Satoshi Kon didn’t die suddenly like we have read on the reports but a gradual death. He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in may this year and was told he will have not long on this world.
Before he left, he has written this post, which his family so kindly published for him, and translated by Makikoitoh.com. In it, he noted down his worries and what have been done along with the thanks to the family, other people and the fans. Whom have supported him during this painful 3 months.
I, myself will not be able to convey the same message effectively for I am equally touched and speechless by the end of the article. We have really lost a great man.
Without a doubt, I cried a little when I read the post…
