Aww, they don't have any fancy new pics, they're just resizes of things we've already seen :(

also, I am confused and disturbed by "shaomei". from my learnings it seems like logically it should be xiaomei...both can mean 'small', but xiao is actually used in names, whereas shao usually signifies 'few', as in amount :/ at least, as far as I know...

I used the Japanese romaji to spell it, so it's different than the Chinese spelling; I just checked the website and they have it spelled as "Shao May."

I know it's the Japanese romaji, my complaint is sort of that I don't think it should be romanized that way XD since Xing is a lot more China than Japan...

It's been spelt "Xiaomei" in the manga scanslation and in the official Chuang Yi translation. (Don't know about the Viz version, but I hear that they're fairly unreliable on spelling anyway...)

Also, being spelt "Shao" in katakana doesn't make it a correct spelling; it's just a phonetic representation of a non-Japanese word. Apparently Xingese language is real-world Chinese, judging from what little written Xingese has been seen, so it makes sense to assume that it's meant to be a Chinese word. Not to mention that Xiaomei meaning "little Mei" makes perfect sense in context.

They have it spelled as "Shao May" in English on the official Japanese FMA website, so if you want to complain about it, you should write to them.
