Anime type. Ecchi Comedy

Nakadai Keiko used to be a glorified office lady at the local news station. Stodgy-looking, with her eyes hidden behind glasses, she seemed an unlikely fill-in for Michiko, the pretty weather reporter who had called in today.
Except that it's all a ruse. Off go the glasses and most of Keiko's clothes! Nakadai Keiko's saucy tactics in front of the camera get people wet even when it isn't raining, and she intends to keep it that way. The ratings are up, the new weather report girl's a superstar, and she's going to keep that fame no matter what it takes. Even if it means sabotaging Michiko's career live on-camera ... or worse!

Review

Can you believe this is from the same director as the first Pokemon movie?
No, I'm not kidding.
Seriously, Weather Report Girl is one of those sex comedies that just goes too far. The primary problem is that Keiko is a vindictive, sick, loose woman, and none of the other characters are any more likable, either. Even Keiko's whole "sexy" act comes off more as skanky, and any laughs that come from the plot are quickly replaced by groans and grumbles.
Really, that's the entire basis for this series, and everyone else either falls victim or cheers her on. It's pretty lame.
Granted, the "victims" are just as cretinous as Keiko is. Michiko is just as vindictive, attempting to use option #2 to get Keiko off the air, but instead (predictably) falling for her own trick. And there's the creepy stalker guy with the bite marks on his ... umm ...
*wince*
The first episode ends with a severely unfunny S&M scene, and it's on to episode two, with another rival, Kaori, and more sick and twisted shenanigans that inexplicably end in the female cast having rather badly-animated non-explicit sex. What the hell?
Oh, yes, and the technical specs. This anime looks terrible. Character designs are largely unattractive, and the whole thing just looks cheap. I imagine the budget couldn't have been any worse if the staff's only means of collecting funds was to chuck spare change at the treasurer standing in the corner, like at a THEM meeting.
Seriously, folks. Between the tacky outfits, the gross-out humor, and the horrendous animation, this is just not worth your time. Weather Report Girl is supposed to be a ecchi comedy, but it's neither sexy nor funny, and it's only worth renting if you are looking for shock value.
