KNOWN DVD SECRET(S): None that I know of
When the OAV’s came out back in 1993 or so, I fell in love with this anime.
Moldiver has a very good storyline combining superhero fantasy and romance.
As for the DVD, I don’t know…for some reason I thought things were sharper on my LD than on DVD but I can be wrong. The audio is typical for it’s time.
The big bonus is the special that was included on the Japanese LD version. Some people I know paid big bucks just for that special and now here are all six OAV’s + the special in one DVD.
When I first bought the LD’s they were like $39 for one oav. You get all episodes for $17.99. That’s one heck of a bargain!
