God ****ing damn it.

Those who knew him personally lost someone who was probably a creative force, an unwavering inspiration in their lives. His image and his works will hopefully remain so, for them, and for us.

This is a dark day for the anime industry. In no world or time will his imagination and creativity ever be replicated.

I feel quite ashamed that I've yet to watch Tokyo Godfathers and Millennium Actress.

Such a shame.  He was very young and had so much more to give.

I recommend Mobile Suit, RX-0 and Unicorn from the Unicorn OST.

Wow, at the age of 47... that is far too young an age for a man with such a great talent to pass away. Rest in peace to Satoshi Kon, arguably one of the best anime directors in the world. His ability to create psychologically complex and almost flawless series was truly phenomenal, a standout from today's anime industry, which is plagued with overused plots, cliched humor, recycled characters and cheap fanservices. I can only grieve about how much his full potential which he could have graced us with have faded away just like that.

Damn shame. He was so young.

I have really fond memories of watching Paranoia Agent late at night and thinking about them made me pretty sad today.
I fell off the wagon and now I can't stop.

A difficult document to read.

It is very unfortunate that his pet project "The Dream Machine" may not come to fruition. He passed with many accomplishments and thanks, but also many regrets.

I'm watching Perfect Blue, Millennium Actress and Paranoia Agent really soon.
