Kill Me Baby (キルミーベイベー Kiru Mī Beibē?), also known as Baby, please kill me, is a Japanese four-panel manga series written and illustrated by Kaduho which began serialization in Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Carat from July 2008. It follows the school lives of a high school girl Yasuna Oribe, along with her friends Sonya, a female assassin, and Agiri Goshiki, a female ninja. An anime adaptation by J.C.Staff aired in Japan between January 5, 2012 and March 29, 2012.

Characters[edit]

Yasuna Oribe (折部 やすな Oribe Yasuna?)
Voiced by: Chinatsu Akasaki (Japanese), Hilary Haag (English)
A normal high school girl and self proclaimed friend of Sonya, who is often friendly to Sonya despite how dangerous she is. She tends to take on the brunt of Sonya's attacks whenever she takes her by surprise or goes overboard with her pranks. She is quite simple minded and is not afraid of Sonya at all, despite the fact that she is an assassin.
Sonya (ソーニャ Sōnya?)
Voiced by: Mutsumi Tamura (Japanese), Luci Christian (English)
A foreign trained assassin attending a regular high school. As she constantly takes on assassin work she is constantly alert and often attacks Yasuna when she takes her by surprise or tries to play jokes on her. Despite her tough composure, she is scared of various things such as cockroaches, ghosts, wild animals and dogs (even domestic dogs). She also has been shown to care a little for Yasuna, as seen in episode 13, where she saved Yasuna from a pit.
Agiri Goshiki (呉織 あぎり Goshiki Agiri?)
Voiced by: Ai Takabe (Japanese), Rozie Curtis (English)
A laid back ninja from the same organization as Sonya. She transferred to Sonya's school for some assignments and stays at a former ninja club room without permission. She often perplexes Sonya and Yasuna with dubious 'ninjutsus'. She is shown to be calm and have long purplish hair.
Unused Character (没キャラ Botsu-kyara?)
Voiced by: Rie Kugimiya (Japanese), Brittney Karbowski (English)
A redheaded and green-eyed character with no name who was supposed to be part of the main cast, but was dropped as Yasuna had supposedly taken on all her personality traits. She has since vowed revenge against Yasuna and Sonya.
