It reminds me of a Zatoichi where some Yakuza go after Ichi for no other reason than because he swaggers around, and they can't let him get away with that, can they? They can't let this blind masseuse/ grifter/ drifter/ swordsman go around thinking he's better than the other Yakuza (Ichi identifies himself as a Yakuza). So this instigator punk talks the crime bosses into going after Ichi for no other reason than to get a reputation for the lot of them. Suffice to say, Ichi winds up going on a bit of a rampage at the end, but HE ONLY KILLS THE MEN, and they are all Yakuza punks, and it's only a movie. Okay?
