Satoshi KonTwitter has been awash this afternoon with the news that Satoshi Kon, director of TV series Paranoia Agent and movies Perfect Blue and Paprika - amongst may other titles - has passed away, aged just 47. The news was confirmed by animation studio Madhouse's Masao Maruyama. The cause of death as been given as pancreatic cancer.

To some, Kon was one of the greatest directors currently working - certainly he was someone who wasn't afraid to do something different, at a time when most animation studios are leaning towards the safe options. He will be missed.
