Well I liked it!
2 April 2008 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

"Flint: The Time Detective" may just have been the most UNpopular anime show from the 90's. I admit, the first time I saw it, I hated it. But then I watched some more of it and very soon I was madly in love with "Flint: The Time Detective". To be honest, I was the ONLY person I knew who liked it; I don't know about my friends, but my sister (also a big anime fan like me) absolutely HATED it! She thought I was weird that I liked it.

Anyways, about the show: "Flint: The Time Detective" is about a little caveman dude called Flint who gets frozen in stone alongside with his dad, Rocky thanks to the shows villains, Petra Fina, and her henchmen Dino & Might (they're very much like Team Rocket from "Pokemon", by the way). Fastforward to the 25th Century, where twins Tony & Sarah Goodman (Sarah kinda looks like Misty from "Pokemon", as well) find Flint & Rocky in-cased in their rock shells. Their scientist-uncle at the Bureau of Time and Space revives Flint but could only preserve his father's spirit in a powerful stone Axe. Unfortunately, their Uncle needs their help: the evil Dark Lord is trying to capture all the mysterious creatures known as TimeShifters--little beings who possess magical powers. His agent is none other than Petra Fina, Dino & Might (Again, more "Pokemon" similarities, namely Team Rocket: Dark Lord is like Giovanni, Petra is like Jessie and Dino & Might James and Meowth). Flint, Rocky, Tony & Sarah, then spend the rest of the show, traveling through time, thwart Petra's missions, take the Timeshifters back to their Uncle's lab and often call in the Timeshifters for backup on various missions.

Basically, this show is like a more lighter, fluffy version of "Pokemon" (though you do have to admit, "Pokemon" is rather dark at times). To sum it up, give "Flint: The Time Detective" a chance. You may not like it the first time you see it, but it may just very well grow on you, as it did on me.
