|Anime||Returns Series Episode 18 Evil Spirit of the Diving Pool|
Miharu Ushio was a student of a swimming school. Also a suspect of the Evil Spirit of the Diving Pool Murder Case.
Miharu has a sturdy frame. She also has light brown hair.
Aoi Hayamiya: her swimming instructor.
Mitsuyo Nijieda: her friend.
Miharu’s family wasn’t so well-off. They ran a small rice shop, and weren’t able to give her a chance to seriously pursue swimming as a career. However, her good friend Mitsuyo invited her to join a swimming school. Mitsuyo’s parents even paid for her tuition. It so happened that Miharu was better than Mitsuyo at diving, and they were competing for a nomination to Fudo High’s famous swim team. Knowing this, Mitsuyo’s parents stopped their funding, and the two girls’ friendship went downhill because of misunderstandings.
Miharu had always felt like Mitsuyo was looking down on her for being poor. She was better than Mitsuyo in diving, and rightly deserved a nomination to Fudo High’s swim team. However, Mitsuyo won the nomination by her parents’ influence, and this angered Miharu. More so, Mitsuyo humiliated her in public by ripping the old swimsuit she was wearing.
