Life a Little’s slice-of-life romance visual novel, A Butterfly in the District of Dreams (originally titled Dare ka ga Koi Shita Hankagai, or Darekoi for short), has been released by Sekai Project! First released in Japan in 2013, Darekoi is set in a town named Olive Village, which happens to be paradoxically old-fashioned and refreshingly new. Further confounding regular perception, time seems to not pass at all beyond the course of a regular day. Thus our protagonist, Yumesaki Haruki, strays from the university path and partakes of the story of Olive Village and its residents.
