Lookin for Osu!! Karatebu (Go! Karate club,)1985
Author
Takahashi Kouji
artist
Takahashi Kouji
Genre
Action, Comedy, Martial Arts, School Life, Seinen
The series began as a fairly humorous and lighthearted satire of Japan's teenage delinquent-gang subculture told from the perspective of Matsushita Tadashi (who also narrates these early Karate Bu stories), a 2nd year student at Kangokou High and a constant target of Kangokou's numerous bullies who beat him up routinely after school. He is almost always accompanied by his best friend Saitou Takaki, who is also constantly harassed.

As the pair grow increasingly tired of being victimized they decide to join the titular Karate Club, which is notorious throughout Osaka's youth gangs for training and producing the city's most hardened and toughest teenage thugs while maintaining the facade of a legit school sports club. But when they join the club, they find themselves picked on just as much if not worse by the club's current members. But as the story progresses they grow to be increasingly capable fighters.

Along with the manga's change in attitude and central character, the various teenage fighters throughout the series grew increasingly stronger and even began to tap into superhuman ki abilities, putting Osu!! Karate Bu in the company of other similar epic Shōnen fighting manga such as Yu Yu Hakusho, Dragon Ball, and Fist of the North Star.

Osu!! Karate Bu was wildly popular in its native Japan, but is otherwise almost completely unknown in most other countries. It spawned a four episode OVA mini-series released over a period of two years from 1990-1992, a 1990 live action movie, and a 1994 Super Famicom fighting game. (copied from MangaFox

Hirayama Hayaka’s parents got divorced, and now Hayaka and her mother are looking for a fresh start in a new town. To make life easier for her mother, Hayaka decides to abandon her private school days and enrolls in an industrial high school without touring it. On the first day, after witnessing a fight between her class’s leader and an upperclassmen, Hayaka learns that all the girls in the school transferred out months ago, because the boys were really out of hand and always fighting. Hayaka is the only girl in school!
The next day when Hayaka comes to school, the same class leader and his friends adopt Hayaka, and she learns that not all the gansters in school are bad! The class leader turns out to be a caring boy, who mothers all the boys in the class, and then extends his care to Hayaka.
As the class leader knows that Hayaka is in danger if she stays unprotected on school grounds with so many gansters around, he puts a metal plate in her book-bag just to be safe. But when a fight ensues between the school gang leader (the banchou) and the class leader, Hayaka hits the banchou on the head with her bag, knocking him out!
As school law among the students states that whoever defeats the banchou becomes the new banchou, Hayaka is the new school gang leader! As the story goes on, Hayaka gains more and more subordinates in different ways. She meets other school gang leaders and rich heirs while increasing her number of subordinates, all while unknowingly charming the class leader with her purity and determination to do the right thing… (copied from Manga fox)
