Justy Ueki Tylor is an outstanding example of an odd anime type--the endearing dolt. Just as war is erupting between Earth and the Raalgon Empire, Tyler enlists in the United Planets Space Force because he wants "an easy life." Through plain dumb luck, he ends up in the wrong place at the right time and wins a promotion to captain of the Soyokaze ("The Gentle Breeze"), a broken-down battle cruiser manned by a crew of losers and misfits. Tylor's lack of interest in the crises at hand astounds and appalls his more serious subordinates, especially Lieutenant Makoto Yamamoto, a caricature of a dedicated anime hero, and the impatient Lieutenant Commander Yuriko Star. Tylor's fumbling success brings him to the attention of the 16-year-old Raalgon empress, who orders Captain Ru Baruba Dom to observe, then capture this puzzling enemy. The resulting misadventures are very silly and often funny, especially when they play as satires of the military mindset. Captain Tylor falters when the title character appears less irresponsible than stupid. Akito in Martian Successor Nadesico and Gawl in Generator Gawl are all improbable, comic heroes, but they command real abilities and share a dedication to their duties. Tylor's blithe disinterest in anything but "an easy life" (and the occasional pretty girl) veers between hilarious and irritating, which explains the divided opinions this series generates among fans. Unrated; suitable for ages 12 and up: sexual humor, minor nudity, violence, alcohol and tobacco use. --Charles Solomon

5.0 out of 5 stars Procastinators can succeed in life! February 26, 2001
By lRanma
So what if you have no home. You walk around the streets daily. Your only clothing is a white raincoat that you never wash or change. Tylor is just your average bum with supernatural luck. Imagine destroying a billion dollar android by flirting with it. Then getting away with it while the entire base is looking for a supposedly super spy who had done it. Then not only that, he manages to get hardened terrorists to rethink about their life and bring them to tears. And the next moment Tylor becomes from a bum to the Captain of the Soyokaze spaceship. The story just goes along bringing laughs in every episode. I would say this was my favorite science fiction series.

I have really enjoyed the series so far.
It's filled with 90's anime humor that I love. The characters are great and I can't wait to get the remaining dvd's (oh and it comes with Spanish dub)
