>Yellow Diamond is Little King John
I definitely think cold-sounding would be better than brutish, Peridot thinks she's amazing and perfect and glorious. I couldn't imagine someone like she's describing with a raspy ass voice
Those round things above her head are planets, could those be the planets yellow diamond controls?
Here is my shit version.
Wait, Should I put spoilers too?
WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK IS THAT
THAT FUCKING NECK
Men aren't allowed to be strong in Sugar's world.
>Greg is an awesome dad but he lives out of a van.
>Mr. Maheswaran is an operator but he can't even drive.
>Steven is the only male with super powers but he almost completely rejects "toxic masculinity"
>Sadie is the only human to stand up to a gem monster
Love the show still, but it is what it is.
Takes deepthroating to a whole new level.
Yeah, still YD looks pretty feminine in the op post.
And I actually want Jasper to side with Steven, not be "evil" for the sake of her looks.
I swear to fuck if Peridot and Lapis, the cute and feminine ones, get better treatment than Jasper.
>everyone ignoring yellow diamond's pearl
nigga imagine the r34 with her and our pearl
I do think redemption will happen eventually. Jasper came in with Lapis and Peridot, so it will be unfair if she gets the shit treatment while Peridot and Lapis get all fine and dandy with Steven. It will imply only the angry "brute" ones will never be redeemed which is retarded.
Besides, YD will probably abandon both Jasper and Peridot anyway, so I don't see Jasper being fine with the abandonment if it happens.
If those designs are real I'm dropping the show.
>Besides, YD will probably abandon both Jasper and Peridot anyway
Everyone is painting YD as some cold hearted bitch for no reason. She is a leader in an apathetic empire, that doesn't mean she leaves her own underlings to die.
I want mustache twirling villains to go and stay go.
Wouldn't be surprised if she does. Jasper and Peridot fucked up their mission, besides I doubt she'll send someone to save them with the Cluster and the CGs out there, and Jasper being trapped in a fusion only god knows where it is.
So yeah, abandonment sounds logical. Besides, she probably has a lot of peridots and jaspers on HW.
its over anon
we have to accept diamond neck
I would go balls deep in those ayys.
Maybe it's out of necessity. She can't save everyone. Say she can save Peridot, but I doubt she'll waste time and resources to find Jasper who's probably somewhere in the abyss.
Don't get me wrong anon, I'd like YD to be caring and smart but I don't think she'll end up like this. We'll have to wait and see what she tells Peridot in that episode.
You are missing the point here, dude. I'm just saying people are making her out to be a mustache twirler for no reason... no reason other than to contrast the then milder evil of Jasper and Peridot for the sake of redemption arcs.
>Peridot wants to come back at the end of episode
>STEVEN NO LONGER BELIEVES IN YOU
>Her left hand
Took me long enough.
How would you seduce a YD, /co/?
I posted in a dead thread
YD abandoning them is not far fetched. I don't think she cares enough about 2 gems that failed their mission and this doesn't make her a twirling retarded villain, if she already has a lot of peridots and jaspers back on HW. I don't see her wasting time to save them, unless the show proves me wrong.
I'm actually hoping to see redemption arcs later on though, no matter if YD abandons them or not.
>Peridot finally gets in contact with Yellow Diamond
>Yellow Diamonds scolds her about her limb enhancers
>Steven interrupts their conversation and tells YD that Peridot was helping them stop the cluster
>Yellow Diamond brands her a traitor and discards her
>Steven is nonchalant about it and tells Peridot, "It's okay, at least you can stay here with us forever."
>The amount of rage and hate Peridot feels for Steven is unmatched by anyone and she throws a big tantrum, and tries to kill Steven and the CGs with her giant robot
>Steven and CGs retreat and Steven feels about the whole thing
Make it happen, Sucrose.
...am I the only one that likes the YD design?
Like...yeah I'm probably the only one.
The design gives off an elder vibe to me, personally. I know gems don't age and maybe there is an exception to diamonds, but it just seems YD is mentally tired/aged from just being a leader, as compared to Rose.
Besides the neck, which I can live with and is probably just one hiccup on an artist, the rest of her seems like what she was depicted so really I'm not disappointed at all. I guess people expected a very "dio" entrance from her because of the hype, which wasn't gonna happen.
She was the one who sent them. She's the leader. They fucked up the mission, what do you think a leader would do in her place? Find them and tell them "It's ok, i still love you"?
