Satoshi Kon, the director of Perfect Blue, Tokyo Godfathers, Paprika, and Paranoia Agent has just passed away at the age of 47. I've only seen Perfect Blue which was fantastic, been planning on watching Paprika and Tokyo Godfathers for awhile but haven't got to yet. But just from Perfect Blue I can tell how good he was at what he does, I'm sad to hear he's gone. PB was one of my first anime films. Gotta see his other films ASAP.
May he rest in peace.
