When i look at cartoons, i am almost always dissapointed.
This includes a good chunk of anime by the by.
Now bear in mind that by "dissapointed" i don't mean that the show is bad. I just mean that the shows are rarely everything i want them to be. This also varies by what i'm looking for when i see that show. Am i looking for something more serious? Am i looking for something that assumes have some minuscule amount of intelligence? Am i looking for something lighthearted? Am i looking for something my little sister and i can watch together?
Recently, i was looking for something in the latter category. Something my little sister could watch together.
To that end i was dissapointed time and again by the shows on cartoon network.....
Until Steven Universe.
When I was looking around, i was looking for something akin to Batman the animated series from way back in the 90's. Which meant it had to accomplish the following things:
Be light enough that my little sister could lose herself in a little bit of whimsy.
Be deep enough that my little sister would become curious and ask me some questions.
Have questions i cant answer, and that i want to know more about.
Have moments of soft contemplation and moments of hard emotions and firm action.
Batman the animated series accomplished all this and more...
And so did
I cant begin to heap enough praise on the show...so i wont try.
All i can say is that you havent watched it, you should.
If you dont like cartoons get over it and watch it.
If you dont like cartoons that were not made in japan get over it and watch it.
If you have a kid, make sure you sit with your child or a significantly younger sibling , dont sell them short and watch it with them.
Have a nice day.
