Melissa Seraphy

My newest nendoroid. She is my second one so far. I purchased her from Pineappleskewer through the ads and she just arrived in the mail this afternoon. She was one of my most wanted nendoroids and I'm so happy I was able to find and purchase her for a good price. That's one more nendoroid to my collection! Well...if you can call it a collection since I only have two thus far.

Here is a picture of her still in the package after just arriving! I forgot that nendo boxes are sort of on the smaller side. I looked at the pacakage at first and thought, "Wow, there's really a nendoroid box in there?" When I opened it, I remembered, "Oh yeah, that's the size!" Yeah, you can tell I'm still kinda new to the whole nendo scene, can't you? I also have another picture of what the front of her box looks like outside her traveling care package.

Here are a couple of shots of what the box looks like. I really love how orange it is. Along with the pumpkin designs and print, it makes me think of Halloween which has to be one of the best holidays, if not thee best. I also really dig the Wagamama Capriccio logo on the box. That logo just looks so happy and fun to me! And I love the big pictures of the figure on both the back and sides of the box. Nendo boxes do that quite well from what I've seen.

I ended up choosing the pose on the far right to display Melissa. I wish I knew what the pumpkin was saying to Melissa on the back of her box. Maybe something about her underwear (it likes the style or color?) or why she isn't wearing her pumpkin skirt. And yes, she does have her pink undies on under her pumpkin skirt which you can kinda catch a glimpse of because the eyes and mouth of her pumpkins skirt are see through. For her nendo, you have the option of propping her up on her stand without her skirt, but I like the pumpkin and wouldn't pose her without it, so there will be no pictures in this blog with her with just her undies. Sorry people. XD

So okay, enough of the box already, right? Now, I don't know too much about Wagamama Capriccio or too much about Melissa's character in that game other than what small summaries of the game online tell me. I've tried to find videos of gameplay at least just to see what the game must have been like, but can't find any. But either way, ever since my friend, Tamago, introduced me to Melissa, I thought she was the cutest thing ever despite knowing nothing about her. Her design is so cute and wonderful that it's hard not to like her. I love all her small details especially such as her pumpkin skirt with the bow, the little curls of hair sticking out reminding me of those curly vines on pumpkins, her small gold crown, and the skull design on her shirt. She's just so adorable both in design and as a nendo. Here's some close up pics of her without her box because we don't want that getting in the way of her cuteness.

Just a quick view of her front, side, and back views. Love that hair. I bought her used and she had a little...I guess paint defect or something? I forget what the seller said it was. But I didn't mind that one bit. As it is, the hair covers it up. Even without her hair covering it, though, it's hardly noticeable at all, so it doesn't take anything away from her. At least for me. And I'm quite happy with her! More than happy. =^ ^= But I really didn't take any other pictures of her aside from the pose she was in when she arrived, so I don't have any pictures of her other poses outside of her box. I just didn't feel like pulling her apart at the moment.

Now here are the accessories she came with. She has two other expressions and a few other gloved arms. Her other expressions are cute as well! I especially like her pouty expression (on the right). At least...that's what I call it. The other one is her...surprised face, I guess? Her "Whaaaaat?" face? XD

I think my Marvel figures are trying to get into that one picture with Miss Melissa...

But the figure I really had to pose Melissa with is my other nendo, Menma from Ano Hana. She was my first nendoroid and she's started a trend I'm sure. I couldn't help but take a picture of them together. Menma has been looking kind of lonely sitting on top of my bookcase and now she'll have another nendoroid partner to hang with. I even took a picture of them with their boxes together. Try and give the background a little atmosphere, right?

I didn't realize they both had their hands out in a very similar way. It looks like they're trying to mimic one another.

And then there's one last picture of Melissa in her new home atop my bookshelf that holds all my comics and manga. I think she really adds color to the group of ladies I got hanging around together. Her orange really pops. I am really glad that I was able to get a hold of her. I think, aside from being a figure in my collection, Melissa will be a cute Halloween decoration come October! ;p

Misa-chanhace 8 años#1094895I just LOVE Melissa Seraphy and when I started collecting she was one of my holy Grails <3 And I was very lucky of being able to get her ^^

Of course I am happy for you too, that you were able of getting here I think it´s the Magic of that sweet Pumpkin that makes her so wantable (her herself too ;D)


Holy grails, eh? Yeah, I can see that for sure. I mean, there are nendos that are so cute, but Melissa seems to be that one character that needs to be gotten no matter what. Or least so I've seen. A lot of people do love her and want any of her figures (especially the big Melissa and the nendos). Which one(s) were you able to get?

Yeah, I am lucky. On most sites she's either sold out or people charge ridiculous prices just to get her (especially on ebay for sure but I think ebay is like that with most things unless you're lucky). I mean I love my Melissa nendo, but I wasn't about to spend over a hundred dollars just to get her. That's too much money that I just can't be throwing around especially when school is about to start. But anyway, I do think the pumpkin does draw people in as well as her adorable design. For me, as stated above, I like even the little things like her crown and her curly bits of hair. And her coloring is just beautiful. Do you think it's also her rarity, too, though, that makes her even more of a "holy grail"?

JuuJuuhace 8 años#1093861She is my dream scale figure! I'll be going to Japan soon and hope to find her somewhere~ I could settle for her Nendoroid. Too cute!

Good luck! Tell me if you find anything of her over in Japan. She is kinda hard to find and can be quite pricey. It'd be awesome if you could come home with her for a good price.
