Evgenia Medvedeva, a Russian figure skater, is a huge fan of anime, and she’s not afraid to let it show in her skating competitions.

Last year Medvedeva delighted Sailor Moon fans with a routine dedicated to the anime heroine, complete with a Sailor Moon costume and song from the beloved series. Now Medvedeva Moon is back for the World Team Trophy in Toyko.

Halfway through her routine she even picked up a Luna plushie from the judges’ table and danced around with it for a bit.

Though her love for Sailor Moon is obvious, it’s not Medvedeva’s only anime crush. You probably could have guessed she also loves the hit skating anime Yuri on Ice (because really, who doesn’t). 


We can’t wait to see what anime-inspired routine she comes up with next.
