It is with great sadness that we report that  Madhouse Director Satoshi Kon, who brought us great works like Perfect Blue, Tokyo Godfathers, and Paprika, has passed away.

Satoshi Kon passed away yesterday at the young age of 47. Jim Vowles of (Official Website for the Otakon Convention, where Satoshi-san was frequently a guest) confirmed it with Mr Maruyama at Madhouse. The madhouse team is very sad about this news, as are so many anime fans. Our heart goes out to his family and friends and their extreme loss. It is indeed, a sad day for the anime industry as well, as it loses one of its most accomplished and veteran directors.
