Wasn't there also a prequel movie to Ichi the Killer? I think it was called "Ichi 1".

Mike Rhode said...

Didn't find anything on that one...

Unknown said...

Here's an Ebay auction for an imported DVD. I knew I saw it somewhere. Of course, it could be something else that got relabeled.

Mike Rhode said...

You're right, Matt, except that IMDB lists it as 1-Ichi just to confuse us. I'll make the correction now. Thanks again!

Mike Rhode said...

And oddly enough, there's an animated Episode 0.
