- Katekyou Hitman Reborn! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is one of those sites that's probably not going to appeal to a person unless you're the type that likes oekaki art a lot. (Or just really likes Gokudera a lot, since the site is focused mostly on him.) That's pretty much what this site is made up of--a bunch of pages with a lot of oekaki scribbles on them, which is something I really like and I tend to be won over by the whole of a site, where enough really cute or interesting little images can win me over even if I wasn't knocked over by any single image. Actually, I'd really have liked to have seen more of this artist doing regular images, there's a lot of potential here, I think she could do some really awesome stuff. Though, in the meantime, her oekaki art is pretty hot already. <3 (Maybe maybe a smidge of yaoi, but it's primarely a gen site.)


- 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! - 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.)


- Katekyou Hitman Reborn! - 1691999 [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I was kind of in the mood for some Dino/Hibari this morning and happened onto this site, which took me all of about three illustrations to know that I really liked it. While the artist's Hibari is a little more passive/uncaring than I'd usually go for (one of the things that I liked so much about him was that he was kind of scary intense--and she does sometimes draw him looking the way I prefer, which is nice), her style is really hot and fitting for the series. There's a lot of oekaki-esque art, even in the main gallery, but that just adds to the awesomeness of her style. There's an almost rough, jagged quality to the art, which makes her Dino look totally hot and she does the occasional damn fine Mukuro as well. I liked this site a lot. (Dino/Hibari, a little other potential yaoi, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman Reborn! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This artist has a very chibi-esque style to her art, which isn't something I usually see coupled with the harsher lines like she has, so... while some images weren't to my taste and the style might not work perfectly for everyone, I was enamored with several pieces the artist had done. When the artist takes a little more time with her art, you can really see the details and colors flourish, but I do have to admit some of the scribbles were pretty damn cute, too. For the most part, they look like younger versions of themselves on this site, but I found I didn't mind that so much and I... I am not opposed to the idea of Mukuro/Hibari. (Mukuro/Hibari, just enough gen that, if you step carefully, you could still enjoy the site.)


- 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! - Anxious Color [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I went back and forth on this site for awhile, I was just about ready to leave, still going through the last several pages of art on the site, when... I don't know. The artist has all this potential when she really concentrates on drawing something well, there are a handful of illustrations on the site that just look awesome. And while some still look a little off, the later illustrations really have shown a lot of progress. The colors are slick and great looking as well, so I eventually caved on recommending this site. It's one I'd like to keep in mind for future reference. :D (Some Yamamoto/Hibari, a little Mukuro/Chrome, a lot of gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - DESORDEN [ Japanese Fanart Sites ] - The longer I'm a fan of Reborn! the more I find myself becoming a fan of Dino and becoming increasingly weak towards fanart of him. This site has some really super-cute art with the light pastel colors that sort of shimmer/glow and... I like that style so I'm probably going to be softer towards than most people might be? I like Dino's messy pale blond hair, I like Tsuna's shining eyes, I like their cute clothes, etc. There's a fair amount of art on the site as well and will probably appeal to you more if you like the Dino and Tsuna characters a lot, which I do. (Dino/Tsuna, a little other.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - KJ [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - There's not a whole ton of art here, but at least there's a solid amount, which I mostly only complain about because I would really like to have seen more from this artist. There's a feel from her art that's very much like the canon source, which I didn't realize for a little while at first because the artist resizes her images on the page, making them look very aliased. When I viewed them at their regular size, the lines smoothed out considerably and the art looked terrific. My favorites were the Dino/Hibari illustrations of course, but the artist does a really fantastic Tsuna and some great Hibari stand alones as well. Very worth the trip here. (Some Dino/Hibari, maybe some Hibari/Tsuna, some gen.)


