Several prominent Pandora from all over the world are summoned to the Alaska Base including Satellizer L. Bridget, Rana Linchen, Chiffon Fairchild, and Elizabeth Mably with their Limiters. After meeting several World Class Pandora, the E-Pandora Project begins.
The E-Pandora and the Pandora are made to have mock battles to asset the progress of the E-Pandora. The E-Pandora's are beaten easily though Amelia Evans puts up a fight against Elizabeth before collapsing.
Despite the dangers, Marks Spencer orders the start of Mission-Synchro and the use of the Mark IV drug which is meant to stabilize the vitals of the E-Pandora during Mission-Synchro but has some bad side effects.
The Mark IV is given the E-Pandora, Gina Papleton. She gets stronger but eventually experiences excruciating pain and undergoes Novafication. She escapes the laboratory in order to warn her friends but before she can, she is killed by Charles Bonaparte. The E-Pandora mourn Gina's death but are reprimanded for it.
Elizabeth tries to defend the E-Pandora and requests the assistance from her family. But the Chevalier retaliate and creates a scandal which nearly ruins the Mably family and their business. Elizabeth is then tortured by the Chevalier. Olivia L. Bridget, Satellizer's stepmother, has a conversation with her daughter.

11th Nova Clash ArcEdit
- Main article: 11th Nova Clash
- Spans through Chapters 82 – 92
Summary Amelia Evans is enraged when she discovers that Scarlett Ohara used the E-Pandora project simply as a means to further her research of Maria Lancelot's genetic map. Her emotions cause her to fully Nova-fy; she becomes an unknown Nova-Type and absorbs Ohara's developing Maria clones. Amelia (Nova form) emits physic waves that cause Pandora with high stigmata compatibility rates to Nova-y, with two fully Chevalier Pandora also fully Nova-fied. A resulting fight occurs between the Pandora of Alaska base and the three Nova forms. The Nova forms deploy Nova-fied Pandora (over 70 forms) and attempt to destroy Alaska base's solar generator. The Pandora, which include prominent Pandora from the Chevalier as well as the Genetics students try to stop them.
In the meanwhile, Satellizer L. Bridget and Rana Linchen, now under the influence of Amelia (Nova form) continue to fight Chiffon Fairchild. Eugene, Chiffon's Limiter, tells Kazuya Aoi to communicate with the two through Ereinbar Set. Kazuya manages to do so and breaks the two out of their trance. The 3 Pandora and the two Limiters then confront the unknown Nova type, Amelia, as they are the only people that stand between her and the generator.
Chiffon opens her eyes to us for the first time, showing an uneven line that runs down her pupils, similar to what was seen in the Maria clones. Chiffon demonstrates her true abilities as she is capable of Novalizing at will, levitating, deflecting the feared particle beams, and utilizing particle beams of her own. Her Illusion Turn completely negates Amelia's (Nova form) attacks. Chiffon, however, senses Amelia's rage from within the Nova form. She telepathically communicates with her to convince her to forgive the Chevalier for manipulating and using the E-Pandora. She fails, and Amelia causes her Nova form to collapse into a sphere shape and prime to detonate. Although Gengo Aoi orders all personnel into underground bunkers, the explosion happens too quickly. Chiffon absorbs the energy of the blast, but her body disintegrates as a result. She says farewell to her fellow Pandora and silently tells Ticy Phenyl that she will be the best suited to succeed her as President. Elizabeth retires to take care of Andre, who may lose his eyesight.

Valkyrie Introduction ArcEdit
- Main article: Valkyrie Introduction Arc
- Spans from Chapter 97 - 116
Summary This marks the first Arc of the second storyline of Freezing. Under Gengo Aoi's leadership and Howard L. Bridget's financial backing, the once shelved Project Valkyrie is put into action. Five masked girls fall from a helicopter and land in West Genetics' stadium, and they are revealed to be the Valkyries, who prepare to fight a Type-S Nova replicate in front of the West Genetics student body. The girls show off their abilities and defeat the Nova replicate. They unmask themselves and are call-out by name: Lucy Renault, Tiziana Ferrari, Christine Evora, Franka Porsche, and Ouka Honda.
