- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - It took me a minute or two to find both Reborn! galleries, but it was totally worth it because I think the comics are Lambo/I-Pin-friendly at the very least? And I don't mind Reborn/Lambo (when they're older, of course), but part of me kind of pines over the idea of Lambo/I-Pin because they would be so, so cute and the comics were totally adorable, even if there weren't a lot of them. With the regular gallery, it was mostly just gen art and there wasn't much more of it, but enough to get me to be able to justify a rec because it's really pretty stuff and the colors are beautiful. There's a gorgeous one of TYL!I-Pin and Hibari and a beautiful one of Xanxus and a seriously hot oekaki of the Reborn! girls on the log pages. Totally a great site, I thought. (....maybe some Lambo/I-Pin, but it's mostly a gen site.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is neither my usual preferred style or my preferred pairing, but... well, I'm weak to occasional really hot Hibari fanart. I think I officially caved right around the time I was looking at Hibari pulling off the cat mask (I think it's a cat? maybe a fox?) and his glance was all slanted and dangerous and I thought it was a really pretty image. The Yamamoto/Hibari illustration not much further into the gallery, where they're a little older and wearing suits isn't exactly bad either. Mmm. There's also a damn fine one of Yamamoto with a really big ass gun. And it's illustrations like those that won me over with the site and made me think it was totally worth the effort of sifting through the whole gallery. It's not going to be for everyone, but I would think there would at least be one or two illustrations any given person might like. (Yamamoto/Hibari, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is another site that I tried to resist, that I waffled back and forth on a lot, until I finally gave in on because I was too delighted by the artist's adorable Kyouko fanart to resist. The Ryouhei/Hibari stuff is very cute and the comics are solidly done (though, I suspect they won't appeal to those who aren't already fond towards the idea of the pairing) and I admit that I started skimming until I got to one of the girls or some interesting Hibari art. The artist is very good, very solid, but for me her Bianchi or Kyouko art shines the most. The Hibari/Kyouko art is kind of totally adorable and she also has Dino/Bianchi fanart, which is another pairing I never thought I would see, but it's cute and pretty enough that I'm charmed into liking this artist's work. (Ryouhei/Hibari, some Hibari/Kyouko, maybe some Ryouhei/Hibari/Kyouko?, some Dino/Bianchi, some gen.)


- Kateyou Hitman Reborn! - *m s c [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - It's rare that I'll go to a site and find Dino more interesting than Hibari, but the artist here draws him really quite well. Between that and the oekaki illustrations that are totally messy and scribbly but still manage to somehow be really kind of hot, I enjoyed the site a lot. There's not a ton of art here, but just enough that I could justify a rec, I think. There's a sense of violence and intensity to the art that matches up well with the characters, I enjoyed this site. (Dino/Hibari, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN!/Gintama - graycells [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I hesitated a little bit with this site, I wasn't quite sure it was to my taste, but I definitely wanted to keep going because I liked the artist's sharp, clean b&w style. And there were a lot of characters I thought she did really well, her Dino is very nice and I like her Squalo a lot. But it wasn't until getting to the one of Dino giving a kidlet!Hibari a ride on his shoulders that I officially fell for the site, because it was just too adorable to resist. Then she followed it up with one of Hibari with little kidlet!Dino and I was just... utterly charmed. I sometimes have a bit of trouble telling who's supposed to be whom, but when the artist is on, I love the art a lot, so I don't mind so much. The one of Dino and Hibari touching foreheads (where Hibari looks like some combination of bored and wtf and it's nice) is worth the site alone, her Dino is fantastic. Her Gintama fanart is much the same, though, I think I love her Hijikata/Okita even more, such pretty and sharp b&w lines for them. And when she uses color, it's really nicely done. ♥ (Some Dino/Hibari, some gen for Reborn! and some Hijikata/Okita, some gen for Gintama.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN!/Fullmetal Alchemist - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I tried very hard to resist this site, it doesn't have a lot of art and it's mostly oekaki-style illustrations that are here, but... the Roy/Ed was so adorable (or hilarious, the one of Ed practically strangling Roy or the figuring of Ed taking a bath was so ridiculously hilarious ♥) and then the Reborn! section had a cute Kyouko illustration, an adorable Lambo/I-Pin oekaki, and then had Dino/Hibari oekaki. a sdflkajslkjas, I'm weak, okay? There's not a lot of art here and it might not necessarily be for everyone, but I wound up kind of adoring the hell out of this site. It's just cute and fun and made me happy. ♥ (Some Roy/Ed, a smidge of Dino/Hibari, a lot of gen for both series.