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.

At first, it started as ok (being distracted by oppai and panty). But as the story progresses, I notice that the guys are nothing more that useless characters. Even the hero too. I meaqn wtf! after 100 chapters the guys don't even make a progress at all? Except for the females they get to learn new stuff. Other than than i can't help myself but detect a hint of racism in all of this. Sorry but this one goes out of the window.

This manhwa isn't completely bad i just find it strange that the pandora's women who are supposed to be training to fight of some kind of alien menace are to busy being caught up in all sorts of petty love triangles instead of training to protect the world

i have read it until chapter 120, but it looks a bit awful because the pandoras who are the main topic from the start now getting useless against valkyrie. well, i think pandoras is quite good, so i feel dissapointed when gengo aoi plans about pandoras just as guinea pig and valkyrie as trump card.

(sorry my english is quite awful too -.-")

If you're familiar with the authors other work then you know what you're in for. An interesting premise with fan servicey action and a fair amount of gore. The action is the main focus and the plot does suffer from that on occasion. But really its no worse than your typical action heavy manga plot.

Also, its fine not to like it but could people at least sblock their spoilers? Several of the comments on the first page spoil it all the way up to the most recent volumes, which is shitty behaviour no matter how you feel about it.

The beginning is quite good but seem like the author went wrong way after a good start. All things happen in this manga IS: girls and girls (I use the word IS because that's all). Girls troubles, fights, bickers... Boys (or girls' assistants appeared just to fulfill white papers). These girls all are fierce, even cruel. A fight can happen (almost) anywhere, anytime they have opportunity to talk with each others. It's look like they always want to show that "I am the strongest" but not to help defend the earth against alien.

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.

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

Plenty of action, fanservice, and some controversial arcs

I'm an action junkie, so I enjoy manga where small monsters fight big monsters, then a bigger monster appears and the small monster beats him, and then an even bigger monster appears, and the small monster beats him, or loses. This is what makes shonen manga so popular - the concept that there's always someone stronger than the protagonist, and yet the protagonist will fight and win (or at least try his best to), sometimes through rock-hard determination and a little sneaky attacks, but usually through newly discovered powers. Well this isn't a shonen manga (i.e. designed for 14 year olds), but then for me, shonen plot devices are always welcome. All of these are meant to make the reader want to read more, since he's always left wondering what the protagonist will do to defeat his next seemingly invincible opponent. DBz anyone?

Freezing is packed with action, and has plenty of these shonen plot devices to make sure there's always something new to make the reader excited, which is enough to keep most action junkies satisfied. I like how the action scenes flow and are easy to follow, as well as how speed (using after-images) and strength (using minimal force to block a seemingly fatal blow) are depicted. There's a large variety of weapons, and fighter types so that some weapons/fighters are weak against specific types. This is important in any story where battles are fought - you cannot have someone that's all powerful since it would be boring; it is the weaknesses that make fighters interesting because you're left wondering how a fighter will conquer his own weakness to win the fight.

Now, men fighting men would just be too boring, so here we have hot, high school girls, in short skirts and knee socks (Yoko Ritona is just soooo hot), some with big breasts to appeal to readers who like that sort of thing, all with bigass weapons fighting giant monsters (and other hot girls), and it is rather common for clothing to be torn off during fights. Now, the scenes don't put emphasis on the clothing being ripped off, but it is just a means to show how rough the fight is. If your body is hard as steel, and someone throws a grenade at you, why should your clothing survive the explosion? There's the occasional nipple here and there, so if that offends you, don't read this. Some people are desensitized (or mature?) enough not to fixate on nipples during a fight.

And then there are the controversies, oh the controversies. There's an arc with a sadistic brother who's obsessed with his sister, and pain ensues, yet in the end there's no retribution since fraternal love conquers all. This has many people up the wall since they all wanted retribution dealt out. They believe a sadist should die, and there can be no reconciliation. Well, I'll leave you to decide what punishment a sadist, who has realized the error of his ways, deserves.

In another arc a character was tortured, and some readers believe that this torture wasn't necessary, but (in the naive antagonist's opinion) it's a great way to punish someone and leave a lasting reminder for others to obey out of fear, however (as a plot device) it's an excellent way to incite rebellion, and to invoke feelings of disgust and hatred toward the antagonist. How would you have done it differently?

Overall, if you enjoy shonen action manga, enjoy seeing anime chicks in short skirts and knee socks, and don't mind a little "high-school" romance, and some intense drama, then you should definitely give this manga a go.

Kim Dal Young's Freezing is pretty much a blatant ripoff of Sekirei and Gun parade March, much like Unblanace x Unbalance is a ripoff of please teacher. However he goes as far to insert incest and shoujo level story telling with bland moronic characters, who are pretty much unlikeable. Only fanboy's with sexually backwards values like Young's would say the opposite .The only reason Elizabeth was tortured by the chevalier is because of the authors fetishes and Chiffon was killed off because of his inability to handle a character that powerful in a low tier universe.(ie. vs can be solo'ed by character's that are bullet timer and has a ranged small building damaging attack can solo, even the Nova) Teresa in Claymore lasted much longer. The useless pieces of crap humans beings Holly and Louis are still alive like some crappy Shonen series after the eleventh nova clash. Anybody who isn't a talentless hack would have killed them off already.

Character development is non existent and inconsistent, Kazuya and Satellizer though having potential are pathetic by the end of the siblings arc and Lana becomes a third wheel by the time the E-Pandora arc rolls around. All three become background characters and are just useless. Also the fusion reactor is just another long line of ass pulls due to Young's poor writing skills for science fiction. Seriously twenty years of the suns power? Gotta call bullshit on that. Even in the current arc the tiro is still out of focus, with the way it shifts characters, gives sexual abusers and torturers sympathetic back stories like novels for teenage girls. I won't be surprised if it's canceled soon, if Comic Valkyrie has any standards for its manga.

In conclusion just a waste of time and only exists to be mocked. Young's writing is poor, formulamatic and relies to much on his personal fetish to be a good Senein Manga. Pretty much pure garbage unless you think sexually backwards Shoujo is actually readable. It just goes to show if you spam enough manga series you eventually can get one made into an anime. In short it's like a yoai series but make the characters straight, give the females large breasts and add aliens.

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.


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