About to marathon the first episode of Steven Universe. What can I expect?
it's a legitimately really damn good show, although it takes a couple episodes to really hit it's stride(around Bubble Buddies is the usual accepted point), also have the official Season 1 episode order
I'm currently watching with my sister. We will probably have nightmares about this shit right here for a week.
Not bad so far.
>Marathoning one episode
You're a fucking retard. That being said season 1 is pretty enjoyable before the finale. That's where things start getting pretty lackluster. Enjoy it while you can
>tfw you just want to talk about nice things and not have people shit all over parts of a show
>took me a few hours to work up the energy to make this post because i knew i would hate getting sucked into this negativity
Mediocrity and melodrama.
If you wish to circlejerk I'm sure /trash/ has a live SU general if /co/ is still not allowing them.
Accept that the show has issues and not everyone likes half-assed slice-of-life fantasy bullshit instead of being some weird fuck that gets upset at posts on the internet.
...Y'know, it's not sex (debatable) but are the fusions like the temporary kids of the respective gems? They have the qualities of their components but at the same time are completely new entities.
Overreact much? Chill out. We're supposed to ENJOY this show.
You sound like a real ray of sunshine. Why don't you go to the park to beat up skaters for a bit? That might make you feel better for two minutes.
wedon't have a problem with her eating, we have a problem that there is a contradiction between the three episodes
in one she likes pies, enough to dry when its wasted
in one Steven wants her to eat breakfast with him, and she has no objection
in the third She doesn't want to eat so much she breaks a fusion
Literally just a shit excuse to make a thread for shitposting SU
I AM a real pussy. And my default state is happy. Clearly, I am doing something right.
I do not need to be surrounded by sunshine and flowers incessantly.
But it does seem you feel the need to be surrounded by despair and ugliness.Why watch this show, the?
SU is a pretty good show tbqhfam its got some tumblr tier qualities but that honestly doesnt detract from show like it does for some others.
You should probably avoid the core fanbase cause they're pretty faggy.
It has some waifu-tier characters tho
>mfw Turkey knows who's the real main character of the show
You can expect a lot of this.
It's a great show, but don't expect to be able to discuss it.
Name literally one tumblr thing about the show
those aren't tumblr, those are sexy
Fat Albert over here.
There's actually a lot of things that could be considered tumblr.
Steven's crossdressing is the best example I can think of.
Depending on how autistic your definition of "tumblr" is, you could even see ambiguously gendered aliens, fat main character, and female characters who are at all strong and useful as tumblr.
And yes, there are indeed claims to Steven Universe's tumblr levels that count both "Gems have no gender" and "Gems are female and strong" as evidence for tumblr.
Anyway, it's still a good show, even if it's not for everyone. Don't let the first few episodes, or /co/'s shit taste, stop you from giving it a shot.
>Steven's crossdressing is the best example I can think of.
Crossdressing is in no way a thing solely belonging to Tumblr. Not to mention, here, it's played for humor sake, basically on the same level than Uncle Grandpa.
So, it's not a Tumblr thing, it's a Bugs Bunny corssdressing thing.
So what exactly about it was tumblr?
It's just authors exploring the idea of fusion, just like any other author usually explores the capabilities of whatever magic elements he got going on in his story
This, every third self respecting protagonist at any giving fiction crossdressed at least ones
It's a trope
It's probs been said, but Steven is insanely annoying for the first several, 10+ episodes. He gits gud. Don't give up.
>When Bugs Bunny crossdressed it was the pinnacle of good taste and humor
>When Steven did it it was the day we knew SJWs had finally taken over cartoons
It's made tumblr because /co/ doesn't like it.
There are a few scenes that give me that impression.
Actually as far as fat characters in the show , they all made according to common fat-character tropes
>Amythist is unhealthy slob - so she's fat
>Ronaldo is nerd - so he's fat
>Greg is old washed up dad who used to be rockstar - so he's fat
>Steven is goofy kid who always eats unhealthy food - so he's fat
There's really no FATANDPROUD thing going on in the show
Once you get pass either episode 13 or 25, you'll probably stay hooked.
But can you blame him?
He's so famous!
>muh bugs bunny
You know what, no, Steven was just casually crossdressing. It was unexpected but it wasn't the butt of the joke, and if someone says that's exclusively Tumblr then they can just shove it.
