- Katekyou Hitman Reborn! - Rb-by [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Maybe it's a little soon for me to be looking for fanart for Reborn!, I'm only in the mid-80s at the moment. But I spent last night reading over four volumes of the manga and I desperately craved some fanart, especially if there was some hot Hibari or maybe a little Tsuna/Gokudera-friendly art. This site totally delivers on both counts (I'm not particularly attached to any pairing yet, but if I had to choose one, it'd be Tsuna/Gokudera so far), a smidge shakey in the beginning, which smooths out quickly and then gets gorgeous. The artist's Hibari is super hot, she totally does justice to that sideways slanted look in his eyes, the one that just reeks of lethal grace and deadliness and asdl;fkjaslkj yes. The colors are bright, the kind of almost glowing soft CG-style coloring that I like a lot, and the characters (who aren't Hibari or the other insane ones XD) are adorable, the diary art is kind of smoking hot, and it's just... a really good site for me to have started out with tonight. ♥ (Some Gokudera/Tsuna, a lot of gen, too.)

- One Piece/Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - CHITTYCHITTY [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is one of those times that I wish I could like the Zoro/Luffy pairing more, because the artist here draws them so incredibly like canon, it's sort of amazing. The wonderful thing (both for me and for all One Piece fans) is that she doesn't just draw that pairing, she draws all the characters, you can find art of pretty much every main character and they all look fantastic. Plus, the illustrations are fun and happy, so much like the style of Oda's color illustrations, too. In comparison, there's not nearly as much Reborn! fanart (compared to the solid section of One Piece), but what's here is adorable Gokudera/Tsuna art. The lines are so clean and so much like their canon selves, I love it! A fantastic site. ♥ (Zoro/Luffy, and a lot of gen for OP. Gokudera/Tsuna for Reborn!.)

- 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! - goccos! [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Oh, man, the Gokudera/Tsuna art on this site is so cute sometimes! It's not always my cup of tea, but when the artist draws them in this cute little chibi-esque style and uses these warm, soft pastel colors, they're just so adorable that I can't help grinning and wanting to scoop them up to snuggle them for an hour or so. And, really, for as chibi-esque and cute as they are, there's often a surprising amount of detail put into the illustrations, so... it's not necessarily going to be for everyone, but if you like cute stuff once in awhile, you'll probably enjoy this site. And, hell, I thought the site was worth visiting for the one of Gokudera and Tsuna lying together in the pond, the soft pretty blues and tans working for this pairing. (Gokudera/Tsuna.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This site has some very nice CG-style coloring and designs, which the artist is pretty good at. Maybe not perfect, but I liked the art right from the beginning and it only helped when I got into the Gokudera/Tsuna art, the artist does an especially canon-style Tsuna. However, her group art, especially the one of Hyper Dying Will Tsuna with the Varia in the background looks fantastic. The art only gets better with time and it wound up being a really nice, solid site for the pairing and for Reborn! in general. (Gokudera/Tsuna, Xanxus/Squalo, a smidge of 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 ] - You know how I try to stay strong on sites and then sort of cave when I get to a certain illustration or two? Y-yeah. This site probably isn't going to be for everyone and you might have to be a Tsuna/Gokudera fan ahead of time to really fall for it like I did, but I was growing very fond of the site and the only thing holding me back was that there wasn't a lot of art here. And then I got to the fanart of Gokudera playing the piano while Tsuna watched and I was just quietly gone. I don't know why this illustration worked so much for me, but it somehow does. Plus, Tsuna with baby puppy Gokudera is just ridiculously cute. ♥ The site just... left me with a warm and fuzzy feeling by the end. (Gokudera/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! - Wrong Direction [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I stumbled over this site via a link to the artist's page after seeing one of her doujinshi and I was kinda quietly blown away with how she just nails the Reborn! style in her doujinshi. Like she could practically have been drawing the manga itself, her Gokudera and Tsuna are just dead-on and seem to be rather wonderfully in character as well. Going through the site was a lot of fun, too, because her color work and the comics on the site are fantastic, too. Her Gokudera is probably hot and her Tsuna is so adorable and the site is really, really fun to go through. One of the best Gokudera/Tsuna sites out there, I suspect. (Gokudera/Tsuna.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - coi [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - It didn't take me long at all to come to really like this site. I figured I probably would because the top illustration at the time looked really quite pretty and so even if the early stuff started out a little shakey, the artist drew these cute, softly colored adorable illustrations. It wouldn't work for a lot of pairings in this series, I suspect, but with Gokudera/Tsuna, I liked it a lot. Her colors are lovely as well and I love that, even though this is a Gokudera/Tsuna site, the artist sometimes draws these adorable (or even occasionally really hot) illustrations of the girls, too. Everything is soft and warm and fuzzy and just made me happy to see. ♥ (Gokudera/Tsuna.)

