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.

  • I'm so conflicted. I love Jay. I love SU. Jay is explaining why SU finale was bad. I know it's bad but I still have hope in the show. Fuck. Take my like. But I will continue to stay in my bubble of denial ad hope that there was some kind of reason for this choice, maybe SU Future will build on the diamonds more. Who knows.

  • Rebecca sacrificed white diamond villainess to prove pink is the true evil in here. Selfish, full of desires and never caring. But she didn't realize that using white diamond for that was a mistake

  • 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.

  • One small detail, if you think about it, the movie is at least a year after change your mind, I believe Steven is 14 or 15 in change your mind and he’s 16 in the movie. 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 didn't hate Change Your Mind, but I didn't like it either. 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.

  • To be fair the actual time for the redemption arc for the diamonds took 2 years (Steven aged 14-16), but we didn't see any of it. I think the movie was just a summary of literally everything, including the final redemption. But I swear to God if they DONT explain the redemptions in the 6th season then I'm gonna scream

  • 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 Finney3 gün önce
    • ​@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.

      RedCornixRedCornix3 gün önce
    • 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 Finney3 gün önce
    • ​@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 love Steven Universe for what it was and what it gave me. I 100% agree with your arguments and you touched on the feelings I had with this finale and movie. But that doesn't mean I should stop loving them, It doesn't even ruin it for me. The same way, I still like Game of Thrones despite those trashed two last seasons. 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.

  • Blue cared for Pink, Yellow cared for Blue, and White was embarrassed by being called out for acting childish... She acted like Pink- probably the reason why she blushed Pink instead of- grey. (But to be fair, the Diamond's aren't 100% good. They're still learning.)

  • I know I'm about to spill all of my personal crap in front of thousands of strangers just to prove a point, but fuck it. You're completely right in saying Change Your Mind does NOT show the way to change someone's mind, and I'll give an irl example. I'm a white girl with a traditional southern family, and I had a major crush (still do, tbh) on a black guy. You know where this is going, and you're probably already correct about what the outcome was. This wasn't just any guy either, he was a childhood friend. From first grade. Successful student, amazing personality, and we both knew everything there was to know about each other. We also felt the same about becoming a "thing" in high school, he asked me first. Long story short, my parents tried to let me down in the gentlest way possible, but they're absolutely stubborn. I've always loved them despite their flaws, but there is no changing their mind, no matter how you try to help them understand you. To their credit, they don't tell me my views are wrong, but they still never allowed me a *chance* at happiness with my best friend in the world, because they have such a stigma about interracial marriage. It's like a brick wall they can't knock down. If somehow this show COULD give a useful message about creating acceptance between different viewpoints, that could help so many people like me. But what you saw Steven try in this episode? It's basically what I tried. And there isn't a chance in hell it could immediately work even with the nicest of people.

  • Lol you guys know Steven's main power is super empathy right? It's not weird that Aang can use his powers to their fullest to humble the fire lord. It's not even weird in universe that One Punch Man can use his powers to devastate any opponent in one hit! Why is it weird that Steven uses his to befriend the Diamonds? Ik it isn't blatantly obvious for most of the show (ppl just seem to like Steven) but in the final confrontation with White Diamond he turns her pink! That wasn't just aesthetic, it was a manifestation of his powers of empathy!

  • Do you have any insight into how subleaders like Yellow and Blue Diamond might feel toward the main leader, White Diamond? You saw what happened to them when they confronted White Diamond. However, I do have a problem with how White Diamond decided to completely change her mind. A grand leader like her would most likely have some pride issues with being forced to change the way she does things. I know I would. Perhaps those issues will rear their ugly heads later on in the series.
