Lingerie Soldier Papillon Rose is an ecchi parody of the Magical Girl genre, particularly of Sailor Moon 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.
Shout-Out: The OVA has several shout-outs to the original Cutey Honey: the title card is done in the same style, Sister Beene's name is a reference to Sister Jill, and when Tsubomi first transforms, she yells "Honey Flash!" as her clothes shred off, but Rama tells her to knock it off and transform properly.
Sixth Ranger: Dahlia in the New Season; Adonis, Lupinus, and Petite Rose in Season R of the ONA.
Stripperiffic: It's right there in the show's title — they fight in lingerie.
Think of the Censors: In the first episode of "New Season," Papillon Rose is about to do her "Pinky Vibrator" attack from the more hentai-themed OVA, but Rama stops her before she can say the full name, claiming that the censors won't allow them to do that anymore.
