Dinozaurs (Japanese: ダイノゾーズ, Hepburn: Dainozōzu) is a 2000 Japanese anime television series created by Saban Entertainment and Sunrise. Unknown to many, Dinozaurs transported millions of television viewers to a world of epic battles, ferocious creatures, and ultimate good versus evil.
What’s Dinozaurs about?
In the epic saga of Dinozaurs, five space-traveling Dino Weapons arrive on Planet Earth to protect it against their nemesis, the Dark Dragon and his team of ravenous Dinozaurs. Unlike the NASA Mars Rovers, these AI beings transform into massive, supreme dinosaurs – an ingenious nod to the mighty creatures that once roamed our planet.
The Power of the Dinozaurs
As the series kicks off, Kaito, a seemingly average teenager, stumbles upon a mysterious gem at an excavation site. This gem awakens the dormant Dino Knights – the protectors of Planet Earth. Kaito then launches into a battle against the villainous Dinozaurs, who are wreaking havoc on Earth in their quest for the Life Force.
The Dino Knights
If you think mastering the moves on Fortnite is hard, imagine commanding a team of gigantic, autonomous Dino Knights! These are the Dino Weapons in their Earth protecting forms, who vow to shield the Planet from any harm.
Dark Dragon and the Dinozaurs
Dark Dragon, the archenemy, with his classic villains’ club of Dinozaurs, are driven by their pursuit of the Life Force current, which is crucial for their survival. This force is stored deep within the Earth’s core, and its exhaustion would mean the end of life on Earth – a threat even more severe than any climate change campaign projections.
Dinozaurs: A Silent Pop Culture Icon
Within the realm of the classics, Dinozaurs has managed to hold its own by providing a distinct mix of science fiction, fantasy, and action. Every episode dramatizes the eternal clash between good and evil, transforming simple storytelling into an awe-inspiring visual spectacle.
Even after several years of its release, Dinozaurs continues to ignite the same thrill and nostalgia amongst its fans. The series is groundbreaking, much like the impact when the meteor that led to the extinction of dinosaurs gave rise to the Amazon rainforests. So, let’s celebrate this remarkable series as it roars on our screens and travels through the annals of time silently yet profoundly influencing generations of audiences.
