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 ...

Mixed Feelings
Captain Tylor became one of the first anime to truly touch on a comedy space opera, a dimwit main character, and eventually his very own harem. Directed by Naoyuki Yoshinaga (Maison Ikkoku, Patlabor) gave some hope that this could be a good comedy like Ikkoku with some space comedy elements emanating Patlabor in the mech genre. It was not too far off, but since the anime was produced by Tatsunoko Production (Genesis Climber, MegaZone 23) there was bound to be some disappointments in what could have been something special.

Much like the companies past works, nothing spectacular in animation, sound, or music; just a plain average ...

Preliminary (3/26 eps)
Absolutely terrible. If you are 12 years or older or you don't have brain damage, then you will not like this. guaranteed. it is very stupid, very unrealistic, not funny, terrible art, a complete waste of time. It takes itself too seriously to be a complete parody, yet it's dumber than any parody I've ever seen, with absolutely horrible characters. the base conception seems good, an idiot lucky guy. too bad the implementation is -1/10. the guy is beyond stupid, too unrealistically stupid to be funny, because it doesn't have any resemblance to realism, so it just becomes meaningless. He "acts" so stupid that no ...
