THIS THREAD IS ALL ABOUT THE AMAZING STEVEN UNIVERSE!

Please keep spoilers in the spoiler field.

Let's start this off... Who is your favorite character so far?

My favorite has to be Garnet. She is so calm and collected, always thinks before she talks/strikes and is direct.

What is your favorite song?

Mine has to be synchronize/sugelite

This show is one of those thing where if you come with a bad attitude, you leave with a bad attitude because at that point, nothing can change your attitude. I also feel like if you don't get this cartoon and you're near/past the intended 12-24 age group, you either haven't seen enough cartoons to appreciate the evolution from where it was or just don't have the taste at all. 

 

tl;dr

 

You have it in you to enjoy it or you don't.

 

I hated season 1 because it's all gratuitous introductory/world-establishing episodes, but season 2 is where the charm that got me to keep going in season 1 really shines through.

Thanks you.

This show is amazing because it has real characters. Real situations that people deal with in the world. It's storyline over the whole series keeps you drawn back to it. Imagine watching Breaking Bad, you are hooked because of the characters and the story. It's the same exact feeling, if not more that I get from Steven Universe.
 

This show isn't just about a chubby kid, it's about a family learning what really means the most to them. How they can take the hits from inside and outside their circle, and decide to try and continue on.

 

If you watch only a couple episodes, you are doing it wrong. The first few episodes aren't going to tell you everything about the show.

Yeah, don't worry about about justifying the show to the naysayers anymore; it's pointless. It's just as pointless as other people trying to convince to me that game of thrones is good even though I only watched the first two episodes and thought it was just boring, overhyped Shakespearean crap.

To be fair, what doesn't apply to your statement above?

I've watched some episodes because of my cousin, and it kinda reminds me of Adventure Time. I really dislike it.

Steven Universe was made by a women named Rebecca Sugar, who also worked Adventure Time (she no longer works on it.) That's why you can probably see similarities to the shows. She's really famous for making really good songs for both shows. Especially for Adventure Time. Although she doesn't work on Adventure Time plot wise anymore, she is invited all the time to making songs for it.

 

The show revolves around "gems" who are asexual beings. The whole show is mostly taken place in a city called "Beach City" which has a ton of references, just like the show in general. As put by the creator, the gems you see (aside from Steven) are mere projections of the gem in human-esk form. They don't have a gender, really, but they do have pronouns in which they identify with. All of which (as of right now) identify as female. Gems didn't come from Earth, either. They are all from "Homeworld." Rose and the gems (however they met) love Earth and have been protecting it for thousands of years. Steven is a boy, who's mother was a gem (Rose Quartz) and his father was a human. Thus when he was born, he is half human, half gem. Gems cannot, essentially, normally give birth. His mother had to give up her physical form to create Steven (there's really no part in the show that goes more into detail, but I'm sure Sugar will provide it sooner-or-later.)

During the show the gems really have to deal with the loss of their leader (Rose Quartz) and have to take care of Steven. They don't really know how to take care of him since he is a child and they raised him when he was very little. They come face-to-face with a lot of difficult subjects and other gems that attempt to exploit earth.

 

The show is actually really mature, especially for being on Cartoon Network. Most of the stuff on there is just barely passable by CN, but like Sugar had said "They let us do anything with the show as long as we can explain why it's important." Most of the stuff can really tug at your emotions because that's exactly what Sugar wants. She and Ian actively try to make the show emotional and loving towards everybody of all ages and genders and that's exactly why the show is amazing to me. Steven Universe brings a lot of things together you wouldn't normally see. The show isn't just a "cater to Tumblr." It's a lot more. The explanation above is just my mere wording. If you want a more reasonable plot explanation, then google it.

 

I really do love the show. It's tugged at me a lot. Especially the last "Steven Bomb." If you only watch the first few episodes, you're not going to get the full experience, though I do understand if you don't like it then. The beginning is slow to most people, but later it's a lot better and the art does improve greatly in the middle of the show.

Steven Universe is a great show if you give it a chance. The balance between character- and world-building is impressive.
