He reportedly died yesterday of cancer. He directed the Magnetic Rose bit from Memories, episode 15 of Ani Kuri 15 as well as Perfect Blue, Millenium Actress, Paranoia Agent, Tokyo Godfathers, and Paprika. He was in the middle of creating Dream Machine.

This is a huge loss for the anime community as his work was considered impeccable. A lot of it had interesting characters and delved into their psyche's.

He was 47.

Rest in Peace.

I'm so glad someone posted a topic with this. I was just trying to but apparently dont have enough CR points :/
Crunchyroll should have a dedication period to him where they feature his works for everyone on the site. I messaged them about it already but who knows if they read those things >_>
Please everyone, get Crunchyroll to honor the genius that is Satoshi Kon!

Wow, at the age of 47... that is far too young an age for a man with such a great talent to pass away. Rest in peace to Satoshi Kon, arguably one of the best anime directors in the world. His ability to create psychologically complex and almost flawless series was truly phenomenal, a standout from today's anime industry, which is plagued with overused plots, cliched humor, recycled characters and cheap fanservices. I can only grieve about how much his full potential which he could have graced us with have faded away just like that.

Perhaps the best summary of my belief and respect for him.
