A looming Threat is the twenty-eighth chapter of the Freezing series, fourth chapter of Volume 5 and fourth chapter of the 10th Nova Clash Arc.


The Nova retreat to the sea, and the battle subsides for a moment. The Pandora's and Limiters are ordered to re-baptise with someone, but Kyoichi Minase refuses as he only wants Cassie Lockheart. Alex Browning, angered by his childishness, punches him stating that he was not the only one hurt by his partners loss. Commander Sasagami is then seen ordering all remaining troops to find and destroy the remaining Nova's. Kazuya Aoi and Satellizer L. Bridget are seen together, and as Kazuya tells Satellizer that he will always be with her, the sirens go off.


As two remaining Nova retreat to the sea. The Limiters and Pandora who have survived the battle but lost a partner are ordered to return to East Genetics and re-baptise with a new partner. Alex Browning calmly orders a devastated Kyoichi Minase to follow the order. But Kyoichi gets angry and yells at Alex that he in unwilling to follow that order. Alex proceeds to punch Kyoichi and yells at him that he is not the only one who has lost a partner. Alex orders him to look around and Kyoichi sees his allies crying at the death of their partners. Alex consoles Kyoichi, saying that he understand how he feels since he also lost Milena Marius. Kyoichi then asks him how he can act so calm as if nothing happened and speak about re-baptising with another Pandora. Alex berates Kyoichi again that if those who survive do not continue to struggle against the Nova, all those who have died would have died in vain. Alex gets up, walks away and tells his underclassman: "Let's go, Kyoichi. The next battle is waiting for us."

In the command center, Commander Sasagami give the order to find the remaining Nova before the Nova's residual time reaches maximum and then explode, causing massive damage in the surrounding area.

Kazuya Aoi and Satellizer L. Bridget are next seen sitting in the cafeteria when they overhear their schoolmates talking about the events at Yokohama Beach. Satellizer gets up and leaves, agitated that she is just sitting there and unable to help. Kazuya advices her to relax. Satellizer asks Kazuya if he is ready to fight. Kazuya answers that he is and that he will always stay by her side and protect her as her Limiter. A siren then sounds throughout West Genetics alerting everyone of the incoming Nova threat.
