called Limiters, who use a special power called "freezing" to limit their opponent's mobility. The protagonist makes the acquaintance of an unusual older girl named Satellizer el Bridget who appears to be the most powerful Pandora in her class, but has not yet chosen a male partner to be her Limiter, and in spite of the warnings of all his friends, he decides to be her Limiter.
This isn't your typical School/Romance/Harem in my opinion, it is quite different which actually holds a plot - defeating the aliens combining forces of one female, also known as a Pandora and one male who is called the Limiter; although one boy has a different type of power being the younger sibling of the greatest Pandora to exist, where he can use his 'full' freezing power for anyone he fights with and all the Pandoras fight over him. I rated the story an 8, based upon the two seasons.
Now for the art, exactly the same as the first Freezing, it is remarkable. The detail put in, each snowflake falling and all the detail put in to the characters, background and the whole surface of it, it's clearly had a lot of time and effort put in and in my own opinion, this is the best part about this season. I rated the Art a 9.
I didn't find the sound that interesting, it's got the type of opening/ending sound tracks you just listen to once, don't find it catchy and skip it and move on. I rate the sound tracks a 5.
Well, here we go. In my opinion; the character development is the biggest flop of Freezing Vibration; the first season had 3 main characters, Kazuya Aoi, Satellizer el Bridget and Linchen Rana, who had a great back-story and you find out a lot about them all within the first couple of episodes. But, then you come to Freezing Vibration, they have doubled the amount of mains from 3 to 6 and make it confusing; their isn't a big story behind these characters because you are not told much about them, they haven't presented them in the right way and just rushed them into action. Characters - 5.
Although their are bad things about Vibration, it isn't all bad. It is enjoyable to an extent and does keep you moderately interested, although at points I have felt bored and 'couldn't be bothered' watching. In my opinion, the newer mains annoy me and don't interest me, I would of rather watched the first season again but with more development to the story and what/when Kazuya and Bridget finally become the #1 team.
Overall taking all my ratings into account, I rated this a 7.
The story and art are the best things, like in any anime these are a key necessity for a good show, although the Characters are the biggest let down for me and I'm not too bothered about the sound.
Thank you for reading.

"Freezing Vibration" attempts to pick up where its predecessor left off, at least in some ways.
As It begins, you are quickly jumped into a relatively new plot, and you quickly find out that the show has little to none relevance to "Freezing"
The Important characters that remain from Freezing are: Satella, Rana, Elizabeth Mably, Chiffron, and and Kazuya.
But don't misunderstand, The Only people to be considered "Main Characters" should be Elizabeth, Satella, and a new character name "Amelia Evans"
Along with this, there is absolutely no character development improvement from "Freezing"
Story:1, there is more then one way at looking at this, you could consider the story a completely new theme, based on a completely different plot, yet keeping the same system from Freezing, for fighting style, etc.
or: It is a side story, with little to no development towards the official plot at all, that is trying to throw new characters at us as an attempt to increase the small fan base "Freezing" Originally had.
Art:4 In general, Freezing Vibration had a great art style, and though the pointless scenes where their clothes are ripped from Freezing was slightly aggravating. Freezing attempted to fix this by censoring every 1 of those times with light rays. which in the end was even more aggravating.
Sound:8 This was the one spot in the story that wasn't terrible, Freezing Vibration has Great epic battle music, and a great Opening song, which may have been the same thing.
Character:3 As my expectations for watching this show were, to see some progression on perhaps the Satella-Rana mini harem, or maybe just some character development in general. 95% of the small character development the show ended up having, was based on completely new characters, completely irrelevant to the first season.
Enjoyment:1 Initially, with shows like Freezing, even with everything else failing, you can sit back, and enjoy the show's Ecchiness through comedy. but in reality, picture this show as a Censored Hardcore Ecchi/harem with absolutely no comedy or Romance, at all! That attempts to WOW you with its irrelevant plot, and boring new characters.
Overall:2 Now, even though I view this show as dreadful, through the power of a good extra song at the end of the show, i decided to bump up the inevitable 1 i was prepared to give it, to a 2.
FEEDBACK: I would definitely appreciate feedback; it would help me to become a better writer. read more
These 2 series focus mainly on male lead character who is surrounded by bunch of girls but is unable to choose. And of course the protagonists in both the series have some kind of unique skill differentiating them from other crowd.
