Katsura Masakazu's classic mange Video Girl Ai will get a live-action TV drama adaption under the title "Denei Shoujo ~VIDEO GIRL AI 2018~," it will begin airing on TV Tokyo in January 2018, and Nogizaka46 member Nishino Nanase will play the leading actress "Amano Ai", an artificial life form from Video Tape which is designed to comfort people who is hurting. Nishino Nanase has cut off 20 cm of her hair for the TV drama.

In original manga (Ai Arc), Amano Ai was a video girl who was supposed to comport and give support to the story's main character Moteuchi Yota, however she became defective because of Moteuchi Yota's Video Cassette Recorder malfunction, and then she fell in love with Moteuchi Yota....

The new TV drama's story is set in 2018, 25 years after the original manga, Moteuchi Shou (cast by Nomura Shuhei) is a high school student. After his parents divorced, he begins to live with his uncle. At school, he has a crush on his classmate Nanami, but, she has good feelings toward Shou's best friend Tomoaki... One day, he finds an old broken video cassette recorder at his uncle’s house. Shou repairs the video cassette recorder and suddenly a girl appears on the screen, she introduces herself as Video Girl Ai. The girl then steps out of the screen...

    Ai became human already, unless this is a parallel plot line. Ai is very expressive and cheerful, a far fetch from Nanase's character, maybe she can pull it off.

    What the...?! It's Sayuri Matsumura who looks exactly like a real world version of a Masakatsu Katsura girl! They cast the wrong Nogizaka member!!! XD

    i've read the manga a long time ago and there's a live-action that followed that where there's a nude part in the role but really?!It would probably be the tamer version.
