- Disowned Adaptation: In his regular column on Newtype, the creator stated that he hated the New Season adaption, because this was not his version of Papillon Rose. This probably has to do with the production completely stripping off the naughty elements of the original fanfiction and ignoring it's "second season", changing the story's setting and removing the characters' original personalities.
- Bad Export for You: Due to legal problems and a troubled production (see below), all international releases of the series were censored.
- Executive Meddling / Troubled Production: The OVA 2003 had no legal problem in order to be released on DVD, but what about the TV series? Here's a summary:
- There were originally supposed to be six episodes of the 2003 OVA series, but for some reason, the creator had stated in the BBS Board that the project was reduced to one episode after the first OVA episode was released.
- When the television series premiered in 2006, the opening and ending replaced with the OVA OP/ED for legal reasons. Risqué scenes were also censored. Censorship is such that even the opening and ending credits were censored.
- Eventually the series was released on DVD uncensored with the official opening and ending... until chapter 3. The DVD release was canceled after.
- In 2007, the producers decided to release the DVD-BOX. They no longer have the original masters (or can't use) of the series, so they had to rely on the videos from the censored TV release.
- Keep Circulating the Tapes: The cancelled DVD uncensored release. If you know where you find, you can buy the first three uncensored episodes. Since it's an 2006 series, it's very cheap. On the Internet, you can find the three episodes, but in low quality.
- Name's the Same: A Magical Girl protagonist who wears pink and is named Tsubomi. Are we talking about Papillon Rose or Cure Blossom?
- No Export for You: All the supplementary material that was released on the Comiket (The Other Wiki mentions: a promotional clip, a soundtrack CD, a mahjong game and screensavers) never left Japan.
- Retroactive Recognition: Minoboshi Taro, the creator and illustrator of the whole Papillon Rose franchise became most well known as the character designer for Love Plus.
