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 read more
