Anime inspired by KILL BILL?

Hey Katy,

My question is for any of the guys.

While watching the Japanese anime for Careless
Memories, something came to my mind, and that
is---did the animator get any inspiration from the
"Kill Bill" movies?

The 3 main situations that stand out are:

1) In the anime, when the guys fight their enemies,
this mirrors how The Bride AKA Beatrice fights the
Crazy 88's in "Kill Bill"--while both are wearing
suits and ties, in the KB movies they wear eye masks while in the CM anime they have face masks;

2) In the movie, one of the chapters was an actual
anime; and

3) At the end of the CM anime, when the guys hunt
down EMI, this seems to mirror Beatrice hunting down Bill in "Kill Bill".

Thanks in advance for reading my email.

WELL CJ, WE RECKON YOU WIN CONSPIRACY OF THE WEEK! WE ARE ADMIRERS OF “KILL BILL” 1 & 2 AND ALSO A BIT OF A STICKLER FOR DETAILS, YET IT SOMEHOW PASSED US BY THAT THERE MAY BE A SUCH SIMILIARITIES WITH OUR HUMBLE ANIME. IT IS PROBABLY A PURE COINCIDENCE & IN FACT MSR. TARANTINO IS QUITE THE MOVIE BUFF PARTICLARLY WHEN IT COMES TO THOSE JAPANESE FILM NASTIES…SO…IT IS ENTIRELY LIKELY THAT OUR ANIME TEAM HAD SIMILAR TASTES.
