A pioneer in animation, film and storytelling. He may have passed but his works will live on forever just like any true masterpiece. Satoshi Kon, thank you and may your importance one day be recognized around the world as it rightfully should.

Yup. Divergent, Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream, and so many other Hollywood movies copied this guy's work SCENE BY SCENE. How utterly infuriating.

I think Satoshi is extremely creative, and I'm so glad he got recognition, but god damn the copy cats.

Holy crap! I didn't know he died. His writing never disappoints, the best anime writers.
