They Completely Ruined Steven Universe

This finale hurt me, and now that Steven Universe: The Movie is out I feel comfortable saying they ruined this show.

  • NOTE: comment made before completing the video but i hated "Change your mind" simply because they just kinda rushed it. "OH FUCK GOTTA SHOW FUSIONS GO" They tied things up poorly and by the end you were in a tossup and everyone is friendly now. Congrats...I guess.

  • Maybe we would have gotten more character development for the Diamonds if there were more than six episodes a season that actually propelled the plot along and the rest wasnt bullshit filler.

  • Wasn't it a thing that they were going to cancel the show? At least, the shitty wrap up made it seem like they didn't have time to finish the show properly. I completely agree with this video. I am especially mad at how they wasted the potential of doing the remaining fusions right. And of course, White Diamond providing no pay off hurt a lot. Only thing I can tell myself is they thought the show was gonna end for good and had no choice. But then... they kind of locked themselves in. Might as well end it for good here. Can't really come back from this.

  • Fusion usually is a choice, but between Jasper and the corrupted gem she fused it forcefully in Earthlings. So fusing mostly is a conscious and mutual choice yes. But if Jasper was strong enough to force a gem whose mind and body is broken into fusion, Steven definitely could pull his closest friends out of basically a coma through fusing.

  • to ruin something it has to be good in the first place

  • And forgot to mention, they were only "sad" when pink diamond died, but until then, they couldnt care less, it was about perfection, about colonizing planets to propogate their species, about genocide, war, dictatorship, stuff rebecca sugar is ill fitted talking about, but she tries anyway, and fucks up royally constantly, look its a show featuring a concept not seen before, but that does not mean its a great show, yeah there's made of love, but the rest of it? Its awful! Sigh, sorry, but like we said, we tried to like this show, but we just cant..sigh 😑

  • White diamond was defeated by a fucking comeback, cant get much lamer than that 😑 oh yeah, its rebecca sugar..yeah, she'll fuck things up some more somehow, also, pink diamond fabricated a rebellion to cover her ass and to be able to run away from homeworld and the other diamond's abuse, but she was still no better than them with spinel, pearl being her own gem? Thats a laugh, she was still serving pink diamond as rose quartz, pink diamond just wanted earth left alone after seeing what a colony was, but only to be lazy there and see more humans that fascinated her, the diamonds kept the human zoo so they could dispose of the earth, which had bad memories associated with pink diamond, whats more annoying is how each time the earth faces destruction, the person or people doing it were "just sad" which in pink diamonds case, sure, but it gets latched to the wrong people, compassion is a case by case basis, so dont go calling us sadistic or hating on all compassion, thats not our point, our point is, that ramping up with "more epic" seems to be a detriment for rebecca sugar as a writer, things come in, only to be forgotten later, like the human zoo, or amethyst being a sulk, we could go on, but we gave up on the show after pink jesus, oh we mean steven (not), defeated white diamond with a goddamned comeback, effing lame, and fusion is just an "ooh shiny" factor, tried to like this show, really we did, but just cant, sorry, glad its on its final season so people can collectively forget this show exists, we do not like steven universe, aside from its terrible messages, its boring and has cringe worthy dialogue, lily orchard explained it better in her two hour video, but yeah..this show is lame, but thats us, meh..its clear that sugar has an aversion to fighting, not just violence, which makes those brief moments boring, we all know that it wont last and that the "villain" will just end up being sad and redeemed, pathetic and dull, taking one moral concept and forcing it to apply to every situation and "bad guy" is dull and wears thin after a while, good lord, heck sugar says spinel is "the first character to want to cause harm, a first for the show" 😑 this show is a disaster, space nazis get taken down by comebacks, white diamond especially out of all others, and...ugh.."talking about your feelings" effing seems to solve all dangers or so called "villains" behavior, look, we dont mind being open with emotions, just saying that in the show, its awful, considering the threat is the anihillation of earth for fuck sake! Wtf!

  • I think that the problem with steven universe lies solely on one thing, it's to my knowledge that everyone who has a gripe with the show, doesn't dislike the show itself but rather the logic behind how things are handled... and for every argument that someone makes about that, there's a reason why there's always, and yes I mean always, a counter intuitive argument to those claims. You see steven universe is a show, there isn't meant to be a logical stand around why things turn out the way they do, in fact the MAIN purpose of the show is to teach several lessons, things like being accepting of others, learning to appreciate who you are, the show touches on subjects other cartoons and anime don't dare explore... and THAT'S what the show is about... I'm not saying you're wrong for you're opinion, I'm saying the opinion will ALWAYS meet an argument that opposes it due to that reason. If you look at everything from a logical standpoint, you end up losing sight of the true purpose, that's just how it is

  • People should remember that redemption is being in good graces with people. It is having the chance to start over from rock bottom. Level zero basically. People should go from hating you to being tolerant or indifferent. That is only possible if your crimes weren't too heinous for people to forgive. Diamonds have cross that point a long time ago. The logical outcome of this conflict is either life imprisonment or death.

I’ll agree that the character development in change your mind was rushed, but they had a year to develop more, it just isn’t shown.

I want to tolerate it because I binge watched the show, fell in love with it, got too deep, and now I just want to see more of this wonderful world they created. The second half of season 5 seems extremely rushed in comparison to the rest of the show, but there's no changing that. All I can do now is see how my feelings settle as I rewatch the show and wait to see how Steven Universe: Future will turn out.

