A young man who is really the child of an ogre is destined to wander Earth slaying his own kind. When he has killed every ogre, he believes he will become fully human; until then, he is known only by the name of the sword he bears, Ogre Slayer. In each separate story, all set in modern Japan, he meets humans in trouble and deals death and destruction to ogres, but he isn't in the business of "happy endings." An episodic, melancholy quest with a resemblance to Tezuka's Dororo but actually inspired by scenes of sword-swinging schoolboys in Paul Schrader's Mishima (1985), OS has limited animation but attractive artwork and design. The ogres, superbly gross and amoral, are the best things in this short series based on Kei Kusunoki's 1988 manga in Shonen Sunday magazine. The same artist also created Yagami's Family Troubles and Yoma: Curse of the Undead. NV
