The show is amazing, and now there are Funko Pop figures. Hopefully if they sell well we can get some fusions

I was late into the game on watch it, and I caught up literally the week before the last episode so far aired, then the show went on winter hiatus. That was a harsh transition, I can tell you... It is so well written. Like some of the best cartoons, it's there for kids, and it does teach valuable lessons without seeming preachy most of the time. But there is a lot of subtext and story weaving that really appeals to older audiences as well.

It's adorable, I love the art and stories, and the theme song was memorized like 3 episodes in. I will also echo that Garnet is the best. The episode where Steven comes up with a story about her day was very amusing and adorable, but also very real, because I can totally see a young boy come up with that story about someone he idolizes.

Basically Steven Universe just makes me smile and feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Welcome to the first Steven Bomb of the new year!!!

Last nights episode was a doozy, showing how Ruby and Sapphire first met and fused. Haven't watched tonight's episode yet because of work.

And it really does explain a lot about fusion and how it's looked on in Gem society. It certainly explains why Peridot is so uncomfortable around Garnet. And puts Jaspers forced fusion with Lapis Lazuli into new light...

What symbol?

Also looks like Jasper and Peridot wear the same uniform and the yellow diamond shape could be reflecting ... well Yellow Diamond.  Could explain why the Gems wear the star as Rose had one.  Looking at Lapis she doesnt seem to have any iconography that I can tell but she does wear a boy similar to Pearl.
Title: Re: Steven Universe (edit: Spoilers)
Post by: Neko_Ali on 11 Jan 2016, 21:06
Lapis had a blue diamond on her dress, over her stomach area and split in half by her belt. It seemed that in the past, Blue Diamond was in charge of the Earth colony project. I had originally thought that maybe Rose Quartz was an overseer or something similar, who became infatuated with biological life on Earth and rebelled. But if you were to follow the color coding concept to logical conclusions then she would belong to Pink Diamond. Pink Diamond however is listed as a former member... Maybe she was the one who became disillusioned with the Diamond Authority and rebelled, with Rose Quartz and her followers following along? Time will tell I suppose.

Size seems to have an indication of rank in Gem society, with possibly one exception. Diamonds seem to be all huge, tower over everyone. Rose Quartz seemed some sort of leader, and was well taller than a human. Jaspers and other Amethyst are huge, as tall as the fusion Garnet, and hold high rank in Gem society. Pearls are servants, and while tall seem to be very thin. The same is true for Lapis Lazuli, who seemed almost conditioned to obey others, such as Jasper. Finally there are the small, servitor gems like Ruby and Peridot. They seem to be made in mass numbers, like Jaspers and Amethysts, but have no consideration in society... The lowest rung it seems. But then there is Sapphire. She's as small as Ruby, but was an aristocrat, like Rose Quartz presumably was. Just a wild theory, but I suppose it's possible that other Sapphires are not well thought of, but the one who becomes half of Garnet was a special case, due to her future sight ability. We have no real idea if that's a trait of Sapphires, or something unique to her.
Title: Re: Steven Universe (edit: Spoilers)
Post by: Neko_Ali on 12 Jan 2016, 07:04
Pretty much it on Blue Diamond. Maybe she wasn't the overseer directly, I would presume not. But in her fiefdom, or whatever the equivalent is? Or maybe she was just there to deal with the rebels. We still know very little about the Diamond Authority or the Gem Empire so I'm just guessing at things. As far as Pink Diamond... Yes, her symbol is missing, and the SU wiki has her listed as a 'former member' because of that. That is really the only information we have. But that's one of the great things about this show, they pay attention to the little details. Details which later on make perfect sense when a big point is dropped. Like looking back at the early episodes it's perfectly obvious from the start that Garnet is a fusion. The hints where there, but they were just placed, and never obvious to us because we didn't know then certain details about Gem biology. Crystology?

Possible theory? Pink Diamond rebelled against the Diamond Authority or was expelled from it for some reason. Perhaps the others thought she was to soft to be a Diamond. Pun intended. Rose Quartz was her representative on Earth, who followed in her footsteps, and so started/lead the rebellion. Blue Diamond was sent to deal with the situation but for reasons yet unknown was unable to stop the rebellion and the colony was written off until recently, when the Cluster was about due to awaken. Or perhaps because of the return of Lapis Lazuli? There is to much unknown yet.

