odds & ends

- Katekyou Hitman Reborn! - WARDROBE+ [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I was just fiddling around with Reborn! sites, not really intending to look too seriously at anything, since I'm only on volume 11, I've only just started on the Varia storyline, so it's probably still a bit too early, but... holy crap, there was a supremely hot illustration of Mukuro on the site. And then some super-hot Varia group illustrations. And then some of Tsuna and the rest of the main cast. The art is really awesome on this site, so slick and professional looking and, man, Tsuna in hyper dying will mode in this artist's hands is also so hot. And even the oekaki/sketches look fantastic! Definitely one of the best sites I've seen so far... and has me contemplating Mukuro/Tsuna now, given the way the artist draws it. *__* (Some Mukuro/Tsuna, a little other yaoi implications, but there's a lot gen, too.)

- Katekyou Hitman Reborn! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I keep thinking that such soft, light colors (which this artist often uses) shouldn't work so well with a series like Reborn! and yet... they do. I really liked this artist's work, especially her Mukuro, you can tell how much fun she must have drawing the character. Most of the illustrations are kind of sketch-like, though, with very nice coloring, so I'll probably still keep searching for more art after I finish this site, but it was a cool little stop along the way, you know? Plus, there's kind of a lot of art tucked away on the various pages and that always helps. :D (No warnings/pairings, maybe a little Mukuro/Tsuna.)

- Katekyou Hitman Reborn! - neo [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I haven't gotten far enough into the manga to get where the idea of Yamamoto/Hibari would come from, but I saw the banner for this site and couldn't resist clicking on the link. Because goddamn that is some fine Reborn! fanart right there, Yamamoto and Hibari both look awesome. The Mukuro/Tsuna is also very, very nice, both pairings are done with really sharp, clean lines and then these really pretty CG colors are added in, the kind that almost glow with how vivid they are, and it just makes everything look so smooth and professional. I love how intense the art is, too, especially anything with Hibari in it, which is how Hibari should always be drawn. (Yamamoto/Hibari, Mukuro/Tsuna.)

- Katekyou Hitaman Reborn! - LePto [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Another site where the artist has these slick lines and colors, the kind that look really smooth and polished, making the art look just stylized enough to be kinda cool. The artist also experiments with style a little, there are some neat watercolor-style images as well, which were interesting to look at. Some of the art is more cute than super-hot, but I still enjoyed those pieces, so it's another site that I'm glad to have gotten a fix off of. :D (Hibari/Tsuna, Mukuro/Tsuna.)

- Gurren Lagann/Katekyou Hitman Reborn! - Freak-Out [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I originally came here for the Gurren Lagann fanart, which there actually isn't that much of, but it's got this really beautiful one of Kamina and Simon sleeping with Kamina's arm around him, and I may have totally wibbled over that. Totally worth it for that one illustration alone. But it was the Reborn! art that actually caught my attention even more, there were a lot of really cool illustrations, but it was every time the artist drew Mukuro where I was really starting to sit up and take note, he's gorgeous on this site. All the art is really solid and well-done, it's fun to see all the various Tsuna pairings, but it's totally Mukuro who's the hottest here. ♥ (Some potential Kamina/Simon, but it could be totally gen. Some Tsuna/everyone, mostly Mukuro/Tsuna, some gen.)

