I’ve been so busy in my real life with work and binging webtoons, that I’ve fallen so behind on watching my weekly shows, including The Ice Guy and His Female Colleague. But the bright side to this is that today as I write this, I started catching up and came back to three episodes to watch. I’m taking a break between episodes to write my reviews so my thoughts are FRESH.
The Gang Goes Skiing
This episode is definitely up there for favorites for me because it was just too cute. It starts off with Himoru purchasing some snowflake earrings to gift to Fuyutsuki for Christmas before the opening. After the opening, we pick up with our crew at a ski resort. Turns out, Komori won a trip and invited Himoru, Fuyutsuki, and Saejime.
We first see Himoru trying to teach Fuyutsuki how to ski, but because he has been skiing since his youth, he doesn’t know how to verbalize it. Luckily, Komori takes over and is able to provide clear instructions to Fuyutsuki. Himoru’s reactions to Fuyutsuki are so cute, especially because it’s sunny out so when he makes it snow, we hear the people in the background think it’s a blizzard.
The crew decides to take a break and they ride the lift up to a restaurant at the ski resort. On the lift, they get to talking about their families since Komori makes a joke about her mom being an actual fox. We learn that Himoru’s parents are office workers and that he has a younger sister who is a student. He also notes that his sister got a job at a ski resort too, but it couldn’t be this one.
The Ice Sister
Once the crew arrives at the restaurant, they are greeted by Himoru’s younger sister, Yukimin. Yukimin is so cute and as it turns out, she is an influencer. I love how she went into a spiel about how she is a model and a streamer but then doesn’t want to disclose her channel. Luckily for us, Saejjme finds it in 2 seconds. We then see her top video is basically a mukbang, which she is embarrassed about.
Once Yukimin realizes who Fuyutsuki is, she makes a scene of how much Himoru has talked about her. Yukimin is enamored with Fuyutsuki and manages to utter an “I love you” which is beating Himoru to it. I appreciated seeing Himoru and Yukimin’s dynamic because it is a more laid-back version of Himoru, in his more country ways.
Let’s Eat Takoyaki
On their last night, the crew has a Takoyaki party since Fuyutusu brought her Takoyaki grill on the trip. For those who don’t know, like me, Takoyaki is a ball made of dough and octopus. When they run out of liquor, Fuyutsuki and Himoru volunteer to run out and get more drinks. On this walk, they happen across a big Christmas tree and Himoru takes the opportunity to give Fuyutsuki her gift.
I couldn’t help but notice that the bag was way bigger than the jewelry bag Himoru was shown with at the beginning. We later see that he overheard some girls talking about how bad it is to gift women accessories unprovoked, so he got her a cat blanket instead. I hope he saved those earrings though because they were really cute.
This episode was so adorable and I love how all the episodes seem to be holiday or event themed. This episode had everything I loved which is Fuyutsuki and Komori looking amazing in ski outfits, cute Fuyutsuki and Himoru moments, and to top it off, a tender moment between Komori and Saejime.
