Clow Legacy: [sakuracard.com]
Though this doesn't count for points, this basically gives
my first impression of the site before I tear it apart piece
by piece. Anyway, I figured I should do it for sites that I've
already reviewed. As far as Clow Legacy goes, as I look at it
now, there doesn't seem to be all that much changed... but I
could be wrong...
Design and Layout:
I think I've finally accepted the fact that the layout of the
average site is just not going to change. So Clow Legacy has
opted to remain with the same tried and true three column
layout. Yep. Nothing special here. Even the graphics aren't
all that complex. And overall, it's rather plain as far as the

They improved one of the initial things I complained about,
they now have a nice little section set up for their Black
Light Comic that doesn't occupy much space on the side-bar.
Also, their sections are done in a broader sense, like
"characters" as opposed to listing names one by one
on the side bar. Actually... this place is really
organized overall. Nice.
On the other hand, their
pop-ups are about to drive me crazy. I opened up the page, and
in the time it took me to walk to the kitchen to grab a cookie
and come back, there were 7 new add windows sitting on the
bottom of my screen! And Clow Legacy was the only site open on
my browser. I suggest that when you come to the site, you hit
the "STOP" button on the top of you browser menu so
it won't keep spawning off pop-up windows.

For Multimedia: In theory, they have a whole bunch of mp3's.
But when I went today, not a single one was working. Their
midis work... Their videos didn't. And oddly enough, their
video clips are the exact same ones that Sakura Online
posts. I don't know what the point of having a ton of
multimedia is if you can't keep it online.
As far as information goes,
they have quite a few episode summaries from the first season
in Japan. But you're still better off going some place like
Sakura Avenue or Cherry Blossoms. These episode summaries are
just...weird. And their image galleries for the most part
don't work. Or at least, the Sakura Card season "screencaps"
and the Clow Season "screencaps" didn't work. Which,
by the way, are not really screen caps. They're just scans.
Their main image gallery does work and has a total of 16
images. They have a little bar at the top, but once again, it
doesn't take you anywhere.
Lots and lots of things don't
work. They need to follow the "If it's not there don't
link it." Their battle items section is nice though, it's
even illustrated. What the page came down to still were a
bunch of links, but not a lot of content.

Well, Clow Legacy had been gone a while, claiming to be
improving their site. But really the only thing different is
the layout and now they have Japanese some episode summaries.
I don't see much improvement, and believe me, I looked.

That's 4 out of 10 stars. Umm... I almost feel
bad about this.
