by BakaSamma

What started out as a rumor on twitter posted by MADHOUSE studio’s founding director Masao Maruyama stating that an important studio director has passed. On Wednesday Satoshi Kon’s widow Kyōko Kon confirmed the rumor with a Posted message on Satoshi Kon’s official website,


8月24日午前6時20分、今 敏は膵臓癌(膵癌)により永眠いたしました。
享年46歳。
故人の意向により葬儀は親族のみで行います。

ここに生前のご厚誼を深謝し、謹んでお知らせ申し上げます。

Satoshi Kon is probably best known for his work on Perfect Blue and Roujin Z, or more recently Tokyo Godfathers and Paprika. While Miyazaki does pretty, Satoshi Kon did pretty and smart. With the anime industry’s lack of directors under 50 pushing the boundaries, losing Satoshi is a hard blow. He will be truly missed.
