Nakagawa has previously declared that the man of her dreams was Vegeta of Dragonball. The person who caught her heart was a "Space Pirate", a bad boy protagonist rarely seen in tokusastsu flicks.
And their cupid of love was one of her beloved feline friends. According to an insider, the two met each other at a gathering of cat-loving celebrities 2 years ago. The two grew closer to each other when Nakagawa saved a cat from being put down as Ozawa helped her find a new owner for the cat. Their relationship blossomed into a romantic one at the beginning of this year.
Nakagawa is a major cat-lover who takes care of 10 cats at her home and has even titled her autobiographical essay Neko no Ashiato (Footsteps of a Cat). Ozawa also revealed on his blog that he bought a cat-shaped piggy bank back in February and wrote, "I like dogs, but cats are cute too", seemingly having been influenced by Nakagawa.
Nakagawa has made a lot of romantic declarations these past 1 to 2 years, and said at her birthday concert in 2012 that: "I have never had any romantic relationships in the past 10 years, and I want to put an end to this situation". During the screening event of her movie Nuiguruma-Z in January, she also mentioned that she wants to "leave an offspring behind".
She once revealed a number of conditions that one would have to meet in order to become her boyfriend: 1) Loves cats, 2) Better than me at video games, 3) Has a beautiful kicking form, 4) can swing the nunchaku, 5) has old scars or fresh wounds. It's unknown if Ozawa fulfills conditions 2~4 but based on his role as "Captain Marvelous", there's a possibility that he also meets conditions 3~5.
Following her first leading role in the movie Nuiguruma-Z, Nakagawa is currently seen in NHK's Gunshi Kanbee. She also has an upcoming movie TOKYO TRIBE which will be shown in August, and has been busy as of late with her acting career. She also has an upcoming birthday concert on May 4 and 5 at the Maihama Ampitheater. People will be anticipating how she will announce her relationship at this event. Ozawa on the other hand, has been cast for the leading role in the upcoming movie Akira No.2, which is slated for an autumn release.
People definitely weigh in the looks at 90%
I thought I saw the conditions that she set for what she wants in a partner, and I think she would still go out with the man even if he isn't an ikemen as long as he fulfills those conditions.
The conditions Shoko Nakagawa has set for her partner
- Age doesn't matter
- Someone she can respect
- Someone with broad knowledge like Goro Yamada
- Poor people are welcome
- Someone who will never cheat on her
- Any occupation
- He should be the boss who sets regulations and limitations
- Someone who likes games↑And suddenly this bomb is dropped on all of us after reading this, that's why I understand why you guys are shocked. I'm assuming that most guys who aren't connected to her thought that "Maybe I have a chance with her too" wwwww
This person is also one of those people who cater to the virgins so scandals will be fatal for her career
Hah, so she's actually one of the people who have real lives
In the end, they go with ikemens. This is how women are.
I've got a feeling that otaku-like women have higher standards and prefer people who look good.
Is this for real, Shokotamu...
So it seems that there are quite a number of people who are shocked by this.
Was Shokotan that popular?
Shokotan's lost her virginity.
I'm shocked, I wanna die.
Sho Shokotan isn't a virgin (´；ω；｀)
"I was just acting like a geek shut-in"
I'm depressed, I wanna die
This is actually how an anime wota is, you know?
Where'd you get the wrong idea from? wwwwwwww
The screams that you guys make feel so pleasant w
LOL, here we have guys who kept saying "Shokotan's a virgin! Shokotan's a loner!" www
I'm very sorry for being a Komi-ota... Haaa~
But this isn't her "first"
Weren't there already rumors linking Shokotan with other personalities before?
She was rumored with Ibuki-san, disciple of Emiri Henmi's husband Hibiki-san
She was also rumored with Yuma Ishigaki, right?
She's got a bad taste in men.
It's not her first. She was previously rumored to be going out with Jouji Shibue who played Kamen Rider Ibuki.
All the men rumored with Shokotan are these unknown, iffy guys who came from tokusatsu flicks
She loves them ikemens, huh
I'm surprised that Shokotan has wotas after seeing this thread.
She's already been rumored with a bunch of men before, right?
So where's the picture?
Gokaiger was a lot of fun.
Shokotan's approaching 30. Hurry up and get married.
I find it surprising that she's with a younger man
Women who have high pride tend to go for younger men
Gokai Red was actually that old?
I thought he was just an oniichan who was just around 20.
Shokotan's already 28 w
I'm hoping that he's a nice guy w
Shokotan is a bit queer so I was actually worried about her.
Looks like she'll be able to get married normally.
Shokotan isn't exactly that young anymore so you guys should be happy for her w
She's been saying for a couple of years now that she wants to be in a romantic relationship.
Good for her that she's found a partner.
This guy is too much of an ikemen for a kimo-wota girl like Shokotan
Now she won't be able to use her "bocchi" (loner) image anymore
So she's a person who goes for red, huh? I always thought that she was the type who'd fancy blue or black.
The guys who play "red" in these sentai flicks more often than not fail to succeed.
With whom would you guys have forgiven her?
If possible, I wanted Shokotan to end up with guys like these ww
So people who like 2D drawings eventually end up with hosts, huh w
The guy who used to be a host?
He must've been a host who slept with a lot with the higher ups, seeing how he became the lead immediately after his debut.
Why, if it isn't Marvelous-san who's been rumored to be a DV host
"Ryota Ozawa who played the role of Red in the Tokusatsu hero flick Gokaiger used to be a host in Kabukicho. He is currently cohabiting with 17-year-old talent Serina Yagi, but this girl has a large number of bruises on her body, and has admitted that Ozawa has been beating her up."
She's just been caught by a weirdo...
The guy's a DQN who was a former host and dated a minor...
So Ozawa dumped his non-celebrity girlfriend?... To think that he was being supported by her.
Gokai Red was also rumored with Pink.
I think they also had a picture together.
Damn you Nakagawa.
How dare you get my Marvel-chan.
Gokai Red's probably the right guy, I guess.
Will this finally make Shokotan a bit more human?
She'll be turning 29 in a few days, just forgive her already
Spring has finally arrived for Shokotan━━━━━━(ﾟ∀ﾟ)━━━━━━ !!!!!
Is this officially approved by her agency?
(´・ω・`) Now this is a shocker.
So Gokai Red gets to have that smiling face all for himself?
This is just like Shokotan.
Going out with an ex-tokusatsu actor.
