Original Japanese English Translation
Nee Chotto, doushite kopii nanka suruno? ROM ni kawatte oshioki yo!! Kono bunshow wo yomu towa, onushimo nakanaka waru yo noo. E? Kopii surunja nakattanda. Korya mata shitsurei shimashita. Yoikono minna, geemuno kopii nante yatcha damedayo! Geemuno kopii nante, waruiojisanno surukoto dakarane. Sorekara, kono geemuwo kattekudasatta kata, arigato gozaimasu. Korekaramo yoroshiku! ねえちょっと、どうしてコピーなんかするの? ROMにかわっておしおきよ!! このぶんしょうをよむとは、おぬしなかなかわるよのー。 え? コピーするんじゃなかったんだ。 こりゃまたしつれいしました。 よいこのみんな、ゲームのコピーなんだてやっちゃダメだよ! ゲームのコピーなんで、わるいおじさんのすることだからね。 それから、このゲームをかってくださったかた、ありがとうございます。 これからもヨロシク! Hey, wait a second; why would you copy this? In the name of the ROM, I will punish you!! If you're reading this, you're pretty bad aren't ya. Oh? You weren't trying to copy it, you say. Well, I'm sorry then. Alright kids, you can't go around copying games! Copying games is just for bad old men. So, anyway, thanks to those who bought this game. Best regards!

The line "ROM ni kawatte oshioki yo!!" is a play on Sailor Moon's famous catchphrase, "Tsuki ni kawatte oshioki yo!" (In the name of the moon, I will punish you!)
