High-school student Yota 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 Yota but instead is in love with Yota's best friend, Takashi. Yota 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!
The playback time on Ai's tape is winding down, and the only plan to make her human and save her from termination involves risking Yota's life! Ai, resigned to her fate and unwilling to put Yota's life on the line, wants to fade away quietly and give Yota a magic pill that will spare him the pain of remembering their doomed love...but the power of passion can't be overestimated! Everything comes together in the stunning climax of Video Girl Ai!
