Irresponsible Captain Tylor begins

At the recommendation of a friend, I managed to watch the first four episodes of Irresponsible Captain Tylor. Now I’m seriously hooked. That Tylor guy is one damned lucky sonnavabitch, like “Ehh? That was a bomb?!” God, that was hilarious.

Watching those four episodes made me laugh so hard, my guts nearly broke. This shit is even better than RAPE!RAPE!RAPE!RAPE!, considering how old it is.

Here is a brief summary from ANN on the show: ▼

I’m surprised to see a familiar voice in the show in the form of Emi/Yumi, both voiced by Mika Kanai (Satoko,Higurashi series; Vanilla H & Normad, Galaxy Angels). Never knew she was that old, lol. And the girls of the Soyokaze are all kinda hawt, in an old-school kind of way, especially Ltr. Cmdr. Yuriko Star who is appealing very much to the tsundere lover inside of me. Ohh~ I really miss those old school tsun-tsun types.

God, I can’t wait to get the full series and watch it. From what I hear, this series will get pretty epic in a lot of ways.

    I own the entire series, and yes, it does get epic. The entire crew gets their fair share of the spotlight, not just Tylor (although he is the most entertaining of the bunch).

    Definitely a show that needs to be remade/revisited.

    Kuro, how did it take you this long to watch Taylor? It is a classic and probably the smartest comedy in the last 2 anime decades?

    Crispin Freeman utterly owned Tylor! And there’s the awesomeness of Lisa Ortiz and Rachel Lillis as well!

    I remember going “moe~” when I first saw Azalyn.

    I’d like them to “finish” the series. Or at least the OVA series. It kind of…well cliffhangers if I remember correctly.

    But the main series…the ending to total lulz. But then most of the series is that anyway. How many chicks want him for unknown reasons? Well by the first episode he has the main base’s recruit hologram computer tester hot and bothered (and heartbroken even) over him. It’s going to be a bumpy 36 I think episodes.

    Freakishly lucky ships.

    I think I put up Azalyn during the nominations phase of International Saimoe back in February. Was trying for some old school moe.

    one of my fav. The old VHS fan-sub really got me into anime. I would skip the OVA though not as good, but there is more char development.