- Katekyou Hitman Reborn! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This site is another example of how, while I'm not sure I could do Mukuro/Tsuna outside of fanart, the fanart itself is totally winning me over, because there's so much of it that's so pretty and so hot. I love the artist's slick, clean lines, the way she uses a CG-esque style for Mukuro's hair and the often excellent backgrounds and kickass poses. Nothing everything on the site blows me away, but there's enough that are outstand and everything is a certain level of quality, that I was impressed with the site. Because, well, those junk sketches? Very nice. :9 (Mukuro/Tsuna, but worth it for the Mukuro stand-alones/gen if you don't mind scrolling.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - There's not a whole lot of art here, but the handful that is here is really quite lovely. Some of the early ones are nice, but it's after the artist has put up a few, after she's had some time to practice that she gets really good. The Mukuro/Tsuna illustrations can be just gorgeous, the one of Tsuna leaning back into Mukuro, the gold fire that surrounds them, it's just... really impressive. The artist also draws a damn fine Hibari, all harsh, intense lines that works so well with his character. So, it's not a very large site, but it's worth a quick trip through, some of the art is really damn fine. (Some Mukuro/Tsuna, some other, some gen.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - MELANCHOLIC shinwasei [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is a nice, solid site with a decent amount of well-done art. Hibari/Tsuna is a pairing I see fairly often, but since I don't seek it out as much, I don't see it that often, so it's nice to stumble across it once in awhile. While I like the color art on the site well enough, I think the artist really shines when she does b&w illustrations, the lines look much better and the use of highly contrasted tones works well with her style. Though, the sketches are pretty damn cute, too. And there's at least a couple of really nice Mukuro/Tsuna sketches tucked away on the pages. And some very nice Dino/Hibari on a page or two. All in all, a nice little site if you like the pairings, I think. And, hey, now I can cross Dino/Gokudera off my list! XD (Hibari/Tsuna, some Mukuro/Tsuna, a little other.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is another site that doesn't have a whole lot of art on it, but the Hibari/Tsuna illustrations are so pretty and so professional looking that I was immediately charmed by them. They seriously half look like they could just about be official art, that's how slick and clean the colors and lines of them are. Well, at least some of them. And the others are still just really pretty, the artist uses soft, pretty pastel colors a lot or pretty shades of blue and her Hibari is hot and her Tsuna is adorable and her Mukuro is pretty. That's often all I ask of a site. XDD (Hibari/Tsuna, Mukuro/Tsuna.)

- 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! - 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! - 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! - 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.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I don't know how this site will go over with others, but I really wound up rather liking it, the art was solid and decent right from the beginning and the artist improved over time. I especially like her bright colors and the way her group illustrations are really detailed and strong. In a lot of ways, they remind me of posters for the anime series and it's fun to see all the different Tsuna pairings the artist comes up with. M-my favorites are probably the Mukuro/Tsuna and Gokudera/Tsuna ones (and the Mukuro vs Gokudera for Tsuna one was really kinda great <3), but that's not really a surprise. XD You can tell the artist really likes drawing Tsuna, she does pretty well with him. (Several pairings, mostly Gokudera/Tsuna, Mukuro/Tsuna, and a smidge of Dino/Tsuna, but some gen, too.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - Ala*Collete [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Between the Dragonball fusions and the super-cute Chrome art, I was rather hard-pressed not to be fond of this site right from the beginning. The site is a little off the wall, but I found I really liked that, especially when the artist put a lot of time into her illustrations and drew something very pretty. She has these light, clean CG-style colors for her Mukuro/Tsuna art and, sure, often times Tsuna is in a princess outfit or Mukuro is dressed like Sailor Venus, but that doesn't take away from how well this artist draws. Plus, who doesn't want to see Mukuro in a dress sometimes? I don't want to meet the person that doesn't. XDDD This site was just... fun. <3 (Mukuro/Tsuna, some gen.)

