Episode List

1- "Akiba wa moete iru ka!?" ("Is Akiba Blooming?!")


Airdate: February 9, 2006

The episode begins with a flashback scene of the three Papillon solders motionless, prone and bruised from battle in a dark area. Regina Apis is glowering over them, laughing. The three prone Papillon solders join hands to empower Papillon Rose with enough energy to finally destroy Regina Apis. The scene then jumps to one year later with the "Men in Black" discussing the present situation with a Venusian woman who tells them that the invasion of the Earth will begin at a place called "Akiba" and the only ones that can stop the invasion are the "Papillon Solders". Tsubomi, once also known as Papillon Rose, now works at the New Papillon maid cafe and spa in Akiba and is the most popular server. Anne, once also known as Papillon Lily, is enjoying the single life. Shizuku, once also known as Papillon Margarette, is studying for college entrance exams. Due to the shock of the final battle, they have completely forgotten their magical-girl identities and events. Rama has been struggling for survival on the streets and looks it. The scene cuts to the bridge of an alien space ship where three female aliens are discussing how the "Haniwa" (people of Earth) have defiled their "holy land" and how they must reclaim it. Lacking weapons, they decide to rely on the "forgotten ones" for battle. They scour Japan from the sky and gather them up. Rama finds Tsubomi at the maid cafe and attempts communication but Tsubomi cannot understand Rama's talk as it only sounds like "meows" to her. During Rama's attempt to communicate with Tsubomi the sky darkens and a space ship appears. The aliens then begin their attack by landing their first creature, a large, ape-like monster "Tsuchinogon". The monster begins his explosive attack and the explosions draw near. Rama stimulates Tsubomi (off camera) and the excitement causes Tsubomi to remember her magical-girl identity and past events. She then transforms to her "Papillon Rose" persona. Dark General Miki appears and is immediately envious of the beautiful Rose and orders the Tsuchinogon to attack her directly. Rose is quickly outmatched and attempts to use her weapon from the battle with Sister Biene but Rama says that she must use something else (more acceptable for television broadcast). Rose finds a small toy sword and infuses it with her "spirit". She then slices Tsuchinogon a few times stopping his attack but he then gropes her breast paralyzing her. Tsuchinogon is suddenly hit in the arm with a nunchuck by a mysterious masked ninja that identifies himself as "Torakage". Freed, Tsubomi then attacks Tsuchinogon while he is temporarily stunned and breaks the spell over him with a blown kiss. Tsuchinogon decomposes into a small monkey and a tiny snake. Dark General Miki, defeated and furious, withdraws, but vows to return. The mysterious ninja Torakage also disappears.

Tsubomi then speaks to Anne and tries to get Anne to remember the past also without success. Meanwhile the Dark sisters scheme the next attack with the Dark Adviser seeking the warrior "G. Baba" but he no linger lives so she steals something from a museum. Tsubomi calls Anne and Shizuku by cell phone but neither answer. The city is then suddenly attacked by the Dark General Miki's new minion who starts his rampage by throwing cars and delivery vehicles around. Tsubomi transforms into Papillon Rose much to the delight of the otaku spectators and even the monster cheers. Rose punches him in the stomach but he is protected by a plastron. He then knocks Rose off her feet and she quickly releases that she is outmatched and needs a weapon. Anne and Shizuku witness Rose's struggles against the superior bellowing monster. A white cloth falls between the combatants and the monster stops and walks away. The cloth was dropped from above by Torakage who then carries away the unconscious Rose. Anne and Shizuku reunite with Rama and their memories return. They quickly transform into their Papillon forms to attack the monster, but are overpowered. Together they bind the monster and Rose's power breaks the spell decomposing the monster into a tiny kappa and a pair of old gym shoes (which Dark Adviser stole from the G. Baba museum display case). Dark General Miki, furious, again withdraws in defeat, but vows to return. Anne and Shizuku start work as servers at New Papillon maid cafe, much to the delight of the three otaku friends.

The manager suggests to the otaku using semaphore flags to contact the others in the city. Sparky is confused by the semaphore flag waving parade of otaku presenting him with communications he cannot understand and collapses. He is "rebooted" by Miki and proceeds to defeat the Papillon team again. Then Torakage appears on a the roof of a building beating a large drum. The otaku wave their flags in unison and again paralyze the monster. This gives the Papillon team a chance to attack and finally defeat the monster.

Tsubomi is depressed so Anne and Shizuku take her to Sakumaya where they meet two of the otaku gang who themselves are attending a memorial for Papillon Dahlia.

Meanwhile at New Papillon the Dark sister Miki and a mysterious shrouded woman show up, attack the manager and terrify the otaku customers. The three women transform into Papillons for battle.
