How to Get the AI Manga Filter on TikTok

The AI Manga (Anime) filter has taken over TikTok recently.

There are a ton of videos that use the filter—over 9.8 million videos.

You can use it on yourself, objects, and your friends.

If you use the filter on yourself, you’ll most likely be turned into an anime character.

However, there are multiple AI Manga filters on TikTok—so you need to get the right one.

Although the filter is available on multiple social media platforms, the original filter comes from TikTok.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to get the AI Manga filter on TikTok and how to use it (also known as the AI Anime filter/effect).
