The Ice guy and His Cool Female Colleague is a RomCom revolving around an office worker named Himuro-kun who is a modern-day descendant of a Snow Woman (Yuki Onna) from Japanese folklore. Outwardly, Himuro seems aloof, and eccentric yet a kind colleague to Fuyutsuki. He has a tendency to freeze nearby objects or summon a snowstorm when he is agitated, he also has a secret crush on Fuyutsuki. However, Fuyutsuki is nearly oblivious to anything around her.
The Ice guy and His Cool Female Colleague is written and illustrated by Miyuki Tonoyoga. The series originally started on Miyuki Tonoyaga’s twitter account on August 3, 2018.
