Kill Me Baby is the most surprising anime of the season, what at first appears to be nothing more than a light-hearted gag comedy is in fact an intelligent and thought provoking look at the pleasures that make us human. In the case of Kill Me Baby’s protagonists, they have a sado-masochistic relationship, which seems to be played purely for laughs, but it’s on further analysis that this reveals itself to be far greater. The apparently dim-witted Yasuna hangs around incredibly dangerous people who constantly hurt her, some may think of this as just a result of her stupidity, but Yasuna merely wants to feel alive, something only the pain her “friend” Sonya can bring her. For Sonya, this is the only way she can find happiness, knowing that someone, no matter how strange, can derive pleasure from her talents which are primarily used for taking lives.
Yeah, that was all a lie, Kill Me Baby is a simple gag comedy, read on to find my thought about what it really is.
