Freezing 02 – Pandora Mode [NSFW]


Ever notice how that large sum of text is actually full-blown synopsis for the episode?

「Pandora Mode」

SATERAIZAA ERU BURIJETTOO!!!! Ahem. I find myself comparing this show to the manga a lot, so I was rather disappointed by a few changes made for the anime. Other than that, this episode followed the manga from the last half of Chapter 1 to Chapter 2. In any case, I fear for where this series will take us and whether or not Freezing will be full of high-school drama and that’s it. Freezing’s only getting 12 episodes, and I know for sure it’s gonna hit into Volume 2 of the manga since that’s where Lana is introduced. However, the main bad guys here are the Novas, and the Nova arc is like…Volume 5 or something. So either the anime goes through events fast or we get an anime-original ending and will probably end with one Nova fight at the end of the series. A post over at Just As Planned will tell you where the anime will most likely go according the manga, and the differences between the two.

 

Um, I can't see anything.

OH AND DID YOU SEE THE CENSORING THAT WAS DONE ON THE 16:9 VERSION OF FREEZING? YOU CAN’T SEE ANYTHING. Like…I personally don’t like censoring, but I don’t really mind it too much either. However, when anime is censored like that, how the hell can you watch it? With black shadows covering nearly the whole of the screen, it’s quite off-putting. Hyakkaryouran: Samurai Girls = censoring well done.

 

Oh well.

So the episode starts off outside on campus with Fairchild warning Kazuya not get involved with Bridgette. Whilst Fairchild is badmouthing her, Bridgette is walking by. In the manga, I recall Fairchild and Aoi are talking inside a building and Bridgette is somewhere nearby knocking a wall down or something. In any case, Kazuya grabs her wrist and tries to apologize to her. It’s at this point we see something new, a very brief flashback at Bridgette’s past with her crying for some reason.

 

You need glasses now? I thought you were a cold-blooded brute without them?

I mean, come on. He's just trying to apologize.

In any case, Ganessa comes out of nowhere and starts taunting Bridgette. Ganessa claims her victory wasn’t all that satisfying since Kazuya got in the way and attacks Bridgette, but gets totally owned right after anyway.

 

HAHA.

Ganessa is still not done yet and goes into Pandora Mode, which is only intended for actual combat, therefore breaking the rules. However, Ganessa doesn’t give a shit and after Bridgette stupidly forgets to take her weapon, Ganessa gets a hold of her. And after smacking a weak Kazuya to the floor, Bridgette activates her own Pandora Mode.

 

DID I MENTION THAT PANDORA MODE LOOKS LIKE THIS IN THE ANIME?

THIS IS WHAT PANDORA MODE LOOKS LIKE IN THE MANGA.

Seriously, I was totally hoping for those armoured suits that’d make everything look all the more cool. But NOOOO. All they get is a blue aura. Maybe they get in the way of fan-service? Heck no. The armoured suits break off anyway.

 

Maybe if they had kept the suits...

Then maybe I wouldn't have had to see this sorry sight.

So anyway, after all that nonsense it’s time for Kazuya to meet a new friend. His name is Arthur and he’s got something to say about who his Pandora partner is.

 

Well, that's just convenient.

So anyway this sleazy chick called Miyabi has a number of Limiters, or should I say “boytoys” and plans to make Kazuya one of hers. NEXT episode should be an interesting one, though I find it a bit strange that the next episode is called “Accel Turn”. This skill isn’t even used in that fight in the manga. Oh well.

 

CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS.
