Candidate for Succeeding a Count's Family (Japanese: 伯爵家後継候補) is the eighth episode of the A Hundred Billion Stars, a Hundred Billion Lights arc of the first series of the Legend of Galactic Heroes Gaiden OVA.



Siegfried Kircheis returns to his hometown for a short trip to visit his parents, whom he has not met for eight years since joining the military. During his short trip, he reminisces about his childhood and unexpectedly meets up with an old acquaintance. A few days later, Kaiser Friedrich IV reveals his plan to bestow Reinhard von Müsel with a countship upon his twentieth birthday to Richard von Grimmelshausen, who wholeheartedly concurs with it. Within a day, news of the plan spread like wildfire throughout the Imperial Court and eventually reaches Reinhard's ears, who, in an uncharacteristic manner, looks forward to it enthusiastically. The reaction of the high nobles towards the Kaiser's plan is however one of outrage and hostility. Meanwhile, another rumour emerges in the Imperial Court, this time revolving around the background of Hermann von Lüneburg.
