Mel Shido (紫藤める Shidō Meru) is a main character of Kiratto Pri☆Chan and a cool-type idol whose preferred brand is Universe Queen. Her catchphrase is "Mel-Mel", and she always addresses herself with the same way too.


Mel has sharp indigo eyes with long lashes. Her long purple hair is waist length and flares outward on each side, with similar locks located on each side of the head behind the hair. Her bangs are similar in shape, split on the corner with a single, loose lock at the middle. The larger portion curled inward on the tip.


Mel is a cheerful and highly energetic girl with an emotional side. She is a bit eccentric and greets everyone with a kiss on the cheek. She is also a foodie and she loves eating; once eating several cupcakes Mirai's mother made, and fought with Emo for a doughnut.
