Evgenia Medvedeva’s performance at the 2017 ISU World Team Trophy in Tokyo recreates the first episode of Sailor Moon

Evgenia Medvedeva's Sailor Moon Figure Skating Routine

Two time World champion Russian figure skater Evegnia Medvedeva has given us another great Sailor Moon themed performance! She originally did a Sailor Moon themed routine last year and she’s updated it to reflect many of the events of the first episode of Sailor Moon. This was done this past weekend at the 2017 ISU World Team Trophy in Tokyo. A fitting location for a Sailor Moon themed performance! The soundtrack used for her piece includes a number of audio clips from the first episode as Usagi sleeps in, rushes off to school, meets Luna and ultimately transforms into Sailor Moon. As with the last routine it includes the original version of Moonlight Densetsu by DALI. You can watch the full clip below.

She did quite well at the competition setting records for Short Program, Free Skate and Total Score. Evegnia Medvedeva is a huge anime and Sailor Moon fan as we continue to see with her fun performances.

  1. Wow! That’s amazing. I love it when people can take what they love and do an impassioned tribute to it through something they’re good at, like she did here.

    Speaking of ice skating, I recently did some research on ice skating for a short story I plan to write in the future (and yes, I did rewatch part of the episode where they visit an ice rink in Season 1). Apparently in an actual competition, Ms. Medvedeva (God, I hope I didn’t butcher that) wouldn’t be able to do a routine like that, because most competitions favor instrumental or choral pieces, rather than anything involving pop or anime culture. There’s indications that this attitude is softening a bit, but for the moment, anime tributes like this are reserved to less formal displays.

    Finally: Adam, I hear there’s a new Sailor Galaxia figurine coming out soon. Just letting you know in case you didn’t.
