Kill Me Baby: Complete Collection (2012/Sentai Filmworks Blu-ray)

Picture: C Sound: B+ Extras: C Episodes: B-

Yasuna's is your typical ditzy 10 year-old who is not the sharpest of the bunch, but her best friend (self proclaimed) Sonya more than makes up for it. Sonya is a highly trained foreign assassin, but more often she finds she want to kill Yasuna for messing with her or using her skills for trivial games. Often, Yasuna antics and ideas test Sonya's patience or gets them in trouble and if things weren't dangerous dangerous enough another one of their classmates is a Ninja, Agiri, whom Yasuna asks Agiri to show some of her (questionable) ninja gadgets, skills or tricks. Either way there is no dull day as school for these girls in Kill Me Baby: Complete Collection (2012).

All Yasuna wants to do is play games with Sonya, but what kind of games can you play with someone when their day job is professional hitman/woman? Of course, this just ticks off Sonya each time Yasuna tries to ambushes her or surprise her, often it triggers Sonya's conditioned reflexes to almost kill Yasuna. While Sonya IS an assassin, she still is a 10 year-old and it doesn't prevent her from being scared of ghosts, animals and insects (which Yasuna uses to her advantage).

If you like cute killer little lolis, then look no further, there is always something amusing about when the cute Japanese girls in pigtails and pulls out a big gun or knife. It is a comical anime, it makes fun of spies kids (but don't try any of these things at home kids).

The 1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image transfer is unfortunately on the very weak side with detail and depth issues throughout, but the DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 2.0 Stereo lossless mixes on each episode is fortunately very well mixed and presented with warm exceptional Pro Logic-like surrounds. Extras include in clean opening and closing animation and trailers.
