That's rude. Shoko Nakagawa is more than a nerd heroine who puts her cats' heads in her mouth. She also sniffs their butts.
Where to start? Shoko Nakagawa is a singer and Japanese celebrity, who hosts kiddy show Pokémon Sunday, among a bajillion other things. She voiced the new Pocket Monster character Giza Mimi Pichu ("Notch-Eared Pichu") and also sung the anime's ending theme song.
She also does modeling and appears on television and in commercials.
Besides releasing a best selling book version of her wildly popular blog, she also has worn an embarrassing bean hat, appeared at an Xbox 360 Ninety-Nine Nights game launch event and then years later decided she wanted an Xbox 360 of her own. (She she proceeded to not to play her Xbox very much and gave away her games.) What a life!
Japanese publisher Kodansha will be launching "Shoko Nakagawa's Story" manga in its Nakayoshi girls' comic. While Nakagawa is a talented manga artist in her own right, it will be drawn by Asumi Hara and most likely not focus on the more trivial matters in her life (we have that covered thankyouverymuch), but the far more serious ones: Grade-school bullying and the death of her father. Nakagawa's father, a Japanese actor and singer, sadly passed away when she was 9 years-old.
For all the adversities in her life, Nakagawa continues to show spirit, humor and geekiness. No wonder Japan wants to go on adventures with her.
