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.

Strangely sad and touching romantic comedy/drama that should have gone on for more episodes. Pretty character designs, although Niimai-kun's hair is eccentric to the point of ridicule. Somehow the total effect of the show transcends the often bathetic and inane goings-on; this probably has a lot to do with Megumi Hayashibara's great voice acting, so I don't know what it would be like dubbed. Definitely worth checking out if subtitled.
