File:Baby Please Kill Me 63.jpg

Despite the depressing title, Kill Me Baby (or Baby, please kill me depending on the translator, though the anime adaptation uses the former as the main title, and both in the eyecatches), is a Yonkoma gag strip revolving mostly around slapstick humor.

Yasuna Oribe is an airheaded high school girl who tries to greet a new student one day, only to discover that she's brutally efficient at twisting her arm, putting her in a chokehold, and using other painful methods of submission. She later learns that the girl's name is Sonya, and she works for an unnamed organization as an assassin. As the manga continues, Yasuna fluctuates between trying to warm Sonya up to living the life of a normal schoolgirl and occasionally trying to one-up her in various tests of skill. Both methods often end in failure, but it doesn't stop Yasuna from trying.

An anime adaptation was green-lit for the Winter 2012 Anime season. It started airing on January 5, 2012.

Everybody who is a fan of dark slapstick comedy should check this out.


Tropes presented by the series:

  • Amusing Injuries: A LOT. 99% of them fall on Yasuna.
    • Instant Bandages: And as a result she usually is found with these by the next panel, or even during a punch. They are also seen falling off as if they are just oversized pieces of paper.
  • Attack of the 50 Foot Whatever: Huge versions of Yasuna and Sonya appear in episode 4 as eyecatches.
  • Aw, Look -- They Really Do Love Each Other: Sonya and Yasuna have a few moments like these (like in the last episode of the anime), and their rarity only adds to their sweetness.
  • Batman Gambit: In episode 8 Yasuna actually manages to pull one on Sonya when she convinces her to play darts by making hitting the inner circle a failure.
  • Beach Episode: Chapter 10, absent fanservice.
  • Brain Bleach: Sonya and Yasuna's expressions after opening Agiri's boxes in the wrong order in the last episode. Agiri is shown to have recovered the end of the last segment.
  • Boke and Tsukkomi Routine: Most of the chapters involving Sonya and Yasuna usually play out like this.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Upon hearing a bear has escaped from the zoo and may be lurking nearby:

 Sonya: Ah!! I just had a really bad feeling! Some idiot just activated some really bad flags!

 Yasuna: "Kuso! Kuso!"

 Yasuna: Guten morgen!

Yasuna: Danke schön!

Yasuna: ¡Buenos días!

Yasuna: Nihao!
