Ganessa Roland from Freezing (Sexy Version) (NSFW)

Ganessa Roland figure by FREEing

The fourth FREEing Freezing girl is Ganessa Roland, a student at West Genetics with the nickname “The Angel of Binding.” Like series heroine Satellizer, she’s a British girl, though while Satella is timid and withdrawn, Ganessa is a haughty, arrogant, and brash fireball. In the very first episode of the anime adaptation, we see Ganessa in action as she assaults and defeats Satellizer, and for a while it seemed like she would serve as an antagonist – or at least as a foil – to the show’s lead girl. Strangely, if I recall correctly, she then fades into the background for much of the rest of the series, not really doing much until the last couple of episodes – though she does make a brief appearance in the prom episode, dressed as a dominatrix. At any rate, she’s gotten a figure of her own so let’s take a look at it.

Like Satellizer, Ingrid, and Rana Linchen, Ganessa is gigantic, being 1/4 scale. She measures about 35 centimeters in length and 19 centimeters in height. Also, like the other “sexy version” Freezing girls, she comes with a removable dress shirt, a removable top, and fabric thighhighs. A little stand is included but she doesn’t seem to need it, as she doesn’t have Rana’s wobbling problem.

The Freezing wiki lists the body measurements of the characters, and from there we can see that Ganessa and Rana are about the same height. Ganessa is actually listed as being a little heavier than Rana, but to me, this figure appears to be both smaller and younger-looking than Rana’s figure. Ganessa is actually listed as being two years younger than Rana – she is sixteen while Rana is eighteen – but in terms of appearance, Rana seems to look like an adult while Ganessa looks sort of like a middle-schooler, or at least an anime version of a middle-schooler. Part of that comes from the pose; Rana is depicted as lounging lazily while fully stretched out while Ganessa has her legs drawn to her body and is sitting up, making her figure more compact.

However, the main reason I think Ganessa looks younger is due to her hairstyle. This sort of twintails hairdo seems to be a common choice for young characters, particularly loli-type characters, and its inclusion here gives Ganessa a more youthful look than FREEing’s other Freezing figures. The drill tips at the end give her a bit of a playful and mischievous look, which is somewhat appropriate but not entirely accurate to her character.

Another reason she looks younger than Satella and Rana is because it’s not as easy to view her breasts, being that her arms and legs partially obscure them from many viewing angles. However, a quick look will reveal that her rack is enormous, certainly much larger than that found on many twintailed anime characters.

One can easily see that her bust is much wider than her torso and her breasts hang to each side, though I suppose one would say that their shape is not very realistic. It would have been nice if the color of her areolae were more prominent; they’re rather pale, not too different from her skin color, so her nipples don’t really stand out as much as they should.

Rana had sort of a nondescript expression that didn’t convey too much emotion. Ganessa, however, is more emotive; she is smiling slyly, her head slightly tilted and her eyes directed sideways, giving her a minx-like look that I find much more interesting and appealing than Rana’s rather bland expression.

I also like Ganessa’s body posture more than Rana’s. Her pose is inviting and seductive, perfectly matching her facial expression. Little touches like the way her foot curls down enhance that flirty look. More obvious highlights of her pose include the way her crotch is visible as well as the way her right leg is lifted a little higher than her left.

Of course, the fact that her clothing is mostly removable emphasizes the obvious sexuality of this figure. To start with, the dress shirt comes off in the same way as with the previous figures; the arms and sleeves both detach, and the shirt can then be pulled off of the figure’s torso. A pair of fabric armbands are provided to cover up the seams where the arms separate from her body.

Ganessa wears a purple-tinted bustier under her shirt. It too is removable.

A pair of lacy fishnet socks are also provided. They stay on fairly well and don’t look that bad, though I prefer the way that she looks without them. I think I would have liked them better had they been a different color; given Ganessa’s personality, it seems like a stronger, bolder color would suit her better.

In her most stripped-down look, Ganessa wears a pair of blue hair ribbons and matching panties. To be honest, I also wish these were a different color, like red or black, perhaps; this shade of blue doesn’t really convey eroticism and seductiveness like those two colors do.

They do look nice, though; I like the side-tie look as well.

As usual, Ganessa’s stigmata marks are visible on her back. While Rana and Satellizer both have six, poor Ganessa only has three.

I think Ganessa’s figure is superior to Rana’s, and maybe Satellizer’s as well, though I’d have to think a little harder about that one. Unlike Rana, she expresses a much stronger sense of personality and is consequently more interesting to look at. She also loses nothing in terms of sex appeal, which FREEing was obviously aiming for, given the name of the product line. Like FREEing’s other large figures, this one doesn’t really take advantage of all the advantages made possible by its size; the detailing is unremarkable and the paint is fairly flat and not particularly eye-catching. However, her sheer size commands attention, as does the attractiveness of her body sculpt. I’m quite happy with this figure; the only things I’d change would be the color of her underwear and her nipples.

I’m not sure if FREEing intends to produce any more figures in this line; I could swear that I saw an indication that they planned to make a figure of Attia Simmons, but perhaps that is just my imagination. If they do, perhaps Freezing Vibration will give them some inspiration. Curiously, Ganessa doesn’t appear on the new season’s character page, so I wonder if she will show up at all. The British student and nudist Elizabeth Mably seems to be featured prominently, so I suppose we’ll be seeing a lot more of her. (Curiously, there is a character named Charles Bonaparte. That’s three recent anime series – Freezing, Infinite Stratos, and Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Girls – that have featured a female character named Charles.)

