Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Based on a Japanese-Korean manga, Freezing (2011) blends elements of the magical girl and harem comedy genres into a violent, fan service sci-fi series. In the not-too-distant future, Earth has been attacked by aliens called Nova. These anthropomorphic monsters can only be defeated by Pandoras, teenage girls who use the power of their "stigmata" to generate special fighting abilities. They're assisted by Limiters, boys who block the Nova's defenses, enabling the Pandoras to destroy the aliens. The unprepossessing Kazuya Aoi arrives at West Genetics Academy and immediately encounters Bridgette L. Satellizer, a.k.a. "the Untouchable Queen," the top second-year Pandora-in-training. Needless to say, Kazuya overcomes Satellizer's icy demeanor and bonds with her. The story is minimal, even by the undemanding standards of fan service series. The Nova appear only in flashbacks until episode 9, and the characters don't actually fight them until episode 11. Satellizer and other Pandora students spend most of their time fighting each other in duels that inevitably begin with the combatants' tops getting ripped off and end with blood flying. Like most harem comedy heroes, Kazuya remains well intentioned and wimpy, but the other characters are nasty and vindictive. The nugatory storyline borrows heavily, often shamelessly, from Sekirei and Evangelion. Mean-spirited and misogynistic, Freezing will appeal to hormonal teenage boys who value nudity and violence over story, characterization, and taste. The six mini-OVAs feature the characters stripping and fondling each others' breasts. (Rated TV MA; suitable for ages over 17: nudity, graphic violence, violence against women, potentially offensive religious imagery, alcohol use, risqué humor, suggested child molestation) --Charles Solomon

Product Description

The masters of action-oriented fan service who brought you Ikki Tousen are back with a brutally busty bloodletting that Anime New Networks calls "lewd and sadistic!" Eager to follow in the footsteps of his fallen sister, Kazuya enrolls at West Genetics Academy, a training facility for buxom heroes known as Pandoras. These courageous schoolgirls are genetically-enhanced with enough sex appeal to cripple a man - and the superhuman strength to slaughter aliens by the dozen. Kazuya's role is that of Limiter, a Pandora's battle partner, and he quickly sets his sights on the most feared beauty in school, Satellizer el Brigette. This full-figured annihilator of aliens is as desirable as she is deadly, but rubbing her the wrong way could lead to gross bodily harm. Can Kazuya forge a bond with his new partner and rise to the top of the ranks at West Genetics? Or will he fall victim to the mysterious bloodlust lurking within Satellizer?

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for kids. May 24, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
The show 'Freezing' is your typical science fiction anime with a splash of harem thrown in. The story is basically this: humanity is at war with extra-dimensional beings called NOVA. The world has no way of fighting them except with teenage girls (naturally). It focuses on Aoi Kazuya who transfers to a school called West Genetics Academy. Genetics Academy is basically a school for genetically enhanced girls called Pandoras & male students with an ability dubbed "Freezing" which can limit/restrict movement in the area they cast it on. Pandoras & their male partners, who are called "Limiters", are the only known way to combat the NOVA.

The story starts out with Aoi being shown around his new school during an annual event that consists of each & every Pandora (in their year) going at war with each other (almost killing each other) throughout the entire school. The main heroine, Satellizer (who is known as the Untouchable Queen & ranked 1 of her entire class), & another main girl crash lands in front of Aoi. That is when the main story kicks in.

There's a lot of blood, limbs being cut off, fights & nudity. So, it's not for kids. It has a good story. The opening & ending are good. The insert music is freaking great. There's not really much I can say negative about this anime. There's a decent amount of sexual references. There's pantie shots but they aren't as in your face like in Queen's Blade or Sekirei (Sekirei still being good). All in all...I would suggest watching online before the box set comes out in order to make sure you want to buy it. You can watch it on YouTube censored by FUNimation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Fan Service September 6, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is a review of the blu-ray edition. First off, it is the uncensored version, so if you don't like bare breasts, look elsewhere. It is somewhat on the same level as the first season of Queen's Blade. I am a firm believer that even ecchi anime need a story line that holds together (as opposed to something like, say Master of Martial Hearts, which doesn't). The basic story line is that aliens are attacking, the only ones who can defend earth are girls with attack powers. Each girl has a guy with protection power(the Freezing in the title), which makes it different from other harems, where one guy attracts all the girls.

The heroine has awesome attack power, but due to a horrible upbringing (revealed later in the series), can't stand to be touched. The hero, of course is the only one that can touch her, much to her consternation. The girls in the academy spend most of the time fighting each other, but all pull together in the end when the aliens attack again. Lots of blood, but the girls heal fast due to their special powers. Nothing terribly unique about all this, but it all hangs together and moves forward.

The artwork on the blu-ray is great, as are the colors. There are 6 OVAs, which are all pure fan service. The package was in good shape, but I did have to clean off one of this disks with an alcohol swab due to a smudge. Everything was great on my 52 inch TV.

Bottom Line: A very enjoyable anime, reminiscent of Evangelion. They left the door open for a follow-on, since at the end of the credits we see Aoi's father tell Sister Margaret that it isn't ending, it's just beginning.

4.0 out of 5 stars They Carry The Hopes And Dreams Of their Loved Ones October 29, 2012
By KevinB
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
In the mid 2000's the Earth has been invaded by aliens called the Nova. Kazuya Aoi is the little brother of a war hero. His sister died fighting for the hopes and dreams of every person on Earth. Kazuya enters a school that trains young women and men to fight the Nova. He meets a girl named Satellizer el Bridgette. She has the same stigmata mark on her back as Kazuya's late sister. Underneath her cool exterior lies a gentle and shy side that she will only show to Kazuya. The 2 of them become partners and continue to fight to save the future.

This anime has a very generic story line. A boy meets a girl and they fight to save the world. The Nova are similar the to the Dolems in RahXephon, so there pretty cool looking. This series reminds me a lot of the Sekirei anime. Personally I liked Sekirei better. This anime also has a lot of fighting and nudity. So it's not for younger viewers. It is a very serious story. There is very little comedy if any at all. The animation, soundtrack and voice acting are all very well done. Overall this series is a good watch. It's got great production quality and a fairly solid story with some great characters. My only complaint is that it's only 12 episodes. I think many shows could be better if they took more time to develop the characters.
I enjoyed Freezing very much, and I hope you do to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Animation September 25, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The story might leave a bit to be desired. More time is spent on fan service than in developing a story that has a lot of potential. The quality of the animation is beautiful. There is a story here and it is interesting it just could have been so much more. Still the fan service is nice if that trips your trigger.
