Specifically I mean Steven Universe, the cartoon by Rebecca Sugar.
Steven is a young half-human boy. He's part "Crystal Gem", a species of people from another world based on geological objects He's sort of part super hero and part little kid. He's funny, sweet, kind, moderately obnoxious in a charming way. He makes up songs about things. He loves people.
He reminds me so damn much of little mako, the other guy I carry around in my head. I just binge watched 14 episodes of the darn thing, and am utterly and completely in love with it. It's funny, wise, and a tiny bit transgressive. It pokes fun at social norms. Steven is something of an unwitting gender and culture outlaw. He doesn't act the way he does to spite social norms - he's just sort of immune to them.
It's brilliant. I'm glad it's around.
Check it out. I bet you will fall in love with it too.
