Flipnote Hatena Weekly News: Apr. 29, 2011



Hello, Flipnote artists and fans. This is Aaron at Hatena in Kyoto, Japan
with this week’s news blog.

We really enjoyed all of the hard-boiled action and excitement in last week’s
“Egg” Flipnotes. Thanks to all of you who took part, and we hope that you
enjoyed the topic as much as we did. This week we are happy to present a brand
new topic where you can make some noise! Please scroll down for more

For the next week many people in Japan will be enjoying Golden Week, which is several
days of national holidays in a row. For this reason we will not be posting the
Hatena Featured Artist next Wednesday (May 4). However, we will be back on
Friday with another edition of the news blog.