>trading 3 incompetent soldiers for time and resources
Sounds pretty efficient to me. It's not like she's doing it out of malice, it just doesn't make sense to waste time and resources to rescue them.
You don't leave someone to die for fucking up a mission unless you are a mustache twirling villain. That kind of lack of caring about life is obviously mustache twirling villain tier and the fact that you don't recognize it is why I'm calling your borderline delusional. You will twist shit as much as needed to hold out hope for redemption.
That said, YD could be a mustache twirling villain, but I expect more from Sugar.
Well see how Yellow Diamond stacks up this week, but my expectations are very low. I can already see the fight being a repeat of season one, where Jasper got defeated in a few minutes flat.
People who hyped this [trash] are probably gonna be disappointed like I am.
A relatable leader of an empire that cares about their own and doesn't care about other species.
Bonus points to Sugar if YD offers the CG amnesty if they abandon the humans to extinction.
You do if the planet is gonna die anyway and YD doesn't care about sending out a spaceship to get a little replacable runt who is also a traitor with the enemy.
I can see her only caring about Jasper at this point.
And it's still fine writing if she leaves them back, especially if they failed their mission and the other one went fucking missing in the bottom of the fucking ocean.
Don't expect YD to "care" about a soldier who couldn't control her boner for Rose and got herself trapped with a crazy witch, or Peridot who did nothing than waste YD's time, and also looking to destroy the cluster than checking on it as she was ordered to.
You just don't like it.
>that cares about their own
Exactly and sometimes the need of the many (the Gem Empire) are more important than the life of one (Peridot).
She is screwed in any case. Either she dies on earth or YD stops caring about her.
I don't see her caring about Jasper. Jasper was the one who messed up the mission anyway. Besides Peridot probably sent her so many signals about her ship crashing and Jasper missing. YD would have done something if she cared. But I doubt she does.
What is filthy half breed that I stopped believing in.
>You don't leave someone to die for fucking up a mission unless you are a mustache twirling villain.
So you're defining "mustache twiling villian" as "an antagonist who isn't nice and caring".
And I guess destroying an entire planet just to create a weapon is cool, but not wasting precious time and resources (that would most likely be better spent somewhere else) is over the line?
So they are hardware, hardware is valuable. Peridot said herself she had read the hundreds of logs about the Cluster. Gems aren't just born with all the knowledge they will ever need and therefore are just about as much an investment as humans.
Steven will stop believing in you soon enough.
Which means that any other Peridot could just do the same job. She is nothing but a minor minion trapped on a dying planet. YD might help her, but we don't know that yet and she might just as well just return to check on Jasper, who has worked for much longer for her.
>So you're defining "mustache twiling villian" as "an antagonist who isn't nice and caring".
No. It's a villain who isn't relatable and just does shit for the sake of being brutal, so the audience cares more about seeing her face rubbed in the dirt than seeing things from her perspective. Like Star Wars villains and shit.
>just does shit for the sake of being brutal
So you think Yellow Diamond is doing it just cause she's a big meany face, and it has nothing to do with it being a waste of time and money?
>It's a villain who isn't relatable and just does shit for the sake of being brutal
And you got all this from one screenshot?
You think it's going to destroy the solar system? I can't imagine a ship would be at risk if there were any indications of the Cluster was about to emerge as Peridot seems to think there is unless emergence would destroy the entire fucking system.
>You will twist shit as much as needed to hold out hope for redemption.
>said the person who expects YD to be caring or whatever else just because finds redemption lame
>trusting sugar's writing but redemption is a nono
Redemption can happen even if YD doesn't abandon them.
By the way, redemption is also good writing and it fits with the theme of the show. Or maybe there won't be redemptions but make us actually understand the HW point of view.
I don't want anyone to be a retarded evil, and I don't think the show has evil gems anyway.
This is why leaks suck. You guys are jumping to conclusions based on two still images. Chill familia. Complain when the episode airs if you wish but honestly all this neck talk is making me start to like it.
So, YD's design is basically Jasper with a long ass neck and a pompadour? I don't think she looks bad but couldn't they have been more creative with her design? Though now that I think about it, that's probably what they were going for
They made three entire other Star Wars movies to try and make Darth Vader more relatable and make his actions more understandable.
They failed horribly but that was at least one of the main goals.
>And you got all this from one screenshot?
