Naachan's Solo PV (Short Version) for the 2nd Single
Two-part article about ekiden races that was published on Melos a few days back, with Nanako and a prominent athlete of this discipline, Daichi Kamino, having an one-on-one talk together.
I'm absolutely unfamiliar with this kind of sport, but I gotta applaud Nanako for her dedication to this hobby. To be honest, when you are an idol this is not exactly a very marketable character to have, especially if you are a "watching specialist" as opposed to being a "running specialist", like the article introduced both of them. Sometimes this side of hers is a source of hilarity because of her way to rave on endlessly about it with the wrong people: Miharu and Ayanyan learned it the hard way when they dared to give her a telephone call for the New Year's greetings, while she was already in the middle of an ekiden rambling in her own Showroom. On the other hand, it's nice too see there are also times when staying true to yourself pays off in terms of outside jobs.
While on the topic of ekiden, yesterday was also Nanako's guest appearance on NHK's ekiden special (to add some context, quoting the program's description, today marks the start of the women's national ekiden marathon in Kyoto, while on the 21st the men's one will begin in Hiroshima). Here's a snippet of the variety show I found on Twitter: even from what little is shown, Nanako was clearly in her element as she reeled off facts and observations about the event's history. (*´∀｀)
