Freezing

Freezing

Earth is under attack by other-dimensional threats known as Nova, and only the Pandora – girls with special implants that grant them enhanced physical abilities – can battle against them to protect the planet. The military academy Genetics helps train the Pandora, who must choose a younger boy known as a Limiter to assist them in combat. Bridgette L Sattelizer, known to her peers as 'Untouchable', is at the top of her class and lets no one near her – that is, until new student Kazuya Aoi falls into her breasts one day...

eaper eaper says...

These series each follow a large group of super powered women and an unusual male lead. While learning to fight, great powers awaken that amaze everyone. Also, there is a lot of ecchiness in each series.

RisikaFox RisikaFox says...

If you liked Infinite Stratos or Freezing, you'd enjoy the other because they're both about high-school girls with super powers. There's also plenty of ecchi. While Freezing has a slightly more serious tone to the plot, the two shows have similar themes.

scizorg45 scizorg45 says...

Women with superpowers. Add one guy. Awesome. While freezing has more guys(somewhere stuffed in the background) they both generally resolve around one particular male and a group of female.

If you liked one, check out the other.

KittyEmperor KittyEmperor says...

Both series center around the concept that women have special abilities and the fact that the male lead also holds power equal to greater than those of the women.  Throw in a good amount of ecchi and these series are pretty similar.  Though Infinite Stratos is a harem and never really gets and Freezing does get quite serious and violent at times.  I still sure that if you liked one of these then you'll probably like the other as well.

RedCrossRobbery RedCrossRobbery says...

Looking for good Mecha/Ecchi series? These two handle very similarly. A male lead character that can use the mecha's in a way nobody could before, and the group of women that follow his every step.

Nikolas3 Nikolas3 says...

If you ever watched IS you have to watch Sekirei and Freezing. If you like that kinda of anime style then those two are good to watch before or after. Both animes has a good story, and both heroes fights for something. If you like romantic and fights you will be loved in Sekirei and Freezing. In both ways boys have a harem around him. If you want more "brain use" you can watch Sekirei because there the boy is not so stupid :P. But I liked both of them. Ofcourse Sekirei is 1 season longer, and thats why its good.

 

Just watch them both and i promise you will not regret.

Ghoul9615 Ghoul9615 says...

These two anime are so much alike it's crazy, the story may be different but there are so many similarites. Freezing and Infinite Stratos both are harems although Freezing has a more ecchi side to it. Both the main characters stands out, Infinte Stratos his the only male who can use a IS and in Freezing the main characters ability is significantly higher than other males.

Both the main characters has a famous older sister who are known to be the strongest IS user/Pandora. Freezing has a darker feel to it rather than Infinite Stratos but if you liked one of them you are bound to like the other.

gpardini gpardini says...

both animes feel the same way! really hot chicks that fight and a special lucky guy in the middle of the futuristic school enviroment!

sunnytwo sunnytwo says...

Freezing and Infinite Stratos are very similar. Both anime are realy great and i would absolutely recommend you to watc them, 5out of 5 for both of them. They take place in the future and they battle with summond gears against each other. The only diffrence in story line is that IS is a complete harem-scenario anime. But both are worth youre while.

batmannoLuckysocks batmannoLuckysocks says...

Echhi, harem, etc. Freezings a little darker than IS and has a bit of dismemberement but both are fairly enjoyable.

Bradalee Bradalee says...

A ridiculous amount of fanservice, a group of battle hardened super-powered girls chasing after a bland male lead and a plot that is pretty generic. These shows have it all in common.

If fanservice is your thing then these series are perfect for you, although Freezing is a fair bit more explicit than Infinite Stratos ever gets. 

Thrawn Thrawn says...

