    Quite a bit
    They're not all winners but I think the early tone is very charming, even if they do manage a smattering of better emotional stories later on

      it was a fun experience when they were airing and everyone was slowly piecing together the lore, but watching them in retrospect would be pretty boring. the art peaked near the end of season 1 and for whatever reason the boarding just got a lot worse. i think i'll always have some sense of nostalgia for it

      the visuals for this show really could be amazing, too bad it didn't really stay at this level

        The visuals were always kind of inconsistent but it had genuinely stunning moments all the way through season 3. That camera turn around Pearl's head in Mr. Greg is remarkably well-animated. Shit got fricking lazy after that though, in fact almost immediately after Mr. Greg aired funnily enough.

          we both mentally pictured the exact same well-animated moment. that's kind of telling of how inconsistent the quality was

    I haven't watched steven universe since it came out in 2013, should I give it a try now? I'm not oblivious to it since I know a fair bit of the characters' names but I also don't really know what happens in it

      Nobody can tell you how you'll feel about it except yourself
      It really isn't that big of a commitment. The real pain was the endless hiatuses when it was still airing

        Though I'd disclose the experience for me was definitely a diminishing return after a point

      No not really, unless you really want to I guess.
      But you won't be missing much it's just a shitty melodrama that goes nowhere with half the episodes being random episodic shit about problems of people who live in the town like they can't make a pizza or some guy likes someone and needs help to tell his feelings so it's 20 minutes of drivel each time.

      Unless you have the hots for one of the characters I'd say no.

      I liked it while it was airing and so did most of Cinemaphile once the second half kicked in, the season 1 finale even got a sticky thread.

      The first two seasons are a lot of fun but about half way through season three the show takes a massive fricking nosedive, and while it does somewhat recover it's hard for me to recommend it now.

        It was so surreal watching this show go from barely being talked about, to the most popular show on Cinemaphile, to widely discussed on Cinemaphile in general, to rapidly becoming hated here, losing popularity, and basically ending on a wet fart. What a fricking rollercoaster.

          Speaking as someone who was part of the "fandom" for a bulk of its runtime it was interesting how most of us migrated to /trash/ in order to post about this stupid show. It was a bit sad when the show ended and that community evaporated, but it kind of shows that I liked the community around the show more than the show itself.

            /sug/ was comfy barring that schizo discord shit and the time a bunch underage redditors flooded it looking for leaks.

            The Steven Universe community was a lot more entertaining then the show proper. It's kind of sad how the theories were better than the story we got.

    Honestly there’s really only 3 things I rewatch from Steven universe, the movie, stronger than you and the she’s gone moment. Even saying rewatch is generous in all honesty.

    It could be boring or annoying at times but overall was fine. Carried by interesting backgrounds and worldbuilding sprinkled throughout the stupid typical fat moron cartoon protagonist shit that you got from cartoons in that period and the period prior.
    The show probably peaked with Jailbreak, and after the cluster arc just got worse.

    The background music from season 1 was so fricking good, legitimate contender for strongest OST in a Cinemaphile property. It feels like even the music got lazier as the show went on, but man.

      yes, i listened to the OST all the time. i think it's probably the best thing to come out of SU. the background art was also really strong

      The music really helped to build on the idea of the show having a large overarching structure with how strongly it used leitmotifs, and helped so much to sell the sort of angsty mood that was permeating through season 1. It's so weird that those things hardly show up later in the show, it feels like the music just got relegated to background filler and it made the whole atmosphere suffer. I also miss how season 1 had these sort of darker washed-out color pallets and heavy use of shadows that later seasons just completely got rid of. Atmospherically it's such a stronger season than what it evolved into.

      The fact that it went from a fetchquest storyline in exotic random locations with a lot of hinting at alien lore to a very melodramatic and unsatisfying story about people interacting with each other still bums me out a lot. Them just going on missions was the shit for me when I was a kid.

      I really miss how the show had this undercurrent of dread through the first season, like Steven was just a naïve kid in a genuinely fricked up world that we only sometimes saw real glimpses into.

        It had a lot of potential to be just this monster-of-the-week building up to some great reveal later on, but unfortunately RS wanted something completely different and was willing to change course. She didn't even set standards for character designs and proportions.

        And then we finally saw the rest of that world and it wasn't nearly as fricked up as the show had been implying, and rarely even got close to some of the fricked up moments from Season 1.

      Nah later seasons still had bangers like Bismuths Theme, the White Diamond music, Steven VS Jasper.

    Not really, Steven himself was annoying as shit and the good moments feel few and far between.
    To be perfectly fair, I haven't watched this how in years so I don't remember what happened in what season.
