This was inevitable. Champion figure skater Evgenia Medvedeva previously proved that Sailor Moon cosplay works well with skating. Now, she’s going to star in a figure-skating show that will right wrong and triump over evil.


Called Sailor Moon Prism On Ice, the show will star Evgenia Medvedeva as Sailor Moon, Satoko Miyahara as Sailor Mercury, Mirai Nagasu as Sailor Mars, Alissa Czisny as Sailor Jupiter, Becky Bereswill as Sailor Venus and Andrew Poje as Tuxedo Mask.

It will run from June 5 to June 7 in Yokohama, Japan.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.


Aww she’s probably the first person I can think of when it comes to current figure skating, probably highlighted by her love for anime and kpop. She did that “Routine of Death” which seemed to be a killer. Have fun out there!

Hmm the only other figure skater I can think of currently skating is Nathan Chen. Gone are the days of “What would Brian Boitano do?”
