Shokotan has transformed into Sailor Moon! Her legs are longer via the Moon Prism Power!?

Shoko Nakagawa, also known as Shokotan, has presented a cosplay of herself as Sailor Moon on Twitter.
"I made my legs longer using the Moon Prism Power," she says, her fans surprised by her appearance. "What an amazing power!" There was a response of, "Please, somehow do my legs too!"

Shoko Nakagawa made her entry dressed as Sailor Moon on the first day of her "Avarice party" fan club event.

On the 5th September, the moment she made her cosplay public on her "Shoko Nakagawa@Gizapink! Avarice Party(shoko55mmts)" Twitter feed, she received praising messages from her followers such as "Shokotan! Giza-cute!〜♪ It really suits you...!"

Messages are also arriving from the event participants such as "The moment I saw the cosplay I almost cried! The girl near to me was crying! LOL! She's that much a heroin of our youth!"

It wasn't just that. Furthermore, using the ocean as a backdrop, she showed off her transformed appearance with a before and after pic, saying,"I made my legs longer using the Moon Prism Power." Actually, she explained, "I used a Moon Healing Escalation app to make my legs longer."

"Is this the yearned for ideal body?"

"No bad feelings here!"

Meanwhile from her receiving fans, there were opinions like, "I prefer them short LOL!" and "I agree! Shoko should just be like herself!"

Shokotan completely changed into the beloved Sailor Moon this time. So far, apart from the fact that she has herself acknowledged her short legs, she seems to have managed to make her desire to have longer legs a reality using the app. Nevertheless, it's a level of perfection that's completely incomprehensible without an explanation. We were surprised by the app, that by no means falls to the "Moon Prism Power."

Only 59 Days!

Everyoooone! Nice to meet you! I'm Bulma.
Of course, you know about me already!
I'm the young lady of the Capsule Corporation and Vegeta's wife, Bulma!

By the way, it appears that today is 59 days before the public release of the movie "Dragon Ball Z: The Resurrection of F".....Apparently.

That's right! That is to say, it's the 59 days before* memorial day!
Because of this, we're spanning over the 59 days with a daily countdown until the public film release!

Everyone, don't forget to check!

The navigator is yours truly!

As I will also be introducing things such as various movie highlights and staff and cast comments, don't miss it!

*Translator's note: I imagine that the reason that 59 days is significant here (as opposed to any other date they could have started counting down from) is because ごくうにちまえ (59日前 meaning 59 days before) has the word ごくう at the start of it, ごくう being the name of the lead character in Dragon Ball Z. Groan.


あと59日!
