"This is one cartoon DEFINITELY not for the kids!"

This animated version of Ichi The Killer is the prequel to Takashi Miike's splatter-filled comedy-gore film.

Showing Ichi's childhood (teen years), leading up to just before the live-action film of the same name, this film takes everything that's wholesome and moral, chews it up, and spits it out.

Takashi Miike even does a cameo as the voice of Kakihara (the naked guy running at the start), which is a nice shout out to his fans.

Not as good as the live-action counterpart, but if you liked Ichi The Killer, then you will enjoy this nice little back story.

A world-exclusive anime companion to the infamous, hyper-violent Japanese psychological thriller "Ichi The Killer", this animated feature, penned by the original series creator Hideo Yamamoto, is significantly more shocking and controversial than its live action counterpart.

Shamelessly underpinned with glorious blood-splattered battles and sadistic sexual debauchery, the "fun for all the family" ethos has been empathetically 'thrown out of the window" to make way for a disturbing visceral and often savage kaleidoscope of rampant comic book violence.
