There was once an ogre (oni) mother who gave birth to human looking child. Instead of an ogre`s horn, this child was born with a sword in hand called the “Onigirimaru” or Ogre Slayer. He has no name and is only refered 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 vanished fromthe 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.
