Papillon Rose (2019)

Lingerie Soldier Papillon Rose is an anime which parodies the magical girl genre, particularly Sailor Moon and Cutie Honey. Created by dojinshi group ECHIGOYA, Papillon Rose started out as a metafiction joke on a website, and the official website only had a few pictures of characters and a few lyrics to opening and ending theme songs. Demand grew due to people finding the page and assuming it was for an actual series, and in 2003, the series was picked up by the animation studio Pink, and an OVA was produced. An episode guide for the first series and manga was also made available, as well as a set of CD-ROMs containing a 2-minute animated promotional clip, eight songs, system voice clips for computers, a Papillon Rose mahjong game, and two screen savers. The CDs were only made available for Comiket, and were not distributed outside of Japan. Later an episode guide for the second season was made as well. The homepage was redesigned and updated with fake manga covers and notes from the fictional author. Amateur voice actors and singers were also contacted to provide sample character voice clips for a handful of the villains and heroines. An English version was initially intended for release on the Internet, but plans failed to materialize. In March 2010, Section 23 films announced plans to distribute the 6 episode series and OVA on DVD for North America on behalf of Maiden Japan. The DVD set is planned to be released on June 8, 2010. Maiden Japan is a division of "J-Horror" and "Pink Cinema" licensor Switchblade Pictures. Papillon Rose will be their first release.
