!! Fumiyo Oshiro
!!! SHSL Opera Singer

[[quoteright:100:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fumi_profile_icon.png]]
More than just a pretty face, this native of Italy moved to Japan at a young age, and has been training in the vocal arts for as long as she, or anyone, can remember. Tending towards opera as she grew older, Fumi began performing in local venues, and her perfomances slowly began attracting attention. This escalated until Fumi and her chords of steel were invited to perform in the New National Theatre in Tokyo, one of the youngest opera singers ever to perform. Sunny, kind, and matronly, she was viewed as a wonderful symbol for the youth arts, and an example of just how far someone could go with passion… and vibrato.
