Weather Report Girl (お天気お姉さん Otenki Onēsan ?) is a two-episode anime erotic OVA comedy series originally released in Japan in August 1994 by Toho and released in the U.S. on VHS in September 1996 and DVD August 2005 by The Right Stuf International. It is based on a softcore erotic manga by Tetsu Adachi. The story revolves around Keiko Nakadai, who in the beginning is an Office Lady working at the perpetually last-place ATV television network. However, she is chosen to fill in for weather reporter Michiko Kawai for one night, and Keiko takes full advantage of her opportunity by blatantly flashing her panties while on live television. The incident causes the evening news ratings to jump, and because of ATV's desperation to escape the ratings cellar, Keiko is subsequently promoted to full-time weather reporter, displacing Michiko in the process. The rest of the series focuses on her rivalries with co-workers jealous of and insulted by the nature of her success.

The humor in Weather Report Girl is full sexually oriented sorority style humor, aimed primarily at young women. The protagonist, Keiko, is depicted as being exhibitionistic, first using her sex appeal to rise to the position of weather girl by flashing her bra and panties, and maintaining her position by frequently wearing lingerie while on the air. She's also very resourceful, always one step ahead of her rivals' various revenge schemes. Keiko is also extraordinarily vengeful, humiliating Michiko on the air by spiking her tea with laxatives after Michiko had attempted a similar tactic against her. Finally, she is sexually domineering, effectively enslaving Michiko, who due to the on-air incident would have otherwise been fired had she not agreed. The second episode introduces Kaori Shimamori, a reporter who uses her position as a member of the "Diet" at Keiko's expense. The manga which was sterilized from 1992 to 1994, starred all three main characters with a simple plot where the women would try to fight for power and authority at the station by performing sexual acts and domination on each other.

The story was remade into a direct-to-video live-action film starring Kei Mizutani in 1995. The video developed a cult following, and it was released theatrically to popular and critical success in 1996.[1]
