Snapchat has now moved on from letting users see what they might look like as the opposite sex in its 2019 viral filter to turning them into living, breathing anime characters.
The new filter, called “Anime Style,” transforms the user’s picture or video into an anime character based on their facial structure, as explained by Republic World.

After the effects are applied, the user can then save the picture or video and share it on other social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. It is also popular on TikTok, Fast Company reported.
