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.
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 previousSentai with Black Rangers.
