Description
Beings from a different dimension have started a war with mankind. To counter this threat, an academy called "Genetics" that trains female warriors called "Pandora," who can wield special weaponry and armor, was formed. Kazuya Aoi decided to enroll in this school because of a promise with his sister, an outstanding alumnus who died in battle. There he meets second year Satellizer el Bridget, nicknamed "The Untouchable Queen" due to her solitary demeanor but also top of her class whose battle simulation streak is undefeated, until he came... and slowly changed her.

Why does everything IM Dal Young write turn out so damn entertaining? The man is a fucking genius!
And he always seem to find some brilliant artist with awesome style.

it was nice at first... action, fansurvice, action, complication, more action and more fansurvice....... then it just got repetative...... sadly enough it got repetative by the 3rd fight... and while it is a story about protecting the earth.... the protectors are all selfish and too many of them are forgetful of their duty to even think about why they have these abilities (that they waist on hurting fellow comrads)...... as a military member i got to say that if even one of my wingmen acted like this for one day he/she would be in jail...... in this story i would be consurned with the future of the world if it trully was in the hands of these glory hungry and childish fighters............. if your looking for a story that isnt focussed on immature reasons for fighting..... keep looking

after chapter 24 or so the actual enemies come in

Bear with the idiotc beginning and you will be rewarded. Yes there is fighting between the seniors and junior which would seem unlikely at a military organization but what it does do is atleast give us some valuable background information on the characters in a more exciting way. Rather than them just walking around and us learning about their characters, the mangaka tries to make it more intriguing to to learn of their ideals by slowly revealing why they are fighting the girl, what are their reasons for doing so and so on. Mostly its just fighting but information about their past is revealed especially for the main heroine who has a pretty tragic past. So yesd beginning is slow but after chapter 24 or so the novas or the actual enemies enter the fray and the manga becomes pretty damn good as we see all these characters that we were sympathetic with just dying. That is good. The mangaka is not afraid to kill of characters. So after chapter 24 you will see them fighting their actual enemies so bear with the beginning which is not really that good.

This is much more superior than Orihime Vs, simply because the guy isn't useless and he has some powers and so is able to protect the girl he loves instead of just letting her do all the fighting. There is also much better romance going on in this manga.

Simply put, be patient because there is an actual plot after like chapter 24 or so, but those first 20 or so chapters are important in order for us to learn about all those characters and to set up some nice romance as well.

Well, the "Okay" character designs, Satellizer's tsundere-ness and intro reeled me into reading this manga. (Intro reminded me of Mamoru-kun ni Megami no Shukufuku wo! lol). Plus, I was interested I couldn't pass up a manga of Im Dal Young biggrin


The story was quite bland on the first couple of volumes I guess... but so were Hitman Reborn, Onani Master, and some other popular or highly rated mangas! They didn't start off with a bang but slowly laid out the foundations needed for the manga's plot development in the future chapters. I believe(or gamble? ;D) that the author of Freezing is trying to do the same.
Here are some of the + and - things notices in the manga:

- Some translation inconsistencies like Axel and Accel, Cassie and Cathy.

- The characters are often forgettable because they lack backgrounds and unique personalities.

- The details/explanations/elaborations of skills/historical events/rituals are sometimes given some chapters waaaay later.

+ Has Tsundere female lead, fanservices and school romance = Sugar, Spice and Everything nice! =D

+ There is a switch in atmosphere from "light & comedic" to "Dark & serious" a few times in the manga. This gives rest to all those catfights going on xD

+ The story gets deeper and shows more substance in the 4th volume. A definite sign that the author has come up with an epic plot ^_^


Overall, this was a "good" and worthwhile manga for me. I am looking forward to the development of the story and more of tsundere-ness of Satellizer. This manga has the potential to become popular if the author plays it right...

It started ok. I liked some of the art and character designs. I do think some of the girls are starting to look too much alike. I really liked Satellizer as a Kuudere character. She could be a bit frosty and haughty, but it is in part a mask to hide her more shy and delicate feelings which makes her more sympathetic.

