Kill Me Baby began its serialization in the July 2008 issue of Manga Time Kirara Carat manga magazine after a prototype of the strip was published in an earlier issue of the magazine. Houbunsha published the first compilation volume on January 27, 2009, with seven volumes published.
An anime adaptation by J.C.Staff aired on TBS between January 5, 2012 and March 29, 2012. The opening theme is "Kill Me, Baby!" (キルミーのベイベー！, Kiru Mī no Beibē) by Mutsumi Tamura and Chinatsu Akasaki while the ending theme is "The True Secrets of the Pair's Feelings" (ふたりのきもちのほんとのひみつ, Futari no Kimochi no Honto no Himitsu) by Tamura and Akasaki. These theme songs and all of background music are composed by EXPO, a synthpop group consisting Kimitaka Matsumae and Suguru Yamaguchi. The series has been licensed in North America by Sentai Filmworks. A CD Album, Kill Me Baby Super, was released on October 16, 2013 and includes an original video animation.
Theron Martin of Anime News Network found some of the humor repetitious and the mediocre animation as the series' faults but said that it was balanced out with material that did garner laughs and a workmanlike dub, calling it "a series probably best-enjoyed one or two episodes at a time; trying to marathon it can be a brain-melting experience and is so not recommended. Keep it to smaller doses, though, and it delivers often enough to make a reliable comedy diversion." Aiden Foote, writing for THEM Anime Reviews, also found the animation middling but praised the slapstick humor and its delivery by both Yasuna and Sonya, concluding that "Overall, almost from nothing, Kill Me Baby! seems to have itself a sweet little niche in the congested four-panel market. What it lacks in a large cast, it makes up for by diligently bringing the characters it does use to life."
