High school student Youta Moteuchi is so unpopular that his classmates have given him the nickname "Dateless." So it's no surprise when the love of his life, Moemi, is not interested in Youta but instead is in love with Youta's best friend, Takashi. Youta turns to a video rental shop for comfort, but little did he suspect that the shop was magical and that the cute girl on his rented tape would pop out of the television and try to fix his ruined love life!

Video Girl Ai was written by the mangaka that did I"S. This threw up all sorts of red flags, because I"S was really, really, really bad. This made me all the more surprised when VGA turned out to be great.

For starters, it's probably the only shonen romance I've ever read where I got the impression who the main character was going to end up with was really, truly up in the air. Hell, for a couple of short blinks, the "Main Character X Nobody" pairing was up for grabs.

The plot in itself is kind of generic, but that can be forgiven because the plot actually read more

Before writing this review I thought quite a bit and it would be difficult for me to give Video Girl Ai a score lower than 9. The manga is simply that good. I'll try to break it down a bit.

This is arguably the weakest aspect of Video Girl Ai. For the first ~20 chapters it's a beautiful story of finding love in the most unlikely of places and overcoming one's weaknesses for that love. Later, however, the manga somehow loses focus and bounces around more episodically, until we reach the well-deserved conclusion. This decrease in focus and shifts in narrative kind of undermine the finale, read more

The most unpopular guy imaginable suddenly becomes a Jesus and makes every living thing want his dick. Great. He just can't decide which one of them to fuck first. Not great. How did he overcome this then? In no way, whatsoever. The author tried to help him tho by adding new hoes who want his dick too, and some male characters who are more than willing to fuck these given hoes as a replacement for the mc, but it didn't really work out.

Apparently all of this happens because the point of this series is to "find one true love". The problem with this is that read more

"Video Girl Ai" is an interesting romantic/sci-fi manga in the style of Pinocchio. It's sort of every pubescent guy's fantasy: Striking out in the romance department? Taking comfort in the rental of a pornographic video? Wouldn't it be great if the chick in the video came out of the TV to assist you in finding love?! Well, that's what happens here.

Quirkiness and angst ensue amidst a story of love triangles, magic video tapes, (Google that if you must), and what it means to be human. Is it flesh and blood or genuine emotion that make us what we are? The story itself is the read more
