The animated sequence in Kill Bill was designed specifically to reference and mirror scenes from 'Blood'.

Gogo Yubari's mini-sword is a tribute to Takako Chigusa's jackknife; Chiaki Kuriyama wears the same schoolgirl outfit in both films; The scene where Go-Go stabs a man in the crotch and asks him if he still wants to "penetrate her" is a homage to Chiaki Kuriyama's infamous scene in 'Battle Royale';
animated O-Ren Ishii's murdered parents and school girl assassin shooting sequence also occur in Kite

Do I look like someone you may have killed?" is taken directly from 'Shurayukihime', except Snowblood says "raped" instead of "killed."
