Aivi and Surasshu post: Overgrown Brambles

Another song from An Indirect Kiss, today we get to listen to Overgrown Brambles (2:24).


What to expect from Mirror Gem and Ocean Gem

Well, tomorrow’s the big day. Steven Universe will complete its first twenty-six episode batch with a two-part bonanza. It’s going to be spectacular.

We know there are twenty-six more episodes of season one and fifty-two episodes of season two coming. However, Cartoon Network initially ordered only twenty-six episodes. You can bet good money that Mirror Gem …

Aivi and Surasshu post: Rose’s Fountain

Aivi and Surasshu have posted Rose’s Fountain (1:02) from An Indirect Kiss. It does indeed sound a lot like this week’s featured song: The Hill,which makes sense considering the heavy association both of them have with Rose Quartz.

Song of the week: The Hill

In honor of Rose Quartz’s heavy involvement in An Indirect Kiss, this week’s selected song is The Hill, from Lars and the Cool Kids. This song seems to be Rose’s theme, and was also featured in extended form in An Indirect Kiss when the fountain was restored.

What are the gems?

Monster Buddy (1:47) Monster Spelunkin’ (0:36) Fight, Flight or Love (3:04)

What we learned from An Indirect Kiss

An Indirect Kiss gives us an interesting look at what happens when a gem is damaged, takes us to another new location, makes us wonder about Steven’s purpose, gives us something that might have crucial lore implications, and adds another power to Steven’s slowly growing list. As far as impact goes, this episode is long on speculation fuel and …
