Ai gets her memory back!
Jun 04, 2007 by Deejay_Beta
In Volume 9 of Video Girl Ai: Cut Scenes, Ai finally gets all her memories back of her love for Yota. She kinda already suspected that in her past life she was in love with him, but now all her suspicions are confirmed and she's in a bind as to what to do with them because Yota is finally realizing his dream of being Moemi's boyfriend. Ai doesn't want to ruin anything that could develop between the two, but not only does she have to fight against her own selfish desires for Yota, her tape is rapidly running out of time. Her creator had given her additional playing time and even said he would make her human IF she could make a man fall in love with her. Perhaps getting to work one-on-one with Yota as she helps him finish a submission for a children's book contest might give her the opportunity to grow close to him again.
Volume 9 was one of the more enjoyable installments of this series because we get back to the root conflict that started it all. Namely, the fact that Ai, instead of helping Yota get the girl of his dreams, falls in love with him instead and complicates the whole situation. I always felt a little uncomfortable with the amnesiac Ai and was glad to see her go back to her old self. Without her presence, Yota had become a playboy jerk whose affections were pretty much blowing in the wind. I'm really curious as to how it will end. It's too bad it took about 5 volumes to get back to the main plot line instead of dwelling in shojoesque relationships without any advancement of plot.
