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.


Freezing has been published in English by Seven Seas Entertainment in 2-in-1 omnibus edition since June 23, 2015.

Judging by the cover art for each volume, one might assume that Freezing is a series comprised of martial arts, romance, and a touch of ecchi. Even the first few chapters might mislead you into thinking that this manga is apart of the all too common genre starring a plucky hero who somehow manages to be surrounded by nothing but beautiful girls willing to fight to the ends of the world, all in the name of love. A genre where no matter how bad or one-sided a fight seems, the heroes always come out unscathed. However, Freezing is far from being a fighter-harem and at read more

I figured that I would give my $0.02 on Freezing after catching up to the latest chapter, especially since the plot has thickened in the last 10-20 chapters. The initial setting that the reader is introduced to is our male lead Kazuya Aoi, who enrolls at West Genetics (think of it as a fancy synonym for high school) where he meets our female lead,Satellizer el Bridget. Anyway, the story originates from other worldly beings called 'Novas' that appear on Earth every 3 or so years and go on a rampage of destruction. Female warriors termed 'Pandoras' are the weapons to defend mankind.

Freezing is deeply rooted in cliche, and it's mix of genres is not a very enjoyable one.

In a nutshell, it's about a guy and a girl who are in love almost at first sight, then it relies on "will they or won't they" soap opera insanity. Anything and everything gets between them getting together, and there's no logic to it.

Here author, I'll do it for you. Take one of those scenes where there's no fight going on and they're just hanging around. Have them go into a room together and just hang out uninterrupted for a minute. Maybe they'll even cuddle, who knows!

As for the read more

Story 8: It is basically like Claymore in a semi-futuristic setting. It is Claymore in the sense that the ones that are fighting are mainly girls. They are being attacked by monsters from another dimension called Novas which in Claymore they are called Yomas (not that they are from another dimension but you get the gist). In order to fight them, Pandoras were created. Pandoras are like the Claymores in Freezing. They can not also go past their limit just like in Claymore. Where they Novalize but in Claymore it is called Awakening. And instead of putting the flesh of a yoma inside of you, read more

Manga: Sekirei
Both titles have females that form contracts with males in order to fight.

Manga: Claymore
Both Claymore and Freezing are in a world were female warriors accept flesh in their bodies to obtain powers strong enough to save mankind from "demons". Both female main characters are these warriors and, at first, cold and cruel towards everyone. The male main characters both believe that these girls are really kind and chose to help them. And the cruel warrior girls seem to loosen up and become more kind towards this guy.

Manga: The Legend of Maian
From the same Author. Both feature powerful busty blonds as their lead characters who have outwardly prickly personalities and partner in battle with a younger more inexperienced man.

Manga: Re:Birth - The Lunatic Taker
Same author, very similar art style. Both have a soft guy and 2 girls who like the guy. Both have special powers: Freezing has Pandoras and Limiters, Re:birth has Takers with a level up system. Both have a guy who doesn't want his partner killing other human beings.

Manga: World Embryo
They fight the aliens using weapons that have double-edges ..in Freezing they implants on themselves stigmata and on World Embryo they use jinki cores.

Manga: Chu Feng
