There was once an ogre (oni) mother who gave birth to a human looking child. Instead of an ogre's horn, this child was born with a sword in hand called the "Onikirimaru" or Ogre Slayer. He has no name and is only referred to by the name of his sword. Though he appears human, he is pure ogre. Believing that he will become human once all of his kind have vanished from the world of humans, he sets out on his destiny to slay all of his kind. Even now, in the mother world of Japan, he is still out there slaying ogres.
Sorry this is my first review, and I am glad that this might be the first review for this series on MAL. Sorry for the spoilers.
Onikirimaru is about an "ogre" who looks exactly like a human. His duty on Earth is to slay all of his "ogre" brethren so that one day he may become a real human boy. This is the story of the JAPANESE PINOCCHIO except his nose doesn't grow longer when he lies, and he also carries a sword... Whatever let us continue with the review.
My experience with this OVA is pretty poor. Due to the fact that I do not speak or understand Japanese, I was force to watched Onikirmaru in subtitles. This was pathetic because the subtitles were pretty POOPY. For instance, in the subtitles they called the "ogres" ghost, which to me makes more sense than calling them "ogres". What would made it more precise if they were just called demons because I am pretty sure that "ogres" are able to move through walls, come out of a women's, or become gas-like beings. I also understand that in Japanese "Oni" means ogre so yeah... fuck me!!!
Also I was confused for awhile how the "ogre" slayer was named Onikimaru, but then his sword was call Onikimaru, but it's was just the fact that he had no name and took the name of his sword.
Animation: The animation/art in Onikirmaru was pretty average for it being about 20 years old. So I can't really complain much there except for one thing... RANDOM BEWBS!?!?!?!
In every episode, there is always a female being possessed by an demon(ogre), and some FUCKING how they always stripped naked revealing their BREAST. Boobs are cool and all but really, do we need to see every girl exposed when an "ogre" pops in. Like no joke, the only time when you see boobs is when "ogre" is like 'Ey yu mine now GURL, YEAH GIVE a taste of dem MELONS' then WOOSH clothes GONE!
Music/Sound/ Voice: Onikirmaru's music is nothing special, but you can kind of feel how outdated the sound of the OVA's ending song. The sounds are also nothing to talk about that much also. The voice acting I got to say is pretty GOOD because I don't understand Japanese so everything in a foreign language sound legitimate.
Enjoyment: Overall, this anime has been OKAY. It is sad that the concept of the story wasn't explored much more than it should have by the studio producing it. read more
