    When i look at Steven Universe, it's a very bizarre drug-like show, it's like The Problem Solverz mixed with Jojo's Bizarre Adventure and/or Gurren Lagin, it just looks mind-corrupting and i don't know if i should be watching it. Should i or not?

    I watch it often. It is very interesting, the storyline is interesting as well, it is not "a drug-like show".
    Watching is is ok. My family and I watch it all the time.

    It depends on whether or not you're into kids' cartoons, plenty of people are. The only way to tell would be to watch an episode and see how you like it.

    I have no idea why this cringe-worthy show is so popular. There must be hundreds of exceptionally higher-quality shows anyone could be watching. But hey, that's just my two cents.

    I am addicted to this show. The story is amazing, the art is so good, and I love the music. I have watched every episode 3 times. I definetly think you should watch it. Also, what you said it looked like was hilarious af:rofl2:

    I've been watching since it aired and loved it. Can't say you'll have the same experience but I'd give some of it's earlier and later episodes a watch and see if it's anything you like. If not don't worry about. :P

    ^This is pretty much how I see it. From what I've heard most of the pros just sound like its trying to copy anime so I'd recommend watching something else instead. If you want to watch it its your call but I can't say I really see the appeal.

    its created by Rebecka Sugar (one of the original storyboarders of Adventure Time) and reflects that very well . . . from the music to the art scheme and nearly everything in between . . . not sure why anyone would even attempt to compare Steven universe to anime except for the goal of getting someone who is stuck in anime-land (you know the type who say only Japanese make good animation) to watch a western cartoon

    I haven't watched too much of it, but I've watched a bit.

    I'd say go for it if you aren't overly picky with TV shows like some here (its so cringeworthy there are so many better shows and they totally aren't all anime!!! or ugh its so dumb 90s shows actually made sense). Watch the first few episodes first, and if you like it, keep watching. If not, don't keep watching and try something else

    I've heard alot of people compare it to anime for some reason. Doesn't make too much since,but it mainly seems to be from people who like steven universe trying to get people who like anime to watch it and people who like anime trying to get people who like steven universe to watch anime. In general, its probably the cancerous fans trying to convert eachother.

    Jesus, I was just giving my opinion. And I didn't even mention anime. I'm not overly-picky with TV shows, I just voiced my negative opinion of it. Fucking deal with it.

    Somwhere you can never find.
    it depends on your interest on western cartoons, and to know if you actually like it you need to see the first season because the show starts a bit slow and the plot starts after the first season. If you enjoy shows like adventure time, gravity falls, regular show you will probably enjoy it.

    I'm sorry, but I genuinely dislike this show. At least I'm not sitting here bashing it; I just voiced my opinion and left.
