RIP Satoshi Kon

Satoshi Kon, director of such amazing anime movies as Perfect Blue, Millenium Actress and Paprika, passed away this Tuesday due to pancreatic cancer. Kon was 46 years old, and his loss is a tremendous blow to the industry, as he was among the greatest names to have ever worked in Japanese animation. His movies have won numerous awards both in Japan, and outside, and his unique style was always instantly recognizable among the sea of mediocrity that anime can often be. May he rest in peace.
