Freezing Vibration (Season Two)

The government is developing an artificial Pandora program for the girls that aren’t compatible with the Stigmata. What could possibly go wrong?

What did you watch and why? This is the second season of Freezing and as I selected it for my A to Z Anime Challenge I dived straight in, even despite my mixed feelings from season one. I’m looking forward to seeing if any of my concerns have been addressed, however, obviously this was made before my review so how would they know?

What’s it about? A select group of students are sent to a top secret research facility in Alaska. There the government has been attempting to develop artificial Pandora enabling them to turn half the world population into weapons to fight the Nova. To begin with a series of battles take place to assess the strength of the artificial Pandora and they are easily defeated by the real Pandora.

Freezing (Season One)

With extra-dimensional beings hell bent on the destruction of humanity, only the enhanced warriors known as Pandoras can stop them.

What did you watch and why? I first took notice of Freezing shortly after discovering Highschool of the Dead but was unable to get hold of a copy so I moved on. Now that I am working through my A to Z Anime Challenge and have it readily available, I had no excuse. It’s also worth noting at this point that Freezing is not a prequel to Disney’s Frozen. I don’t recommend that anyone make that mistake.

What’s it about? The world is under attack by extra-dimensional beings known as the Nova. They appear without warning and cause massive damage and loss of life. Humanity’s only hope is the Pandoras, girls augmented with special genetic tissue called Stigmata that enables them to fight with superhuman power and speed. They are accompanied by Limiters, boys with the ability to freeze their opponents and nullify the Nova’s freezing attack.

El Cazador de la Bruja (Season One)

Bounties, Brujas, and Besties!

What did you watch and why? This was my latest pick for my A to Z Anime Challenge, completing the letter E. I had not heard of El Cazador de la Bruja in any capacity before jumping in. It’s also the longest series I’ve watched in the challenge coming in at twenty-six episodes.

What’s it about? Nadie is a bounty hunter and she’s closing in on the big one, a young girl with no memory of her past, but she’s not the only one. Ellis’ quiet and simple life is thrown into turmoil when the bounty hunters close in. Desperate to claim the bounty, some are prepared to do whatever it takes.

Dragonar Academy (Season One)

Ash Blake had been waiting longer than most for his dragon to be born. With a Star Brand unlike any others, it shouldn’t have come as a surprise that his dragon would be a bit different, but no one would have expected Eco!

What did you watch and why? For the letter D in my A to Z Anime Challenge, I watched Dragonar Academy. Admittedly, this wasn’t a total shot in the dark as I had already read the first six volumes of the manga in 2018. As I hadn’t seen the anime and was enjoying the manga, I thought it seemed like an ideal opportunity to watch it.

What’s it about? Set in a fantasy world with a mix of magic and technology, a small nation is responsible for the world’s dragons. Unable to breed themselves, dragons are implanted into worthy humans who will later become their masters. One such worthy human, Ash Blake has been waiting a long time for his dragon to be born, but nobody expected this…

Cat Planet Cuties (Season One)

Waking up to find a cute cat-girl in your bed would probably be a bit of a shock. Imagine discovering the ears and tail are real and you’re now the point of contact for a planet full of cat-girls!

What did you watch and why? This is my selection for the letter C in my A to Z Anime Challenge. After watch Blood-C and then Goblin Slayer!, it was time for a bit of mindless fun and Cat Planet Cuties appears to have an abundance of it.

What’s it about? Kio arrived at the funeral with the booze his uncle asked him to sneak in. As a reward, his uncle lets him have some and introduces him to a cute girl. That’s where it all gets fuzzy.
