i remember when i first saw the previews for this show i said to myself;
WOW. that main character looks horrible. this show will suck.
cut to today and this is honestly one of my favorite cartoons to come out in the last decade. its doing an excellent job with its pacing.
I hope we get some hardcore slice of life stuff once the whole gem cluster / redemption stuff is over.
Peridot working at big donut
Jasper bullying people at the gym
Lapis teaching swimming
Yellow diamond running for president
It'd be great
Rebecca upfront about Steven being a little jew boy with his master race alien family.
Not like Superman pretending to be white (human) after surviving his master race's shoah.
It's probably the honesty and brazen degenerate homosexual pandering that you appreciate as a liberal.
Remember when /co/ disliked their updated designs? I think how they were revealed didn't help.
The character interactions and the OST genuinely keep me coming back... I don't know what to make of it, but it is what it is.
The plot itself isn't ground-breaking, but it's at that stage where I at least want to see what happens.
Funny because a lot of the SU fags on 4chan cry about them and tell people to skip them
Are aliens homosexual if they only have a single sex?
They don't got much of choice. They're either gay or alone.
Unless you're Rose. Bitch so hetero, she betrayed her species and sacrificed her life for some quality dick. God damn.
I like them both.
S2 has lot more drive in the plot and we just run on well-established characters, so nothing really comes out of left field because we can tell what is and is not typical for them.
I like this development, really. It's about how everything moves, everything changes and nothing lasts forever.
We saw the life of an innocent child, but this Steven just doesn't exist anymore.
He is still Steven, but he will never be without the knowledge of his heritage again.
He will never be the kid the adults have to worry about again.
Now he must learn to be the shield to protect everyone.
And slow as it may be, this shift is coming.
He leads more and more, learns about his Gems and about the history of the rebellion.
His day to defend the earth is coming up.
Not sure how much of that we are going to get.
They have a lot of ground to cover in the near future before that is possible.
>It's probably the honesty and brazen degenerate homosexual pandering that you appreciate as a liberal.
It's almost like you truly understand me Anon.
But season 1 had Jailbreak, so
>tfw Blue Pearl only had 10 seconds of screen time but is still best gem
I would pay good money for an episode about Peridot and Jasper working the night shift at Big Donut.
>I question the need for nutrition dispensers when the entire town is asleep.
>If you have a better way to earn money for rent, be my guest.
God damn it. SUG has spoiled me. I am now used to threads which are way faster then anything else here on /co/ or most boards for that matter
>Pearl's expression of sheer salty rage at Amy
>"FUCK YOU SQUAT PURPLE WHORE HE IS MINE"
The post quality has improved, though.
They should do this to all the generals!
How do you guys think they're going to deal with the cluster? It's not like they could bubble a massive clump of dead gems into the temple.
Peridot makes a hydrogen bomb in one of the upcoming barn episodes
>uhh, peridot, are you gonna be ok?
>*TRAITOROUS CLOD-BZRRRRRR-TRAITOROUS CLOD*
Fuck I I died at this part, my first impression of this show was that it was retarded, but a friend of mine convinced me to marathon it with him and I laughed a lot.
Hm. I don't know.
It is a weapon system, as far as Peri andYD described it, though.
>destroying earth for a geo-weapon (as in to have one, not to have used one)
So it does not destroy earth like a bomb and then has served its purpose. It would probably become a sort of Deathstar platform or something like that.
So I'm not sure it works like those small shard clusters, but is a kind of superorganism, like a living ship. Not quite cognisant, but absolutely of a higher functionality than those zombified shards.
They will likely just go down there and disable the mechanism that feeds it, or try and shatter it in some way.
We really don't know much about how Clusters work in detail, though.
i feel like SU has the undertale effect on me
at first i thought undertale was just tumblr trash, all the characters seemed dumb and annoying out of context. But then I played it and I think they're hilarious and its one of my faves. I just hadn't given it a chance
will SU be the same way?
i love her
i want her to take me away to somewhere peaceful and flowing with the purest waters
I really wasn't too keen on her being a little midget but she's really grown on me
and is now my favorite character
I hate them because I know them. The show tries to act like they're all maturing while making them fall back on their own shit over and over while trying to make the audience feel sympathy for them week after week.
Well we're not here for anime, we're here for Steven.
