San Watanabe (渡辺 珊, Watanabe San) is a student of 9 Grade Class 3 in 1998. She sits behind Izumi Akazawa in the classroom.


San is a girl with a somewhat dark complexion and a slightly above-average height. She has shoulder length deep purple hair and green eyes.

As a student she was only seen wearing the standard female uniform, however she decides not to wear the vest in summer, so she only uses the slightly unbuttoned white shirt with the red bow.


She is shown as a mature, serious and sociable girl, who likes to spend time with her friend Kazue Satou, which is why the two are often seen together, she also seems to get along with Matsuko Arita and Haruka Etou. Yet she is willing to do whatever it takes to ensure her survival, even if it meant murdering one of her classmates to end the calamity.


San was a minor part of class 3-3, not taking part in discussions about countermeasures and rarely involved with Kouichi Sakakibara or Izumi Akazawa's groups.

San was one of the students present when Shoji Kubodera killed himself in "Sphere Joint", and was among those who fled the room in terror.

Nonetheless, San decided to go on the class trip, willing to risk her life to break the curse; she shared a room with Yumi Ogura at the inn. San was among the students who heard Takako's broadcast in "Makeup", and left the room along with with Yumi. She was horrified when her roommate attacked Kouichi, but still caught her when he and Mei knocked her over while escaping. Unlike Yumi, San did not pursue the duo, instead attempting to escape the burning inn. In "Stand By Oneself," San, who had met up with Sayuri Kakinuma, Yukito Tsujii and Kenzou Kawahori previously, was making a run for the exit when a chandelier came loose and pinned her and the others to the floor. Kenzou, who was the least incapacitated, managed to free himself, but abandoned the others, only to be killed when a pillar collapsed on him just before he could escape.

While it is not explained how, it is assumed she was among the students saved from the burning inn by Tatsuji Chibiki, though San was knocked unconscious by the chandelier, as she was seen when the other survivors gathered outside the inn, she is shown inside Chibiki's car, being watched by the others, this is her last shown appearance as she is not shown with the group who visited Manabu Maejima in the hospital.
