Weather Report Girl Review

I seem to be in a trend lately of going back to some of the more obscure, but entertaining anime titles from my younger days, so I thought I would review Weather Report GirlWeather Report Girl has been described as yuri by some, but I consider it more of a sexual comedy, much like many of the anime during the 90's.  Weather Report Girl centers around sadistic woman named Keiko that will stop at nothing to be adored by millions, and sets her sights on doing so by becoming the weather girl of a large Japanese network.  In her pursuit of this goal, Keiko is completely ruthless and stops at nothing to become an idol of television.
I am not going to spoil how she gets her foot in the door, but when you see it, right off the bat, you realize that Keiko is a beast, and she stays on top the same way.  She uses her razor sharp intellect and sexuality to coax people to her side, or run right over them, and her fans love her for it.
The cast of characters include the network executives, which will do anything to make their network #1, her rival, and first weather girl, and a timid and homely man from her past that has been stalking Keiko for years.  I think the funniest folks are the executives, especially, the owner of the network.  They pretty much let Keiko do whatever she wants because they see yen signs in everything she does, and they are typical perverted businessmen.
The animation is decent, but what shines through is the humour.  This, and the sexuality actually made Weather Report Girl a cult favourite among many, and enabled it to be translated into live action media.  Like many of the older anime, it can be found on YouTube, so watching it should be no problem.  For some reason, I don't think it has ever been dubbed, but it is available in sub.
