Before the Program[]

During the Program[]

Sanae made it to the beach and was in Group B when the class was separated. During the attack from the Wild Seven, she ran away from the other students and tried to push a boat back into the water while declaring she was going home. Her partner Tetsuya Shimura tried to get her, but he was blown up by a grenade and heavily injured. He survived, but was hit again and killed. Because of his death, Sanae's collar activated and she started to panic. Before her collar could detonate, she was hit by a grenade, killing her instantly.


  • The name Sanae means "already, now, fast, early" (早) (sa) and "seedling, sapling, shoot" (苗) (nae).
  • Sanae's surname Shioda means "eventide, tide, salt water, opportunity" (汐) (shio) and "field, rice paddy" (田) (ta/da).


  • The lag between when Tetsuya dies and when Sanae's collar activates is incredibly short, less than ten seconds. The reason for this is unknown.
