Storyline

This series is set in the fictional Beach City, where ageless alien warriors, the Crystal Gems, live in an ancient beachside temple, protecting the world from evil. They project female humanoid forms from magical gemstones that are the core of their being. The Crystal Gems are Garnet, Amethyst, Pearl and Steven, a young half-human, half-Gem boy who inherited his gemstone from his mother, the Gems' former leader Rose Quartz. As Steven tries to figure out his powers, he spends his days with his human father Greg, his friend Connie, other people in Beach City, or the other Gems, whether to help them save the world or just to hang out. He explores the abilities passed down to him by his mother, which include fusion (the ability of Gems to merge their identities and bodies to form a new and more powerful personality).

Trivia

In the episode "Cat Fingers," the Gems claim to be going to sea to fight a Living Island. This is possibly a reference to the series Adventure Time, in which the Ice King washes up on an island that is alive. See more »

Goofs

The screen door in front of the Crystal Gems' house sometimes opens in and sometimes out. This could be incorrectly regarded as a goof since the Gems don't understand Earth technology. Maybe they installed the door that way. See more »

it's fresh, different, and a little real
15 April 2014 | by frutiflutieSee all my reviews

What captured me to Steven Universe was definitely the unique art styling and amazing video game-like music. I watched the first episode not knowing what to expect, and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. It had an innocent, down to earth feeling that made me recall the happiness of my childhood and the struggles of learning my own talents. After that, I got hooked on everything, from all the characters to the grade A puns!

Each of the characters, minor and main, has their own personality that gives them life and humane attributes. If I'd imagine, I could probably see a Lars down the block, or maybe a Connie, reading in the library. Onion, by far, has to be my favorite, though, with his overall oddness and limited speech.

The drawing of the characters, as well, is so different from what there is nowadays. There are all kinds of shapes and sizes for the characters, so many different colors and designs. It's not something I usually see, and it's sort of... refreshing? Yeah! Highly recommended, with an added, "Don't knock it 'til you watch it!"
