Yeah, I was pretty bummed when he died, especially when I read his final writings reflecting on his life, and his impending death.
His movies were some of the only animation to come out of Japan that isn't complete garbage. I never did see his series (Paranoia Agent, was it?) I really have to check that out some day. I also really, really hope Madhouse ends up completing Dreaming Machine, or if nothing else, somehow releases what he completed while he was alive so we can see it.
I wish Kon had lived a longer life. The world would be better with more of his movies.
harveyjames is going to be very cross with you based on his facebook rant on this video.
...people like it because it's about someone we like anyway!!
...but it's really stupid and ill-researched!! It made me cross yo
I don't disagree, I am just heralding your arrival!
I want to make a beautifully edited video with tearjerking music about Mohandes Ghandi, where the last five minutes say he came from Stoke-On-Trent and invented the ice cream scoop. Just to see if it still gets millions of shares like 'beautiful tribute to a great man RIP ; ____ ; '
The only film of his I've seen is Tokyo Godfathers. Its the best paced film I've ever seen.

My favorite anime creator along with Masaaki Yuasa.
I still need to see Tokyo Godfathers and all of Paranoia Agent.
I didn't know about Ohayou before - brilliant as usual. And now I just read about Dreaming Machine, which has been stalled due to financial issues but hopefully they'll be able to properly bring his final vision to the screen.
My wife and I met by having a conversation about Paranoia Agent.
The news of this man's death greatly saddens me.
