The DVD released by "Banzai" is very heavily cut, with numerous scenes sadistic/sexual violence removed.
The film's UK home video release was cut by nearly four minutes. Any shots in which throwing stars and nunchaku are used were removed, as well as several scenes of bloody violence and Aiko's rape scene.
The cinema version of this movie was banned in Norway but the first video release was uncut. After a while the uncut videoversion was banned too and later videoversions are cut.
