This is the single best episode they've made thus far.
That fucking fetish fuel out the ass, that godlike animation, that actual threatening sugilite, that Pearl song, that EVERYTHING.
What a fucking good show.
Sugilite did nothing wrong
>be a consciousness born from two other beings
>only used for heavy lifting duty (and very rarely at that
>get to exist and live
>other bitch expects you to go back to your divided state and basically go in a coma
>all you want to do is live, and somehow you're the bad guy
I marathoned this show and caught the new episode last night. I'd heard nothing but bad things from /co/ and expected something awful. Honestly, though? I think this is the best cartoon out there right now. first couple of episodes are weak, but the later ones have really good pacing and art.
I'm sorry, I couldn't resist the temptation...
I hope not. Sugulite was fun as fuck and I hope she appears again.
I know it's from tumblr, it's just that they're fast with fan-art and I'm building a folder
Pearl looking at the temple was a nice detail
I don't think Estelle has shown up to the comic con events, but to be fair she is British and expensive to book.
What I wanted to see was Sugilite be the one who trains Steven. I thought he'd want to learn from the best and then they'd have a training montage with a song in the background or something where Sugilite and him are singing. Too bad she was too beastly to do it.
They didn't say anything. He's just panicking about the tumblr bogeyman. And if they did say anything, it was a few radical stupids.
Sugilite seems pretty reckless. I have a feeling that the gem fusions don't really have a conscious that really has feelings that don't contribute towards it's objective. They're just constructs that are formed to accomplish a mission. So we're probably not going to see Sugilite picnicking with Steven and Pearl.
that's what fanarts for
I thought it was cool that Sugilite was so unstable since it partially calls into question how correct Garnet is about her decisions. I'm hyped to see how a fusion between her and Pearl would work. I'm guessing smaller and tactful since the fusion didn't need to be careful, just HUGE.
You think it would be smaller? I thought it was their physical heights that would influence the fusions height instead of their personality and strategy. But I can definitely see Garnet and Pearl's fusion as shorter than Sugilite, even if they're both taller than Amerhyst.
They don't seem to really need new ones unless there's a special occasion like when they went to the beach party or when Pearl woke up from healing. Maybe if Garnet or Amethyst got injured enough to need to recover in their gems, there'd be a wardrobe change.
Also, animating new outfits every other episode is work, bruh. Unless you have consistent models of it already drawn up.
Makes sense, just seems like a lot of other characters have different outfits every so often.
Yeah, sort of streamline almost or something fast but strong. Opal was big and graceful but definitely not as big as Sugilite. So perhaps any combo between Peal and Garnet would be a medium between the two other fusions. If they always need a specific fusion for specific jobs, Sugilite for smashing, Pearl and Garnet seem like they'd be an opposite to that. So smaller and with a better head on her shoulders. Does that make sense?
Yeah? I'm not disagreeing, I just want to hear your reasoning. Because if their fusion was the biggest, Garnet would've chosen that, right? Unless their fusion is less prone to recklessness and mindlessly crushing things.
That does make sense. With Sugilite's brute strength it would make sense for her to be so huge and bulky. Garnet/Pearl's fusion is likely to still be huge although not quite as gigantic, but still sleek. I think she'll be the most competent of the 3 since she'll be a combination of the brains and the brawn.
Yup, that's what I was thinking! Though this isn't totally counting what a fusion between Rose Quartz and the others would have been like but the temple seems like a hint to what we'd see? A cool extra face with a forehead gem from Pearl, heart/chest gem from Amethyst, the gems on the palms from Garnet and Rose Quartz's big, big hair. If the temple is to scale, looks like their fusion would be the biggest of them all. And that more than just two way fusions are possible.
But getting back to the original point, yeah. A Pearl and Garnet fusion would probably be an equal combo of the physical strength Pearl would need and the tactfulness Garnet needs, just to balance them out.
