Originally, Kite was a 2-episode OVA (Original video animation, also known as straight-to-video in the U.S.) running approximately 60 minutes. Each episode got it's very own uncut VHS and DVD release in Japan in 1998. In 2000, Kite was re-released in Japan in a slightly edited version, removing questionable sexually explicit scenes, known as the International Version/Director's Cut which was the foundation for the first U.S. release of Kite.

A lot better than the live-action U.S. movie adaptation!!!
This is movie is the primary example of why Hollywood needs to stop making terrible live-action U.S. film adaptations based off of certain anime shows and movies. This anime OAV is basically a simple concept to follow, but the filmmakers of the U.S. live-action version just wanna make it a repeat of Dragonball Evolution. Now the story is actually interesting to watch and the characters have a lot more to offer since it's basically Sawa out to get revenge on only one guy that she had known who was the murderer of her family. Now if the live-action U.S. movie had gotten rid of so many unnecessary crap and just stay true to the original, I would've been fine with that. But, nope. They just made it obvious that I should just stick with the anime, instead.
Overall, I actually like this version a lot more than the live- action U.S. version.
8 out 10!!!
Definitely a must see.