- 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/Naruto - PHIL PHIL [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I'm not sure this site will appeal to absolutely everyone, but I thought that in the few b&w illustrations the artist did, you could really see how totally rockin her lineart could be. It's detailed and sharp and clean and looks really hot. Occasionally, I really like what she does with colors as well, but often times what she does instead of normal coloring, she just uses a few splashes or faintly coloring things and it gives her style a cool feel. I also find her Gokudera suitably hot at all the right times and her GokuTsuna is really adorable or sweet or touching in all the right moments as well. As for her Naruto fanart, much of the same applies, there's some solid lineart that reflects the tone of the series well and she often uses these warm, orange and gold colors. Shikamaru/Naruto isn't a pairing I've really seen much of before, but this artist draws it really well. And her gen group stuff or her Naruto with the fox tails sneaking out of his coat are awesome. (Gokudera/Tsuna for Reborn!. Shikamaru/Naruto, a little bit of Sasuke/Naruto and a little other yaoi for Naruto.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - Spacy Morita [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This art site isn't going to be for everyone, especially the artist's take on an older Tsuna, but I wasn't here for him anyway. I was here for the Tsuna/Gokudera (I... I've been browsing search engines, okay?) and the artist's Gokudera is really, really gorgeous. You can tell how much she likes by the way he looks fantastic and the details and colors on him are tremendous. The style isn't always strictly canon, but other times she just nails canon, so it's sort of hit-or-miss with that. But most of the time I wasn't looking for an exact replica of canon, I was looking at the artist's take on the characters, the way they looked in her style. And, god, her comics are beautiful to look at, the detail and strength of the art is amazing. Plus! Tsuna/Gokudera! Excellent. (Tsuna/Gokudera, some other.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Okay, yes, I am finally starting to find the kind of sites I knew had to be out there--the ones with smoking on Gokudera art and the occasional nod to Tsuna/Gokudera. The artist obviously favors Gokudera and it shows in how well she draws him, even the earliest sketches/log art are really strong and well-done. Her kiddy!Gokudera is darling, her Tsuna is a bit hit-or-miss, but when she draws him right, he looks fantastic, too. Her Tsuna with baby!Gokudera is sweet enough to practically give me cavities as well. My only real complaint about the site is that I wish she'd drawn a bit more non-oekaki art, because there's a ton of that here and it's all really, really hot, but... when she does proper illustrations, they look even more fantastic. (Tsuna/Gokudera, Yamamoto/Gokudera, some Hibari/Gokudera.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - 10/10 [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I really wish there were more than just eight links in the main gallery section because this artist does a tremendous job with Tsuna/Gokudera, each illustration is full of tons of detail and really pretty, soft colors. There are a couple of comics on the site as well, which could totally be really good doujinshi for the level of detail that's in them and how hot the characters look. It's a small site, but worth checking out if you like the pairing. (Gokudera/Tsuna.)

