Dear Ms Yubari,

You're going to stay young forever and I'm not. So please pardon my being forward. If you don't feel like literally spilling my guts over strong drink, we could go out. It would do us both some good. It will take you away from the tedium of killing everything that isn't O-Ren or that bald guy you both hang out with. Too, I believe that the proper type of medication can help you quell certain episodes that involve slashing someone's belly open.

Underneath the hair and the psychoses and the school uniform, I am sure you are a wonderful, beautiful person. I would like to get to know you without the knives, whips and chains (though those can come later, after we've gotten to know each other very very well).

I have admired you for your physical beauty, your fighting skills and that loyalty to O-Ren that some of your male subordinates wish you'd lavish on them.

If it helps you make up your mind about me, I am learning Japanese as well as the ins and outs of dealing with people in black suits. I love Japanese food and I would love the opportunity of exploring ...something with you.

You can take your time, as I've suddenly got a lot of it on my hands. As with one other person for whom waiting is likely too late, I can wait for your reply. Though not forever.

I look forward to your affirmative response.


With much admiration,

Dexter Lira

heehee. I love KILL BILL so much I went and bought a set of (unsharpened) samurai swords so I can play The Bride whenever I want. :p

Did you know in the original script to Kill Bill, there were actually two Yubari sisters? Yuki was unfortunately cut from the script due to time constraints.

Try looking up the script online; it's a great read. Lots of tasty additional character bits.

P.S. if you like the actress who portrayed Gogo, Chiisa Kuriyama(sp?) QT got her after seeing her big scene in BATTLE ROYALE. If you know the one I'm talking about, then it's easy to see why QT thought she'd be a perfect Gogo. After seeing it myself, all I could say: Fucking OUCH.

Chiaki Kuriyama, Ian. I've seen both Battle Royale and Kill Bill and... this is a long story. I'll post a couple of poems and you can figure it out.
