Dr. Taylor was on a paleontology mission with his son, Max in Africa. Rex, Max's best friend, joins along as well. When Max had stumbled across some magic stone slabs with images of dinosaurs, the boys and their friend Zoe were being called out by the dinosaurs for help. It seems that an evil organization called the "Alpha Gang," led by the nefarious Dr. Z, traveled back in time to hunt down the dinosaurs so that they could take over the world by using those dinosaurs. It is up to Max, Rex, and their friend Zoe to travel around the world, defeating Dr. Z and the Alpha Gang while hunting down the dinosaurs.

I love this anime, I first watched this as a kid back in '10 and I fell in love.

This anime is kind of long but the ending is very satisfying.
I however do recommend to only watch this if you like Dinosaurs or "creature battle" type anime because well... this is a Dinosaur anime.

Personally I love Dinosaurs which is why I adore this anime. I even have some DK trading cards and I am expanding my collection of DK stuff.

Overall in my opinion: Great anime, animations are great for '08. Many different Dinosaurs and... it is just so fun to watch.

Mixed Feelings
Welcome to Digimon… I mean Dinosaur King. For real though, We have three protagonists… two guys and one girl, who find special cards one day and when they rub the card on a stone, it activates. Does this not sound like the D-readers and cards in Digimon Tamers, especially the two guys and a girl concept? And then we have the bad guys, the Alpha Gang who seem to be a rip off of Team Rocket from Pokemon. During the time that this came out, it feels like most shows were trying to mimic Pokemon and Digimon though I think this might have been the ...

Note: the show is intended for kids, my expectations weren't too high even considering that.

I wanted to watch this anime because I remember watching it as a little kid when I was obsessed with dinosaurs. However during watching the first episode I realized it would feel like a task instead of something I'd watch for enjoyment.
The plot is just a Pokémon rip off. Some kids who find ''real dinosaurs'' and need to defeat the bad guys. There's no real depth or opportunity to further develop the plot.
The idea of it is promising but it has been done so much better before.

Leaving that aside the dinosaurs ...

Top 15 Anime Like Pokemon

For the past 20 years, children and adults alike have dreamed of what it would be like to go get a little Pocket Monster partner from a professor and start beating Gyms. But Pokemon is not the only series to feature partnerships and we need something to tide us over while we wait for Sun and Moon!
