In less than 30 seconds, We Without Wings- under the Innocent Sky went from being interesting to being the same panty-waving drivel I usually ignore.
I don't recall ever come across an anime that is in such a rush to introduce the harem so quickly as this show does. We open on Haneda, a personality-less, lucky-as-hell, unworthy-of-all-this-attention dude, attacked and fawned over on his way to school, even by a girl who is related to him.

Let me tell you all a story, a story about Freezing.
I apologize for leaving this show off of my anime preview. I only covered shows which were being offered for free, and through legal outlets. To my surprise, Freezing is available through Funimation screening, thereby making it also available on Hulu.
Freezing is a story set in a time where aliens have invaded the planet and it's up to girls given special abilities to stop them. Our main character is Satellizer El Bridget, the "Untouchable Queen" who has been undefeated in combat. She is one of the many girls who attend a school where these female soldiers are trained.
