This is a translation of the instruction manual for Ginga Ojousama Densetsu Yuna (Galaxy Fraulein Yuna). Translation by Mafoo343; web formatting by Supper. Scans from Archive.org.
Our protagonist Yuna is a first-year at Shiraokadai Private School for Girls, which is widely renowned as a “school for frauleins1.” She’s a gentle and carefree soul, and more than a little absent-minded, but when she wins the “Galaxy Fraulein Contest,” her destiny takes a massive turn! Now she finds herself saddled with defending the universe from crisis! From the dark Thirteen to the Queen of Darkness herself, it’s nothing but fearsome foes one after another…Can Yuna really be the “Savior of Light” and protect the peace of the entire universe!?
1 “Fraulein” is this series’ official English equivalent for the term ojousama, a basically untranslatable word that invokes a particular Japanese cultural concept of a “pampered woman.” An archetypical image frequent anime watchers are probably familiar with is of a rich, haughty, aristocratic girl or young woman, perhaps in a voluminous dress and with some form of elaborately curled “drill hair,” who is given to holding her hand in front of her mouth with the palm turned outward dismissively while letting out a characteristic laugh of “OH-ho-ho-ho-ho!” However, there’s considerable room for variation in this stereotype, as evidenced by this game having thirteen characters who are all supposed to embody different facets of it.
● Yuna Kagurazaka, a.k.a. Yuna2 (The Savior of Light)
Clad in her Light Suit (Battle Suit), Yuna is unparalleled. She can shrug off the attacks of any opponent, and her power is immeasurable. She can be a little unreliable, but she’s still the leader of the “Matrix of Light”!
● Elner of Wisdom
The first to sense the crisis facing the universe, Elner sets off to find Yuna, the “Savior of Light.” Elner will be her good partner throughout the story! (Matrix of Light)
● Gina of the Earth
An android with a quiet and reserved personality. Gina watches over the balance of the “earth.” (Matrix of Light)
● Marina of the Sea
Marina is kindhearted and possesses a caring personality. She maintains the equilibrium of the “water.” (Matrix of Light)
● Erina of the Sky
Erina has a very easygoing and active personality. Additionally, she just loves to talk. Erina possesses the power to generate enough “wind” to cause the circulation of the air. (Matrix of Light)
● The Matrix of Light: Yuna’s other selves as the Savior of Light.
2 Here, Yuna’s first name is initially written out in kanji the normal way as 優奈, then again in katakana as ユナ. This katakana stylization is how the name usually appears throughout the franchise. Basically, it looks “cooler” than writing it normally, but is semantically meaningless – it's sort of like if it was written in all caps.
● Lia (Liavelt von Neuestein)
Yuna’s rival. Head of the imperial guard of the Dark Queen, who controls the Thirteen. She is the daughter of an old German count. She has an interest in Yuna, and meddles in her affairs in various ways.
● The Thirteen Frauleins of Darkness
Whenever the peace of the universe is disturbed and it becomes engulfed in darkness, they appear. They are the minions that serve the Queen of Darkness, aiming to conquer the galaxy.
● Remi of China
● Mai of Roppongi
● Gentle Shiori
● Ryudia of the Ancient Civilization
● Alephtina of the Violin
● The Queen of Darkness
● Rock Princess

In battle scenes, you will use a command system similar to an RPG to fight your enemies. You will battle each other until your opponent’s HP (hit points) are zero, at which point you are victorious.
|● Escape||Sometimes, she who fights and runs away lives to fight another day.|
|● Attack||Weapon Attack||Gun Mode||Yuna’s primary weapons are a “gun” and a “sword.” This will be the typical way you fight. These will reliably be able to hit your opponent.|
|Verbal Attack||No matter how ladylike they may seem, in a battle between women, harsh language is sure to be used! It’s highly effective, but has a limited number of uses. Make good use of your “Fraulein Points” to take advantage of your opponent’s weaknesses!!|
|● Defend||Protecting yourself is also an effective option! You can even dodge your opponent’s attacks.|
|● Regain Dignity||Take a minute to calm your opponent’s anger with a modest attitude! You can recover your Fraulein Points by doing so!|

Galaxy Fraulein YUNA Bonus Message
Transmission from Shiraokadai Girls’ High School
When recording for “Yuna,” Yumi Touma, who played the role of Lia, praised me, saying “Chisa, you’re well-suited for this kind of role, aren’t you?” That happy-go-lucky personality is both Yuna and Chisa’s charm!!
