What Is the AI Manga Filter on TikTok?

The trendy AI Managa filter on TikTok will transform your photos and videos into a manga vibe. The AI deep learning engine will analyze the video you provided, and generate anime avatar accordingly. Based on our test, it requires a clear human face presented. If you upload your cat or dog, it may not work. But if you are there with your pet, you will be surprised with the lovely anime moments.

Recent Trend: Use TikTok AI Manga Filter for Ghost Hunting

When playing around with the anime filter in TikTok, some users find the filter generates figures in the room, when there isn't a single soul in the camera.

It was a coincidence when people are trying to cartoonify their room, instead of taking selfies only. While some succeed to generate a manga style of their room, others find the resultant picture features unkown figures.

The practice soon goes viral, and everyone is trying to hunt the "Ghost" in the house with TikTok ai mange filter.

The mistake made by the AI anime algorithm has thus brought a funny byproduct for TikTokers. For instance, the lamp in the screenshots above was interpreted by the AI algorithm as a girl with yellow glowing hair. Interested in this ghost check trend? Point your camera towards the zoom, and let's go ghost hunting with TikTok AI manga now.

1. How to Use the AI Manga Filter on TikTok

AI Manga by Different Dimension Me

We used the Different Dimension Me AI generator twice for this picture. It turned out that each time it will create different manga. The second test has a hilarious error, where the AI wrongly treated the shadow dropped from the microphone as some kind of mask around the singer. Most importantly, both tests fail to generate the guitar for the artist.

Sometimes, it's fun to have such errors, because you never know how the AI will surprise you during this Reality to AI Manga process.