- 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! - 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! - pokenaka. [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This site kind of confused me a little. There were some adorable Gokudera, Tsuna, and Gokudera/Tsuna illustrations in a cute CG style, the kind that has a sort of anime-cel-style-esque coloring to it and it looked all very cute. And then there was Chrome hentai w-with tentacles. Then back to Tsuna and Gokudera being adorable and smiling happily and holding hands or lying near each other. Then topless Chrome comic. Then Gokudera and Tsuna being cute again. And the level of quality is all consistent and the artist's style is recognizable in both, it's just... I'm not used to going from one to the other so much on the same site like this. That said, the site is totally adorable and the colors are well-done and the GokuTsuna is so cute! There was even one cute Dino/Hibari illustration and you know how that puts me in a good mood. <3 I really, really liked the site, the artist has a lot of talent her lines are really clean and smooth, I look forward to more from her. <3 (Some Gokudera/Tsuna, some gen, some NSFW Chrome illustrations.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - SPUMONIC [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - There are some links that I'll click on that look really interesting from the banner and then I'll find a site that's a bit disappointing. Not bad, just not as good as I'd hoped it would be. Then there are sites that are everything the banner promises and I would definitely put this one into the latter catagory, the detail and pretty coloring on this site is fantastic. Her Gokudera and Tsuna look beautiful and this is the kind of art I knew had to be out there for these two, even if it sometimes takes me awhile to find all the really good sites. There's a real level of professional quality to the art, I wouldn't be surprised if the artist did shounen ai manga or doujinshi (I haven't looked), there's a clean and smooth quality to the art that looks like she's had tons of practice. She uses these sepia tones a lot of the time that make the characters look fantastic and which also match the site beautifully, creating this really pretty overall experience with the site. ♥ (Gokudera/Tsuna, a lot of gen in the sketches section.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I swear, I'm not even deliberately looking for Gokudera/Tsuna art right now, it's just sort of falling right into my lap. I'm sure part of it is just clicking onto the right circle of fanart sites, the links pages tend to be very incestuous, but it's really, really not hurting my feelings at all. ♥ There's a sort of rough quality to this artist's style, but she works in a surprising amount of detail and is just close enough to the canon style to make it all work for me. Plus, it's not just Gokudera/Tsuna, there's also adorable art of Yamamoto holding Reborn up while Lambo clings to his leg, there's really cool Chrome in mid-fight art, there's some really interesting Mukuro art, a gorgeous one of Yamamoto, some awesome group stuff, a fantastic Mukuro/Hibari (mmm *__*), etc. While my favorite is still the Gokudera/Tsuna (and the artist's as well, I suspect), I think it's also worth visiting if you just want a variety of art to look at. <3 (Some Gokudera/Tsuna, some gen.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN!/Gintama - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - There's a certain clean quality to the art here that I really liked, largely because the art was so cute and because the lines of the artist's style are actually really quite strong. They're smooth and sure, which only get better over the course of the site as the artist settles more fully into the coloring style. The Gintama art looks almost a little like colored-pencil-esque, while the REBORN! art tends to be more CG-esque, eventually moving towards the Gintama style, I'd say. I really liked the site because I don't think there are many implied pairings, mostly it's just cute gen stuff and the artist doesn't ignore the girls of either series. ♥ I suppose you could say the one of Dino holding a drink up to Tsuna's face might be a little shounen-ai-ish, but I could read it as platonic, too. Then there's little kidlet!Mukuro dotted with blood as he holds his trident and it's really kinda pretty and creepy. And then a series of really pretty Tsuna oekaki images. And then a gorgeous one of Nagi. And so on. Sometimes I think I'd take these gen sites over pairing sites, just because I get such a warm, happy feeling over them. (No real warnings/pairings for either series, nothing I'm going to count. Well. Maybe a smidge of Gokudera/Tsuna for REBORN!, but it's really a gen site.)

