During The Birth and The Demon Bird OVAs Miki wore her school uniform, a white undershirt with a red neck-tie, a light red jacket and a nay-blue skirt.

Back home she meets up with her younger brother, Kensaku, who informs her that after three days absence Akira still hadn't returned home and that their father had gone demon hunting. Miki becomes worried that people would begin assuming that they might be demons. Later that night, Ryo Asuka appears on a live broadcast with footage from the Black Sabbath, wherein Akira transformed into Devilman. He purposefully mislead the people into believing that demons could freely posses human beings, thus causing mass panic and rioting. And as another direct corollary, Miki and her brother are murdered by a mob of deranged demon hunting civilians for knowing Akira.
