Director Satoshi Kon Passes Away

August 24, 2010

A truly great man passed away at the age of 47. Madhouse founder Maruyama announced on his twitter than an important Madhouse Studio director had passed away, but didn’t say who, but it seems that the director was Satoshi Kon. Satoshi Kon started off as a manga artist and editor. He was a great director, who  made such films like Perfect Blue, Paranoia Agent, and Paprika. He had a tendency to go with the subjective reality theme, which I’ve always been a fan of. It’s a great loss to the anime industry, and Madhouse as well, which has been having some troubles. He was also working with them on a feature film called Yume Miru Kikai.

WHY SATOSHI WHY ;-;
