Reviews: Kill Me Baby
A Boring Delight
Kill Me Baby is a slice of life, comedy anime about an average, ditzy, teenage girl named Yasuna, and a professsional assassin named Sonya. The show revolves around the two, and thier conflicting personalitys. On one side you have a clumsy, idiotic, and random school girl, and on the other side you have a serious, professionally trained, assassin/hitman. They are both "best friends," and attend the same high school. ART/VISUALS: The art isn't exactly oustanding, its your basic cute, chibi character design. The world itself, while not stylized at all, is very well made. The real appeal here is the intro, outro, and transistion cards. The animation, isn't anything special, not particularly sharp, but has its moments. Overall its visuals are extremly average and isn't very special. MUSIC/SOUND: The show is full of bland, and boring background music and sound affects. The real star here is the intro and outro. The intro is wacky and full of dleight, while the outro is electronic synth pop, with a good beat. There isn't much to say here, the sound and music is very average and tame, excluding the intro and outro. STORY/CHARACTERS: As a slice of life the story is essentially non-existant. Don't expect any really good story arcs concerning Sonya's hits as they are rarely mentioned at all. Yasuna and Sonya can be hilarious to watch as they yell at each other and inflict physical injuries on one another, though after a while it becomes the same boring gags and becomes very boring. The comedy can be sturdy, but you won't be laughing your ass off and losing your breathe over it, you might get a quick chuckle in here or there. Agiri is where the comedy really lies in the show. Agiri is a "ninja," who makes a quick buck off selling bogus "ninja techniques," though sometimes she can pull off feats that truely only a ninja could achieve. She is the most hilarious character in the entire show, and truely stands out from everyone else. PERSONAL ENJOYMENT/CONCLUSION: I personally enjoyed this series alot, but it can get real bland, real fast. The series is good taken in small doses not in a marathon. The series is totally passable, but if your looking for a light-hearted slice of life, or just want to add another anime to your list, sure its good...but not exactly great.
I wrote a review for this before, and said review quickly turned into one of my biggest regrets. I honestly deserve to get decked for it. I'd delete it if I could, but unfortunately, I can only edit it, so please just disregard this.
