The henshin sequence is the same, except that the cacoon effect is missing and Sanagiman no longer explodes.
DespÔ Gundan was actually introduced in the 3D movie Jumping Out, Inazuman on March 16, 1974. The movie which came out 10 days before Inazuman the TV series ended featured both the Shin Jin Rui and DespÔ Gundan, and included events not seen in either TV series. Although Toei seems to consider Inazuman and Inazuman Flash to be two seperate series, each with their own opening and ending theme songs, I have a Japanese book which includes an episode guide that treats them as one 48 episode series. Which actually makes sense since Inazuman episodes 24 and 25 include Despar robots (Udespar appears as Nazo no Roboto Senshi [Robot Warrior of Puzzle]), Inazuman episode 25 ends with the Japanese for "to be continued" on the screen and the Inazuman Flash credits include scenes that are actually from Inazuman.
Inazuman means "lightning man" and in Inazuman Flash he gains the ability to strike his enemies with lightning bolts.
