my theory is: akira died, ruri made a time machine because he's a scientist prodigy, and pure made the trip because she wants to spend time with akira, kinda subtly telling you, akira is not gonna survive whatever it is that killed her.

This series is really good at keeping me guessing. I hope it'll have the same element of suspense even when rereading the completed work.

I was thinking about why this chapter hit home, and realized it's because Akira's been assuming Pure is some form of delusional, though genuinely enthusiastic, stalker, and dismissing her feelings. But now she can't ignore that those feelings are real. I really like how there's a natural follow-through between the knowledge that we've seen Pure swear utter devotion to Akira but still played her excitement for laughs, to this inevitable consequence, where she's hurt and trying to not be hurt. It's fantastic when authors treat their characters as people.

Agreed, but isn't Ruri making the time machine right now as a kid, after his mother's death?

My experience is not surprising. I mean the author did much throw a lot of clues, cues and baselinings... like the hamburger steak which Pure made and Ruri's comment after tasting it. That suggested, Ruri and Pure knew each other( but not in depth ). So, it was a matter of time that the author will show this.

Yes, for me, Ruri started building this already as suggested by the panels that Ruri was talking to a person over the internet.


I liked surprises. Not that kind of surprise where the author didn't even open-end it but just made an incoherent, out of nowhere representation. I want surprises that can make me say, "Oh, woooow! How come I didn't think of that?" And I've found a lot of gems here in Dynasty...

Are the scenes (intentionally) out of order? Do the events of chapter 6 happen immediately before the end of chapter 5? :thinking:

I'm enjoying this series a lot. I have a feeling that something probably happened in the future that led Pure to go back, because why would she if everything is all right in her future? Like, maybe Akira died or something. It's just a wild guess, but I think it's plausible.

Also, I like the theory that Ruri is making the time machine, being a science prodigy that he is.

New chapter is out, oh dear.

Biggest developments are:

- Akira is starting to like Pure even more, despite her initial distaste in the idea of loving someone else. In this chapter, we see that Akira has become more comfortable with Pure. When Pure tries to go home, Akira invites her to a sleepover instead. She also laments over the idea that despite becoming "kiss friends", they didn't get to kiss at all the entire day. At the end of the chapter, she remains blissfully ignorant of Pure's slightly distant behavior.

- Meanwhile, we see that while Akira was out of the house, Pure and Ruri had a discussion where Ruri revealed that he knew Pure came back from the future. He asks Pure why she came back, but we see that Ruri already knows the answer: because Akira had died sometime in the future. Pure wants Ruri's help in saving Akira from her demise. In response, Ruri asks Pure if she knows what he's done with a certain something (unrevealed). She says that she does, and that she knows of his failures too. Ruri is more or less intrigued, but drops the subject. He challenges Pure by telling her if she does anything now, something will definitely change in the future. He takes his leave, but not before asking her this: "You say that my older sister is your fiancee, but are you sure your memory is correct?"

- Pure has a headache the entire time she's over at Akira's house, much to the latter's concern. Pure takes some medicine for her headache, but while Akira is sound asleep, Pure suddenly recalls that while she did confess to Akira, the latter actually turned her down, saying that she only sees Pure as a friend. The chapter ends with Pure crying next to a sleeping Akira.

FIRST KISS UNLOCKED
