FUNimation’s ‘Freezing’ Pushes Fan Service to Some Dangerous Extremes

     May 31, 2019

Normally, I review a month’s worth of FUNimation selections to tell you which anime titles are worth watching, which are essential viewing, and which are more than okay to pass over entirely. This time, however, I’ll be taking a bit of a departure to talk about a particularly dangerous bit of fan service in one of their series titles–Freezing–before getting into the rest of the enjoyable offerings they’ve made available this May. Hold tight, because it’s going to get a little adult in the early goings, so if you’re not a reader/viewer of the “Mature” variety, you might want to skip on down.

For the uninitiated, FUNimation is a U.S. company known for their dubs and domestic distribution of Japanese anime. So all of the reviews you’re about to check out are for the dub version of each anime, though some Blu-rays/DVDs have a Japanese audio option as there are some exceptions to the rule. Below, you’ll find the official synopsis for each movie and series, along with a link to pick up your own copy at FUNimation’s online store, should my review convince you. Sometimes, it’ll be an easy thing to suggest you buy it, other times, it’ll be just as easy to go in the other direction.

Check out more of my reviews of FUNimation’s home video selections here, like lighthearted sports anime titles and other fan service series that aren’t quite as problematic. You might just find a favorite you overlooked or a new addition to your catalog you might have missed!
