Midjourney has released a fresh new anime mode named niji. This anime mode has been created in collaboration with games developer Spellbrush, known for their viral internet meme site waifulabs.com. The new Niji mode produces high-quality illustration styles and anime aesthetics within Midjourney. The beta version for Niji was previously invite only, but it’s now open to all to use and enjoy.
This new introduction will be popular with anime fans making it easier than ever to create many variations of anime and manga styled characters or create anime-influenced environments and objects.
Midjourney announced on discord that the new mode features:
- It has vastly more knowledge of anime, anime styles, and anime aesthetics
- It’s great at dynamic and action shots, and character-focused compositions in general
How to activate Niji Mode?
The Niji anime mode is only currently available on discord via Midjourney server or Nijis own server. You can use it within Midjourney or invite the bot to your own server. To use Niji mode simply type —niji after your prompt. Alternatively, you can just select niji from the /settings menu. Niji not only creates beautiful illustrative styles but also amazing 3d art.
What does —niji mean?
The name niji can mean rainbow or 2D in Japanese.
Using the U1, U2, U3, and U4 buttons, you can upscale your creations. You can also use the V1, V2, V3, and V4 buttons to create variations.
–ar 2:3 and –ar 3:2 refer to the aspect ratios. This is great for cinematic landscape (3:2) or poster-like (2:3) effects. Currently you cannot use any other aspect ratios.
It has always been possible to create anime art in Midjourney. Especially since the introduction of Midjourney 4. But what’s great about this new mode is that you can combine image references with an anime style, allowing you to convert objects or people into anime art, which is pretty cool!
