@ahegaoangeI has offered Twitter users a nice deal: pictures of their anime doppelgängers in exchange for retweets. And it's been paying off for both sides. So far, @ahegaoangeI has got 25.2K retweets and their authors have received an interesting selection of their lookalikes. Needless to say, the initiator of the exchange can't keep up with the demand, but he's doing a mighty fine job considering the amount of "requests" he's receiving.
Ever wanted to see what an animated version of you would look like? Retweet this post and who knows, maybe you'll win the lottery and @ahegaoangeI will pick you as his next lucky subject.
"I've been interested in anime since I was about 5," Angel, the guy behind the project, told Bored Panda. He said his fascination with the genre started with the show was Bleach. "I stayed up really late one night watching Adult Swim and [it] came on and I loved it because I thought the action was really cool."
Angel likes romance anime the most. "Honestly, there's this one called Oregairu, it's my favorite," he said. "And this hilarious one called Ben-To. I could literally watch those all day."
Interestingly, Angel has already promised people to find their anime lookalikes in exchange for retweets on his old Twitter accounts but they've never gotten this big. "This was honestly a shocker but I got the idea from someone else who tweeted this 2, maybe 3 years ago," he explained.
"I usually just get the picture of the person first and I've seen so many anime that a character will literally pop up in my mind the moment I see them most of the time and I'll basically assign them that character."
