Storyline

In the far future, a young man called Justy Tylor is looking for the easy life. To that end, he signs up for the space navy. While his entrance exam ends with him making his computer tester literally malfunction and explode, Earth finds itself in a space-war with an alien enemy called the Raalgon empire and the navy gets a lot less picky as a result. Tylor is assigned to the Benefits and Pension department where he quickly and inadvertently plays a role in resolving a terrorist hostage situation with a retired admiral. As a reward, Tylor is given command of a destroyer. Now he must participate in that war for the safety of Earth in which he proves to be unbeatable. Whether it is by sheer dumb luck or strategic genius, nobody really knows, maybe not even Tylor himself. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

The Last Inaction Hero
24 June 2003 | by (Fullerton, California) – See all my reviews

The Irresponsible Captain Tylor is one of my favorite anime. It's nothing really special compared to many others. And there are a few points that do grate on the nerves (sometimes characters will repeat exactly what the last person just said, for instance).

But that doesn't hurt the enjoyment for me. What speaks to me is found at the end. Tylor's philosophy, the code he lives his irresponsible life by, is one to really consider for a while.

Also, there are moments in the series that are just fun to watch. Tylor will always escape peril, but never in a way one would expect. Just attempt to guess the end of an episode and you'll see what I mean.
