Twitter photo comics were the platform for a six-panel post-breakup transformation meme earlier this year.

Using the tagline “you broke up with me ’cause that girl’s cuter?” (‘ano ko no hou ga kawaii kara’), the comics typically show a girl transforming herself from a bookish persona into a fully made-up “cute” version of herself.

Then, men started doing them too. And cats. And babies.

It all started with photo sets like this one:

▼ “You broke up with me ’cause that girl’s cuter? That’s fine, I’ll just get a new boyfriend!”

Quickly, things moved into comedic territory:

▼ “YOU BROKE UP WITH ME ‘CAUSE THAT GIRL’S CUTER? FINE, I’LL JUST GET A NEW BOYFRIEND!”

▼ “You broke up with me ’cause that girl’s cuter? No way, no way!!

▼ “You broke up with me ’cause that girl’s cuter?…Wait. Huh? I never ever had a boyfriend!”

▼ “You broke up with me ’cause that guy’s better looking? You need to get your eyes tested.”

Some were awesomely gender-bending:

▼ “You broke up with me ’cause that guy’s cooler? Fine, I’ll just get a new boyfriend!”

And some were just adorable.

▼ “You’re giving my little brother milk ’cause he’s cuter than me? Fine! I’ll just…eat this rice then!”

The cats are our favourites though:

▼ “You ditched me because she’s cuter? Fine, I’ll just…lie here and play dead.

▼ “You petted the other cat ’cause she doesn’t get angry or upset? Fine, I’ll turn into a monster!
