Synopsis: Keiko Nakadai has long toiled in obscurity at a local TV station. Thus, when Keiko is called to stand in for the regular weather girl Michiko Kawai, Keiko decides that she's not about to pass up this golden opportunity. As the weather report rolls in, Keiko flashes a little panty for her viewers... leaving everybody totally shell-shocked! Unbuttoning her blouse a few notches below decent level, lifting her skirt up, up, and away... Keiko's titillating stunts are just what the dwindling ratings need! Keiko gets the chairman's nod in no time. And so the prim and proper Michiko is kicked out, and Hurrricane Keiko takes over. But Michiko's not about to give up her place without a fight! Things get more complicated with the arrival of the high society girl Kaori Shimomura. Back from her stint in France, Kaori's classy and refined approach to the news earns her a pretty big following as well... and Keiko finds herself more challenged than ever! It's an all-out battle for the number one spot, and Keiko will do anything and everything to win...
Review: Satirical and outrightly hilarious, Weather Report Girl pokes fun at the lengths some people will go to for a spot in the limelight.
Excellent characterization is definitely what makes this title. Each major player is well-developed and portrayed in a humorously exaggerated manner -- especially Keiko Nakadai. Little did anyone suspect that a smart, savvy, and sexy bombshell had been hiding underneath the homely facade of thick glasses and frumpy clothes. Keiko's iron will, determination, and seemingly endless supply of guts make her a true force to reckon with, as those who cross her path soon discover. In the meantime, Michiko's passive attitude hides her vengeful motives; Kaori's demeanor is more refined -- although she approaches situations with more restraint, she is just as fired up as Keiko is. As a result, character interactions often result to a lot of funny dialogues, occurrences, and situations.
The artwork is generally okay, albeit somewhat dated and a bit different from what we are used to. The characters look longer and leaner than usual. With regards to sexual content, WRG consists mostly of underwear (think bras and panties) shots, a little boob exposure, masturbation scenes, and some girl-to-girl action. The wacky background music also highlights the show's mood perfectly. Unfortunately, I was not able to check out the English dubbing because I watched the subtitled version. Overall, WRG is more of a comedy than a hentai feature. It's a highly entertaining and fun romp though, and I'd readily recommend it to anyone with a sense of humor.
Miscellanies: Interestingly enough, seiyuu Rika Fukami (also Sailorvenus in Sailormoon) plays the classy Kaori Shimomura. Weather Report Girl is also available as a live action hentai feature entitled "Weather Woman".
