About Irresponsible Captain Tylor:
From director Koichi Mashimo (.HACK//SIGN, MADLAX, AVENGER, SORCERER HUNTERS) and character designer Tomohiro Hirata (LAST EXILE, URUSEI YATSURA, TRINITY BLOOD) comes one of anime’s most beloved action/comedies: IRRESPONSIBLE CAPTAIN TYLOR! This masterful blend of humor, adventure and drama has been a smash hit in countries all over the world…and now it makes a triumphant return to DVD in a sleek new boxset packed to the brim with amazing extras!
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 had 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…