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - The loose, not quite messy, sketch illustration with a lighter use of colors really works for me on this site. Her characters look so very hot and I love the way their bodies and movements look and I love the way she draws Dino's tattoos and her Hibari is so hot. There's not a whole ton of art here, which makes me sad because I really like this artist a lot. Her b&w stuff is as hot as her colored art, which I don't see all that often, I think both work almost equally well. (I do like the color art a smidge better, but that's only because most people do like color over simple b&w, not because they're any better done.) Her Yamamoto is also very nice and this was just a cool little site. (Some Dino/Hibari, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I... I kind of knew that I was going to be caving on this site when I came across the oekaki of Hibari with a purple dying will flame on his head (which I'd never seen before and is kind of great), but it was official when I was going through the oekaki board and there was this utterly adorable series of chibis with Hibari raking at some leaves on the ground, while Ryouhei comes along curiously, wondering what he's doing and then he gets a totally great idea and dumbs a whole bagful of raked up leaves over Hibari's head. I had to laugh. But the oekaki really is fun here, sometimes totally cute chibis, sometimes pretty little sketches of the characters. A fun way to spend half an hour or so. <3 (Some Dino/Hibari, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - WARLOCK [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Again, there's not a whole lot of fanart on this site, but... well, when the second illustration I saw was one of Dino picking Hibari up and practically carrying him off over his shoulder and Hibari had this hilarious WTF look on his face (right before he started biting, I like to believe), I had to laugh. Kind of a lot. And the rest of the site is nice, even the oekaki (which are a little small for my usual taste, but still nice) and sketches are interesting to look at. There's even a totally adorable Bianchi+Gokudera sketch and Gokudera in glasses! I was pleased. ♥ (Some Dino/Hibari, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - LILIUM [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Sometimes I wonder if I should be recommending sites that have only a dozen or so images on them... but, then, sometimes people rec a single piece of art, so I figure I'm safe. ^_~ Plus, the art is so pretty here, the artist does these really pretty things with her art, the colors are so rich and the illustrations often look fully detailed and they might not impress everyone, but I enjoyed them a lot. Plus! There are chibis! Chibis with the same almost glowing, pretty colors! I really liked this site. ♥ (No warnings/pairings.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Not all of the illustrations on this site are perfect, but what the artist does that captured my attention is that her colors are beautiful. That current top one of Tsuna with the gold and peach and orange colors as he's in Hyper Dying Will mode is just lovely. And the artist does a really beautiful Hibari with that same style of rich, lush colors. The artist does an older!Tsuna as well, who continues to be smoking hot, too. And her Halloween illustrations are darling! ....and I could go on like that for awhile yet, it's what I like about the site, some of the illustrations are really striking, like I want to stop and stare at them for awhile and then burble happily over them. It was a fun site to visit. (Some Hibari/Tsuna, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - WORLD HUNT Online [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - The art here is so cute and clean and adorable! It's smooth and polished enough that it could... perhaps not official art, but it's definitely some of the better doujin-quality level work I've seen. The basic lineart and shading is good (which you can see in her b&w stuff), but her coloring is also very nice--bright without being too obnoxious. I love several of the pairings here--the Hibari/Tsuna is very cute, I always love nicely done Gokudera/Tsuna, and there's even Chikusa/Ken! I hardly ever seen fanart for those two! It was a fun little site with a handful of really fantastic pieces. (Some Hibari/Tsuna, some Gokudera/Tsuna, some Chikusa/Ken, some other, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN!