The history of galaxy continues again in 2017…

A mysterious message was posted on this website at 2pm June 3rd.
On December 28th, 2015, a mystery quotation from the original novel of the anime was posted. Breaking the 6-month silence, the message was posted.
The new message is from Chapter 5, The Capture of Iserlohn of the original novel, Legend of the Galactic Heroes 1, Dawn Ver. From a conversation between Yang Wen-li and Alex Caselnes, and they mention “after record studio” and “audition.”
