Plot Summary: Little Butterfly begins with Kojima and Nakahara, high-school classmates who barely know each other, but feel an interest in each other. Nakahara being reserved and reluctant to engage in any kind of interaction, Kojima takes it upon himself, in a bright, enthusiastic, youthful way, to attract Nakahara's attention and develop a friendship. Nakahara resists at first, but Kojima's persistence wins him a confidence of Nakahara's difficult home life and his desire to run away and feel free, like a migrating butterfly, hence the title. The rest of the story develops the relationship of Nakahara and Kojima from friends to lovers, and also Nakahara's quest for freedom
