Kill Me Baby Blu-ray
About Kill Me Baby Blu-ray
This Kill Me Baby complete collection contains episodes 1-13.
Yasuna Oribe isn't your typical Japanese high school girl. For one thing, she's a little slow on the uptake, and for another, her best friend, Sonya, is actually a highly trained foreign assassin who's in Yasuna's class as part of her assignment. Though perhaps Yasuna's definition of "best friend" is a bit strange, as Sonya has the habit of regularly attacking Yasuna, especially when startled.
However, as noted, Yasuna isn't exactly the sharpest tool in the shed, and while Sonya knows precisely what to do with every one of those sharp objects, even she is hard pressed to deal with the day to day oddities that seem to fill their class schedule. Things like: escaped bears, voodoo curses, juggling and killer mosquitoes. And puppet shows.
And just in case Yasuna's life wasn't weird or hazardous enough, there's her ninja classmate, Agiri, swarms of bees and assassins targeting just about everybody, a mysterious red-haired girl with a personal vendetta and the perils of slipping in the public bath.

Goofy and Entertaining Gag Show
by Mako -
Kill Me Baby is pretty much very funny fluff--there's nominally a bit of plot, but for the most part it's based on a 4-koma gag manga and shows. There's a bunch of largely non-sequiter little vignettes per episode, they've got frequent punchlines, and they're pretty consistently funny.
None of which is a bad thing, because it's pretty darned funny most of the time, and even when a gag falls flat there's another one right around the corner.
The main jokes are that Sonia is a deadpan assassin with a hair-trigger personality Yasuna is goofy, cheerful, and will never cease doing things that get Sonia to reflexively almost kill her, and ninja-girl Asagiri is perpetually stoned and has silly ninja abilities.
I certainly enjoyed it.
If Azumanga Daioh and Pani Poni Dash had a child...

...it would be Kill Me Baby. Young girls plus a classroom setting is a common formula for many a show, and Kill Me Baby takes that recipe then adds assassins and ninjas for a "flavor" that falls neatly in-between the cutesy slice-of-life of Daioh and the absurdist/out-there humor of Dash.
Dim-witted but with a kind heart, Yasuna is like any other girl, except her best friend Sonya is an assassin. Problem is, Yasuna is NOT Sonya's best friend, no matter how hard Yasuna tries to engage her. Then there's Agiri, their ninja classmate, who's always willing to help...provided Yasuna can pay for the oh-so convenient ninja tools Agiri just happens to have on-hand.
I don't know Japanese so for those of you who are purists, I can't tell you how closely the English dub follows the original script. I watched the dub without subtitles and enjoyed it, and thought the VAs seemed to have fun with their roles.
