I know, I know.....
Quit messing around and get to the Japanese school girls!
Well here's one that's not a stereotypical school girl.
Not by a long shot.......
One of my favorite psychos.....
Gogo Yubari as played by Chiaki Kuriyama.

Born October 10 1984, in Tsuchiura, Ibaraki, Japan.
Chiaki stands only 5'4", but don't let that fool you. She looks taller with the manriki.

Chiaki made her Hollywood debut in director Quentin Tarantino's 2003 film Kill Bill, Volume I as Gogo Yubari, the manriki-wielding schoolgirl yakuza bodyguard of Tokyo mob mistress O-Ren Ishii. Chiaki's lines in the film were all in Japanese (except for a single word, "bingo"), although she has stated that she is in the process of learning English and hopes to play more English-language roles in the future.

She was also in the cult classic, Battle Royale (2000) as Takako Chigusa.
