― Miku to Ichika on her feelings, Chapter 55

Miku Nakano (なか , Nakano Miku?) is the one of the main characters in the manga and anime series 5-toubun no Hanayome. She is one of the quintuplet sisters, along with Ichika, Nino, Yotsuba, and Itsuki Nakano. Miku is the third eldest of the siblings and serves as one of the main love interests for the protagonist, Futaro Uesugi.

Miku is initially depicted as a shy and introverted character who struggles to express herself and communicate with others. However, as the series progresses, she begins to come out of her shell and develop her own sense of confidence and individuality. Miku is particularly interested in literature, and her love for books is a central part of her character's identity.

Throughout the series, Miku's character undergoes significant development as she navigates her feelings for Futaro and conflicts with her sisters over his attention. Her character's arc is intertwined with the series' themes of identity, self-discovery, and the pursuit of personal happiness. Miku's interactions with other characters provide some of the series' most heartwarming and emotional moments, particularly as she grows closer to Futaro and begins to assert herself more confidently within her family and social circles.


"Miku did your breast get bigger."

Yotsuba Nakano and Miku Nakano[src][src]

Miku is an emotionless looking girl with medium-length red hair that has strands of hair hanging over the right side of her face . Her notable accessory is a set of wireless headphones that have a triangle-shaped logo on the ear cups (Audio-Technica).[6] Like her sisters, she has dark blue eyes, an average height, a well-endowed figure and large breasts.

Miku usually wears a long-sleeved sweater that covers her uniform. She also wears black tights and puts on her headphones around her neck. Most of the time, she has part of her bangs cover her right eye. She wears a ranzel.[7][8]

Miku Inprofile

Miku appearance.



Miku is a silent and reserved girl who has a pessimistic way of thinking and low confidence, even to the point of belittling herself.[9] Futaro Uesugi notes that she doesn't have faith in herself.[10] In contrary to her reserved self, she can talk in a straightforward manner and doesn't hesitate to confront others.[11] She can also be slightly possessive, as she doesn't react well when Yotsuba kisses Futaro on the cheek to wipe some cream, and overall she gets pouty whenever another girl, especially one of her sisters, gets a little too close for comfort with Futaro.

It is shown that she has an obsession with generals from the Sengoku Period.[12] She is greatly influenced by their philosophies, to the point of affecting her real-life behavior.[13] She hides this fact from her everyone and is embarrassed when Futaro found out.[14] When Futaro challenged her to a duel of historical knowledge, she donned a set of armour similar to Takeda Shingen's.[15]

CH4 Miku versus Fuutarou

Miku versus Fuutarou.

Despite her slightly negative outlook on life, such as when she asks Futaro to give up on her[16], she is the first sister to abide by the Gotoubun Principle. Miku always reminds herself to follow this principle, going as far as compromising her own interest to make sure everyone is treated equally.[17] Miku is also a genuinely kind person: she becomes the second Nakano quintuplet after Yotsuba to accept Futaro, and the first one to openly fall for him. Her interactions with him after her first character arc have her either being wholeheartedly supportive of him, gentle with him, or worried for him. She's also seen helping an old woman cross the street in one chapter.

Miku has a depressed sense of modesty and cares little about her appearance compared to her sisters; not even acknowledging situations where her body is exposed. She didn't mind removing her long socks in front of her tutor or bother wearing flashy clothing. Despite this, she seems to harbor insecurities about her own appearance, as she confides to Nino that she doesn't view herself as cute compared to her and Ichika.

According to Futaro, each Nakano Quintuplet has their own characteristics regarding their sheets.[18] In Miku's case, she has good handwriting.


"Miku is the smartest of us."

Yotsuba Nakano to Futaro Uesugi[src][src]

According to Yotsuba, Miku is the smartest among the sisters[19] with her strongest subject being Social Studies.[20] She has an extensive knowledge of Japanese History.[21] Miku secretly admired Japanese warlords in history. She has the ability to imitate her sisters' looks and personality without the others recognising; far more than the extent of Ichika's ability.[22][23]

Miku, most likely, has the lowest physical capabilities among her sisters and she is bad at cooking.[24][25] It is implied that she has a lack of romantic knowledge, due to the fact that she's less capable to comprehend the reasoning behind human relationships.[26] She is the shy one of the family, only talking when she wants to. But later in the story, she learns to express herself more and outwards, thanks to her sister's advice.

This is about someone I know. She wanted to confess her feelings, but she couldn't because she didn't have the confidence... it seems. Because if she were to confess, things wouldn't be able to go back to the way they were before. That's the sort of courage it takes to confess. [to herself] And to think that there are people in this world with that kind of courage... Why am I such a coward?
