Card-game-based anime has too many fierce battles.

Cannot stress the terror enough.

I even tried putting safety as a concern, even though the action is illegal! The reason. SPINOSAURUS. ABUSE. It's the internet's thought to the big daddy of the dinosaurs in a lackluster Japanese anime! May or may not be from the creators of Dragon Ball Z, worst show on Television.

Fantastic!

It is a great series which I personally enjoyed watching. I would recommend it to any families who want their kids imagination to expand!

Mostly a Missed Opportunity

Its not just that Dinosaur King is a tv commercial for a Sega video game... its not just that the producers regurgitate Pokemon and its shallow characters - its that they take naturally terrifying and awesome dinosaurs - which kids love without reservation just as they are - and give them superpowers. My 4 year old neighbor insists that T-Rex does not breathe fire. "They're called dragons", he said! Dinosaur King's claim to any educational value is pathetic compared to what could have been done. Most of all this is a tremendous missed opportunity for what might have been!

This show rocks! . there is a little violence but a good show. I think it's cool that Zoe has Runo Misaki's pigtails ;)

Defiantly for kids

I found this show rather dissappointing as I had played the arcade game and read the manga, they were enjoyable and I still remember them today, this show however is full of uninteresting characters (except from maybe Seth), predictable outcomes and some moments that left me shaking my head. This show could of really benefited if it had used the story from the original manga and arcade game, they could of had a field day with hat, but sadly the story barely has anything connecting to the source material except from the characters. Also there is parts in the plot that happen that you would think affect the characters but is just forgotten next episode, like when Zoe tries to kiss Max, you would think this would lead to something or affect the characters in some way but it is never mentioned again, as I progress throughout the series its disappointing to see hat we are never told any of the characters backstory's So overall disappointing.

Scandalous

I have no problem with this show EXCEPT that in some episodes, the women (by their clothing) are depicted almost pornographically. I understand that the anime genre does this a lot, but there's no excuse to do it in a kids' show. I cannot allow my children to watch it anymore. Young minds seeing women's bodies like that will be corrupted.

Very thought filling program

As a child I loved this show and there is a very good theme and story line that is easy to follow. It is not all that violent and keeps a great moral standing of teamwork and friendship. It shows children that you should never give up and to stick close to your friends

This anime is really good and a lot like Pokemon but it's not a copy of it!

I love this anime. It's sort of like the Pokémon anime and manga that you've probably heard of. The anime is really good and is about kids who found these cards that could summon dinosaurs and they can evolve and all. There is violence like when the dinosaurs fight but nobody dies in it. There is no blood or gore so that is good. There are some positive messages and it shows friendship throughout the show.
