Decades into the future, humanity is under siege by an alien race known as the Novas. These inhuman beings leave devastation in their wake whenever they appear, with the efforts to stave them off becoming known as Nova Clashes. Young women known as "Pandoras" and young men known as "Limiters" are implanted with stigmata to give them superhuman powers and are trained in military academies, where they must learn to work together if humanity is to have a chance of surviving.

Freezing tells the story of Kazuya Aoi as he sets out for his first day at the West Genetics military academy, right when a battle royale is being undertaken by the Pandoras. It is here that he mistakes Satellizer el Bridget—a powerful Pandora known as the "Untouchable Queen"—as his deceased sister and embraces her. Though he costs her the match, she finds that his touch doesn't drive her away and decides to take him as her Limiter. The only question is whether or not their partnership can survive the machinations of their upperclassmen and the impending battle with the Novas…


Freezing adapts content from the first 6 volumes of the manga it is based on.

This was a big right turn away from my general faire, but I can't say that I'm disappointed but I took it.

The amount of fan service is not subtle, but I think it kind of comes along with this kind of creation - specifically because you expect nearly grown women in a super society with super abilities to be super developed. I've seen fan service done for a lot less reasons.

The amount of fighting is extensive and kind of gets old with the same wash, rinse, repeat situation in every episode. There is 0% development of almost anything outside of that. I was pleasantly ...

~Worth a watch if you like tig ole' biddies~

It's a pretty okay 2010's ecchi. The world is mildly interesting, and the pandoras are really cool, but the action scenes leave much to be desired.

The MC is absolutely insufferable... He has the emotional intelligence of a cabbage, and is absolutely clueless. Even moreso than other ecchi/harem protagonists.

The supporting cast is the highlight of the show. It however greatly lacks substance, and doesn't really come to any conclusion.

The other redeeming part of the show is the genral concept of the whole thing. Living bioweapons make for an interesting sci-fi concept, and making those bioweapons cute anime girls ...

"how to sexually bully the hottest girl in school: randomly chopping limbs off hot girls" the anime.

If your time is precious, the above line about sums up the show for you.

Technically, there is some sort of loose premise in the background that explains why boys and girls are supposed to pair up as Pandoras and Limiters. However, the plot is very, very straight forward of just fighting monsters that chop up girls AND this plot only really exists in the background and is by no means anything intricate. Most of the show is some really unamusing (and at times cringe) bullying of one shy girl ...
