Over on the Submitterator, Boing Boing reader "gnp" pointed us to UK Anime Network's report that famed anime director Satoshi Kon (ä»Š æ•) has died. He was
47 46. (As one commenter pointed out, Kon's birthday wasn't until October. Earlier reports had stated he was 47 at his time of death.)
I wrote about Kon's sole TV creation, the short, but brilliant series Paranoia Agent, for LA Weekly's Style Council. Twitter has been abuzz regarding the sad news. There have been some lovely tributes to Kon across the social media network. Here are a few:
"Satoshi Kon has passed away at age 47. He created Paranoia Agent and Paprika. He was the Fellini of Anime." —@TheHeartSleeves
"It's not that anime will never be the same with Satoshi Kon gone. It's now much more likely that anime will always be the same."—@jbetteridge
"You shall be missed, Satoshi Kon, but more than that, you shall be remembered."—@tehnominator
" RIP Satoshi Kon. One of the greatest anime directors of all time. A man who had an infinite amount to say, and no time at all to say it."—@ Zhirzzh
"RIP Satoshi Kon. The maker of films we aspire to make."—@AWFstudio
