Yota's heart is thoroughly broken one afternoon, when Moemi, the love of his life confesses her love for his best friend Takashi. With a hope of cheering himself up, he rents a video, "Video Girl Ai" from a strange rental shop called "Gokuraku" ("Paradise"), which he's never noticed before on his way home. While playing it on his dad's broken VCR, the girl in the video practically jumps out of the screen into his world. Her mission; to cheer up Yota at all cost and eventually, bring him closer to Moemi. However, as a result of the the faulty VCR, Ai begins to experience feelings forbidden to a "Video Girl," and ends up falling in love with Yota himself. Now, Yota must choose between the girl, who till this point, he thought was the love of his life, or the girl who's sole purpose was to bring him happiness, joy and love into his life. A great romantic comedy with beautiful original artwork with a stunning soundtrack. Written by Htet Wonn Thaw Tar <Htetwtt@gmail.com>

A true gem
4 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

You don't have to be a anime fan to appreciate the greatness of Video girl Ai". The anime version is only about six episodes and covers only the first two-three books,but it cannot be missed since everything,from the main theme to the animation,to the ending song is beautiful.

When I saw Video girl ai for the first time I was 16,just like the majority of the characters.And I was so impressed by the fact Masakazu Katsura was so able to represent all the feelings boys and girls at that age have I immediately bought all the 17 volumes,and after reading all of them in bout three days I was completely speechless,overwhelmed by so much greatness,so much touching moments,so much perfection.

It has to be,in my opinion,if not the best manga ever at least one of the best.And the Anime version is none to less...when the beautiful ending song will begin you will find yourself asking for more,and more,and more of Ai,Yota,Moemi and Takashi.

You will love all of them.And you will fall in love with Ai,you have my word.
