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.

TikTok user ‘jezkif,’ a.k.a. ‘Diamond Tester Kid,’ has gone viral after making a several part series in which he goes around to teachers in his school, testing their supposedly real diamond rings, and often delivering some less than desirable news.

Following TikTok’s rise to mainstream popularity after its switch over from musical.ly, it has become a hub for viral content. With its extraordinary number of bizarre filters, viral sounds, and addictive trends, just about everyone has given the app a go.

The content that thrives the best on TikTok, however, is certainly weird and wonderful. Some users even have gained followers in the millions by making fake Tom Holland accounts, confusing droves of fans.

But student ‘jezkif’ has achieved viral fame in the most unexpected way possible – by taking a diamond tester around his school, shedding some light on his teachers’ supposedly very expensive rings, with hilarious results.

TikToker goes viral for hilarious diamond reveals

In his first video of the series (which has now garnered 880,000 likes and over 5 million views), he approaches his teacher and asks, “You got a wedding ring right?” and “Do you think it’s real?”

The teacher replies with a confident, “Of course!” so jezkif quickly sets about testing the ring in question. “It’s real right?” she asks hopefully, but the monitor revealed the stone was in fact fake, leaving the teacher stunned.

Each video produced a new brilliant reaction from the teachers, initially being excited at the prospect of engaging with their student’s curiosity, and then immediately regretting it once the diamond detector revealed some unexpected results.

Tweets showcasing the hilarious work of the Diamond Tester Kid have also gone viral, with likes in the tens of thousands. One user said, “Yo this kid goes around testing his teacher’s wedding rings & I’m screaming, because most of them are fake.”

It’s safe to say that jexif’s videos has given millions of TikTok users a good chuckle, and no doubt has many eyeing up their own rings they previously thought to be real.