The only thing I find more annoying than Tumblr shit is this sniffling apologeticism from anything vaguely resembling Tumblr and desperate shuffling to the furthest opposite direction possible.
>Implying you don't want him to become even more fabulous
Dialogue heavy and provides good contrast to the other three big fusions. Also those hips.
No, only those who confident enough in their own masculinity
Not that you would know anything about that
Woops I missread your statemant. We actually thought the same. My mistake. have more poses
>All you fools saying lion lickers are better than cookie cat
Wow. Really good bait. So original
>why is it they're crying all the time?
Crying is the manliest thing you can do.
Cry for your nakama. Cry for your dreams.
IT IS THE ULTIMATE ROMANCE
>that confident yet sweet demeanor
Meanwhile Sugilite is literally a dumpy nicki minaj monster who's only use so far has been knocking down a tower, which is negated by all the destruction she caused. She's the only fusion to fuck up so badly in that regard.
Why don't the crew update KBCW anymore? I loved that blog.
>There's lots of crying in SU because Sugar loves One Piece
That makes a lot of sense.
Maybe she also likes Greek epic poems? They tend to express a lot of emotion in them.
I tip my fedora goodbye fools
I'm checking out a much bigger shit hole
STEVEN IS BACK BABY

GET HYPED FUCKERS
>Monday, January 4: “The Answer”– Garnet finally tells Steven the story of how she came to be a Crystal Gem.
HYPE IS OFF THE CHARTS HOLY SHIT
>Steven has doubts about believing in everyone.
about time that happy little fucker has an emotional crisis
Uh, shouldn't this have it's own thread?
I mean, just seems like it should be it's own topic especially with all the hype and discussion from those descriptions.
SOMEONE MAKE IT PLEASE.
WE HAVE A RETURN DATE /SUG/ IS BACK BABY
also here's Amethyst
>Garnet finally tells Steven the story of how she came to be a Crystal Gem.
This is the one with the alternate animation that Sugar talked about. Probably used in the flashbacks, also rounds out the Peridot interaction episodes.
Acknowledgment of how much time's passed, Peridot probably introduced to the concept of short human lifespans. Hopefully not a recap episode.
>It Could've Been Great.
No idea why they'd need to go to the moon, but it explains the "Back to the Moon" episode.
YD somehow shows that she got Peridot's distress signal. Barring that, the something's revealed (maybe on the moon) that makes Steven trust the gems even less.
>Log Date 7 15 2.
Steven listens to Peridot's audio log, possibly more Homeworld lore.
>Thursday, January 7: “Message Received” – Steven has doubts about believing in everyone.
>Friday, January 8: “Log Date 7 15 2”– Steven sneaks a listen to a friend’s audio diary.
oh fuck will Steven join HW or question if he's on the right side
A drama/action-oriented kids' show with adult themes.
You'll pull through for the waifu, good luck
>loss of a parent
>exploration of intimate relationships
>deliberate deceit of close friends
But yeah a lot of crying
>tfw I have a shitty time keeping the show and the fandom as separate things in my head
This is the only show that I have issues wanting to start because of how shitty the fandom has gotten since it exploded back during the first stephen bomb thing.
what fandom? you go online and look at character art.
That's the extent you should go for as a fan, sometimes I discuss how things work, like gem culture, because it's just interesting how a race of near immortal magical people with a caste system operates.
could you bring up some examples? nothing should actually come between you and the show
the tumblr end of the fandom. There are too many but the most immediate example being the artist who got harrased to the point of attempting suicide by so called fans of su.
I am almost certain that I will like the show, I just need to hitch up my pants anf ignore all the shit those people do.
Probably the whole thing about nearly driving someone to suicide over their art. I also don't have anything to do with the fandom besides browsing the art and agree that you shouldn't let fans get in the way of enjoying the work, but that still made me feel ashamed by association.
I introduced the show to my girlfriend and she showed me some neat tags on tumblr, and the top are all artists.
any people who have blogs with statements or whatever aren't worth your time, go on pinterest and tumblr and just enjoy the art they provide. if you reject a website for it's bad side than you might as well leave 4chan because /mlp/ and /v/ bother you
4chan has "driven people to suicide" for years
that person was attention seeking and probably had a mental break down over having her "safe space" infected with criticism.