Fusion seemed a common battle technique for lesser soldiers like the Rubies. It was something that stronger warrior gems like Jasper look down on as a trick of the weak. But the way Ruby acted in The Answer, it was something they did all the time. Fusing with Sapphire by accident shocked and surprised the court. Maybe nobody realized it could happen, Sapphire and Ruby seemed shocked at it... That it happened at all. Blue Diamond was scandalized that a lowly Ruby would dare to fuse with her Sapphire, which makes me think maybe it was known to some, but it's one of those things 'proper people' just didn't do, and certainly not publicly. Basically parallels to old (and sometimes sadly current) attitudes towards same-sex or mixed race couples. But I imagine a few members of the court were intrigued by this and later tried it out.

almost 6000 years later the idea of cross-gem fusion is known, and not as shocking as it was originally. But looked down on and reviled. It weirds Peridot out because it's something she's used to hearing and thinking of as strange, even freaky.  Jasper sees it as a sign of weakness, but is willing to use it herself to gain more power when she lost to Garnet. But they know it exists... it's just not considered proper. As far as why Jasper knew Garnet was a fusion immediately.. she already knew and expected Rose Quartz to be there. I'm sure she knew about Pearl and Garnet at the very least. It's possible Gems have an innate sense of each other as well. Jasper knew that Steven was part Rose Quartz at first glance, and thought he WAS Rose Quartz at first. Maybe Gems can just feel who is a fusion. The watchers and Steven don't know because we're all at least half human and don't understand Gem culture.

Sooooo....I have a theory...Centipeedle is a corrupted Peridot from the age of the war.

seeing for a split second it takes a humanoid shape before becoming monstrous (do to being a cracked gem)
(http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/steven-universe/images/4/4b/Centatransform.gif/revision/latest?cb=20150821173404)

The color scheme of both the gem and hair of centipeedle match that of peridot
(https://41.media.tumblr.com/994222077b87212593ad9523c530fd23/tumblr_nl5qnem6ZR1u7gok8o1_500.png)

I'm not sure if all gem shapes are suppose to be the same shape or if they have changed over time but thats the only big difference I notice.

Title: Re: Steven Universe (edit: Spoilers)
Post by: Neko_Ali on 10 Feb 2016, 12:34
It's entirely likely and logical. It's a known fact that the gem monsters that they fought early in the show were because of cracked gems from the war, and then later Cluster experiments. So The centipeedle could easily be a Peridot, or any other greenish gem. Peridots seem to be a technician caste, so it would be logical a bunch of them were on Earth to supervise/operate the Nursery. Gems of the same type do seem to share at least the same general body types. The other Pearl we've seen look a lot like the Gem's Pearl. All of the Ruby bodyguards looked nearly identical to one another. Amethyst is a poor example to look at though, because she's not the way Amethysts are 'supposed' to look like, and changes herself more  than the others, both in shape shifting, and when forming a new body after being poofed.

Title: Re: Steven Universe (edit: Spoilers)
Post by: Neko_Ali on 11 Feb 2016, 18:02
As far as I know, it's never been directly stated, but heavily implied in episode that the corrupted gems are what's left of gems cracked in the war. It has been I think stated that the broken gems that make up cluster monsters are, by Peridot. However a lot of evidence has been shown to indicate that to be true. The centipedle mother taking human shape briefly on being released. Lapis having been bound into the mirror because of her cracked gem. The corrupted gems all attacking the Crystal Gems, poofing like gems when damaged enough, and being able to reform after being un-bubbled by someone. And after all, that's the sort of thing they love doing in the show. They'll quietly tell us stuff through imagery and suggestion that could be easily missed or glossed over way before someone comes out and says it in the show.
Title: Re: Steven Universe (edit: Spoilers)
Post by: de_la_Nae on 12 Feb 2016, 15:30
The monstrous gems are definitely gems, I'm just saying that, past Lapis, I'm not sure that it's just cracking that causes the degeneration, though we've definitely seen that the Gempire recycles people (Lapis, the shards from "Frybo", Peridot's reference to the Red Eye).

By the way, pretty sure it was Garnet who said that.

On fusion

Title: Re: Steven Universe (edit: Spoilers)
Post by: Neko_Ali on 23 Feb 2016, 08:29
On fusion and dancing: It's been said that gems dance to fuse so they synchronize themselves to each other It doesn't have to be much... Even just Ruby and Sapphire swinging each other about for a second or two is enough to activate their fusion. They are close enough though that it probably takes very little for them to synchronize with each other after thousands of years together. When the three Rubies fused though, they didn't go through that. They just formed a human pyramid and fused. It could be reasonably thought that same-gem fusion is a lot easier and doesn't require much if any synchronization. Since same-gem fusion just basically makes a bigger version of that gem.

