You should have posted in the 'recommendations' section:
http://myanimelist.net/forum/index.php?board=16

and I can't really think of any series that relate to Reborn.

Baccano! is about the mafia and gangsters. It's nothing like Hitman Reborn! but you may like it.

Are you the DemonicSoul from AE?

*** Topic Moved ***

(As much as I don't want to bump this having moved it so late... records and such... and... yeah. Reason should be obvious if you... you know... read the thread.)

Strictly speaking, the only "mafia" theme anime I know of are Baccano and Hitman Reborn. Since I assume mafia is expandable to organized crime in general...

I'll give a second to Gungrave.

Also try...
Speed Grapher
Heat Guy J
Ghost in the Shell
Cowboy Bebop

There's also one about Yakuza/gang warfare in Japan, the title currently evades me.

Black Lagoon is not directly about mafia, though the main characters work for the Russian Mafia, and in the second season the Russian Mafia become a vital part of the story.

I'd go with Heat Guy J. The worst that can happen if you'll hate it. :p It's worth a viewing.

Hmm... ok, if the center-point isn't crime that makes things more simple. And a lot different from what I was thinking, heh.

Try one of these:
Flame of Recca
Yuu Yuu Hakusho
Konjiki no Gash

Though I haven't seen Hitman Reborn, if you re looking for mafia/underworld subject matter I highly recommend Cowboy Bebop, Phanto: Requiem for the Phantom, Darker than Black, and Black Lagoon

Timestaps are cool. I love timestamps. They let you know whether a thread was created almost five whole years ago.
Somewhere, there is an unplugged toaster sitting on a Coleman stove.

Does it feel lonely?

Baccano and Phantom: requiem for the phantom.
Also in Hunter x Hunter 2011 there is an arc focused on mafia (Yorkshin City).
