''Metamorforce!''

In the middle of the 21st Century, gadgeteer Hiroshi Ozora has created the crowning achievement of his brief career: the Mol Unit -- a device which can enclose its user in a customizable pocket dimension, protecting him from all harm and allowing him to interact with the world in ways that would seem to defy physical laws -- in effect, to become ComicBook/{{Superman}}. Naturally, the lean and lanky Hiroshi sculpts the "event horizon" so that he looks like a muscular SuperHero when the device is activated. Its only drawbacks are that the Mol Unit can only operate for 666 seconds at a time, and its user must be nude or else the formation of the event horizon shreds his clothing.

to:

* MagicalGirl: ... SortaMagicalGirl: The Mol unit is technological rather than magical, but otherwise Mirai is a solid example. Her costume design was certainly inspired by magical girl shows.

* SuperHeroSuperHero: Moldiver was designed to look like a classic comic book superhero.

Afterwards, Hiroshi's ditzy younger sister Mirai becomes suspicious and investigates, eventually finding his development notes and system. Intrigued and excited, she modifies the Mol Unit so that has a second "look" -- one that's more SailorMoon than Superman. Unfortunately, the changes add just a ''little'' instability to the Mol Unit, making it impossible for the wearer to be completely sure just which appearance he -- or she -- is going to get when it activates.
