YMMV / Choushinsei Flashman

  • Awesome Music: Flashman! Fighting Pose
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Sara is the most popular character, and the only one to find her Earth Family in the final episodes.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: VERY popular in Brazil. It also fondly remembered in some Latin American countries as Peru, where it was one of the first Super Sentai series to be shown on television before Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers.
    • Flashman is also universally adored in South Korea among children of the late 80's and 90's. Being released on VHS in a edited down format, it became one of a seldom few Japanese series of any sort to see a legitimate release in South Korea (not counting pirated vhs releases of Toku and anime as well as subsequent Mock Buster series) prior to normalization of relations with Japan and resulted in several more Super Sentai (and Even a couple Metal Heroes) shows to be released in a similar format. It was so popular that when Power Rangers was released in South Korea, it gained a large Hatedom among Korean kids for thinking it was a rip off of The "Flashman series" as they refered to the Sentai vhs tape releases and at one point, a MockBuster called "Hero Flashman" was released to cash in on the series popularity.
  • Name's the Same: Choushinsei Flashman has nothing to do with either George MacDonald Fraser's series of novels or the Robot Master.
  • Stock Footage Failure: The upgraded Rolling Vulcan ends with a shot of a monster exploding surrounded by Ranger-colored smoke bombs ... except there's a black plume instead of a green one. That's because that shot came from two previous Sentai with Black Rangers.
