Editorial Reviews

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 in 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 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! Contains the complete 26-episode TV series with remastered video from the Japanese DVD release! DVD Features: Completely remastered video from the Japanese DVD release! Scene access, Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo audio for English and Japanese dialogue, English subtitles and English on-screen translations. PLUS: Character bios, UPSF ship data, Raalgon Empire ship data, textless opening, textless closing, liner notes and Nozomi Entertainment trailers.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Box Set Ever February 21, 2006
This review is not about the series in general. Chances are, anyone who is interested in this product knows a great deal about the series; how good Irresponsible Captain Tylor is, and how legendary it has become as one of the defining series in anime. I will say that this series was good enough for me to watch episodea entirely in Japanese, without knowing a word of what they were saying because the International Channel didn't have subtitles.

No, this review is about the box set. And boy is it one heck of a set indeed. Not only does it come with the entire TV series on four DVDs, but it has the original soundtrack for the TV series, two supplemental material discs, which adds to what already comes on the series discs (when added together, the total viewing time is over fifteen hours), and two hardback books, one being the first volume of a novella--the second half of this is in the OVA Ultimate Collection, which I also highly recommend--and a book of production material and facts about Irresponsible Captain Tylor and its creators. All of this comes in a sturdy box about the height of a CD but about eight-times thick, and each separate item comes in its own pack. And for less than a hundred bucks.

This is just not a box set that should be missed, especially if you're a fan of Irresponsible Captain Tylor, or of anime in general. The value, the content, and the quality put into making this product is apparent, and though the size of the box may throw some people off, you'll quickly get used to this. In fact, I'll bet you'll start wishing that every box set came as cram-packed as this one. And if you get this, I highly recommend also purchasing the OVA Ultimate Collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful Space Opera Spoof August 23, 2009
Irresponsible Captain Tylor captures the best elements of classic science fiction humor with some unusual twists. The traditional elements include the crew of misfits in a battered old destroyer, who (in spite of the odds) survive and frequently triumph over the alien forces and their own somewhat unscrupulous military high command. Irresponsible Captain Tylor provides its unique spin on this sub-genre in the form of Captain Tylor -- young (age 20) with his entire military background consisting of a short stint in the military pension office. The surprisingly well developed and generally sympathetic elf-like aliens wonder whether Tylor is a genius or an idiot. Tylor's crew of misfits in the destroyer Soyokaze decide that while he doesn't embody many (or any) military virtues, he is fun to have around. Tylor is warm-hearted but also magnificently irresponsible.

The series of 26 episodes has a well connected trajectory. Only a few episodes contain pointless filer. Fortunately, the writers left the question "Is Tylor a hidden genius, a lucky idiot, or (perhaps) a bit of both?" unresolved. The result is a surprisingly satifying conclusion.

In the finest tradition of space opera, the laws of phyics are cheerfully ignored. My personal favorite is the flag waiving on the bows of the destroyer Soyokaze in deep space. (The emblem on the flag appears to be a tomato.)

The music is pleasing, with a mix of cheery pop and light jazz. One later episode contains a lengthy space battle choreographed to classical music that is a tour de force.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it to the end November 13, 2011
While I was watching the show I felt like the episodes are somehow connected to each other like no other anime series. In most series what happens in one episode stays in that episode or remembered via flashbacks. In Captain Tylor characters actually talk about past adventures or mention how their captain behaved in some certain situation, making the 26-episode series a whole.

The characters are well drawn and developed during the series. Almost all of the minor characters contribute to the story, some do feel very cliche but likeable nonetheless.

I also loved the animation style, its definely old-school, none of that CGI crap. Not that I'm against it but I have seen some CGI stuff terribly gone wrong, or wasted on crappy subject matter. The ships and the characters are very well designed. The Soyokaze, Captain Tylors ship, looks like a WW2 u-boat, has that nostalgic look.

On a minor note, this series and the movie "Down Periscope" has a lot in common. Coincidence, I can't be sure. But if you liked one of them you will love the other.

Finally, before I forget, I have seen many, many animes and this series has one of the best endings I have seen, loved it, definetly. I highly recommend it for the core anime fans.
