Did it ever explain why he killed her parents to begin with?
Ah, the least bad 8 minutes of Kill Bill.
Wouldn't the fact that this came out only four years ago indicate that they do, in fact, still make anime like this?
in an age where the online world is refreshed every few minutes, nostalgia is a common feeling
Funny how this is from a big budget movie by a popular director, and not a shot from a fully animated movie or show.
The last time I saw this style used was in the animatrix, and that was a short film that was given a big budget.
Most anime now just uses oversimplified designs with very simple lines and shading, it's very disapointing after seeing how good it can be if done like this.

No. Wrong wrong wrong. I apologize in advance for utter faggotry.
First, look up Production I.G. sometime. They produced the animation for this piece. A sizable amount of their later output features many of the fancy techniques and designs you see here. Blood: The Last Vampire comes to mind.
Secondly, watch yourself some Peter Chung. I wouldn't be surprised to hear if the character designer and animation team for this had ripped pages straight of his notebook.
Lastly, a hell of a lot more anime is being made like this these days., given that digital technology permits far more colors to be used on more and more complex characters.
that was more faggotry than could be forgiven
I was talking about the animation style, chung doesn't use this style (nor has he done any original work in 10 years) and IG doesn't use this style in any full-length movie or series.
You're confusing "looks better than usual crappy anime" with looking as good as this.
It's unfair to single out anime for using oversimplified designs; that's true of the entire TV animation industry. Most shows produced in the US these days use very simple flat-looking designs reminiscent of Gendy Tartokovsky; they're not only easier to animate, but shows with simple designs can be done entierly in flash for a fraction of the cost of normal animation. Both countries are culpable here. Japan and America both have some great-looking stuff, but the general trend in the industry for the past few years has been to follow the old Hanna-Barbera mantra and cut corners wherever you can.

What Xenocide said. Also: What feature-length or TV show animation, Japanese or otherwise, in the past 40 years has looked anything like the above clip?
that's the whole fucking point, it's not used for full length stuff anymore because it costs too much!
Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Afro Samurai...
Kill Bill II needed another anime sequence in place of David Carradine rambling about Superman.
Too bad the movie is kind of stupid.
Seen better anime in a Bill Plympton cartoon. Still, +5 for animating the flashback. All flashbacks should be animated.
Whats with all the Kill Bill hate?
Yeah they do.
Did they just pull that stupid "nose into brain" bullshit that every strip mall self-defense school teaches?
PS: Predictability, blatant attempts at shocking, giant leaps of logic.
