After several tweets, Otakon confirmed that Tokyo Godfather & Paprika director Satoshi Kon has passed away. UK Anime Network wrote;

This is breaking news just coming in as I type this, emanating from the Twitter account of GAINAX’s Yasuhiro Takeda and later confirmed by Madhouse’s Masao Maruyama via theOtakon committee, but the renowned and much-admired anime director Satoshi Kon passed away yesterday at the age of 47.

Everyone at Podcast on Fire sends their deepest condolences to the family and friends of Satoshi Kon 🙁

Everyone should take a time out and rematch their favourite Satoshi Kon flick!
