‘Will you help me into my Birthday Suit?’ – Steven Universe, 2013 – Present

Hello everyone! Happy Monday! It’s another swelter of a week, and we 100% need some rain or I think we’ll all melt into small puddles soon! If only British houses had air-con!
As I’ve been writing a really long dissertation, I’ve been watching stuff in the background. Today’s show is one that I’ve had on the radar for a very long time, but Season 1 has only just been put onto Netflix (I know it’s on other stuff, such as Sky, so will be catching up the rest there)! So this won’t be a review of a recent season, but just the show and characters as a whole! And only from what I’ve seen so far! Don’t worry – I am catching up!
Without further ado – here comes Steven Universe!

The Crystal Gems – Steven Universe, Cartoon Network, 2013 – Present

Steven Universe is a young boy who lives with the Crystal Gems – magical ladies (with magical powers) from a magical different planet named Pearl, Garnet and Amethyst. This all takes place in the fictional town of Beach City. Steven, a gem fusion of his mother (Rose Quartz) and his human father (Greg Universe) adventures with his friends and helps the Gems protect the world from their own kind.
Whilst this show may seem like it is for children, as with any other Cartoon Network show, it tackles hard hitting subjects (acceptance, LBGT+ rights, race alienation). Seeing the world through Steven’s eyes shows us, as the audience, that we are just as naive as he is on these kind of things. He’s walking through a world he feels he has no place being in.

Our main foursome – Steven Universe, Cartoon Network, 2013 – Present

Steven Universe is a really easy watch. Each episode is only 10-ish minutes long, which means that you can literally binge watch a load in an hour. I have gotten through quite a lot in the past couple days, because I’ve just had them on in the background.
What I like about this show is the different personalities the Gems have. Although we have seen doubles of Gems (Rubies being the most prevalent), the Crystal Gems have their own personalities away from them.
The Gem’s abilities are also really cool. For instance, Lapis being able to control the oceans, Amethyst has her whip (also her story is very sad, just saying). And that, although there are lots of pearls etc. they all have their gems in different places, giving them their own personalities.
It is also interesting to see the Gem hierarchy on HomeWorld compared to how the Crystal Gems don’t have one.
Honestly, I’m loving every minute.

I can’t tell you to watch this enough. Though it’s mind numbing, I love the cute art style and I love the story it’s trying to tell.
