  • Steven Universe Review 3×17: Gem Hunt

    Connie’s first mission! Connie’s first mission! Seriously, I was almost as excited as Steven was for this. It’s what I’ve been waiting for since she first showed up with Rose’s sword in the updated opening, and “Gem Hunt” delivered, even if it was in an unexpected way. “Gem Hunt” is the second episode that Colin […]


  • Steven Universe Review 3×16: Greg the Babysitter

    We’ve had two previous flashback episodes to the time before Steven was born, and while “Greg the Babysitter” might not have been as romantic or emotionally tense as the others, it provided us another glimpse into the development of Greg and Rose’s relationship, and their development as people. Read our before commenting. Please do not […]


  • Steven Universe Review 3×14: Monster Reunion

    With an 11-minute episode format, the production crew of Steven Universe must get to the point of important plot episodes quickly. There’s little room for cliffhangers or needless suspense, and “Monster Reunion” is a perfect example of that. The fandom predicted from its title that “Monster Reunion” would see the return of Centipeetle, but I […]


  • Steven Universe Review 3×13: Kiki’s Pizza Delivery Service

    “Kiki’s Delivery Service” is a delightfully cheesy episode of Steven Universe that falls somewhere between Hayao Miyazaki and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. “Kiki’s Delivery Service” ticks off at least two storytelling techniques that the Crewniverse has honed to an animated science: fleshing out a previously background character Simpsons-style and creating a world-within-a-world setting that mixes human and Gem […]


  • Steven Universe 3×12 Review: “Restaurant Wars”

    Among the high-stakes interstellar adventures and the deep-seated emotional issues the main cast of Steven Universe tackle with, it can sometimes be forgotten that Steven isn’t just a Gem – he’s also a human, and a kid at that. “Restaurant Wars” is a nice break focusing on that side of Steven, and it is also […]


  • Steven Universe Press Panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2016

    Admin Angel participated in the Steven Universe press panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2016. She talked to Rebecca Sugar, Estelle (Garnet), Deedee Magno-Hall (Pearl), Michaela Dietz (Amethyst), Zach Callison (Steven), and Ian Jones-Quartey, about voice acting, writing, the fandom, and the show’s future. The whole interview is great, but here are some highlights: Rebecca Sugar clarifies that […]


  • Steven Universe Review 3×11: Beach City Drift

    Steven Universe is a show which loves avoiding outright villains. It loves creating plots where conflict is caused by circumstance as opposed to bad people, and supports the idea that goodness can be found in anyone. Yet in a single week, we’ve been reintroduced to two characters who might truly be beyond redemption, Marty in […]


  • Steven Universe 3×10 Review: The New Lars

    After the feels fest of “Mr. Greg” and the Gem-nanigans of “Too Short to Ride,” it’s nice to return to Beach City and its human residents with “The New Lars.” Continuing the pattern of the Steven’s Summer Adventure event whereby Steven seems to be settling into his powers both new and old, “The New Lars” […]


  • Steven Universe 3×8 Review: Mr. Greg

    Sometimes, emotions get too big for prose, and they simply must be sung. In Steven Universe, this is common, but it wasn’t until “Mr. Greg” that the audience was treated to a full musical episode, because the emotions that existed between Pearl and Greg about Rose Quartz were just too big for a single song. […]


  • In Too Deep Article Roundup: Leaks, Viewership, and Bobs

    The “In Too Deep” event is one week behind us, and with the air date of new episodes still a mystery, the Steven Universe fandom is falling back into the familiar pattern of discussion and theorizing to fill the hiatus void. One major concern was that the French ‘leaks’ would hurt viewership, and that a dip in […]
