Widely regarded as a prodigy across Japan, Miya was a free-spirited boy when he was young. He loved skating with his friends. But the innocence faded when Miya became a famous skater. His friends abandoned him, as they felt he greatly overshadowed them. Miya was heartbroken and lost his passion. 

Bottling up his despair, Miya became a cold, indifferent individual who frequently ridiculed others, calling them slimes. His closest pal Takashi once said that heroes shouldn’t waste their valuable time by being around slimes. Once his favorite activity, skating turned into a joyless event for him. Miya is regarded by many as a potential national team candidate. Though hopeful, he finds no pleasure in his hobby.

Adam notices the emptiness in his heart and asks him to race Langa Hasegawa. Adam is delighted that Langa is a worthy opponent for Miya. His technique and maneuvering skills while on the skateboard impressed Langa as well. During the last few seconds of the race, Langa skates over a rusty set of rails to gain pace. This causes Miya to panic, as he is fearful that his rival might fall and injure himself. However, as Miya stops to warn him, the latter overtakes and wins the race. 

Chinen often acts bossy, which further exemplifies his cocky nature. He also cares deeply about the well-being of his loved ones. An expert at the sport and someone who enjoys being in the company of friends, Miya is most definitely an ENTJ.