The characters are clearly different later than earlier in the series. Amethyst in Friend Ship isn't the same as before, Pearl in Log Date isn't the same as Pearl in Giant Woman, Garnet is tons more exposed in The Answer, Peridot and Steven are blatantly different from their introductions.
I really don't know where you got that idea from, it feels like you're describing the problems of a completely different series.
I think what he discribes is that they encounter problems related to their hangups more than once.
As in, they don't have the artificial "fixing your problem" thing going you encounter a lot in cartoons where they have a problem come up, find a solution and then it's never talked about again.
Naturally that is not what happens in SU where their problems are related to their identity and the inherent insecurities they have dragged around for 6k years.
So of course you can't fix Pearl's hopeless attachment to Rose, you can't fix Amethyst's awareness of her own inadequacy and you can't fix Garnet's core beliefs about fusion.
Well they said it is made of a million shards, right?
The shards aren't terribly large, so while the body it creates would be larger than the earth, the cluster could be puny compared to that kind of scale.
But its functionality would be depending on how well it can be controlled and what kind of body it produces.
I mean, will it be an explosion of limbs? A rapidly expanding mass that quickly flickers out of existence so you can use it again?
A giant war machine that just tears earth apart as an afterthought?
I feel the exact same way OP I saw the previews I visited the threads and I also decided it would suck, and now with the release of the newest episode I find myself looking back and thinking
My god I was right this show is overhyped garbage plus I have internet a world of good shows await me!
The cluster itself would likely be very small, but the result would be gigantic. It would be like an expanding bath toy that retains its density. Gems could move it easily and fuck everything with an earth-sized mass
At first, I didn't really like the show, but I noticed that the world building had a lot of potential.
I kept watching and the potential was realized.
I just binged all of it this month and now I'm just waiting for the next episode to come out.
How long must I wait?
>I don't care about potential and resources. I want my cluster, and I want that planet to die.
Petty revenge on a planet she couldn't take back the first time.
It's a pretty great show. Even ignoring episodic crying and shitty schedules, it's my new favorite show. Amethyst starts out as a lazy slob and comedic relief, but is now a sad sack of emotions and unwanted birth, combined with being the only Crystal Gem that's actually a crystal gem. Pearl seems like a neat and orderly Mom but as we see, she's a neurotic and PTSD ridden mess of gay salt. Garnet was first shown to be stoic and unbreakable but is actually two minds in one body that have to balance everything out, and is the de facto leader because Pearl is broken. Steven was at first a fat fuck who eats junk and can't do shit, but now he can summon his weapon at will, is eating better, and is constantly reminded he is neither human nor Gem, he is alone. Honestly its the only currently airing show that doesn't keep to a status quo, unlike the Adventures of Betacai and Finn the Cucking. The characters change and I think it has to do with how they draw episodes a year in advance. I wouldn't be surprised if the way Sugar does things is she writes the ending first, then builds up to the end with her arcs.
All we need is weekly episodes man.
He's salty because Rose and her handful of defective Gems repelled wave after wave of elite soldiers with nothing but a bunch of scraps.
The first time I saw this show I thought it was some girly shit for faggots, so everytime it came on CN I changed the channel and even my little brother changed the channel. I didnt really hate it though I thought it was faggy until I watched some episodes that were showing on CN each week during the early days of SU. I stopped watching for a while then saw the promo for the Lapis two parter on CN and went HOLY SHIT THIS SHOW IS AWESOME, it was at that pont where I decided to watch the series for good.
Now its 2016 I fucking love this show, I get unimaginable pleasure at the mere idea of a new episode.
Except you don't know that the cluster is a mindless eldritch abomination. And asking why would YD want a world-destroying superweapon is like asking why the Empire would want the Death Star, or why the First Order would want Starkiller Base.
>It's probably the honesty and brazen degenerate homosexual pandering that you appreciate as a liberal.
Well, yeah Being a degenerate rules. Why is that a bad word to you, are you boring?
What does it meeeeeeeeeean?
More like why would they want a Death Star that can move and act of its own voalition.
I started re-watching the series a week or so ago and seriously just finished Rose's Room. The adorable terror of Frybo and Cat Fingers sold me when I first started watching... I'm looking forward to rewatching Mirror Gem and Ocean Gem. It seems like Chille Tid is the only S2 episode with a similar atmosphere, though, which is okaayyyy I suppose.