/Bleach/Gintama/Naruto - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This site didn't take me long at all to really come to like. Not all of the illustrations are perfect, but the artist has a style where she has very fine, detailed lines, the kind with the really fleshed backgrounds (or sometimes just really complex looking structures around the characters) or just really detailed looking clothing and it's a very cool style. And it's just even better that, while I came here for and really like the Dino/Hibari, the artist also seems fond of Gokudera/Tsuna! I reallylike the way the artist draws Dino's hair, too. *__* Her Bleach art is in much the same style and while I think it works better with other series, I find the art really cool-looking still. And ditto again for the Gintama and Naruto fanart, they're definitely worth visiting for those series as well. (Dino/Hibari and some gen for KHR. Some Aizen/Gin and some gen for Bleach. Some GinZura and some gen for Gintama. Gen for Naruto.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - platinum spider [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I hesitated on recommending this site because there's not a lot of art here (maybe only a dozen or so images total?) and the style is very messy and not necessarily going to appeal to everyone, but... I was immediately charmed by it. The style is rough and messy, sure, but it really fits with the Dino/Hibari pairing for me. She does an intense Hibari and a really hot Dino and the series of comic panels arranged into a story was really kind of hot. My only complaint about the site is that there's not enough art, I really want to see more from this artist. *__* (Dino/Hibari, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - SSM [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is another site that's not going to be for everyone, the art is very cutesy, and the early stuff is kind of shakey. I admit that I also skimmed over a lot of the comics stuff. But what I really liked about this site was that it was cute, the art made me smile and I genuinely liked it. Her Dino and Hibari are adorable especially, but I liked her Hibari-only art a lot as well. It's one of those sites that I just... felt was a nice, cute stop during my fanart hunting spree that evening. A-and, okay. The smidge of Gokudera/Tsuna didn't hurt my feelings either. :D ALSO, THERE ARE SPRITES. I LOVE SPRITES, THEY MAKE ME HEARTMARK SO HARD. And these sprites are adorable! (Dino/Hibari, a little gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I went back and forth on this site for awhile, especially because it took me a few tries to find the regular gallery, instead of just the comics or 4komas, which weren't bad at all, just that they didn't quite catch me. I waffled for a bit with the regular gallery once I found it, but kinda sliding towards being charmed... until I hit the five-panel illustration of several characters, done in these glowing CG-style colors and I loved it. The rest of the site tends to be a bit hit-or-miss, but when the artist is on, she's definitely on. The site is worth the handful of illustrations I really loved here and the sketches are quite nice. (A bunch of random yaoi pairings, no real themes, except maybe Mukuro/Tsuna and some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - ANCHOR [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I find it a real shame that this artist hadn't done more regular illustrations because her oekaki is pretty fantastic already. She shows a lot of talent, even with the scribbly lines of mouse art and her colors are the muted, soft ones I like so much, and I would love to see her take more time with a proper fanart. On the other hand, there's a lot of art on the log pages and so much it is is so damned adorable or really kind of hot or totally lolarious that I rather instantly fell in love with the site. The Gokudera/Tsuna fanart also helped a lot, the artist does them really well, they look very canon-like. Fabulous little site. ♥ (Mostly Gokudera/Tsuna and gen, but some Dino/Gokudera and someYamamoto/Tsuna, etc.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - ETTE*CHIMERA [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I've been through this site a couple of times now and I think it's slipped off my mental surface a few times, mostly just that it never really caught me. Maybe it took me a couple of times to look at it or maybe I'm changing in my preferences in the Reborn! fandom, but I... well. This site isn't going to be for everyone, but what I wound up liking about it is the way Hibari's hair looks, it looks so pretty and dark and soft and yet still intense. E-even when he's in kitty-ears! And I'm lax enough on chibis that I don't care what Hibari's expression looks like, the one where he's hugging Hibird and looking adorable are cute from an artistic angle, shut up! However, the artist does a pretty damn fine Mukuro, with each ensuing illustration, he just got more and more gorgeous. Her Dino is also quite hot and her Dino/Hibari is really pretty and her Mukuro/Hibari is really pretty damn gorgeous, too. It's not going to be for everyone, Hibari is a little less bitey than I'd usually like, but... I'm not complaining he at least looks bored through most of people glomping onto him and the colors and lines are fantastic. ♥ (Mukuro/Hibari, Dino/Hibari, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - cokissca [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This style isn't going