RIP Satoshi Kon

August 24, 2010 — 7 Comments

Another great one has gone.

Animated film director Satoshi Kon passed away from a heart attack. His animated gems included Perfect Blue, Tokyo Godfathers and Paprika. That alone with the news of Studio Ghibli wanting to close down doors, is just right down depressing.

  1. Inesperada muerte. Paranoia Agent me abrió un mundo de posibilidades.

  2. That was the prevailing opinion for several hours yesterday on Twitter, but I just assumed it was legit and tweeted it anyway.

    • I'm unclear on the cause of death, though. I read several sources saying it was a heart attack, then there was drugs and anorexia… and then I heard cancer. What was it?

  3. thanks for the info.