Just download it, pretty much everything relate to SU is available through the MEGA
Wasn't Pearl training both of them now anyway?
Again, you don't know that. We have no idea what the cluser is exactly. For all you know, the cluser's been encoded with absolute loyalty to the Diamonds, and will be completely obedient, if it's sentient, from the moment it's complete.
>Avatar/Korra were more shounen anime with cleaner animation
>Steven Universe is moe magical girl anime with more deformation
Fuck, that makes too much sense.
What would original Teen Titans be then?
Maybe it could. Maybe she's overconfident, and arrogant enough to believe she can control it if it has a mind and will of its own. We know nothing about it. It's still a superweapon, so of course the leader of a galactic empire would want it.
So how do you think they'll actually stop the cluster? for some reason I don't think they'll end up shattering it outright.
Somehow I see Steven or someone managing to fuse with it right before it finishes, giving it a smaller form for a while or just convincing it to form its body fully when it's off Earth.
They need to send my nigga Greg to the homeworld to fuck and impregnate every gem on that side of the universe.
Imagine a whole world... of Stevens!
I just realized what makes SU tick
It's an ongoing story with little room to skip episodes as compared to the other CN shows with are self contained comedies with random progression (Mordecai's dating life, Penny's new form, AT in general)
Can you imagine if Sardonyx arc wasn't made as a Bomb?
Eh? What's their argument? I just caught up and I like those eps.
My only complaint is that I'm not fond of the couple of them that have literally zero supernatural elements. The ones that look like they came from a completely normal cartoon about a town, like that one where the donut girl has to- oh my gosh- sing at a concert! I like my slice of life with at least a little weird shit.
That was the main point. Like a few people said, Season 1 was just world building. It was just done to introduce characters and areas for the second season. So yeah, it does feel like a completely different show in Season 2 but I enjoy it and I like this way of storytelling
To be honest, for me, it's new designs>>>old designs. The pilot REALLY didn't get me excited for the show that I actually didn't get interested in the show until the season 1 finale and didn't start full on watching it until the 2nd StevenBomb. I watched episodes when they were on but I never paid attention to what episode it was or when a new episode came on, I just went 'SU is on? Eh, I'll watch it for a bit' mainly because the pilot, to me at least, was very ugly.
I disagree i feel like the characters are just as lively as ever, if not more so.
I think that's what draws me more to SU than the other SU shows. While we complain about 'Oh this episode is a filler episode!', it really isn't. An episode that may seem like filler will probably have a hint to an upcoming revelation. I think Sadie's Song is a big example of this with the song. That's gonna come into play probably at the season 2 finale.
>Season 1 was still trying to be Adventure time,
No? Unless you mean how Rebecca Sugar literally boarded some of the best episodes of Adventure Time, then yeah, it's just like those episodes of Adventure Time. But from the very beginning, this show has rejected the episodic, "random" nature that Adventure Time usually maintains.
>peridot in donut shop
>not forming a band with Steven
what a cuck
Kat Morris boarded the first episode, and I don't think she works as a storyboarder anymore. That's why Connie's design "changed," because only Kat drew her like that. I guess they tried it in An Indirect Kiss and abandoned it for a cuter, but strikingly less realistic Connie.
>that episode where Steven wasn't listed on Jasper's flight plan
it's for the best that she's gone, the way she drew Onion was fucking weird
T R U S T M E
The first 6 episodes (exactly 6 of them) were absolute shit. I watched the first 6 and then put it off for 4 months until /co/ convinced me to give it another shot.
It starts picking up when Connie is introduced in Bubble Buddies. It gets SO much better.
The pacing is one of the worst flaws of SU. Pair that with CN's horrible scheduling management and you've got the same case with GF.
>Lapis teaching swimming
Anon, you have to admit how awful looking the early episodes were, especially Laser Light Cannon.
Things really don't need to be skipped, but those early episodes were very generic and dragged on.
Tiger Millionaire was really the first one where they started to figure shit out. Maybe a bit of Cat Fingers and Frybo, but those were also just kinda average.
It's a good episode but it's got some pretty shit art in it.
