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>

Very Touching Adult Romantic Comedy
23 February 2002 | by (Jeddah, Saudi Arabia) – See all my reviews

Yes, it's not for kids. But sure it's the best animated sensual romantic comedy I have ever seen!

Though the romantic plot is developing in a quick pace, but it doesn't lose its tenderness. And yes, there are a lot of nudity scenes, but they are so smoothly integrated with the romantic comic plot without exaggeration.

The colors and picture quality in the DVD version of are amazing. You can chose between "the good and funny" English dubbing or the original Japanese voicing with the English subtitle, which I enjoyed switching to sometimes.

You can find many animated romantic comedies in Disney library to watch with your children, but if you like animation, and if you like "grown up" romantic comedies, sure this one is what you are looking for.
