people keep telling me that Kite is soooooo good.. but i couldn't even get past the previews and AMVs.. they're so scary and bloody.. i don't know how i can get past the violence and gore to the "EXCELLENT PLOTLINE" that it supposedly has.. not even online translations w/out pictures can help me.. because i can see it in my head.. i'm just wondering.. what did everyone else think of it??

Glorified Hentai, that's about it, really. The story isn't that good. The anime and art is exceptionally well, but in the end, it's still a hentai. You're not missing out on much. Trust me.

Kite was ok. I mean I have heard the director's cut is better, but I don't know.

I was desperately underwhelmed by Kite. Nothing in it I haven't seen before.

I kinda liked Kite. It wasn't bad...but it's not one of my faves either. And honestly, if you can't get past the blood in the beginning, don't even bother trying to watch the rest. It doesn't go away.
From what I heard, the director liked the "cut" version better than the original. (The cut version isn't missing much....pretty much just an underage sex scene.)

the only good thing about Kite was the main characters outfit, which is why i rented it. I really wish I hadn't been sucked in by her school girl-ish costume. I really hated it.

I think Kite is like Blood the Last Vampire. You either like it or hate it, there really is no grey in this!

you people just don't understand Umetsu's work. ^_~;``
he's a genius.
and A KITE is not hentai!
and yeah that's right! it's really called "A KITE".

We do understand, but it just isn't that interesting.

heh heh **agrees with Camilla**
yeah, we just don't really care much for it.

I liked Kite...it was a fun, melodramatic, bloody piece of work. but it gets too heavy sometimes..

I rather liked Kite myself. I wouldn't classify it as a "hentai" since there was an actual plotline that yes. I did. Like. It was very graphic and I am sure sent many a teenage boy into the shower, but somehow the "mature" scenes were deadening rather than arrousing. Perhaps you need the naughtiness of the director's cut to know what I am talking about.

well just how much of Umetsu's work HAVE you seen?

I saw that fully uncut uncensored version, and its pretty bad. I prefer the cut that Anime Works origionally made to Kite. I do not need all of the hardcore sex, let alone guys with 10" wangs. Mezzo Forte was even worse. I suggest you find the cut version to enjoy kite, its a great anime.

i dont like it... it's just a story of a girl... raised by molesters to kill molesters... its retarded.
the free fall scene was cool
