Russian Figure Skater Meets Naoko Takeuchi After "Sailor Moon" Inspired Routine

Medvedeva performed routine in costume during this week's Dreams On Ice in Nagaoka, Japan

16-year old figure skater Evgenia Medvedeva has become a Japanese sensation ever since she began touring Japan in the last couple of years. From reciting Moonlight Densetsu in Japanese and running a Twitter account that proudly showcases her love of anime and manga, she has become a star in Japan, which only cemented itself further after this week's Dreams on Ice performance in Nagaoka, Japan, in which she performed a free skate routine in a dress inspired by the Sailor Senshi battle uniform worn by Usagi Tsukino.
