Video Girl Ai
This short OAV series tries to be two things at once: it begins as a wistful coming-of-age romance (with echoes of Cyrano de Bergerac in Youta's love-by-proxy for Moemi), and then a metaphysical exploration of the pain and sacrifice that goes into true love, which reminded me more than a bit of the last two Evangelion episodes. Sounds promising, right? The series almost succeeds brilliantly in both, but I thought the transition between the two "modes" (from episode 4 to 5) was a bit jarring, and I found the metaphysical/fantasy aspect somewhat underwhelming, though it tries hard with visceral, graphic symbolism to be a soaring, meaningful conclusion. I was very impressed, on the other hand, with the depth of feeling and tenderness shown in the first four episodes--it was rarely sappy or cheesy, and the humor Amano Ai provided livened things up a bit before it got too full of angst (something Evangelion needed from time to time). Again, Youta's plight seems very similar to Cyrano's pursuit of Roxanne in certain ways, only Cyrano never had to put up with Amano Ai . . .

I love the beginning and ending songs--they set the mood of the show so perfectly.

Overall a series well worth watching, if only for the great music, good storytelling, and compelling characters.

A very good romantic comedy series, although it does dive drastically into a tragic drama within the last two episodes, which is a bit of a letdown considering the rather contrived ending that's more preachy about the power of love than it is touching. Nevertheless, it is a worthwhile series to watch, although I did enjoy Masakazu's other work: DNA^2, much more.

Very heartwarming series, and pretty funny, too. It's about time someone picked this anime up and will be releasing it in the spring. This is a must see.

A tad short... still enjoyable though. One can only wonder why no one decided to pick this one up; it's nothing too intense or offensive....
