I don't think Ishii was involved in the production. IIRC Tarantino talked in
interview about his love for the young lions doing the "ultra-violent" genre
movies in Japan and name checked the usual suspects. He talked about being
influenced by Takashi, etc.

I also recall seeing that much of the stunt crew that worked on Kill Bill
were involved with Kitamura Ryuhei's movies. Any confirmation of this?