You know what is the problem with the latest slice of life episodes that people complain about? They barely involve gems or even fucking magic stuff
I'm not saying that it necesarilly needs this to have good episodes, but it's one of the best things of the show that should be much more exploited
>Not even trying to edit out the obvious porn in the background
Yeah, but compare to Sadie's Song to Nightmare Hospital and you see how utterly meh Sadie's Song is
Even Steven's birthday was more interesting
Yeah, the storres is okay, if not a little generic, and present a entertaining break, but they are just too self-contained as opposed to the main story which is now entirely in arcs
The one thing I miss from Season 1 is the relaxed, melancholy atmosphere which gave the earliest episodes their unique tone, and initially piqued my interest in the show. Because the arc of S1 was driven by Steven's growing awareness and maturity regarding the gems, and his existence in general, the stories we saw were not colored by the narrative burden they now carry. Small interactions between characters and odd, magical events could happen without being seen as part of some larger epic. It makes perfect sense, of course, that we as viewers can't go back to the days of innocence, just as Steven can't go back to his carefree life of wandering Beach City while the gems handle the responsibilities of their past. However, despite marking a trajectory towards more complex and nuanced and exciting things, it feels like a loss regardless. The main theme is the clearest example of this shift--for all of Season 2's energy, there's something to be said for the quieter, more personal tone of the original.
CN was advertising the show with that "if every pork chop were perfect..." scene. The clip looked stupid and I avoided it, expecting it to get canceled.
One day I couldn't find the remote so I just said fuck it and tried it out because it was on. I heard the theme song and the show captured my soul. It was so nice sounding it gave me goosebumps. It's my favorite cartoon currently airing.
I didn't expect The Test to be such a damn good episode. But hearing Amethyst saying "We're bad at this" and the Gems ALL admitting that they're trying their best, but they don't know what they're doing when raising Steven...damn, it made all three of them better characters instantly.
I imagine it's even more sad watching that scene if you're a parent.
I remember when I first saw the previews for this show I wanted Steven to pluck out his excoriated skin of desolation and cover his muscles with metempsychotic mustard upon which the mired hatreds of ten thousand sins have accumulated due to mankind's unpredictable stupidity.
Now I desire his flesh to be boiled in desolation poop and his brains scalded by the waters of time.
1. learn to use the enter key
2. I think we'll probably be returning to that quieter tone for a while once the Cluster is dealt with.
Peridot needs to become acclimated to her new everyday life, Lapis may or may not be part of that, and there should be a time between them stopping the Cluster and YD realizing she didn't get a giant space monster.
The whole underlying message of the show is that you can get through to almost anyone through patience, understanding, friendship, and kindness.
... finding someone who Steven CAN'T redeem is something you've got to save for a major antagonist like Yellow Diamond.
YD needs to deliver a major blow to the CGs... something like wiping Beach City off the map or shattering one of the redeemed gems... something so completely unforgivable that even the ever-kind, ever-patient, ever-forgiving Steven Universe would look up to his surviving friends and family and say
"I hate her."
The change in tone as the series progresses isn't all too bad. That just means you can treasure the comfy episodes of S1 that much more, knowing things will probably never be the same for Steven.
I expect S3 to include the HW gems in its opening, so at least we can look forward to some comfy redemptions, yeah?
The cluster is ready to unleash itself and destroy the Earth. At just the right time Steven makes contact with it and ends up having a 1-on-1 conversation with it, delaying its final destruction and getting into its mind. The whole thing becomes a very "scorpion and the frog" scenario where the cluster is just carrying out its natural (even if destructive) duty and Steven is the naturally benevolent force putting itself at risk humoring its situation.
Destruction breeds creation regardless of the hardship it brings. No one is perfect and no one is 100% good or evil. Even chaotic forces like the cluster have their place in the grand scheme of things. This is the very philosophy upon which this show is built and I'd like to see it tackle this "if every porkchop were perfect" mentality more and more.
I believe there is a greater threat at hand that the Crystals, Homeworld, Earth and who knows how many others are going to have to come together to overcome.
