I first bought this after reading a bunch of critiques for Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill. I bought it and read it out of anger and spite, to be able to say "I saw what Tarantino ripped off from and it was a MILLION times better than that terrible excuse for a film."

It helped pass the time, but nothing more. A lot of bad people died, which I always root for, so I guess that's pretty good. Oyuki Kashima is without a doubt, one of the deadliest and most beautiful women I've seen in ...
