Crest of the Stars (Seikai no Monshou, Agh Dadr) is a wonderful Sci-Fi novel series by Morioka Hiroyuki. It depicts an interstellar empire in the future ruled by a species distinct from Homo sapiens.
Despite the fact it was his first long novel, its well-established world, attractive characters and witty conversation attracted so many people that the first book was to be reprinted three times within two months after its original publication.
As this was his first full length novel, it had taken him a considerable period of time to find a publisher to accept it. But the time was not wasted; he was able to think of all the fine details which formed the world where his characters enjoy their lives.
The purpose of this page is to give some background knowledge/information to those who are interested in the novels but are unable to read them because of the language barrier. Of course, it would be wonderful if someday this page becomes useless because the series are published in English!
Due to the complicated language system used in the novel, the following notation is used to indicate the origin of words.
