Steven Universe: “Rising Tides/Crashing Skies” Review - AVClub

AVClub: Ronaldo is probably the most divisive character on Steven Universe. I’ve seen people who love him, and people who refuse to watch episodes that focus on him. Why is that? To be sure, Ronaldo is a little obnoxious, but he also often comes across like a surrogate for the fans, or at least a certain kind of fan. In “Full Disclosure,” he manifests an attitude toward the supernatural that places him within the events of the series, even though he is not of them. His blog is the closest he’s come to fully participating (give or take some lizard people), until the events of “Rising Tides/Crashing Skies.” That Ronaldo often comes across as obnoxious reads, to me, like a sense of projecting, an anxiety over interacting with the series solely as a fan who is often (lovingly) tweaked by the writers and storyboard artists for the relationship they have to the show.

The story is too old to be commented.