To be fair Amethyst doesn't provide brute strength Garnet does (given she's the most physically powerful), Amethyst seems to provide the raw emotion that overwhelms normally neutral Garnet. Hell that's how their mindsets are setup:
Garnet = No emotion
Amethyst = All base impluses
Pearl = All control
Oh wow, I never thought of the temple as to scale. It could quite possibly be the actual size of their fusion considering Garnet and Amethyst's fusion size. That's a cool thought!
I think Garnet would be the dominant personality in her and Pearl's fusion. Since she isn't the dominant personality in her fusion with Amethyst. So we'd probably see G/P fusion being more on the graceful side, but also serene in her personality like Garnet.
Definitely not, Sugilite was the best choice for what they needed for that mission. You'd go to her for plans and the like. But she's also not too good under too much pressure, Garnet is so they'd probably fuse up into something really bright and confident. Size aside, that's just what I'm hoping to see.>>63758716
Yeah, in terms of brute strength, no doubt about it. Just what they needed for a simple smash and go mission.
Ooh, I like that idea! Yeah, I thought of something like armored, a knight or something.
What if all three can fuse together and make something as big as the temple?
I can guarantee you that's untrue, I was there when the episode came out
the majority of the people I follow were raving about how cool Opal was, the majority of the people in the tags were doing the same thing, and some very small minority were grousing about how her design was culturally appropriative
Ooh, I like that theory. It also seems sort of like, once they fuse, whatever they fuse into is its own personality. Sugilite overpowered Garnet and Amethyst, something like that. So maybe it's both. One dominant personality but at the same time, the fusion is a gem on her own.
Last thread somebody asked for it
God help me I have too much time on my hands
>Using the race card to justify autism
You know, it's times like this I wonder why I am on tumblr.
It seems as if they have a mind of their own. Like the Toa Kaita. Also, I like how instead of doing the ciche voice mash. They each have a unique voice and personality.
Actually, the first time was after a three month incident with /su/ in the early days. the sencond was after a imposter tried to copy me. But understand that I am the one and only true Scaps.
you had one job, /co/
To be fair, most of responses to her post ranged from saying that she's reading into something that's not there to outright calling her a retard, and in spite of the social justice guys on tumblr being really vocal and the majority of the userbase being left-leaning, that seems to be par for the course whenever someone accuses a show with a big enough fandom of being racist.
A while back I made a page over there because the webcomic general threads said I should to get my art out, and in spite of all the apprehensions I had towards the site based on what I had seen of it on /co/, the privilege checkers seem to be vastly outnumbered by people who just want to discuss "ships" from cartoons they like or share art.
I'm told it's because the CN's upper management is shuffling again and the new guy (guys?), wants to start up a mega block of of the latest shows in August, supposedly they are saving the episodes for then.
I was referring to the mega block falling apart, most people don't relentlessly hunt the internet for episodes of their favorite kids shows so i don't think the ratings will hurt too bad for the leak.
I think the thing I'm not too fond of with this episode is that we didn't really focus on Garnet and Amethyst. Pearl has the focus of a lot of episodes, and she has a pretty fleshed out character. We know almost next to nothing about Garnet. With Giant Woman the focus was on Pearl and Amethyst fusing, with this one the focus was on Pearl questioning how strong she was. I would've liked to see more of Sugilite. But this was still a good episode, don't get me wrong!
We're gonna get more Garnet episodes down the line, don't worry.
Don't forget, this is the first Pearl-centered episode that was just about Pearl. Giant Woman was more about Pearl and Amethyst, and Steven the Sword Fighter didn't actually have much of Pearl in it outside the first few minutes. They're taking their time, everybody's going to get their time in the spotlight by the time it's done.
Goddamnit...fine give me the details
Now *I* am regreting that request.
Perhaps more sexy Garnet action?
>I thought violence would solve it
That should actually work
A magical explosion hits Greg and turns him into a so called "werebara" and starts raping dudes at night without knowing. Eventually, he goes after Steven and the Gems must defeat him by turning him straight again.