It's also one case of a bad fandom, Game of Thrones has caused more suicide over rape triggering I'm sure.
that's a joke, I don't believe that actually happened
It was definitely harassment beyond the point of reasonable criticism. We probably don't need to retread that ground here, though.
4chan isn't centered around a children's cartoon whose basic message is about being nice and understanding.
You know that was actually pretty well needed. the criticism was based on the artist drawing a thinner version of one of the characters (rose quartz) and it resulted in some hamplanets getting offended and some other people getting offended on their behalf.
but with suicide it made those people to be belittled and retreat, and now their echo chamber became about how awful they became.
overall it made the idiots realize they were taking their social justice crusade too far. this was a win win situation and thankfully nobody was actually hurt
except for some feelings, but without hurt feelings we don't have progress
>Crossdressing is in no way a thing solely belonging to Tumblr. Not to mention, here, it's played for humor sake, basically on the same level than Uncle Grandpa.
>So, it's not a Tumblr thing, it's a Bugs Bunny corssdressing thing.
The difference is context in the context of that episode there was no reason for Steven to put on a dress.
He could have gone out with Sadie on stage or just by himself but there was no reason to put the dress on.
It came across as pandering for a reason
lol he was singing a girl song, as a mystery guest. Just Imagine how egotistical it would be to go out dressed normal and just singing a cheesy song with no gimmick. Playing it off with a dress made it funny. people here just want to remain in a constant state of negativity with their outlook on things, just have fun for FUCK sakes
Steven is a showman and he want's to give people something to funny to watch
He's also a happy boy with no self doubt or complexes in his free soul - at the moment he wanted to dress like a girl and sing a girly song so he went and did it
>imagine how frail her self confidence must be.
>imagine how her world crumbled apart the moment she could no longer actually be around or talk to or feel rose.
>Over the Garden Wall
that doesn't count since it's a mini series
it's a fucking mess
pretty meh but gets that much appraisal because it's easy to watch, kids love it and so do autists, besides people love to suck disney's big cock.
>rick and morty
literally had 3 good episodes and used the hype to keep going into mediocrity
besides that, your "ballpark" is T-Ball to steven universe you over zealous fag.
I repeat brain dead
>mfw we learn nothing new about Homeworld
>mfw we learn nothing new about Rose or Yellow Diamon
>mfw it's just about 10 minutes about space lesbians and only space lesbians
Did you rike it?
I really can't get into this show, not because it's tumblr: the show (which I thought it was before I came on 4chan) but because of the character designs. Not saying it's a bad show, I'm sure it's at least somewhat good because of how many fans it has, just ever since I was a kid I never bothered with cartoons that wheren't appealing visually. I can barely watch GF because of this, and I've missed out on Ed Edd and Eddy too. Not sure if it will bother you, but be prepared for ugly.
I think the reason that they're going with the alternate art style for the flashback might be to show other gems without actually directly showing them. I think that we might see silhouettes of gems that we'll see in the future, like the diamonds and other well-known gems like topaz, jade, and emerald, which we won't see directly for several episode yet, if even this season.
Thinking that Emerald in particular might appear and be related to Ruby/Sapphire in some way, in reference to their real-world relation
I actually felt exactly the same before I watched it, and I resisted watching it for a long time for this exact reason.
The style grew on me like moss though. Now I actually really love it.
Still like it. I'm a big fan of schmaltz and Ruby and Sapphire should be able to bring that.
Then check all your sound settings... or try the vimeo link.
The character designs grow on you, usually. And even so, this show has some of the best background art I have ever seen.
Soon my friends
Soon we shall see more tiny pie gem
Okay I'll give EE&E a try, I usually leave SU on if it's I'm flipping through channels
Well I keep pushing myself along but the art style still bothers me. Thanks anyway though. I do agree the backgrounds are nice though.
EE&E really utilizes the fact that it's a cartoon to its advantage. It has some absolutely unhinged moments and even episodes that completely throw common sense to the wind, and it actually manages to work in the show's favor. It has Loony Tunes levels of slapstick and visual jokes, like multiples of the same character appearing on screen or characters hovering in the air breifly before they fall. Besides that the show also has fantastic animation, extremely creative use of sound effects, and characters that play fantastically off of each other.
