Web Original / Ice Scream

Go To

A multimedia series created by Deep-Sea Prisoner, consisting of pictures, small comics, and flash games (called Ice Watching). It is currently ongoing, but updates sporadically.

Set within the same universe as Wadanohara, the story follows Shirogane the arctic wolf and his other friends and neighbors on Iceberg Isle. The Ice Watching segments allows the player to roam around the Isle to see what various inhabitants are up to. So far, three parts have been released. An English translation has been done by vgperson, and it can be found here.


Ice Scream contains examples of:

  • Animal Motifs: Well... they ARE animals.
    • Shirogane is an Arctic Wolf.
    • Rocma is a Polar Bear.
    • Peraco is a Emperor Penguin.
    • Rock is a Rockhopper Penguin.
    • Idate and Nagi are Killer Whales.
    • Yukisada is a Snowy Owl.
    • Mafuyu is a Harp Seal.
  • A Friend in Need: Yukisada lets Shirogane stay over at his house.
  • Break the Cutie: Yukisada is mauled by Idate in a gory fashion in front of Shirogane.
  • Bridal Carry: Shirogane lifts Peraco to safety this way.
  • Born Lucky: Peraco is described as being very lucky.
  • The Cameo: Ice Scream appears as an anime seen briefly on a TV in Mogeko Castle.
  • Carnivore Confusion: Played with. So far played straight with Rocma, Shirogane, and Yukisada, predators who get along with Mafuyu the seal and Peraco the penguin, as well as each other (to some extent). Averted to horrifying extents with Idate, who has no qualms about eating the other islanders alive if he can catch them — and then played straight again, with Idate and Rock.

  • Cowardly Lion: Or rather Cowardly "Wolf". The main character, Shirogane, is the very definition of this trope.
  • Cultured Badass: Idate is this to some extent. He dresses in a suit, acts levelheaded, uses mild language, fights fair (in the sense that if you attack him with a weapon, he'll disarm you so you can both fight barehanded), and eats people... alive... yeah.
  • Does Not Like Men: Rocma isn't very fond of men. She finds even being helped by one to be insulting to her.
  • Groin Attack: During their fight, Rocma kicks Idate here.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Shirogane thinks pretty lowly of himself; it doesn't help that there are quite a few residents that are pretty quick to insult the poor guy.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Rocma is shown to be much shorter than Idate. So much so that she needs to stand on a block of ice to reach his height.

  • Ice Queen: Rocma often exhibits this.
  • Inelegant Blubbering: Shirogane is described as a crybaby and is prone to this.
  • Interspecies Adoption: Appears to be the case with Mafuyu and Rocma. Doubles as Happily Adopted.
  • Interspecies Friendship: Between Shirogane and Yukisada and Rock and Idate.
  • Mad Love: Idate has an "unusual obsession" with Rocma.
  • Mama Bear: Rocma takes care of Mafuyu and is fiercely protective of her. She's pretty much a literal definition of this trope, considering she's an actual bear.
  • Mushroom Samba: "Persecution Complex Funtime" note 
  • Nice Guy: Yukisada is described as being nice and good natured.
  • Odd Friendship: Rock and Idate.
  • Parental Neglect: Idate never visits Nagi anymore because he's infatuated with Rocma.
  • Rejection Affection: Idate persistantly persues Rocma despite her constantly rejecting him.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Mafuyu is pretty much the token cute character.
  • Sadist Show
  • Smoking Is Cool: Both Idate and Rock are frequent smokers.
  • Sweet Tooth: Yukisada is very fond of sweets.
  • Too Much Information: Idate apparently talks to Rock about Rocma so much the penguin can't take it anymore.
  • Tsundere: Heavily implied on Rocma.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: The whole cast has both a human and animal form.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Idate refers to Rock as his friend and Rock begrudgingly gets along with him (if 'getting along' means constantly beating up).
