I couldn't be at Anime World Order's panel at Otakon, but I value the guys' opinions so I took a look at their list.
"Natsuki Crisis – girl’s martial arts OAV that has actual cool fight scenes instead of cheap animation and clothes tearing off"
This is what I'm talking about, man! I obviously ran out and watched it right away.
Natsuki Crisis is a short direct-to-video series the likes of which we saw all the time in the 90s: say you have a reasonably popular, long-running manga and you'd like to adapt it to animation, but it's not big enough to go to TV. In these cases, a short OAV-- perhaps two or three episodes but frequently a one-shot-- would be produced and sold to the pre-existing fans of the manga. This is one such production.
Natsuki is a high school karate master, and boy does she love fightin'! And non-lethal takedowns! And friendship! Based on a long-running fight manga, but with only an hour running time, Natsuki Crisis stuffs two story arcs into two episodes. It's got all of the people punching each other in the face I demand, with none of the filler. You know how this kind of thing goes: Natsuki fights against progressively stronger opponents, knocks them through walls, learns fancy techniques, and so on.
It's very straightforward, very earnest, and surprisingly modest with the fanservice. That's refreshing: usually anime about girls fighting (well, given the premise...) is sleazy on the level of Ikkitousen or, at worst, completely fucking odious like the recent Master of Martial Hearts.
This was handled by Madhouse on a good day, so you get an hour packed with well-made fight scenes. Here and there you'll notice a still frame or an animation repeat, but more often (even in the fights against random losers) you'll see something really fluid and exciting, way past what you're used to in fight anime. One of the reasons guys like me gush about OVAs in the 80s and 90s was that they had actual animation budgets, and it shows like crazy here. You don't have to sit through 40 crappy episodes or hours of money-saving flashback sequences to get to the good stuff here, so give it a look. It'll only take you an hour!
