Should I give pic related a chance?

As of now I'm only interested cause of the cute protag and catchy theme song

But is the show itself actually any good?
>>
It's ok
>>
>>77696570
Just watch an episode or 2 and see for yourself. I find that works best in determining if you'll like it or not.
>>
>>77696570

always
is it any good?
it's not as good as the cute protag and the catchy theme songs, but.. it's still good
>>
>>77696598
>>77696668
Should I start in order, or are there any suggested episodes to start with?
>>
>>77696719
For any new show, I recommend starting in order. If that doesn't grab you in the first half-dozen episodes or so, you can ask the fans for a recommended list to see if it gets better for you later.
>>
>>77696719
The show doesn't rely on any kind of continuity, so you can jump around to the stronger episodes:

Cheer Up Star
Interdimensional Field Trip
Blood Moon Ball
Mewberty
>>
>>77696570
Just watch the damn show and see for yourself
>>
>>77696851
>Mewberty
Not OP but

Is that episode as boner-inducing as the name leads me to believe?
>>
>>77696570
I gave it a shot, and I liked it
Cute and fun, I also liked the villain (Toffee) since he actually remained the weak but intelligent villain in the end rather than some generic powerful boss like what happens in most cases
>>
>>77696919
Only if you're into boy-crazy monstergirls.

I haven't seen this show either. All I know is that people keep telling me to draw porn of it.

This is probably a weird comparison but it felt like Mucha Lucha made for girls.
>>
>>77696966
But unlike Mabel, Star has done nothing wrong
>>
>>77696592
Yeah, that's pretty much it. It has a "ongoing plot" but it doesn't do much to have an ongoing story, but the episodes that stand their own still don't have much going on, when you look back.
It's just alright, needs more time to really get a good formula going, at least that's what I think.
>>
>>77696962
Porn is what got me interested in this show

>>77696570
I watched exactly one episode. Lolrandom done meh.

Could just watch it and find out for yourself.
What if everyone here says it's good and you think it's shit?

Better to see for yourself.

Go in expecting a cute/decently funny cartoon with 10-minute episodic plots (but also some continuity) and a nice art style and you probably won't be disappointed, especially since you like Star's design already. If you stick around for the more dramatic moments and the actually-existent season 1 plot (begins more or less halfway through the season) it might even exceed your expectations.

It's not for everyone, but it's nowhere near as shit as it can be made out to be on /co/ sometimes either, sometimes by people who haven't watched it but assume it's "tumblr" or an anime ripoff-- it's just not as good as some of the best TV/cartoons. I think the viewing experience is more enjoyable if you watch all the episodes close together instead of over a period of weeks/months, like when it first aired. You can see smaller details being referenced later on, and not get your expectations too high through waiting for more over a long period.

One of the biggest complaints I see, that I mostly agree with, is how useless/generic the villain is. This actually becomes an issue that is commented on and dealt with in the show, which might make things more watchable if you know that going in.
>>
>>77696985
It's really not sexy at all. Kinda disturbing really.
>>
subpar show that got a bit better as it went along, cute moments are in abundance, jokes could be better though.
animation that varies in quality, sometimes it's pretty fluid and nice and at other times it can be pretty janky and stiff
Star and Marco are great and bounce off each other well, most other characters dont really get much love though
It's nothing spectacular or fresh but with a bit more polish it could be pretty great
looking forward to see what happens in season 2
>>
>>77697441
This. Nothing was outright scandalous, it was more implications than anything.

That reveals too much.

>>77696851
>Cheer Up Star
>Stronger episode

That was the first episode I watched and almost dropped the show because of it. Thank god Star is as cute as she is or else I probably wouldn't have watched any more episodes.

It's like the most okay show ever
Solid 7/10 the whole way through
>>
>>77696851
>>77698450
I didn't think Quest Buy was that great or memorable when it aired, but I rewatched it recently and thought it was entertaining and better than I gave it credit for at the time. I think if you don't want to start with the first episode, it's pretty representative of the characters of Star, Marco, and the villains, as well as the general tone of the series.

Also it's paired with Cheer Up Star; I think it's better than that one. Kind of a dumb title though.

It's not for everyone. The series suffers early on with episodes too short and lolrandom sometime, but as the series progresses it gets better. If you want to skip bad moments, ask for the core episodes. Anyways, the first season is kinda short, so you better watch the whole thing.
Right now I'm a fan of the show, but it took me a while to like it. In fact, it was Mewberty the episode that hooked me to the series and not because of the monstergirl situation, but the soul crushing moment at the end. Give it a try, you may like it.
>>
Her design makes me cringe. I'm not sure if I'll be able to get past it to enjoy the story.
>>
>>77696570

It's like Rick and Morty for kids. I watched the whole thing, but only really liked a few episodes. The rest was very average. Maybe if you're 10 years old.