Some readers complained about all the catfights in the beginning. This didn't bother me so much. First, Satellizer has a bad reputation. Her classmates and teachers see her as a violent delinquent. A reputation that she does little to fix. In part because she has bad social skills and doesn't interact well, but also her "I won't give up/I'll just do it on my own personality" doesn't mesh well in a military unit/team environment. The upperclassmen see her not following orders and being a lone wolf which is detrimental to military unit cohesion. In military academies a certain amount of respect is expected from underclassmen to their seniors as a way to enforce the chain of command. Respect for one's seniors or sempai's whether in the military or outside of it is also important in many cultures. Satellizer won't bow her head or show active respect to her seniors. So she is a problem, one which her seniors try to remedy by punishing her. This is something that also happens time to time in military organizations where fellow soldiers try to get the person causing problems to "shape up" for the good of the unit. In this case it gets nastier, because the senior's pride gets put on the line since Satellizer wont back down and beats everyone to a pulp. Part of the solution was Satellizer opening up and trusting a bit and the seniors backing down. All of this was ok with me.

What I don't care for is that most of the limiters including Kazuya seem to be wimps. Its like the limiters had their gonads cut off and given to the Pandoras. It would be ok if 1 or 2 were like this, but not all. What a bunch of emasculated men and the Limiters never seem to improve only the Pandoras. Why even bother having them if they do almost nothing? The brother arc is where things started to go south really bad. Her brother is sick, abusive and has a stalker personality. All of that just doesn't go away. He needs more than professional help, he needs to be locked away. Really what was her sister thinking setting this up? No what was the writer thinking? The arc ended way too unrealistically. Abusers don't just have an aha! moment and just stop abusing. Anyone who thinks this or excuses this with "oh, sibling and familial love will overcome abuse" has no clue about sexual abuse or domestic violence.

The latest arc is just told sloppily. Really, if the Chevalier
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
are so powerful, arrogant and cruel why do they need to torture Elizabeth or destroy her father's company? They have no problem killing people as experimental test subjects, then it shouldn't be a big deal having Elizabeth and her father have an "accident".
Its just a clunky set up for what's to follow, and its a lazy way of trying to instill outrage in the characters and viewers. Satellizer and her limiter who started as the main characters are hardly in this arc at all. It's ok if they want to develop some of the other characters, its just not being done well and it should at least include one of the main characters a bit more.

So it started off with some potential. Im Dal-Young's stuff always has a few good ideas, but the stories always end up getting screwy, dumb down or just run out of steam. Its getting frustrating to read any of his stuff. The series started as an 8 or 9 for me, but has dropped because of these two last arcs to about a 7 and that's being kind. I wonder if it can be salvaged. If it continues this down this way or miraculously gets better I'll update my score.

BTW: The anime is pretty disappointing as well. The girls all look nice, some of the action is decent, its got some cool music, but its turned mostly into a fan-service show. Some fan-service is ok, but if it gets in the way of the action and the story then that's not ok imho. Some will undoubtedly love it for all the fan service, and some won't. You have been warned.
<-----------Update---------->
Its been dragging a lot and I would like to see this get some direction instead of introducing more and more characters with bigger and bigger boobs. I'll be putting this on hold for a couple of months and if I don't see some improvement then I'll be permanently dropping this. Oh, and yea dropping my overall score to a 5 now as we haven't gotten any substantial explanation on what makes Kazuya "special" and how this will figure into the story and in all the volumes I've read we haven't gotten much more info on the Nova nor has there been much movement in the romance. The relationship is still in the same awkward phase that it was in the first chapters! I guess the author is aiming for Bleach or Dragonball length levels here. Well I'm not going to stick around for another 5 years to see this finally get some place.

Alright, I've been reading every review and everyone single one says they dislike this manga. I guess this is a prime example of the haters being much more vocal than the lovers.

I know, I read the description, and it says that the Pandora's (women) and Limiters (men) are supposed to fight against this xenophobic race the humans have dubbed "the Nova". Sounds awesome right? Well, it is, in a way. You don't really see a whole lot of humans vs Nova action. Just a little bit here and there.

But I compare this to that of Orson Scott Card's Ender Quartet. In the Ender series, humans are under threat of beings called "buggers" and humanity is gearing up for a third war with them. But its not about the buggers all that much. In fact, its much more about the "soldiers" (cream of the crop children) that are training to defeat them. It deals about how they (just Ender, but don't want to ruin it for the few that haven't read this great book yet bigrazz ) overcome their various obstacles and how they interact with the other children. As with the Ender Quartet, Freezing is all about character development and about the people who actually have to fight for humanity.

