To commemorate the release of her new album tomorrow, Shoko Nakagawa is hosting a very special episode of her regular Nico Nico Live broadcast that will run for 24 hours long.

The broadcast will begin August 15, 12-midnight JST (GMT+0900) – which is August 14, 11PM Singapore time (GMT+0800) – all the way till the same time the following day.

The stream is entitled:
Shoko-tan’s Nico-user Live (in Harajuku): Shoko Nakagawa tries to sell her new mini-album nsum~ Exclusive 23-hour TV – You can save Nakagawa with your purchase of a copy
(しょこたんのユーザー生(原宿)nsum~中川翔子が売ってみた!~ 独り24時間テレビ -あなたの一枚が中川を救う-) .

And it will include a music video showcase of past Shoko Nakagawa songs, a live feed of various fans’ meet-and-greet handshake sessions throughout the day, as well as talk sessions with invited guests Hyadain (ヒャダイン), Hachiouji-P (八王子P), Merochin (めろちん), kz(livetune), sasakure.UK, and Hyakka Ryoran (百花繚乱).



During the broadcast Shoko-tan will somehow attempt to sell 3,000 copies of her newly released mini-album from her live location (it’s not stated how fans are supposed to buy a copy that will count towards this tally; probably only the copies sold at the Harajuku location will count).

Even if you can’t tune in to the the full 24-hour broadcast, at least try to tune in near the end to find out if Shoko-tan manages to accomplish her goal or not.

Shoko Nakagawa’s new mini-album, nsum~Nakagawa Shoko ga Utatte Mita! comes out tomorrow, August 15.
