National Kid is a Japanese tokusatsu television series produced by Toei Company in 1960. Broadcast on NET (now TV Asahi), it was sponsored by Panasonic, then known as Matsushita Electric, to promote the National brand.

  • Comic-Book Adaptation: A manga adaptation of the series by Daiji Kazumine appeared as a serial in Kodansha's Bokura magazine between its July 1960 and December 1961 issues. The work comicalized the first three arcs of the show until its June 1961 issue, when it started to create original plots.] The series' popularity contributed to the increase in the number of Bokura copies in circulation. Kodansha also released the manga in three tankōbon (book) volumes, but only included the first two seasons. All Bokura stories were later released by Manga Shop in a kanzenban edition (collector's edition) on December 2, 2008.
