Satoshi Kon dies of cancer, aged 47

I didn’t want to belive this when I first read it, coming in from Twitter as it was and with many celebrity death reports being a prank, but it looks like it is true.

I really love Satoshi Kon’s films.  He was one of Japan’s greatest modern filmmakers, and one of the few who understood the potential of the animated film.  He rarely made something that was not a work of pure genius.

This sucks…