After the girls' demonstration, a new team is planned to take effect: Platoon 13, which is meant to combine the Valkyries and some of the best Pandora with their Limiters. When Rana Linchen and Satellizer L. Bridget (with Kazuya Aoi) are added to the team, surprisingly over the third year Pandora, the two formally meet the Valkyries with Ouka being Kazuya's cousin and his fiancée, which takes Rana and Satellizer by surprise. Kazuya and Ouka get into an argument, which is stopped by Yu-Mi Kim, her colleagues, and the arrival of Cassie Lockheart, Charles Bonaparte, and Roxanne Elipton with their respective Limiters. Together, all fourteen of them are slated to become members of Platoon 13 with the top-ranked Chevalier Su-Na Lee as their commander.
In general, the West Genetics student body is jealous of Platoon 13 due to their special treatment, special training, different uniforms, and separate classes. In addition, the Valkyries and Pandora do not get along, mostly due to the bickering between Christine and Roxanne as well as the Pandora not functioning together due to Charles' leftover feelings from her defeat at Elizabeth Mably's hand. Charles also expressed her distaste for the traitors, Satellizer, Kazuya, Rana, and Cassie, refusing to cooperate with them outside training or the battlefield. She then proceeds to carry this negative attitude when being confronted by Attia Simmons. The two girls talk, which escalates into a violent duel with Charles being the clear victor. When Attia refuses to back down, Charles mutilates her opponent by carving out one of her breasts and receives two days of confinement as a result.
Meanwhile, Satellizer meets Gengo Aoi, who has invited her to dinner with Kazuya. Things go south a bit when Gengo teases the pair and admits he knows about Satellizer's history. Gengo also confesses that Su-Na is his personal maid. Futhermore, Kazuya finds a family photo album, which contains a ripped picture of the Girls of Lab 13. To Kazuya's shock, Chiffon is also in the picture, but she has long hair, her eyes are open, and she is not smiling. The picture dates over forty years ago, and Kazuya becomes suspicious of his grandfather, who soon realizes that Kazuya had seen the album.
The rest of Platoon 13 hears of Charles' outrageous actions and the rest of Team Arnett hear about the situation as well with Arnett McMillan silently waiting for the chance to attack. He opportunity comes when Charles is released. Arnett, Creo Brand, and Ingrid Bernstein arrive to combat Charles but are rebuffed by Cassie and Roxanne. Arnett quickly dispatches the two of them and fights Charles in a fierce duel of Tempest and Accel in which Arnett proves a more challenging opponent for Charles then Attia or Elizabeth herself. The battle escalates with Satellizer interfering, but two the resume fighting only to be stopped for good by Ticy Phenyl.
After the incident, West Genetics prepares for the joint-exercise between West Genetics and Platoon 13. When Kazuya goes to think about many of the recent events, he encounters Lucy, the silent member of the Valkyries. She, however, breaks her silence and kisses Kazuya relaying him information about Maria and Lab 13, causing him to fall, overwhelmed. He is helped by Ouka, who explains the little of what she knows about Lucy before the story moves to the joint-training exercise.
12th Nova Clash ArcEdit
- Main article: 12th Nova Clash Arc
- Spans from Chapters 117 - 142
Summary This marks the first Nova Clash in the second part of the Freezing main storyline. The clash begins as a joint training exercise organized in the previous arc to determine and compare the effectiveness of the new Platoon 13, featuring the new Valkyries, against the pre-established pure Pandora-Limiter teams. The exercise starts well with the four platoons, led by Roxanne, Ticy, Arnett, and Miyabi, fighting dummy Nova and Platoon 13 defeats the first one. Though the fake monster's core is destroyed, it continues to operate, actually sending a frequency and wavelength below human hearing that resonates with the Stigmata, known as the "Voice of the Nova." Once an infinity symbol appears in the sky, black smoke covers the training ground, and all of the Pandora are forced to combat the black smoke, which embodies their hates, insecurities, and fears. Rana Linchen faces her deceased sister, Satellizer L. Bridget fights the illusion of Kazuha Aoi, Ticy Phenyl encounters Chiffon Fairchild, Arnett McMillan was shown hallucinating over the illusion of Roxanne Elipton, and Roxanne was initially plagued by the visage of three deceased Pandora of her unknown past.