- Kateyou Hitman REBORN!/D.Gray-man/Hikaru no Go - Gyarandoh [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Oh, man, right from the moment I stepped onto this site, I knew I would probably like it tons. The current top page's background looked fantastic, all the fine detail and neat use of that special CG style (that I tend to see more often on Korean sites, but I've seen it on several j-sites as well now) and the whole cast and just... it's so pretty. The artist takes a bit to get her regular illustrations up to the same amount of detail all over the images, but she starts out strong from the beginning and draws some really beautiful stuff. I can't decide whether I like her Tsuna or her Mukuro better, they both look so gorgeous! ALSO! Her comics are fully colored and as;dlfkjalskj yes that is so very rare to find, especially when the colors are so beautiful like on this site. As for the DGM art, it's much the same style, all these pretty colors and amazing details (holy crap some of them are kind of amazing for that!) and gorgeous to look at. Just about every single illustration in the DGM gallery looks like it must have taken forever, like it could be a fully realized poster for the series. And her Allen is gorgeous to look and I just-- I loved this site. *__*<3 And, finally, the Hikago art is in much the same vein as the first two, if a bit older and so not as detailed. (Though, the later ones start to become really pretty awesome.) But still worth a trip through the site if you're in the mood for a lot of AkiHika art. (Mukuro/Tsuna for REBORN!, Kanda/Allen and a smidge of gen for DGM, Akira/Hikaru for Hikago.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - con. [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - If you've been following my fanart recs for REBORN! much, you'll know that I have a weakness for Dino/Hibari art, that I'll rec sites for them that I might not look at for very long with other pairings, because I'm much easier to touch with them. And, with this site, if it'd been another pairing, I probably would have liked the art just as much, but because there's not a lot here, I might have decided against it. However, there's Dino/Hibari here and it's really pretty, slick, shiny art with some fantastically adorable chibi stationary doujin art and even a cute Dino/Hibari comic. And, thus, I recommend it. XD (Dino/Hibari, Mukuro/Tsuna. Maybe a little other.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - +005 [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - There's not a lot of art here and it took me awhile to find the links because of the layout (the way they're white links on white background orz) but I thought it was worth it, since the artist does a lovely Mukuro. Not everything is perfect and, really, I'd be surprized if there were much more than a dozen proper images here, but I'm easy for a hot Mukuro illustration. A nice little site. :D (Some Mukuro/Tsuna, some gen.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is one of those sites where I think maybe I liked the b&w stuff more than the color stuff (even though I kept wanting to find more color art at the same time, huh), something about that seems to draw my eye better to the interesting detail the artist puts into the images. I'm sure I was biased towards this site because there's a lot of Xanxus and Squalo (and Tsuna and some Yamamoto) art here and I've been intrigued by that pairing a lot lately, but... it really is interesting stuff to look at. The comics and the splash-page-style illustrations are my favorites, it's a style I've been weak to ever since getting into FMA and One Piece (which would often have fanart in that kinda style), but everything here is really fun or really cool to look at. Not necessarily going to wow everyone, but it's grown to be one of my favorite kind of styles, so I loved the site. (Mostly gen, but some Yamamoto/Squalo, some Xanxus/Squalo, some Xanxus/Squalo/Tsuna, some Squalo/Tsuna, some Hibari/Tsuna, some Mukuro/Tsuna, some other possible pairings.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN!/Death Note - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - The art on this site starts out cute, if a little shakey, but quickly becomes really, really pretty. The artist puts in a lot of detail, which is nice, but it's more the... the use of colors and something that almost glows in them. If I were just looking at b&w, I think I would like them, but when I see the artist's colors, they become really that much more outstanding. The artist does an amazing job with Mukuro especially, but it's also worth visiting the site for the gorgeous Colonello illustration, the stunning Hyper Dying Will Tsuna illustration, and even the pairing stuff is really cute. As for the Death Note stuff, I think it's a bit older, so it's not quite as strong, but the artist does some really cool concepts--Raito against the stained glass church windows is one of my favorites--and somewhat of a variety of the main trio that I wound up really liking it, too. (Mostly a gen site, but some Mukuro/Tsuna, a smidge of Hibari/Tsuna. Gen for Death Note.)

