Report from the HUFT meeting at the Japan Expo in Paris, France

The following report was sent to us by Mary (id:Mary_Innerlight), the leader of the Hatena Ultimate French Team (HUFT) about their meeting at the Japan Expo in Paris, France on July 4, 2010.


“What an exhausting day! I arrived at the Japan Expo together with my fellow Flipnoter Aki ◆ Enma because we both live in the same region. The Japan Expo, which happened for the 11th time this year, seemed even more crowded than last year. Unfortunately, it wasn’t possible for us to find every member of HUFT because of the crowds, but we tried our best. When we finally got everyone together we laughed so much! Other Flipnoters who attended were: Piikassa, Hiro, Akutsu, CatLuigi, Tayabj, and many people came to ask us about what HUFT is. We explained to them about Flipnote Hatena, and how we make our animations, and it seemed to interest people very much. After we ate together, we talked about our ideas for improving our team. I am now preparing a promotion Flipnote for HUFT, and I hope that many people will be able to see it. Even though it was the first time that many of the HUFT members met in real life, we had the feeling that we already knew each other very well from all of the fun times we had together on Flipnote Hatena. At the end of the afternoon, we promised each other that we would meet again soon.