Gengo Aoi is plotted against by Atsuko Seiga, but he already knows everything that is happening and wonders who will stand at transcendence. Headquarters realize the Faylan Generators are causing the phenomenon, melting, and they have lost control of them. The world ranked Pandora deduce the causes of breaking and send word that the Stigmata must be kept below thirty percent to prevent losing oneself to chaos or the Stigmata must be ripped from their bodies, which Cassie Lockheart is ordered to do. The Valkyries with their Injection Stigmata are unaffected by the resonating and Gengo gives word for them to cut down the dummy Nova with the full extent of the their Plasma Weapons.
Rana and Satellizer struggle against their inner demons, Satellizer losing limbs for the first time. She ultimately develops a new attack and defeats Kazuha only to realize she's nearly killed Kazuya. Satellizer ultimately transcends, saving Kazuya, and Rana becomes the second. However, the Nova react negatively to the transcendence of the two humans and the dummies release rock-like figures from their bodies that mold into real Nova, "Humanoid Forms," that arrive on the training grounds in the span of hundreds. Another new Nova, the Nova Commander, is spotted overhead, controlling the foot-soldiers. The Chevalier arrive to the sight of the clash, but with their lowered Stigmata synchrony, they and the West Genetics Pandora and Limiters are quickly overwhelmed and dozens are killed.
Gengo is surprised to learns that a Pandora has transcended, and even more disturbed that the Nova are rapidly evolving. He heads to the Ravensbourne Nucleotide to converse with Maria Lancelot when Sister Margaret arrives and is forced to trust Gengo on the recent, unstable events. When "appropriate countermeasures" are being taken, Su-Na is shown about to open three pods beneath Gengo's lake house.
Roxanne and Charles are assaulted by Nova Form Arnett, and Roxanne defeats her though Charles has lost an arm. They encounter the new Nova and Roxanne faces them while Charles retreats with Arnett on Roxanne's orders. The American's Volt Weapon is revealed to be a Plasma Weapon, the only one belonging to a Pandora, and she is the only Pandora able to wound the new Nova with her lowered synchrony rate. Roxanne is ultimately immobilized, but she catches the attention of the Nova Commander; the two fight off-panel as the infinity symbol appears in the sky. When Charles Bonaparte and Arnett are nearly killed by the Humanoid Forms, Rana, Satellizer, and Kazuya rescue them before taking off to find Roxanne. Meanwhile, Ticy hates her new role at the academy and runs from everything, even Chiffon's illusion following her. She saves a classmate until she herself is attacked by a Nova. Elizabeth Mably arrives with André Françoise, and they save her. Ticy realizes her strength will be meant to defend Elizabeth, and she fights. Both are overwhelmed until Chiffon, who has not been an illusion, allows Ticy to transcend and defeat the Nova. Ticy passes on the title of Student Council President to Elizabeth, but Elizabeth dubs Ticy the strongest Pandora of West Genetics.
Lucy Renault saves her Valkyrie contingent from the clutches of another saurian Nova. She declares herself a True Pandora and says her ferocious sisters do not want humans to transcend. She orders the Valkyries to flee as she takes over the situation.
Roxanne is shown brutally defeated by the Nova Commander and becomes a Nova slave in an Assimilation attack. Rana fights her and nearly kills her until Charles scream awakens Roxanne from the Nova's control. However, Roxanne obliterates her own body to save her comrades. The four girls retaliate against the Nova only to be thoroughly outclassed, feeling the monstrous presence Chiffon Fairchild once bore. Satellizer decapitates the Nova with her transcendent speed, but the Nova generates a human face and mortally wounds Arnett before cutting off Rana's arms. It moves to kill Kazuya and Satellizer until a pink-haired girl arrives on the scene.
