Papillon Rose (パピヨンローゼ, Papiyon Rōze) is an erotic comedy anime series which parodies the magical girl genre, particularly Sailor Moon and Cutie Honey. A 24-minute OVA was released in 2003 followed by a six-episode TV series, broadcast in Japan in 2006. A DVD collection containing the OVA and TV series was released in North America in 2010.
Tsubomi is a savvy school girl who works at a lingerie club, who can't perform well and resorts in blackmailing her boss to prevent losing her job. One day, she meets into a gorgeous young man and a perverted talking cat with a butterfly on its forehead, who recruits her to be a Lingerie Soldier. She has to fight off a dominatrix elf woman called Beene, a minion of Regina Apis, a matriarch bent on chaos and forming her new Dynasty. Tsubomi is learning of her powers when she is rescued by an oddly familiar masked man, known only as Dandelion.
One year after the OVA, Kabucki-cho was devastated, and the owner abandoned "Pallion," and reopened it into "New Papillion" in Akihabara. Tsubomi, and her colleagues Anne and Shizuku lost their memories, retain their new lives in Akihabara, after losing their memories after the war.
On the other hand, the Susano aliens appeared and turned a UMA into a monster to raid Akihabara. Rama the cat made Tsubomi and her buddies retrieve their memories, and let them fight against the monster as Lingerie Soldiers again.
