The Irresponsible Captain Tylor(help!)

I just bought The Irresponsible Captain Tylor Ultra Edition TV Series. Ok the problem is that the is four disks dont have all the epsisodes(at least i cant find them all.)
These are the episodes i can find on the disks.
Disk 1: 1-4
Disk 2: 8-11
Disk 3: 15-17
Disk 4: 21-23
If anybody has this box set please tell me what i am doing wrong.
Thanks

According to the Irresponsible Captain Tylor website, DVD 1 should have Episodes 1-7 (the Anime On DVD review confirms this). With 8-14, 15-20 and 21-26 on a further 3. The only TV boxset Anime On DVD list has the same disk layout...

Which makes me wonder if you bought the set from a reputable source?

Yeah Tylor's menu is a little lame.

Don't forget about the OVA!

Agreed. I don't know what the menu on the "ultra" edition is like, but I bought the original RightStuf box-set back when I was a kid and this was the menu:



The "button" in the green circle was what we had to hit to find the next three episodes and it was pain to get to it. >.<

same one

ya its the same menu i actually thought the button was decoration when i first noticed. I do like the fact that they put seven episodes on a disk. Mostly you onle get three or four episode per disk. o well more money for them if they make you by more disks. The anime its self is awsome Tylor is a genious.

Oh the series is a classic. Do buy the OVA's as well. They're just as (if not more) brilliant and wrap up the story nicely. Tylor is one of my all time favs. Quality stuff.

The first 2 disks of the OVA are excellent. The 3rd disk is sorta cruddy.

MY REVIEW

This review covers both the main series and the OVAs that followed it.

You know it goes with leaders in anime. They are usually very charismatic, energetic, and set aim to be the best in the universe or something like that. Now, try to see that in reverse. Imagine a guy who has no real leadership or tactics, bored as heck, and with only goal to live a life as dull as possible, to be placed on a seat that demands him being the aforementioned archetype. What you get is Tylor.

ENJOYMENT SECTION: 8

Irresponsible Captain Tylor is exactly what the name implies. The story of a man who dislikes responsibilities and who is trying to get the easiest job that pays well and has the shortest hard labor in it. He decides to join the army. Because, well, Earth was at peace for far too long and the military was spending its years doing drills and mock battles; so why not? Unfortunately for him, as soon as he signs for evaluation, war breaks out and all candidates are immediately accepted. Furthermore, because he seduced the AI that was supposed to evaluate him (yes, it was a cyber chick) he was placed as captain of an entire ship, as there was no time to double-check the procedure. And the fun has hardly began.

Yup, it is a hilarious premise and most of the episodes have really smart gags and situations. And they are not exactly random because there is always a sinister plan some big shot will throw at Tylor, only to be trashed by his uncanny luck and bizarre reaction to everything, to the point where he is unpredictable enough to win. Yeah, sound ridiculous but it works. The humor is based mostly on the ridicule of forms. In martial arts, a fighter will usually do one form of attack and expect his opponent to react in a specific way, at which point he also counters in a specific way and so on. But Tylor doesn’t do forms. He doesn’t know anything about them! He hardly thinks there is a ship to take care of. That is what makes him so funny and unpredictable. Of course, he wins the hearts of everyone on board for this feature, which make the whole deal even funnier.

CHARACTER SECTION: 7 (Tylor alone is a 10)

The humor is indeed smart to the most part and that is what makes it a good show in terms of enjoyment. Tylor becomes almost a cult figure because of it, a sort of Yang Wenli (the lead in Legend of Galactic Heroes) parody. All the rest unfortunately are not memorable for any reason, with the exception of the alien princess, which gets to even fall in love with the greatest enemy in their war with Earth. Plain hilarious. Not that I assume all the characters are dried up prunes or something, it’s just that they don’t really do anything to move the plot forward. Plus, they are rather simplistic fellows, with their characteristics being rather standard in most anime. I still recall the female lieutenant and the twin girls on the ship, and only because of the erotic humor they kept throwing at poor Tylor. Every babe is practically giving signs of interest towards him and all he does is yawing. This is not because he lacks balls, like the average shounen lead out there. In fact, he is quite the lecherous womanizer. He just finds women too troublesome to care getting in a steady relationship. And what do we know about men who don’t react to women who like them? Yes, they are super sexy for playing it hard to get. Hilarious!

ANIMATION: 7, MUSIC: 8

Animation and Sound have nothing much to write about. There is an ok amount of detail given to ships and machinery, and characters are drawn in an almost typical 90’s way. The animators made a fine job at making you feel THIS is an Earth ship, THAT is an alien one and OVER THERE we have a megacity. It is mostly done with the use of different sets of colors. There is action and some bare skin showing occasionally but you will definitely care less about all that than Tylor’s weird take on everything. Voice acting and music score seem to be on a better level, as the lead has a great voice actor to portrait fully his zany character, while the humorous songs and light atmosphere actually help you get in he mood of the series easily. I must point out how the animators weren’t afraid to brake the fourth wall at times and show how they had things made “behind the scenes”. The opening film speaks for itself, lol. They also had budget problems at times and that kinda shows easily. But since they made fun of themselves while doing so, I excuse them. You don’t see many anime where you clearly feel the makers were having fun while doing their work; so good job.

STORY SECTION: 4

The story is by far the weakest part in all. It starts well, it provides lots of progress at first, and slowly it begins to slow down. Eventually, the series ends anti-climactically, while the following OVAs were to the most part aimless adventures in space. The first two though are a blast! But anyway, the story is weak. The war or the supposed romances never result to anything. And that is why Enjoyment wasn’t given a 10.

VALUE SECTION: 7

It is a famous retro series but most modern viewers probably don’t know, don’t care and most like won’t bother watching it. Too many superficial comedies come out every year and most are now close to porn. I say it is a worthy watch but may hard to follow through a second time because you will know all this insanity won’t lead anywhere.

AVERAGE: 6.8

Does anyone know which OST the OVA ED songs are in? One example, "EVERY DAY AND NIGHT" by T's WORKSHOP, doesn't seem to exist anywhere.