>Mfw I'm listening to a Daft Punk/Bee Gees/Justice Mashup while looking at this
The people that watch these things don't probably have neilsen boxes to count as viewers, so who cares, also, the neilsen ratings have expanded and are counting Twitter #mentions now, they will be just fine.
I'm not sure how disturbing you're gonna make, but keep in mind it will focus more on horror/suspense.
>on a cold night, Lars decided to take a shower
>suddenly, he hears a grunting noise and heavy breathing
>"Hello?" Lars said nervously
>Lars went outside and saw a large silhouette across the street
>Lars ran back inside and got in the bathroom
>"You've just been working too hard, Lars. Just need to take a hot shower." He said to himself
>when shower, a loud thud is made when a giant hand hits the shower wall in front of Lars
>Lars is horrified and slowly turns around, seeing the monstrous werebara
>behind the curtain! you hear Lars' screaming and Greg's crazy banshee noises
>the next day, Connie's father is inspecting Lars' body, which was torn in half from the anus up
>"I must stop him." He says
Oh yeah, Connie's father plays detective and May or may not fall victim to the werebara.
It wasn't an "incident." It was you being an insufferable prick and lowering the quality of the threads with your incessant shitposting. You were the one that sparked the downfall of these threads and the only sad thing left is the small, couple of people who still want you here.
You never added anything positive to these threads, or other threads for that matter, and those with even shred of sanity know you never will.
I'm telling you this, you're a burden. Nothing will prove otherwise.
That post has like 150 notes now. It cracks me up how sjws always say that Amethyst and Garnet are "PoC" or "coded as black" and Pearl is "white," when all they are doing is projecting racist stereotypes onto alien characters.
I really hate Tumblr sometimes, but at least they make a lot of fanart (and porn).
Oh yeah, and I'd rather have the Greg rape/murder scenes to not have much detail when it happens, but depict the grizzly aftermath. That way, it makes him mysterious and the reader uses his imagination of how disturbing it must've been.
If it needs to depict rape/murder, it's basically your typical Shrek is love; Shrek is life scenario without the consent, with a little Alien/Predator sprinkled on it. Remember, Greg is a bara monster, penetration can tear someone in half.
Why do I crack up so bad when I imagine Rebecca Sugar looking out the window, seeing her brother and singing that song in her deep voice?
This in a nutshell.
These threads don't really encourage fanart being made. Hell, tumblr is a better source of inspiration than this cesspool. I'm not saying that to troll or stir up shit, these threads have been awful for months.
Fine, I shall call this fic: Greggy want Goosh Goosh.
Pearl's interactions with Steven are so adorable.
Pearl blushes over every little thing, it's like her emotions are slowly growing unstable.
Garnet's powerful, but she needs a shitload of restraint to keep herself from hurting anyone. Amethyst has no restraint, and seems to be the more dominant side of Sugilite's personality. She's basically all of Garnet's power, but none of her self-control.
On DA, or Fanfiction.net. I will be posting more of my work soon.
Also, I am having my brother help me work on that Greg x Fryman fanfic that I am calling "Love with a side of Fries"
Thank you for this information.
I love you
>didn't realize new episode was available for viewing
>watching it now
>just saw the whole Amethyst/Garnet fusion
Oh my fucking god. How the hell is Sucrose getting away with such blatant shit?
also sug doesn't even look like a gorilla, she looks like a dragon quest troll.
Apparently Coach Steven was shown months ago in South Korea or whichever place it was, so it seems some countries have just been showing that episode early. We'll more than likely know more about when the show will really be coming back by Comic Con.
me personally i have never seen a troll based of the aesthetics of a gorilla
you pulled dragon from Dragon Quest. as in the Game Dragon Quest, as in i was referring to the game Dragon Quest with art by Akira Toriyama who also drew notable characters such as Goku and Vegeta
tl;dr fucking read
you think im a samefag? as you can see in the pic your clearly talking to 2 different people
The US branch of all cartoon channels do it.
