It occurred to me while reading that while I'd love to talk about it, some of you might not be very familiar with Pixiv, so I thought I'd give you guys a quick Pixiv 101.
The site is, essentially, Japan's answer to DeviantArt: a site for visual artists to share their work, much of which is fanart but quite a lot of which is original. I would also say that in my experience, the average quality of art on Pixiv is higher-- at least, I come across terrible pieces a lot less there --in spite of the nearly two million members of the site (1.8 million). There are over 10 million pieces of art on the site, and it gets about 20,000 submissions per day. (Smaller than DA, to be sure, which has 11 million members, over 100 million art pieces, and about 100,000 submissions per day).
right here. To browse for fanart of your favorite works, you'll want to copy and paste the Japanese names of those works. Or you could check out these artists who I think you'll like:
And that's your brief introduction to Pixiv. I'll have to see if my Kinokuniya might import the magazine for me; I'm curious to see what it's like.
