Shokotan Debuts US Web Series

Yay for cross-cultural collaborative kookiness catalyzed by online media. Two years ago, Japanese blog queen Shoko Nakagawa created the oddball character Sukashi Kashipanman, a parody of costumed Japanese superheroes. After flourishing as a small anime/manga/game franchise in Japan, Shokotan’s creation crosses the Pacific as an American live-action Web series, Go Sukashi! Picture a wannabe Power Ranger on crack.

The series is produced by American artist Doug TenNapel, famous for creating the kooky video game character Earthworm Jim. His creative participation no doubt compounds the insanity.

    I think it helps the fact that Shoko-tan is both gorgeous, downright good with her costumes, with the cosplaying itself and her quirkiness. 😀
