Similarly to Akemi, Gina loves muscles. She is a very competitive person as shown during her debut episode. After losing to Hibiki in an arm-wrestling match, she enrolls in her school and even moves in her house for the sole reason of having a rematch with her one day. However, she is overall a nice person. She is a big fan of Japanese culture, especially cosplay. Her love can enter creepy areas though, like when she met Mei and immediately asked all her contact information and for literally the clothes on her back.


Gina is stated to have been trained in martial arts since she was a kid and was a member of Silverman Gym's Moscow branch.

She relates an anecdote about her nation's leader Poutine to Hibiki.


She first appeared in a Japanese airport. She faced Hibiki in an arm-wrestling tournament and lost. For this reason, she moved to Japan to have a rematch with Hibiki one day and moved into her house. In Koyo Girl's Academy, she is put in the same class as Akemi, and she mistakenly believed that Hibiki was in her class, until Akemi corrected her.

She later discovered Satomi's cosplay hobby but doesn't tell the other students about it. She later decided to form a cosplay group with Satomi and the other girls.


Physical Abilities

She is trained in Sambo. An orthodox arm-wrestler who won 5th place in an arm wrestling tournament in Moscow,[1] Gina had never lost in arm-wrestling to a girl her age before meeting Hibiki;[1][4] her arm-wrestling specialty is the hanging arm style.[1]
