Vampire hunter Saki Fujimiya is the epitome of poise and finesse-that is, when she's not around Miyoko Kujou! Why does Miyoko get such a rise out of her? Well, to begin with, Miyoko's a vampire — Saki's natural enemy — but that's not the only reason Miyoko gets under Saki's skin. Despite Saki's best efforts to kill Miyoko, something keeps stopping her from biting the bullet and ending it all for good.

Killing Me! is a supernatural action comedy yuri manga by Akiyama. Yen Press released an English version in 2019. As of now, the series is considered discontinued.

Tropes appearing in Killing Me! include:

  • A Taste of Their Own Medicine: Growing tired of being frequently bitten by Miyoko, Saki manages to grab a fleeing Miyoko and takes a big bite out of her neck. Miyoko's flustered reaction to said bite distracts Saki from finishing her off.
  • The Ace: This is how Saki is seen by her classmates, which causes them to be amused by how much Saki loses her cool around Miyoko.
  • Action Girl: As a vampire and a vampire hunter respectively, Miyoko and Saki are quite capable of fighting despite being high school girls. Chiharu counts as well.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Surprisingly, Saki. In Chapter 3, she gets upset with Miyoko after she explains to her that she will stop preying on her blood when Saki becomes an adult. Later on, when Miyoko attempts to suck another female student's blood, Saki forcefully gets in between the two and declares that the only blood Miyoko should suck on is hers. Only some time after does she realize what she had just said.

  • Cut Short: Killing Me! was discontinued after one volume's worth of material for unknown reasons.
  • Daywalking Vampire: Miyoko can technically function fine during the day, but it's implied this takes a lot out of her.
  • Forgotten First Meeting: A bonus chapter reveals Miyoko once helped a young Saki find her mother many years ago. Miyoko realizes what happened upon seeing a photograph of Saki from back then, but Saki doesn't put two and two together.
  • The Gunslinger: Saki's Weapon of Choice when attempting to slay Miyoko.
  • Hair-Contrast Duo: Saki, who's serious and dedicated to her mission to kill vampires, has black hair, while the flirty, playful Miyoko has pink hair.
  • Holy Water: While weakened by things like crosses and garlic, Miyoko is mostly able to laugh them off. Saki surprising her with a water pistol filled with holy water is one of the very, very few things to noticeably piss her off.
  • Ill Girl: Miyoko and Saki's classmates see Miyoko as this, as forcing herself to attend classes regularly during the day makes her significantly weaker.
  • Monster/Slayer Romance: Miyoko is fairly open to her attraction to Saki. Saki, on the other hand, struggles between returning Miyoko's feelings and her duty to slay her, which she often fails at doing.
  • Lesbian Vampire: Miyoko, who goes as far as to reference Carmilla, the original Lesbian Vampire.
  • Older Than They Look: Unsurprisingly, Miyoko is much older than she looks, though she notes that she's rather young for a vampire at a "youthful" 150.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: Invoked in an unusually romantic way by Saki when defending Miyoko from Chiharu.
  • Sempai/Kohai: Chiharu, Saki's kouhai, looks up to her deeply and is disturbed by the fact that Miyoko seems to have changed her so much.
  • Tsundere: It becomes apparently pretty quickly that this is what Saki's deal is.
  • Vampire Hunter: Saki, later joined by her kouhai Chiharu.
  • Yuri Genre: A rare yuri story with a bit of an action bent.
