It just so happens to line up with facing down another Raalgon attack. Will Captain Tylor prevail? Will the Soyokaze stay cleaned up? Find out as we review another wacky episode of The Irresponsible Captain Tylor!
We’re back! This week Captain Tylor is earning himself more enemies than friends. Even those that are on his side are against him as the admirals plot to take Tylor and his crew down. Will they be successful, or will Tylor’s dumb luck work out in his favor yet again? Find out as we review Episode 6, “The Tale of the Lizard’s Tail.”
The Tooning Japanese crew is back together to talk more about the crew of the Soyokaze. Oh, and their ship gets a brand new crew member this episode! Who, you might be asking? Well, it’s the beautiful Harumi, of course! Not sure who that is? Well, then you need to listen to this week’s episode! We review Episode 5 of The Irresponsible Captain Tylor, “‘Angel in White’ Begins with an H.”
Wow, it has been a little bit since our last update. A lot has happened over the last month, but we are still around! And to make up for the loss of time, we have a double review this week! Tylor officially becomes a captain, and Bill and Matt take us through his rise to power. Join us for an in-depth discussion of Episode 3, “The Ship Sets Sail, but Misgivings Remain” and Episode 4, “Enemy! Crisis! We surrender!” I love these titles.
We’re back with more Captain Tylor! This week Tylor does some important work for the Space Force’s pension department. Be prepared for a healthy dose of laughs and social commentary in this week’s review of Episode 2, “Hey, Ho! The Happy Pensioned Life!”
Hurrah! We’re finally ready to reveal our first review for Season 9! Matt gets his first choice of anime series, and he had picked maybe he favorite of all time, the weird and wacky The Irresponsible Captain Tylor! Settle in for a hell of a journey as we go episode-by-episode through this cult classic 90s anime. Our first episode, “The Mysterious Irresponsible Man,” introduces us to our titular character as he tries to join the United Planets Space Force. Will he be successful? And how much damage will he do with his power of seduction along the way? Guess you’ll have to listen to find out!
We are getting closer to beginning Season 9! Before we do, it’s time to share the bloopers from Season 8! For only having 7 episodes, we sure had a lot of extra audio. As always, listener discretion is advised. Enjoy the goofiness!
While you wait for the start of Season 9, enjoy a few extra special episodes! Our first post-FLCL episode ties back to an episode last season where the anime name dropped the 1970s tokusatsu show Robot Detective! This week we watched the first two episodes (links below) and gave our full breakdown. And we laugh a lot, too. We hope you enjoy, and seriously go watch the episodes of this weird little show!
It’s time, everyone! We say farewell to FLCL in this mega final review of the series as a whole. This episode has everything: some trivia, a deep dive into the characters and themes of the show, a comparison to Evangelion and Gurren Lagann, our revised anime rankings, and the big reveal of what we are watching for Season 9! This episode is definitely a must-listen episode!
Somehow we have already found our way to the end of FLCL! This week we go over Episode 6, “FLClimax”! And what a climax it is! Well, kinda. We’ll explain in our review. What will come out of Naoto’s head this time around? Who knows! What we do know is that next time we’ll have our fill breakdown of the series, including a comparison between this show and the other two Studio Gainax anime that we have covered (Evangelion and Gurren Lagann).
