“Vash, the Stampede” - worth 60 billion dollars to the one who can turn him in. Bounty hunters everywhere are on the lookout for this legendary gunman, not to mention insurance agents Meryl Stryfe and Milly Thompson, who are tasked with preventing any potential damage that this Vash can cause. But with 60 billion on his head, Vash is not an easy man to find.

vash is similar to cpt taylor... they both act like idiots, but are they really?
Another series with an immense underlying plot and a comical main character. The attitudes of both Vash and Tylor are similar and they seem to be incapable of anything really, but it so turns out they are very good at what they do.

Both of these have a lot of action and adventure--and quirky main characters that you frequently think are insane or hiding something but like anyway.

They also occasionally make you think. But not too much.


Both of these Series focuses on two very diffrent but just as irresponsible lead characters both are quite amusing to watch and you'll find yourself laughin out loud at a few times while watching Irresponsible Captain Tylor accidentaly giving a bomb to an enemy captain and also Smile when Vash the Stampede proves that he's fast enough to beat his enemy by loosing the bouttoms on her clothes, Both anime's are Diffrent though in the way they get serious making them not a guarantead enjoyment if you enjoyed the other anime's however their humor runs just as deep making them both worth a watch too try your taste


If you enjoyed captain tylor, you would enjoy trigun, both main characters share the same personality, they are irresponsbile, but at the same time, its funny to go along their adventures, i highly reccomend trigun to you if you loved Tylors personality. :)


These two series have idiots against the universe, but are they really as dumb as they let on? What seems like pure luck or just unnoticeable skill keeps them alive and kicking till the very end!


Trigun and Tylor both feature main characters that are lazy and hillarious, but can be counted on when the time comes.

Both series feature a main character who would rather not get into a conflict though often find themselves having to do battle.

Tenchi Muyo! GXP

Tenchi Muyo! GXP

Seina Yamada is incredibly unlucky; everything he touches is horribly destroyed. One day while visiting his sempai Tenchi's house, he is mistaken for the man by a member of the Galaxy Police Force and becomes inducted into the force. However, his terrible luck gives him an advantage in his new role: Seina encounters pirates at every turn, allowing his GXP comrades to capture many of the galaxy's worst criminals! Armed with a ship cloned from Ryo-Oh-Ki, Seina sets forth with his mostly female companions to defeat the sinister Barta pirates. Only one question remains: which is more important - capturing criminals or capturing hearts?

Very similar stories, the main character ends up joining the military and succeeds through dumb luck. There ends up being several women fighting for the captain's love and attention. Both space/spaceship themed.


Both shows are about rather idiotic guys who unexpectedly wind up as the captain of a spaceship, constantly get into trouble, then constantly save the day through sheer luck.


Follow the adventures of each main character as they are tossed into strange hilarious situation after another and somehow find a way out of it. The cast is fun and always willing to give the clueless captain a helping hand. Both of these titles are sure to match the viewer's tastes.


Similar concepts, though I felt Seina Yamada in GXP was more of a clueless idiot. The strenght of Captain Tylor lies in the fact that Tylor isn't an idiot; He just holds a different than normal outlook on life and the series true strength is in keeping you guessing whether or not that is a good thing.

Golden Boy

Golden Boy

Having recently dropped out of law school, where he had finished the graduation requirements but didn't actually graduate, Kintaro Oe is on a new self-driven quest for knowledge. His adventures will lead him to a variety of workplaces including a computer firm, noodle shop, and even an animation studio, where his seemingly perverse attitude always tends to get him into trouble with the opposite sex. The moral of the story? Study! Study! Study!

You might like Golden Boy if you liked Tylor as there is a similar theme of a young man with an unique attitude paving his own path.


Everybody knows about the traditional luck of fools. Human with this ability manage to make incredible things without even thinking about it. Tylor and Kintaro are the typical representative of such character. They both don't think much about reasons of their behavior. But people trying to measure them by own yardstick find out that it's impossible to explain what they have on their minds. By all means Tylor and Kintaro have the gift of pleasing which helps them to become friend almost with everybody around them.

Both Golden Boy and Captain Tylor are great comedies which except similar main characters have many funny moments including men and women relationship. Maybe after watching these films you could find out what’s the matter with this traditional luck of fools and how can you make happy all women in the world.


The main characters have many similarities in these two.  The early captain Tylor is a futuristic replica of Kintaro.

Great Teacher Onizuka

Great Teacher Onizuka

With a history of leading a motorcycle gang and getting bad grades in school, why would 22 year old Onizuka ever want to become a teacher? Is it to educate young minds or spread the joy of education? Sure, if it involves being able to look up high school girls' skirts! Watch as this would-be educator uses his own life lessons and unconstituted methods as a means to control a delinquent class of students -- students who certainly aren't as happy to have him as a teacher as he is happy to be teaching...

Golden Boy and GTO share a common bond in their two protagonists. Both exist outside of society's norms, and deviate significantly from what is considered "acceptable" behavior. However, because of this rejection of common societal values, both become unmistakeably genuine and loveable anti-heroes that emphasize the importance of living life on your own terms - not on someone else's.

You should definitely enjoy the character of Tylor, who seems to have a similar attitude and view of life, and also seems to slowly win the confidence and trust of those around him, while also spreading his viewpoints and way of life. Highly recommended.

Both anime feature an exteriorly silly protagonists that do not behave as society would expect of them and completely out of tune with the ambient they work in. Both of them are funny, genius (not always though) in their behaviour and original.

Infinite Ryvius

Infinite Ryvius

What happens when authority and consequence are removed? When the inmates truly run the asylum. On the spaceship Ryvius there are those who would fight for order, and many more who would fight to destroy it. Love, hate, anger, greed, avarice, and perhaps hope are the fuel for the Ryvius, and only one can save those who call it home...

a bit less fun, but still an excellent spaceship crew styled anime is infinite ryvius... also manage to save the day against all odds
While the tone of IR and ICT are definitely different (IR being very depressing, and ICT being a light hearted comedy), both definitely seem to have the same kind of a feeling to them. Character development is a big part of both of these, and conveniently, both happen to also have a somewhat similar plot: a crew of misfits aboard a ship where they really don't belong. I definitely prefer IR over ICT because I prefer depressing type dramas, whereas others might enjoy ICT more because of the comedy aspect. Regardless, I think both of these are a good recommendation for the other.
These two animes share a common bond, both have a crew made up of many different people taking over a new ship, what goes on is a series of confrontations between new enemies from both outside and inside. Both animes show the relationships that grow in outspace, and how life long friendships can turn into bitter rivalries. (side note) Ryvius takes a more depressing turn, while Tylor goes through a more comical route with serious uptones.
