Clow Legacy- unlock the mysteries...
http://www.sakuracard.com
(3 stars)

Design and Layout:
*Ahem* .PNG images? Not a way to start my day. Once I look past that though, there really aren't that many more images on the layout, and at least the images were split up so it didn't take nearly as long to load (or at least I wasn't as bothered by it. But when the whole picture finally does come together, it's lovely. And thanks to the wonders of SSI, the site's colors work together fabulously. Though I think there should be some pink accents out and about to complement the top image graphic. Other than that, the layout is pretty much the same as most of the other "big anime" sites out there.

Organization:
Well, there's a link to each individual page of the fan-fiction comic on every single page, which just clutters the sidebars. Not to mention "Sakura Avalon" and a few others have their own place on the side-bar as well. Ever thought that maybe people can find what they're looking for under a section called "CHARACTERS?" But it is easy to navigate, I'll grant them that.

Advertising and Broken links:
Pop-ups. Grrr.... but they don't appear on the main page. In fact, they only appear on a few random select pages, which is weird, and yet at the same time tolerable. So I won't mark down for that. Also, as far as I can tell, all the links work, although there are crossed off sections on the side-bar. If a section isn't finished, don't list it.

Content:
Hmmm.... this is a little ironic, but, this site sells practically all the episodes from the CCS series and yet they barely have any episode summaries. I guess that is the ultimate example of laziness, because apparently they don't even want to watch the episodes they're selling you. And by the way, selling fansubs is I-L-L-E-G-A-L.

Also, in their Japanese screenshots gallery, half of the images are from Rath's Image Gallery. But... I point out again, that they are selling episodes on VCD. That means, they can take their own screenshots. But fortunately, they credit their source with a link.

Hmmm... and their First Movie summary sounds oddly familiar... And it definitely doesn't reflect the writing on the rest of the site, which makes me wonder about it's origins... Okay.... this is a little while later, but I found it! The movie summary was taken from Hitoshi Doi's Cardcaptor Sakura Page. And their second movie summary is taken from this site Neko-Han-Ten Homepage
. They are the original writers of that stolen summary. And I won't even mention their Japanese glossary *cough* stolen *cough* Plagiarism is bad. I thought everyone knew that...

Overall:
The webmaster of this site strikes me as unethical. They're perfectly willing to take things from other peoples site and not even credit them. It's wrong! How long will it take for you guys to get it through your heads?! Originality gives me something to look forward to, so why rip off a site that can easily be found by the avid surfer?!

For a total of 3 out of 10 stars. Theft is bad!

And now for my experiment. How many sites will she be on?
