What is Different Dimension Me?
Different Dimension Me is an AI website that turns an image into anime.
You can use a photo of yourself, your friend, or even animals.
For example, if you use a photo of yourself, the AI will generate an anime version of yourself.
This typically includes large eyes, a small mouth, and a small nose.
The AI was created by Tencent and launched on the QQ instant messaging service.
QQ is similar to WhatsApp/WeChat which targets the younger demographic in China.
Since its release, the tool started trending on other social media platforms.
For example, TikTok has its own filter called the “AI Manga” filter.
It’s almost an exact replica of Different Dimension Me.
You can use the filter on yourself, on an object, or on an existing photo from your gallery.
The filter was a hit on TikTok and over 9 million people posted videos using it.
Different Dimension Me examples
@Kiyothehero uploaded an image of Shrek and the AI turned it into an anime version of Shrek.
His jawline is more defined, his eyes are sharper, and his ears are turned into horns.
The post got over 50 likes and more than 10 retweets.
@MiroArt6 uploaded a picture of Saul Goodman from Better Call Saul.
Better Call Saul is a drama and crime series that’s part of the Breaking Bad franchise.
The AI turned Saul into a male anime character with pretty eyes and a fresh cut.
@TheMadnessTiger uploaded a famous oil painting called “Girl with a Pearl Earring” by Johannes Vermeer.
The AI transformed the painting into a blue-haired and blue-eyed Anime girl with a tiara.
However, the iconic pearl earring was erased from the photo.
How to get Different Dimension Me
Here’s how to get and use Different Dimension Me:
- Go to https://h5.tu.qq.com/web/ai-2d/cartoon/index.
- Select “我也要玩“ (which means “I want to play too”).
- Choose an existing photo from your device.
- Wait for the AI to generate the anime version of your photo.
Note: If the website is not working, it means that it’s under maintenance. You can use the TikTok AI Manga filter instead (they are both similar).
Different Dimension Me’s popularity is linked to the recent AI trends with ChatGPT, Midjourney, and Stable Diffusion.
Many people are trying to create an anime version of themselves using the AI.
Unfortunately, the AI does not support objects without faces.
If you’ve uploaded a photo without a face, you’ll get the “The user’s face was not detected. Please change the photo” error.
Controversies regarding the AI
The AI has been known to only turn people into a light skin, anime-version of themselves.
In other words, the AI does not take a person’s skin tone into account.
This means that people with a darker skin tone will also be turned into a light skin anime characters.
That said, the AI was only intended for the Chinese population because it was developed in China.
Hence, they did not expect people outside of China to use it.
It was created for the QQ app as a filter by Tencent, a Chinese technology company.
In addition, there aren’t many black characters in anime because they tend to only include Japanese characters (because they are in fact, made in Japan).
