i just watched the movie, and several episodes, with my little sister, and i was so moved by them28 posts and 18 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.
i love that show... but was a little disappointed with the season end
the new movie, and the new show though? i love them. the movie, especially, was full of great songs.
and Spinelle... i so painfully relate to her. i loved her so.
the character i still relate most to though, is pearl. she had so many good scenes.

Overall, Steven Universe is hyped up a lot, but also talked down on way too much, I think.
I feel like it is probably very good, but people started to hate it because it got "too popular".
I duno what to expect.

ponies was no different, in that sense :c
No fandom ever is. I kinda wanna post "surprised Pikachu" every time people talk about "bad fandoms" because of this. It ALWAYS happens - something comes around, folks enjoy it, and suddenly when it gets big enough a camp of throat-crammers and another camp of "Cynical and condescending = Smart" preachers start fighting about who can grow the biggest, hardest internet-cock the fastest.
It is SO incredibly tiring.

you heard the story? c: >>1011565
i have been listening to some on youtube, and i sometimes think, "oh, that's a good point" until i think myself, and i think "no, that's not a good point" >>1011609
I know complaining about this is probably rich coming from me, considering I make media sketch reviews on YouTube too, but at least I try to speak from a standpoint of either "wanting to show people something they might not have heard of" or "speaking to those that are fans too".
There are a few things I talk about that I genuinely think are terrible, but I try to make it a point to make it very clear that "that's just me" and nobody should take my word as any kind of official stamp.
Which, goddamn do I wish more people would do something similar. Reading everyone scream at eachother over ever fandom every time I open any app feels like working at a daycare where every kid crapped themselves at the same time.

...i've been listening to some of the music again, and watching it a bit.
my favorite character is Pearl, but i've always felt connected to Lapis, and now, also Spinel.
all three have something in common... being forsaken, used, and hurt. my whole life, i have felt like a broken toy. ...at times, it made me feel bitter, and sad. now, it just makes me feel... a little empty, where something else should be. i feel like i fill the hole with so many things... ponies, all of you, stuffed animals, endless work... i'm not sure what i'm even saying.
...i'm tired. it's late. i'm thinking too much, as i sometimes can do. the less i think, the happier i will be.

And then I got done with the main series.
Ah, so Movie and Future is next then?
that's all good stuff so far
Movie for sure
Future, I think, is the follow up series recently started.
I suppose I can't binge that yes.

Makes so much sense that of all the gems you'd relate most with Pearl.

aw, why do you say that? Which gem do you relate to most?
Eight episodes are out for now, two more in a few days. You can binge those, but there's no word on when the rest comes out yet

If what I read is correct, Future is not intended to really be a new series on its own.
Completing another series always reminds me of that dilemma of wanting more of the characters and the stories and knowing the story is more or less told and if you drag on a series too long it gets stale and starts to insult itself.>>1012251
Well, it's scheduled for about
Yes and no. It's a sequel series.
It IS a direct follow up, but it is categorized as a new series and NOT as Steven Universe season 6 in production.
SU:Future is more or less meant to be the season you otherwise never see in cartoons - the "what happens right after the primary conflict is over, and how does everyone adjust TO the primary conflict being over" period.
So far I've enjoyed it greatly.

I put the kids to bed and I'm at the Greg/Steven
Well, I'm curious.
It did serve to tie up loose ends from the original series.
I dunno what I would want from it. I think the original series is a lot about Steven as a kid coming to terms with his abilities and the gems with their issues and the war against the Homeworld.
That is, more or less, supposed to be solved by the end of the series.
Future is supposed to have Steven more grown up and aware of his powers and more or less at peace with Homeworld
It is not unheard of that new conflict gets created this way, now that the main threat has been neutralised.

Ya know what?
This was a movie that does heavily rely on people having watched the cartoon series.
It might be that I have binged all within a handful of days, but it really connected super well.

The Steven tag episode packs a punch
You watched the show within a few days.
Imagine having followed it for years and seeing that episode, and suddenly realizing just how long ago it was that Steven was a kid constantly trying to get their Attention more, and they all mom'ed it up more around him.
That really was a delight for me at least. And of course with a fine moral by the end.

How old is Steven supposed to be in the Future series again?
I suppose the timelapse hasn't been that great.
In the original series he's 14 years old. His naivety and interest in all those childish games has been a defining trait for him.
Now he's grown a bit up and this episode really contrasts that. No more time for being a kid. All serious Steven now.
In that sense, it's a really touching episode.
Somewhere between 16-17.
Steven had two birthday episodes in the main series, and the second one explicitly calls him 14, but there is no clear indication of how long passed between then and the finale. But the movie specifically says "Two years" since the Season 5 finale, and supposedly a little bit of time has passed between the movie and Future since Little Homeworld was under construction in the movie.
And I think yes and no. The playful Steven is still in there somewhere (or Rainbow QUartz 2.0 wouldn't be the person he is), but he has given himself a lot of responsibilities on top of just naturally growing up. I don't think the issue is JUST that he "has no time for kids' stuff" - it's also that the Gems, despite all they have been through,s till have a limited grasp of the concept of aging.
He's overworking himself all while the lot of them spend the majority of the episode treating him like he was 12 or younger again, which naturally annoys him. But it's only once he actually "joins in" on the game and allows himself to take that snow day off with them that they talk out the conflict and solve it.
So I think it's more an episode about finding that balance between discovering your new you without losing or forgetting who you were. Which, you know, is a bit of a struggle we all go thrugh in young adulthood. And hell, a good chunk into adulthood.

One of her core character traits is repression/denial, which is something I am sure you are very familiar with.
I don't actually find any of the gems very relatable, but Peridot is my favorite and Spinel definitely could use some love.

It's not meant to be a cheap jab, actually.
I know Moony well enough to know the kind of circumstances he put himself into or was put into by factors beyond his control.
Repression/denial is something I constantly worried about him for years, and from what I can tell, it hasn't really gotten better for him in that regard all that much.
Hell, I am a super repressed dipshit cunt deep in self-denial and plethora of other emotional and psychological issues.
I like self-depreciating ribs and partake in it regularly. There's a very good reason I am posting as Angel Dust, after all.