It's an okay show, you can enjoy it after a few beers. Don't expect nothing serious, but it has some WTF moments every now and then (including some where you think "how did they get this to air?").

It's one of the comfiest shows I've ever watched. Cute characters and interactions, good designs, and the first few episodes have great animation. Shipping is top-notch if you're into that. It's enjoyable in a mindless, fluffy sort of way.

What are the core episodes?
>>
>>77701001
>>77701288
it's never bothered me as much as it has you guys, but there's definitely something "off" about it.

maybe the lack of color and the characters appearing to have semi-realistic anatomy despite retaining their original designs and proportions. or how so many of them have the characters looking right at the "camera."

I've only watched one episode of it at a friend's house. Overall I didn't find it that bad, nothing special either but there was something about it that made me not care to pick it up. Some villain made the girl destroy her wand and that ended up becoming an emotional movement because oh no no more magic? but then literally out of fucking nowhere a tiny pony shows up, gets inside of the wand and fixes/upgrades it. My friend said that it's always like that, where any kind of real problem gets resolved in stupid ways.

>>
>>77701304
This probably varies from person to person, and they aren't necessarily the best, but these are the episodes that have plot-related developments (some more than others):

>Star Comes to Earth
>Party with a Pony
>Monster Arm (maybe? seems like it may be continued in a future episode)
>Quest Buy (just because a seemingly throwaway joke recurs during a dead serious moment in a later episode, not really for the whole episode itself)
>Mewberty
>Blood Moon Ball (moreso on the shipping side of things)
>Fortune Cookies
>St. Olga's Reform School for Wayward Princesses
>Mewnipendence Day
>Marco Grows a Beard
>Storm the Castle

Last 5 are most plot-related; arguably more could be added or removed. Not sure if you've seen the show or not, but I guess this works for someone who hasn't seen it?
>>
I've tried a couple times to watch it. But for some reason I really really hate star's va. And it just kills it for me.
Like, it's not that she's bad per se. It just doesn't fit the design of the character or something.
>>
>>77701540
>It just doesn't fit the design of the character or something

That's how I felt too, but in a positive way.

I expected her to sound like a little girl on a sugar rush talking a mile a minute and was really relieved she actually had a lower voice. I like how weird her VA makes her sound at times.
>>
>>77696570
>catchy theme song
The music is all shit.
>>
>>77701540
It does feel under developed, the OP really needs more womans voice and less acoustic guitar.
>>
>>77701468
>just because a seemingly throwaway joke recurs during a dead serious moment in a later episode, not really for the whole episode itself
I saw the whole show and don't remember this. Explanation?
>>
>>77701639
The wand being powered by a little unicorn, which looks close to dying when the wand is close to losing power in Quest Buy, and then its ghost appearing in the finale after Star destroys the wand, implying the spell just killed it.

At least I read its first appearance as a recurring joke for the episode that would never come up again. I don't think I even thought about it again until the last episode.
>>
>>77701417
Yeah but she still doesn't have the other part of the wand so I don't think she can use it.
>>
It's alright, watched 4 episodes. I will watch the whole thing later, not because I love it - I don't - but because I am hoping it will get better as it progresses. AT and SU got stronger as they went along, so I hope the same will happen with this one.
>>
>>77703122
It definitely grows on you. When I first started watching it I figured I'd drop it after a few episodes but I kept watching it anyway because I had nothing better to do. Now I can't wait for season 2, but maybe that's just me.

>>77704203
Same. My interest in it definitely picked up with the plot + finale, even though I wasn't at all watching it for a plot at first.

I like that it can have a story and continuity but also just a lot of episodes meant to be light and entertaining; it's disappointing that that always gets translated to "plotless" when people talk about it, even though by now that's obviously not the case.

its cute and pretty funny. It does not have enough plot brewing like Steven Universe to make me SUPER interested, although I enjoy it and really wish it did have longer episodes and some sort of bigger story in the works (maybe next season)

>>77696570

Your mileage may vary. Considerably.

I would personally recommend the later episodes, as it feels like the creators got more comfortable as they went on, but the earlier part of the series is fairly good too.

If nothing else, I would recommend watching the St Olga's episode because god damn does it feel way different to the rest of the series. For a show with music punctuating most anything, the lack of music in that episode is almost unsettling.

In an ocean of shit modern cartoons one that is actually good goes a long fucking way in my opinion. I vastly prefer it over gravity falls and steven universe but thats just me.

>>77711409
That's a pretty bad opinion but that's just me. Those shows are better in every way than Star.

>>77696570
It's sorta like a flytrap. You come expecting a decent show and instead you get shipping wars and intolerable cute. I started watching months ago and decided that I would never be like these fucking nerds that argue about who should be with who, but now I wanna nut in her ass
