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>

oddly sweet
5 December 1999 | by (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

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.
