Freezing 05 – She Is Rana Linchen [NSFW]


 

She Is Rana Linchen

「She is Rana Linchen」

 

RANA RANA RANA! So this episode introduces us to a new character named Rana. As expected, events in this episode play out differently from the manga. What went down is that they condensed 3 chapters of the manga into one episode so a lot of things were changed. Shame really, because the events in the manga were better than what was in this episode, but alas, this is only a one cour show.

*whistles*

Rana Linchen

Rana Linchen is a young woman from Tibet who has come to the city (West Genetics specifically) in search of a “soulmate” as she has the Tears of Kunrun embedded into her body that will guide her to find this “soulmate”. Now to clear things up, this “soulmate” she refers to is basically a Limiter and the “Tears of Kunrun” she refers to is basically the stigmas that are embedded into a Pandora’s body. So in essence, Rana is a Pandora. She has six stigmas embedded into her back, so she’s quite strong.

 

Satellizer's been acting weird.

Satellizer’s Getting Soft?

So, this whole thing about Satellizer not wanting to be touched by anyone other than Kazuya is touched on a bit further as she takes him to the rooftop and basically says that it’s fine if it’s him. Huh. Well, now Satellizer wants to make Kazuya his Limiter, but without the whole baptism thing. It’s fine with Kazuya, as long as he’s getting her boobs.

 

Sore Losers

What Happened In The Manga…

So, this is where they had to change things completely for the manga, because they had to condense 3 chapters into one episode, for the case of making headway with the series. In the manga, they actually had a day off, and Kazuya had already met Rana somewhere in the city after being saved from a bunch of thugs. Arthur and Kaho’s involvement comes afterwards when they see Kazuya and Rana enjoying lunch. Then the thugs come back again, and challenge them again. But a Kaho, a Pandora is with them and actually gets some very cool…”page-time”. But they end up forcing Rana and Kaho to strip after taking Arther hostage. Also, one of the thugs basically shoots Kaho in both of the legs leaving her to deal with the pain. Kazuya then proceeds to grow a pair, looking a tad older in the process.

What Happened In The Anime…

In the anime, there is no day off. Everyone is still in school, and Kazuya is on his way to the girl’s dorm to meet Satellizer along with Arthur and Kaho. But then DUN-DUN, AN ENCOUNTER WITH THREE SENIOR STUDENTS. These girls are basically the girls who brutally lost against Satellizer in the Carnival during the first episode. The only one I remember is the redhead, Audrey, who got her throat slit during the Carnival. Kazuya gets beat up, Kaho tries to get her moment to shine, but then gets humiliated, and Arthur gets his balls crushed. Kazuya tries to grow a pair but ultimately falls to the floor, leaving him vunerable to Audrey’s pole-axe. Rana comes in to save the day and takes everyone out with her awesome hand-to-hand combat skills.

 

Kazuya has anemia, huh.

Aftermath

So, Rana and Satellizer meet for the first time, though a bit of rivalry beings to spark between them regarding Kazuya. The anime pulling all the stops to make sure the anime makes a lot of progress through the canon material. It’s on Volume 3 of the manga now already. I do wish they would have kept the whole thug attack thing going on, or at the very least the scene where Rana and Kazuya are enjoying themselves in the city.
