''Lingerie Soldier Papillon Rose'' is an {{ecchi}} parody of the MagicalGirl genre, particularly of ''Anime/SailorMoon'' whose plot it borrows from heavily. ''Papillon Rose'' started out as a web original, getting a brief OVA in 2003 and a 6-episode broadcast sequel called ''Papillon Rose: New Season'' in 2006.