So, how about them boobs. Good stuff, fanservice a plenty and both shows have plenty of them to jiggle around. Well, Freezing to a greater extent but babes who get super powers or some higher power over guys, complete with harems, a less than great male protagonist (Wussbag Wimp-Lo for Freezing and Star-Grade Density for Infinite Stratos), delicious ecchi scenarios, fights against bad girls and budding romances with a pointless fanservice filler episode or two. Freezing is by far the more explicit of the two in terms of nudity and violence but both are still decent watches if you're in the mood for nothing too taxing on the brain.

LordMace LordMace says...

They are both similar that in a combat school setting both males have a unique ability. Both are filled with Harem, Action, and Ecchi. They are very similar in a great deal of ways including many of the characters.

Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou

Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou

Akuto Sai enters the Constant Academy for Magick Arts hoping to become a high priest and change the world for the better. But when the school's oracle declares his future profession to be 'Demon Lord', he finds himself feared and hated by the entire student population. Now, instead of making comrades and studying for his exam, Akuto finds himself fighting off monsters, bullies, and well-meaning classmates in various states of undress. If navigating a magical high school as a transfer student wasn't difficult enough, Akuto now has to deal with a cute android ordered to observe him 24-hours a day, the precocious attention of the flying, invisible and naked Keena Soga and the advances of the school's most popular girl. Will he be able to overcome his fate, pass his classes, and mend his friendship with the violent Junko Hattori, or will he succumb to his demonic destiny?

Tomthe1337 Tomthe1337 says...

Both of these anime fit the ecchi/harem genre while maintaining an unusually high level of quality for the genre. Both main characters are unusually skilled considering the amount of training/experience they've undergone, and have very unusual circumstances. Lastly, both main characters aren't spineless and thus come across as confident, giving both shows a steady, driving pace that will keep viewers entertained.

Takeya Takeya says...

When I saw the first episode I started to wonder whether the IS has not been created by the creators of the Daimaou.

Stories are quite similar - a boy X goes to school, where he learns how to control his abilities. "Unfortunately" for him he becomes a love object of several girls (let's harem begin!), but he seems be not interested in love (yea, chicks can wait, I have more important goals!).

If you enjoyed Daimaou/IS, then you'll like the second one :)

eaper eaper says...

While feature high speed action, a harem, and a lot of fanservice, these series both have the main characters fighting a mysterious force. If you enjoy harems, ecchi, and action, these series work well together.

KittyEmperor KittyEmperor says...

Both series revolve around a young man who goes to a special school so that he can learn to control his abilities.  Though in the case of Ichiban abilities means learning to control magic and in Infinite Stratos(IS) it means learning how to properly control this mech suit.  Also in both cases the male lead finds himself in the company of some rather attractive ladies.  So if you like something with a decent amount of action and a good amount of fan service then look no further than either one of these.

Am3n Am3n says...

realy great anime. But fights are kind'a boring. still story is great. Realy loved romance story. IS and Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou has great interest in how girls feels about boys and boys about girls.

Thrawn Thrawn says...

One man and his harem, when combined have enough power to fight a war. Both shows are about a guy building up his harem and going through a school life out of the ordinary (Mecha for IS and magic for Daimaou), complete with some delicious ecchi, the obligatory beach episode and that lovable, genre-savvy harem member.

silvericeman92 silvericeman92 says...

two awesome shows one guy surround by ladies who all like him, while being clueless about it always a sure way to add some humor and some pretty awesome fight scenes

Strike Witches TV

Strike Witches TV

In the year 1939 an unknown enemy called the Neuroi appeared. Their purpose is unclear and origin is unknown, but they attack and destroy any signs of human civilization they come across. Because conventional weapons are useless against them, humanity developed a striker unit known as the Strike Witches to combat the Neuroi. Miyafuji Yoshika is a girl with exceptional healing power but lacks control; she has been scouted to join the Strike Witches and fight the Neuroi, but all she wants to do is take over her family clinic. After witnessing an attack by the Neuroi on her way to find out if her father is still alive, Miyafuji resolves herself to fight for and protect the people around her. Who or what are the Neuroi and what do they want?

eaper eaper says...

Mysterious force: check.