The art style is pretty rough at first, but you get used to it and there's a marked improvement after the first season. It also works much better in motion for some reason.
We finally have a reference for him! I'm going to keep calling it a him because it's a genderless monster and that's what I prefer.
It's three dead people shoved together to create new life. It's whatever gender pleases my boner and heart more.
A little disappointing but I can bear with it.
That's not going to happen is it? Sugar wouldn't put something like that in her show, right?
Lol, that probably would have been a better idea.
Lets face it, the last three episodes in this bomb seem ominous as fuck.
>It Could’ve Been Great - The Gems take a trip to the moon
>Message Received - Steven has doubts about believing in everyone
>Log Date 7 15 2 - Steven sneaks a listen to a friend’s audio diary
Some shit is going to go down.
Oh fuck, Peridot sent Yellow Diamond a distress message before she joined the CGs and Pearl fixed the communication towers, making the message repeat.
Pearl might have doomed them all in her thirst, who cares about Garnet's feelings of being used, YD's coming!
When will Pearl get over whatever shit she has going on in her head and be a decent person for once.
God, don't even compare SU to Goblins.
That's way too horrifying.
Honestly I feel sorry for /co/, steven universe was the only show to compel me to waifupost. It has some kind of hold on me.
It'd be nice if they could actually get off their asses a moderate right. It'd be a downright fucking Christmas miracle.
How would the crystal gems hold against Chara?
Alright sorry asking.
Have a nice day.
>Implying anyone would want to be friends with sharpie anus
Get fucked you pathetic autist, you had to go to another website to beg for your mod, so you shoved a sharpie up your pooper for nothing!
It's gonna be a fun shitposting ride. We will be here having fun while the rest of the anti-SU and anti/sug/ fags cry harder each time the post counter rises.
Then we will disappear into the abyss when the show gets into another hiatus
steven universe has all the best fan fiction just look at this amazing one I found!!!!!!
>You shouldn't try to talk about a cartoon on /co/
I mean, you're right, but still.
>seeing someone's POW friends forced together in a human-centipede manner and being forced to incapacitate them
>having similar abominations attack human landmarks in some silent hill type atmosphere
if you think that those themes are easy for babies/young children to take in then you should not be allowed to breed.
The word hiatus hurts me now. Can't wait for the shittings and neat pictures though. I got no idea what's gonna happen 'cus the episode names have always been weird.
I'm not memeing when I say it's a better idea to go to
nah man if they went to tumblr, they'd be immediately trans/homophobic rasict misogynists and be told to kill themselves if they're cis (hell even if they're not cis they be told to kill themselves)
I actually came to /co/ to see what you guys have to say about this video.
Apparently, SU is the most reblogged animated TV show on tumblr. And Rebecca Sugar is some strange looking gender ambiguous Pat type person.
Looks pretty tumblr to me. What is your guys's take?
Rebecca is sweet. I hope she grows her hair out again, she looked her best with long hair.
Though why is telling people to love pretty tumblr?
She's very difficult to look at. She looks like a boy hipster. Which is already unsettling to look at in of itself. Now ad to that the gender ambiguity, and it's just difficult to deal with.
>Though why is telling people to love pretty tumblr?
It's not that. It's the comment about dedicating it to people who feel like an alien living among real people. And to be "strong flexible and fearless". You could draw parallels from that those struggling with being abnormal. Which, doesn't necessarily equate to sex or gender. But it could be anything. Like, tumblr is supposedly the place that preaches acceptance of everyone's struggles. No matter how retarded.
>Oh, you're actually a female pony living in a male's body? That's cool, I accept you. Be you, Fluffernutter.
Her message wasn't to be awesome. It wasn't to improve yourself. It wasn't to be creative. It wasn't to follow your dreams. Nope. Her message was to be strong in dealing with the struggles of who you are. So it comes down to trying to make people feel good about their special snowflake identity.
I mean, I could be reading this all wrong. But it sounds very tumblr to me.
What? Everybody makes those kinds of images, like this one. Do you hate fun or something
Everybody has their struggles anon, it could be with who you are or just with work.
