vash is similar to cpt taylor... they both act like idiots, but are they really?

TheBurningCrow TheBurningCrow says...

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.

Sphinx Sphinx says...

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.

Mirvra Mirvra says...

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. :)

seraphim2000 seraphim2000 says...

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!

Renegadefalls Renegadefalls says...

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.

Martian Successor Nadesico

Martian Successor Nadesico

When Akito Tenkawa went looking for answers about his parents' deaths, he had no idea that he'd be indoctrinated into the spaceship Nadesico not only as a cook, but also as a mecha pilot – a job he wants nothing to do with! Alongside his childhood friend Yurika, stoic Ruri, otaku Gai and other misfit crewmates, Akito and the Nadesico crew find themselves in the middle of a brutal war against both the dreaded Jovian Lizards, and the military itself, who wants the civilian ship under their control...

Both share sort of a similar goal of poking a bit of fun at the space epic genre, with a likable cast and a nice mix of humor and seriousness.

azerok2b azerok2b says...

Irresponsible Captain Tyler pretty much IS Nadesico, with the slight exception of having been conceived and aired a few years earlier

himurakenshin himurakenshin says...

Quite similar shows. Daily life on spaceships, primarily comedy, but enough seriousness to keep you caring about what directions the plot and politics take during the more consequential episodes. Plenty of lovable characters Similar animation style as well. Both solid shows, especially for those looking for a light hearted but semi-serious space series.

Userabc123 Userabc123 says...

There both comedy space operas . They almost compliment each other. The main characters in each are a bit clueless but may( or may not) no what they are doing/planning. I do like the relationships more in Nadesico but If you watch the ova of tylor then they have even more in common. Despite all the crews differences they all seem to need each other in each anime(there a family). These anime are 2 of a kind and I dont know why They arent reccomended higher than they are now on animeplanet.

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?

thatonekid thatonekid says...

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.

Drahken Drahken says...

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.

chii chii says...

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.

Nonextant Nonextant says...

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.

TheBurningCrow TheBurningCrow says...

Vandread is just another great space comedy with an interesting underlying story. The humor is very similar to that of Tylor.

Vilho Vilho says...

Space adventures, Girls, Boys, Lots of laughs... And whit these series things never get too serious.

Vandread is about Girls and boys why do silly things in space.

And Tylor is about silly captain who does stubid stuff in space.

sloggerK sloggerK says...

Like ridiculously fun and silly shows set in outer space? Both Vandread and Irresponsible Captain Tylor are good bets.

Infinite Ryvius

Infinite Ryvius

In 2137 AD, the sun released a massive flare across the solar system, creating the Geduld, a dense field of plasma and debris. In the midst of a routine descent into the Geduld's upper layers, the training ship Liebe Delta is crippled by a terrorist attack, killing the trainers and command crew - and exposing the vessel’s military secrets, which may hold the survivors’ only hope. With nowhere to hide from their darkest fears, the young trainees must work together to navigate the ravages of a solar system filled with mysterious, powerful foes. Yet, as the ship is forced into greater isolation and its inhabitants become increasingly desperate, they must struggle to survive against not only the forces that pursue them relentlessly... but also each other.

a bit less fun, but still an excellent spaceship crew styled anime is infinite ryvius... also manage to save the day against all odds

sothis sothis says...

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.

Shadizzy Shadizzy says...

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.
