After a crushing rejection, the heartbroken Youta Moteuchi trudges home. On his way, a dimly lit video store catches his eye, and he ends up purchasing a "video girl" tape meant to ease the hearts of lonely men. However, when he tries to play it in his broken VCR, a beautiful girl leaps out of his TV and lands on his bed. Calling herself Ai Amano, she looks like a golden opportunity for Youta to finally experience true love—that is, until her personality, now troubling thanks to the broken VCR, shows through. Despite her flaws, however, Ai wholeheartedly promises she will ensure Youta finds happiness and true love in his life.

Video Girl Ai follows the daily life of a teenage boy and his pursuit of a fulfilling romance. With the help of his virtual guardian angel, Youta sets forth to find the girl of his dreams.

There is SOOOOO much character development in this the entire story basically evolves around ...

(these comments were made by someone who has NOT read the manga so they are totally and completely just based on the anime)
as it is about some OVAs I decided to venture into this work for being fast. I did not regret it, I like anime with those old traits of the 90's, I love the truth.
The story is somewhat cliche, girl who will help the boy to conquer the girl he likes but end up falling in love. I was left with some doubts at the end of the type "takashi and moemi he saw in that world were real or was just to ...

Time for another episode of highly obscure anime reviews! Today I am going to talk about Video Girl Ai, which is one of those instances of a show or movie that had a small cult following for a couple years after it was released but quickly became forgotten. The movie equivalent of Video Girl Ai in terms of small, cult films that became highly obscure with time would be something like "Zorro the Gay Blade" or "Buddy Holly: Six String Samurai".


The plot starts out with the cliche premise of a hapless loser named Yota trying to get a girlfriend and constantly failing. Yota is ...
