–Miu Iruma, New Danganronpa V3 - Trial Version


Miu Iruma (入間 美兎 Iruma Miu) is a character featured in Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony and a participant of the New Killing School Life.

She is the Ultimate Inventor[1] (超高校級の「発明家」 chō kōkō kyū no “hatsumeika” lit. Super High School Level Inventor).

History

Early Life

Miu's career as an inventor included the commercialization of her "Eye-drop Contacts". However, because her principle motto is "how can you live life when you're so relaxed it's like you’re still asleep," she treats them as a failure.

The Gopher Plan V3 Kids
Part of the fake backstories created for Miu and the other fifteen students was the Gopher Plan, which supposedly happened before the killing game started. It was initiated by the government after countless meteorites crashed into Earth. To try and preserve the last vestiges of mankind before the Earth's destruction, the government decided to select a number of excellent human beings, put them in a spaceship, and have them escape.

Miu and fifteen other high school students were chosen to participate. Not wanting to abandon their loved ones, they attempted to escape from the plan.

Around that time, an extremist cult came into power. They believed that the meteor crashes were a punishment humanity brought upon itself, and having heard of the Gopher Plan, they tried to stop it. As a result, the “Super High School Level Hunt” started and spread throughout the world, and the sixteen students were hunted down.

The Gopher Plan Fake Deaths

The government then decided to counter the situation by faking the students' deaths, calming down the “Super High School Level Hunt” while providing protection to the students. The Gopher Plan was then put into action while the Earth was being destroyed. Miu and the others went to the space in a massive colony spaceship, the true form of Ultimate Academy of Gifted Juveniles.

Kokichi Oma, one of the participant of the plan, declared himself as a member of Junko Enoshima's Remnants of Despair who masterminded the Killing Game and let Monokuma entered the spaceship, effectively forcing Miu and the others to participate in the Killing Game.

It should be noted that Miu has no complete recollection of the event, as she was murdered before she actually received a complete memory about The Gopher Plan by the Remembering Light in Chapter 5.

NDRV3 Cast Prologue

In actuality, Miu's memory about the Gopher Plan was a fabrication made by Team Danganronpa, a group of people who was responsible for Miu and the other fifteen students kidnapping in order to make them participate in their famous reality show called Danganronpa, a series which tells the story about Killing Games. Miu was asked to be a participant and she accepted it.

Students of Fabrication

Miu and the other talentless fifteen students later undergo the fabrication process, where all of their past memory and personality were heavily fabricated. She also received the talent and title of Ultimate Inventor. All of this were done for the sake of satisfying Danganronpa's audience from all around the world. After the fabrication process done, Miu and the others entered the Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles as a whole different person, officially commencing the 53rd killing game season known as the New Killing School Life.

Spoilers start here.
When Kaede Akamatsu and Shuichi Saihara met Miu, she accused Shuichi of looking at "her tits". She said that all boys who wear hats are perverts, and Shuichi got frustrated with her, causing Miu to cower in fear.

After Miu introduced herself as the Super High School Level Inventor, she explained that she makes inventions that allow you to do things like eating while you are sleeping. She also said she accidentally made some eye drop contact lenses, and Kaede said one of her friends used them, which angered Miu, since she wasn't proud of that invention and sold the rights to a company.

Akamatsu and Saihara begged to Iruma

In Chapter 1, Miu agreed to invent a camera for Kaede and Shuichi to use as part of their plan to catch the Mastermind after they begged to her. After Rantaro Amami was murdered in the library where the camera was installed, Miu reminded them that they could use it to see who killed him, but the camera didn't catch the murder.

Iruma and her drone

During the investigation, she used a drone to capture the full layout of the library from above, this proves a key point in the later trial.

Miu was noticeably distressed when Kaede was revealed to have killed Rantaro, and she witnessed her brutal execution. She asked Angie Yonaga, who prays for Kaede to find peace, how she could rest in peace after such a horrible way to go.

Gonta encountered a nude Iruma

During the second trial, it was revealed that Miu had stripped to her underwear in an attempt to unnerve Gonta. Kokichi Oma had noticed Miu and described it as her having an "erotic time". Miu proudly proclaimed her reasoning and told Gonta that he should be glad he got to see her beautiful body, though it is clear that at the time, she was just as embarrassed as he was.

Iruma fixing Ki-Bo

Sometime after the second trial, Miu went to her Study Center along with K1-B0 in order to install a lot of new functions to his body.

Miu was part of the students who antagonized Angie Yonaga's Student Council in Chapter 3, claiming God's existence to be unscientific. After Shuichi told her about the computer room, she started to spend day and night examining it, which was another cause of conflict with the Student Council due to their curfew rule.

