Similar to what I did with the initial Japanese release of Mugen Souls, I am compiling character profiles of the characters in Nippon Ichi Software America’s upcoming RPG release of Mugen Souls on the Playstation 3. This time around there are the four of the five remaining Chou-Chou forms, each of whom provide different personalities to the main character “Chou-Chou Infinite”.
“Ta-da! I’m here！Hey, hey, hey, lookit me!”
This is Chou-Chou’s personality with an almost limitless supply of child-like energy. Her words and actions match her tiny stature. Because she is always bouncing off the walls, she is not the type to be complacent with sitting still. She asks others to play with her every time she appears, so anyone who agrees better be able to match her infinite stamina!
Chou-Chou Bipolar (Tsundere)
“D-Don’t think I’m gonna be so honest with you ever again!”
This part of Chou-Chou’s personality contains not even a single ounce of compliance. The side of her character where she is supposed to become sweet rarely makes an appearance. She does occasionally open up to children and those who she sees as straightforward or “pure” people. That said, if she is neglected or ignored, she gets extremely pouty and becomes visibly distressed and lonely.
“Gross. A little toady begging a little girl like her…”
Chou-Chou’s transformed personality that is taciturn and cold. She rarely speaks in this form. Even if you ignore her for several hours, she will continue to follow you in utter silence. However, though she may not like to speak, she does not mind listening to others talk. In the interest of full disclosure, when she does decide to speak she can be extremely acerbic and can pinpoint people’s insecurities. This ability to hone in on the weaknesses of others tends to draw a lot of hatred from her companions.
“Eep! U-Um, excuse me… Please forgive me! I;ll do anything you want… anything!
This is Chou-Chou’s closet masochist personality, hidden under the guide of a timid and fearful girl. Whenever she is spoken to, she responds with a dramatic apology. Nobody is exempt from this response – not even her own peons, the Shampurus. On the other hand, she is rather brave and jumps headfirst into the fray. But when you recall that she is a closet masochist… whenever she is bullied or abused, she derives extreme pleasure from the pain. In fact, she tends to get annoyed and angry if she is treated kindly.
The Otaku’s Study has a wealth more articles, screenshots, preview videos and even a Japanese-language review for Mugen Souls (Including occasional glimpses at the games bathing scenes if it floats your boat). You can read all of them under the Mugen Souls category.