    Wonderful use of tentacles, once again.

    ’nuff said. I like tentacles. Not interested in characters from sources I don’t know!

    • Tier says:

      I wouldn’t recommend getting too familiar with the source, either – at least with respect to the anime, though maybe the manga is better. Mamiko Noto does voice the lead character, though.

  2. Halbred says:

    Aaaaand this is a must-buy.

    The pale nipple issue affects all of these 1/4-scale Freezing girls. I have Bridget and was disappointed by her skin-tone nips (so I keep her bra on). I would probably keep Ganessa’s corset on as well, although it would depend partially on how I position her on my figure shelf. I really like the red hair and the blue bikini bottom adds a nice contrast to it. I’m not at all familiar with the anime or manga so I don’t have any context for her character. Great review and photographs–although I’d committed already, I’m MORE committed to finding her now. 😉

    • Tier says:

      She still seems to still be in stock at the usual Japanese stores, though I am not sure what sort of options you have in Alaska. I’m considering leaving her corset on, too, or maybe I’ll keep her dress shirt on her without the corset. Or maybe I’ll just let her boobs hang out; that seems like the thing I would usually do.

  3. Wieselhead says:

    Ganessa is my favorite from all these figures, she’s so sexy and I like how you can sense a lively personality just from seeing her posed like this. She’s a beautiful red head and of course I like twin tail ladies, even more with adult measurements like Ganessa is showing.

    The clothes on her are nicely chosen, it’s a quite appealing outfit in every stage, even though the stockings should be black, or the fishnet design could have been exchanged with solid stockings in the first place. Nevertheless I really like the lovely bustier and how it comforts her big boobs. Actually I think that her nipples are pretty and they look good on her boobs.

    These big figures have space for applying more details, but it never happens, actually. Of course anime art is a simplyfied style by default, but smaller figures from the better companies tend to have many details. The good thing about this scale is that you could apply rosy cheeks easily by yourself.

    • Tier says:

      I think I would agree, though Satellizer makes a good case, too. I also agree that the fishnets don’t really fit what she’s wearing; she seems to be wearing cute, girly clothes rather than sexy clothes so solid color (or maybe striped) thighhighs seem like they would work better.

      It’s a little odd how larger figures tend to not take advantage of the larger size. I see it happen a lot with figures from US companies, too; companies like Sideshow Toys make a ton of 1/4 scale stuff (I think they might have more than a hundred 1/4 scale figures in their catalog) but their detail tends to not be too impressive. The only company who has made truly outstanding 1/4 scale figures is Volks.

    Tier delivers tentacle on stigmata action! Hooray!

    Her breasts do look surprisingly large now that you’ve mentioned it. Unfortunately, I just don’t feel much desire to buy her.

    • Tier says:

      Hoorays! What a great suggestion that was. Ganessa seems like she makes a better partner for the tentacles than any of the other Freezing girls I have.

      • bear says:

        She makes a better partner due to features/mechanics or do you mean she would easily take to the idea? There’s not enough happy tentacle sex in the world.

        • Tier says:

          Due to her expression, which makes her look a little more reactive, while Rana just looks really passive and Satellizer kinda has this little smile which doesn’t seem to work too well with the tentacle stand. From the anime, I guess it’s questionable whether she would enjoy this sort of thing, since she seemed to be a very forward, arrogant kind of person; though then again, one can imagine that even with tentacles, she’s taking the lead.

          Yeah, there’s not enough happy tentacle stuff; I like both nonconsensual and consensual tentacle stuff, but there’s not enough of the latter. Heck, there’s not enough of either these days; for a genre that is often used as a stereotype for not just hentai anime, but anime as a whole, it is not actually all that common anymore.

          • bear says:

            Hmm, I’m having a hard time seeing what you mean about the expression, at least in relation to tentacles.

            The last happy tentacle sex hentai I saw was Tentacle and Witches Ep. 1. The last notable tentacle hentai I saw was probably 魍魎の贄 Bad End Ep 2. The scene with the blonde was pretty enjoyable.

  5. Tsunami3k says:

    Is it wrong to have considered purchasing a bit of blush makeup precisely to address these awkward pale nipple moments?

    • Tier says:

      Not at all; indeed, I do actually have a doll body here that I need to apply some pastel powder to because her nipples are uncolored. It sounds sorta weird but then, I guess you sorta get used to it, kinda like seeing incest in anime over and over.

      • Halbred says:

        Is that how you do it? Blush makeup? Because I’d like to give Bridget’s nips some color.

        • Tier says:

          I think most people use pastels; they usually come in little bricks which you can shave or grind into powder, and then you apply it with a soft brush. One problem with this is that you need to apply a sealer on top of it, since the pastel would otherwise smear or rub off, and the sealing spray that I’ve used (Mr. Super Clear, generally the recommended product) seems to make the surface a little more matte, which might be noticeable (though if you were careful to mask off the surrounding area, I guess it might not be a problem).
