I've only haven't seen Tokyo Godfathers and Paranoia Agent. Everything else I watched was noteworthy and left a really good impression on me. His works are a beautiful thing to watch.

I watched Paprika, which I loved, and made a promise to myself to look up his other work and watch it, which I never kept. Then I was shocked to see on twitter that he had died.

I then rented Tokyo Godfathers from Netflix, and loved it. Then I watched I more recently watched Perfect Blue, then Millenium Actress. I'm still looking forward to the Paranoia Agent series in my queue.

Satoshi Kon was a genuine artist in the films he directed, bringing a depth to his work that is all too often lacking, and a joy that is infectious.

We always mourn the loss of an artist whose work we love, but it bites deepest when he is struck down in his creative prime. He will be sorely missed.

Satoshi Kon

Personally, I've never been a fan of any of his works. Everything that I've seen has been pretty hit-or-miss for me (I thought Paprika was good, I hated Paranoia Agent, and Perfect blue made no sense whatsoever). But I do acknowledge his popularity and talent as a director. He (and his visually stunning anime) will be missed.

I'm putting something together this weekend to send through the mail. I'm so thrilled about the way the fan community is responding, and all these different groups are working together to honor Satoshi Kon's legacy. Really awesome!

Many thanks to ANN, Crunchyroll, Otakon, and MADHOUSE.

My thoughts and prayers continue to be with Satoshi Kon's family.



It blows me away that of all the investigations into personality, reality, and self that Satoshi Kon created he hadn't yet had time to put together a statement on death and the afterlife. It especially blows me away after reading the translation of his final blog entry and hearing about his own personal near death experiences around the time he was struggling not only with his cancer but also pneumonia.

Satoshi Kon, a serious hero and unparalleled talent. You will be missed.

What an awesome idea. You guys truly rock, you know that? I am proud to be apart of this community, one that really, truly cares.
Kon, Jun Seba...it truly isn't fair.

Well if the objective of #1 is comforting family, then perhaps it is best that I don't participate. I've expressed my sentiments in detail already, acknowledge great art but dislike him greatly.

Good call CR. And yes I still recall going to a screening of Perfect Blue I won tickets to see in a theatre and it's so true he mixed anime and Alfred Hitchcock level scares and story telling. If you need a unique movie for Halloween check his works out. RIP Kon.

R.I.P Satoshi Kon, we will all miss u greatly, thanks for all your amazing inspirying movies that have touched and inspired many of us like me to fallow your foot steps.
You'll b missed greatly, but your everlasting work and memories will remaind forever in our hearts.


Perfect Blue, Tokyo god fathers and paranoia agent were amounghs my favorite works from him, its truelly sad to see such talented mind die in the prime of his life and creativity, but he truelly touched many of us with his work.
My prairs are with his family and his spirit during this hard times, its not eassy to lose such person and thanks to everyone who is putting all these together, so we the fans can show our deepest simphaties and gratitude for what he has done.
i wish we could make some of his work even if for a day available for all of us who love it to see and for many others to get known of it too.

How nice! I'm sure his family will be very touched.
His passing was a great loss to the anime world!

Question:
How long do we have to do this? When is the cut off date?
A few weeks a month?
Thanks! :)

Still greatly annoys me that I can't just go out and buy a brand new copy of Paranoia Agent or Millennium Actress (in R1). These never should have been able to go out of print. Seriously, why hasn't PA been rescued from Geneon yet and what is wrong with Dreamworks letting MA slip away, and now of all times?


They probably sold poorly or not well enough to justify a license rescue or new release.

NYC screening of PB and Paprika in December. [ http://www.fangoria.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2467:julias-eyes-and-more-at-nyc-spanish-fest&catid=1:latest-news&Itemid=167 ] As for Dreamworks, it didn't know anything about handling MA, and bet its Oscar race on House of Sand and Fog.