Even so, it'd be fairly cheap. At this point we can probably grasp the formula from now on:
>new gem arrives
>is a villain for a while
>Steven uses the fabled Talk no Jutsu >eventually there's a new Crystal Gem
Actually she still works on the show, just not as a boarder: She's the show's Storyboard Supervisor, she's one of the two Supervising Directors (specifically for Raven & Paul and Florido & Zuke episodes) since mid-season 2, and she's one of the show's story writers (along with Rebecca, Ian before he left, Matt Burnett, and Matt's ska-loving partner in crime Ben Levin)
Also while my first instinct was to assume that kat boarded the onion scene, I think Aleth Romanillos did that scene: Compare Steven in that scene to steven in the scenes in arcade mania where they're at the cave at the start and when they're talking the giant foot, and Contrast to the scenes where steven asks for the bits in both LLC and Cat Fingers
See, I think Lapis is going to subvert this.
She's already so far gone off the deep end that it's going to be hard to give her some form of emotional redemption from the homeworld gems.
IMHO, I think she's gonna die, and she's going to serve as a lesson for Steven that he can't save everybody.
I think if they add new Crystal Gems, they're gonna cap it with Peridot, Lapis, and Jasper. It would be character overload if they added even more characters. The Homeworld Gems work as a foil and companion group to the original three, with each of them potential filling a role of one of the original three.
Peridot & Amethyst are the short, crude, and unintentionally abrasive ones.
Lapis & Pearl are the lithe, gentle caretakers with dark sides and emotional issues.
Jasper & Garnet are the tall, stern warriors types who eventually show a more affectionate side to Steven.

>ian says gems cant make babies
>even though rose had shapeshift a pussy and eggs and a womb and a bunch of other shit just to make steven
>the reverse is impossible by that standard even though a dick and balls would be much easier to make
no, it's clearly rick and morty. Marty was a dick and has questionable ethics and morals at least when it comes to women and wasting time daydreaming or whatever it was he was chastising Greg for but I wouldn't call it flat out nihilism
So Gems aren't technically living aren't they? Don't living beings need to be able to procreate? They're sentient, but not "alive" in the traditional sense.
Or am I being retarded and am I missing something?
Well, I imagine the problem is that you'd just be combining gem energy and gem energy.
It wouldn't make for a new gem at all in that case when the "mother" tried to give birth.
Steven is a combination of gem energy and growing organic mass. So it is different for him.
Actually, taking the energy from one gem and giving it to another is kinda what I'm thinking "harvesting" might be.
If that's the case, the implications of gem rape are even more interesting.
>gems are gender neutral
>ian keeps referring all gems as she
Neutral my ass.
Well given what little we know of gem biology and magic and shit.
One gem could grow an injector (read: penis) and magic/energize the liquid inside of injectors.
They would then stick their injector into the other Gem's kindergarten (read: vagina), which also contains the necessary magic/energy for gems to grow.
The dual energies would grow, gestate over a set time, then a new gem would form, probably a fusion of the two gems. So is Booby and Laughire did this it would pop out a baby Garnet.
But hey, that would require Gems to have emotions and be capable of love, and only defective gems have feelings. These Gems are gathered up, gassed, and then harvested to make ships and weapons.
Pretty much >>79174087

Steven: Garnet! How did Jasper beat you if you have future vision? Was getting captured part of your plan?
Garnet: Of course!
Steven: Hurray! We got ourselves caught! What's the next step of your master plan?
Garnet: Crashing this ship... with all survivors!
I'm late but yea, I admit that the art was shit in that episode, but aside from that it's still pretty great and remains one of my favorites ever since, steven and greg's interaction with eachother really make the episode for me
Has the show ever referred to the gems as sexless? Like sure some of them may not have cleavage and shit but I don't think anyone just outright told steven "hey we don't have vaginas btw"
Honestly, the pacing is the absolute WORST part.
It doesn't need to go full anime, but in a way it has.
Garnet has a shitload of character development for a person who's only fault is keeping a grunge that was equally shitty on Pearl for being a pity party.
In a way, it feels like Garnet has no duality at all, but she's literally three different characters at the same time. Sensitive about fusion when she wants, but will take it at any time with no sense of repercussions at any moment when she wants. Dismissive, fueled by instinct, and apathetic one day, but freaking Late Show Arnold Shortman in how sage-like her wisdom is.
While Amethyst is just there at this point. She was a source of intentional naivety clashing with the experiences and yearnings she's gained, but Peridot overwrites her role.
