Mother's Basement Tells You Why You NEED to Watch The Irresponsible Captain Tylor!


Captain Tylor Is Coming To Blu-ray!

Earth's Fate Depends on One Man. But is he a Total Idiot? Or a Complete Genius?

From director Koichi Mashimo (.HACK//SIGN, AVENGER, SORCERER HUNTERS) and character designer Tomohiro Hirata (LAST EXILE, URUSEI YATSURA, TRINITY BLOOD) comes one of anime’s most beloved action/comedies: THE IRRESPONSIBLE CAPTAIN TYLOR! This masterful blend of humor, adventure and drama has been a smash hit in countries all over the world!

Shortly after enlisting in the prestigious United Planets Space Force, Tylor experiences a bizarrely meteoric rise through the ranks placing him as Captain of the Destroyer Soyokaze. He's excited to accept his new post, but little does he realize that the Soyokaze is just a dumping ground for misfits and other eccentrics that the military can't figure out what to do with. Fortunately for Tylor, he never planned on working very hard anyway, so it's a perfect fit!

Introducing the 28 1/4th Anniversary Ultra Edition

The Irresponsible Captain Tylor Collector’s Ultra Edition includes all 26 episodes of The Irresponsible Captain Tylor TV series as well as the complete 10-episode OVA series on Blu-ray for the first time ever in North America! Also includes 3 extra DVDs with over 5 hours of extras and possibly more! The Ultra Edition hardback 10” x 8” Art Book will be numbered and includes… well, that’s up to you!

Announcing Pre-Order Stretch Goals

Simply put, the more pre-orders we have, the more we’ll add to the Ultra Edition. The base Ultra Edition is already great, but it could be better. If we can reach our pre-order goals, it shows us that we can invest in extras such as a brand new Captain Tylor story, creator interviews, and more. See what we have planned below!

Due to the possibility of printing and shipping delays of the art book, we will stop taking pre-orders on 10/31. This allows us plenty of time to get everything added to the book based on preorder goals and to ensure it arrives by the 4/1 release date. So if you want to guarantee your copy, your order needs to be placed by 10/31 at 11:59 CST.

Pre-Order Now

There’s only one way to reach our stretch goals: Pre-order the Ultra Edition! It’s that easy!

You have two options, you can buy the set OR you can buy the set AND have it autographed!

That's right, you can get the Ultra Edition signed by the series creator himself, Hitoshi Yoshioka! Yoshioka-san does not travel to the United States and has rarely signed autographs in the past so this may be your only chance to add his signature to your collection!

We will also include your name at the top of the special Thank You credits we add to the set.
