Storyline

In the year 2045, top scientist Hiroshi Ozora invents the Mol Unit, a costume that gives its user superhuman abilities. He uses the Unit to become the hero Captain Tokyo, and earns himself fame and glory... then his younger sister Mirai comes across the suit. A simple ordinary girl interested in shopping and beauty products, she accidentally alters it to fit a feminine user. Now with the Mol Unit switching between a male and female costume, Hiroshi is forced to introduce Mirai to the world, as the new superheroine Moldiver! All Mirai wants to do is play around in the suit, but when things start to escalate with the arrival of the evil Dr Machinegal and his female android army, Mirai must step up to take on this threat.

Trivia

The title "Moldiver" ("Morudaiba") is a pun, as it refers to the superheroine being a "Mol-Diva": the "Mol" refers to the Mol Unit, and the "Diva" refers to a female celebrity (translation issues meant the Japanese "daiba" was translated as "diver" when it should have been "diva"). See more »

Never let your younger sister play with your stuff!
8 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

MOLDIVER is about the misadventures of Mirai Ozora, who discovers her brother's aspirations to become a superhero, but decides two things straight off... One, She can do better... and Two, She can design better costumes... Both are found to be very much true, and Mirai quickly becomes the costumed superheroine, Moldiver, as well as the superhero, Captain Tokyo, when the transformation unit decides to turn her into him.

One thing that surprised me about this anime, considering the abuse a lot of anime got, due to US edits, in the 90's, It was always broadcast with the same intro and outro, to such a degree that you could show the anime to a Japanese otaku of the show, and they could sing their version of Go Go! Moldiver and Time Limit over the English words, and you could do the same in Japan, except the other way round. Also, It is incredibly funny, partially due to the fact Mirai is still a high school student at heart, and the fact you can't be dressed when you transform, a fact that costs Mirai a lot of money in one episode...

Anyway, Buy it, rent it, It doesn't matter... Just enjoy it.
