It's fanbase is a huge contributor for my dislike to Steven Universe, yes, I won't deny that.
But putting the fanbase aside, the show itself is INCREDIBLY boring. One of my closest friends LOVES this show, she was the reason I even gave it a chance, (mostly because she was putting the show on without my consent and I was forced to sit through like 28 episode or something?).
But I wanted to give it a chance.
The reason I avoided the show in the first place, was because of it's God Awful design, looking at the characters is a similar experience of having an eyelash stuck in your eye, that won't come out and now your stuck with a sore eye.
Already from episode one, I could tell I hated Steven, Not only did I hate his failed abortion of design, but dear satan, his personality makes me want to commit child abuse. Please someone slap, this child. I've never hated a main character so much.
Don't have much to say about the gems. I was just low key insulted they portrayed amethyst as a fat ugly midget, the crystal deserves better.
I also had a hard time staying focused, my mind always started to wander off during the episode, it bored me to tears.
I heard the show got better over time, but I ain't giving it a second chance, not sitting through more episodes.
