RIP Satoshi Kon

"It's not that anime will never be the same with Satoshi Kon gone. It's now much more likely that anime will always be the same." - Jeff Betteridge on his twitter.

I love this quote, Kon's animation was true art not just throwaway trashy entertainment like 99% of anime. Perfect Blue is a masterpiece. Hopefully his works will inspire new directors to not just waste the medium on recreating reality and push the limits of 2d animation!
Time to catch up on the Kon works I missed, hopefully they'll make a box set or something.
