Based on Katsura Masakazu’s manga, it originally focused on Yota Moteuchi, who hires a video from the ‘Paradise’ video store, only for the ‘video girl’ in the video, Ai Amano, to come to life.
The new series follows on from the manga. Updated to 2018, Sho Moteuchi (Shuhei Nomura) is living with his uncle Moteuchi (Shigeyuki Totsugi) following the divorce of his parents. Upon finding his uncle’s broken VCR, he attempts to repair it, only for Video Girl Ai (Nogizaka46’s Nanase Nishino) to appear on screen… and then step out of the screen.
Directed by Kazuaki Seki the series also stars Marie Iitoyo, Hiroya Shimizu and Karen Otomo.
Denei Shoujo ~VIDEO GIRL AI 2018~ will air on TV Tokyo on 13 January 2018, but will stream exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in Japan one week before broadcast.
