TLDR

Pastel Dragon Ball Z.

What it's about

Steven, an overeager human-Crystal Gem hybrid, and the other Gems Pearl, Amethyst, and Garnet, save the world from alien threats.

The take

Steven’s earnestness in his attempts to be one of the Gems, as well as his search for his mother, are some of the most compelling story arcs you can get from this show. The nature of story arcs, however, means that the show isn’t balls to the wall crazy or fast-paced, but its emotional foundation has certainly been cared for. Everything about this show points in a starry-eyed direction. Episode to episode, Steven Universe is about self discovery and protecting your friends, but anyone who makes it through a major story or season will be forever bonded with this series.

What stands out

Steven Universe may have the best end credits theme ever.
