Hiroshi Ozora has always wanted to be a superhero, so he decided to do the only logical thing: create a transforming power suit called Moldiver! With it, he can fight the forces of the maniacal Professor Machinegal, who desires all of the rarities of the world for his private collection - but when his sister Mirai accidentally changes the suit's design to that of a beautiful girl, Hiroshi's plan goes terribly awry! Now, Hiroshi and Mirai must share the suit, alternating between manliness and beauty, to put a stop to Professor Machinegal!
Hanegi Manami is a junior high school girl with unusual relatives, to say the least. Her grandfather's passion is building unusual things, and has just had his latest concoction delivered to their doorstep -- the mecha known as Del Power X! With a driver's seat specially designed for Manami, its powers are rivaled by no other. Unfortunately, her grandfather's rival Von Getsueru and a plethora of other people are determined to prove that fact wrong, regardless of who is in the pilot's seat! Manami must fight for love, pride, and above all else, the loss of her precious bento!
Del Power X is a much more comedic and funny look at a person who is forced into fighting with a superpowered suit. If you liked Moldiver, I think you'd like Del Power X more.
Low budget, low level script for some quick watch that bets (and imho fails miserably) everything on superpowered action with some comic relief.
Through a series of unfortunate events, Earth was suddenly attacked by Albert Houser, owner of the offworldly Gedo Corporation. To expel the beast-like invaders, one man created Ariel, a woman-shaped mecha designed to defend humankind! But this mecha required a special kind of pilot, and who better for the job than.. his granddaughters?! Now, to save the human race, Aya (who would rather be studying), Mia (who would rather be playing sports) and Kazumi (who actually likes the job) must pilot the feminine Ariel, before Houser can complete his nefarious plan!
Ariel and Moldiver are both humorous looks at a person who must battle in a superpowered suit. Both are fairly uninteresting at times and will appeal to a niche audience, so if you liked one, try out the other.
The city of Ikebukuro has become the victim of a series of robberies by a group utilizing robot suits. It's up to The Counter-Demon Seed Special Agent Headquarters, run by five average guys, to come up with a solution. Though he was drunk at the time, Chief Hattori submitted a proposal and it was approved! The plan? Look for an idol to combat the enemy and have her fight for the city using a special armor suit designed by "some random doctor." From twenty-eight people chosen at random, they finally decided upon a young pretty blond female because of her cute appearance and superhuman strength. Now all she has to do is defeat the robbers and become an idol and everything will turn out right, right?!
Moldiver and Assemble Insert are both light-hearted looks at an ordinary person who has been given extraordinary powers. Assemble Insert is far more humorous and entertaining, but fans of one should probably enjoy the other.
Joe Shimamura is one of nine humans abducted and experimented upon by the mysterious “Black Ghost” organization. Awakening to find he has super powers no mere mortal could possess and the name of Cyborg 009, Joe escapes from the lab to meet up with the other eight humans that escaped. Together, they join forces to stop the mad scientist Dr. Gilmore, their creator, and Black Ghost itself. Can they prevail against this nigh unstoppable enemy before the world falls into their villainous control?
Though Cyborg 009 is about a female assassin and Moldiver is about two people who share a high-powered suit, both have the same campy, 60s-style feel to them as far as the villains go. This might be a stretch, but try out one if you liked the other.
Unbeknownst to humans, demons from an overlapping dimension walk amongst them in the streets of Tokyo. The balance between the worlds is kept by the crow guardian Karas and Yurine, its master and voice of the living city. However, the time of harmony nears the end as the once-Karas Lord Eko returns. Seeking to purge humanity for its evils, he terrorizes the city with his minions that feast on human blood. The ultimate battle between good and evil awaits; can Yurine and her newly initiated Karas prevail against Lord Eko and protect their city against his monstrous horde?
This might be an odd recommendation, but bear with me. Moldiver is a somewhat comedic look at a modern superhero, while Karas is an absolutely badass look at a Japanese Batman. So if you are down for something more serious and better on every level, check out Karas.