Disney XD does it with Ultimate Spider-Man
CN does it with Steven Universe and Ben 10
Nick was going to do it with Korra and I think they've done it with other shows in the past.
>>63774761 here, meant to reply to >>63757956.
It just don't understand why'd you want to hold off on airing your biggest shows. Is it so they have something "new" to show American children when school finally starts?
maybe they're not airing new stuff so when school starts and kids come home they can sit and watch it, instead of going out side and having an active life. that's what i'm going with...it hurts less
Apparently, according to someone who came in saying they were involved in this sort of thing, it's coming back August and is gonna be getting a huge marketing push, with the SU comic being released at the same time. Also I'm guessing it's so the hiatus between seasons isn't fucking enormous, as we're only a few episodes away from the end of season 1.
>decides to look at a /su/ thread for the first time in months
>scrolls to bottom
> sees >>63775601
And Nicks response is "Tell your friends" to those still finding out Korra is back on across twitter. And Production team art is the only way I'd have known Steven Universe was back next month.
There's a faggot or two who argues with himself and shitposts, but yesterday we had a pretty great thread with the new episode. Just wait until the hiatus is over, Tapeworm. JUST A LITTLE LONGER.
after the way dark souls 2 treated the great hammers pre-patch im not intrested in pvp.
pearl garnet fusion will probably will a great hammer
Tumblr loves Steven Universe actually . Have you guys even been to Tumblr ?
You guys are really bad at calling samefags aren't you?
Is it that hard to believe that people still want to see the threads improve? You're almost as bad as Scraps.
the steven universe tag on tumblr is generally filled with good fanart and constructive convos about the show. At least, it was, until SJW started assigning races to fucking minerals.
What people need to understand is that SJWs hate fucking EVERYTHING. They will actively look into for trivial details in everything they watch to interpret some hidden agenda from it just so they can feel offended and have an excuse to get on their soapbox.
If you see someone on tumblr who actually likes a cartoon, they're probably not an SJW.
>started assigning races
But how could you not assign them races? Sure they're not human, but its pretty clear that amethyst and garnet are black and pearl is as white as it gets. Rebecca draws black girls with big puffy lips, which garnet and amethyst both have
Was that little song they did really necessary? Also, what is the true strength they talked about? Using your brain? Restraint?
Also was it really necessary to show Pearl pretty much accepting that she and Steven were about to get killed while crying? Jeez this is way too dramatic in just season 1.
Hey if I was crying like a soccer mom, I would be pissed that Garnet pretty much opened up her legs and let Amethyst jump inside her to 'fuze', a blatantly sexual act that Rebecca is going to soon be sneaking on innocent child viewers nation wide.
Hey bro I like drama, but when the majority or at least a significant amount of all the episodes released thus far have characters crying for some reason at some point, I think they're going a little overboard on the drama. They should take at least a season of nothing getting fucked up and introducing us to Steven and the Gems just doing normal gem mission stuff, and wait until we know them better to introduce the drama.
As it is now it seems like every other episode their lives are about to be ended and they are about to fail their duty as gems. Too much drama.
Well at some point it just feels pretentious as fuck. The characters start singing for no reason and instead of it being an actual song its just a string of words in a sing-song voice with some hipster music or a youchelaylay playing in the background. Like I'm really baffled at why Pearl would just burst into song at that moment.
What's really ruining these reads is the faggot repeating these things:
"Rebecca sugar left the show"
"We hate drawfags, they are autism"
They have a pattern of just repeating the same lies over and over to any Anon dumb enough to listen, and the threads fill up with shut posts. When you see it, report and hide. These posts are breaking the 4chan global rule on low-effort shit posting.
Maybe gems sing when they're getting emotional? Steven does it all the time, and now Pearl sang when she was feeling inadequate. All the gem voice actors are singers, so it could be done.
