Can we have a thread about this, +/co/?

Vanilla /co/ has already begun a civil war over it, as per usual with new cartoons. Personally I like it, the color tones are very relaxing, but I think it needs a few more episodes to really shine.

>> No. 218560
Okay I was a little curious about this seeing as I was not a big fan of the redesigns of the gems but surprisingly enough I really liked the pilot.

It wasn't perfect and at times it did seem kinda rushed but I like it. And I like Steven because he actually talks and behaves like a little kid! Finally someone in the animation world got it right, I can't tell you how sick I was of the generic "2 kool for skool" rebel boy that I see so much in kid's cartoons. It's nice to see a kid character who is just that a kid.

Also I love the characterization of the gems Pearl is the loving mother, Garnet is the cool aunt and Amethyst is the sister.

Know I'm gonna get some flack for this but this show reminded me a lot of Miyazaki's movies. The style, the character designs, the writing and the overall structure of the story is really well done not to mention the animation was beautiful I mean wow just wow......

I like this show a lot and I will be watching to see where they go from here.
>> No. 218561

I was afraid from the posters and promo material that Steven was going to be a lot older - like a Jonah Hill-type loser manchild. It was nice that they made him an actual child to match his immaturity and naivety.

In response to all of the requests for more episodes centering on the other Crystal Gems: while I don't think that Steven is fit to be a lead character (he's adorkable as a little brother type, but I don't think he's strong or dynamic enough a character to carry a series on his own; it's like what MLP would be like if Spike were the star), I don't think shifting the focus on the other 3 gems would be that much of an improvement. Given that they seem to be planet-saving on a nearly 24/7 basis with little to no down time (I'm basing this on how they're usually away or on some kind of mission in nearly every scene of every episode so far), stories focusing on them would be little more than a rehash of The Powerpuff Girls, only with magical adults.

the main character should be someone the target audience can relate to, i.e. also a kid. if you think "this show isn't made with me in mind, but it would be better if it was, because i like it when stuff panders to me" then you should just stop fucking watching it. it's not for you, and your criticism is irrelevant.

Steven is far from being that, but you're right. What the character is is far less important than who they are to an audience.
>> No. 220153
Though that is an interesting thought. Trend seemed to start in the '90s of having actual Kid characters be the leads in kids shows instead of just some sidekick and then it went mid-late '90s into '00s expanding into the medium a bit with shows that went more into the life of older kids and their actual emotions. Shame Animation has had a setback in the last few years and we've only got a deluge of Live Action Sitcom and Junk. But Steven Universe and even Adventure Time seem to be bringing some of those issues back even if its not as direct as it was a few years back they still bring that connection and can have an positive impact on development.

So much this. Shows used to be about grown up superheroes and stuff, then at one point they all started having "relatable" kids, then eentually they were all focused on high schoolers. I was glad to see some more recent stuff running from that formula again.

Wait, really? I know I hated the little bastard, and his dubbing didn't help. You sure they asked the kids when checking his popularity?

Are you ever not upset? People are allowed to critique and discuss this show. The "WELL WHY DON'T YOU MAKE SOMETHING BETTER" argument is lazy at best and irrelevant at worst.

Anyways. I'm pretty ambivalent about the show right now, but what's pretty strange is how inconsistent the writing and animation is. One ep it'll be great and the next it'll be almost embarrassingly bad. Hopefully they'll hit their stride soon
>> No. 220190
The animation is perfectly consistent, you're thinking of the story boarding. And going off model in the boarding is encouraged since it gives every boarder their own personal flair.

And the writing feels fine to me, I don't know what you're getting at?

>> No. 220196
No, the animation is absolutely not consistent. The pilot had incredible animation and the most recent ep was also high up there. That episode with Steven and his cheeseburger backpack (forgot the name, sorry) was just very difficult to watch. Quality had gone way down in both writing and animation style.

Again, not a killing stroke, but hopefully they end up reaching a happy medium between great-but-probably-expensive and awful-but-cheap

That's pretty cool.


While I actually like the show, I have to agree with >>220196 here. Like, it was bad enough the Pilot designs were way better, but the animation in the first few shorts was just so below the quality I was expecting, based on the Pilot, that the combination of the two made me want to not bother. Don't get me wrong, I actually like the writing, but until recently (I think maybe Frybo/Catfingers), the animation wasn't up to par.

It was probably the team getting used to the budget and trying to make it work across the episodes.

Story boarding, animation, who the hell cares. The. Quality. Of. The. Show. Is. Inconsistent.

