THE IRRESPONSIBLE CAPTAIN TYLOR OVA STORY
From director Koichi Mashimo (.HACK//SIGN, AVENGER, MADLAX, SORCERER HUNTERS) and character designer Tomohiro Hirata (LAST EXILE, URUSEI YATSURA, TRINITY BLOOD) comes one of anime's most beloved action/comedies!
Six long months have passed... The Raalgon Empire has developed a horrible new type of weapon and Tylor has been charged with the duty of intercepting them as they're being transported. But when all that could go wrong, does go wrong - the crew of the Soyokaze finds themselves at the mercy of their enemies. As the hours tick down toward their execution, the crew wonders, has their irresponsible captain misled them or is this all a part of some greater strategy?
The Raalgon Empire is also having its own problems. Prime Minister Wang is still plotting to seize control of the Empire and an overworked Empress Azalyn is looking for any excuse to get away for a while. When she travels to her old summer home, she makes a startling discovery - her childhood friend Ruu is still alive! Once royalty himself, Ruu is now merely a shattered shell of the happy boy she once knew, and he doesn't recognize anyone or anything around him. Deeply affected by her friend's drastic change, the young empress wants to help him, but doing so might lead to war...