Two other Pandora obliterate the Humanoid Forms, and the Legendary Pandora are formerly introduced: Cassandra, Teslad, Windy May, and Lucy Renault with the deceased Chiffon Fairchild as the fifth sister. Cassandra, Teslad, and Lucy handle the Humanoid Forms while Windy heals Arnett, Satella, Rana, and Charles wounds while Roxanne is fully revived. The Nova Commander attacks Windy, but kills she it with a swing of her warhammer Volt Weapon.
The Pandora are overcome with shock and instinctive fear of the monstrous woman, and the other Legendary Pandora arrive. Cassandra lovingly hugs Kazuya, and Gengo Aoi and Su-Na arrive on the scene, telling Kazuya the Legendary Pandora are his family.

Summary Gengo Aoi is brought in to the Chevalier headquarters following the chaos of the 12th Nova Clash. The Chevalier are livid that Gengo kept the Legendary Pandora secret; however, Gengo retorts that the Chevalier have kept secrets from him, the instigator of the Pandora Project. Gengo keeps the truths clash of hidden and slyly suggest to Chevalier Commander Alfred Hughes that he's through with the Chevalier. Gengo and Alfred later have a video chat after another Chevalier conference; the Chevalier are enraged and Alfred tries to calm them. Gengo privately admits that revealing the true connection between the Aoi Family and the Legendary Pandora would lead to chaos.
Sister Margaret briefs the West Genetics underclassman on the recent 12th Nova Clash, introducing the two new types of Nova, the Humanoid Forms and the Pandora-Type; the students begin to suspect that secrets are being kept from them.
Gengo detains the fifty-seven survivors of the recent Nova Clash, ordering lethal force onto anyone who tries to escape. Kazuya, detained with the Legendary Pandora awakens to Cassandra next to him and Gengo reveals that Cassandra is his aunt. Kazuya meets Gengo in his office and Gengo reveals that Kazuya and his sister are the grandchildren of the first Pandora Maria Lancelot. Kazuya rages at his grandfather and runs out of the building, dismissing Rana and Satellizer along the way. Lucy confronts him and forces him to accept this undeniable truth.
Gengo then orders his grandson to go on a date with his aunts, the Legendary Pandora while Satellizer L. Bridget, Ouka Tenjouin, and Su-Na Lee supervise. Ouka and Satellizer argue during the trip while Kazuya is very insecure around his aunts. Cassandra comes across a little girl and quickly becomes attached to her, even attacking the girl's mother when she tries to take back her daughter. Windy May steps in and calms Cassandra. When Su-Na gives her report of the outing, she omits this critical incident. Gengo also drops hints to Su-Na about his relationship to the Legendary Pandora.
As the Chevalier's predicted, Gengo is orchestrating a new organization out of the Chevalier's control with the Transcendent Pandora, Legendary Pandora, and Valkyries as the core combatants of the team. Gengo has received support and funding from anonymous sources and coerces Atsuko Seiga into his scheme while Su-Na readily follows Gengo into his coup against the Chevalier. Another core element of Gengo's plan in the creation of the Legendary Stigmata to be equipped to the Transcendent Pandora. Atsuko struggles to accomplish this goal, causing Gengo to enlist Scarlett Ohara who arrives with Amelia Evans. Scarlett agrees to help Gengo after seeing "everything" from the woman Gengo chose over her, Maria Lancelot, who is revealed to be alive.
The Chevalier secretly wants Gengo executed and they enlist former commander Radox Phantomheim into doing their dirty work. Radox assembles four deranged, murderous ex-Chevalier Pandora who all have nearly 120% compatibility with Stigmata and would have been equipped with Kazuha Aoi's Heroic Stigmata. Petty Layner, Jessica Edwin, and Jessica Edwin are the first women to accept the mission their criminal record would be abolished upon the mission's success. The fourth woman Sawatari Isuzu accepts the mission to enact her desire to slowly murder Su-Na. These women, known as the Busters, are equipped with Plasma Stigmata and are deployed to Gengo's base to "kill the cat."
Gengo Aoi has a dinner party planned to congratulate the awakening of his daughters as well as surviving against the growing Nova threat in conjunction with his new organization's induction ceremony. He has Su-Na Lee orchestrate both events, but she is more openly sponsoring the dinner party, for she is a high-ranking member of the Chevalier. The party goes well, and Cassandra gets drunk, while the Busters arrive a few miles away from the base. Petty beats up Sawatari to claim leadership of the team.
