Otome(おとめ) is a fake monthly magazine supposedly published in selected bookstores for 420 Gil. Its demographic is described as shoujo.
The supposed manga series was claimed to have been finished in 19 chapters by the time the anime version was announced through the official website.
The two doujinshi artbooks have the "Otome Deluxe" text written on the top right corner. This possibly implies that they were supposedly published through a "Deluxe" version of the Otome magazine.
Further implications for the first artbook are given through the otome magazine cover featured as a commercial image, implying it is from the 8th issue (9th issue is advertised) and it was published in 2000-2001.
- This magazine is a parody of Nakayoshi, which the original Sailor Moon manga was serialized in due to the structure
