Wide Aspect Ratios
With Midjourney Niji V5, Midjourney quietly added another fantastic feature to its new version, the ability to generate anime graphics in broad aspect ratios. This feat was impossible with earlier Niji models.
You can see an image created in 24:10 cinematic widescreen.
Niji 5 – Stylize Parameter
As Midjourney Niji 5 became popular with Midjourney users, many advancements have been made in this version gradually. Recently they came up with their new update, the “stylize” parameter.
The stylized parameter auto-tunes the image according to the value you put with your prompt. The value will incorporate the essence in the image to depict the actual aura of anime.
The value of the stylize parameter ranges from 0 to 1000. From which 100 value is the default. You can use “–stylize (value)” or “–s (value)” at the end of your prompt.
Let’s use it in the prompt to get some more idea of it.
/imagine prompt: a creature made out of skin and wires, in the style of futuristic digital art, alien worlds, soft brushstroke realism, chad knight, elihu vedder, ahmed morsi, distorted figures –ar 5:4 –s 250
/imagine prompt: a creature made out of skin and wires, in the style of futuristic digital art, alien worlds, soft brushstroke realism, chad knight, elihu vedder, ahmed morsi, distorted figures –ar 5:4 –s 500
/imagine prompt: a creature made out of skin and wires, in the style of futuristic digital art, alien worlds, soft brushstroke realism, chad knight, elihu vedder, ahmed morsi, distorted figures –ar 5:4 –s750
/imagine prompt: a creature made out of skin and wires, in the style of futuristic digital art, alien worlds, soft brushstroke realism, chad knight, elihu vedder, ahmed morsi, distorted figures –ar 5:4 –s 800

/imagine prompt: a creature made out of skin and wires, in the style of futuristic digital art, alien worlds, soft brushstroke realism, chad knight, elihu vedder, ahmed morsi, distorted figures –ar 5:4 –s 1000
The primary thing you can notice in all the images is with every increasing aspect ratio, the prominence of the character increase. The face of the creature gets more tuned in every highly stylized value.
You can try different “stylize” values with various prompts to get more varied results.
The other most important feature in the Midjourney Niji 5 is the /describe command, which can generate a prompt for your provided image.
Midjourney Niji 5 Style Parameters
As you have used the “stylize” parameter in Niji version 5, it’s time to explore more new parameters launched by Midjourney Niji 5.
“Style” is another new parameter launched in Niji 5, which completely changes the impact of an image by using the type of style parameter in your prompt.
You can access these styles using “–style” at the end of your prompt with other parameters and the style you want your image to generate.
Styles to switch between V5
When you give a prompt to Midjourney without any style, it has a default style that works invisibly. If you add style to your prompt, your image will be fine-tuned, whereas the image’s appearance will be enhanced.
Here’s a guide to using style and the Midjourney-generated images from Niji version 5.
Midjourney Niji 5 Style Cute
The “style cute” already refers to its wording that the image generated from this style will have a softer and more adorable look.
Whatever you prompt the Niji version 5 with –style cute, you will be delivered the image with a charming character along with playful details. You can discriminate against this style by its bright colors, soft lines, and cheerful expressions.
How about analyzing the image generated using –style cute from Niji version 5?
/imagine prompt: a kid twirling on the stage wearing a colorful frock, short hair, big eyes, full smile ar 1:1 –style cute
Midjourney Niji 5 Style Expressive
The expressive style will impart a unique layout to the image. You will get the bold appearance of the picture by using this style as it will express the drama more prominently, with dark colors and more sophistication in the image.
This style is perfect for illustrations because it will give vibrant visuals and powerfully impact the design.
Let’s look at the image of style expressive.
/imagine prompt: a giraffe peaking into a horse stable trying to annoy, daylight, monkeys, kangaroos, bears, fruits, forest –ar 1:1 –style expressive
Midjourney Niji 5 Style Original
As mentioned earlier, when you don’t enter style in your prompt, Midjourney will default enter style to your Niji prompt.
Style Original is the default style which gives the image a realistic turn. It was launched at last but set as default due to its remarkable results.
Here’s an example of the style original in an image.
/imagine prompt: a girl sitting and playing the guitar on a subway, blond hair, surrounded by people –style original
Midjourney Niji 5 Style Scenic
Like other styles, The scenic style mainly focuses on the backgrounds. Using this style, you can get cinematic shots, central character moments, and beautiful scenery in your image.
The scenic style gives an image of lush flora and height to your shot with a lightning spark. Overall, the image’s context will provide a fantastic overview.
Let’s dive into the scenic image generated from Niji 5.
/imagine prompt: a glass box in an ice-covered area –ar 1:1 –style scenic
You can see the use of styles in every image and the results that every generated image gives an entirely different look. The cute style gives a charming kido look to the idea, and the Expressive style expresses the sharp faces of animals trying to peek into the horse stable.
The scenic style gives a great glass jar on the ice floor with a sharp overall glassy look to the image. In contrast, the original style provides bright color for the image, and the girl’s enthusiasm on her face represents more vibrant visuals.
Significant advancements in anime creation have been made since Midjourney released Niji version 5. Adding the Style parameters and Stylize value is a noteworthy improvement in Niji 5. Niji V5 has continued to improve due to its popularity among Midjourney users.
