Steven Universe

PostPosted by Hawkeyeone » Sun Nov 16, 2014 10:11 pm

It's that show I talk about all the time!

To be honest though, it IS good. It has a very anime-ish tone and if you're a fan of anime like... I dunno, Sailor Moon or something with magic in it, I highly recommend you check it out.

There's also a comic. However I'm not sure if it's available outside the USA.

Plot(taken from wikipedia cause I'm kinda lazy):
In Steven Universe, the world is protected from evil by the Crystal Gems, a group of intergalactic warriors draw their power from special magic gem stones. The four Gems are Garnet, Amethyst, Pearl and Steven. Steven is a boy who inherited a gemstone from his mother, a Crystal Gem named Rose Quartz. As Steven tries to figure out the secrets to using his gem, he spends his days in Beach City doing activities with the other Crystal Gems, whether it's helping them save the universe or just hanging out.

Throughout the first season it is slowly revealed that the four Crystal Gems in Beach City are the remnants of a once great interplanetary civilization of Gems. Most of the locations visited by the Gems are ruined shrines or locations that were once of great importance to Gem culture, but have become derelict and fallen into disrepair during hundreds of years of neglect. The second half of the season deals with this theme in greater depth, revealing that the Gems are cut off from their home world and that the monsters and artifacts they encounter throughout their adventures are actually Gems who have lost the ability to maintain rational humanoid forms.

Bumping.

No "I'VE NEVER WATCHED IT SO WHY IS THERE A TOPIC" replies, please. If you have Cartoon Network on cable, you're set.

This isn't any niche stuff, either. There is a big fanbase for this show, look around the internet and you'll find proof.

If people aren't interested won't search for it or even post here, that's something I'm sure you know better than anyone else here, and bumping won't change anything.
Deleting a post doesn't delete an action,
if you did something wrong it shall remain as something you did wrong.
This also applies to sheets of paper, if you wrinkle them,
they won’t go back to it’s previous state no matter what you do.
While that is reality, you can compensate it being better,
not everything is lost, nothing is lost to begin with.
Do everything you can to become a better user, it’s not too late!

I haven't seen you around a whole lot, but every time I have, you've talked about Steven Universe.

It's decent, not the best show on Cartoon Network though.

Then what is. Adventure Time has started to go through some legitimate seasonal rot and Regular Show has devolved into only a shadow of what it used to be- whenever it's not focusing on a terribly cliched disaster plot, it focuses on relationship issues. Because of course that's what me as a 10 year old would want to see.

Every other show is kind of "meh" compared to this. Clarence is nice, but I wouldn't rank it on the same tier.

Adventure Time and Regular Show used to be really good, but both started going way too much into relationship problems, and Adventure Time actually has a legitimate storyline, which kinda sucks since I used to like the old episodes when they'd just be going on random adventures. Regular Show, I miss the old ones too. Just random shit involving Mordecai and Rigby and their misadventures, but now, it's like Mordecai is the main character, and every single episode is based around him and his relationship problems (hell, the last episode, he kissed Margaret in front of CJ, I can't even imagine how much annoying drama is going to go on in the next episodes). Yeah, Adventure Time and Regular Show used to be my favorite CN shows, but now, they just aren't as good as they used to be. Still though, Regular Show is on the top of my list.

Clarence, never got into it. IDK, it just feels like a generic CN show, and it isn't really unique or anything (at least in my opinion).

Steven Universe, it's a good show. The idea and plot are pretty good, but it's just not my favorite show on CN. It's up there on my favorites list though.

Plus, some of the episodes of Clarence have atrocious morals. *cough* Clarence's Millions *cough*
