About Love of Kill

Love of Kill (Japanese: 殺し愛; Romaji: Koroshi Ai) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Fe. It has been serialized in Media Factory's shōjo manga magazine Monthly Comic Gene since October 2015 and has been collected in nine tankōbon volumes. An anime television series adaptation by Platinum Vision will premiere in January 2022.

Synopsis from MAL:

The silent and stoic Chateau Dankworth is a bounty hunter. Her target: Son Ryang-ha, a notorious killer known for killing 18 high-class officials in a single night. To this day, his murders remain swift, efficient, and bloody. However, after Son Ryang-ha overpowers Chateau in their first encounter, he reveals his own intentions: he too is after her, aiming for her heart.

Son Ryang-ha's attempts to catch her eye are quite unique, to say the least. He offers gifts to her in the form of her current targets, tied up and battered, and will do anything to spend more time together. Reluctantly, Chateau goes along with this act, and so begins the cat-and-mouse game of love between two killers.
