Ibuki Mioda in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair

Ibuki Mioda is one of the teens trapped on a tropical island and forced to play the Killing Game. Throughout the game, Ibuki makes sexual comments about and towards other girls on the island (seen here in these screenshots from Twitter user, @WeegeeWuvver), suggesting she may identify as a lesbian or bisexual.

Fans have also queerly read her as asexual (found in this thread).
