Miyuki Akasaka (赤坂 美雪 Akasaka Miyuki) is Mamoru Akasaka's daughter and one of the main protagonists of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Mei.


The daughter of detective Mamoru Akasaka. Inherited her father's excellent insight and reasoning powers. Cheerful, friendly, and not afraid to interact with older people or strangers.

(Translated from the official Mei website by DoctorDiablo.)


Miyuki has short brown hair tied into a short ponytail and purple eyes. In her casual clothes, she wears a green jacket over a yellow top and khaki pants. Her school outfit consists of a white uniform shirt and red skirt.


Miyuki is very energetic. She has a childish side to her in that she yells out a catchphrase while fighting tsukuyami: "Role Card Escalation!".

Miyuki is inquisitive and knows what to say to people when she gets suspicious. When she gets serious, she takes on a frightening disposition with how she glares at people.


Miyuki was born to Mamoru Akasaka and Yukie Akasaka and grew up with dreams of becoming a police officer just like her father. In 1983, Mamoru investigated Hinamizawa and went missing after the Great Hinamizawa Disaster. His body was never found, but he was presumed killed in the line of duty.[3] Miyuki and her mother started living in police housing, where Miyuki and her friend Chisame joined a girl scouts group.[4]

The teenage Miyuki wanted to figure out what happened to her father and did investigations on her own, but was forced to stop when her mother found out about it. In 1993, Miyuki gains information that the Hinamizawa Dam Project was going to start up again, meaning that any clues as to his disappearance were at risk of disappearing forever. Miyuki visited the locked-down Hinamizawa and met Tamurahime no Mikoto, who bestowed her the ability to use Role Cards and battle tsukuyami. Miyuki then goes back in time to the Hinamizawa of 1983 to investigate.[3]



Role in the Story[]

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Mei[]

Miyuki is first introduced in Chapter 1, where she saves Kazuho from tsukuyami. She hears that Kazuho is a Kimiyoshi and gives her a bike ride to the mayor Kiichirou's house, where Kazuho wonders aloud if she really has traveled to 1983. Before they get there, they battle more tsukuyami. Miyuki uses this chance to question Kazuho about her comment and ends up making her so nervous she passes out.

Kazuho is brought to Miyuki's home and rests, and when she wakes up in the morning, Miyuki promises to explain everything later and gets her ready for school. When Rena goes to pick them up and asks who Kazuho is, Miyuki makes up a story that she's a new transfer student. Rena readily accepts it, greatly confusing Kazuho. Miyuki's suspicions about Kazuho also being from 1993 are confirmed.

At lunch, Miyuki and Kazuho have a private conversation where Miyuki gives her a notebook containing a handwritten victim list for the Great Hinamizawa Disaster. Miyuki reveals that she time-traveled from 1993 to 1983 just like Kazuho.

In Chapter 3, Kazuho and Miyuki visit the junkyard and meet Midori Kawata, a friend of Tomitake's who's being given a tour of the village. Kawata offhandedly mentions that the junkyard might be the place where they hid the arm from the dismemberment murder, with the group soon talking about the dam war and the series of mysterious deaths. Miyuki finds it strange that they never specified which arm it was and then asks why the right arm was missing. Kawata and Tomitake don't seem to find anything suspicious about her statement. The two adults soon leave, and Rena shows up and finds a handkerchief dropped in the junkyard, which the girls think belongs to Kawata. Rena holds on to it.

In Chapter 5, Kazuho, Miyuki, and Nao investigate where Kazuho's house should be only to find that nothing is there. They go to the Okinomiya library to do research and run into Kawata again, who gives them help. Kawata reveals that Kazuho's family died in a murder-suicide around the time of the dam war, meaning Kazuho never existed in this world since her mother died while she was pregnant with Kazuho.
