I usually avoid watching OVAs and anime movies since I mostly get bored fast and lose interest halfway.
But with Karate Bu, it was a different story.
I gave it a shot at first since I'm a huge fan of old school anime, and boy I'm thrilled I did that.
This show is full of manliness, and even if you didn't like martial arts you have to give it a shot.
The theme is about a high school karate club ruled by the great head of Osaka, Takagi.
He is different from your normal main characters, I think he's more like Takamura from Hajime no ippo.
The story is mostly narrated read more

Similar anachronistic club/school where honor is everything and first half. Karate Bu's just edgier.

Badass turf wars the japanese way, Osu!! karate bu is more orientated at schoolgangs than Don: Gokudou suikoden , but both have the groupgang fighting and territorial disputes, Don is more mature and serious and both show some extreme violence the way u don;t see it anymore
Both have the martial arts content WITHOUT too much supernatural powers, osu!! Karate Bu is more comedy orientated than VF, but the way of fighting in both can be somewhat brutal. For many fans Osu! Karate Bu is some sort of an unknown marial arts gem which had good potential to please fighting anime fans.
Cromartie High School is a parody of Osu!! Karate Bu, I can't believe no one made this recommendation before.
