The unobtainable item bulletin paper uses the filler name in the German version: ブランクドイツ (literally translates to "blank German").

Minor differences were made to some terms used in the game. Also, minor grammar has been changed in some of the dialogue. Due to the amount of minor changes made and the amount of dialogue in this game, they will not be listed.

Hmmm...