Now she does all the stuff Steven would do as an expert of the Season 1 Crystal Gems, not the Season 2 ones.
Pearl has a straight up incomplete arc where the entirety of the FriendShip bomb could be completely ignored.
The agendered stuff has only been confirmed via the crew on social media.
Nothing IN the show has ever brought it up or mentioned it. Mainly because it doesn't really need to be brought up.
It's not like it'll make the storytelling any better or worse.
I don't know about english but in spanish theere are objects that are refered as femenine, even when they are not, for example: La silla es muy incomoda.
The Adjective (Incomoda) and the Pronoun (La) are in femenine, so for me is not strange to call the Gems as She.
I agree completely. Some mini arcs get completely forgotten.
They never offer an explanation as to why Amy was put into an antagonistic role towards Pearl the first half of season 1 then completely forget about it, then bring it back in On The Run, but they also don't explain why Amy felt so strongly that way about Pearl not taking her seriously.
I saw SEVERAL episodes from Season 1 and just could not get into it. I really tried to give it a chance but I thought the episodes were either dull or focused away from things that were much more interesting (like the Gems). But mostly thought I was kind of perturbed by the way Steve was regarded, the level of concern and support he received from the Gems seemed unrealistic. Or at least, it reminded me of pre-K entertainment, which holds a greater focus on trying to build up the self esteem of the viewers.
As so I thought Steven was like 5 years old and was surprised to find he was much older than that. He didn't behave like a 12 year old nor did the Gems treat him like one, they coddled and condescended to him like someone much younger so their relationship didn't feel realistic and the disconnect between their behavior and ages was enough to put me off. It was weird. I would have forgiven it and liked Steven more if he was 5, doing cute 5 y/o things but he wasn't. He's a lot better in season 2. He's got more of a backbone and the Gems regard him better.
Someone once described it as the fantasy of what a sibling relationship is like instead of the reality of it and I agree.
It's still got a ton of SOL stuff. It's just less "boy and his moms fight monsters" and more "boy and his moms befriend monsters".
>The whole underlying message of the show is that you can get through to almost anyone through patience, understanding, friendship, and kindness.
So it's Undermeme, the cartoon?
By definition they would be homosexual, since there is no other gender to be attracted to. That is a weird happenstance, would it be homosexual to be genderless and be attracted to your own species of genderless creatures? Is it also true for transformers?
Because, unlike Gems, Namekians are living biengs able of reproduction on their own. (Vomiting up eggs). Otherwise it's the same deal, he is genderless or agender and just uses he pronouns.
Of course DBZ never talks about this because they have more important things to do, like saving the universe and stuff.
>that would require Gems to have emotions and be capable of love, and only defective gems have feelings. These Gems are gathered up, gassed, and then harvested to make ships and weapons.
Holy shit no wonder this show rubbed me the wrong way, at last I truelly see! only degenerate progressives hold this kind of special snowflake victimhood syndrome.
It's no wonder /co/mblr enjoys this shit show.
That and beating the shit out of each other and training to gain new gucking powers.
That's how it should be done instead of shoving this lgbtbbq gender nonsense.
I fucking hate liberals.
I still hate it as much as I hated it the day it came out.
I just think all of the character designs are ugly and I'm unable to move past that. I know this show is supposed to be a deconstruction it's genre and in doing so it's also supposed to be a commentary on homogeneity but it still looks butt-ugly and I don't like it. I don't like the writing and I feel like everything the writers are trying to say is ideological preaching shoved in my face and the whole show just rubs me the wrong way
Does anyone else find the cluster an underwhelming threat?
I mean sure in their position it would be, but we all know it isn't a -real- threat because no way in hell the writers are gonna have it blow up the planet.
So we got the steven bomb, so I guess this means now we get another hiatus right? Dont get me wrong I enjoy this show, but the amount of hiatus' that rebecca and the crew take make it hard for me to believe they take their own shit seriously.
why is it that other cartoons keep on trucking during the holidays, yet rebecca decides
"oh, summer, time for a break!"
"oh, thankgiving! time for a break!"
"oh christmas! time for a break!"
