[Thirsty Thursday] Top 5 Freezing Ecchi Scenes

Introduction

The Earth is at war with mysterious alien giants from another dimension called the Nova. Where can the people of Earth turn to fight the monstrous menace? Genetically modified teenaged girls. Where else would they look, the military? We know as anime watchers that tanks and bombs don’t work on alien monsters, but a teenager with attitude and a sword can kick its ass.

Freezing follows the story of a boy named Kazuya Aoi who enrolls in a special school for the genetically modified girls known as Pandoras. The male partners, called Limiters, use a special power called “freezing” to limit their opponents’ mobility. Kazuya, after an awkward first meeting, becomes the Limiter of an older girl named Satellizer el Bridget. Satellizer, despite being older, has fought alone without a Limiter until now. She is considered an ice queen who doesn’t get close to anyone and seems to have an extreme fear of men. Together, the two fight conspiracies, other pairings and each other as part of their calling to defend the world. We know that her combination of a fear of men and working closely with a boy is the set up for some great ecchi. We also know that anytime we have a battle story with girls doing the fighting we’re in for plenty of torn or revealing clothing. A lot of the ecchi in this show comes from sexual sadism, which isn’t for everyone. Now with that warning we count down the best ecchi moments in Freezing.

5. Episode 1

The awkward meeting we mentioned between Kazuya and Satellizer, happens near the end of the first episode. Satellizer is taking part in a carnival, the rather sick joke of a name they give to full combat training where you are expected to cleave your opponent, when the fight spills out of the arena and into the path of the newly transferred Kazuya. Did we mention that Kazuya has some sister issues? His sister, a powerful Pandora, was killed in battle years before. When he sees Satellizer wielding the weapon his sister used to use and how striking their silhouettes are it causes some sort of PTSD freak out in Kazuya. The boy rushes towards Satellizer, tackling her and burying his head in her breasts; he starts to cry, asking his sister never to leave him again.

We see during this scene some rather immodest shots of Satellizer’s panties and her knees. We don’t normally think of that as downright ecchi, but her reaction of confusion and modesty of her pulling the hem of her dress down to make sure it covers her knees is really appealing. The part just before the end of the show where their embrace is broken up by her topless opponent isn’t bad either.


4. Episode 3

This scene starts out rather touching with Kazuya following Satellizer to the school roof with her lunch. His goal is to apologize for getting in her way and causing her to lose the carnival the day before. She is quiet and shy in his presence, and admits to him that she doesn’t like being touched, but for some reason when he touches her it’s okay. We see the two about to have a moment with Kazuya asking to be her Limiter.

Unfortunately, it all goes to crap the moment a third-year named Kannazuki Miyabi shows up. She is also known as the virtue liberator. She tends to “contract” with underclassmen and then toss them aside when she’s had her “fun” – if you know what we mean. Satellizer isn’t having any of it and attempts to ignore and leave the predator. Miyabi considers this a slight and a fight breaks out. Satellizer’s skills are way above average and they fight to a stalemate until she is forced to protect Kazuya from an attack. She is stabbed multiple times, frozen in place, and has to watch Kazuya being kicked by Miyabi’s Limiters. Satellizer, her uniform tattered from battle, is also forced to endure the groping of her exposed breasts. The violence combined with the truly unwanted sexual contact does make this scene a bit uncomfortable for some, but is a ecchi moment worth mentioning.


3. Episode 5

Here, we have one of the most sexually sadistic scenes in Freezing. Kazuya has been invited to Satellizer’s room at the girls’ dormitory to spend some time together since a strong bond is one of the keys to creating a powerful pairing. He is in the company of two of his first-year classmates Arthur and Hiiragi. The three are talking about what a big deal it is to be invited to the Untouchable Queen’s room. Kazuya doesn’t really see it that way since he doesn’t see Satellizer that way.

The three are set upon by three second-year girls who were all defeated by Satellizer in the last carnival. Kazuya, Arthur, and Hiiragi all quickly find themselves in trouble and overmatched by the more powerful second-years. One of the girls outright states she’s a sadist and begins to torture him by stomping on his private places. Hiiragi is not only slashed by a blade, but her uniform is torn from her torso just to humiliate her by exposing her breasts. Kazuya is threatened again with “deflowerment” by an aggressive senior. The scene is eventually sorted out by a new character’s intervention before it goes too far.


2. Episode OVA 2

The physical fitness of each of these warriors is extremely important for the fate of the world. It makes sense they’d have yearly physicals. We know from more traditional school anime that these yearly physicals involve measurements of all kinds: height, weight, waist and of course bust. We get a lot of nudity in Freezing and this OVA is all about it. We see all the girls with partners measuring each other’s bust sizes. The ecchi genre has in many cases meant that the use of a tape measure and the idea of personal space and modesty get tossed out the window. We see a see a few of the characters we’ve gotten to know challenge each other to judge bust size by grabbing each other’s boobs. The event is done in good fun, without the open hostility we see in the regular series and is more in line with the ecchi comedy genre. It is for that “fun” that it makes our top 5 ecchi scenes.


1. Episode OVA 1

The short OVA 1 takes place on a training battlefield. We first get a glimpse of Satellizer geared up for combat wielding her weapon, then she sneezes. Satellizer’s uniform, like many uniforms, is made of “volt-texture” and is worn during battle because even though it seems like it tears easily it also repairs easily because it made out of energy. We witness that for some unknown reason, energy disappears when she sneezes leaving her buck naked on the battlefield. We pull back to see a beaten Kazuya face down on the ground as this happens.

It doesn’t take too long for Rana, a rival for Kazuya’s affections, to show up and begin teasing Satellizer verbally and physically by rubbing Satellizer’s boobs and inner thighs. Yes, the scene is all about fan service. When Rana realizes that Kazuya is looking at her rival’s naked body she makes the obvious decision to strip, too. When Satellizer’s opponent Ganessa’s Limiter starts looking at the two naked girls, she decides she won’t be outdone and decides to strip as well. The catalyst for this whole mini episode is simple: Satellizer didn’t strip on purpose, she lost control of the volt texture because she has a cold.


Final Thoughts

The world of Freezing is a mess and the anime leaves us with a lot of questions. We never learn where the Nova are from, who sent them, or what their goal is. We are also left questioning the Pandora program and its motives. In a way, we’re left feeling that the Pandora are slaves with no choice but to fight and die. The idea that they can’t even wear armor or more durable clothing to prevent injury is preposterous. But what are we saying? We love the tear-away clothing. Freezing, for all of its jumbled plot, is a visual feast of ecchi entertainment.
