Fortunally I am in Japan(I am Spanish but in vacation with my Japanese wife) and I could to see KILL BILL JAPAN VERSION. I could not to see usa/europe version but I can say that japanese version is so great. Some diference that i can guess after see movie and read forums are :
The movie starts with homage to Kinji Fukasaku.
The one thing in b/w is the begining of the movie(uma's face). The hobl scene is full in a gorgeous red!!! and maybe there are more gore shots.
The length of the movie is 3 minutes longer, 113 minutes.
I read that in usa version dont appear the shot where the bride cut off the other arm of Sophie Fatale. In Japanese version appear. Very pretty moment.ahahahha.
END OF SPOILER
Until I dont see usa version, i can not tell anything more about diferences. Until december i will not be able to see it.
About the HOBL scene, i saw some clips and trailers about usa version and that black and white is not artistic is shit and not beautiful. I dislike it.
Miramax think that european are dumbers like amercian but that it is not true.
I can not wait for get japanese dvd version!!!!

I clicked around for quite some time and it popped up, i don't know what I did.
the beginning is all japanese, then quentin, lawrence, chiaki, chiba, lucy liu, sofie fatale, and uma come out. quentin, wearing a lost in translation shirt, does the rock star act then says that england and america got the bullshit version and they get the full version cause they can handle it. Uma talks japanese, than says we made the movie for you and her tit falls out. Quentin dies laughing jokes with her and hugs her. "She showed you her breast!!!" Lucy says alot of japanese than says it was made for japan. Sonny, Sofie Fatale, and Chiaki say some stuff all in japanese. A lady brings out Quentin a bouqet and says something in Japanese. Lucy thanks her and reveals she is Lady Snowblood and says she made O-Ren who she is. Quentin says she set the bar he reaches for but doesn't think he grasped. Another kid brings out a bouqet but he is never identified. I'd say all but 2 or 3 minutes of the 24 is japanese and it's just the panel before the premiere nothing about the differences.
Thanks for the link.
