The first pure foreigner in school idol history
出典 : Amazon.co.jp
In the past, school idols, namely μ’s and Aqours, have had half-Japanese and quarter-Japanese members.
Eri Ayase of μ’s has a Russian grandmother, and Mari Ohara of Aqours has an American father.
However, none of them were pure foreigners.
Emma, on the other hand, is purely Swiss.
She is the first foreign school idol in the history of the Love Live series.
However, she doesn’t really feel like a foreigner.
The school idols of Love Live have colorful hair, so even though she has red hair, it doesn’t make her stand out, and more importantly, her Japanese is almost perfect.
Marie used a lot of English words with native pronunciation as if she were half Japanese, but Emma speaks fluent Japanese that is completely comparable to that of Japanese people.
However, she does not have a comprehensive knowledge of Japanese culture, and even major events such as Hinamatsuri were unknown to her.
She also seems to have a hard time understanding special Japanese words like gyaru, and conversations with Ai Miyashita seem to be an encounter with the unknown for her.
The four official languages of Switzerland are German, French, Italian, and Romansh, but since Emma is a Swiss of Italian descent, she sometimes uses Italian in Japan.
She loves Japan and Japanese school idols, but she also has strong feelings for her native Switzerland. She loves traditional culture and is good at making sweets from her homeland.
