Barom-1 (Japanese: バロム・1 Hepburn: Baromu Wan) is a Japanese manga series written by Takao Saito. The original story was serialized for about a year from 1970 in Weekly Bokura Magazine (週刊ぼくらマガジン Shukan Bokura Magajin). In 1972, the manga was adapted into a TV tokusatsu series titled Chōjin Barom-1 (超人バロム・1) by Toei, and broadcast by Yomiuri TV every Sunday 19:30–20:00 from April 2 to November 26. In this TV series, the original story and character designs by Saito were widely changed. An anime version was created and broadcast from December 2002 to March 2003 by AT-X. In this version the plot and story were also changed from its original version.


One night, a monster comes out from a lake and starts attacking Takeshi Kido and Kentaro Shiratori, childhood friends who were born on the same day. When the monster is about to kill both of them, a being called Kopu calls and tells them that they are the chosen ones to protect the world from the evil creature Doruge. Kopu gives a radar to Kentaro and Takeshi and the ability to transform into the powerful monster Barom-1 by joining their hands. Now both boys must destroy the monsters possessed by Goumon.
