Volume 1
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/a/ac/Freezing_Volume_1.jpg

Genre: Action Ecchi Mature Romance School Life Sci-fi Seinen Supernatural

Serialized: Booking (Haksan), Comic Valkyrie (Kill Time Communication)

Summary:
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 L. Bridgette, 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.


My Opinion:
Its a great Manhwa with a great story and has a lot of action with ecchi-elements. I like it.


Also there is a Anime from T.O Entertainment (http://www.toenta.co.jp/) and has a Season with 12 Episodes.

You definitely should. I picked it up not long ago and I _loved_ it. It feels like you're reading a light-hearted action-comedy that could turn into a cold bloody action-drama in a chapter, which it also does. I also love how they make the guys weaker on the girls. I.e. The girls are Pandoras and the guys are Freezers (can't remember the real honorific) and they fight side-by-side. The guys Freezes/Slows/Shackles their opponent while the Pandoras are the offensive type.

However, I do get a little irritated at the hopelessness of the boys in actual combat. They could, at least, be taught basic martial arts or something to be able to defend themselves. Because as it is now, they can only freeze, and this, if they are strong enough. Often they can only slow their opponents and what use is it to slow them enough to see their attacks, if you aren't trained to at least dodge 'em properly.

It's a great manwha, I recommend it to anyone! There's a lot of cute moments between the two main leads. There's fighting, especially from women, and lot of boobs shown. :3

I like it mainly because of the cute moments and the romance or "romance" that is going on between Kazuya and Satellizer.

Doesn't look like it. I see like, a chapter per month/two weeks out or something. :\

Hopefully you're right though. I can't wait to see that bastard get his comeuppance for what he did and is doing to Bridget! :mad

April 11, 2011, 08:35 PM
that has already been resolved, too bad you will have to wait 2 years till you see it in english. Since that is about the pacing FTH has scanlating the series.

It is surprising to me that a series that is fairly popular would only have one group dedicated to scanlating it.

I am now officially depressed. :( you think we can petition FTH to release quicker? I still hunger for Kazuya and Bridget interaction. :(

Freezing is a manga not a manhwa that is why it became anime but if it were manhwa I doubt it will be serialized and in Japanese language.

Freezing is one of many "mangas" that are written by Koreans as a Manhwa but got serialized in either both Korea & Japan, or only Japan, thus the editors changes it to left <--- right reading.

btw im done reading it, its kinda nice but 2 things disappoint me:
for those who have read the last chapter

-In the last chapter, that girl is really weak-minded to be blackmailed easily like that. Thats a big contradiction to the story. All the story showed that she's very strong and determined, whatever the situation. Then the last chapter, she suddenly become weak.
-The other thing is the boy, he don't do much in the battles, till now all he do is talk and stop bridget. But well i hope he will grow stronger later, i don't like series where the main characters are weak (i consider those 2 as the main characters of this manhwa )

April 13, 2011, 02:01 PM
Will if that the case there are many good Manhwa and better than Freezing so why dont they serialize them like ( The Breaker),( Priest ),( Yureka { for online Gamers }), (Sun-Ken_Rock ) and One Of best ( Witchcraft_Troops ). But unfortunately Japanese companies that serialize anime want money and that mean I hv sell more and more Ecchi Figures for the Otakus and the prove is what is this Shit that got serialized this month.
Only Kaiji S2 and Gintama S2 the Greatest things come this year not to mention Level E.

Nah man you dont understnad ^^ its not about weakmindedness. Shes been abused ever since she was small and this half-brother of hers has a tight grip on her. Its all for the future development of the main characters relation.

With For the Halibut, it was about a month, but I think there's another group scanlating it, if not a new one, so it may be sooner than a month. I dunno tbh.
[hr]
Whoo, Kazuya finally grew a pair and stood up to the jerkface! I hope Kazuya kicks the little brother's ass for what happened at the end of the chapter since Bridgette won't, even with Kazuya. D:

At least Kazuya will try to help Bridgette rather than abandon her. Hopefully. :x

Haha man id be so pissed off and kick his ass for sure! Not sure if i'd want to keep satellite around after though... Hopefully we will get to see him use his powers that we pretty much havent seen since chapter 11

It's not really her fault though. If you see her personality around others while fighting and compare it to Louis, you can see just how much Louis affected her. He must have done something to really emotionally scar her and scare her, and now he's blackmailing her. She probably doesn't want Kazuya to know what's really going on.

First time poster here :amuse

Just read Chapter 47 (http://www.mangareader.net/freezing/47), and not much really happened but looks like there will be a fight (finally) between Holly and Satalizer.

I must say though that I hope coming up soon Kazuya works on his ability and gets stronger cuz he has so much potential to be the strongest limiter if not more than that.

Anyway hope this arc ends soon cuz even though I know its character development, I don't really like Louis and his sadistic ways....... hope next arc will be great.:p

ca12nag3
June 17, 2011, 10:11 AM
Louis is a integral part of Satella's character development. We already know how their childhood was so unless she confronts him here and now Kazuya and her can never move on. So its important. Also we get to see how strong the bond between Satella and Kazuya realy is.

