When masturbation-obsessed Keiko (Kei Mizutani) gets the chance of doing JTV's weather report filling in for regular host Michiko (Saori Taira), she decides to make the best of it - and flashes her panties on live television. Before she knows it, Keiko has not only become the regular host of the weather show, but also a phenomenon on Japanese television, an instant cultural icon, and one of the top stars on JTV, with the chairman of the channel (Hideyo Amamoto) backing her 100%. Keiko wants more though and thinks the weather report is her launching pad for world domination (don't ask!).

Keiko's predecessor Michiko meanwhile is given a show Hello, Mr Pervert, and all her attempts of scheming against Keiko lead to naught.

Enter Kaori (Yasuro Shiyashima), the Paris-educated daughter of the chairman, who just loves to carry some French Bread around to signify her French-made superiority, and who wants the weather report for herself, to turn it into a sophisticated cultural program. The chairman though is unwilling to hand the weather report over, so Kaori decides to team up with Michiko, makes her Keiko's slave, and films her having sex with Keiko, which is shown during the next weather report - and instantly ends Keiko's career.

While Kaori prepares to take over the weather report and shape it after her own liking, Keiko goes into hiding with her secret admirer Minoru (Takashi Sumida), whom she forces to torture her in the most bizarre ways using the Heavenly Whip to prepare for her showdown with Kaori.

During Kaori's debut weather report, Keiko shows up and challenges her to a duel, a duel that is not only fought with Heavenly Whip against Kaori's Heavenly Sword and using all sorts of over-the-top martial arts, but it turns out that both girls actually have (at least limited) control over the weather - and eventually, Keiko defeats Kaori and regains her throne as weather queen.

Above everything else, Weather Woman is one thing: mad! It starts out as a pointless sex comedy, swiftly turns into an over-the-top media satire, is turned onto its head a few times (also with the help of a few song-and-dance numbers) and finally culminates in a fantasy martial arts extravaganza. What's remarkable about all these changes of pace is that they come across as organic, and while the film intentionally lacks any and all realism as such, it actually makes sense in its own context. Add to this a very swift direction, a cast clearly in on the joke yet playing it straight, and many an intentionally camp element, and you come up with a mad, over-the-top masterpiece of Japanese comedy.

Highly recommended!