to be for everyone, it's the kind where the artist uses a lot of sketchy lines and elongated bodies and only splashes of color most of the time. But for me it somehow intrigues me, especially as I got into the more recent art, and there's something about it that I really like. As she draws the characters more and more, they start to become an interesting blend between the canon style and the artist's own style and it's not something I'd want to see a lot, but.... Well, I'm weak for Hibari fanart, so a site with Yamamoto/Hibari and Dino/Hibari was going to hit me harder than it might someone else. I feel like I'm softballing this whole rec (and maybe I am), but I really do like some of the images here. Her recent Dino/Hibari is really kind of pretty and I love the way she draws Dino's hair. I honestly enjoyed the site. (Yamamoto/Hibari, Dino/Hibari, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - Aria*Bird [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This site has a very... shoujo-esque style. Or perhaps a BL manga-esque style. It's very soft and pastel and Gokudera is very thin and often curls upon the floor to sleep and that's not going to be for everyone. But I came here for the Tsuna/Gokudera art because I'd been craving it and... there's not a lot of that here, maybe two or three images, but I actually was kind of impressed by the amount of detail that went into the artist's work. Even if it's different from canon, the work itself is still very pretty, she uses a lot of soft greens and grays that I really adore and always puts a ton of jewelry on him and detail into the clothing. I wound up liking the site a lot. (A lot of different pairings, a lot of Everyone/Gokudera, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I think what immediately attracted me to this site, aside from coming here for the Tsuna/Gokudera fanart, is that there's some really, really cute fanart of the girls on this site! I almost never come across fanart of Kyouko or Haru, so it's delightful to see it once in awhile, especially when it's really kind of cute like with this site. The colors are soft and warm and really quite cute, especially Kyouko in the pretty dress the author draws. The sketches are more of Tsuna and/or Gokudera, but they're also cute and softly drawn and it was a fun little site. (Some Tsuna/Gokudera, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - METHYL_Plasta [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Every so often, I like sites that are kinda of stylized or just have a different look to them (while still being similar enough that I get the same enjoyment I always do out of fanart) and this site is really kinda terribly cool. What makes it work for me is the use of colors, the way they're almost shades of neon at times, which you wouldn't think would look good, but this artist makes it really kinda neat. Or maybe it's because Tsuna's Dying Will flame just looks cool with shades like that, but I love the way everyone looks here. There's also one with two Tsunas, the Hyper Dying Will Tsuna floating in a pond while the other looks down at him, the gorgeous vibrantly red momiji (I think) tree leaves framing the image. I love stuff like that. ♥ (Some Mukuro/Tsuna, but there's even more gen, I'd say.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - toxic [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I'm not sure how much this site is going to appeal to others, it's one of those that's really tough for me to judge, I just know that I really kinda find the artist's Mukuro to be totally hot. There's this really nice balance between b&w and color with the images, often times soft b&w lines with just a hint of color in his eyes or his and Tsuna's hair or a flatly colored background that makes the lines look even better. I just find the artist's style hot. And I think I find her TYL!Tsuna even more well-done and interesting, there's something about the way she draws his hair.... But, yeah, mostly recommending for the hot Mukuro fanart. Especially when he has his trident in hand, yum. *__* (Some Mukuro/Tsuna, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN!/Gintama - crown [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This style took a little while for me to get used to, it's the kind of CG art where the artist draws what looks like a million strands of their hair, so my eye is naturally drawn towards it. And it's the kind of style where the artist actually has to be really good at it for me to like it and while the artist may have started out a little shakey, I came to really like her art here. Of course, part of that is that it's Dino/Hibari and friendly towards GinZura, so I was more prone to be weak to it, but I still think it's well done and has a certain intensity to it. Not everything is perfect, but it's worth the time it took to go through for me. (Some Dino/Hibari, some other yaoi, some gen. Some GinZura for Gintama, some other yaoi, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I sort of wish this artist had done more art because the sketches (which look very polished and that cg-style of glossy that's really kinda pretty) are nice, but I would have liked to have seen her do more work that she "finished", the image of Gokudera on the top page was really nice. That said, her stuff is very cute, almost oekaki-size, but with a smoothness (most of the time) that's more CG. The b&w oekaki stuff is cute as well, though, mostly I just like her Hibari there, the pure black of his hair always looks nice. This was just a fun, cute little site to get me started today. (No real warnings/pairings, at least not with any consistency.