Mirai Ozora is a normal girl obsessed with shopping and modeling, who one day accidentally stumbles on her brothers invention the "Mol-Unit" and becomes a superhero.
2045. Superhero Moldiver rights wrongs and strikes poses all over the
city, and pretty Mirai Ozora discovers that Moldiver is actually her
brother, Hiroshi. Hiroshi's suit allows the user to repel and defy all
laws of physics, which makes flight, bullet-proofing, and incredible
strength easy. Mirai decides to be a superhero herself, and Hiroshi gets
a shock and a half when he finds himself wearing his sister's revealing
Bright, colorful, and fun, Moldiver is packed with
gentle jibes at the superhero phenomenon and very aware that the only
crime in this kind of anime is taking oneself too seriously. With
plotlines and characters from a kiddie-cartoon, but a tongue-in-cheek
self-awareness aimed at a far older audience, it's also another
excellent example of how good English-language translation can be. The
humor in Pioneer's dub crosses international borders with deceptive
ease. Neophytes might be a little confused by Professor Amagi's attempt
to raise the Yamato from the seabed in episode four, but they should be
told that this old battleship has many resonances for a slightly older
anime audience. It's as famous in Japan as the Titanic in the
English-speaking world, with extra baggage brought by its place in
military history. For anime fans, of course, it's also the star of Star
Blazers, and its appearance here is a tip of the hat from Pioneer's next
generation to the classic creators who inspired them to pursue their
careers in the first place.
The initial letters of the episode
titles ("Metamorforce," "Overzone," "Longing," "Destruction,"
"Intruder") spell the name of the series, right up until the final
episode ("Verity"), which crams the rest of the title in one go-possibly
a sign of an early cancellation.
