Yesterday, we wrote about a Ghostbusters routine happening at the World Figure Skating Championship in Saitama, Japan. Turns out the geekiness was not limited to just Italy, as Japan’s Keiji Tanaka broke out his Stand and skated a dynamic routine based on anime hit “JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure”.
Check out the video below:
Tanaka dressed as Jōsuke Higashikata and performed to “Diamond Is Unbreakable” by M.Fukuda for this exhibition routine.
Tanaka is the 2016 NHK Trophy bronze medalist, 2017 Winter Universiade silver medalist, 2011 World Junior silver medalist, and a two-time Japanese national silver medalist
He ranked #14 in the Men’s competition during the WFSC 2019, with a score of 238.40.
Anime has been a big hit with many pro figure skaters, and is not just limited to the WFSC. In 2016, an ice skating routine based around Cowboy Bebop occured, and just last year there was a Sailor Moon routine.
