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.

Alternate Versions

In 2002, Media Blasters released Kite again on DVD under their Kitty Media label with a Director's Cut version. This version, while nearly perfect, still omits roughly 12 seconds of material involving sex with a minor. This version continues down the path of having both episodes spliced together, making this more of a movie than a 2 episode OAV as it was meant to be, and is labeled with an 18+ viewer rating.

A bit overrated
8 July 2018 | by mhorg2018See all my reviews

Kite is an orphaned girl who kills for her controller, who supposedly saved her. Filled with some real gore, super violent content and a decent story line, avoid the lame live action movie and see this instead.