Girls in almost no clothes: check.

Girls being the only ones able to fight in mecha like things (for the most part): check.

Ecchi: check.

If these are the reasons you are watching one of these series, go check out the other.

KittyEmperor KittyEmperor says...

If you liked one of these then you may like the other because in both series the main pilots of these rather special equipment can only be piloted by women, though in Infinite Stratos the male lead is the only guy capable of also piloting one of these units.   Also in both cases the outfits the girls wear are rather no existent or at least missing a few items.  Though Strike Witches deals more with a larger war that is going on and Infinite Stratos is for the most part about people going to a special school they both still feel somewhat similar.

corkboard corkboard says...

Both shows are about girls who operate special girl-only mechs.  Each of the girls represents a stereotype of her respective country.  The enemy in each is a mystery, and there is a strong current of international intrigue in each.  Both are loaded with delicious ecchi.

Infinite Stratos is a harem comedy while Strike Witches is more about building friendships.  Both have great plots and battle sequences, and many of the characters have almost direct parallels.  If you loved either one, you'll certainly love its counterpart.  Both are excellent.

Sorawalker Sorawalker says...

They have a similar kind of story setting and both with characters that look awfully similar and with few clothes.

halfdeadly halfdeadly says...

i totally agree. although Infinite Stratos doesnt really have anything to do with war, in both shows you have some mysterious forces, and half naked girls fighting with some extra gear.

Madoka Madoka says...

If you liked IS you might find strike witches to be some great fun. SW is a female only cast so it cuts out the harem side of IS but instead replaces it with some good humor and story. The sereies use a similar concept of the girls with mech units or suits, though in SW it's more a booster attached to the legs. The series are quite similar in some comedy used and it's likely you should find SW enjoyable if you enjoyed IS

trebuchet151 trebuchet151 says...

Both anime have a similar feel, there is a school for piloting mecha and the main character is a male in a world of pilots that in one case is all female and in another case the males aren't piloting even though some can.

KittyEmperor KittyEmperor says...

One guy capable of piloting a mecha surrouned by a group of women most of whom to are also capable of piloting mechs as well.  Though of course there are differences for example Isekai has more of classical fantasy world feel to it and Infinite Stratos has more of a slightly furturstic feel to it.  Also in Isekai that while the mecha battles are important they don't play as large of a role for a time as they do in Infinite Stratos.  Still if you liked one of these then you may to check out the other as well.

Adoondas Adoondas says...

In bouth anime we have a male character that is somewhat dense, is able to operate robot suits, wich is normally imposible(this reffers more to infinite stratos), and have a harem at their disposal that they are unaware of.Bouth  anime have a simmilar feel to them.

Kreados Kreados says...

in both infinite stratos and Isekai no Seikisho Monogatari, society is dominated by females as they are the ones who can pilot the mecs, there are more male pilots in Monogatari then IS, but they are still as valuable. Both series have a good harem and are pretty ecchi. If you like one, chances you will like the other.

Sasukefanx12 Sasukefanx12 says...

Both of these anime involve a school based around futuristic fighting and military arts. There is just the right mix of normal school life and futuristic combat in both. That and the male leads are very similar in both in that they're both sort of misfits that have special abilities and several girls vying for their affections...though more so in IS.

TomikelT TomikelT says...

Both anime follow the Harem genre. Infinte Stratos is more blunt about relationships and is more about arena combat. Chrome Shelled Regios has a more suttle approch to the relationships and is more or less watching Layfon kill every polluted beast while the girls and bystanders watch in awww.

TenaciousJ728 TenaciousJ728 says...

Watching the first few episodes of IS, Chrome Shelled Regios flashed through my head. Both...

  • involve studying in some sort of academy to prepare students for combat
  • take place in the future
  • fall under Harem in a sense
  • students' combat skills are used in an arena... for the most part

Characters aside, they're only different because IS uses mecha-ish exoskelletons as a "power" as opposed to CSR which actually uses psychic powers.
