Miyuki Atsushi ( 御幸篤 ) is a first-year stand-off in the Keijou High School Rugby Club. He attended Azuma Middle School with Iwashimizu Sumiaki, Oku Yuuri, and Hachiouji Mutsumi, where he was captain during his third year. He has been playing rugby his entire life.
Miyuki is slightly shorter than average with a toned, muscular build. He has short black hair and blue eyes. He's almost always seen with some type of band-aid on his face.
His school uniform consist of a white shirt, a black gakuran, and black trousers. When in a match, he wears Keijo's white jersey with a black vertical stripe on the left side, white shorts, and spikes.
Miyuki is cheerful, friendly, and optimistic. He is a social butterfly who can get along with just about anyone, but he claims to particularly like rowdy, high-spirited people. He calls most of his friends by their given names, even if he hasn’t known them for very long.
Miyuki views rugby as his lifeblood. It is not uncommon for him to get overzealous during matches and act bossy or strict with his teammates, but he never holds grudges once the game is over. He becomes emotional if he has to stop playing while he’s in the zone.
He is very considerate and protective toward his friends.
Miyuki was the captain of his junior high school rugby team. In his third year, he dislocated his shoulder in a practice game when trying to stop his team mate, Iwashimizu, from scoring a try. As a result of the captain's injury, the team lost their next game and didn't qualify for the national tournament.
Iwashimizu and Miyuki are very protective of each other. They seem to have good synchronization and bring the best out of each other. However they are also very competitive with each other, but in a good way. Initially, Iwashimizu blames himself for Miyuki's injury and quits rugby. However, when they become teammates in the practice game again, they are so in-sync with each other that they have the most synergy.
When they first met, Miyuki did not like Gion very much and considered him as Iwashimizu's potential bully. But after their practice match, he got interested in him because of his spirit and passion for rugby. It is revealed in the manga that the two have exchanged emails with each other. Miyuki often contacts Gion when he sees there is a game on TV.
While he is a fast fly-half, his agility and spin moves are the best in high school in the position.
