A Pittsburgh detective is kicked off the force for beating a rape suspect and moves to L.A. There, he becomes the central force in a bullet ridden neighborhood battle to win back its streets from brutal gang members.
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.

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 »

Like the last guy said, "it started out good." To finish that statement: after the clever first episode, it's a steep decline downhill. This is supposed to be some kind of action-romance-comedy hybrid, and in trying, strikes out with one swing.
Action? Every sound effect is muffled, every fight scene weak. It's not much fun watching Moldiver clean everyone's clock, partly because it's not done with much style and partly cuz there don't seem to be any laws of physics. Romance? Unconvincing -- she's just chasing some guy we've learned nothing about. Comedy? Didn't laugh once.
By the way, what was the plot?
