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.

I first started watching this gem when I finished another anime and was confused as all hell at the start. But what I DIDN'T notice is the teeny-weeny text at the start of each episode (I discovered this at episode two) so I went back and everything made sense. *AHEM*

Freezing MAY not be for everyone but for me personally it was my first "ecchi" anime and I nearly fainted at the first scene showing breasts as I was watching it at work and didn't know what ecchi was at the time. That aside the story is essentially about finding read more

*Fan-service aside, this anime did a great job at adapting the manga material.*

It breaks my heart to see such horrible overall ratings and reviews on this anime that, for all intents and purposes, was fairly accurate and stayed faithful to the manga if one were to ignore the anime original contents (eg. mostly fan service and one useless episode). While it is fair to say there are multiple flaws in the anime series that could have been improved on (or unnecessary contents that could have been done without), the anime as a whole has served itself quite nicely considering it is only a one-cour read more

Welcome, I hope you enjoy my review of "Freezing"

Story - 8

I must say, I was kind of skeptical going in to this anime. The first few episodes are kind of slow, but explains the story. So you have a mind-set when watching future episodes. You will also find out more about the characters later in the series.

Animation - 8

The art/animation was well put together I must say. This anime had allot of work put into it, and I was very astonished at how good the art was. Sorry if I am becoming repetitive but the art style was very good.

Sound - 9

I freely admit that I have a guilty pleasure when it comes to silly ecchi action anime just like Freezing. So initially at least I was quite intrigued with this series and for the first few episodes I was amused. However that amusement soon waned as it was buried under it's dozens of characters, inane nonsensical plot, and confusing terminology and technobabble.

The premise for Freezing seems like it might have had an enormous amount of potential. Mysterious entities called Nova are invading earth intent on wiping out mankind. All that stands in their way are special soldiers known as Pandora and read more

Anime: Neon Genesis Evangelion
Large, fearsome monsters regularly appear to destroy the world, only for a group of teenagers to fight back. Since NGE came first, most of Freezing’s story can be thought of as an imitation or tribute. Freezing’s Nova appear like NGE’s Angels, coming in numbered waves (Eighth Nova Clash vs. The 13th Angel). While NGE’s Angels take on different forms, the ones in Freezing generally look about the same as robotic figures, however, with each wave, they introduce new attacks. The Freezing field is similar to that of the AT field in NGE where it has to be penetrated or overridden in order to get in  read more

Both are panty-fighter shows, that is, with the heroines dueling each other until their clothes are shredded. Even when the heroines are clothed, the anime directors still insist on showing low-angle panty shots and exposed chests, along with the girls dressed in provocative clothing for their commercial breaks. Both series insist on giving the girls a nickname, a relative ranking (for Freezing), body measurements, weapon names, and special abilities, as if they were selectable characters for a video game.

The male protagonist joins a school full of fighting girls, lacking abilities of his own at first, but developing some based on his lineage (from  read more
