Japanese Name 浅海 美幸 (Asami Miyuki)
"My dream is to grow lots of these flowers and turn them into a bouquet when I get married!" - Miyuki, Chapter 10.

Miyuki Asami (浅海 美幸 Asami Miyuki) is a posthumous character from Puella Magi Kazumi Magica. She was the sister (and close friend) of Saki Asami.

Personality

A sweet young girl who wished to get married someday. She enjoyed lily of the valley flowers. Miyuki was very close with her sister, Saki. Saki has stated that she was similar to Mirai Wakaba in that she had "friends" (possibly stuffed animals or flowers) who protected her emotionally.

History

Miyuki has so far only appeared in Kazumi Magica. She appears in a brief scene with Saki in chapter 10.

When showing Saki the lily of the valley flower she had grown in a flashback, Miyuki claims that she wants to make a bridal bouquet with them someday. Saki says this is impossible, as no man is good enough for her. She promises then to marry Saki one day.

Unfortunately, Miyuki dies in a car accident when the car she and Saki were riding in crashes into another vehicle and a shard of glass pierces her throat. Her death drives Saki to despair, leaving her vulnerable to the effects of a witch's kiss.

After being rescued by Kazumi, Saki made a contract with Jubey and wished for Miyuki's lily of the valley to bloom forever.