Its a good arc and hopefully we get to see some improvements in Kazuyas powers as well. Been waiting for that for a while now.

if you're reading GANTZ that is Brutal :) no Hardcore :)

i saw like 2 random chapters of gantz - what is so great about it? im not runing it down just asking

violence in freezing is one of those rare i actualy really like, im not against violence but i hold the opinion that almost everytime its not really needed - claymore for example depicts violence good - i like that in a second there could be several deaths and the violence is needed to show some aspects but it still has many violent scenes that are absolutely unnecessary (like in claymore anime Miria being tortured by Lido spider- awakened being) - i saw the point but it was still pure violence with out acomplishing anything

in a freezing i think its even better - first i saw the anime, i hated the fanservice (believe or not) and watched it purely for its plot, it was epic and the first episode goes right into one of most violent scenes in freezsing - but i liked it, why? it was so realistically done and all, it simply fits there - but its not the type where you see blood splashing like water - if i shall compare to explain in example - i hated violence in Hellsing OVA - for that reason i couldnt like it, i didnt see anything good come out of it - yes it was aesthetically well done but apart from shock value there was nothing for me

How can the brazilian readers have 87 Chapters. (http://www.batoto.net/read/_/92215/freezing_v13_ch87_by_brazil-manga-scanlator)

Because there are over 90 chapters released already. The English readers only have releases once groups like FTH or someone else purchase the volume, not individual chapters. By the way, the quality of the releases has taken a huge decline, the translations are done by poor english speaking translators it seems.

April 24, 2012, 01:57 PM
Ugh. I am kinda finding this all repetitive now. Random fights and background info on side characters. Not to mention this limiter guy is more badass than our protagonist.. Can we get some developement for kazuya yet? Every chapter seems to be the author forgetting more and more about his main couple. But about the recent chapter, this has been the first other limiter to freeze pandora mode, shame if he kicked the bucket from fighting another pandora.

REN KOUEN
April 26, 2012, 03:00 PM
nah andre was not more badass than stella

stella went beast mode on cassie lockheart (one of the top 5 pandora's in the world)
WHILE she was in some fucked up nova state

stella is absolutely a beast, and so is AOI

I am. Its still a decent story even if every arc is about the pandoras conducting a test/experiment that goes horribly wrong and leaves many dead. They actually kill themselves more than the nova do.

But now the story seems to be focusing on elements like transcending boundries and different levels of existence. Complex stuff really, it keeps me reading.

The Translation is quite slow, chapters 130 - 133 were released in april, chapter 134 was in may, RAW's are up to 149 now.

who is your favorite girl? it's so hard to get people to read this manga, mainly because ecchi on it.

First season of anime was killed with fanservice.

conn-man
October 09, 2013, 05:07 PM
Yeah just 134 for me but the site I read it at just posted it in the last couple weeks so i guess I'm behind.

I like our main girl, Satilizer senpai, but I thought Chiffon had some of the best 'proportions' of all the girls. Plus I liked her attitude a lot. And I still dont quite understand what made her powers so special, I have to reread those chapters sometime.

How do you feel about the plot and arc style? I'm happy we can finally get some character development out of the Novas now. But every arc up until this has felt very filler-ish with tiny plot developments that dont do much for the overall story.

Anyone still following this comic? Latest chapters are out on Batoto. I'm not sure how I feel about these new developments.

BASED Shinigami
January 10, 2014, 11:37 AM
Yeah, I got that impression too when I read the chapter. The decision to awaken them felt like a last minute resort to avoid a total catastrophe. However, I wonder why these four girls were deemed as a failure? They're supposedly 700 times stronger than average Pandora, but they're placed in cryosleep for like several decades. It's weird. Perhaps their power was too great to control at the time or they must have an unusually large amount of stigmata in their bodies which would warrant caution because they're more likely to turn into Nova if they lose control of their power. Chiffon looks better with long hair :^_^

Chapter 143 out (http://www.mangainn.com/manga/chapter/115975_freezing-chapter-143)

Chapter was alright. It's no surprise all the survivors are being quarantined at the present moment. However, they're bound to be released sometime soon. For a second, I thought that was Satellizer in Kazuya's bed, but it's actually Cassandra who's laying beside him. They both look quite similar if you compare their facial features and hair. Anyway, what does she mean by stating "go on drink"? Does she seriously expect him to pop out her titty and start suckling for milk? I can't wait for to see his reaction in the next chapter.

Wowzers
January 11, 2014, 12:26 AM

Chapter 144 out. (http://www.batoto.net/read/_/218686/freezing_v21_ch144_by_emeraude-manga/1)

Okay developments. Kazuya is finally learning the truth about the legendary lab 13 Pandora. Cassandra apparently raised him until he was two years old (probably breast fed him too), but I don't understand why his parents weren't around to take care of him. The flashbacks suggested his parents and older sister didn't necessarily get along with Cassandra and even went as far as calling her a monster. The Kazuya family is complicated bunch people indeed. The next chapter looks like it'll shed more light on the past as Dr. Aoi starts spilling the beans to Kazuya.

Anyone happy Elizabeth has decided to return?
