Arriving Tomorrow on DVD -- STEVEN UNIVERSE: The Complete First Season (Review)

Disclosure: I was sent a review copy from the vendor in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

Cartoon Network's Emmy-nominated and critically acclaimed animated series from creator Rebecca Sugar will arrive with all 52 episodes to give ultimate fans the chance to revisit their favorite adventures with Steven.  

Cartoon Network: Steven Universe: The Complete First Season
Four-Disc Set Loaded With Exclusive Bonus Content Including Behind-the-Scenes Commentary With Series Creator Rebecca Sugar, Never-Before-Seen Music Videos And Special Recording From Volume One Soundtrack Listening Party 

The DVD is now available for pre-order for only $19.99 from Amazon.

My husband usually never asks for a specific DVD for me to review, so that he can help out and watch.  But, after learning about the Steven Universe Season 1 DVD last month, he was quick to ask if I would be reviewing it, or if I could, as he loves this Cartoon Network show, and would love to start collecting the whole series.  Even though are girls are too young to watch this popular animated series, he said it would be fun to watch with them when they get older, as they already like watching classic cartoons that my husband used to watch back in high school and college -- yes, he is a kid at heart and still loves watching cartoons with the girls. :-)

Fans of Steven Universe probably already pre-ordered this DVD collection, which contains all 52 full-length episodes from Season 1 of this Cartoon Network series. If they haven't, and are you looking for a fun Valentine's Day gift to give, why not consider picking up this DVD collection to surprise them with.  Just be warned, they will probably want to binge watch the episodes even though they have already seen them before, so you may have to sit and watch. But, I guarantee that when you sit down and watch a few episodes, you, too, will be hooked and want to watch another and then another episode. I say this as I am not usually a fan of these types of shows, but have been watching them with my husband recently after receiving the review copy and I found myself getting in the show.  I can see why so many kids and adults of all ages love this show and have been waiting for this DVD release.  So, what are you waiting for?  Head on over to Amazon to pre-order your copy of this DVD set, which releases tomorrow.  Or, while you are out and about tomorrow be sure to visit your favorite local retailer and pick up a copy to surprise that special Steven Universe fan in your life with.  They will be thanking you for days! :-)

Steven Universe is set in Beach City on the American East Coast, where the four Crystal Gems live in an ancient beachside temple, protecting the world from evil. As immortal alien warriors, they project female humanoid forms from magical gems that are the core of their being. The Crystal Gems are Garnet, Amethyst, Pearl and Steven, a young half-human, half-Gem boy who inherited the gem of his mother Rose Quartz, the former leader of the Crystal Gems. As Steven tries to figure out his powers, he spends his days with his human father Greg, his friend Connie or the other Gems, whether to help them save the world or just to hang out. He explores the abilities passed down to him by his mother, which include fusion - the ability of two Gems to temporarily merge their identities and bodies to form a distinct new personality.

As Cartoon Network’s most engaged property on social media, the empathetic and inclusive themes of Steven Universe resonate deeply with fans, garnering a massive following across a multitude of demographics.