No. I never said that's the way she is. I was just pointing out anons are just assuming she is a mustache twirling villain because that's the surest path to Jasper and Peridot redemption. Niggas want it bad, real bad.
Mustache twirling villains don't exist in real life. All the "evil" people in history were either mentally unstable or just painted as evil later on. For example, the Potato Famine was a straight up genocide perpetrated by the English government but we don't see it as such, instead we focus on how evil the communists were for intentionally starving parts of their population. Even fucking Hitler was somewhat relatable. Not sure about Stalin though. He might have been an actual asshat through and through.
>thinking that design isn't awful
I'm sure her personality will make up for it, but goddamn, it's going to be hard to take her seriously.
>Someone will open that image and get spoilered up the ass
>Be a little more considerate next time
The whole sith thing doesn't make sense to me still though. The sith are always evil for little to no reason.
I don't know, maybe the "humans" in that galaxy are just inherently bipolar.
I never read about him, I just know of him and the fact that he lead to a significantly depopulated his country with genociding, to the point of him probably being mentally not all there. But like I said, I don't know much about him.
I personally don't want Jasper to remain "evil" or angry forever at not - Rose. I actually hope to see more of her than the retarded angry brute who is murderous.
Yet people are so quick to defend Peridot and Lapis and believe in their "redemption" but not Jasper. Since you believe there are no "evil twirling villains", then you also believe none of the homeworld gems we know are evil, right?
I actually can see the three of them siding with Steven to defeat the cluster if they're trapped in earth and can't leave.
>Implying sociopaths that believe they are the gods of the worlds they in and everyone else is a pawn in it don't actually exist.
Honestly with the way the show has been though they will probably make her actions justifiable to a degree.
Still thing she runs an oppressive government that perpetuates slavery and dismisses affection as weak.
I think we are drifting away from my point. Anons are assuming she is an unrelatable hag just to make Jasper and Peridot look good. It could go either way at this point IMO. I'm just pointing it out so you fags don't get too delusional on account of your waifu faggotry... no offense intended. I don't judge waifu fags just for being waifu fags.
The stream on your tv anon
Well even excluding episodes after she was captured, we have had more episodes of Peridot while only 2 of Jasper. And while we got to see Peridot get flustered by Steven even in her initial episodes, Jasper remained pretty focused and hard assed about her mission the entire time so we don't really know anything else about her yet. Thats why you don't see many people talking about her.
I know right. This anon seems to confuse necessity with "twirling villain". Leaving 3 expendable "soldiers" doesn't make her evil. She probably doesn't want to, but has no other way. It makes her realistic. She won't waste resources to save Peridot and Jasper (she doesn't even care about Lapis), whom one is working with the CGs and the other is missing.
I hate leaks because they are shitty quality and make discussion leading up to the episode impossible without spoilers, just because fags don't have the patience to wait a few hours for the full experience.
>Thats why you don't see many people talking about her
Actually people do talk about her a lot, mostly theories of course. Since that Matt tweet about Jasper, it gave them fuel to talk more about her.
Jasper still thinks Steven is 100% Rose, with different looks. She will learn that he's not her, eventually, and that she's dead.
Jasper seems less likely to get redemption though because:
A) She doesn't have an air of vulnerability like the other two.
B) Steven is the only way she can be redeemed and she is the only one who goes into a murderous rage when she sees Steven.
That said, yeah, Jaspedemption is under represented here, but then again that's only because Peridemption and Lapidemption are so retardedly over represented. They could all never be redeemed for all I care. Let them all tragically float away into space, unable to die, until they just stop thinking.
>>A) She doesn't have an air of vulnerability like the other two.
And how do you know that? You don't have to be vulnerable to get redemption. That's lame. Lapis, who hates the Crystal gems, and Peridot did worse stuff than Jasper, yet Jasper is the irredeemable one.
And Steven can make her see reason, with the help of others. I don't see Jasper going on murderous rage because she thinks it's Rose with other looks. She will get to know he's not Rose.
I just don't see the writers writing Jasper as this murderous one dimensional retard.
Most stuff floating in space hasn't yet and won't for hundreds of billions of years.
Space is big. That's why fuck all is going to happen when Andromeda and the Milky Way collide.
>And how do you know that?
You are getting presumptions with my presumptions. I'm just stating facts. Peridot and Lapis appear more mentally and physically vulnerable than Jasper. She is the last character I would expect to cry.
