Delightful Space Opera Spoof

"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."

"This is a collection of the classic anime Irresponsible Captain Tylor. Full of laughs, fights, and the sort of logic that can only exist in anime, this is a must-have for any true fan. Easy watching, and with chapters set up for easy skipping of title sequences."
