The broadcast season of the TV anime “The Ice Guy and His Cool Female Colleague” has been set for 2023. In addition, a key visual and a teaser PV have been released, and comments from three additional staff members in charge of series composition, animation, and music have also arrived.

Based on the manga of the same title currently serialized in the web magazine “Gungan pixiv” by Square Enix and pixiv.
Himuro, a descendant of snow women living in the modern age, is a newcomer to the workforce who creates snowstorms, snowmen, and snow-covered houses when his emotions get the better of him. He is a bit unique, but his secret crush on his kind colleague Fuyutsuki grows and sometimes freezes everyone around him. On the other hand, Fuyutsuki, who is often seen as cool by others, is curious about the mysterious Himuro.

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. ……
The two seemingly cool characters are interwoven in a heartwarming “work-related fantasy romantic comedy.”
The main cast includes Ishikawa Yui and Kobayashi Chiaki.

The first key visual released this time is Fuyutsuki and Himuro, the two main characters of the anime.
The two look cool at first glance, but the impact of Himuro, a descendant of snow women who is not only atmospherically but also physically frozen, and Fuyutsuki’s gaze as she looks at him, are striking.

Additional staff information was also announced.
The series composition is by Konparu Tomoko, who has worked on the series composition and screenplay for numerous works including the “Urusei Yatsura” film series, the TV anime “Kimi ni Todoke” and “Nil Admirari no Tenbin: Teito Genwaku Kitan”.
The character design is by Karino Miyako, who also worked as an animation director on the “Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It” series. The music is by Kawada Ruka, who has created BGM for “Kin-iro Mosaic” and “Is the Order a Rabbit?” The three have also commented on the anime.

Additional cast members and music information will be posted on the official anime website and official Twitter.
“The Ice Guy and His Cool Female Colleague” is scheduled to be released in 2023.

Komparu Tomoko (Series Composition)
As soon as I started reading the original work, I was like, “I love this work so much (with Kansai dialect).
The daily lives of Himuro-kun, Fuyutsuki-san, and other charming people who are a little out of the ordinary are gentle, comfortable, and full of “skipping a beat”.
I hope that many more people will enjoy this tingling sensation in this anime adaptation!

Karino Miyako (Character Designer)
I think the work has a very comfortable balance between the heartwarming and gentle worldview and the slightly embarrassing interactions between the two characters.
I would like to work hard to bring out the charm of each character.

Kawada Ruka (Music)
Congratulations on the TV animation! When I first saw the music menu, I had a very pure and beautiful impression.
Then I had a chance to read the original work, and it was just so interesting! In the production, there were many songs with delicate and complex psychological descriptions, such as “cool but kind inside” or “really passionate but restrained,” and I enjoyed the trial-and-error process of how to express them in the music.
Thank you very much for having me in this wonderful work. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
