Hiroshi Ozora invents the Mol Unit, a device that makes its user invincible. His plans of becoming a super hero are short lived however when his sister, Mirai, accidently modifies the suit configuration. Now she is forced to save Tokyo by herself from the evil Machinegal and his gang of all-female androids.
As I look 20 years back when my dad bought this this anime for me thinking it’s a superhero series that kids. Boy how was he wrong (sort of). For an anime, who wants to create their own superhero and live in it. Here we have Moldiver, let’s dive right in.
Set on a far future world of Japan, here we have 3 lovely family members, The Ozoras. Whose going to have their normal lives turned upside down….. From one of them. Enter Hiroshi Ozora, who dreamed to become a superhero, invented a device, (which looks like of a size of a credit card) called the Mol Unit. Making the wearer faster than a speeding bullet, stronger than steel, Flies higher than a airplane.
….. Pretty much like Superman.
Look at the Speed. Look at the strength.
Powerful like the sun.
A flash of Light! Might for Right!
**Cue awesome theme music**
PLEASE TELL ME that opening theme song is so DAMN GOOD!
Anyway, back to the review.
Here we also have your average teenage high school girl, Mirai Ozora. Trying to pass her classes but also likes to be a model.
And Nozomu Ozora, the youngest child in the family.
Their parents, well, they’re not dead that’s for sure. They’re on vacation of course. A long, LONG vacation.
Okay, okay, enough with the super hero and their lifestyle.
We are going to introduce to “The Villains”
A group of girls that called themselves “The Machinegal” led by an Evil Professor who is hell bent on taking over……
Wow, that’s different!
…..And possibly all of Japan.
The whole story wasn’t very cliché until it gets overused back then. However, There is a nice character development and how everyone reacts with each other. Unlike some animes we have coming out in today’s standards. Overall the story is pretty damn solid with a little bit of plot twist here and there. Makes the whole series watchable.
Plot twists, you better watch out for those.
What can I say about the art style? It’s old but classic and gold. Like, Gundam Wings GOLD for me. Seeing this anime now after 20 years, I can say it aged very well and timeless. Action scenes that has been done here are still pretty damn good.
Makes me want to dive into this world so much more.
The Opening theme for this series is handsdown LEGENDARY! This is one those animes that has it's own original theme song. So rare to be made one in many anime series today.
C'mon, name at least one recent anime series which has it's own made theme song?
The Ending Theme as well is also LEGENDARY which I can give it a listen on Love Song Radios all day. To some, it might not make sense or misplaced to have an ending theme like that be there. However, trust me, it will make sense later when you progress through this anime.
Again, the characters in this anime are all likeable. The development between their interactions and chemistry are amazing. Even their small jokes even hit me. It’s funny, how do they got into these terrible situations and find out the solution to the problems.
I have to say the Dub on this anime, the actors have done a pretty solid good job. I even recognized Doug Stone, the voice actor who worked on Psycho Mantis (Metal Gear Solid PSX). I do have a fun time watching this.
This anime is timeless, and it's a treasure to be added on the collection. The biggest downside I have with this anime is up to 6 episodes max and I would've liked more. How it stands right now, I still give it a PERFECT 10/10
My first REAL anime I ever given a 10 to and also proud giving a recommendation of TITANIUM LEGEND! The best of the best!
Of course, there's no such thing as a perfect but this one is rare shining gem to be found.
Fans around the world love anime for tons of different reasons. One in particular is that it allows them to experience things that exceed their own reality. If characters can fly, so can we... right? Get ready to take to the skies and expose 15 shows that will make your imagination soar!
