The Ice Guy and His Cool Female Colleague Review: A Refreshing Take on Office Romance

Welcome to my review of The Ice Guy and His Cool Female Colleague, the second-best rom-com of the season, in my opinion. While Angel Next Door takes the top spot, The Ice Guy and His Cool Female Colleague has certainly earned its place among the best romantic comedies of the season. To put it simply, if you’re a fan of Horimiya or Wotakoi, then this anime is right up your alley.

So, let’s dive right into my thoughts on this anime. Honestly, I didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as I did. But, the story, characters, and overall execution really won me over. Although it didn’t quite achieve the levels of my top pick, it’s still a solid romantic comedy that’s definitely worth a watch. So, without further ado, let’s get started with the review.

Plot Overview

The Ice Guy and His Cool Female Colleague is set in a world where humans coexist with descendants of mythical spirits. These spirits possess unique abilities that are used to express their emotions, which adds a refreshing twist to the anime’s presentation. The characters and their interactions mostly drive the standard office rom-com plot, and the show’s presentation is executed exceptionally well, with no unnecessary fluff.

However, the plot progression can feel sluggish at times, and I would have preferred if the anime moved at a faster pace. Nevertheless, the characters and their “abilities” make up for the slow progression and keep the audience engaged. Overall, The Ice Guy and His Cool Female Colleague’s plot may not be groundbreaking, but its unique presentation and lovable characters make it worth the watch.

Characters play a pivotal role in any anime, and The Ice Guy and his Cool Female Colleague is no exception. The anime’s characters and their interactions are its real strength. While the character development may feel lacking at times, the writing is still commendable. The way the “abilities” of the characters are used to convey their thoughts and emotions is a great addition to the presentation of the anime.

Himuro, the male lead, is an interesting character who is head over heels for his colleague Fuyutsuki. The chemistry between the two is captivating, and I, too, hope that he gathers the courage to ask her out soon.

However, it’s not just the main duo that shines in this anime. The supporting cast of characters, such as Saeijima, the manager, Komori, and Katori, are just as entertaining and memorable. Each individual character contributes something special, making the overall viewing experience enjoyable.

While a little more character development would have been nice, the strength of the character interactions makes up for it. Overall, The Ice Guy and his Cool Female Colleague is a rom-com that delivers on its characters and their relationships, making it worth the watch.R
