NMB48 After School time. On this week’s mini-sportsfest episode, the three NMB48 members on the show are Yamada Nana (Nana), Yamamoto Sayaka (Sayaka), and Kotani Riho (Ripopo).
This week, the girls do a little sports training. First, the girls are given a 50m trial to run. Sayaka finishes fastest with a time of 9.06 seconds. Nana and Ripopo finish 2nd and 3rd with times of 9.34 and 9.84 seconds respectively. After the girls’ first run, their sports trainer for the day shows them some techniques to help them run better. The girls run 50m a second time trying to shave off half a second from their previous time. And the girls succeed with Ripopo actually taking off about .6 second from her previous run. Good job, girls!
Next, the girls try to do a flip over a bar. On their first attempts, only Sayaka is able to flip over the bar. Nana completes it with her second attempt, much to her surprise.
Ripopo has her struggles getting over the bar. Using a little help from some thread, she finally manages to make it over the bar. A few more attempts to go over the bar without the thread prove unfruitful, but Ripopo tried her very best.
I actually really liked this episode of NMB48 After School. Seeing the girls run track and do some sports training was refreshing to see. We’ve had a few episodes involving sports but this time the girls actually got to move around and run around themselves. Well, until next week’s episode.
