Seeing more and more pictures of Chu x Chu Idol two figures, Chu Chu Astram (GoodSmile) and Chuua Churam (ALTER), and knowing that this last one is simply the fusion between Chu Chu Astram and Chiyu Nakauchi (the human heroine) when both kiss, all this makes me want to play that game :3 Did someone already try it?
Moreover, it seems Melissa Seraphy from Wagamama Capriccio has joined the second Chu x Chu Idol game characters. So, this helps me making the transition with today’s figure pictures ^^;
Oups… by the way, be warned that the following pictures can be considered NSFW, depending on where you are ^^;
Is there anyone among otaku sphere who has never even heard about this Melissa figure? I doubt so. Then I hope you’re not getting bored buy this cute little devil with her huge orange pumpkin. I am not anyway.
Actually, this is one of my latest figure, thanks to a recent reissue. I managed to save myself from ordering her since I started collecting figures… but at last, I failed. Once again. Gosh! =_=
Melissa is so damn cute. Her curly blond hair draws easily one’s attention, and her little body seems so fragile that you want to give her a gentle hug. But those red wings, black gloves and the skull on her chest reminds us to be careful with this imp.
On an other side, these anime/eroge girls showing a fang is really something I am more and more into, like with Tsuruya-san (SHnY) or Misao (Lucky Star). I am sure AS understands me ^^
I have never noticed her swirling green eyes till I took this picture. Maybe because they are often in her hair’s shade, or just because this it not where I look at first ^^;
I tried hard not to succumb. But the announcement of Chu Chu Astram figure made me have a second thought. And as it was not enough, GSC had the great idea to reissue Melissa last december. Good job GoodSmile… nice “coup de grace”.
Even if I like that big pumpkin she uses as a skirt, I did not take picture of it entirely. But you can admire the complet figure through even more artistic works at HappySoda and Ota desho?. Oh and by the way, ron~, you can also feel guilty for having me buy this figure! That’s you who let me know there would be a reissue. And JC too! by showing it to me while I was visiting… you can be proud. Tssss…
Ala ala… ^^;

Since Melissa cannot stay up without her pumpkin, I used an other stand to have her that exposed. This is a… ha! can you find out what it is? ;)
Answer : just a base from a LOTR goodie. A kind of ellipsoidal plate with Middle Earth map engraved on it, and the four Gimli’s axes displayed. The “Lord of the Rings” is hardly readable, so does the line “The Arms of Gimli”. Well, nevermind. This makes a great stand for Melissa, who cannot hide her lovely legs anymore ^^
And for those who do not establish the link with this article’s title, here the explanation: Wagamama means capricious, and Capriccio is the Italian for caprice/whim. Getting this Melissa figure was a mere caprice anyway ^^
To end with, since you now may know I am found of Nendoroids, I am impatient to play with Melissa’s version!
