Storyline

Keiko Nadachi is a substitute weather-girl for Michiko Kawai on J-TV. As a way of signing off, she hikes up her skirt and flashes her underwear at the audience. This move makes her an instant cult TV figure and a celebrity. Then Kaori comes back to work and an all-out war erupts between the two of them, with an old high school flame of Keiko's trapped in the middle. Written by Serdar Yegulalp <syegul@ix.netcom.com>

A very Japanese, but also very entertaining sexploitation movie
19 June 2006 | by (Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

This is a very Japanese movie, and as such, much of the satirical humor was lost on me. Still you can tell that it is a very wry and clever movie that doesn't insult its audience by assuming that they will watch anything as long as there are enough naked women it--something very unusual for a sexploitation film from ANY country. The movie concerns a Keiko, substitute weather girl, high-wire karate expert, and chronic masturbator who manages to take the regular weather girls place by flashing her panties on the air. This somehow leads her to the top of the struggling network. The unfortunate former weather girl has to become her personal (topless)maid whose job includes licking the soap bubbles off her body after she takes a bath in her private suite. There's also some weird dominatrix scene involving a male ad. exec. who tries unsuccessfully to get Keiko fired, and, of course, a musical number or two.

So far, so sexploitative, but then the plot kicks in when the Paris-educated daughter of the elderly station owner shows up and gets the weather girl fired via a sex scandal (apparently flashing your panties--or lack thereof--on live TV is not considered scandalous in Japan). The movie then quickly descends into bizarro/manga territory as Keiko teams up with a male admirer (who, outside of Japan,would be called a stalker) to take supernatural revenge by "harnessing the power of the weather" in an elaborate ritual involving a thunderstorm, a lightning rod, self-flagellation, and of course much more female masturbation and gratuitous nudity. Still it is a pretty enjoyable film and, if nothing else, you're pretty unlikely to see anything like it again (at least outside of Japan).
