Steven Universe

  1. Steven Universe Recap: “Reformed”

    Monster hunt! Monster hunt!

    This week feels like the ending of a trilogy of sorts, following up on fellow Amethyst exploration episodes “On the Run” and “Maximum Capacity” and ending our unofficial power-up sequence for our main Gems (which I can only hope means new ones will be joining the team. I refuse to give up hope – and I’m not convinced that the slinker isn’t Peridot, either).

  2. Steven Universe Recap: “Love Letters”

    Submitted for your approval, a letter. Its recipient, alien. Its contents, overwritten. Its packaging, flawless. You are now entering: The Drama Zone.

  3. The Mary Sue Exclusive Preview And Interview: BOOM! Studios’ Steven Universe: Greg Universe Special #1

    Steven Universe has been getting waves of praise lately, mostly for its portrayal of diversity in its female characters - and it's well-deserved praise, every bit. But SU doesn’t leave its male characters in the shallows either. Case in point: Greg Universe, former rock star, current van-dwelling car wash owner, and great dad.

  4. Steven Universe Recap: “Shirt Club”

    In which this whole “airing episodes out of order” thing finally feels noticeable.

    Alright, turns out we had one more episode pushed back by the Steven Bomb (I think, according to Matt Burnett’s post – Google lists the next two episodes as being waylaid season 1 episodes as well, but let’s take that with a grain of salt). And while “Open Book” and “Story for Steven” straddled a line of “would’ve flowed really well here but work well as stand-alones,” today’s episode is pretty substantively hurt by where it ended up.

  5. Important Video Examines How Steven Universe Portrays An “Unconventional” Family

    Humans find such fascinating ways to waste their time.

    There's no single correct definition for what constitutes a "family" - so it kind of blows that we typically only see one, "nuclear" version of it in the media. But Steven Universe gives us a cartoon where the main character has a very different family set-up - and treats it like it's completely normal and awesome. Because it is. Way to go, guys.

  6. Steven Universe Recap: “Say Uncle”

    Let’s just collectively agree to call this one “The Doomsday That Wasn’t.”

    Some background information on your author in relation to today’s crossover: prior to this week, my experience with Uncle Grandpa was more or less limited to “those two minute intervals when you haven’t been able to successfully find the remote or stop the autoplay.”

  7. Steven Universe Recap: “Joy Ride”

    For all your aliens-taking-selfies needs; ominous foreshadowing included free of charge.

    It would seem that season 2 will be dividing its time between quirky character antics, Gem history and warfare, and emotional baggage so heavy our lungs will be collectively crushed if we’re not prepared.

  17. Bee and Puppycat, Steven Universe Both Get More Episodes

    Good News Everyone!

    Bee and Puppycat is in the final hours of its Kickstarter drive, but that hasn't stopped the show from blowing through another stretch goal in about a day. Creator Natasha Allegri thanked fans with this preview of some of the new characters we can expect to see on the nine-episode show (as well as those introduced in the original short). And speaking of deconstructions of magical girl anime created and repackaged for a Western action cartoon audience by women who grew up on both, Steven Universe, Cartoon Network's strongest premiere of 2013, has had its first season expanded by thirteen episodes, bringing it to 26. Now that's a perfect porkchop.

  18. Let This Fan Art Remind You That Steven Universe Premieres Tonight

    And So It Begins

    Asiey Barbie's Garnet is rocking my socks off, but maybe it's just because Garnet is already my favorite character in Steven Universe and I've only seen two episodes of it. You can watch both of those episodes when the show premieres tonight on Cartoon Network! And speaking of shows created by Western female animators who grew up on Eastern Magical Girl stories and are now reinterpreting, repackaging, and reimagining those tropes for a the Western audience for action cartoons, this is your reminder that you've only got ten days to pledge for the Bee and Puppycat Kickstarter!

  20. Get Ready to Love Every Character in Steven Universe by the End of This Clip

    And So It Begins

    The Steven of Rebecca Sugar's Steven Universe is based on her own brother Steven, who, incidentally, is now an adult with a beard who works on backgrounds for the show. In that light, it's easy to see the older members of the Crystal Gems as different incarnations of older sisterhood: the Kind Guardian, the Rough Playmate, and the Inscrutably Cool Older Sibling. That said, they are indisputably all awesome. AlthoughGarnetisobviouslythebest. Previously in Steven Universe
