Sakura Online: A place, a source and everything CCS!
http://www.cardcaptors.net/index.shtml
(2 stars)


Design and Layout:
Woo-hoo! Check out this one. Really. In the picture you see to the left, the site actually does look better that it would in real life because the first thing I encountered here was that the title and the sidebar do not line up. I made a few adjustments for them, cause I knew what they were struggling to do. Ummm..... but the color scheme is nice. I mean, it's not Christmas time (note the top image) but perhaps they believe in the whole "Christmas in July." Also, the side bar menu on the side is way way way to long. Heck, I even cropped it a bit for the picture but still, they have a bit to learn. And might I also add, there is also an uncanny amount of *.PNG images! Stop! Bad, bad!

Organization:
Well, conveniently, every link on their site is right on their side bar. Oooh. Great. Even to individual gallery pages. Man, I can only call that one thing: lazy. They're just too lazy to make the effort to have sections. Here's another thing: their little news blog is practically a diary! Can they at least stay on topic? It is after all a Card Captor Sakura/ Card Captors (I think) site, and yet, here's a review on the main page for the movie Tomb Raider. Guess what? No one really cares what you did with your weekend, Captor.

Advertising and Broken links:
Okay, so there's none of that annoying pop-up advertising here. I will give them the point. However, this place is chock full of broken links. Almost none of their images even work in their TCG gallery. And it's not a TCG you idiots! They are just TRADING CARDS!

Content:
Allow me to give you a sampling of the information available here:

"This is the back of the cover! See it is in 3D! ^_^ 
It even shows you some shots of the game ^_^ 
So now you have to believe that the game is real ^_^"


WTF?!? That is in reality, all they knew about it. No title, no anything. And the rest of their SITE reflects that trend perfectly. This is perhaps the emptiest site I have ever seen. And might I add, if this site suddenly develops content after my site opens, well then, we know what happened.

Overall:
After looking at this site I feel like I need to maim a small furry animal. Never have I seen a site that knew less about Card Captors or Card Captor Sakura than this one. There is NO information. And the kids think that the site is a diary. The final blow was looking in their "Site Tips" section and reading this:

1) Make sure that your site has a lot of information on what it is based on. For example a CCS site with just character bios is not complete. Work hard on the information, what visitors look for most. 

Wow. Apparently they can't even use their own advice. Then again, they probably stole that...
