The 25th anniversary celebration is underway for the Cardcaptor Sakura anime, based on the manga by CLAMP. The TV anime first kicked off its broadcast in Japan on April 7, 1998, and the official accounts are celebrating with an anniversary project that includes a new visual, goods and more on the way.
First up, the anniversary visual itself:

Among the goods revealed so far are items featuring the visual and minifigures that mix it up with Sanrio characters.
There’s also a collaboration room in the works for EJ Anime Hotel in Tokorozawa Sakura Town, Saitama.
The Cardcaptor Sakura café that was previously open in Tokyo for a limited time last year will be making its way to Nagoya Parco in Aichi and Shinsaibashi Parco in Osaka.
The official account promises more announcements in the future, so stay tuned to see what else comes of the anniversary.
