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 »
The initial letters of the episode titles ("Metamorforce," "Overzone," "Longing," "Destruction," "Intruder", "VERity") spell out the series title. See more »
The first two episodes of MOLDIVER were pretty hilarious, with Mirai and Hiroshi fighting for control of the power. And Professor Amagi/Professor Machinegal was always funny to watch. But, unfortunately, the last four focused too much on the relationship between Mirai and Mr. Misaki, and I feel that this hurt them. Still, the final two episodes did have some decent fight scenes. I recommend that you check this series out and decide for yourself whether or not it merits subsequent watchings.
