Ppcocaine’s “Anime Lover” song sparked TikTok’s latest dance trend.
Rapper Ppcocaine’s “Anime Lover” lyrics kickstarted a new TikTok dance trend. More than 150 thousand videos currently include the song, which @lansdelsreys uploaded and shortened on TikTok.
Users begin the dance by opening and closing their arms, synchronizing their movements to the lyrics, “She watch anime / Catch her heart like Kisame.” Then, they make a grabbing motion toward the camera while the lyrics, “Flew to Japan today / Waterbender, she swam my way,” continue. The audio ends with, “Noticе me Senpai!”
One of the “she watch anime” TikToks features a high school principal and his student participating in the dance trend together. “principal mr pritchard x lüh vice prezzy,” the caption said. “How did bro convince his principal to participate in such activities,” one user commented. Another added, “This is so cute.”

Some TikTok users are even switching the dance trend up. In a recent video posted by @jordyn_j3, she and her friend synchronized their movements while alternating covering their faces.
When ppcocaine sings, “Waterbender, she swam my way,” the duo makes a swimming motion directly at the camera. “Why was this fye,” someone commented, followed by a skull emoji.
“Anime Lover” isn’t ppcocaine’s first song used in a TikTok dance trend.
