Shoko Nakagawa to be a guest at Anime Expo in Los Angeles
Anime Expo, the largest anime convention in the United States, recently announced that it will invite Nakagawa to its July 3 to 6 convention in Los Angeles for her first overseas live performance. Shoko Nakagawa is best known to Pokemon fans as one of the hosts of Pokemon Sunday.

Nakagawa sang Sorairo Days on NHK’s Kohaku Uta Gassen (Red and White Song Contest) 2007 and has released four singles, two mini albums and one album. But she said she “still cannot imagine what I will do in Los Angeles”.

“I first thought I would sing just one song. But it turned out to be a 60-minute performance,” Nakagawa said. “I have not decided yet, but I want to sing my songs from other anime, including Dragon Ball and Rurouni Kenshin, since they will be familiar to people in the United States.”

“Of course, I want to do cosplay there, too,” said Nakagawa, who was appointed the “cosplay goodwill ambassador” in August at the World Cosplay Summit 2007, a gathering of costume play enthusiasts held in Nagoya.
