Shoko Nakagawa

Shoko Nakagawa, eine Über-Bloggerin aus Japan, die ihr Blog auch schon 70 mal am Tag aktualisierte und sich in vier Jahren eine Millarde Visits abgeholt hat, behängte sich vor vier Jahren mit den Überbleibseln sich häutender Zikaden und lösste damit 'ne kleinere Zikaden-Cosplay-Meme aus. Am Wochenende hat sie's wieder getan und ich hab' mich prompt wieder ein bisschen verknallt.

Shoko NakagawaIn anime set in the summer, you'll often hear a buzzing noise made by cicada insects in the background. One of Evangelion's clues that seasons and global ecology were totally out of wack is that the noise is constant throughout the series. The title of Higurashi - When They Cry also refers to the noise. These bugs emerge from the ground, leaving molted skins.

The remains are the kind of gross thing that fascinate children and apparently TV personality/voice actor/idol singer Shoko Nakagawa, aka Shokotan. That is, when she's not meeting anime/manga luminaries like Mazinger Z creator Go Nagai, theme song singer Ichirou Mizuki and lead voice Hiroya Ishimaru or sticking her cat's head in her mouth…

Shokotan sometimes likes to wear the discarded insect skins. In a blog post from this weekend, she revived the 2008 fashion non-trend.
