Justy Ueki Tylor is an average 20-year-old man: lazy, greedy, and a passionate womanizer. He plans to land an easy job with the United Planets Space Force that pays decently and is also far away from the rigorous combat raging throughout the galaxy.

However, Tylor's dreams of living a simple life are brought to a sudden halt when he stumbles into a dangerous hostage situation. Through one strange mishap after another, Tylor miraculously manages to save the hostages and is awarded command of the decrepit space-cruiser Soyokaze!

Now Tylor finds himself in charge of sending mad mercenaries, proud pilots, skeptical colleagues, and harsh commanders through the infinite expanse of the universe, all the while avoiding the looming threat of the Holy Raalgon Empire. What misadventures await the irresponsible Captain Tylor?

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

There is a time and a place to be irresponsible...the military, is not one of them.


I got nothing for this intro. Like Tylor, I'm just to irresponsible. Did this series even deserve one in the first place? Let`s find out, shall we?

STORY: 9/10

So, a "dumbass", two hardasses, two beautiful identical twins, and a bunch of weirdos join together in a dump of a destroyer, and hilarity ensues, as they wriggle through encounter after encounter with the Raalgon empire. That is half of the premise. The other half is that read more

I generally love shows that take themselves seriously. Shows that know what you're here for- a journey that involves deep, interesting characters, in worlds that are interesting to explore, with beautiful art and dramatic sakuga.

This is not one of those shows.

The Irresponsible Captain Tylor is a show about one specific character- the namely Tylor- and how he infuses the serious, dramatic, somewhat scary world he lives in with a flare of comedy. He hasn't got the seriousness, anger, or power of anything that is common at all for people of this world. Instead, he's simple minded, somewhat lazy, and does whatever he wants, read more

Unsurprisingly, many of the more 'epic' anime out there feature fictional military organisations, but so do some lighthearted comedies. This list has a little something for everyone.
