During the Program[]

During Mission 1: "Assault", Wild Seven attacked the students' boats and shot a rocket at the first boat, which exploded killing Ai along with everyone else aboard.

Etymology[]

  • The name Ai means "love, affection" (愛).
  • Ai's surname Yazawa means "arrow" (矢) (ya) and "marsh" (沢) (sawa/zawa).

Trivia[]

  • It is possible that her character was named after the Japanese manga artist of the same name, or it is simply a coincidence.

References[]

  1. While Riki Takeuchi announced her position as the 37th, it has been proven that his announcement might not be entirely reflecting the real situation. In fact, Ai Yazawa was killed along with 5 other students on the boat that exploded, and her position should be between the 34th and 39th. However, based on the place she was locating at when the explosion occurred, she should be killed after Tatsuro Morishima and before Eri Yoshiyama. Therefore, instead of the 37th, her actual position should be the 36th.
