This is what happens when people on the internet get bored.
You may have seen photos of celebrities, politicians, or even your friends looking like Sailor Moon rejects lately, a trend that’s been widely popular in China since 2008 but has now taken over the world.
Blame Meitu, a photo-editing app that allows users to “beautify” their photos through makeover features with names like Beauty Retouch, Blemish Remover, Slimming, Eye enhancer, and countless other filters, stickers, and editing features.
Meitu users recently spiked in numbers when fans of the Korean drama “Goblin” went crazy for the app with it’s Goblin sword sticker.
But what attracts people to Meitu is the “Hand-drawn” feature that transforms you into a kawaii-looking anime character. It comes with different filters such as Angelic, Blossoms, Fairy Tale, Mermaid, and Petals.
People have tried it out with celebrities and the results are really… kawaii!

We can probably all agree, Donald Trump looks better here — how we wish we can make his decisions and his attitude “cute” too.
Can we also have an app for that?
Looks like Hillary Clinton is channeling Miss Universe winners here:
