The Original ICHI KILLER IS one of my favorite movies. I get that the popular consensus of fans of the original IS that this Prequel IS, compared to the original, bad. There's like literally NO positive criticism of this movie on letterboxd. Yeah ok whatever. 1-ICHI totally has merit. It's direct to video, complete with early 2000s 30fps digital cinematography and probably cost nothing to make. I'm kind of a sucker for that sort of thing. I'm sorry. Tadanobu Asano may not be in it but he does the soundtrack so hell yeah. Again, it has nothing on the original, so it is best to look at as standalone film that happens to have 1-ICHI IS Prequel to ICHI KILLER and is set during ICHI's highschool days and should explain how he picked up leg training and how he became prone to violence and hate for bullies. But literally, in every aspect, it is a bad movie that I do recommend watching. I feel like I am watching one of those Ugandan NO-budget action movies. Why IS everything so bad. Why do THEY use 1 picture for 3 seconds instead of just filming guys staring at each other normally for 3 seconds. Why does Nao Omori isnt shave and hasnt some make up apply, how does he look like a highschooler? I can literally see a 45 year old dude with a mustache. THEY This IS prequel to one of my favorite movies, ICHI KILLER. It isn't anywhere near as good or interesting, nothing about the movie IS crazy. It looked as if it were a film on PSP. Acting sucks for everyone, even Nao Omori sucks at it. Tadanobu Asano's soundtrack IS the only good thing in this movie. Editing IS almost like something a 9 year old could do in Windows Movie Maker. Literally anything else IS better than this movie. If you like this flaming pile of dog crap, that's your opinion and that's fine. This movie IS just not good in my opinion. I don't understand the point of the Prequel either way. This barely even IS media content IS video, making it seem unprofessional. The editing IS atrocious, sound was surprisingly bad, and the acting and script were weak. This IS for ICHI KILLER completests only as it comes nowhere close to ICHI KILLER. Violence exists and disturbing images are there but mute. I was constantly comparing to ICHI KILLER, which IS not fair to this flick. Rewatched This, still one of my least favorite movies. Editing IS bad, music IS bad, directing IS bad, camera this shitheap was Film was bad, everything about it IS bad. Even acting. What's point of adding certain things. One of the worst things about this movie IS definitely bad editing. It's trying to be like ICHI KILLER With weird editing, but it's not cool in a weird way here.

Plot

Ki Apr 18 2009 8: 23 pm Ichi is another Japanese FILM that reprises old, but adds a new twist or two. FILM doesnt make as wide of departure as say Azumi or Sakuran in stylistic terms, but you will notice one very attractive lead actress playing a deadly swordswoman who is also blind. Ichi also marks the long awaited second live Action pic by Fumihiko Sori, Director of the incredibly hyper-kinetic 2002 FILM Ping Pong. Ichi, produced by TV station TBS, is oriented towards the young and old and thus youll have to make do with its overtly commercial feel. If you can get past this and obnoxiously over top performances by the main villains, then you can still have a lot of fun with FILM. Haruka Ayase, who probably gets acclimate with Action orientate scenes from her work in Cyborg She, does a fine job as blind swordswoman. Although she always dresses in rags, films many close-ups of Haruka Ayases ' attractive profile make you take notice of her presence. I didnt completely buy Takao Osawas performance as fearful swordsman. Towards the end of the FILM his trepidation gets tiresome enough that I just want to blurt out and pull out damn blade you idiot! For those wanting to know how Ichi stood up to Fumihiko Soris prior FILM Ping Pong, well it doesnt. Fumihiko Sori brought along pals Yosuke Kubozuka & Shido Nakamura from Ping Pong, but both of their performances were sub par compared to their prior earlier FILM. The story of Ichi is also simplified to excessive degrees and lacks the undeniable charm of Ping Pong. Technical merits like F / X scenes are noticeably weaker than in his first FILM. With that say, even though Ichi wo be thought of as a memorable FILM in any sort of way, there is Haruka Ayase roaming around feudal era Japan, slicing and dicing evil foes while gazing down like a model in a commercial advertisement. There are worse things one can sit through.

Japanese Ordinal Numbers

And one last new number:

KanjiPronunciationGlossArabic
/senthousand1000

Ban is a sort of generic classifier for ordinality. Sometimes you see me added, but I think it is sort of redundant. Shichi does means seven, but that is on-yomi, or Chinese reading, and I dont think Ive ever heard it used in ordinary I am not sure whether or not it is actually wrong to use it, and people would probably understand what you were trying to say, but it would be more natural to use kun-yomi for that particular number. So seventh = nanaban. As with many things Japanese, though, context matters. If you are referring to the seventh day of the month, for instance, you use nanoka instead of nanaban.

Japanese Phone Numbers

Basic Japanese counting: 1 to 10 in Japanese

NumberSino-Japanese readingKanjiNative Japanese readingKanji
1(ichi)(hitotsu)
2(ni)(futatsu)
3(san)(mittsu)
4(shi, yon)(yottsu)
5(go)(itsutsu)
6(roku)(muttsu)
7(shichi, nana)(nanatsu)
8(hachi)(yattsu)
9(ku, kyuu)(kokonotsu)
10(juu)(tou)
0(rei, zero, maru)

Japanese has three words for 0:, and. How to distinguish among them? Loanword zero is frequently used when reading phone numbers. Rei is somewhat more formal and is more likely to appear in formal speeches and news broadcasting. Maru basically means circle and is an informal way of referring to 0 when reading individual digits of numbers one by one, instead of as full number. A popular example is the famous 109 store in Shibuya, Tokyo, which is read as ichi-maru-kyu. Maru in Japanese is similar to reading the numeral 0 as oh in English.

Just like the number 13 is considered an unlucky number in the West, there are also some ominous pronunciations in Japanese which people want to avoid. For example, you may find that numbers like 4, 7, and 9 have two different Sino-Japanese pronunciations. The main reason why they have two pronunciations is taboo. Shi means death and ku means suffering in Japanese, and shichi sounds like a place to die. That is why, in most cases, number 4 is pronounced as yon, 7 as nana and 9 as kyuu. But you still need to memorize both forms. By the way, 8 is considered a lucky number in Japan because of the shape of kanji for 8:. It widens at the bottom, which is called suehirogari, and Japanese people believe it is a sign of prosperity and fertility.
