Anything v3 is a very popular stable diffusion model for generating anime images. Two newer versions came out recently. Some people are questioning the authenticity of these two models. Authenticity aside, I am going to do a quick comparison of these three models.
Before we start, the url to download the new models is here.
A vae for v4 is included. There is no vae for v4.5, so I used v4 vae with v4.5 in the comparison. I used Automatic1111’s webui to generate these images. I set the vae to be loaded automatically in the settings section so the correct vae is loaded with each model. This is how it looks like in the model directory. The anything-v4.5.vae.pt is just a copy of the anything-v4.0.vae.pt.

Select X/Y plot from the Script dropdown. Enter the parameters according to this screenshot:
Click on Generate to generate the images. Here is the plot:
Personally, I like the v4.5 the most because it’s better at generating semi-realistic images. What is your favorite model after you have tried them?
