Okay, so I saw this while looking for episodes of “Steven Universe” to watch…
I’m pretty sure whatever asshole wrote this is a self-proclaimed “otaku” who has the “Japan is the pinnacle of human evolution” mentality. The kind of people who don’t want to watch anything different or challenging, but just want their precious anime to continue to pander to them and not offer anything new.
In fact, some of the best animated movies and shows - big surprise - aren’t from Japan.
"Steven Universe" is one of these. In my opinion, it’s a thousand times better than a lot of anime shows - which, to be fair, a lot of anime is that pandering harem bullshit that wants to attract manchild customers. I am very much aware that there are very good anime movies and shows out there, but from what I’ve seen, compared to what other countries have put out…I’m past my anime phase, and not very impressed with what’s popular in anime nowadays.
Also, calling the Crystal Gems “ugly” is inaccurate and childish. This person was grasping at straws to make the show sound as undesirable as possible, but all it did was make this person look extremely immature. The “ugly women” are far more aesthetically interesting than the cookie cutter tits-and-ass anime girls that apparently is the only “beautiful” body type to a lot of the character designers. Again, variety is very good.
So, long-winded telling off aside, this website, Anime Flavor, should really correct this. This was just…extremely childish.
Reblogging only to spread the word, as every bit of it is true. I went to the site, and it’s true. Someone needs to change this, because Steven Universe is a beautiful show, and is far more entertaining than like 90% of currently running anime.
