Storyline

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>

Not about the TV version, but the Manga
4 February 2002 | by (Berne, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

Hi, i just want to tell you all that Video Girl Ai is really an enrichment to my daily literature. I've just seen one or two parts of the Anime Series, but I didn't understand anything cause it was japanese with chinese subtitles, so I didn't understand much of the story. But later I found the translated Manga and I must say that I could keep on reading the story on and on... The story is well told, the persons are fascinating and the way Masakazu Katsura is cutting off at the end of each manga is just brain-ripping! I just can't wait to read on and find out how it's gonna go on! So for those people who enjoy the story on TV, you should try to read the manga!
