ace Emi Takei plays the enigmatic Otenki Onee-san. With her black rain poncho, riding her bike equipped with her trademark anemometer on the handlebars, she cuts quite a figure as she rides around the city solving weather related crimes. Looks like she rode right out of a great manga. She doesn't have to act a lot. Mostly just deadpan delivery. But she does it perfectly.

But the secondary cast is great too. Most notably for me was Kuranosuke Sasaki and Nozomi Sasaki and their characters. To be honest I had expected at the onset that the great Kuranosuke Sasaki would be a comic relief pervert and Nozomi Sasaki would be a female antagonist. Nothing could be further from the truth. They turned out to be apt characters I could appreciate.

It left on a cliffhanger so I hope they bring it back for a special or a second season.

tea I love your acting most Emi Takei, after watching "The weather gilr knows" I become your fan, you are intelligent and beautiful. Hope you always like that!
