Synopsis

"The year is 2010, and there is a meteor on a collision course for Earth. It would certainly spell doom for whichever were to be caught in its path; however, one such city would get this unfortunate fate.

Wildwood City, New Jersey. The grand town would be caught in the meteor's path. One young boy has the audacity to look up in the sky as the meteor befalls on his own city. Meanwhile, his cousin Josha Ecirp (known as Joshua Esharp in the English versions), has a wandering eye for an 11 year old and spots the meteor as well... once the meteor crashes, all was lost.... or was it? Six years later, a teenage boy who couldn't remember his own name would awaken from the coma placed on him, only to find his surroundings in a state of ruin, filled with Demonic beings infused with technology, called "TechDemons." He finds the one responsible for this disaster: Dark Priceman (Known as Demon King Kakakugin in the original games this series is based off of).

"hmm, You've finally woken up, but your precious city hasn't. You're unable to defeat me, Priceman! [Known as Kakakugin in the original games]. I shall come out on top while you and the city fade into obscurity! Only the Magic Space Rocks the meteor left behind can put an end to me! WA HAHAHAHAHHA!""
—Dark Priceman

and So begins Priceman's First Adventure.... "

—Taken from the Japanese Manual of Priceman 1, Released in November 2007


The anime has a fair amount of differences between itself and the source material,

The Last Battle? The TechDemons are Converted Monsters
October 9, 2016
Priceman falls down a shaft and into Dark Priceman's robot creation facility, where the process of mass-roboticization is seen. Priceman then does battle with the machine, thinking that outsmarting it will cause it to blow up. As the machine begins to overheat, so do the monsters trapped inside and Priceman eventually uses one of the rocks to break open the machine, freeing the monsters that have yet to be completely roboticized. As Priceman rushes towards the last room of the facility, Dark Priceman is nowhere to be found.... except there are four pillars.
* The scene in the beginning where Priceman falls down is based on the transition from Dark Priceman Land Act 2 to Act 3; however, Dark Priceman Land Act 3 uses tiles and enemies from Grassy Sound Lake, and a mass-roboticization room is never seen in the game this anime is based off of.

Priceman, figuring there's no time to unhook it, escapes the base with a lot of monsters in tow. When the base explodes, a bright flash of light is seen and Wildwood City is soon seen appearing from where it was destroyed. It is soon discovered that it was trapped in a Special Zone for 6 years. While Priceman can't help but try to find where Dark Priceman is at, he soon begins to relax on the boardwalk, thinking that all is ok with the world, but Dark Priceman states (in an undisclosed location) that he will return with the key to Priceman's defeat.
*Although it debuts in Priceman 2, the Top Booster is seen for the first time in this episode.
  • A band of thieves is seen at the end of the episode, seeming to strike a deal with Dark Priceman.
  • A Green jewel can be seen close to the end, glowing brightly, implying that Chaos Emeralds could soon play a part in the story.