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - down [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - So, I'm easy when it comes to certain things, right? And a hot Mukuro is one of those things. A-along with Dino/Hibari fanart, so when I'm going along on a site and there's not a whole ton of art, but the Mukuro (and Mukuro/Tsuna) art is really kinda very pretty and then I stumble over a solid Dino/Hibari illustration, well... I'm going to cave pretty fast. XD The artist does an especially good job with Mukuro and Tsuna, though, she does that sort of almost cel-style coloring several times and it looks really good here. I saved the comics for last (since they're rarely what I judge a site by) and they actually look fantastic. Of course, I might be biased because the first one I clicked on was a Dino/Hibari one, but they both looked pretty damn hot. The others were very well done as well and this was a good, solid KHR site. <3 (Some Mukuro/Tsuna, some Dino/Hibari, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN!/D.Gray-man - 316 [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I suspect this site might not be for everyone and I'll admit to skipping over a few of the illustrations myself, but what made this site really fun and interesting for me was the artist's use of those almost glowing CG colors and every so often she'd do something really fantastic with the characters. Her Dino/Hibari was really well done--you can see in the b&w lineart illustrations that she actually does some really solid drawings--and her Mukuro was pretty damn hot. These are all things that I cannot ask for much more than from a site. <3 As for the D.Gray-man fanart, her Ravi is fantastic especially, but her Kanda is pretty damn hot as well. Her b&w lineart is actually my favorites of her work with this section, they're her strongest pieces. The color almost-glowing CG style doesn't seem to work quite as well on DGM characters, but it's still really lovely art. Very worth going through for both series, I think. ♥ (Some Dino/Hibari and some gen for REBORN!. Mostly gen for DGM.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - Samurai Training [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Oh, man. It took ONE illustration from this site for me to know I was going to love it. It was this smoking hot one of Dino and Hibari in bed, with Dino lying on top of Hibari, their hands loosely wrapped around each other, and the lines of it and the use of color and Dino's tattoos was so hot. And then there was a lot of Hibari being wrapped up in Dino's whip to be pulled close or Hibari looking amazingly hot in b&w sketches or Dino with Hibird perched on his finger and it's a style of art that reminds me strongly of canon and yet still has something of its own, something a little rougher, the blend just perfect for a pairing like this one. Despite that there's not really a ton of art here, I loved the Dino/Hibari stuff enough to be completely over the moon for it. (Dino/Hibari, some Yamamoto/Gokudera, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - GKP [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Even aside from the Gokudera/Tsuna art on this site (and the really hot Gokudera in general), I wound up really being very fond of this site. It's almost sort of canon-esque, except not quite, the colors are these smooth, rich colors that I really like, and the artist does art for a lot of the main characters. The art is very professionally done, there's one of Tsuna and Gokudera dressed up in suits and each weilding a different gun and it just looks so fantastic. ♥ THIS is what I've been waiting for with REBORN! art sites (aside from all the Dino/Hibari I've been inhaling lately) and makes me want to go on yet another fanart spree. XD (Some Gokudera/Tsuna, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - BLUE WING [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Oh, man, yes, now this is what I've been looking for. This art is gorgeous, the lines and the colors and all of it are beautifully done and look so very professional-level quality to me. The very first one I saw was this utterly gorgeous one of Mukuro on top of a coffin in a forest. And then a stunning one of Hibari and Tsuna that's just--as;dlfkja amazing. The Hibari/Tsuna art on the site is really fantastic, too, the artist draws them both beautifully and, oh, man her TYL!Tsuna is amazing to look at, the details in the art are amazing. And I'm just gibbering my way through the rec. It's a fantastic site, though. ♥ (Hibari/Tsuna, some Mukuro/Tsuna, some other yaoi, some gen.)
