Salutations, readers! My name is Amy, an animation nerd who’s absolutely psyched to write for Femini as a (hopefully) recurring guest writer. Gravity Falls and Steven Universe are two of my all-time favorite shows, and each turn of the page in their respective stories always has something fun and interesting to offer, as their patient and passionate fanbases will tell you.
Because both shows rely on a network of slow-burning twists with clues carefully laid out over plots told mostly in episodic fashion, diving into the most recent seasons has its shares of pros and cons. It gives me the advantage of digging into the juicier plot-heavy episodes, but also the slight disadvantage of having to recap stuff from Season 1. Once I’m done with catching up on the current seasons, I will go back to the very beginning for each show to fill in any future hiatus periods which, given the wonky airing schedules for both shows, doesn’t seem unlikely.
And with that intro out of the way, let’s dig in!
