Miu Shinonome (東雲ミウ Shinonome Miu?) is a main character in Digimon Survive.



Miu is an eccentric girl that likes to speak in riddles. Miu dislikes the fact that her brother, Kaito Shinonome, always interferes with her and so rebels against him. Despite this, she does genuinly care about her brother and doesnt want him to get hurt. Miu's partner Syakomon likes to daydream, and Miu keeps Syakomon grounded.[1] After discovering that her leading them to the shrine is what led to them entering the alternate world, she feels a large amount of guilt, feeling like everything that happened was her fault.

The Shinonome family moved to the local area several years ago and it was Kaito's job to look after Miu when their parents were away. When they first arrived, Kaito was bullied and eventually the bullies started targeting Miu as well, which lead to Kaito angrily beating them up.[2] Kaito and Miu often misunderstand each other because Kaito is clumsy at expressing himself.[3] Miu is fascinated with the occult and finds the danger of the alternate World fascinating, having wound up in it after telling Saki Kimishima and the others about the forbidden shrine. Her eccentric behavior confuses the others and throws them off track.[4]

When Miu was younger, a young man became interested in her and began stalking her. He even spread rumours that they were dating. Kaito beat him up so badly he nearly died, with this causing them to have to move home. This experience caused Miu to fear males, and had her pretend to be weird and have the opposite interests to her actual interests in the hopes no other man would ever become that interested in her again. This also had the side effect of everything thinking she was weird, causing her to have very few friends. If Takuma Momozuka chooses to call her cute, she begins panicking, remembers what happened in the past, and thinks she should change how she acts around Takuma in the hopes he doesn't think she's cute any more. She is able to warm up to Takuma, and the other males in the group, coming to realize that not all males are evil.
