kind of thought I'd be getting a "mixed bag" page, with some decent
stuff and some crappy, but it turned out to be a better than I
expected. Graphically and layout-wise, it could still use some
work, but it's got potential, and some decent content to back
was part of why I wasn't too sure about this page. I liked the
idea for the layout, but the page is really long-scrolling, and
spaced very far apart. The links worked a little strangely, in
that I clicked on a blank spot on the page, only to be taken to
one of the sub-sections before I was ready. I think that's probably
part of the spacing problem. I think the directory could be placed
a lot closer together, because it would make for a shorter index
page, and it would still look orderly and unified.
pages have pretty basic information, mostly statistics and attacks
like a lot of other places. I liked the way the author gives her
thoughts about each senshi, because it's very personal and from
the heart. I also liked the idea of including short sound bites
of each senshi's voice, but I would suggest using more .wav files,
because the sound quality is much better than in .au.
enemies are organized into their respective groups, and there
is a short paragraph about each one. She refers to Pikurl as "Ptilol,"
and there is also a broken link that should lead to the second
page about the Dead Moon Circus. It says that it's only "partially
completed," but it would be so much better to make a simple "Coming
Soon" page, or just not link it at all until it's ready.
announcements, awards, etc. The page design is nice, even though
the top and side images didn't load adjacently when I viewed it.
My guess is that it was designed in 640 x 480.
is a rotating "shrine" page, about a different character. This
month it's Galaxia. I thought the design of the index was nicely
done image-wise. The Powers sub-section had some decent nformation.
I don't think I get the part at the end about Galaxia thinking
that "she was once 'trash' on a planet of 'trash'," but I'm no
expert on Galaxia, so I'll let you be the judge of that. Very
nice display of screen shots on her attacks! I haven't seen many
of these images before. A nice section focusing on Chaos. Nice
idea with the focus on her battle behaviors. Unfortunately, the
text on the "Good Galaxia" section didn't show up at all, because
the table tags weren't closed at the end of the page. In all of
these sections, she distinguishes between manga and anime, which
I liked. This Shrine section overall has a much more attractive
look than the other parts of the page so far.
is a section is devoted to the NA Dub, and includes separate info
and stats on the 5 "Scouts" the Dub has shown so far. I liked
the section on things that were censored from the Dub.
little "zine" the author makes, with some decent free backgrounds
and things. The section on Style Sheets is very different from
the usual Web Help stuff you can get at. I totally agree with
her on "Ten things that should NOT go into a web site."
Story So Far
is basically about things that led up to Sailormoon. I was happy
to see a separate section about Codename: Sailor V, but I wish
she had told more about the actual plot. There's some good info
about Naoko, and some things that I'd never heard before. It also
has her address, which I hear a lot of people have a hard time
personal editorial section. Nice layout here, and the article
is something that a lot of people would probably agree with.
Nice looking index page.
a whole lot of links, but she tells you about each one, which
is nice. Simple layout, but quick to load.
page is kind of mixed up overall. There were some "blah" items
like the moldy old statistics and attacks, but there were also
some really cute ideas that I hadn't seen before. The layouts
were also similar...some pages were well-designed and attractive,
but others were kind of boring. But none of the layouts are out-and-out
terrible or annoying. I think that this page would improve by
leaps and bounds if she could take some of her better designs
and use them throughout the page, instead of in just a few places.
This page is a good effort, and I think it's worth a visit. Once
it gets through its growing pains, I think it will be much better.
