Ed Sheeran and anime aren’t two words that usually go together but today that isn’t the case! For his newest single “Bad Habits,” he collaborated with long-time fan and artist Rui Ikeda to create a special music video for the song that Warner Music Japan began streaming on Wednesday.
The video features a young woman falling in love with a vampire that likes to enjoy the wild nightlife that can be found in Tokyo.
Ikeda’s videos and animations were already popular on TikTok where she has previously professed to be a major fan of Ed’s music. This isn’t the first time Ed Sheeran has worked with a manga artist to create an animated music video either, having previously worked with Yoriko Hoshi to create a music video for his song “Supermarket Flowers.”
