The anime world lost one of it's greats yesterday. On August 23rd, it was reported and then confirmed that director Kon Satoshi had passed away from cancer at age 47. "Kon started as a manga artist and graduated to anime features with the drama PERFECT BLUE, which he followed with the comedy TOKYO GODFATHERS, the time-spanning memoir MILLENNIUM ACTRESS and the TV series "Paranoia Agent"."

He wrote and/or directed films such as Perfect Blue, Tokyo Godfathers, Millennium Actress, and Paprika. He also directed the TV series Paranoia Agent.

I don't know if all the people from this age remembers such anime movies as tokyo godfather or perfect blue or even tv series paranoia agent ... but i do remember them and they were greate series and movies so i can only say Rest in Peace. He will be missed.

The influential filmmaker had been working on his lastest project THE DREAM MACHINE with his regular collaborators at animation company Studio Madhouse. His last completed film
was the trippy dream adventure PAPRIKA:
