The anime filter is becoming super popular on TikTok, with many people using it to see how they would look as an anime character — but how do you actually do it?

Anime is a Japanese style of film or TV animation, popularized the world over by shows such as My Hero Academia and Attack on Titan, among others.

With the ever-growing popularity of anime, fans have discovered a way to make anime versions of themselves, and it’s fast becoming a popular trend on TikTok. Here’s how you can do it too, to see how you would look in the style of your favourite anime shows.

How to use the anime filter on TikTok

It’s not difficult to find the anime filter and use it on TikTok, but it does require you to do some work outside of the app and bring it over.

Here’s what you’ve got to do if you want to make a TikTok using the popular anime filter:

  • Open Snapchat (create an account if you haven’t already).
  • Search ‘Anime Style’ in the Filters search bar.
  • Select the Anime Style filter. If you can’t find it, click this link on your smartphone.
  • Press ‘Unlock for 48 hours’.
  • Film however many videos you like using the Anime filter.
  • Save them to your Camera Roll.
  • Upload the video(s) to TikTok.

Obviously, while TikTok itself has such a huge range of filters, some of them can only be located — at least until new ones are made — in external apps.

For example, the ‘Where is your Soulmate?’ TikTok trend earlier in 2020 used a filter that could only be found on Instagram. But this only means that TikTok users have even more options when creating content for the app.

How long this anime filter trend sticks around on TikTok remains to be seen, so you might want to get your videos recorded and start storing them in your drafts before it’s too late.

TikToker Nessa Barrett slams TalentX’s Michael Gruen: “He hates me”

Nessa Barrett has slammed TalentX manager Micheal Gruen in the third installment of Josh Richards and Dave Portnoy’s new podcast BFFs in which they talk about all things TikTok drama.

The first episode of the podcast sent fans into a frenzy after the Barstool Sports’ president claimed that Nessa Barrett had found her fame through dating Josh Richards. The host claimed he was “in the middle of a TikTok war” and fuelled drama by tweeting memes and jokes about the situation.

But for their third episode, they actually invited Nessa herself onto the show, and while there appeared to be no beef between Dave and the popular TikToker, it was revealed that the manager of TalentX Michael Gruen and Nessa are feuding.

Fans of Nessa will know that the pair don’t necessarily like each other. After the drama surrounding the first episode, Michael weighed in with his own opinion on an Instagram fan page for the star.

He wrote, “I must’ve missed the memo that Nessa – or anyone for that matter – deserves ‘the world’. The earth is inhabited by ~7B people…last I checked Nessa is just one of them (along with myself and everyone else).” Nessa did not publicly reply but she did unfollow him on Instagram.

It turns out that their beef runs a little deeper. After remaining quite held back with her answers for the first half of the podcast, Nessa suddenly had words to say once Micheal was mentioned by Dave.

(Topic starts at 27:00)

She said, “I do not like him. He’s rude. He hates me. He has it out for me. I think he’s jealous because he’s secretly in love with Josh which is no problem but yeah he has called me ugly to my face and in front of people”

Josh attempted to defend Michael, and said that the word “Ugly” wasn’t used, but instead that “he said my taste in women was not good.”

Nessa continued, “He has said like the beginning of quarantine that he wants to send me on a one-way ticket to Mexico and I’ve been sat there alone and I was 17 like he is just rude…I just don’t waste my energy on him I just don’t like him he’s a terrible person” She also added and emphasized that “he is a certified a**hole.”

Michael is yet to react to Nessa’s brutal takedown, but given his reputation, he is likely to respond very soon.
