At the end of 2019, Otomo, along with her teammates, claimed first place at the All Japan High School eSports Championship and became the first girl to win the title. "I was absolutely determined that I would win. I wanted to wipe away the idea that because I'm a woman I can be considered lightly," Otomo said after the victory.

Not only good at gaming, but Miyu Otomo also works as a model and has reached the final round of a beauty contest for high school students.

With an impressive record, Otomo was recruited by Rascal Jester, the team that competes in the League of Legends Japan (LJL), to become the first professional female League of Legends player in Japan.

“This is the first time a female gamer has debuted in League of Legends Japan so I feel quite worried. I will do my best to contribute to Rascal Jester and to become a player that is loved by the fans,” Otomo expressed nervousness as she started a new job.
