About Me

Shoko Nakagawa

Artist / Japan

She made her debut to the artist circle in 2002 when she was elected as “Miss Weekly Shonen Magazine.” She is affectionately called by her nickname Shokotan. She is currently engaged in a wide range of activities including singing, program MCing, voice acting, acting, and producing the fashion brand mmts.

She held her first Asia tour in 2012, the 10th anniversary of her debut. Last year, she performed at Rocking Japan Fes and Animelo Summer Live and held a solo concert in Hong Kong as well, gathering popularity regardless of genre or country.

Her single “Sakasama Sekai / Once Upon a Time -Kibou no Uta-” (the opening theme of the Nintendo 3DS game “Puzzle & Dragons Z” / ending theme of the overseas drama “Once Upon a Time” by BS Premium and Disney) released on Dec. 11, 2013 and reached 4th on the Oricon daily chart.

On April 2, 2014, she released “9lives,” her first album in nearly four years. Her autobiographic essay “Neko no Ashiato (Footprints of a Cat)” is currently sold by Magazine House. A compilation of cat-related novels selected by Shokotan herself was also recently released by Shinchosha under the title “Nyanthology.”

She is also active as an actress and stars in the NHK Taiga drama “Gunshi Kanbei.” She also plays a major role in “Gothic Lolita Battle Bear” and “Tokyo Tribe” (directed by Sion Sono, Aug. 30 release).
