Miu Iruma is one of the students trapped inside the Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles and forced to take part in the Killing School Semester. She is known to be quite crass, making sexual comments here and there, and has been queerly read to be bisexual, because of a scene she has with K1-B0 and a possible interest in Kaede Akamatsu. She specifically has groped Kaede Akamatsu in one of their Free Time Events, and tries to look up the wax figure of Kaede’s skirt to see if she has panties on during Chapter 3 (found here 1:28 to 1:48). Also, she explicitly mentions gay/queer things throughout the game, such as calling Shuichi “Sherlock Homo”.
This leads to a classification of Queerly Read and Bisexual Implicit.
