time the story is moved from Tokyo to a Hot Springs resort town where
two television stations are vying for the audience, the conservative Higashiya
Network and TV Trendy. After the stuffy Higashiya CEO dies from a heart
attack, his high school daughter Keiko takes over. She hires herself for
the weather show and builds viewership by flashing her panties on camera.
Across the street, TV Trendy has a vicious woman president who isn't amused
by the new scandalous programming from her competition. This escalates
into a big TV war when she hires a former porn star to do the weather
at her station.
Hosoyama, director of the previous WEATHER
GIRL, accepted this project from Bandai studios with the stipulation
that he "concentrate less on black humor and more on sex." After
reading the new script, the original weather girl, Kei Mizutani, refused
to continue in the role. She was replaced by Misa Aika, having just made
NAKED BLOOD for Hisayasu Sato. After this film, she became a familiar
face in Japanese television, starring as Junko in the Be Bop High
film with optional English subtitles; widescreen, (85 min.),
DVD encoded for WORLD FORMAT NTSC, playable on any American machine.
Extras include selected theatrical trailers.
