Russian World Champion figure skater Evgenia Medvedeva is a huge Sailor Moon fan. She shows us this by performing a Sailor Moon inspired skating routing in costume to the music of Moonlight Densetsu, the opening theme of the original Sailor Moon anime. Naoko Takeuchi, the creator of Sailor Moon, was so impressed by this routine that she met with Evgenia Medvedeva after a recent performance and gave her a signed Sailor Moon sketch. Watch a video which features some clips of that performance below.
To see just how much of an anime fan Evgenia really is check out her Instagram and Twitter feeds. It’s nice to see younger fans who weren’t around when the original Sailor Moon anime was out who are still getting into this great series.

I can’t tell if that fall in the video was intentional or not. That’s such a Sailor Moon thing to do, fall down while trying to be impressive! XD
Anyway, great routine. I’m glad even top athletes are able to indulge and show off their love of Sailor Moon. Really shows how much of an enduring effect the character has had on people over time.
Thanks for sharing! I love Sailor Moon and ice skating, so combining the two is awesome! And thanks for sharing that screenshot from the show. I had completely forgotten about that episode!
