Japanese moviegoers who see this year's Fullmetal Alchemist: Milos no Sei-Naru Hoshi will receive the "11.5th volume" of Hiromu Arakawa's Fullmetal Alchemist manga, while supplies last. Fullmetal Alchemist Volume 11.5 ~Tabidachi no Mae ni~ (Fullmetal Alchemist #11.5 Before Embarking on the Journey) will include a new story drawn by Arakawa herself.
The film will open in Japan on July 2, and advance tickets have been on sale since last November. As of this month, buyers of the third round of advance tickets will now receive a 13-page original school calendar with illustrations by Arakawa.
In addition, people who bring the 27th and final manga volume when they buy the advance ticket will receive a special board (shikishi) illustrated by Arakawa, as well as the opportunity to have their manga volume's "Memorial Stamp Page" imprinted with the "Hagaren Memorial Stamp." The manga ended in Square Enix's Shonen Gangan magazine last June, and over 50 million copies of the manga have been published.
A similar manga present promotion was held for the One Piece Film Strong World film in 2009.