>I'm just stating facts
There's nothing that implies Jasper doesn't have an air of vulnerability. And just because she the least to cry doesn't mean she can't cry. She doesn't even have to cry to be "vulnerable".
Lapis is vulnerable and yet she's more fucked up than Jasper and more angry at the crystal gems. The writers have said there's more to Jasper than we see so yeah, I don't expect her to stay a ragetard.
I'm just saying why Lapis and Peridot are more talked about than Jasper when it comes to redemption.
Now let's talk about something of actual importance.
Artists should cut back on making Jasper a futa. Just because she is big and burly doesn't mean she has a dick.
You think if Steven admitted to Peridot that he purposely didn't fix the wrap pad because he wanted her to stay would make her mad?
Yet one of those people who only base on looks. A lot of characters, who were actually worse than Jasper have had redemption and also had a vulnerable side. Jasperdemption is not impossible to happen.
>said AIR of vulnerability
>never said Jasperdemption was impossible
Christ, you dummies are never were defending Jaspedemption before and now you are trying to slit the throat of someone who isn't even arguing against it.
It's because of their looks. Big and angry can't be redeemed and only tiny and cute, "vulnerable" ones can, even if they did worse things than the angry gem.
I agree on your spoiler. I wish we'd see more art of Jasper without the dick.
>Wait over half a year for my waifu to be revealed
I never asked for this.
Of all the words of mice and men, the saddest are, "It might have been."
Hey, you guys remember when the character designs changed from the pilot and an awful lot of people here had a goddamn tantrum? Especially in regards to Pearl?
Just a little something to mull over for everyone whining that YD's design doesn't match their preferred fanart speculation.
yeah Pilot Pearl is garbage, especially next to the goddess that is my waifu, current Pearl
Guys, Raven is theorized to be storyboarding this episode. She's known to exaggerate features a lot when it comes to showing emotions, so Yellow Diamond may not look like this. Storyboard artists draw characters differently, so who knows when YD is handed over by Rebecca or Jeff she looks more attractive.
yeah in the extended intro you fucking moron. Do you even follow the show?
Pilot pearl was shit.
Pilot Amethyst didn't change much.
Pilot Garnet was absolutely fucking GOAT.
Actually the prequels didn't try to make Darth Vader sympathetic and relatable. Anakin was supposed to be a weak monster. He is only redeemed by becoming Darth Vader, the hero of Star Wars.
Not sure if she will ever truly allign with the CGs. But I think the show will make sure to depict her as something else than just a mindless warrior.
If done right she can be an extremely interesting character.
few hours before new episode and this thread is a clusterfuck
All the new material for /sug/ simulators. I can't wait!
What did you expect especially after the flustercluck that was first steven bomb
maybe she'll just live on that isolated island by herself, occasionally visited by Steven, and occasionally called upon to help against a powerful threat at his behest, making her only an ally of Steven, not the gems.
>first steven bomb
we averaged at six 900+ post threads a day
I have a more accurate design of YD in the SDCC clip!
the best thing for her is to get betrayed by Homeworld so she can solo their armies until she's destroyed. Spend a lifetime building up an unstoppable army just to one day fight against it yourself.
I like this. She won't give a fuck for the cgs for all I care, but make her bond with Steven. That's all i want.
i dont know man i live in thirdworldistan, ill just refresh the madridista tumblr until its up
Ian Jones-Quartey posted an explanation about some stuff on Something Awful:
>PSA For anyone who doesn't want to be spoiled: the "extended previews" and sneak peeks going up on YouTube now aren't official promos, they are Video-on-demand samples ripped from Cartoon Network's servers. Keep watching if you want, but if the pattern continues this way you WILL be majorly spoiled on plot events if you keep watching them. Like, entire story climaxes will be pointless to you. Just a heads up.
>Edit: also "World of Steven Universe" is a fan site that masquerades as official... It confuses a lot of people but there's nothing we can do really.
>(If anyone is interested in the technical side: The official previews are small non-spoiling clips of the episode that are usually hand-picked by Rebecca herself. We make them specially for promo and press releases. For the bombs typically they use only the first preview which is why The Answer had an official preview released before. We try really hard to make our promo clips non-spoilery which is why it's such a bummer to see this stuff leaked. It's technically the VOD department's fault but eh it's still a bummer)
Test Pattern posted:
The show starts in the spring or early summer, when Steven is about to turn or has just turned 12.....
