32-year-old actress/singer/otaku idol Shoko Nakagawa, aka Shokotan, has been also well known for her talent as an illustrator. Her latest work on her official Twitter was a tribute art for Hiroyuki Eto's Mahojin Guru Guru/MAGICAL CIRCLE GURU-GURU gag manga, posted during the premiere of the first episode of its new TV anime adaptation last night.
She said, "It's been a long time! This might be the first art since those days! Guruguru! I traced and painted the manga cover arts with watercolors, then displayed them on the wall, maybe when I was about 10? It was such a dream-like anime for a kid who loved cats and Dragon Quest. So sweet memories..."
