Trivia [edit | edit source]
- Regina Apis is a parody of the villain in the magical girl series, especially Sailor Moon as Queen Beryl
- An attack "The World's Sexual energy" is listed in the Papillon Rose archive, with no further information on it.
- in the new season she appears in the memories of Tsubomi. Yuki Masuda, her voice actress in the OVA reprises her role.
- Her name translates into "Queen Bee". This is fitting to the heavenly queens, which are named after bees in multiple languages.
- Her name in the Papillon Rose archive is spelled Regina "Avis" when translated in romaji. While probably a typo, it is interesting to note that "Avis" is a word for "bird" in latin, the language where "apis" means bee. With the overall sex-related plot of the series, it may be related to the phrase "...the birds and the bees and flowers...", considering all the heavenly queens are named after bees and the Papillon soldiers after flowers.
- In the manga version, she is simply referred to as Regina.
- In the rebuild version, she is renamed "Eddie of Choipai" and her motivations and goals are different. "Choipai" when re-written to kanji can be read as "Magnificent breasts" or "Butterfly breasts".
