"One day, five children from Earth disappeared to the edge of space. And twenty years later..."
In 1966, five children were kidnapped by an alien group known as the Alien Hunters, for the sake of the Reconstructive Experiment Empire Mess, who wanted samples of humans from Earth to experiment on. They were rescued by the Flash alien race, each one of the five rescued children was taken to a different planet of the Flash solar system for training.

Each of them was trained separately from the others in a range of superpower abilities which would will allow them to fight the Reconstructive Experiment Empire Mess.

When they finally returned to Earth in 1986 to combat Mess, who is now trying to invade, they use the opportunity to search for their birth parents. It is later that they learn they can only stay on Earth for one year before the now-alien atmosphere of their true planet will physically harm them (the Anti-Flash Phenomenon).

  • This is the first Sentai series to have a second robo, Great Titan.
  • This is the first Sentai series in which the last names of the Rangers are not revealed.
    • It is also the first Sentai series where all the Rangers have their names be in katakana format.
  • This is the first Sentai to have an opening narration before yelling the show title.
  • This is the final Sentai season to not have "Sentai" in the team's official name.
  • At the time of Flashman's release in 1986, it was identified as the "10th Super Sentai" series, starting from Himitsu Sentai Gorenger. Due to this, it marks the 10th anniversary. However two years later, Choujuu Sentai Liveman would be considered the 10th, with the franchise only counting from the modernization of the concept with 1979's Battle Fever J. Goranger and J.A.K.Q. would not return to Super Sentai status until 1995's Chouriki Sentai Ohranger was identified as the 19th, at the time of the 20th anniversary of Gorenger.
  • While initially from Earth, this is the first Sentai series in which the Rangers did not grow up on Earth. The first team to be comprised of Rangers not at all from Earth wouldn't be until Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, 25 years later.
  • First Sentai team to not have a mentor.
  • This is the only French-dubbed Sentai season in the 80s before Turboranger to not be titled under a Bioman name.
  • Despite lacking a Power Rangers counterpart, their suits still appear in Super Megaforce. They are given the name Prism.
  • Yutaka Hirose (Ley Wanda), Jouji Nakata (Sir Cowler) and Yoshinori Okamoto (Bo Gardan) are castmates in Choujuu Sentai Liveman.
