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.

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 - No worries. ^^ We have lots of volunteer team members kindly doing lots of works for our board to keep the board updated and organized, and I'm glad I can help with this one. And, I'm having fun.
And yes, next group is Winry, May, Hohenheim, & Pinako. I was just mentioning in my last post my desire to see Winry, May, and Hohenheim, and wondering if they were possibly in the last group. Good timing! Xd
I translated the name of this group as Lovable Company..or, I could have translated it as Lovable Companions and technically that would have been correct translations as well, I think. Just FYI. ^^
Anyway, (Warning! Series Final SPOILER ahead!) having Winry's famly (Winry, Pinako) and Ed & Al's family (Hohenheim) and May, in addition to the "family pic" from the last chapter, I think it's a pretty strong indication of what Arakawa thinks of, in terms of AlxMay? ^^
I already sent one message to Pinako! We have 2 weeks to send our messages, and I'll probably try to send messages to Winry, May, and especially Hohenheim aslo!
And yes, this means, the last group got be definitely, Ed and Al! (If so, too bad we didn't get to see Izumi in this event.) And yes, messages and Arakawa's drawing of Homunculus would be revealed on Oct. 7.
