Miu Furinji is a curvaceous 16-year-old girl who attends the same school as Kenichi and is currently in her second year.She is the granddaughter of Hayato Furinji and the daughter of Saiga Furinji, the leaders of Ryozanpaku and Yami's One Shadow Nine Fists, respectively. How or when Miu came into Hayato's care is unknown, but she has been with him since she was six years old, if not earlier.In these early years of her life, Miu learned martial arts from her grandfather and accompanied him on his missions to bring about peace.
Before Miu transferred to Kouryou, she attended a famous school,but she was ostracized because all of the other girls at the school were jealous of her high grades, her athletic ability, and especially her looks. Because of this experience, Miu attempted to moderate her appearance by fashioning her hair into a plain-looking braid and beginning to wear glasses. Though she kept this facade going well into her second year, she eventually discarded it.
Despite being attractive, smart, athletic, and kind, Miu is very socially inept, to the point of having no friends before meeting Kenichi and practically no social life. Miu's social ineptness stems from her upbringing, during which she never had any time to make friends, and also from her home life, in which she is practically a live-in maid. Over the course of the manga, Miu manages to make quite a few friends due to her kind and friendly nature as well as Kenichi's help. Miu treasures her friendship with Kenichi but generally seems oblivious to her feelings for him, though she becomes jealous whenever another girl shows affection for him and has on various occasions hinted towards having deeper feelings for him. In chapter 423, Miu without realizing it kisses Kenichi on the cheek, but before anything further could even be discussed, the masters appear and interrupt them. Miu has a great fondness for kittens and becomes openly hostile towards anyone who harms one. She is prone to making rash decisions when it comes to money-making.
Miu has proven herself to be an immensely skilled fighter. While her exact martial arts disciplines have not been stated, she has shown knowledge of several styles. Her fighting style is graceful and fluid, taking advantage of her agility, coordination, and flexibility, and makes heavy use of kicks. Her skills have been honed to the point where she will reflexively throw anyone who sneaks up behind her.
