Is this show overrated?
>>
>>64377755
This artstyle is repulsive
>>
nothing fucking happens in this motherfucking shittastic crapfest
>>
>>64377755
I've seen so many mixed messages on /co/ about it. I don't think a show can be overrated when no one hypes the shit out of it.

But I really like it
>>
>>64377755
No, if anything it's underrated

>comfy cute show with some genuine moments

At least there's 100 episodes still coming

It's a good cartoony show with some nice lore and unique designs, but /co/ has a massive, massive, massive hateboner for it for literally no reason.

It's underrated.
>>
the gems are boring as shit
>>
>>64377983
the hateboner stems from /v/ anons who try to make every cartoon, comic, whatever made by a female into some sort of tumbr-hate festival.

it started off as ironic trolling but now its attracted actual idiots who believe this who have never actually watched the show. you can tell exactly who they are because they can't say anything beyond a series of buzzwords or funny leddit-tier swearword salads.

My issue with SU is that it desperately wants to be a classic magical girl show, but holds itself back with no major antagonists and most of the conflict being slice of life.
If the show was just about the Gems fighting evil, without Steven, it would be much better.
I have a feeling that that's exactly what Sugar wanted too, but the execs wouldn't greenlight the show without a male lead.

>without steven it would be much better
no it wouldn't he's the only who is not completely useless
>>
>>64378384
Wow really? What brought that on?
>>
>>64378557
Steven was a part of it from the show's conception, he's based off of Sugar's brother. I think Steven holds them together, and the show would be kind of boring without him. Watching the gems be completely competent fighting monsters without conflict in my opinion isn't as exciting without some peril. I wonder how the show would be with Rose instead.

The threads were nothing but shitposting, they hadn't seen their comic update in a year or so and yet they were still having constant threads.

Basically this. Its just there with no real arc since its episodic. Its building up to absolutely fuck-all when the story is centered around a fatkid with "potential".

The basic plot structure is the same, but they go about it a bit differently after the first episode and mix things up often.

I hope you don't get too caught up in that idea, seeing as it's pure speculation. Everything in the show suggests that the Gems are acting more like a clean-up crew. They're not just fighting monsters who happen to attack Beach City, they're going to long abandoned temples and structures that happen to be dangerous.

When has it ever been shown that the gems hate Stevens dad? And the reason they don't let him live with him is because,
1. He lives in a van
2. He will interfere with Stevens Powers
>>
>>64381256
Only Pearl really hates Greg as far as we've been shown.
>>
>>64381298
How?
>>
>>64381256
They don't hate him, they just don't see much in him. Like the time they didn't even think he had the light cannon and Amethyst just straight-up called him a mess. Anyone who says they hate him probably have a headcannon that they blame him for Rose's death.
>>
>>64381298
No she doesn't.
>>
>>64381311
Because Amethyst and Garnet haven't shown any contempt towards him at all.
>>
>>64381351
Amethyst calls him a mess.
>>
>>64381351
They both have.
>>
>>64381123
If he really wanted his son with him he wouldn't have let them take him. They were his mother's friends, but he's Steven's dad and that counts for a lot more, gem power or not. We haven't seen the transition from Steven living at home to living with the gems yet though. It seems like something that should be addressed. Like, did they just show up one day and take him away? Or did they take him at birth and Greg was ok with it?
>>
>>64381372
When has pearl called him a mess?
>>
>>64381371
And Garnet agrees with her.
>>
>>64381387
They said their going to show a episode about roses death.
>>
>>64381387
I think the gems and humans are more segregated in the world than what you'd imagine. Steven's dad probably accepted that eventually he'll have to become one of the gems and thought it was for the better.
>>
>>64381392
Amethyst called her a mess. Pearl said that she can't imagine that Rose would entrust "someone like" Greg with the light cannon
>>
>>64381387
They would've sooner taken Steven, but Greg can't raise a gem.
>>
>>64377755
Yes. /co/ wouldn't shut up about it when it first started, so I checked it out. It's not as good as everyone said it is.

That doesn't make it shit, though. It's got a great subtelty to its worldbuilding and manages to pull off neat, expansive story's in a fairy limited time frame. It's just not the bestest and greatest cartoon ever of all times and anon like a lot of people were saying.

>>64381543
Pearl is a bitch, Amethyst and Garnet fall into different categories.
>>
The show has no laugh out loud moments at all, the fight scenes aren't very interesting, but it looks real nice and cosy.

It would probably benefit from either having a story arc or having 22 minute episodes, but because it's started off with low ratings from the off I don't think it'll ever get the latter. The fact that it's so formulated also makes it predictable, which can work in an outright humor show like P&F or RS, but with something that takes itself serious like this it doesn't work.

I have a feeling that Rebecca had her own idea for a show and Cartoon Network just turned it into Adventure Time 2 to try and guarantee success. What they don't realise is that Adventure Time was successful because it was new and different.

I'd probably give it a 5 or 6 out of ten, because it's just not interesting enough to warrant me giving it any more. I wouldn't turn the tv off if it came on, but I'd definitely check the other channels to see if something more interesting was on.
>>
>>64381592
Its the first fucking season. Why the hell are you guys expecting so much?
>>
>>64381592

that's because the show isn't a comedy exactly

>>64381592
Every time someone compares SU to AT I take a minute to roll my eyes all the way around the inside of my skull.