I get that the message wasn't about improving yourself but I don't see anything harmful with it.
considering how SU staff had to step in about tumblr's disgusting mistreatment of fan artists who go "off model", i think it may have also told the rabid side of the fandom to fuck off as politely as possibe.
Who said anything about it being harmful?? I called it tumblr, not harmful.
I just think that the words she chose is meant to target people struggling with things like their identity. How else could you interpret people feeling like an alien? That's pretty much when you feel so different from everyone else, that you're essentially out of this world. You feel like you don't really fit in for whatever reason. That's all about one's identity, and how you feel struggle with it. Which is tumblr stuff.
>mfw I know someone that uses tumblr and watches the show.
>says that she feels that there is nothing wrong with how the fandom treated Zamii
>dodges the question of if it's ok to badger a person to the point where they try to commit suicide by saying she was friends with a pedophile.
Like I know tumblr is a buzzword to this board, but fuck man, it changes people, and not in a good way.
How did the staff tell them to fuck off, I'll feel a lot better watching this show knowing that the creators are based.
I don't give a shit if people want to be genderqueer otherkin yahoos. So long as I can be a "cis" male in peace.
I was using tumblr to mean the safespace environment for like-minded queer acceptance. Both good and bad. It's a fact that tumblr has some bad shit on there too.
No bully is a pretty good message in any situation, there's no way to misinterpret that or fuck it up.
Was she always like this, or did she just become a bitch recently?
Relatively good friend and got me into the show. Knew her for a few years, gradually started saying some SJW shit.
Get upset with her one day after she told some people some rather personal shit I told her in confidence and she told me she would not tell anyone. She actually thinks that she did not lie and proceeds to tell me to fuck off.
Mixed feelings about it, but honesty, nothing of value was lost.
I know, having empathy for another human being, what a fag.
There was a short-haired blonde girl in my highschool who I was 50/50 on whether she was just a weak-chinned sad-eyed boy until a few years of band and golf club with her finally clued me in
I barely interacted with her and she wasn't particularly pretty but wew, the degeneracy she inspired was off the charts let me tell you (I can't actually tell you, blue board, but solidarity is nice, is it not?)
Me, personally? Well no one has bothered me personally. But I have read disparaging things about cis males in general. Why they would do it? That's a question that can't quite be answered in a simple blanket statement. There's a lot of individual and environmental factors.
But I think you're missing the point. The point was that I expect to get the respect that I give to others. And seeing how I respect your right to identify as anything you want. I would hope the same respect is returned.
You gotta understand that these people are mentally damaged. And I don't mean that to, say, talk shit about them. They are legit messed up.
So they feel they are attacked all the time, they are actually pretty noided about everything.
They are vulnerable and weak and whatever shit the feminists throw they buy it because that's all they got. It makes them feel safe or understood, whatever.
I've met some of them and yeah, it was very awkward. But online everybody is different. But I'm digressing.
The point is I do agree with you, just wanted to see your take on the "cis oppression".
What shit are you even trying to push here? Why don't you two tumblrinas lay it on tumblr, where this shitstorm started?
Oh yeah because it's easier to get more attention on here.
Pearl is feeling sad /co/, draw her some cool friends to cheer her up.
>just wanted to see your take on the "cis oppression".
Why? Well since you asked: I think anyone can be made a victim. Even people who are in the majority. There are perpetrators, and then there are victims. Just because you're in a majority, doesn't mean you don't feel like shit when someone says something shitty about you.
The point of my sarcastic statement, was to illustrate the absurdity that you would think someone isn't worthy of empathy, just because they are "attention whoring" on their blog. Like, what else is their blog supposed to be about, if not themselves?
>retards that spew bullshit and present it as unquestionable fact
So what is this I'm lookin at in this same thread that says "/sug/ is guilty for making a girl pretend to make a suicide attempt".
>because that's what you are doing.
Yes and no. They're new entities that have the memories and feelings of the people who made them.
It's like putting yourself in a blender with the other person and having partial control and awareness of what you became
Impossible! Don't you know that all groups are collective entities that therefore hold power equal to their size within society? Why would you ever believe they were atomized individuals who act as relatively isolated individuals that are reacting to each other based on a myriad factors and in general ignorance of each other?
>is the animation this fucking bad all the time?
How likely do you think it is that Pearl's going to fuck something up on the moon?
Post yfw she does.
