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 serialized in ''Magazine/MangaTimeKirara'' 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 Winter2012Anime season. It started airing on January 5, 2012.

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

SentaiFilmworks acquired the licensing rights for the show and released an English dub.

!!Tropes presented by the series:

* AmusingInjuries: A LOT. 99% of them fall on Yasuna.
** InstantBandages: 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.
* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: Huge versions of Yasuna and Sonya appear in episode 4 as eyecatches.
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Sonya and Yasuna have a few moments like these (like in the last episode of the anime), and their rarity only [[HeartwarmingMoments adds to their sweetness]].
* BadassAdorable / CuteBruiser: Sonya definitely qualifies as this.
* BatmanGambit: 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.
** Yasuna also tricked Sonya at one point into dodging a shot from a water gun...because she was intentionally aiming for Sonya's lunch.
* BeachEpisode: Chapter 10, absent fanservice.
* BearsAreBadNews: Chapter 9 (Episode 2 in the anime).
* BrainBleach: 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.
* BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine: Most of the chapters involving Sonya and Yasuna usually play out like this.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: 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 [[EventFlag bad flags]]!
* ButtMonkey: Yasuna
* CatGirl: The second Yasuna puppet in episode 5.
* CloudCuckooLander: Yasuna (see above). Agiri, oh is she ever.
* ClusterFBomb: A somewhat mild form happens when Yasuna gets frustrated.
-->'''Yasuna''': "Kuso! Kuso!"
* CranialEruption: Comes with a majority of Yasuna's AmusingInjuries.
* DancingTheme: The anime ending theme. It actually comes [[http://safebooru.org/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=456054 straight out of the manga]]!
* DemotedToExtra: At the end of the first volume, the manga's creator mentioned that Yasuna was initially supposed to play the "straight" girl to contrast with Sonya's insanity, and a third unnamed child assassin with braided hair and a Chinese fighting style was going to play TheDitz. However, Yasuna eventually absorbed the third girl's personality and became the crazy girl to Sonya's relatively "straight" role, while the other girl was relegated to the extra material outside of the story.
** MauveShirt in the anime, due to being voiced by RieKugimiya.
* DissonantSerenity: Agiri never changes the sleepy, cheerful tone of her voice regardless of whether she's eating, buying a new phone, fighting a rival assassin from an enemy organization or standing inches away from an escaped zoo bear.
** Except in the dub, where Agiri will occasionally ditch the voice either to snark or say a one liner.
* TheDitz: Again, Yasuna. She ''thinks'' she's in High School. Maybe.
* DualWielding: The Volume 1 cover shows Sonya wielding pistols and Yasuna wielding an eggplant and a banana.
* EnfantTerrible: Sonya.
* EyesAlwaysShut: Agiri.
* FestivalEpisode: Chapter 24.
* FieryRedhead: The unused character, [[MulticoloredHair partially]].
* GirlishPigtails: Sonya.
* GratuitousEnglish: ''Kill Me Baby'' and ''Baby, please kill me'', of course. The anime has many other instances too.
** In fact, the ''actual'' title of the series is ''Kirumi-[=BeiBii=]'', the phonetic approximation of "Kill Me Baby."
* GratuitousForeignLanguage: Yasuna, in the anime, particularly in the opening scene as a form of CouchGag.
--> '''Yasuna:''' [[GratuitousGerman Guten morgen!]]
--> '''Yasuna:''' [[GratuitousGerman Danke schön!]]
--> '''Yasuna:''' [[GratuitousSpanish ¡Buenos días!]]
--> '''Yasuna:''' [[GratuitousChinese Nihao!]]
* HandPuppet: Yasuna makes some for chapter 25.
* HatesBeingTouched: Sonya. Yasuna [[RunningGag repeatedly fails]] [[AmusingInjuries to remember this.]]
* HeliumSpeech: One of the gifts Sonya and Agiri give Sonya at her party. They use it to do tongue twisters. The Unused Character finds it later and does the same.
* HighlyVisibleNinja: Ridiculed. During Sonya's not-birthday, Agiri (a genuine ninja) gives her a present of a very stereotypical ninja outfit (think ''FinalFantasyTactics'' Ninja class). Yasuna then mocks and laughs at Sonya's so-stereotype TheThemeParkVersion appearance. Things obviously end painfully for Yasuna.
* IdiotCrows: The crows that steal Yasuna's lunch. One says Baka and the other says Aho as they swoop in.
* IronButtmonkey: Nothing ever stops Yasuna for long. Submission moves, limb fractures, punches to the face, she just keeps doing whatever she was doing.
* {{Jerkass}} [[spoiler: [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold With A Heart Of Gold]]]]: Sonya. Yasuna can be quite a passive-aggressive jerk too.