- Tales of the Abyss/Tales of Destiny/Harukanaru Toki no Naka de/Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I think this might be the first Tales of Destiny site I'm properly recommending, which I normally avoid because I only know of the game through second-hand knowledge and having read a few volumes of the manga, which give me enough info to recognize characters, but not a deep appreciation of the game. However, there is Leon + Rutee fanart on this site! And it's very cute! The Abyss and Destiny art are mixed into the same catagory together, which is part of the reason why I'm recommending for both series, but it's also really cute stuff. It's often chibi or pairings I don't see nearly enough of (like Guy/Luke) and not really a ton here, but... enough to make it a worthwhile distraction for a bit. As for the Harutoki art, it's more of the same cute, almost water-color-style painting, using bright colors and cute designs to make me really quite like the artist's work. And, finally, the reason I stumbled over the site in the first place--the REBORN! fanart, which is sometimes a little shakey, but overall is quite solid. The artist does a really good Tsuna especially, but a damn good Gokudera as well. Her Gokudera/Tsuna is super-cute, which isn't a pairing I was expecting to find here, but am delighted at nonetheless. In the more recent art, the artist has gotten really good at drawing these characters, her lines smoothed out and tightened up and there's one of kidlet Gokudera and kidlet Tsuna playing on a swing that's just fantastic. I love. ♥ (Gen for Abyss and Destiny and Harutoki, some Gokudera/Tsuna for REBORN!.)

- 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! - GRN [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I went back and forth on this site for awhile, since the artist is really talented and does some cool stuff, but her Gokudera often feels somehow off to me. But, I was curious enough to keep going through the gallery and I do like what she does with the Gokudera/Tsuna pairing, the art itself is actually really strong and there are a lot of details. Every so often, there'll be one or two illustrations that I really like or a pose so sweet that I'll go all dorkishly melty or a hotass Gokudera. Ultimately, I liked the site enough to recommend it, even if I would put a caveat or two on it for other people. (Gokudera/Tsuna.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - K-dot [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - There's not as much illustration-art here (versus comics, versus oekaki/log sketches, etc.) as I would have liked, but the artist has such a cute style that I find myself not really minding all that much. Her art style is kind of that messy sort of sketch that looks really pretty and has a light, airy feeling, even when the characters are obviously going through hard times, which is a style I'm really partial to. Plus, her Gokudera looks fantastic and it's Tsuna/Gokudera! The comics on the site are so cute, so they're worth a look through if you're a fan of the pairing, I think. ♥ The site is worth it for the maid!Gokudera illustration alone, though, imo. XD That and some of the illustrations on the log page, there are some smoking images there. *__*<3 (Tsuna/Gokudera, Bel/Gokudera.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - TNK... [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - You know, strangely enough, it wasn't the color art on this site that won me over, it was the sketches section, with the artist's b&w stuff that I really liked. There are some really fantastic little pieces in those galleries, the lines are just a smidge messy, but in the way that makes them look prettier. The artist clearly favors Gokudera, but I like that there's a solid selection of just about all the characters--one of my favorite pieces was actually of Xanxus in one of the more recent pages. ....also, the Tsuna/Gokudera didn't hurt my feelings at all, some of the sketches were really, really cute! I had fun with this site, it was a nice little stop. <3 (Some Tsuna/Gokudera, some other, some gen.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN!/Inuyasha - choeX [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I wavered a little on this site, it was cute, but I was sort of in the mood for Tsuna/Gokudera more than anything. But the Gokudera solo illustration was pretty and there was a very canon-esque style to the artist's work and then there was this really sweet rooftop Tsuna/Gokudera doujinshi and I was kind of caving. But what really did me in was that there was a Dino/Hibari illustration on the site, too! *flails* And it was kind of super hot, too. ♥ It's the only one (that I saw--well, except they do show up in a later comic) on the site, but it was enough to push me over the edge just enough, and decide that I liked this site. It's primarly a Gokudera fansite, it's got a lot of standalones with him and then a bunch of the usual Gokudera pairings, but what sells it is that the artist's style is very close to canon-esque at times with the character and then just really cute when she does her own thing. Most of the art is also doujinshi-like comics/pages, but they're strong enough and there's enough of them that I liked the site a lot. As for the Inuyasha art, I had planned to just pass by that section, it's been ages since I felt the urge to look at art for the series, but I liked the artist's REBORN! work enough that I got curious. And as;dlfkjaslkj it was so pretty! The artist's Inuyasha and Miroku especially looked really fantastic, so I caved. XD Her wet!Miroku, which is the first illustration that I saw, is especially so pretty. *__* (Some Tsuna/Gokudera, some Yamamoto/Gokudera, a little other, some gen for REBORN!. Some Miroku/Inuyasha, but a lot of gen, too.)
