Oh hey, I’m noticed something interesting about the new DR3 episode again and no one’s talked about it! Guess I’m gonna have to!
Okay, so when Naegi’s talking about how he found the Remnants of Despair, it cuts to a scene where he finds Izuru standing alone in a ruined classroom, and at one point it cuts to a shot of a small vase of flowers. It’s just atmosphere you say? Nope, not even close.
You see, it’s customary in Japanese schools to place flowers on someone’s desk when they die. Now granted, you can’t really tell what the classroom looks like or where this desk is, but there’s no way that shot exists just for the hell of it. The thing is, the flowers look relatively fresh. But the only person who bothered to go there was Izuru. Meaning he was the one who left them there. But who on earth would he leave flowers for?
It’s already confirmed that she was on the Student Council, meaning that she had to have been involved in the first killing game with Izuru. And here’s the thing, only two people survived that killing and spoilers: Nanami isn’t one of them. And it’s confirmed that this killing game is what threw Izuru into despair. So I’m thinking maybe, just maybe, that Izuru feels regret over what happened to Nanami. Maybe he killed her and hates himself for doing so, or maybe someone else killed her and he blames himself for not being able to save her. Maybe Hinata’s feelings, platonic or otherwise, survived the surgery and remained in Izuru, or maybe Nanami interacted with Izuru at one point and we just haven’t seen it yet. But one thing is clear, he left those flowers for her. And my heart is gonna break when we get to that scene.