Spoilers start here.
From the starting of Chapter 3, Miu was really busy in preparing her murder plan. Using the computer on the third floor, she created a parallel world that she dubbed as "paradise" where no killings will be committed. This was only her lie so she could commit a perfect plan.


Miu Iruma being Ironic 2

Once she completed her preparation in Chapter 4, Miu begged to everyone to enter the parallel world with her. She said that she already deleted everything that could be a murder weapon inside the parallel world and stated that there might be clues of the outside world. With this, all of her friends agreed and proceed to enter the parallel world.

Chapter 4 Victim

Miu planned to kill Kokichi Oma in the virtual world killing game, and placed a bottle of poison on Kokichi's chair to make it look like he had been killed by the poison. However, Kokichi manipulated Gonta into killing Miu by strangling her avatar with a roll of toilet paper.

Creation and Development

Name


Miu's first name can translate as "beautiful rabbit" - possibly referencing her two ahoges. On September 29, 2016 Famitsu scan, her first name was written as 未兎 instead of 美兎, 未兎 meaning "not rabbit-like". Her last name, "Iruma", can be loosely translated as "entering space," but can also refer to the name of a city in Saitama perfecture.

Alternate Fates


In New Danganronpa V3 - Trial Version, Miu was first seen inside the girl's bathroom. She introduced herself as the mighty, greatest inventor all of time to Kaede Akamatsu. In instant, Miu nicknamed her as "Miss Piggy/Pig Tits" and bragging about useful products that she invented.

Personality

Miu is described as an oddball, having an overly confident, loud personality and a frighteningly sharp tongue. She considers herself a beautiful genius, and every time she opens her mouth she spews a parade of reckless remarks and insults, strongly putting pressure on others. She uses the Japanese word "ore-sama" to refer herself, which is considered very arrogant and more traditionally masculine.

However, Miu's arrogant personality seems to be only a mask which can drop fairly easily. This often happens when her festival of coarse language and dirty jokes actually get replied or ignored. Then, her personality quickly changes into a timid weakling, who is terrified of other people being angry with her.[4] Because of this, she has the charm similar to an innocent child.[5]

As an inventor, she is skilled but also an eccentric who treats her failed projects with the idea that "I transferred the rights to the company, so it's got nothing to do with me".[6] She has made all kinds amazing conviniences both inside and outside of the game, but only deems her inventions as a success when they help the user to perform a task while sleeping.

Miu has a very cowardly and self-centered personality, immediately looking for excuses to be absent from the Class Trial after being reminded that she would be executed with everyone reaches the wrong conclusion. Also, despite her amazing inventive genius, she is rather dumb when it comes to other matters, being usually ignored by the other characters during trials.

Her Elect Hammers prove very useful when her friends manage to complete the tunnel dungeon in Chapter 5.

Because he is a robot, Miu took a special interest in Keebo and even appears to feel sexual attraction towards him, though it's unclear if he is aware of this. As her talent would indicate as such, she would often perform maintenance on him, in a rather suggestive manner. It was shown that Miu is interested with Keebo's talent and features since she went inside his talent research room without his permission. Her intense personality makes Keebo feel very shy and blushed a lot due to Miu's compliments and remarks, and Miu in turn thinks he is cute. Keebo was shocked when he discovered Miu's corpse and said how he truly misses her a lot. He's only to still speak fondly of her even after chapter 4.

Miu feels irritated by Kokichi and believes that he is the mastermind. She thinks he is a compulsive liar and tends to insult him by calling him a shota. In chapter 2, Kokichi had noticed Miu stripping to her underwear and states that she is having an erotic time.

In chapter 4, Miu attempted to murder Kokichi in the virtual world killing game and placed a bottle of poison on his chair to make it look like he got poisoned. However, Kokichi lured Gonta into killing Miu by strangling her with a roll of toilet paper. Later when Gonta was found as a culprit, Kokichi told Monokuma to execute him as well which could prove that Kokichi regret what he did but it can be hard to tell if that was part of his lying nature.

Kaito Momota

Being the two loudest and outspoken characters, they get into disagreements. These disagreements can cause them to throw insults at each other. During the Danganronpa V3 demo, Miu calls Kaito a "flower-garden brained idiot." Because these two can get emotional, both can end up losing their tempers, with Kaito scaring Miu in the end.

Kaede Akamatsu

The two seem to have a friendly and fond relationship, Miu affectionately nicknaming Kaede "Bakamatsu".

Shuichi Saihara

When Shuichi and Kaede first approached Miu, she assumed that Shuichi was staring at her breasts. Miu then called Shuichi a pervert and that was why he wore a hat. However, Shuichi then stands up for himself and Miu gets startled by this as she thought he was a weakling.
