Storyline

She may be cute. She may be young. She may seem innocent and naive, but don't be fooled. She's a cold-blooded killer, and if you're on the wrong side of the law, you may be her next target. After being orphaned at a young age, her parents victims of a brutal double murder, Sawa was taken in by the detective assigned to her case. Not content to just watch as the imperfect justice system let more and more criminals go loose every day, he's decided to train her to be his instrument of justice. After all, who'd suspect a pretty college student of being a deadly vigilante? Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Three versions were released in the USA by Media Blasters: a "General Release" version (rated 16-up) was released in 2000 and a "Director's Cut" version (rated 18-up) was released in 2002 which was released by their adult label Kitty Media, which contains nearly 10 minutes of explicit footage. This Director's Cut version, however, is missing 12 seconds worth of footage found in the original Japanese release. A third release, labeled "Uncut Special Edition" (also rated 18-up) was released in 2004 and was also released by Media Blasters adult label Kitty Media, contains Kite in its original, uncut form.
