The Cherry Blossom Festival
http://www.strictlyshoujo.com/cardcaptor/
(8 stars)

Design and Layout:
Although the layout was nice and neat, I'd have to say that my biggest complaint about this site was the inconsistency of the pages. Granted, I figure she wanted to do a nice little theme for each section, but this was a bit overboard. At times, I wasn't even sure that I was still on the same site. You can pretty much see what I mean from looking at those pictures on the side. I think a layout that has an identifiable theme would be better than making each page look like a site in itself, unless of course, you're advertising each of these pages as sites on their own. But she wasn't because there was still the menu at the top that led to other pages of the site. However, I did think the individual style layouts were very nice, and color themed within themselves, so it was nice to look at.

Organization:
I found that the site was unbelievably well organized. Under each category, there were sub-categories making it easier to find specifically what I was looking around for. In particular, her "Kero-chan ni Omakase" section was even organized by season for the battle costumes, right along with a section for Kero's battle costumes. In addition, her character section was well-organized, listing characters as friends, family and guardians.

Advertising and Broken links:
No advertisements! And the only link problem I found was on the Clow card page--- the "goodies" link at the top takes you back to the same page. There was a another section that did that as well, but I forgot. Either way, it wasn't enough for me to mark it down. ^_^

Content:
Cosplay! There was actually a cosplay section on the site! And it went through a whole variety of costumes. The information was limited though for episodes and such because she's only seen up until episode 31. So not all of the Clow card pages are complete and not all of the battle costumes are done. So in that respect it couldn't be more complete for what she knows. There was literally tons of stuff to go through, from hand-made wallpapers to character bios.

Overall:
While there was a whole lot of stuff to go through there, there was still almost an equal amount of stuff that was in the works. While that does create a need for a repeat visit, it also can be discouraging. I mean, after all, how long am I going to have to wait to see the Yamazaki shrine finished (since currently there was nothing more than an opening page). There's always room for improvement.

This site receives a total of 8 stars! Showy and pretty, but still, there was stuff to want. With a little more work it could be great.
