YMMV / NG Knight Lamune 40

  • Better Than Canon: In a sense. The manga version of VS Knight Lamune & 40 FIRE is in many ways better executed than the anime, especially in the final chapters where the original cast of NG Knight Lamune & 40 is actually involved with the final battle and we get to see King Scassher & Queen Cideron one last time in a more dignified way. ESPECIALLY in comparison to the anime where Queen Cideron was destroyed as a result of Da Cider dropping the egg and King Scassher was never mentioned at all in VS Knight.
  • Dork Age: The FRESH OVA for many fans.
  • Ear Worm: Both openings and the first ending, as well as all of the other songs in the franchise.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Gold Mountain and Silver Mountain from the DX OVA. Actually they are barely clothed.
  • Fanon Discontinuity: As far as many Lamune & 40 fans are concerned, the series ended with the final episode of VS Knight Lamune & 40 FIRE and most of them like to pretend that the FRESH OVA (aka Knights of Ramune) doesn't exist.... you can't really fault them for that, to be honest.
  • Growing the Beard: The series starts off like mose kid's shows of it's time, but as the series progress it became more worthy of adult attention, hence why the EX, DX, and FRESH OVA's were targeted at older audiences.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: In the XX novel the main villain of the chapter's name is Sasuke Yaoi, and well... eight years later, would come a certain manga about ninja that's extremely popular with yaoi fangirls.
