Preview for episode 3 of The Ice Guy and His Cool Female Colleague anime has been released. The new episode will air on January 18 at 22:30 (JST). Mankyu is directing the series, while Zero-G and Liber are animating it.
The new picks up right after the recent Okinawa company trip shown in episode 2. In a bid to repay back the kindness Fuyutsuki-san has given to him, Himuro-kun decides to invite her to eat out at a restaurant. It should be recalled that Fuyutsuki-san helped him calm down with a surf drum, and offered a popsicle to return him back to his adult form after he “melted” down to a child due to the hot weather.
As Himuro-kun decides which restaurant to bring Fuyutsuki-san to, he is paralyzed in fear, causing him to freeze once again. Noticing this, Fuyutsuki-san asks Himuro-kun if he’s okay. And then all of a sudden, she offers him a massage…
The Ice Guy and His Cool Female Colleague anime is being produced 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 sixth volume on June 22, 2022.
Crunchyroll is streaming the anime outside of Japan, describing it as:
Himuro-kun, a descendant of a modern-day snow woman, is a newcomer to the company who creates snowstorm, snowman, and kamakura when his emotions get the better of him. His secret crush on Fuyutsuki-san, a unique but kind co-worker, grows so strong that it sometimes freezes those around him. On the other hand, Fuyutsuki-san, who is often seen as cool by others, is also very interested in the mysterious Himuro-kun.
Their relationship gradually changes through daily work and company events, and they also begin to spend time together in private, but both are clumsy in love and cannot close the distance one more step…