>Speaking from having worked on the show I can honestly say that it does NOT happen in real time. As a default the show is set in a sort of "always just off-season" time of year(maybe it's just before or after summer). Other seasons are shown on special occasions when there's a story reason. But I can't stress this enough: it's a cartoon. There is no passage of time that matches up to reality. Steven was never 12 onscreen. This is the kind of thinking that would make Bart Simpson in his 30s.
But Jasper is a muh honourable warrior gem who was just following orders. She hasn't shown much animosity on her own towards the gems. Also Lapis is a rapist now and Peridot a traitor
That was from /sug/ way back when
>Jasper still thinks Steven is 100% Rose, with different looks.
This is an important point. A lot of her comrades probably got crushed fighting against Rose
Personally I think Jasper is the most interesting character in SU atm. I really want to see her experience some emotional struggle between loyalties or some shit
He had one more small post:
So there's no accurate time-counting but is there a general idea of 'he's getting older' over the seasons like Adventure Time has with Finn? Or is this more of the Simpsons-eque perpetual age.
>The episode "Steven's Birthday" may have some clues!
World Of Steven Universe doesnt even "masquerade" as official, its a spanish speaking blog that uploads the episodes in english and in english with spanish subtitles and tries to keep up with SU news, literally a normal fanblog
Ian is such a cunt is there anything on that fuckin anouncement that is half true
http://cinemaquestria.com/stream/ is alright if you ignore the
That remindes me of that one fanfiction, where Dewey made Pearl smoke crack. She then died by getting slowly getting turned into crack. Then Dewey smoked her. Then Garnet killed him... Yeah
But sadly I can't find it anywhere anymore
Plus, Rose is dead anyway so she won't be there for Jasper to release her anger at her.
She also probably never had to question shit since being on HW you have to do what you're made for. The "complicated" comment made me think she'll end up struggling at some point.
>Steven bubbles himself and sings a song about friendship while the Jaspers pummel the bubble
>eventually, the touching lyrics combined with their war memories get to them
>they'll never be able to smell things, either
>Steven hugs them all and cheers them with the pork chop line
>they end up learning rocknroll from Greg and form an amazing glam heavy band
also "World of Steven Universe" is a fan site that masquerades as official... It confuses a lot of people but there's nothing we can do really.
GOD DAMNIT IAN YOU FUCKING NIGGER FAGGOT THAT PAGE CLEARLY SAYS THAT IS FANMADE AND ITS THE ONLY ONE THAT SUBTITLES THE EPISODE
thats too bad anon i would love to have that
>you will never have a Harem of Jaspers waiting on you hand and foot
Sapphire is best CHAM! member
I'd like to get Pearl a pearl necklace if you know what I mean. Give her them pearly whites, if I can say so myself. Little sluts need to be put in their place from alpha men such as myself.
>Ian is such a cunt
man, what happened
he used to be so based, now he's saying shit like this
he`s probably upset because his shit of a show is becoming shittier and he can`t stop it.
And i don`t mean SU.
Can someone elaborate about all of Ian's posts for me? I loved him in NOCKforce and he seems like a chill dude.
I get that he called World of Steven Universe a site pretending to be official even though it isn't but what's this stuff about Steven being 12?
I'm pretty sure Jim would be more than willing but I think Ian finds himself to either be above doing more NOCKforce or see it as a waste of time since he animates it entirely himself.
Or they could just do a podcast without animation, that would be fine. Still, I don't see Ian going for it.
It's moustache twirling because Peridot is smart enough to potentially disable the Cluster with the assistance of the Crystal Gems, so the smart thing to do is to avoid making Peridot disgruntled.
Well considering that the only LPT thing is the pilot from a couple years ago it's not really on anybody's minds. Plus he's still close friends with the whole crew so I'm sure he still knows a whole lot even if he doesn't work on it anymore.
>HES SUCH A FUCKING CUNT I HATE HIM FUCK BLACK PEOPLE
hes not even being a dick you guys are over reacting?
how is a man suppose to feel about a website that steals stuff that the SU team worked so hard on?
you guys are being a bunch of entitled tumblr cunts desu senpai
and yes there is only two genders
Ian said that Steven was never 12 onscreen, however, two Beachapaloozas (an annual event) have passed in the show
Steven is 12 > Steven and the Stevens happens > Steven turns 13 offscreen > Sadie's Song happens > Steven turns 14 in The Answer
>FUCK BLACK PEOPLE
what? Ian is a skinny white dude
