Miyuki Tonogaya, the author of The Ice Guy and His Cool Female Colleague manga, posted a visual of Himuro’s two versions after the broadcast of the second episode on Twitter. Studios ZERO-G and Liber are animating the adaptation.
The newly released visual features Himuro in two versions: his ordinary self as an adult and the child version caused by melting. The post came with a caption:
“Thank you for watching the second episode of the TV anime “The Ice Guy and His Cool Female Colleague” ☃️❄️ I hope you check it out next week, too.“
Chiaki Kobayashi is voicing Himuro in the anime, and Yurika Kubo played the role of the small version in the second episode. The anime is based on Miyuki Tonogaya’s The Ice Guy and His Cool Female Colleague manga serialized on Square Enix’s Gangan pixiv manga website. The series released the first compiled volume on July 22, 2019, and the latest, 7th volume on December 21, 2022.
Comikey licensed the manga for English releases and describes the plot as:
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?
