Anime of the Past: Perfect Blue

oprainfall writes: “Perfect Blue is a psychological thriller first released by Rex Entertainment in 1997. Based on a novel of the same name by Yoshikazu Takeuchi, it marked the theatrical film debut of director Satoshi Kon, who would later go on to direct Millennium Actress, Tokyo Godfathers, Paprika, and the television series Paranoia Agent before tragically succumbing to pancreatic cancer in 2010.

I watched this when I was a kid and it fkd my mind.

Too bad Satoshi Kon died, he was still young, he made really great movies and he couldn't finish his last one. ;______;