The Valkyries to not attend the party while Cassandra steals the show with her stunning beauty. Kazuya and Satellizer depart to discuss their relationship which has hit a stag. The pair reconcile after a scheme hatched by Elizabeth and Satellizer fails. While Satellizer and Kazuya become intimate, they are interrupted by an intruder alarm. The Busters have stormed the base, killing almost all Chevalier Pandora and Limiters in their path, for they boast a license to kill. Gengo is alerted of the intruders' unstable Plasma Stigmata and orders his daughters to handle the situation while all others are to retreat for shelter. The Busters encounter Satellizer and her classmates. A brief battle occurs but Sawatari stops it. She and Petty depart while Isabella and Jessica battle Ticy Phenyl, whom Jessica defeats. Isabella then defeats Satellizer after she molests Abel. Isabella then directs her weapon to Kazuya, but Cassandra awakens and intercepts.
Petty and Sawatari encounter Rana who is escorting the remaining Legendary Pandora at the pool. Windy May brings Petty to the ground with her warhammer, prompting Sawatari to activate her Anti-Freezing. Jessica does the same to Cassandra when the Legendary Pandora proves overwhelming. The three women hear a voice that orders them to destroy. Gengo realizes his three daughters have regressed into N3 Nova and orders the upgraded Valkyries to eliminate them. Windy May quickly proves terrifying as her aura alone is enough to cause Sawatari to flee in fear. A hypnotized Windy uses her own Anti-Freezing and kills a Pandora, and Christine and Ouka intervene before Windy could attack Rana. However, Lucy assumes her true form and combats her sisters instead. Petty flees and abandons her mission.
Petty soon encounters Sawatari and the latter's true nature is revealed when Petty berates her for fleeing. Sawatari baits Petty into attacking her with psychological warfare as she does with all of her eventual victims. Sawatari easily defeats Petty and splits her skull in half. Sawatari then goes on her own murder spree, happily killing Chevalier Pandora until she intercepts Gengo and Su-Na who need to retreat to West Genetics in order to revive Maria and quell her daughters. Sawatari kills two of Gengo's escorts before striking a deal to mutilate Su-Na to ensure Gengo's safety. Sawatari goes back on her word and attacks Gengo. Su-Na's backstory is revealed. She is a sociopath who is accepted by Gengo for who she is. She attacks Sawatari as the pink-haired Buster always fantasized, and Sawatari nearly cuts Su-Na in half with absolute delight. Before Sawatari could do anymore harm, Scarlett and Amelia arrive.
Cassandra is paralysed by Jessica's Anti-Freezing, but she levitates herself and blocks an attack from Isabella after assuming her combat attire. Cassandra releases a massive particle cannon that dissolves Isabella's arm. Determined to keep fighting, Isabella activates the five Plasma Stigmata on her back to regenerate her arm, but she cannot. Everyone must now look on in absolute horror as Cassandra summons five N3 Nova to the base, beginning the 13th Nova Clash.

Non-Arcs: Filler and Interlude chaptersEdit
The fillers that interrupt arcs and the interludes between arcs.
Summary This interlude takes place after the Satellizer and Rana's battles with Arnett and Creo during the Third Year Retaliation Arc; where Elizabeth announces that they'll have to reluctantly back away from Satellizer, what her entourage doesn't know is that this wasn't her own choice to start with. She was ordered by an even higher ranking Pandora, who'd finally caught on to what's been happening. Following that, Kazuya decides to take Satellizer to a theme park as a means to apologize for what happen during the time they were together. A food eating was announced with a wiener dog made of solid gold as a prize; Satella wants it and by fate, Arthur and Ganessa were also at the park and decided to join the contest. Both were reaching their limits, but when it was mentioned that hamburgers were the final dish, all bets are off by then. Satella stacked all five of them and scarf then all down, claiming the victory and the Golden Dachshund. Satella and Kazuya then talk about their day; in the meantime Ganessa was still raging over her defeat while getting a piggyback from Arthur (poor thing)
