Synopsis

Covered in ice and snow, Elior Forest is the home to dangerous magical beasts and 50 elves frozen in ice. One day, the great spirit Puck helps a young girl break out of her ice prison. Her name is Emilia, a half-elf born with silver hair, long ears, and amethyst eyes—features that resemble the evil Witch who destroyed half the world long ago.

Shunned by society because of her appearance, Emilia dwells in the forest with Puck as her sole companion and family. Burdened with a sin of destruction she does not remember committing, she spends her days trying to find a way to help her frozen kin. But when the great spirit Melakuera, the Arbitrator of the world, finds Emilia, her right to stay alive is brought into question. Will the bonds of ice she formed with Puck prove to be the warm thread that defies fate?

A well-executed backstory. This does not contain the fan service we are used to for an OVA/Movie, it instead shines a radically different light on Emilia as a character.

Story: 8/10
A wonderfully written story that perfectly captures the journey Emilia takes to reach the belonging (although temporary) that she yearned for. It explains the mannerisms of Emilia that were shown in S1 and alludes to S2. So if you want to get ready for S2, don't skip this one. The only flaw in the story is the pacing at emotional moments. I feel more care could have been applied but it was done appropriately.

Mixed Feelings
Going to be honest, this movie bored the life out of me. The pacing is SO slow. The characters are SO flat. The only bright spot was Puck, but we don't get enough of him. Despite that, everything surrounding him carried me through the movie. The villains sucked in a series with fantastic villains. Just really does not fit in with the quality of the rest of the series. Really did want to like this, since it was supposed to be Emilia's backstory. By the end of the movie, though, I just could not care less about her motivations and the whole climax. Never seen ...

If an anime, say, depicts the death of a character, if you don't know who that character is, and how they ended up where they did, chances are, you won't care.

The same applies to, say, two characters getting married, or a character finding out that a family member they thought was dead was actually alive. And so on. The emotional impact of a scene hinges on how much the viewer knows about the events that lead to said scene. If the viewer knows nothing... then, chances are, they will feel nothing.

This is the problem with Frozen Bonds. Buildup is essential for emotional impact. Frozen ...
