Description

A world-exclusive anime companion to the infamous, hyper-violent Japanese psychological thriller "Ichi the killer", this animated feature, penned by original series creator Hideo Yamamoto, is significantly more shocking and controversial than its live-action counterpart. Shamelessly underpinned with glorious blood-spattered battles and sadistic sexual debauchery, the "fun for all the family" ethos has been emphatically "thrown out the window" to make way for a disturbing, visceral and often savage kaleidoscope of rampant comic-book violence. Tracing the genesis of Ichi's inner rage and detailing the previously untouched history of his schooldays and interaction with his parents, this joyfully excessive anime provides a unique insight into the main themes of the live-action adventure, in much the same way as "The Animatrix" illuminated the origins of the much-celebrated "Matrix trilogy".

Fans will delight in the fact that Takashi Miike, the director of Ichi the Killer (Live-action) and "Aufition", provides the voice for the pivotal character of Kakihara.

"A quite good anime OVA for a great manga." by N. (Netherlands) on Apr 7, 2005

If you were a fan of the manga or the live-action movies this anime is worth watching. Ichi the Killer is a very cool concept and if you're a fan you need to watch this.
They kept all the original character designs like in the manga. It shows you more about Ichi's past that they didn't cover in the manga or movie.
Of course, like you're used from Ichi, some brutal violence. Although not as much as in the manga or movie.
