Only in Japan could an anime themed figure skating routine work so well. That girl really sold it too, she clearly loves anime considering how enthused she looked doing the routine. And according to some cursory research, she broke a scoring record with her routine.

EDIT: If anyone watches it, does it look like she's singing while she's skating?

Is that the figure skater who did the Sailor Moon routine? If so, she's so lucky she got to meet Naoko Takeuchi and she got a signed drawing from her too. I'm so jealous.