"oh! having trouble tying my shoes this morning time for another hiatus!!!"
like seriously, get your shit together
its entirely their fault, have you not paid attention to her tumblr? she literally stopped the episodes just because she was having so much fun during the summer and wanted to stay on vacation for another month, SHE announces her productivity halts. maybe do some research before you spout out answers. CN does control a certain portion of the schedule, but rebecca can out and say they wont make a new ep for 3 months and cartoon network just has to deal with it and run reruns.

>fabled Talk no Jutsu
Boy you sure get a lot of weird (but neat) results on GIS when you key in Ha
I very much like the show, but the slice of life stuff based around the non-gems
except Connie, no regretsbores me a little bit.
Delving into gem lore is fascinating, so seeing them go about their business helps me get into their heads somewhat and reinforces the thing I like most about the show - wild conspiracy theory making.
And it's really goddamn satisfying when a theory gets confirmed.

It's probably because I'm a recovering fatty but Steven's arc is my favorite.
>that scene from "Fusion Cuisine" where he's just randomly putting cheese-balls on a cake
I made it once while bored staying at a friend's house. Would not recommend the popcorn, thought it would give it a nice crunch but it just ended up getting saturated by the whipped cream.
>Implying a shield isn't an offensive weapon.
>inb4 they just had to navigate through the cluster to get into the arbitrary "core" and then poof
i'd be so mad
cheesburger backpack was great in general for the sea spire and overall vibe
And it was cool seeing steven actually do some things to impress the gems on his very first mission. And forgetting a crucial thing for a crucial moment is super relatable to me
>"Introducing, our new schedule!"
>6:00am-7:00am Teen Titans Go!
>7:30am-9am Teen Titans Go!
>11am-12pm Tom & Jerry
>12pm-3pm Teen Titans Go!
>3pm-4pm Uncle Grandpa
>6pm Powerpuff Girls
>6:30pm-8:00pm Teen Titans Go!
I'd put Peridot in Pearl's role and Lapis in Amethyst's, because of similar gem placements. Forehead gems = brainy, neurotic, kind of an ego, and chest gems = rash, emotional, preoccupation with "home", etc
It could be either way though, it's neat how they're interchangeable like that
No way in Hell? What if they do? Time travel is a thing in this show. It's been used repeatedly.
>Earth is destroyed at the end of Season 2
>Season 3 is a space quest to Gemhome to obtain a time travel device to go back and stop the Cluster from being created in the first place
>They meet Rose way back when
>Steven realizes that if they succeed, Peridot will never have existed because she was literally made for the Cluster mission
That's probably what it's actually foreshadowing and not that shipping shit. Pierre is on the Yellow Team and he's supposed to be Jasper, so who knows.
>because she was literally made for the Cluster mission
I think that's inaccurate. She's mostly a maintenance gem. She was just put on that mission. She had nothing to do with the cluster.
>TFW they will become Rainbow Quartz at some point
>Pearl loves it and Steven is so excited about the fusion process - partly because it allows him to show off his awesome dancing skills - they do it all the time
>Amethyst will be ambivalent as to whether she likes it
>...and ends up fusing with Peridot
Nope. But if you want a good show that does almost everything SU does and better? MLP. They even have fightan sequences now.
How does it feel to be the /co/ pariahs now, you tumblrfags?
> Look, mom! I can parrot shitposts because I'm too stupid for critical thinking and independent thought!
Normally, if you don't know what you're talking about, you just don't post.
Except I do know what I'm talking about. Just like with MLP back in the day, I decided to watch the series premier, to find out what all the autism was about.
MLP drew me in. SU made me bored.
That's what I do to, ship Steven with the Gems once Connie dies and Steven decides to live with the CGs forever.
Also I need more waifudot in my life
I recently got my sister to watch it. She finished up the first season recently and is in love, but it took her a long time to get there, which I can definitely understand.
The one detriment is that, for how great the fleshed out characters, plot and DEEPEST LORE are, it takes a LONG time to get to that point, which makes it hard to recommend to people when you tell them it gets good after half a season.
Oh /co/ hated it in its early days, alright
But with MLP. I'll admit the premiere turned me off. Sometime later I gave it another chance with a random episode. The slice of life parts mixed with adventure-y things made me love it.
>He didn't behave like a 12 year old nor did the Gems treat him like one, they coddled and condescended to him like someone much younger.
