Hatori Hanzo and Bill


#1

Just wanted to know if you ever find out why Hanzo agrees to making a sword for the bride when he hears it is to kill bill. Bill was a former student of Hanzo’s but what did he do to make Hanzo agree to help in his killing??


#2

Because he knows how violent and sadistic he is and it is all his fault cause he taught him.


#3

Bill was like Anakin Skywalker to Hanzo’s Obi Won Kenobi. If youve seen SW you can figure it out.


#4

Since he taught Bill all he knows, he feels that he’s more than partly responsible for his actions.

I thought Hanzo was just a swordmaker. Pai Mei did all the training, he did it for all of the DVAS. It’s a bit off mark if you ask me, I think Hanzo just fell bad for creating such a dangerous weapon that was used to murder innocent people. Hence the line,“I no longer make instruments of death”

Then why refer to Bill as a former “student”? Hanzo trained Bill in Swordsmanship. This Hattori Hanzo is the 100th Hattori Hanzo descended from the Hanzo in the TV show Kage no Gundan, also played by Chiba. Hanzo was a real Ninja Warrior in the 16th century BTW.
