I finally got to see Adventure Time's finale!

It got me really emotional. Adventure Time is a great series, full of character development and world building, but most importantly, an underlying sense of emotional maturity unique to its media.

This cartoon hits a lot of milestones for me: a love for D&D, weird fantasy, animation, parent abandonment and a sense of loss. Hell, Adventure Time even helped me get through a rough breakup and was one of the shared experiences that helped me connect with my current partner.

From the first season the whimsical adventure evokes an underlying sense of dread, like something's wrong. By the time they reveal that Ooo is actually post-apocalypse Earth you are so invested in their stories that it makes you re-construct past episodes from a new perspective, the best kind of twist. But the creators never focus on that aspect, the world is just another tool to develop a story about coping with loss and change. The final episode embodies this aspect perfectly:

Time is an illusion that helps things make sense
So we are always living in the present tense
It seems unforgiving when a good thing ends
But you and I will always be back then
You and I will always be back then

We live of memories present, and are all the way to the end. There is no age to learn that. And for this lesson I thank Adventure Time.
