Kei Mizutani as Weather Woman Keiko Nakadai

V-cinema queen Kei Mizutani‘s movie debut as Keiko Nakadai in the (initially-released in April of) 1995 adult comedy Weather Woman, was arguably her signature role. After raising her skirt to illustrate the depth of a recent snowfall, thus exposing her panties on the air during her first weather report (and bringing back an old memory for her former high school classmate, who was viewing at the time), Keiko becomes an overnight sensation. Above we see Kei as Keiko, singing a celebratory song soon after making her first appearance as the new weather woman at a Tokyo news station.

As for the now 40-year-old Kei, after Weather Woman, she continued acting throughout the rest of the 90′s but passed on reprising her role as Keiko in the 1996 sequel, Weather Woman Returns. (The role went to Misa Aika, who now resides in the “Whatever Happened to..?” file.) Kei did make an appearance at the 2000 San Diego Comic Con, where Weather Woman made its US premiere, but since then, she pretty much retired from acting, save for a rare occasional part, such as her small role in 2010′s Flower and Snake 3.
