Shocked by the inclusion, Izu reached out to Nanichi to let him know who has accused him so that he can mend things, clarifying that he has never harassed anyone before.

However, Nanichi refused to reveal who accused Izu of sexual harassment, but instead said it was a “nonphysical harassment”.

Conversations between Izu and Nanichi found on Izu’s phone revealed that he was trying to know who his accuser was so that he could learn how his conduct had made them feel uncomfortable.
