a mildly bizarre gag comedy which stood on a level of its own; kill me baby hands down is the best comedy this winter [ and definitely a winner for me ]; one that is potent enough to inflict 9998 lvl damage upon myself and my only companion zange-chan, the latter of whom kept telling me [ she's still on her extended leave, btw ] on just how much she loved the series week after week [ wait until you get bombarded with her constant 'wasa wasa camo camo' spams on skype - i wish she would stop. yes ].
moving on. a quick glimpse at the series might lead one into hastily mistaking kill me baby as yet another series produced by kyoto animation; but no, this particular one instead is being produced by your ever productive friends at j.c. staff. there is no mistaking that kill me baby bears huge resemblance to kyoani's lucky star of course - art and design wise, enough to fool casual anifans and newbies alike into believing that this one might indeed be the work of kyoani.
overall, kill me baby's presentation and execution are delightfully solid. the entirety of its characters bleeds much life in them [ whoever thought yasuna wasn't annoying enough deserved to be punched on the face twice - ed ] - with exceptionally grabbing personalities for each respective characters to our greatest delights. not to mention the jokes are so absurdly funny [ despite being overly random most of the time, as with kyoani's nichijou ] that we [ zange included ] kept failing at holding ourselves from laughing hysterically. also, both the character and background art themselves are fantastic - reminiscing the exact same style previously found in lucky star.
