Her {{otaku}} status has no bounds, with particular reverence to Creator/BruceLee, ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', and ''Franchise/SuperSentai'', among many others. While she was originally represented by Creator/JackieChan's talent agency in Japan, she thought he wasn't a nice man because he was sometimes the villain in Bruce Lee movies. Aside from getting to interview Creator/HirohikoAraki and get him to draw what he perceived to be a possible child between herself and Jotaro Kujo, she once did a [=JoJo=] pose on stage during one of her concerts and managed to break her tailbone. She had reportedly auditioned to be the Pink Ranger in multiple Super Sentai series due to her love of Yuri / Time Pink in ''Series/MiraiSentaiTimeranger'', and it was Yuri's actress Mika Katsumura who actually inspired her to start acting rather than her late father. She even thinks Shigeki Hosokawa of ''Series/KamenRiderHibiki'' (among other shows) fame is the ideal man.

Nakagawa first began her career in 2001, but her initial fame began with her hosting of ''Series/PokemonSunday'' (which she still remains on) and hit her big break in music after she was chosen to sing the opening theme of ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' in 2007, which was her first single to reach the top of the charts.

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Later in life, she discovered that the name she had been using her whole life was not actually her legal name. After her mother's chosen name of "''Shōko''" (薔子) was rejected by the Japanese government because the first kanji wasn't allowed to be used in names, her aunt wrote the name in the family registry in hiragana instead but wrote the ''yo'' too big, so instead of her legal name being "''Shōko''" (しょうこ) it ended up being "''Shiyōko''" (しようこ). Professionally, she's written her name as "''Shōko'' (翔子), but she usually just goes by "''Shokotan''" (しょこたん).