- 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! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I realize that I end up recommending a lot of sites that most people probably aren't going to like, so my tastes might not mesh with a lot of people's, but I kind of can't help it when it comes to sites like this. After seeing as much fanart as I have, sometimes it starts to all blend together in my brain, so I want something a little different, even if it's just a style that's a little messier or has an interesting use of color like this site does. I was intrigued by the Tsuna/Gokudera illustration on the site, amused by cute little Kyouya illustrations, intrigued by little bitty Mukuro with the sly smirk on his face, but I think it was really the one of little kidlet Squalo with his hair up in ponytails that really did it for me. And while there's not a ton of art here, the artist covers a lot of potential pairings--Xanxus/Squalo, Yamamoto/Squalo, Tsuna/Gokudera, Dino/Hibari, etc.--and it was kinda fun to look at them all. (A lot of potential yaoi pairings, a lot of gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - A Hibari/Ryouhei site is really not something I expected to find, at least not something that looks as beautiful as this site does. I was initially intrigued by the stand alone stuff with several of the main characters, the art's a little shakey at first but the artist quickly gets better. And then the Ryouhei/Hibari stuff is gorgeous. The one of them tangled up in ribbons is very nicely done, but I think I love the chibis of Ryouhei, Kyouko, and little pissy Hibari being dragged along as they run even more. Just. as;ldfkjalskj so cute! ♥ I... I would also totally do a Ryouhei/Hibari/Kyouko trio at least once. At least by this artist. Also, the oekaki are interesting to look at and make it so that there's a decent amount of art on the site. I had fun. <3 ....also, I may have loved the little oekaki images of Dino, Squalo, Bel and his brother as little kids in school together and being utter little mafia brats. XDDD (Ryouhei/Hibari, some other yaoi, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - primaries [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - You know what's another thing I never expected to see much of, much less draw all pretty like on this site? Basil fanart. A lot of them are really just more sketches than regular fanart illustrations, but Basil looks very much recognizable as himself and the artist uses a lot of warm, gold-esque colors and I'm weak to that sort of thing. And I probably would have been all wibbly on the site anyway, just from the sketch of Basil resting in bed while Iemitsu comes to check on him. And, hell, the Dino/Basil is kinda cute, too, and the Basil/Tsuna illustrations are very sweet to look at. I just quietly enjoyed this site. (Some Dino/Basil, some Basil/Tsuna, possible Iemitsu/Basil...?--I'm choosing to interpret it as gen--some other, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - Glitter. [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I didn't really expect to find another Dino/Basil site, despite that I was wandering around and clicking on interesting links from the last site's links pages, and... well, it's one of those sites that I just sort of randomly stumbled over and started looking around because I like Dino and the promise of Basil fanart is still new and intriguing. And the artist's style is interesting, half of the time it's brightly colored CG and the other half of the time it's a bit more experimental. But when I look at the b&w sketches or comics, the artist really has a lot of potential to do some cool stuff and I have to admit the site was worth it for the sketch of Dino poking frosting (from a birthday cake) onto Hibari's face while Basil goes :D nervously at the camera and Hibari looks about two seconds away from killing everything in sight. (Dino/Basil.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I have a great fondness for art sites that use the CG style well, especially when the colors are really vivid and sharp to match the pointy lines and the artist does a very nice Tsuna in Hyper Dying Will mode, where his eyes and the fire are practically glowing. He looks so hot that way. And there's a gorgeous Chrome illustration here, too. And I like the way the artist's Dino/Hibari looks as well, all that messy, sharp hair, the vivid yellows and blacks and purples used for these characters. The clothes look so sharp and clean as well and the b&w sketches show off the pretty lines from the artist, especially on Hibari who looks just gorgeous, you can just tell how much the artist really likes the character. There's a solid amount of art here and it's one of the better ones I've been to lately for this pairing, I think. Also, I may have lol'd at the image of Dino with his arm around Hibari to hold him in place while he forcibly shoves the Vongola ring onto his hand while Hibari looks pissy. Or Dino leaning over to read over Hibari's shoulder, while Hibari casually stabs his hand with a pen. It's the little things sometimes. ♥ (Some Dino/Hibari, some other, but there's more gen art than anything else.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - giggle [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Sometimes I get a little sadfaced when art sites only have b&w illustrations (or at least very few with color in them), but other times there are artists who do these amazingly sharp and brilliantly contrasted b&w images that I end up thinking that color would just ruin them, they're perfect as they are. It especially works with characters like Hibari and Mukuro, those two who both have such sharp edges and that glossy black hair, and that certain intensity to them. There's not a ton of art here, but I love the site anyway, it does them both so well, so hot, really. Though, you can find more (and a lot of hot gen art) in the oekaki section, which was v. v. nice, yes. (Mukuro/Hibari, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman Reborn/D.Gray-man - HYS [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Oh, now, this site is just cool, I love the style that's almost messy, where the illustrations almost look indestinct a lot of the time, but it creates this really kinda cool stylized feel to the images. Plus, you know, it helped that one of the first images I saw was Chrome and Tsuna leaning against each other and I... it's not that I ship them so much as I thought the idea would be cute for a couple of seconds. Then the site followed that up with some fantastic Hyper Dying Will mode Tsuna illustrations and then with some pretty Gokudera/Tsuna. The style is slightly rough, but it just makes the art look hotter, I felt and the comics are especially hot, especially the Gokudera/Tsuna moments. The DGM fanart is in much the same style, it starts out with some really cool, slick, almost glowing colors in these really intriguing concepts, almost like paintings of the characters and reflections of themselves, and the followed it up with some lovely shippy stuff and Lee siblings art. ♥ A cool little site. (Some Gokudera/Tsuna, some Mukuro/Chrome, some gen for KHR. Some Allen/Rinali, some Kanda/Rinali, some gen for DGM.)


- 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 not a pairing I thought I would find myself recommending a site for, but... well, I really like I-Pin and I'd be willing to look at just about anything for fanart of her. Plus, I totally love more Hibari fanart! And not all of the illustrations were to my taste, but the artist definitely experimented with a lot of different concepts/styles and it was interesting to see the results, several of which I thought were very pretty. When the artist draws more straight-forward art, it looks really good and I wound up genuinely like her work. Very nice. (Hibari/I-Pin.)


- 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 ] - I tried to show some restraint, I really did. B-but... I'm weak, okay? And speaking of pairings that I didn't really expect to rec much from, this is another Ryouhei/Hibari site and, well, I like Hibari fanart of all varieties and Ryouhei art is just rare enough that I treasure it when I find it. Plus, I officially caved on this site when I stumbled across the chibi illustration of Ryouhei dragging Hibari along while Yamamoto chased them, it was just TOO DAMN CUTE to resist. The artist has a really clean, light style and some simple, but pretty colors and it works well for her style and the pairing. There's also a Dino/Yamamoto illustration in the gallery and I just... someday, I'm going to make a checklist of every pairing fanart illustration possible in the Reborn! universe and this site is going to be so very helpful in crossing many off the list. ♥ A-also, her Hibari, especially in some of the sketches, can be hot. (Ryouhei/Hibari.)


- 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.)


- 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 ] - 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! - [ 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! - 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! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Shamal/Hibari is not a pairing that I understand where it comes from, but... well, pretty fanart is pretty fanart. I like both characters and I'm generally pretty easy for Hibari fanart, especially when the artist's work is so pretty. The colors and lines are very clean and soft, a lot of lighter pastels or muted colors, her Hibari is very cute/pretty. It's not something I desperately crave more of, but this artist is talented and the site made an interesting fanart spree stop. (Shamal/Hibari.)


- 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.)
