[ when it hurts to see a friends' tears ]
With no parents at home, the only one Yota Moteuchi has to answer to is himself. But there's a downside to being all alone in a big house in Tokyo -- for one thing, it's awfully lonely.
[ when your own heart's breaking ]
A day spent with Moemi, the girl at school he likes, seems to bring them closer together, but that's when she make him a teraful confession: "There's a guy at school I like, but he doesn't like me back."
[ i'm here for you ]
Out wandering the streets, Yota looks up to see a shop he'd never noticed before: Gokuraku, an in"paradise" or "bliss." Nervous he'll be spotted checking out the "adult" section, Yota quickly pulls a video off the shelf, one that looks promising, but not too promising... Video Girl Ai.