The pilot was incredible. Since then the show has swung from "was this made by blind children" to "hot dang this is is impressive. Arguing about definitions and ignoring the fact that the overall episode quality differs dramatically won't help anything.

Again, the boarding inconsistencies are intentional. It's give every boarder their own personal flair to an episode. Ian Jones Quartey story boarded Cheeseburger Backpack and his style shows up very strongly during the episode.
Flapjack did it.
Regular show does it.
Adventure time does it and now Steven Universe does it.
And now that we've cleared up the fact that you don't know the difference between the two, how exactly is that animation itself inconsistent?
>> No. 220209
That's not criticizing the show, it's lamenting the fate of animation due to imaginary problems.

Though now the conversation has actually moved towards actual discussion of the show so it's a moot point.
>> No. 220212
"Why don't you make something better" is in response to "Why doesn't this show cater to me specifically? It would be better if it was completely different." Which is an incredibly stupid thing to ask in the first place.

Steven is a pretty believable preteen just starting to grow into his powers. That's what this show is about: his coming-of-age story. He's designed so that the target audience can look at him and see someone they might want as a friend, and/or someone they kinda want to be. Older viewers might see him as a little brother figure. He's somebody to cheer for. If you don't like kids, then whatever, but I don't understand why you're watching a kid's show about kids if you hate them.

The Scrappy Doo comparison fails for a ton of reasons. One, Scooby Doo is a completely different type of show: the characters are cardboard cutouts each with a set of static personality traits who repeat the same actions every episode and never develop, and that's because the point of the show is the mystery itself, not the people solving it. We aren't really supposed to give a shit about them or their problems (or at least, not until the newest Scooby Doo show anyway). Two, Scrappy was trash because he was a supporting character who contributed nothing whatsoever to the group and picked fights he obviously couldn't win, it had very little to do with his age and everything to do with his obnoxious personality. Scrappy Doo wasn't even added because he was a child character they thought children would relate to, he was added to shake up the formula viewers had gotten fucking bored of, and regardless of whether you personally hated him, Scrappy and the other changes they made to the show during that time saved it from cancellation.

Three, the "trend" of lead characters being roughly the same age as the target audience is hardly a new thing. Are you fucking kidding me. Did you read any books at all as a kid? Virtually all YA novels star preteens or mid-teens. Media for small children stars other small children. Sometimes they are a bit older than the audience so they can look up to them or allow them to fantasize that when they get to be that age they might get a letter from Hogwarts too. And in character-driven stories, they generally want to see the protags to go through the same sort of stuff they're going through (even if it's in a magical setting).
>> No. 220216
The boarding inconsistencies include the speaking animation in the cheeseburger episode not match up with the words? Or how the walking animation looks like they're gliding along the floor? Or strange cuts and still frames that weren't in any other episode?

The point is, some episodes look cheap and shoddy while others don't.
>> No. 220217
(Almost) everyone hated shows where there were cool adults doing cool things and random kids were shoved in for no good reason.

In Transformers the starting point was "robots fighting" and eventually they added the damn kids to the formula. In Scooby Doo the starting point was "gang solving mysteries (with a talking dog)" and eventually they added the damn kid to the formula.

In Steven Universe the entire POINT of the show is "kid inherited kickass powers he can't understand or control, slowly figures them out, and learns about the world his deceased(ish) and seriously cool mom was a part of".

People can't just like a show, they have to go into all the myriad ways it makes their dick hard.

Different standards for action and comedy series. Despite a lot of adventure and action elements, Steven Universe seems to be classed as a comedy by the execs, and CN doesn't seem to feel that comedy series need toy lines to be viable. They're happy to make toys if they think it'll turn a profit, but it's only the action series that they don't view as more than glorified toy commercials.

Honestly I think my main complaint about this show is that there's no coherent storyline and there's a new big-ish reveal each episode. There doesn't feel like there's any tension or "oooh I wonder what x means/is like". Everything's just handed to us so it feels cheap.

>> No. 223719
I can see that, and understand why that is hard for some to roll with. I catch it as while these gems are still fighting the good fight and all they are also the last of their kind and without an actual leader they don't really work at their peak ability. Slice of Life Super Adventure stuff, yea we only get snippets so far that bad shit went down and the gems were hunted into near extinction but not much more.
>> No. 223720
I'm actually pretty curious about the lion still. It's almost certainly a gem creature, but we didn't see its gem, and with the color of it I expect it had an affinity for Steven already. I expect it either has a similar gem to Steven's, and also on its bellybutton (which I think we haven't seen), or it lacks a gem is a child creature of Steven's gem, kind of like the smaller centipede and starfish monsters are of their parent monsters, that was by Rose some time in the past.
