Biography

Tokyo, Japan (2006 – present)

Shōko Nakagawa (中川翔子, Nakagawa Shōko, born May 5, 1985, in Tokyo as Shiyoko Nakagawa (中川しようこ, Nakagawa Shiyōko)) also known as Shokotan (to fans) is a Japanese idol and multi-talented celebrity (an actress, seiyu (voice actor), illustrator, singer and blogger). She is the daughter of 中川勝彦, a celebrity in Japan in the 1980s.

In July 2006, she released her debut single, “Brilliant Dream”. It entered the Oricon chart at number 29, with initial sales of 6,313 copies. Shokotan performed at Anime Expo 2008 at the Los Angeles Convention Center from July 3 till July 6. She is also known for loving cosplay, and buys up many clothes at auction, particularly costumes for Neon Genesis Evangelion, the Final Fantasy series and Sailor Moon. She is known for liking manga and anime, and also enjoys watching professional boxing.

Her official blog, Shokotan * Blog, opened in 2004, and by April 2006 it had received a total of 100 million hits. On February 2, 2008, the daily Japanese newspaper Mainichi Shimbun reported that her blog had been accessed 1 billion times. As one might expect from her personality, there are very many otaku-style entries, and she updates it extremely regularly, as she admitted in an interview, because she uses it as a kind of notepad. In the month of April 2005, there were 600 updates, and on January 28, 2006 there were 70 updates, a record number for a single day. It is likely that she holds the record for the greatest number of blog updates by an idol.
