I think the finale to FREEZING was rather decent. Like Yumekui Merry, this was another finale that I watched on my huge widescreen TV. I’m glad Cathy wasn’t the final boss of the show, otherwise that would have been disappointing. Other than Satella settling an old fight, I don’t see why the fight with Cathy was so prominent.

The final episode of Freezing has been moved to April 7th. So in the meantime, enjoy a bit of fanservice. More after the break. Read the rest of this entry
Just so you know, none of this happens in the manga, which means it’s an anime-original episode. In the manga, we’re treated to a nice little date with Kazuya and Satella at an amusement park. BUT NO. The producers’ are all about the fan-service. Why else would people buy the DVD/BDs? So we’ve got the prom, and then we’ve got the Pandora Queen contest where people vote for the most attractive Pandora on campus.
I totally wanna do an “In A Nutshell” post for this because man, I didn’t realize how busy I’m getting until now. But I have to at least say something about Rana and Satella.
「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.
As a heads up, the screencaps will look a little weird because I downloaded a 720p version of the show, but it’s uncensored so it still retains it’s 4:3 aspect ratio. Silly me. In any case, as much I am displeased with the anime adapation of Freezing so far, I enjoyed this episode…slightly. Notice the missing [NSFW] from the title? Yeah, there’s not much I can say for this episode other than the fact that they skipped out a number of Chapters from the manga that focus on Ingrid’s past. I would have liked to see her past animated because I really enjoyed that section in the manga, but of course, Freezing is a one cour show and I’m pretty sure they didn’t wanna pull a Naruto on us.
I’ve been really busy with my college work and getting ready my Final Major Project for my Music Technology course in college that I’ve been falling behind on my posts. So, here’s just the episode in a nutshell.
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.
Yes, that [NSFW] is there for a reason. To my surprise, this show was broadcast uncensored, meaning that there is nudity. I personally hate censoring, but this still came to a bit of a surprise. In any case, after hearing that Freezing was getting an anime adaption, I decided to take a sneak peak at the manga to see it was about. I ended up reading til the end of the 4th volume. I enjoyed reading what I read of the manga, and I was ready for this show. Freezing is sexy, epic, and BRUTAL. Still, I was rather disappointed by the first episode, but only as a reader of the manga. As an episode, it wasn’t all that bad. Also for some reason, this was broadcast in 4:3 aspect ratio whilst the OP and ED retained in 16:9 aspect ratio with a letterboxed cropping. I gotta say, after watching so many things in 16:9, watching this 4:3 felt a little off. Notable voice talents in this are Mamiko Noto who’s playing Bridgette, Nobuhiko Okamoto who’s playing Arthur, and Eri Kitamura who’s playing Ganessa. Read the rest of this entry
