It’s no secret that Russian figure skater Evgenia Medvedeva loves everything anime. She constantly tweets about anime and particularly loves Sailor Moon. So it should come as no surprise that she performed a Sailor Moon-themed song during her free skate at a recent skating event.
She decided to combine both her passions at the 2017 ISU World Team Trophy event and you can sense how much fun she’s having. Performing a flawless Sailor Moon figure skating routine, she truly brings Sailor Moon to life. She even utters the heroine’s catchphrases in Japanese throughout her performance.
She performed to the song “Moonlight Densetsu,” which means “Legend of the Moon” and it’s exactly what you would expect from a Sailor Moon song! Medvedeva captured the hearts of anime fans around the world with her beautiful skating. As she glided across the ice, images from Sailor Moon flashed on the screen behind her. Fans on Twitter were loving Medvedeva’s performance. They loved it so much that many suggested she should have a Sailor Moon-themed routine for the entire competition.
