    I stopped watching Steven Universe shortly after the Stronger Than You episode, and I really liked it until then. I'm not sure I should bother picking up the series again, as it seems to have devolved into extreme tumblr shit. Then again, it always was tumblr shit.

    I wonder how Adventure Time is these days . . .

    if it makes you feel better some people are jumping to the conclusion that they're making Pearl (a Lesbian) fall in love with Greg(a man) because of the Utena parody scene

    his middle name is Quartz too if that makes his name sound any more weird to you

    Makes me feel better? I'm not offended by material that strays from heteronormativity. Maybe I'm being irrational, but it just seems the show's not afraid to show its tumblr sensibilities anymore. Before, it was more of an undertone than overtone, or at least that's how I saw it.

    It's not the first time they've lifted a scene from an anime, or even specifically Utena:

    Steven Universe is a great show.

    They oughtta lift from SAO and call the next special "Steven Quartz Universe: Extra Edition," or "SQUEE" for short!

    This week Toonami returns to normal, but that isn't such a bad thing, right? Beginning at Midnight, it's premieres of DBZ Kai, JoJo, Gundam IBO, Hunter x Hunter, Shippuden, and One Piece, then Saitama comes at 3 to punch out the lights! Only @Toonami!

    yeah, that sequence was copied from Utena's second duel with Miki Kaoru....the duel in the season where the Arena was full of "Car Stone-henges"
