Program Details: * There will be 6 periods, each period with different group of FMA characters. * In each period fans can write a very short message (less than 20 Japanese/English letters) to that period's character and send it to GanGan via GanGan's official on-line site. * You can send your messages as many times as you'd like, to any or all of the characters specified for the period, but each message must be submitted separately. * You can use English or Japanese, as long as your message does not exceed Max char limit. * After the closing date, GanGan will list all the messages sent from fans for that period's characters, and also reveal the full size pic of the drawing of that period's group by Arakawa-sensei.

(1) Character you're sending message to: xxxxxx (charcter you selected would be shown here)
(2) Your message: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (message you entered would be shown here)

Disclaimer: GanGan editor holds the right to edit/eliminate messages deemed unsuitable, blah blah...
*if everything seems fine to you, then click on the Right side button at the bottom to send the message. (Clicking on the Left side button would take you BACK to the previous Message Composing box.)
(5) After you submit the message you can download the comical Ed/Al Twitter wallpaper (4 sizes)
How to send the message: General instruction. (For more info please see Period 6 above for step-by-step instructions.) On the above linked page, if you click on the RED BOX at the top Right part (inside the top box) that will open the window where you can choose one character and send your message to that character. (From Tombow's post below. ^^) After you pick who you want to send the message to, you leave a message of a max of 20 characters and then your name has to be 7 or less characters. Afterwards, you get to preview the message and you can submit. Once you complete, you get to download a specialized Twitter wallpaper. (From Kale Mustag's post below ^^)

And there's a special project, "Don't forget Fullmetal Alchemist" on Gangan Online: http://www.square-enix.com/jp/magazine/gan...e/event/hagane/ I'd like to know what's this project about, so can someone translate the page please? Also, there's a Roy-tachi pic drawn by Arakawa there, but I don't know how to get it.
Very interesting, seems like they might be releasing a new drawing every month or so just to keep us fond and give us somehing new to look at. At least thats what I think it is, nice idea is it is. I love new art .
