The code point, U+32FF, is reserved by the Unicode Consortium to represent the Japanese square character for the new era that begins from May, 2019. Relevant methods in the `Character` class return the same properties as the existing Japanese era characters (e.g., U+337E for "Meizi"). For details about the code point, see [http://blog.unicode.org/2018/09/new-japanese-era.html](http://blog.unicode.org/2018/09/new-japanese-era.html).
