    World, I am officially angry at you. You took a legend.

    I love pretty much all of his work, especially Tokyo Godfathers. That's just way too young to go, but at least he left behind something people will adore for years to come.

    Damn, animation has just been robbed of one of its few great directors.

    Shamefully I still haven't watched Paprika yet, but I greatly admire his other works. Anime needs more directors like him, not less. :(

    Kon was a legend and a true master of the art of animation. For me he represented some of the best of what Japanese animation has to offer and his contributions to the art form will be missed immensely. My deepest feelings and condolences go out to his friends and family, I just hope he was not in much pain these last couple of months.

    The only thing I can say is even though he's gone at least his spirit lives on in the wonderful body of work he left behind. Let's hope Kon's legacy and contributions also live on and inspire the next generation of anime creators and filmmakers.

    R.I.P
