Synopsis

Justy Ueki Tylor had his life all planned out: join the military, get a cushy desk job, and then retire with a big fat pension check. The perfect plan... until he wandered into a hostage situation and somehow managed to save an admiral! Now Tylor - a man who wouldn't know what discipline was if it bit him on the backside - has been made Captain of the space cruiser Soyokaze.

The crew of this run-down ship is the craziest rag-tag team of misfits you're ever likely to see, and they're not too fond of their complacent new leader. But they'd better learn to work together, because they're about to go head to head with the mighty Raalgon Empire. For better or for worse, the Earth's fate has been placed in the hands of a man who's either a total idiot - or an absolute genius!

I didn't expect to like this series so much. The animation is average and of an older anime era, and military/sci-fi anime is always a hit or miss with me. But you can't NOT love Captain Tylor. As the title says, he's irresponsible... on of my favorite anime music videos has hime singing "Reponsibility, what's that?" But he's also a very happy, easy going or care free individual who thinks life should just be fun. Though he makes enemies within his own fleet due to his idiotic luck, he manages to win the respect and eventually friendship of many of their foes (I'd say he read more

One of the most popular archetypes of pop-culture is that of the accidental genius: the guy who achieves outstanding success with little visible effort or awareness. The most popular example of this as of late is that of Captain Jack Sparrow from the Pirates films, but it goes back all the way to such classic fables like "The Brave Little Tailor". Again, the accidental genius finds itself in Irresponsible Captain Taylor, and it's just as effective and entertaining.
Justy can't be bothered to look up his middle name Tylor is in many respects the idealic hero. While caring and compassionate, he remains firm in his persuits read more

Recommendations

Space opera + comedy = these 2 series.

I know that Nadesico has its own brand of zaniness and humor but it is almost the same with Tylor since both heroes (Tylor and Akito) are clueless when it comes to feelings although Tylor excels in being an idiot or savior anytime. The crew of both flagships (Soyokaze and Nadesico) have their own share of oddballs who chew on hapless officers anytime.

So if you liked space operas with a dash of romance and a generous helping of offbeat humor and drama, these 2 series are for you. ^__^
They both have very irresponsible people who everything works out for and are vital to the people around them success. They are impossible to fire.They both have a love plot that never develops. They are very funny and have a fun feel to them. GTO the main character will try, but in ICT he doesn't appear to give it any effort.