- Naruto/Katekyou Hitman REBORN!/Gintama - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I probably would have skipped right past the Naruto section on this site if not for a few things: I do really like the artist's style, it's interesting and cool to look at, it's not a style I see super-often, but when it's done well, it's good. The Sasuke stand-alone character art was fun for me to look at, the almost b&w style the artist has is a little reminiscent of a shounen manga style (different enough from Kishimoto's to be interesting, but similar enough to be recognizable, a good balance) and I know there are a lot of people who like Kakashi/Sasuke. As for the REBORN! art, the style suits the characters as well (though, I thought maybe the Naruto art was a little bit better done) and the artist's Gokudera is especially fantastic. The amazing amount of detail she puts into illustrations with him is terrific. ♥ Though, I think the Gintama art might just be the best out of them all, since the detail and b&w-esque style works so perfectly with the feel of the Gintama art, it's very canon-like! (Kakashi/Sasuke for Naruto. Maybe some Mukuro/Tsuna for REBORN!, but mostly gen. Mostly gen for Gintama.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - One of the things that I find vaguely frustrating about the REBORN! fanart sites--when it comes to Mukuro art, that is--that some of it is really pretty and there's a ton of it, but I can never really remember which sites I've been to and which ones I haven't, because I'm usually more focused on other characters/pairings. But I'm pretty sure I've never been to this site before because I think I would have remembered a) the Byakuran/Mukuro art or b) the one of Mukuro surrounded by falling feathers and ocean behind him, which was just. Really striking. There's also one of Vongola Boss!Tsuna that's also just... really striking, is the best way I can put it. Not everything on the site is perfect, but there's some really interesting art to be found occasionally and that made it worth the visit. (Mukuro/Tsuna, Byakuran/Mukuro, some gen.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I went back and forth on this site for a bit at first, the illustrations seemed to have not resized quite right or something, but you could tell that the artist had some really neat stuff going on. But I kept at the gallery and was totally rewarded with a beautiful Hibari illustration and then a kind of super hot Mukuro/Hibari illustration with panthers and then a really lovely one of Tsuna freeing Mukuro and-- well. Not everything here is perfect, but occasionally there's an image that just totally knocks it out of the park and there's a surprising amount of art here and it was a really satisfying site. The artist's Mukuro/Tsuna is especially lovely, it's all sharp lines and edges that really work for these two! (Mukuro/Tsuna, Mukuro/Hibari, some other, some gen.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ English Fanart Site ] - You can find all the REBORN! art from here, but I think the whole gallery is worth going through. The style is a little messy, but in combination with the pretty, almost glowing colors or the really sharp lines, somehow I was really fond of it. The artist does a really awesome job on both Tsuna and Mukuro especially, but her Hibari is pretty damn hot and thus three danger is probably my favorite of hers. The details on that piece, the colors on it, the hot as hell poses! That is what I love about REBORN! fanart. Though, I also have to say Vongola Primo is a seriously gorgeous as hell b&w image of Tsuna. *__* Totally worth checking out and maybe even wandering through the artist's other stuff. (Some Mukuro/Tsuna, mostly gen, I'd say.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I was looking for more Nabari no Ou fanart and happened to stumble over this site instead. I wavered a little on it, not everything on the site is perfect, but there were enough that were either really cute or just flat-out gorgeous that I had to eventually cave. The artist is especially amazing at drawing Tsuna, the one of him in full Vongola wear is just stunning and worth the site alone for that one. But she's also got a cute one of Haru and Kyoko together, she's got a pretty one of Hibari, she's got a really hot Squalo illustration, a really beautiful Chrome one, and so forth. For a site that's pro-Mukuro/Tsuna, there was a really nice amount of the other characters and they were all really pretty! (Some Mukuro/Tsuna, some gen.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ English Fanart Site ] - Another site that I wasn't sure what I was going to get into at first, but--! I am also weak to the CG art! Especially when the colors are so vivid, omg. And you can really see the progress in the artist from even just half a year ago and I kind of really want to see where this artist could go in another six months. It's not my usual pairings--there's a lot of Mukuro/Tsuna and a fair amount of Yamamoto/Gokudera, I'd say--but one of the really nice things is that the artist got a wide variety going, so even if those two aren't your thing, there's bound to be something else you'll like--for me, it was the D18 art that made me pretty gleeful, but the Hawaiian Xanxus/Squalo image or the Hibari standalone or the Mukuro portrait or the Halloween Mukuro/Tsuna were all seriously fantastic. I really want to see more from this artist, no matter what pairings are drawn, which I think says a lot. XD (Some Mukuro/Tsuna, some other yaoi, some gen.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is another site where I was looking for Suikoden Tierkreis art and somehow managed to stumble over a KHR site. The current top illustration was an intriguing looking one of Hibari, so I thought, what the hell, I'll click through the gallery. I'm really glad I did because this artist does some amazing detail and sharp lines in her images--she doesn't even really need color because there's so much already packed into these images. There didn't even need to be a lot of them to catch my attention, there's probably only a dozen or so in the main gallery, but I hardly noticed because I could really take my time with this gallery. And I love the focus on Hibari, Tsuna, and Mukuro's characters, the artist does a tremendous job with each of them. (Some Mukuro/Tsuna, some Hibari/Tsuna, some Yamamoto/Chrome, some gen.)
