monster rancher and digimon are basicly the same anime. They both take "real world" children, throw them into a digital world with monsters, give them a monster companion, and they have to defeat some form of evil monsterin the end.

The differences are the digimon world is filled with only digimon and the entire digital world looks and feels digital. While Monster rancher's world is also filled with humans and you often forget that he is, in fact, in a video game world.

Jake1989

Both are monster battle theme anime, with not shortage of action and adventure! Growth of monsters in both play a large part in the story as well as the main characters groth as a person!

if you like monster battle then should should really check it out!

Kari5

In both these animes, the main character(s) get pulled into a world filled with talking monsters. They have to make new friends, and battle along side them, to save these mysterious worlds!

DeathCrunch

Diffrence set of heroes and mosters, over-all same themes of fighting your giant monster against the other guys.

Digimon and Monster Rancher both revolve around digital monsters in an alternate world. In Digimon, the characters are enter a digital world that resides inside their computers; they then meet the digimon, which are trained through the use of "Digivices". In Monster Rancher, the main character enters an alternate world inside of his playstation video game. In both series, the monsters train and battle other monsters.

The core concept of the two series is very similar; if you like one you should check out the other.

Both invloe people teaming up with monsters to over come the problems that they face so that they are able to reach their goals.

ConnorD

This and pokemon have a lot alike, like most monster catching series lol only this one was a bit uglier and not as cute, but still, both good series

Jake1989

Both deal with monster battle and the main character on a quest for something. The main characters are funny, and serious about what they want to do.

If you like monster battle then check this out!

DeathCrunch

The basic idea of both series is to befriend and utilize your wild monster, train it and use it to beat up all the other ones.

Pokemon is slightly more light-hearted due to it's younger target audience.

Digimon Season 3: Tamers

Digimon Season 3: Tamers

This unlikely trio must now fight with their partner Digimon created from the mysterious blue card and stop the impending doom that is coming their way. Together with some other friends they explore the Digital Zone to find out what is happening, and to discover the mystery behind the D-Reaper.

In these series, monsters exsisted in the form of video games. The main characters find themselves now face to face with these creatures. Using their knowledge of the video games, the kids must defeat the evil monsters(/digimon).

In a massive online world, people act only as well as their conscience demands. When one player's punishment is to be trapped in this world, a disparate group of people seek the answers why. Their motives are varied; their methods even more so. What stands between when we tear down the walls of reality? Where does our soul end and we begin?

Both series are about a kid that gets stuck in a video game. While in this game, they make friend along the way that want to help them get out. Full of battles and good story, both are a good watch.

Both series are about boys who escape the boring reality by entering a dream-like Fantasyworld where their wish for Monster and Magic has finally been granted. If u liked the journey and advantures of one, you'd surely like the other.
