Freezing (2011)


its scene was set in a futuristic world, where alien invaded the earth. Pandora were girls genetically modified, specially trained to fend off these aliens. their male partners are called Limiters, who has a special ability to limit the opponent's mobility, called Freezing. the story followed the adventure of a newly enrolled boy named Kazuya n his acquaintance with an unusual powerful girl named Satellizer. Satellizer was the most powerful Pandora in her school, yet the only one refused to accept a male partner to be her Limiter. despite her rejection, Kazuya insisted on being her Limiter, which she eventually gave in to.

slightly similar to Sekirei (2008), the anime has lots of action involving girls. but instead of only getting their clothes torn up in battle, these girls had to get their limbs chopped off, throat slitted, n beaten the crap out of. the story circled around these girls repeatedly fighting against each other, instead of solely aliens. it didn't make sense why the girls had to always provoke each other n seemed to never get along. from the look of it, there will be a second season to heat things up.

  3. Yikes...this one sounds gory.

    But, also very intriguing!

    I always enjoy your reviews, Levian. You have a such talent for zeroing in on a movie, book or anime; giving us a clear picture.

    You GO, girl!

    Have a great day!

  4. Looks like a great story. I like the sci-fi premise!

    it sure is! blood n organs, you won't get any less than that!

    i replied you in another post, thanks!

    thanks! i'm glad i was able to give images of what it was about, which sometimes was quite a drag when even i don't get what it was about, hah!

    it was more like a no-brainer, but the technology was truly impressive!