The Gems treat pretty much all of humankind like that. Even in recent episodes they consider them naive and fragile squishy creatures who need guidance and protection. I wonder if the CG will ever overgrow that concept they have. They even get genuinely surprised when Greg got to be useful catching up Lapiz's message.
aren't we on hiatus AGAIN? They need to get on a better schedule.
I wish cartoons had 30 minute blocks again. Its stupid to see a couple of good episodes, wait however long and then see an episode about how Sadies a fucking spaghetti factory. I mean, waiting a whole week just to see a 11 minute episode that could just be nothing? Fuck it pisses me off.
I dunno. Sometimes i feel like dropping the show, but this last steven bomb had me gripped. Peridot seems to really change the pace of the show, which i kind of like. I already know that after this though, its gonna be all about humans again.
you will like them, and then rebecca sugar will let her yuri anime fetish seep into every facet of quality story to slow it down for her fetish, much like korrasami. its a good show that suffers from 'quality control 404 not found'
>tfw the cluster is a gigantic sentient being
>like a gigantic monster with the mind of a child
>tfw it becomes friend with steven
Maybe he'still just a bunch of gem shards shaped like a skull or a diamond but who knows
Steven's and Pearl's fusion is probably gonna be very glamorous. God I can't wait to see them fusing.
I've been thinking that Steven/Gem fusions identify as male because Steven has a gender and a biological sex, while the Gems don't have either.
That's kinda why I like Stevenbombs, you'll get a mixed bag of really good ones and maybe a shitty one. I just wish we knew if the schedule will officially a one-bomb-a-month thing. The seemingly endless limbo is annoying and kills interest if you have no fucking idea when the show is coming back.
>I've been thinking that Steven/Gem fusions identify as male because Steven has a gender and a biological sex, while the Gems don't have either.
I beg to differ. Look at Connie, as a human whom Steven have fused with, it maintained its female features (such as the real gems, genderless, sexless, but with "female" characteristics)
Do you think Yellow Diamond stays on Homeworld because she too lives in fear of what she's created? Here on Earth?
Why didn't Steven rightfully put the Crystals' asses on blast at the end of The Test?
All the Gems can run for President. The Constitution stipulates that if you were an American citizen at the time of America's founding, you can run (since, otherwise, nobody would be able to run because nobody had been born in America yet because it hadn't existed before then). It's an outdated law because there aren't many 250-year-old Presidential hopefuls, but it's still on the books because it'd be too much work to get it removed.
The Gems were living in America at the time of the nation's founding, so they can run freely.
That's interesting - it's exactly the opposite of what happened to me.
No, no, no.
I think Earth killed Pink Diamond somehow.
Or what's left of it...
Because he loves them and appreciates that they are in a difficult position.
Are you kidding?
Pilot Garnet is flawless, Garnet now looks like an elephant
>its doing an excellent job with its pacing
You're joking, right? That's one of the shows biggest weaknesses.
Is Log Date really good or is it just me? It's been a while since a SU episode last made me laugh and feel tingly inside.
Lol are you kidding me?
You draw the gems wrong you are automatically blackmailed .
It makes the sonic fan base look appealing ...
Well slightly ... slight appealing.
The point is, SU fa base is filled with normies.
the root of the problem is tumblr. but yeah SU gets it particularly bad because of their preshuz 'representation'
like that excuses forcing teens into suicide. zamii wasn't even the only one, btw.
I want to chew on amethysts thighs, also does anybody have any speculation on what "same old world" could be about? The title alone makes it seem like a crazy world changing episode
With that title it could be a Jasper one, maybe? After she unfuses and gets away from Lapis (I don't know how it'd happen but it's happening) she could reminisce about the planet she fought so hard for and ultimately failed to defend. Either that or a Lapis episode.
When are you people gonna stop forcing this shit?
That broad didn't die, and that entire drama bullshit doesn't even belong here. It was all a Tumblr thing.
You say Tumblr is the problem but you're the only one who brings that shit here.
Really? Interesting. I haven't seen much of the show outside of season 1 so is nice that they address it, I'd like to give it another shot.
See then I'm not the only one that noticed it.
>While we complain about 'Oh this episode is a filler episode!', it really isn't. An episode that may seem like filler will probably have a hint to an upcoming revelation. I think Sadie's Song is a big example of this with the song. That's gonna come into play probably at the season 2 finale.
