Mino Tarou announced on Twitter on October 1st that there is a new Papilon Rose domain. Here is the link:
There must still be hope for the new art book!
I have some sad news. Mino Tarou replied to someone on twitter that the Papillon Rose movie 1 was intended to be one project and he has no plans to continue it. https://mobile.twitter.com/mino_taro/status/746780033826492416Read more >
Hello, long time no talk.
Recently, I was searching an anime called Tokyo Mew Mew and I couldn't help but notice that the chokers oddly resemble the ones for the ONA series a little bit. It came out in 2000, a year before Papillon Rose so it could've probably influenced the design for that series?
What do you all think?Read more >
Wow, it's been a while. I am finally done with my job for now and while my thesis still isn't over, there is plenty of time for me to contribute here.
So, I got to cleanup my scans of the Rebuild artbook. They are not the best quality as there is some grain from the scanning, but it is well better than nothing. I'll be sharing some renders of the pictures in there so that we have more character pics from rebuild. Also, I'll try to cleanup some more the only picture of Adonis and Lupinus in there as it's their only appearance s far.Read more >
I found a translated version of the Cutie Honey manga from the 1960s that is by Yuu Okazaki in Nakayoshi magazine. There are a few chapters.

Well, it's been over a year since the rebuild was announced and a few months since the site shut down. Recently, Sailor Moon Crystal Season 3 has been slated for spring release and it makes me wonder if Mino Tarou will do the next one in summer Comiket. What are your thoughts?
I myself hope that he will do the second one as well as restocking the first archive and maybe actually get to see some animation.
Also, since I can't talk on the blog due to the computer issues, Vanmak, the recent one you put in the Parodies to Other anime page, the Oh My Godess one, I don't think it parodies it because they look slightly different. Also, i could tell it was from a page, since it looks cut off, may I see the whole page and if there are other pages, ma…Read more >
I have been watching two very good animation series while working and finishing up my studies, Oniisama e and Rose of Versailles both by Riyoko Ikeda, and their opening songs are probably both referenced in the soundtracks.
The opening of Rose of Versailles has very similar cues to Bara no Priere. And the opening of Oniisama, I don't know how, but it reminds me of the Genesis track in the second soundtrack.
I'll definitely add the reference to Rose of Versailles with musical cues when I can because it is the clearest reference to that, but not very sure about the Genesis track, maybe it's just me.Read more >
I recently was on twitter, browsing some Papillon Rose posts, and I found this post that said that Papillon Rose was F**kin hilarious. It then led me to this
This person obviosuly seems to be a Sailor Moon addict and seems to get a lot of facts wrong about Papillon Rose. First of all, Papillon Rose is a parody, not a troll anime. Second, Hikaru is not a rapist. He is actually Tsubomi's lover, he was just under the spell of Regina Apis. She also says that shinji traced pics in Papillon Rose G, which I don't think he did, he stopped after R I think.
I know everyone has opinions, but I think that this person was trying to turn it into facts. It really ticks me off. I thought those trolls were gone after Papillon Rose ended, but they are still s…Read more >
As it seems, the domain expired :(.
The shop and the blog are still up though.Read more >
From the picture in Mino Tarou's column acticle.
"Papillon Rose Treasure Hall of Secrets"
"The illusionary Papillon Rose!"
"What did you say, this is the first drawn picture of Papillon Rose"
"For example I attempted drawing the pictures in the animation director position for the official homepage's story introduction"
"Character Setteis Yo!"
"New ones due to the theatrical version Papillon Rose G"
"DVD announcement of the TV version. Apparently the company went bankrupt in the middle of the releases and for that reason the final ones weren't released."
and a TL: パピヨンローゼ秘宝館 is the na…Read more >
Shinji Tobita revealed his identity. He is MinoTarou! And my mind just exploded.
...I really need to find some time to sit on my ass and translate everything in there lol. As far as I can understand his drawing style influence for Papillon Rose was Sakura Wars and he hated the New Season series.
It's also quite ironic how his first major work is listed as the art for Tokimeki Memorial online...when he drew vulgar caricatures of two of the main characters from those games back in Papillon Rose R xD.
He was listed as the character designer in Rebuild but I would never think he is actually the mastermind behind all. Again, holy cow.
He says the domain for Papillonrose.moe will expire soon... sighRead more >
Since this was a thing that was also bugging the LiveJournal community, I'll try to explain why some stuff are spelled the way they are.
- Dinasty: it is spelled with an "i" because of the romanisation of the featured katakana (ディナスティ - Dinasuti). The subtitled version by Maiden Japan spells it "Dynasty", but the official romanisation in the rebuild brochure spells it "Dinasty".
-Gel Dynasty: it is spelled with a "y" again due to the katakana in the R mook (ゲルーダイナスティ- Geru Dainasuti). the Rupdate and shop feature katakana similar to Dinasty(ディナスティ), and the G update of the site features the Dynasty spelling.
-Dhalia: the "h" in the name's spelling is purely because of the spelling in the R mook and onwards. Enigmapoeia in the LJ community use…Read more >
