Steven Universe’s Antagonists From a Plot Standpoint
When you consider Steven Universe as a tale progressing linearly, it fails several criteria that, in my opinion at least, would make the show’s pacing and characters feel more real.
For example, every single “antagonist” has been shelved in some way or form. They are not pictured, mentioned, or even thought about by the protagonists until they are literally shoved in their faces.
In this post, we will be looking at how Steven Universe has handled their protagonists poorly, what could have been changed in order for their presences to make sense, and/or the implication their stories have on the entire overarching plot.
