On this episode of Nemousu TV, we get a golf episode with AKB48 Team 4 member Yamauchi Suzuran (Ranran). Ranran had been playing golf from when she was younger. So this episode challenge to see if she could beat the best round score of one the hosts of the show, Yahagi.
From the get-go, you can tell Ranran has some real golf skills. Her swing looks absolutely gorgeous. Her long putt on the 1st hole was beautiful and very nearly went in. She managed to save par on a few holes. I thought she did amazingly well for herself.
That’s not to say Ranran didn’t have her struggles. She had a few mis-hits and shanked a few golf balls. A few golf balls managed to hit the water. She had some tough times putting at times.
At the end of the round, she shot a 109. And Yahagi’s best shot round: 76. So she was unsuccessful in besting Yahagi best round.
Which led to the most emotional part of the episode. Ranran in tears after the whole thing was over. You can tell she did her absolute best she could and was sad that she could not successfully defeat the challenge. Her tears really got to me. I couldn’t help but feel for her. But in the end, after all the tears, hearing Ranran say, “Ganbarimasu!” after everything she went through made me want to support her. She tried her best and I want to try my best to support her.
I didn’t really know that much about Ranran before this episode, but now I am a fan. Ganbatte, Ranran!
