Freezing: The Art of Explosive Deconstruction

Currently finished: Episode 2

While the concept of Explosive Deconstruction of female clothing is simple, there are many different ways to go about it. There's the "one blow take 'em all except the important part" style from Ikkitousen series; there is also the "slowly but surely chipping away until nothing left" style from Queen's Blade series; then there is "simply and properly strip them without resort to force" style found in Aika series.

So you ask, which one does Freezing fall under? Well, from what I've seen so far, I'd say it definitely falls under the Queen's Blade's "slowly but surely chipping away" method. In fact, some part of the story is so efficient in exposing female body in a particular way that it feels like we are watching an alternative universe remake of Queen's Blade all over again.

The story? I'd say it is generic to an extreme--so far every single event is predictable. And when a character appeared on the screen, I can almost tell what role is he/she going to play in the story. Yes, it is that generic.
