If you thought this week's Adventure Time looked off, then you're not wrong! It was animated by the guest director Masaaki Yuasa, a well known Japanese director/writer whose works include The Tatami Galaxy and the anime adaptation of Ping Pong manga, which just may be my favorite show this year.

In any case, I don't remember Adventure Time ever being... "educational" in a straight forward fashion like this. Why, Yuasa even put a song number in to review the "lesson" in the end. It's an interesting distraction from all the heavy teen psyche stuff the show's been dealing with since the latter half of Season 5.

Oh well. Here's some more samplers from Masaaki Yuasa's works.