  • i love Steven universe and i kida liked the movie for what it was and not for what it should have been, witch was off to me was well. To me it looks like they tried to overextend the story has much as possible and in the end had little room to do everything has they wanted, knowing somehow that it was the end of it,. But then they got the chance to make a movie where there was no more villains. the movie itself looks like an end, looking back on the evolution of them instead of a new treat has they use to, i guess. And now, i guess, they succeeded in having another season, where they now don't know what to do with it. What pains me is how wall that got rushed and didn't had the opportunity to make the new season in the first place, giving room for more stuff but i guess that's how things work... regular show got cancelled cuz the business man didn't care for it, but gave praise to the garbage that uncle grampa is ..... cartoons use to be good and expensive. now they try to be cheap and that's better for business and agendas i guess....

  • I agree completely with a lot of your points, that lack of actual time and proper pacing for the characters to come towards certain decisions is absurd. These scenes are straight out of badly written Shonen plots where the main protagonist just uses talk no jutsu to defeat the enemy in the most out of character and in climatic way possible, ruining all the development that the antagonist had established throughout the plot. There is no balance of the antagonists internal motives clashing with the protagonists. Steven just states his point and all the Diamonds just listen to him, completely dropping all their values and what they've always believed, which is awful way to write redemption arcs for antagonists that were hyped up for this long. I really hope the 6th Season really improves in terms of believable character development because I was really underwhelmed by the Season 6 finale.

  • While I think the Diamond redemption fit the theme of "mental shattering by pointing out and exposing their critical flaw" I def do agree that it could have been handled MUCH better than it did. -Writers should have made the "Strong, but brittle" analogy a bit better by showing the Diamonds becoming offended greatly when flaws are slightly exposed more often. This could have been done though Steven, and even Steven him self realizing that he also has a major, critical flaw just like the Diamonds. This can also go into the "Nobody is perfect" blow that is dealt to White in the final moments. -White needed more time on screen. There's deff more that could have been done to hype her up. Despite all this, I think the team did all they could to put White in as best as they could. There was prob limitations on CN side that we don't know as the fans, and maybe the team knows that more could have been done to make the "4 Episode Finale" better.

    • RedCornix thank you for respecting my opinion where certain Steven universe fans would have called me an idiot for not hating the episode.

      Tyrese FinneyTyrese Finney5 วันที่ผ่านมา
    • ​@Tyrese Finney No problem. I'm aware the example was ridiculous and I should have made my intentions more clear. That being said I stand by my conclusion. This ending was more poorly received than any other part of the series so far as I'm aware, and definitely wasn't received as well as most of the other climaxes in the series. If they were trying to give the fans a satisfying ending, by the measure of the responses to it, they have failed. A disproportionate number of people didn't like it. This would be incompetence, by being unable to do what they were attempting to do. If they went into this with any other goal that would mean they were unconcerned with what a majority of fans enjoyed about it in the first place. That would be the "not caring." If you see it another way that's perfectly fine, my last line was a bit flippant and distracts from the original point. So I'll concede that I don't know the minds of the creators of this show or what they were thinking and that my guesses about their intentions are just that.

      RedCornixRedCornix5 วันที่ผ่านมา
    • RedCornix my apologies for missing the part where you said it was hyperbolic but I would have to kindly disagree with calling them incompetent or say they don’t care because of an ending that you called debatable.

      Tyrese FinneyTyrese Finney5 วันที่ผ่านมา
    • ​@Tyrese Finney First off, I pointed out that it was hyperbolic. The point isn't to make a bad episode seem like murder, it's to point out that one bad thing can taint an otherwise good thing. Second, it was the finale of the main conflict of the series. Anything new has to start from scratch with everyone remembering how dogshit this finale was. I'm not going to get invested in new stakes when the old ones were so poorly handled. Also being bad isn't the problem, being bad in a specific way is. If Ironman 2's ending had a magical fairy grant Tony Stark the ability to warp reality as he pleased even overriding the infinity stones that would screw the Iron Man movies and Endgame. Steven Universe's core engagements are built around character growth and resolving conflicts. Change Your Mind shows they don't care, or are incompetent.

  • If you spend 5 seasons making a character bad, 20 minutes aren't enough to redeem them. That's why Lapis and Peridot are great redeemed characters, because it took actual time (about a season for each of them). And they weren't even the MAIN villan of the season. Jasper hasn't even been redeemed yet! Why should we redeem the Diamonds in less than a hour????

I still remember the good times, that's what memories are for

  • I disagree to your opinions on change-you-mind, On blue's personality, and yellow's change. She was not unhappy with the EMPIRE, she was unhappy with white. They were Terrified. They aren't good people, but white was going too far for even them. As for the problem of White's "Redemption" was good UP UNTIL The way white broke down. She should've held onto her ideals, and fled or Forced everyone out. Taking the Diamonds to try to FIX this situation, only to find the empire STILL needing white. Not literally, but because it'd be causing a schism. White Diamond's "Redemption" should've been an arc, and not a redemption, but white diamond being forced to surrender. Not nessecarily a good person, but still tolerable. It doesn't help that White Diamond has only been shown 1 power, Despite being the paragon, and while the power is godly and terrifying, she has NO right to have ONLY done that one thing.

    • @Jay Exci It did take more than 3 minutes! Though honestly what is the "central conflict? I mean, I'd say it's Steven trying to live up to/make up for his mother, that took the entire series to resolve. Ultimately he learned to be himself and that he was himself. Everything else is hundreds of side conflicts even the Gem business which was ultimately due to his mother not being able to stand up to her family and show them how wrong they were, Pink choosing to abandon them and fight a pointless and costly war that at best delayed the inevitable.
