Kojima seeks to befriend the class outcast, and soon learns of Nakahara's troubled family life - of his uncaring, abusive father and mentally unstable mother. As Kojima yearns to somehow comfort Nakahara, he gradually becomes aware that his feelings for the other boy arise from more than mere sympathy. When Nakahara declares his own romantic feelings for Kojima, their relationship becomes one of sexual exploration as they face their first steps into adulthood together.
I concur to the other reviewers of this story. Truly a beautiful, well written and drawn storyline about young/first love. The main characters complement each other so well, you fall in love with them so much as you read this beautiful tale. This is a long one, and worth reading every page. You will get emotional as the storyline delves into some dark and painful flashbacks, but works out so beautifully as you know these two find happiness in the future with each other. I really loved this one and highly recommend it!
"Little Butterfly" is a beautiful story about a boy named Koujima who befriends Nakahara, a classmate of his. Nakahara is a true loner who enjoys keeping to himself, but Koujima soon attempts to break him out of his shell. Koujima soon realizes that he has softened Nakahara's heart so much that he has made him fall in love with him! This adorable tale of first love, overcoming a cruel childhood, and learning to grow and work through the obstacles of adolescence is as bittersweet as it is truly beautiful. I would recommend this gripping tale about growing up together with somebody you love to anyone who enjoys a sweet romance. There is not much smut to be found here, but there is a lot of heart that you will remember for years to come. This story is what got me hooked on yaoi in the first place, and I assure you that it will leave a soft space in your heart for years to come!
Little Butterfly is one of the best school-based yaoi/BL manga I've read. I'm usually a men-in-suits girl, so I was pleasantly surprised by this sweet little manga title. The angst to fluff ratio is quite good and I didn't find myself cringing at any corny lines. Perhaps I just missed them.
I thought the character design of the uke (Kojima) to be nothing exciting but the seme (Nakahara) is refreshingly beautiful. Nakahara's eyes are really intense in some scenes and I practically fell in love looking at them!
The characters personalities were a breath of fresh air. Kojima started off sweet and naive (like so many ukes before him) but developed into quite a strong, perceptive character who was quick to aid Nakahara in any way he could. Nakahara, who was once angsty and withdrawn (*sigh*), begins to open up to Kojima's offer of friendship and gradually reveals his gentler and more affectionate side.
The plot doesn't feel overly original but the relationship development between Kojima and Nakahara makes up for it. If you don't mind waiting a bit for any 'action', that is. The first volume is more shounen-ai than yaoi, but as the chapters go on and the love between the two boys grow, they open up to each other's advances more and more. If memory serves me correct, their first time is initiated by the uke! There is also no forced sex in this manga (something I hadn't really come across since starting on the hard yaoi XD) and their tenderness towards each other is rather beautiful.