When Jasper and Lapis fused though, they did do a little dance. So at least in the present day Homeworld Gems understand the mechanics of different gems fusing, even if it's considered unnatural. I can't really say if the first time Ruby and Sapphire fused was shocking because it was the first time it's been done and people didn't think it was possible, or shocking because while technically possible, it was through to be wrong for societal reasons.

Steven Universe returns to televisions everywhere on January 30. Five new episodes will air over a week starting at 7 PM EST, in what has been dubbed the “Stevenbomb” format.
These episodes are:
“Steven’s Dream” (Monday, Jan. 30) - A strange dream prompts Steven to search for answers.
 “Adventures in Light Distortion” (Monday, Jan. 30) - Steven and the Gems take off on a search and recovery mission.
“Gem Heist” (Tuesday, Jan. 31) - The Gems try to pull off a heist.
“The Zoo” (Wednesday, Feb. 1) - Steven visits a special zoo.
 “That Will Be All” (Thursday, Feb. 2) - Steven and the Gems make a daring escape!
After this summer’s “Steven Nuke” (a full month’s worth of weekdaily episodes) and a handful of weekly episodes that followed, it seems like Cartoon Network is getting a better handle on how to market and release this show. At the very least, the fandom is receiving more consistent information on when hiatuses are going to end.

So. I'd heard of "Steven Universe" a while ago, and a lot of people were recommending it to me. But, I didn't like the art style, and I was very reluctant to try it out.

Then I saw an episode of "Needs More Gay" (it's a YouTube show) on "Steven Universe". And I was like, holy crap I need to check this out.

I've seen the first three seasons with my wife, by now. Holy crap, I am so sorry I did not see it sooner. Gotta be one of my favourite shows by now. In many, many ways. I even love the art style, because it actually works for the show, despite my earlier misgivings.

Not much constructive or interesting to say right now, just - holy crap!

I had the same thoughts about Adventure Time when it was first coming out. I kept seeing people praising it all over the place, but the art turned me away and it just looked like a kid's show to me. The depths of a lot of the storytelling really blew me away, and they very deftly handled long running subtext. Something Steven Universe has down as well. And the art style grew on me, going from 'over simplified' to 'charming'.

I don't think I know how to use the internet anymore, since it took me several minutes to find any sort of information on what's going on with Doug & Rob Walker's VLog series on SU. Which they stopped at Alone at Sea D;

Last verifiable information I could find is that, about mid-March, they did announce that they were looking to do a catch-up batch episode, just got busy with sickness and their many projects, etc. So that's nice.

(mostly I want them to cover Bismuth. And everything else off course)

According to wikipedia, next month. It’s on dailymotion now, though. Is it wrong to watch online because I don’t wanna deal with that awful app?

Excellent ep, but I have to admit given the title, I hoped it was a return of Pearl's mystery girlfriend.

I'm actually *very* tired of this model. I'm tired of 6-10 12 minute episodes *a year*. I'm tired of 'bombs', I'm tired of 'events'.

Luckily for these assholes, the actual show-makers are good at what they do and got me interested a long time ago. But I might never follow another show like this again.
Title: Re: Steven Universe is dead forever (Lion ate him)
Post by: de_la_Nae on 07 Jul 2018, 14:13
that said, at least it's easy for me to catch up, when they finally come out.

I don't bother paying much attention, though. if it wasn't for internet people I wouldn't notice when episodes come out. I have no more patience in my life for 'get hype'.

that is, until I hear "We, are the Crystal Gems..." Then I'm back again. But I'm sad, because I fear hitting a day, before this show wraps up, when I won't be any more. Jerked around by release scheduling too many times to care any more. And I don't want that to happen to good work that comes after, from other show-makers and other creators. So I don't want this way of doing things to catch on.

So this appeared on Prime Video and I'm watching the first season when I notice that Steven's dad has tan lines corresponding to Steven's outfit. What's up with that?

Mystery tan lines remain a mystery.

It had to be pointed out to me

Also this isn't the end, only the end of this phase of the show. They've said that a whole new season is gonna start but they are very tight lipped on everything else.