I've seen people complain about school life. So what? Life doesn't stop. Humans adapt.

Then there's the review up top. It says "why doesn't the all powerful guy just make Elizabeth and company "disappear"?
The reason why is because you wouldn't become pissed at him (emotinally attached) if it just showed him sitting in his office wondering if they're gone yet.

The "Satllelizer and Louis" arc left a bit of a sour taste in my mouth because it DID end unrealistically. But at least it accomplished its goal right?

Character development.

It's the basis of this story.


But there are some things I dislike.
So many big boobs. It almost seems like fanservice. Nearly comparable to that of Kampfer, but even they changed up boob sizes every now and then.

To me, it was just a tiny bit slow to start off, but otherwise great.

I was glued to my seat during the "Expendable Pandora's" arc. In fact I can't wait to see what's gonna happen.

8.5/10

(I'm too tired. I don't think I've said half the things I wanted to)

Has its flaws   
Rating: N/A

One of the things I keep reading in these reviews is that this manga had a lot of potential. I definitely think so myself. The mangaka gives the background of what would ordinarily be the focus of the manga, but then he neglects it to do fanservice and show a bunch of girls acting like they're in high school. Meanwhile, we only read that the Nova have appeared numerous times and generally wreaked havoc and killed many people, but this is never portrayed strongly enough. I don't get the feeling of a society threatened by extinction. I get a sense of "look at us, we're in high-school being total bitches to each other. *Novas invade* Oh yeah, that's what we're here for! *invasion defeated after much carnage* Yay! Back to more high school!" But the Novas seems to be the last of this mangaka's concerns; his focus is on the interpersonal relationships of the Pandoras and their limiters, especially on Stella's tortured psyche and tragic background, into which he has delved no shallow amount as of chapter 46. And although this is developed while other aspects of the setting, such as the Nova menace, are left mostly unexplored (are they merely incomprehensible higher beings? If so, why do they want to destroy Earth's population? To take Earth and its resources? What the hell is going on here?), the mangaka has drawn at least me into his main characters, made me hate them, sympathize with them, cheer for them, hope for them, cry for them. This arc with her half-brother is truly infuriating (how can Stella's older sister be that ridiculously stupid? Why can't Kazuya sense that something is seriously wrong?). The latest chapters have been released late, and after reading them I can't go to sleep. This is good, insofar as I'm engaged in the story, and counts positively toward the rating.

However, aside from this psychologically rich (if sometimes psychologically implausible) storyline, the background feels a bit contrived to me. Why is Genetics run like a boarding school with a dumbfounding lack of oversight when the attendees possess such potent abilities and powers? The warriors behave like they're high-school girls because they're treated that way. Sure, it creates drama, but it's completely unbelievable.

All things considered, the background is a bit like Claymore. There's an inhuman menace that is fought using specially trained girls whose powers derive from elements from that same menace. Claymore's plot centers mainly on the conflict between the Claymores and the evil forces, but the Claymores don't feel human; as far as character development goes, many of them feel like shells of humans (although several of the actual main characters are not one-sided). Freezing is the opposite, but a lot of the supporting characters still feel one-dimensional. But not to say that Freezing should essentially be Claymore. Everything, the character development and backstories, the Nova, and the love story aspects should all be there in a well-ballanced, harmonious symphony.

For all of its flaws, I'm still optimistic that the story can only get deeper as it progresses. Chapter 46 is still be too early a point to pass judgment completely, and I'm looking forward to finding out how well this series will mature.

love the artwork, and the female characters,

hate the story, and the male characters...

what i hate about this manga?

1. stupidly weak protagonist. even issei from Highschool DxD is waaaaay better than him.
kazuya is pretty much useless.... all he can do is talk. yes he is a talented limiter, but still...he is a typical bullied kid at school.
not only him, almost all male characters in this manga are a bunch of wimps. like all their balls have been cut off.

2. the incest brother arc was totally unnecessary...and it's ruined the image of the main heroine. also it can be disturbing for some people.
i began losing even more interest since this arc... well, what the hell? is this a NTR hentai or something??

Some angry girls fight each other in multiple combinations in order to save the world. They're gifted with enormous and aggressive breasts that turns fight an almost impossible task. A lot of drama and some effeminate guys complete a good story for every aficionado of ecchi battle based manga.
