Bullied at school by day and psychologically tormented by the sounds of his seemingly average parents' S&M sex games at night, the teenage Ichi slowly becomes conditioned to equate pain with pleasure. Initially in frustrated denial of the fact that he finds himself sexually aroused by acts of violence, Ichi gains a small measure of self-acceptance when he meets and is seduced by a beautiful, tough and extremely masochistic young girl. Already one hundred percent sadistic and almost totally dysfunctional, Ichi finds himself going even further over the edge when his own blood is spilled...
This stunning anime version of Hideo Yamamoto's creation takes his intensely visceral manga saga back to its blood-soaked roots. Scripted by Yamamoto himself, this details the shocking origins of the razor-booted assassin and martial arts expert Ichi, while also revealing the sources of his barely controlled inner rage!
