When nerd heroine Shoko Nakagawa isn't appearing in Pokémon movies, she's putting molted bug shells in her hair. And when she's not doing that, she's doing other things, like appearing in commercials!

Such as a series of spots for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, a game that she was extremely excited to get. Her excitement for the 3DS version of the game she loved as a kid apparently led to her appearance in these commercials.

The ads, which feature her talking, are not so exciting if you don't understand Japanese—she talks about various things regarding the game, such as the merits of exploring, the colorful characters, or her feelings on the "Song of Storms", etc.

What comes across is just how much she loves Ocarina of Time. It's like Nintendo simply turned a camera on her and let her go. In the second clip, Nakagawa, who is a talented manga artist, draws a picture of Link—something she often did growing up.

Her Link drawing is stunning, and if there was any doubt about her Zelda love, it should clear that right up.
