The Ice Guy and His Cool Female Colleague anime released a trailer and a key visual on August 3. Studios ZERO-G and Liber’s collaborative anime adaptation is scheduled for a 2023 release. Chiaki Kobayashi (Lucius Artorius Castus in Vinland Saga) is voicing the Ice guy Himuro-kun while Yui Ishikawa (Mikasa Ackerman in Attack on Titan) is acting as his cool female colleague, Fuyutsuki-san.
The newly released key visual came with a caption in Japanese related to Himuro-kun, which translates into “The workplace is where white romantic feelings blow as snow.“
The Ice Guy and His Cool Female Colleague anime also released a teaser trailer, which features the two characters with their voices. “I’ve been told a lot that I’m cool or composed since I was a student,” Fuyutsuki-san thinks to herself at the beginning and wonders if she is less likely to be touched by things than others. On the first day of work for her company in Spring, she notices it’s snowing and encounters Himuro-kun stuck on the road with ice.

As August 3 marks Himuro’s birthday, mangaka Tonogaya also drew an illustration in his honor:

Himuro-kun is a living descendant of the Snow Woman from Japanese folklore. But anytime he’s around his eccentric yet kind colleague, Fuyutsuki-san, he totally freezes up! Despite the snowstorm of love that rages on in his heart, and her complete cluelessness, will he take a step forward or stay frozen in place?
