odds & ends

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - Sun Trap [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - *sparkles madly* Okay, I oscillate back and forth between YorihisaxTenma and TenmaxAkane, and this site is one of the reasons I keep coming back to TenmaxAkane, because I really do just absolutely love the pairing and it's wonderful to see pretty, softly colored, nice fanart for them. The colors are those soft oranges and pinks that are just perfect for this pairing, the lines and details of the illustrations nice, and the poses wonderfully heart-warming. The whole site just made me smile to see it. (Mostly Tenma/Akane and Katsuzane/Karin.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - Ahh, such cute art! I don't mean in a cutesy way, but just that the art makes me smile to see it, the characters are pretty and cute, and there's a nice selection in the main gallery and in the gifts gallery. Very, very solid art style, very nice for the series (and I really like the design of the main page), plus! Plus! Some TenmaxAkane and KatsuzanexKarin! *sparkles muchly* (Pretty much all Hachiyou/Akane, some Katsuzane/Karin.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - All right, I freely admit that I am a huge Tenma x Akane fangirl, I just adore the pairing, and was immediately attracted to it from the moment I watched the OAVs. So to come upon a site that has this wonderfully long comic (that looks like it could be a doujin) that's both gorgeous and fitting with the tone of the couple, I was thrilled. I really was just quite fond of the way the artist drew the characters, they were very pretty, and she has a strong sense for details/the layout. Plus! So many comics and not just of Tenma and Akane. *sparkles* (Some Tenma/Akane.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - Y's Factory [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I admit, I really sat on the fence over this site for awhile because the proportions are shakey and the colors are very bright, but... you know what? This journal/site is about stuff I enjoyed and this site gave me my Katsuzane/Karin fix and that makes me happy. Especially when a lot of the illustrations are just a little bit ecchi. <3 (And some hentai if you know where to look for it.) The site isn't going to be for everyone and, hell, I wasn't sure it was going to be for me, either, but... I'm weak against my favorite pairings and there were a couple of really nice Hisui illustrations on the site or the occasional really nice Katsuzane or Yasuaki and Yasutsugu together or just whatever. I had fun. <3 (Some Katsuzane/Karin, some other/Karin.)

- Final Fantasy VIII/Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - Ryu's Works [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Have I been to this site before? Man, I really gotta start keeping better track. Though, if nothing else, I don't see the site listed in my Squall/Rinoa section, so I'm going to assume that part is new at least. The HaruToki art is really lovely, the details and sharpness of the images is fantastic. It's probably the best stuff on the site. And yet... somehow it's the Squall/Rinoa art that made me go fluttery the most. Stuff like them leaning on each other or Squall wrapping her up in a scarf or even just one or both of them looking hot by themselves. That's the kind of thing that makes me all dippy!happy!fangirl, the kind of thing I revel in. The art's not perfect, but it gets at the point of the characters, the spirit of them that I love. That's far more important to me most days. ♥ (Squall/Rinoa, Kurou/Nozomi.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - *sigh* I blame Saiunkoku for putting me in the mood for fantasy stuff and for frequently having Haruka links on their sites, which sends me into this spiral where I look for Harutoki links. And, of course, it took me all of five seconds to fall for Kurou/Nozomi, since I have a great weakness for the SekiTomo characters. Which means this site was totally right up my alley, with it's pretty almost-sketch art early on that quickly evolves into something just... well, beautiful. And, man, Kurou's hair is totally, totally hot and this artist gets that. ♥ There's one where they're walking along in modern day clothes (and Kurou's carrying Nozomi's purse, which is just ♥) and his hair is just... yum. :9 The site totally put me in a fangirly mood now and I'm going to go flail for awhile longer that these games have never been properly translated into English. Whyyyyyyy. (Kurou/Nozomi, some Masaomi/Kurou.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - Soda Rain [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - While I came here for the Kurou/Nozomi, I stayed for everything the artist had to offer because, holy crap, that's some really pretty art. There's just... so much detail in her images and she's got that game-cg style down (yet with a hint of shoujo, which is totally appropriate <3), in both the colors/lines and in the poses of the characters. And, again, the characters' hair is just so pretty, the way it flows in the wind or shines in the moonlight with this artist's hand. ....and did I mention her Kurou is seriously hot? I mean, all of her characters are, but there are certain images of Kurou that completely knocked my socks off with how gorgeous he was. (Kurou/Nozomi mostly, but a lot of Everyone/Nozomi het.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - ARCADIA [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I'm fairly certain I've been to this site before, since the FFX art looks vaguely familiar, but I may have skipped over the Harutoki fanart last time since I wasn't in the mood. And now that I am in the mood, this was a very nice Kurou/Nozomi fansite. It's not always perfect, but the artist pays a lot of attention to their clothes and hair, which is a big draw for this series in the first place, I suspect. ^_~ Plus, I love that they're often holding hands or leaning against each other or gently touching each other somehow because it totally gets at the romantic in me, which is often times what I'm really looking for with Harutoki fanart. (Kurou/Nozomi.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Yet another site that doesn't have a lot of art, but what's here is just so damn pretty that I can't help it. And I swear I don't go looking for Kurou/Nozomi all the time, I actually came here from a Saiunkoku site looking for that series and just happened to notice that there was Haruka3 art and thought I'd give it a look. Then I stumbled on some beautiful, lush illustrations and some really pretty, almost delicately lined sketches and... yeah, I was gone. Because, man, this artist draws Kurou's hair all pretty like it should be. <3 (Kurou/Nozomi.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - Chica [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I feel like maybe I've recommended this site before. But I don't see it on my recs list, so if it's a re-rec... well, that happens sometimes! And I really do like this site, I took to it almost immediately, with the very lovely watercolor-esque illustrations of Kurou and Nozomi. They're very warm, sweet images, very adorable and make me just want to coo at how warm-hearted everything is in her color images. Her b&w images aren't as common, but looking at them was a treat because you could see how talented the artist really was--there's one of Kurou/Nozomi where they're lying back together, their hair spilling out around them and all this gorgeous detail on their clothes, it's one of my very favorites from the site. ♥ (Mostly Kurou/Nozomi, a smidge of gen, and a little other/Nozomi het.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - milca [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - There's some really pretty art here, very light and airy pastel colors a lot of times which works for the Harutoki series really well. Plus, the artist draws a really cute Nozomi The further I got into the gallery, the more detail there was on the characters' clothes and in their hair, there's a page of Kurou/Nozomi where their clothes especially just look gorgeous. It was a nice little site to stumble over almost by accident. ♥ (Some Kurou/Nozomi, some Isato/Karin, some other het, some gen.)
