Kite: Extreme Gore and Hentai

Hello everybody! Today we have the 1990 OVA Kite.

Here you can check out my review of Kite’s sequel, Kite Liberator.

KITE

DIRECTOR: Yasuomi Umetsu

EPISODES: 1 Film

GENRE: Neo-noiractioncrimegirls with gunshentai

YEAR: 1998

COUNTRY: Japan

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?

Kite is the first entry in the Kite series, followed by the critically panned Kite: Liberator (You can check out my review at the beginning of the article). Kite focuses on the exploitation of school girls and definitely uses that genre to its advantage. The film is gritty, filled with gore, and very graphic. While the film isn’t very long (45 min without hentai scenes, 60 min with hentai) the film packs as much as it can into the short amount of time it does have. Lets just say, without spoiling too much (even though its been 16 years) I was rooting for Sawa right from the get go.

I want to point out that Kite has two different releases, one censored and one including 15 minutes of hentai. This review is based off of the uncensored version as I was told that it was much better. I want to say that Kite is a fucking crazy film, and the graphic rape/sex scenes are over the top and not okay. She isn’t even a teenager! How could they actually include this? I agree that the additional 15 minutes of rape really drives home and justifies Sawa’s assassinations, but it really doesn’t have to be included. The hentai scenes don’t include tentacles (sorry fandom) but includes full frontal nudity and very vigorous rape. If this doesn’t bother you, then feel free to watch the uncensored version.

PROS:

  •  Interesting revenge story.
  • Graphic gore.
  • Dark themes.

CONS:

  •  Graphic rape scenes.
  • Close to child pornography.
  • La Femme Nikita but underage and full frontal nudity.

SCORE: 7.0 / 10
