Are the Crystal Gems
We'll always save the day
And if you think you can't, we'll
Always find a way
That's why the people of this world
Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl
Steven is the proverbial “little brother” to a team of magical guardians of humanity, the CRYSTAL GEMS! Steven may not be as powerful as the Crystal Gems. Or as smart. And he may not have any control over the magical powers that come out of his bellybutton. But that doesn’t stop him from joining Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl on their magical adventures - where Steven always finds a surprising way to save the day.
Steven Universe (voiced by Zach Callison) is the happy-go-lucky eponymous protagonist. The son of former Gem Rose Quartz (who died giving birth to Steven and passed on her powers to him) and Greg Universe (a one-hit wonder musician whose stage name is apparently his legal name), Steven acts as sort of a surrogate little brother for the other three gems. Although his heart is bigger than his brain, he still manages to do the right thing when it counts and unfailingly bring a smile to the faces of everyone he meets.
Garnet (voiced by Estelle) is the strong, silent leader of the Gems whose icy demeanor masks her kind, caring nature. She fights using a pair of crimson gauntlets summoned from the gems on her hands.
Amethyst (voiced by Michaela Dietz) is the Gems' token slacker; a rather immature girl who values having fun above completing missions. Despite this, she can still be very deadly when push comes to shove, and fights using a multi-tipped whip summoned from the gem on her chest.
Pearl (voiced by Deedee Magno) is the most motherly of the gems, and the one in charge of making sure Steven stays out of trouble while learning to control his powers. She is also the best character in the show, which is something you'll have to accept if you want to post in this thread. Pearl fights using a naginata summoned from the gem on her forehead.

Why does this show remind me of Adventure Time?
Steven Universe was created by Rebecca Sugar, who previously served as a storyboard artist and writer for Adventure Time. Chances are she probably was involved in your favourite episode of AT, since her work on the show has nabbed her two Emmy nominations.
I don't think Pearl is the best character.
IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOU THINK.
