The AI Anime trend is viral on Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, and other social media platforms.

On TikTok, many influencers are taking part in the trend.

Using the generator on a person will turn them into an anime character—with vibrant colors, perfect skin, and beautiful eyes.

There are multiple AI filters on TikTok—one of them is the anime filter.

In this guide, you’ll learn what is AI anime and the best AI anime generators on TikTok and other websites that are free.

What is an AI anime generator?

An AI anime generator will turn a photo of someone or an object into anime.

For example, if you upload a photo of yourself, you’ll be turned into an anime character.

The character will have perfect skin, large eyes, and a decent physique.

You can also use the generator on animals like a dog, cat, or hamster.

Most AI anime generators utilize Stable Diffusion, which is a model that’s capable of generating photo-realistic images based on text or image references.
