Kon`s final message as reported by animenewsnetwork:
" May 18 of this year, an unforgettable day.
My wife and I received the following prognosis from a cardiologist
at the Musashino Red Cross Hospital:
- The pancreatic cancer is terminal and has metastasized to the
bone. You have at most a half year left.-
When I conveyed my concerns for Yume-Miru Kikai to Mr. Maruyama,
he said, "It's fine. Don't worry, we'll do whatever it takes."
I cried aloud.
With feelings of gratitude for all that is good in this world, I
put down my pen.
Well, I'll be leaving now.
