The anime was previewed on the ABEMA service on January 3, before premiering on Tokyo MX, ABC TV, and Nagoya Broadcasting Network on January 4. Crunchyroll is broadcasting the anime live as it airs in Japan. From April to July 2023, the anime will be released on Blu-ray Disc four times a year.
The plot of the “workplace fantasy romantic comedy” revolves around Himuro-kun, a modern-day descendant of the Snow Woman from Japanese folklore, and his seemingly aloof, eccentric, but kind colleague Fuyutsuki. When Himuro-kun is agitated, he tends to freeze nearby objects or summon a snowstorm, and he also has a secret crush on Fuyutsuki. Fuyutsuki, on the other hand, is almost completely unaware of her surroundings.
Takao Sakuma sings the opening theme song “Frozen Midnight,” and Nowlu sings the show’s closing theme song “Rinaria.”
Tonogaya first published the manga on social media, where it quickly gained traction, and is now serializing it on the Gangan pixiv service. The manga is still in progress. In July 2019, Square Enix released the manga’s first compiled book volume in Japan. On December 21, the company released the manga’s seventh volume.
The manga was licensed in English by Comikey.
