About Haruma Miura

Haruma Miura (三浦 春馬, Miura Haruma, April 5, 1990 – July 18, 2020) was a Japanese actor and singer signed to Amuse Inc. He made his acting debut in 1997 in the television drama Agri and rose to popularity in 2007 after starring in the film Koizora, winning Newcomer of the Year at the 31st Japan Academy Prize. In the following years, Miura notably starred in the third season of Gokusen, Bloody Monday, Naoko, Kimi ni Todoke, Last Cinderella, Boku no Ita Jikan, The Eternal Zero, Attack on Titan, Gintama 2, and Two Weeks. He also starred as Lola in the Japanese production of Kinky Boots, winning Best New Actor and the Haruko Sugimura Award at the 24th Yomiuri Theater Awards. In addition to his acting career, Miura debuted as a singer in 2019 with the single "Fight for Your Heart", which was followed by "Night Diver" in 2020.


On July 18, 2020, at 1:35 pm (JST), Miura was found unresponsive after hanging himself in his closet at his home in Minato, Tokyo. His body was discovered by his manager, who had been ready to pick him up for work and then checked up on him after he did not respond to the messages, phone calls, or doorbell sounds. He was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead at 2:10 pm. Police believe Miura died by suicide, as an apparent suicide note was found in his room. The note, which was written in Miura's notebook, was undated, but he expressed anxiety and thoughts about dying. Miura's friends have stated he showed no signs of being suicidal prior to his death. Media news outlets linked it to cyberbullying and hate comments on social media, but Miura's friends and colleagues partially or completely refuted the claims.

NHK reported on July 20, 2020, that Miura's funeral and burial services had already been held. While fans paid tribute to Miura by leaving flowers outside of his condominium, his agency, Amuse Inc., announced that they will be setting up an opportunity for fans to pay respects while taking in consideration the COVID-19 pandemic. After the official website for Sekai wa Hoshii Mono ni Afureteru: Tabi Suru Buyer Gokujō List, the travel program Miura had co-hosted since its first broadcast in 2018, posted a statement offering condolences to Miura, this led many users on Twitter to tweet messages addressed to him using the hashtag "SekaiWaHoshiiMonoNiAfureteru" (#世界はほしいモノにあふれてる).

Miura's second single, "Night Diver", will be releasing posthumously on August 24, 2020, with it pre-released digitally on July 25, 2020. Gift of Fire and The Illusionist, two upcoming projects that Miura co-starred in, were put on hold. Miura's debut single, "Fight for Your Heart", re-entered the music charts, peaking at No. 7 on Oricon Daily Singles Ranking.
