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.

5th Period: Thursday Sept.30, 2010 ~ Wed. Oct. 13, 2010 (2 weeks) Lovable Company: For the 5th group, we have those who had supported and comforted, and fought with Ed & co., Winry, May, Hohenheim, & Pinaco. (words translated from Message Submission page)
(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)
(3) Your nickname: xxxxxxx (your nickname 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 ^^)

^ @A Pierrot's Aria - Oh no no... that's what we (the board staff) is here for, and it's part of our job to constantly look out/look after for the forums and keep the forums nicely organized for our posters and visitors of the forums, by moving posts/threads to appropriate forums, etc., and if needed, like in this case, split the thread and make a new thread with a new thread topic, etc. And, in this case it really should have been me to do it since I'm the one who can read all the Japanese stuff on official GanGan site and hence could really understand all the details of this program... unfortunately, when this one was first brought to our attention, that's when I started being sick, and hence for the past one month or so I couldn't do lots of stuff I normally do to keep the board/forums going nicely. Sorry! T.T
@A Pierrot's Aria & Hoshino Hikari - I think you guys are right, and the last period will be probably Ed, Al, and possibly Winry? I noticed that May was not in Xingese group. Maybe we see her in this period? xp Also, I would love to see Hohenheim somewhere, and so.. he can be in this group also? ^^
...And, that means, I wonder who would be for the next period... trying to see which group hasn't been represented yet... Maybe a group of all "other" characters?
Anyway, since we still have a chance to send the message (till Sept. 29th Japan time), I'm soooo sending my shout-out to Bradley!!! (Or maybe to Greed. ^^)
