starlady: Sheeta & Pazu watch the world open out before them (think in layers)
[personal profile] starlady
Kon Satoshi has died at the age of 47. Rumor says the cause was cancer, according to news agencies & his New York Times obituary.

Via @alexleavitt on Twitter, I think this post at Subatomic Brainfreeze says it best, both in regards to what Kon had done already and in what we could have expected from him in the future. Hopefully his final feature film will be released at some point.

This definitely means there should be a panel on his anime at Wiscon next year.

According to this link from ANN, the founder of Madhouse indicated that Kon-san's last movie will be completed. That, at least, is a tiny comfort.
