No anime about dinosaurs?



If they're anything like games about dinosaurs, you should be glad there aren't any.



Godzilla is a dinosaur.



Wong. Godzilla is a kaiju.



No, is whalegorilla.

Dinosaurs are Kaijus. Kaiju is a combination of "Kai" meaning big/grand and "Ju" which means animal/creature

Feathers are the least of your worries. Science's early projections about how dinosaurs look like were just shrink-wrapping some scaly skin over their fossils and calling it a day. Compare to most living animals and how different their skeleton looks and you'll see why the dinos you grew with are almost certainly complete bullshit.



Godzilla, Anguirus, and Rodan are dinosaurs, mutated by atomic bomb testing.

I love it.



Given that they're more like birds than they are like reptiles, there's probably a lot more flesh and soft tissue. Dinosaurs were probably more like pudgy flightless ostriches than sleek scaly lizards.

Lizards do look closer to their skeletons but they're not 1:1 the way dinosaurs are presented. I mean, look at the rexes ITT, it's glaringly obvious their head is just a skull one you know to look for it. No fucking room for even face muscles in there.

When I'm in a slump, I comfort myself by saying if I believe in dinosaurs, then somewhere, they must be believing in me. And if they can believe in me, then I can believe in me. Then I bust out.

Until science advances enough to provide a fully accurate recreation I'm just going to keep thinking of dinosaurs as giant scaly lizards. The new models still look like they're in a transitional period and look even more outlandish.



I get you enough, I too was obsessed with dinos from 5 to 9. But now that I love visiting museums of natural history of all kinds, it's just pretty obvious that my beloved dinos were misinterpreted. That said, they are cool enough in their own right they shouldn't be outright memory holed because new stuff came out. Just acknowledge them for what they are, that's fine. There's room for several iterations of knowledge. Just like the Regalecus/Giant Oarfish is a weird-ass fish in its own right, but that him being considered the mystical Sea Serpent some centuries past only lends more weight.

As for science advances...Given DNA has a well-established half-life that's way past due from that time, I don't think there's any hope for genetics producing a realistic imagery. Maybe if you trained someone from birth to know absolutely nothing about living wildlife, exposed him to nothing but skeletons and tasked him with extrapolating real animals from that until he god accurate enough, and then set him to do the dinos, that would probably the best bet we'd have, but it would basically just be refining conjecture. A 100% reliable model seems impossible to me.



Stuff like the dinos found in Canada and Montana a few years ago give me hope that there might be more pristine remains left in the world of other species. That way there's less left to interpretation when the tissue has managed to beat the odds and stay preserved over millions of years.



Dinosaurs were a missing link between birds and lizards, anon. Just accept that raptors had feathers AND scales. It just makes them twice the assholes we previously knew them to be since birds are dicks.

I mean, it's like fighting over the fact that ancient marble statues were actually painted like a kindergarten playground.



Anon, those are amateur recreations. The real things looked much better.

I can see there being a real guy who looks just like that so in that sense it's probably a good statue of him.

That was their gimmick phase before they hit the mainstream.