** Other than the knee-jerk reactions to being touched, most of Sonya's asskickings are warranted.
* KickTheDog: Yasuna left her stuffed rabbit on Sonya's desk to teach her to be nicer. When she returned, Sonya had it twisted into a ball.
* KlingonPromotion: Yasuna suggests that Sonya kill her superiors in order to escape from her life of being an assassin. [[HypocriticalHumor Sonya calls her out before she finishes the thought.]]
* LittleMissBadass: Sonya. Simply trying to touch her will result in losing the use of your arm.
* MagicSkirt: It's actually one of Agiri's ninja techniques. It applies to her hair, too[[note]]Actually, it's inverted for her hair[[/note]].
* MagicalGirl: Yasuna (CuteWitch variant) in the Volume 2 {{omake}} (Episode 11 in the anime).
* MasochismTango: Sonya and Yasuna. They seem to be the only people willing to put up with each other, not counting Agiri.
* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Agiri. Maybe the greatest ninja ever to walk the Earth... or just a good con artist. Most definitely TheGadfly.
** FridgeBrilliance: Go look at the entry for {{Ninja}}, note comparisons with HighlyVisibleNinja. Not knowing whether it's magic or sleight-of-hand IS Ninjutsu!
* MinimalistCast: Sonya, Yasuna, Agiri and the Unused Character make for a very small cast that never expands. Even the latter two don't appear that much.
** In the anime, any walk-on roles are played by the same old man and woman, and even those are few in number. Two other schoolgirls have been shown onscreen but their appearances are very brief.
* MoodWhiplash: The last third of the SeasonFinale - [[spoiler: What starts out as a regular gag sketch of Yasuna trying to disrupt one of Sonya's assassination assignments ends with her [[ItMakesSenseInContext stuck in a pit]] [[TearJerker tearfully begging Sonya not to leave, because she's terrified for the safety of]] [[IJustWantToHaveFriends one of her only friends.]] [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Cue Sonya helping her out of the pit and claiming her mission was cancelled due to a "change of plans".]]]]
* MundaneUtility: Sonya's killer reflexes are great for opening bottles.
* NewYearHasCome: Yasuna, Sonya and Agiri use the first school day after New Year to hold a combined New Year, Christmas and Halloween Party.
* {{Ninja}}: Agiri Goshiki, the only other named character so far in the story.
* NoNameGiven: The "unused character".
* OnTheNextEpisodeOfCatchPhrase: "Now what will you do, Yasuna Oribe?"
* PhenotypeStereotype: Sonya has blonde hair and blue eyes, signaling that she's from... wherever she's from.
* PuniPlush
* RapunzelHair: Agiri
* ShoutOut:
** Is that [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Kyubey]] in Episode 1 of the anime?
** Also, let's not forget [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 a certain well-dressed gentleman]] from everyone's favorite war-themed hat simulator.
** In Episode 3, Yasuna (using two spoons) and Sonya (imitating the transformation pose) give one to ''Series/{{Ultraman}}''. Yasuna does it again (with a mask) in Episode 5.
* SingleMaltVision: How Agiri's "clone jutsu" actually works.
* SlapstickKnowsNoGender: The premise of the show is slapstick, and poor Yasuna tends to be the one who receives it.
* TalkingIsAFreeAction: Agiri averts this in chapter 12, much to her target's distress.
* {{Tareme Eyes}}: [[OrdinaryHighschoolStudent Yasuna]].
* TemptingFate: Yasuna is constantly doing this.
* TeruTeruBozu: Yasuna attempts to end a typhoon by stringing a chain of these together. The wind snaps it off the line and the old man mistakes it for a dragon god flying in the sky.
* ThreeShorts: Similar to the Manga/ShinryakuIkaMusume anime.
* TitleThemeTune
* {{Tsundere}}: Sonya.
** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by Yasuna in vol. 1 (anime episode 4).
** It also counts as {{breaking the fourth wall}}.
*** Yasuna actually breaks the fourth wall in the dubbed version.
* {{Tsurime Eyes}}: Sonya again.
* VagueAge: [[LampshadeHanging They're probably in high school.]]
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Despite being a supposed hardcore assassin, Sonya seems to be afraid of some things, like roaches, stray dogs (she's not good with animals in general) and ghosts.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: Yasuna would have to be vary lonely to keep coming back to Sonya.
* WorkingThroughTheCold: PlayedForLaughs in chapter 32 (episode 10 in the anime).
* {{Yandere}}: Although not in-universe, the ending song has the line "I love you so much so that I want to kill you".
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Yasuna has normal brown hair, while Sonya, an assumed foreigner, is blonde. Then Agiri's hair is a deep purple.
