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.

Getting worse.

Freezing started somewhat decent. I used to like the female lead Satellizer because she was the type of character to beat anyone who will get in her way. Just like her title, the 'Untouchable Queen'.

The first arc was rushed and despite that there is a threat called Nova, the author dedicated 5 volumes to 'cat-fights'. Almost every Pandora was against Satellizer and they were trying to bully her cause of her bad reputation. Not to mention that Kazuya Aoi was doing NOTHING, even if he showed an interest in Satellizer. And the school-- What kind of system is this? Letting one of the students getting bullied so much and even if the supervisors witness it, they do not punish the bullies? Then for only 1 volume, the author is making the Nova to appear while wasting the others to meaningless fights.

The second arc,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
went more 'private' by introducing us Satellizer's twisted brother who had a complex with her. In this arc, Satellizer becomes very weak and she becomes the toy of her brother without resistance. Where the old good badass Satellizer went? The second arc totally ruined her image and Kazuya tried to save her... a little. Saying random melodramatic words like it's some sort of a shoujo manga.


And the third arc,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
has taken more of a Claymore/Neon Genesis Evangelion direction with a new project of Pandora and various conspiracies. Kazuya and Satellizer barely appear and whenever they appear Satellizer is an all-happy girl who does not mind to be touched by other girls. Now the author has introduced more and more characters and he focus on a new girl called Amelia who is somewhat like Miria but without her excellent leadership skills. Somewhat better compared to the second arc but still very flawless.


In the end it feels like the Nova isn't that much of a threat but rather the other Pandora and the headquarters.

The characters are poorly developed besides Satellizer. Most of the Pandora are just there for a fight and later they disappear. And don't make me start about Kazuya, he is just pathetic.
Some of the characters look alike too. There are like 3 girls who look like Satellizer, other 3 who look like Ganessa, etc. And it's funny how girls of this kind are able to protect the mankind. The author is just selling his heroines for fanservice, unlike the author of Claymore.

its a decent story but the character designs suck, sometimes im not sure who is who since a lot of the characters look exactly the same and they appear in the same page so its hard to follow and you keep having to do double takes and then just guess who the character is.

It's got a pretty bad story, not to mention the actual storytelling. But I like it somewhat nonetheless, and will continue reading it. Artwork is good, but most of the characters look very similar so it's hard to know who's who. Aside from them being hard to tell apart, it's just annoying that the author can't think of a different character design for different people. The novas look like crap as well.

I do like the main characters a bit however... The artwork and the decent fight scenes are only good for a 6 in the end though. I will keep reading it, because it's entertaining somehow anyway, and I want to find out what happens to them. But I wouldn't really recommend it to anyone. Unless of course you're into fanservice and hardcore girl-on-girl fights. bigrazz

Has its flaws

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.

This manga (manhwa?) is kinda depressing. It just oozes potential, really - you have a nice setup, a great world, a possible plot with Space Aliens and Pretty Girls Who Fight Them, so much potential to be something great and something more. Even the dialogue flows well and the art is excellent.

And what does it do? It limits itself to highschool drama for 25 chapters. The plot does start flowing after that, but having to plow through all the fanservice tends to the tedious side of things.

Panos: Seriously? I thought Louis said that he'd never slept with his woman. How can that be her?

I don't care what anyone else says about young's works. I remember how happy I was when the new chapter of UxU came out. After that went on hiatus, I discovered he had numerous other manhwas, and read them all. Gotta say I enjoyed them all so far (except Zero, whose ending left me going what is this i don't even) I wish i could read moonrunes, because although only up to chapter 41 has been scanlated, raws for chapters 7,8,9 are available...although i can surmise whats happening from the pictures, it nervewracking. Oh, and I discovered the Freezing anime two days ago, watched it, and found it to be much like the Elfen Lied anime, by which I mean that it only covers a small part of the beginning of the manga. I liked it, found the OP and ED songs to be ballin, tits, ass, ripped clothes, u name it, it has it. I just wish Young would work on one manhwa at a time in order to avoid such long hiatuses!!!!!!

I dislike this manga. The characters either act like its japan or its aristocratic europe. Shit makes no sense. It's also a lot heavier on girl on girl fighting than I was led to believe. The women don't seem to wear combat clothes and they don't look physically like you'd expect soldiers to, and that is why I don't like it(along with a bad plot with bad characters).

Here's why you (random passerby) might like it: You may like the designs of the women. You might like to see "sexy" women fighting, you may like to see "sexy" women fighting brutally. That alone may spark an interest in this manga, so check it out if that appeals to you.
