Sanrio will open up a shop for a limited time selling merchandise of Cardcaptor Sakura characters posing with iconic Sanrio mascots. Shops will be available until various dates in Osaka, Tokyo, Miyagi, and Aichi. The PremiumShop is to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Cardcaptor Sakura anime.
The Sanrio Cardcaptor Sakura merchandise will become available from March 21, 2023. The websites for the various stores you can find them do not yet have pages for the PremiumShop as of the time of writing. It might be due to the time between now and when you will be able to purchase the items.
Here are the more precise dates and locations of each shop:
- Abeno, Osaka (Abeno Qs Mall): March 21, 2023 to April 20, 2023
- Harajuku, Tokyo (Laforet B1F): March 25, 2023 to April 20, 2023
- Nagoya, Aichi (Nagoya PARCO 3F): April 8, 2023 to April 20, 2023
- Sendai, Miyagi (EBeanS 2F in front of Sendai station): March 25, 2023 to April 23, 2023
Since the shops do not yet have pages, it is unclear what items will be available. However, we can see the art of the characters posing with the mascots. For this collaboration, only Sakura, Syaoran, Kero, and Spinel appear from Cardcaptor Sakura. In all of the art, Sakura wears outfits that match with the corresponding Sanrio characters. From Sanrio, we can see: Hello Kitty, My Melody, Kuromi, Cinnamoroll, Pochacco, Keroppi, and Pompompurin.
The Cardcaptor Sakura and Sanrio collaboration PremiumShop and merchandise will appear in Japan starting in late March 2023.