The only similarities there are what you find in Sugar's influence with the ukelele playing and down-to-earth character development and junk. All the stuff that disappeared from AT the moment she left.
>>
>>64381640
>Every time someone compares SU to AT I take a minute to roll my eyes all the way around the inside of my skull.
Pretty much this. I mean not even the colors are the same. SU's colors are paler and more relaxed while AT is more colorful. You can't even squint your fucking eyes and say they're the same.
>>
>>64381592
How the hell is SU the second AT?The shows aren't even alike and have totally different plots.
>>
>>64381627
First Seasons of Shows are more often than not one of the best. AT, RS, Spongebob, Dexter etc. Creators are often told to put in there best ideas first so as to hook the viewer from the off. Also as a series gets more seasons it becomes less creator-driven, which means that from season 2 onwords Rebecca Sugar will have less and less involvement in the show. She's gotta stamp her style on is ASAP otherwise it will have no hook.
>>64381633
The thing is, I can't even tell what genre it's trying to be, and even if it isn't a comedy then it doesn't mean that the jokes are allowed to fall flat. That's just lazy and inexperienced writing.
>>64381640
Why? It's on the same channel as AT and RS, Rebecca used to work on AT, it's a rival show to AT and RS, and some of the episodes are so AT like that if Steven dressed up as a yellow dog I would probably think it was AT
>>
>>64381676
Are you seriously saying that two shows cannot be similar because of the fucking colours that they use? Man, this is like speaking to a bunch of two year olds.

>>64380570
They're magic, of course they're full of themselves. They're doing the job they're supposed to do. They don't really care about the citizens liking them, as long as they're safe.

That shows contrast with Steven. He's caring about the people of Beach City and also half human, so part of the plot involves him trying to get the gems to care at least a little about the public's opinion of them.

It's a companion show, if anything. They're all Cartoon Network, there's no competing here. How does that even make sense? What would they compete over? Time slots?

>The show has no laugh out loud moments at all
I disagree. Just last episode I laughed at 6 jokes and that was a pretty middle of the road episode. Tiger Millionaire I'd say is the flat out funniest episode.

Humor isn't it's only focus but it tells jokes worth telling. It does character drama leagues better than other shows right now where the only 2 stories anyone seems to be able to tell is who wants to bone who and the 2 "bros" fight and then make up at the end of the episode.

Atmosphere is what really sells the show though. Very traditional animation combined with a nice to look at painted world look, plus a unique soundtrack for every episode.
>>

Unlike some other shows I can name.

Like you mentioned, this isn't to say that the show can't be funny; to the contrary. But I REALLY appreciate how cheap gag humor isn't Steven Universe's focus.

>>64397497
they probably don't considering the gems are effectively immortal. Maybe there's some kind of spiritual breeding or some shit
>>
I couldn't get over the ugliness of the character designs, and that prevented me from trying hard to get into it. What I watched was alright, though. Yes I'm shallow.

It's not overrated since there isn't an enormous fanbase here. It's rated just about correctly.
>>
>>64397497
I don't think Gems do reproduce, naturally anyway. They're essentially immortal and can regenerate from grievous bodily harm given enough time. I've been thinking that since the gems are clearly aliens that each one is a manifestation of some sort of planet protector spirit and only move on once their world no longer needs them or something. Rose had Steven as a way of getting the other Gems to better bond with humanity since they showed little concern for the people of earth outside of their gem duties.

But doesn't it seem like Rose might have had a plan? Out of all the Gems they hint that she interacted with people and she had her own little base away from the temple. She built multiple light cannons and the other Gems never knew how to even use the one they knew about. It looks like Greg was at fault but that's only because Rose couldn't explain that the others needed to learn to care about humanity.
>>
>>64401667
Well he wasn't really "At fault" but he says Rose gave up her own life to create Steven. I just figure if there's any reason for the Gems to resent Greg, it's because he helped her do that.

>>64401851
cowboy bebop when?
>>
>>64401803
Yeah, but I don't think she told him either and if anything I think that made him hate himself even more than the Gems might dislike him. Think about it, Rose was the best thing in his life and the loss of her made a man already struggling pretty much shut down. He keeps the picture he has of her in storage where he doesn't have to look at it and be filled with guilt constantly. He can only keep it together for Steven because he doesn't have to deal with the stress of raising him full time. He certainly tries, if what Steven reveals about him in So Many Birthdays is any indication, but in the end I think he punishes himself by remaining a sort of dead beat.
>>

Dude, whatever you're smoking, you might want to quit.

Anime has been lewd shit and best girls for years now, there are very few classic action animus and one of them is close to ending.

to some extent, she sees Rose in him...Steven does have her gem.

I cant remember just how high all the gems think of Rose, but it's possible that Pearl really REALLY looked up to her from them all for whatever reason and Steven's well being might be Rose's final will. Rose gave up her physical form so Steven could be born after all.

And Steven's birth might be Rose's way to make Greg happy and in some twisted way Rose's 'dead' is Greg's fault, so that could be the reason why the gems think he's a mess and shit but then again they do love Steven and HOLY SHIT.
