The Ice Guy, Mid-Season Review!

February 18, 2023

This is one of the animes that I caught up to fairly recently. I am pretty much watching all ongoing anime in this season at this point. And being a rom-com lover, I’d have definitely checked this anime out at some point. But you know, we need content according to the season I just went ahead and watched it. Let me tell you, The Ice Guy and His Cool Female Colleague is a complete treat to watch for rom-com people like me.

So welcome back to another one of my mid-season reviews. Today we are taking a look at The Ice Guy and His Cool Female Colleague. I shortened the title a bit because if I put the full name in the title… Well, it’d be too long. Anyhow, I think this anime is pretty interesting and I have quite a bit to say about it. So let’s get started.

The Ice Guy and His Cool Female Colleague Is the Office Version of Horimiya

What do I think about The Ice Guy and his Cool Female Colleague so far?

The best way I can put is The Ice Guy is a mixture between Horimiya and Wotakoi. That is the best way I can find to describe it. Obviously, it is way different than those two but, there is something familiar about this anime too. Seriously, it makes me feel like I am watching Horimiya again for whatever reason. I guess it is because of Fuyutsuki but, I digress.

What I love the most about The Ice Guy is that some characters are descendants of particular spirits from Japanese folklore. Our MC for instance is a descendant of the Ice Lady. Hence he ends up making ice/snow around him depending on the emotion he’s feeling. There are more characters like this too. I love how this anime uses each character’s unique “ability” to showcase their emotions. It is done in a really good way; sometimes even if a character doesn’t say anything, you know how they’re feeling because of this.

The spirit thing can also be taken as “metaphorical” because it helps showcase the character’s emotions. It is a good concept and helps this anime stand out among other rom-coms. And the MC is literally a “cool guy” in this case. This anime definitely has a lot going for it, a cool new concept, good characters, nice animations, and a really vibe-y opening. Seriously go watch the opening, the song and the direction are incredible.


I think I’ve made it pretty clear that I’ve been enjoying The Ice Guy a lot so far. I think it is pretty entertaining and a bit of a unique take on a rom-com. As things stand right now, this anime is an easy 8/10, recommend in my book. Preliminary score yes, but for this anime in particular, I doubt it will change much down the line.
