Obata Yousuke lives on Pagopago in the Fiji archipelago with his father Tetsuo, a specialist in oceanographic biology. After a storm strikes the island, Yousuke rides to the lagoon with his Jet Ski and finds a strange baby dinosaur there. He takes it to his father's laboratory and names it Coo.

Coo grows and seems to be a large marine reptile (a baby plesiosaur) which lived there some 65 million years ago. But Coo soon becomes an object of interest for the French secret service, assigned to protect the nuclear interests of France in that otherwise peaceful part of the world.

Tōi Umi kara Kita Coo (遠い海から来たCOO, Tōi Umi kara Kita Kū, lit. "From a Distant Ocean Came Coo") is a Japanese novel by Tamio Kageyama. It won the Naoki Prize in 1988.
It was adapted into an anime film named Coo: Tōi Umi kara Kita Coo "Coo: From a Distant Ocean Came Coo"), released in 1993 by Toei Animation. The story revolves around ...

Coo is a unique, but rather dull, fusion of the summer '93 box office hits, Jurassic Park & Free Willy.

The Good: The animation, it has very good lines, colors and flow.
The Bad: The story itself. A child finds a baby dinosaur. Then some army dudes want him. The End, inspired A LOT by Free Willy!!!

Should you watch it? I wouldn't suggest it, it is what it is and hasn't aged well, at all. It is an average, at best, animated movie and too long for what it offers, which is almost nothing interesting. Even the characters themselves are not that well written and rather generic.