This pretty much along with the acceptance of Scraps. We gotta get people who contribute positively in these threads with good quality content.
Good to see sane people still lurking about.
I don't know about you guys, but when Steven and Amethyst were getting hyper and screaming when Garnet wanted to fuze, I felt like hitting them both in the face. Maybe I just hate fun, but I think hyper excited kids are the most obnoxious things in the world.
I think what it means is that if a show uses anthropomorphic or non humans in some way (say, a bugs life or a show about a city of robots) but the characters attitude, appearance or manner of speech is suppose to mimic a person, then they're "coded" their ethnicity.
Say, if a Robot has a face and hair style similar to what a black person's face and hair would looks like and they mimic Will Smith or something, they would be coded black.
A poster on here mentioned that the gems' fusions likely work from a common trait shared between them. For example, Pearl and Amethyst share a desire for style. Sugilite is definitely a desire for strength. What do you think the other possible gem combinations could be?
Garnet + Amethyst = increased strength
Amethyst + Pearl = increased execution
Pearl + Garnet = increased focus(?)
Gems + Steven = ???
So wait, Garnet is strong, Pearl is graceful, what is Amethyst's unique trait? I'd say strength but Garnet already occupies that trait. Steven seems to be protection or unity, being able to rally the gems. But I don't know what role Amethyst plays, what unique skill she has.
Her "skill" is being unpredictable. I strongly believe that in Tiger Millionaire, Amethyst would have kicked Garnet's ass because Garnet is a precise fighter and Amy just fucking plays dirty.
I fucking love It's Always Sunny
There's a second shot in the series where he does that same exact thing again. The gang panics for exactly five seconds, then go back to normal after he jumps out because they knew he was going to do that and fixed the car already
The placement of gems on their bodies tells you everything you need to know about their personalities.
>Pearl's head gem represents her committment to using her head and logical thinking to resolve a situation
>Garnet's fist gems represent her sheer, unbridled strength, which topples both the other gems combined
>Amethyst's gem represents the desires of the heart, which means she thinks on instinct, rather than logic
So think of it like the triforce. Pearl is Wisdom, Garnet is power, Amy is courage. Steven is the missing triforce in the middle who eats alot and gets chased by chickens.
SJWs won't be satisfied until the only thing allowed to be depicted in any form of media is a bunch of big black lesbians stomping on the nutsacks of rich white males and crushing them into paste. And everyone will be required to watch it or you'll be convicted of rape.
Have we discussed the blue gem on the doors yet?
All the others are fairly obvious, but I can't remember if it was ever shown in the series prominently.
Garnet's, it matches her red and blue eye. She also has a purple eye but that is her unnatural third eye.
I like to think that Garnet is really Ruby and Sapphire fusion. Or something along those lines.
Something happened that caused them to become permanently fused. Maybe one of them was dying, and garnet has been the result of one of them slowly dying.
This would mean that when 3 fuse they become more and more mentally unstable.
The disaster that killed all of the gems could have been a threat large enough to require ALL of the available gems to combine, and they died after defeating it.
They're setting up some nice limits for their special transformations at least, Opal is super agile, but has no sense of what she's supposed to be doing, Sugilite is super strong but can't control themselves.
Rebecca Sugar announces that the show will end with season 2. She's been given enough head's up to do a two hour movie as the series finale.
Pitch a plot that you think will end the series on a good note, even if all the questions aren't answered.
Holy shit you guys are retarded. He's asking for speculation, not trying to claim it's actually happening. Basically "If you could make a 2-hour finale to SU, how would you do it?"
oh my mistake. ruby and saphire fuse to create Topaz with the desire to become more powerful by force fusing with the other gems and it's up to a little bit older/wiser steven to save his friends
Ching chong, my freak is on, pull my thong down my purple thighs.
>likes to show off
>Amethyst's party attitude with Garnet's tendency to really get into what she does.
>hurr durr brains over brawn is backwards thinking.
I'm sorry, what.
