Urh. I don't know really what to think of this. I've never really liked King arcs, they always get awkward and odd. I'm not a big fan of the Celestial stuff either. And the name of the arc, "Heaven's Not Enough" doesn't exactly sound that good.

But hey, It's my Birthday, and I get the start of a big arc, so yay!

OH SHIIIIP! KINGS GETTIN' SUPER CEREAL!!!!
Please tell me I'm not the only one who imagined an epic explosion after the last line of panel 4.

EDIT: Also, just noticed that the title of this strip is "Chain of Memories". +10 epic points :D

Yeah, you tell that overgrown turkey whats-what King.

This is the arc I've been both at the edge of my seat, and dreading, all year. Time to see how this plays out.

I almost thought that floating island for a moment there was underwear. Dreaming about underwear is a human thing.

I'm not a big fan of King arcs, but I do want to see how this works out in the end. I'm fairly certain King has a bad habit of assuming or trying to call out things without realizing just to what extent Pete can go. I'm also wondering if my prediction will happen and that Joel and King will be two separate entities.

I feel that "Pigeon" is the funnier choice for some reason. xD I can just imagine pigeon-Pete conversing with King and looking very, very unhappy about his predicament.

"Heaven's not Enough" is the opening track to the second Wolf's Rain soundtrack.

Let's hope this arc ends more happily than that anime.

Yeah I think staying off this arc until its done will result in a better reading experience, but Rick did say this would be a LONG arc, so long that he's gonna have to split it, with one-off intervals in between. I don't think I could survive so long without housepets though...
Gahhh the last thing I need right now is a super depressing story. Please let there be a happy ending.

I sure hope this arc marks the end of the whole cosmic game subplot, can't say I enjoyed watching cosmic nerds bickering.
Also, that pocketwatch sure does have an amazing battery life. Its been what, three years?

I think Pheasant starts with an "f" sound such that Pete will get the message and intent. However I suspect Pete's used to receiving such language and will be non-plussed about the whole thing. Then again, Do you think King is about to rattle the celestial birdcage a little?

It seems that kings secret may be spilled at a point in time in this arc. As so it seems, I'm not saying it will.

I really have a feeling this is just going to end with both of them somehow losing and Dragon and Petes whole thing just not being resolved at all. Lets face it having Pete and Keene win is pretty unlikely considering what massive changes that would bring to the whole Housepets earth. If Pete wins I have a feeling it will be a thing were it will take years to happen and we never seen any of their plans come to pass making the whole thing rather pointless in the long run.

This whole thing is about King and his struggle. Pete, Dragon, Kitsune and their dumb little game and what it means is likely to end up being pointless in the end and amount to nothing. Pete wins and it changes thing far to much to much for Rick to write the comic the way he has been, or its going to end up taking for ever to happen and be rather pointless anyway for us. Its unlikely Rick will get to that point in the story. Dragon wins and ummm nothing changes from what I remember, shes not playing for anything world changing from what I recall.
Well, that would assume that Status Quo Is God, which may well not be the case. The game ending could cause major problems for any number of characters - Peanut might not end up with Tarot anymore at that point, for instance, which would disrupt all sorts of other things, and there's also the fact that if Dragon lost, she would become mortal... well, that would further complicate the whole Peanut situation.

Honestly I'd love to see Pete actually win, but it would probably either be the end of the comic, or presage a major shift in it. But it is a huge part of the plot; your argument against it is a bit silly, given that, you know, the whole human-pet conflict is a kind of big part of the world.

Well, most importantly is that the equivocation of animals and humans thing is not the point of Pete and Dragon's duel. That's more of a side project of Pete's. Dragon and Pete's duel simply determines the outcome of a dispute between them in another game they are playing.
Furthermore after the game is over, will Pete be able to continue his influence in our universe, or will he have to leave the equivocation where it is? We don't know that one. So, Pete's victory may not actually have any more consequence for the world than Dragon's.

OK.
1. Isn't Chain of Memories a Kingdom Hearts game?
2. I love the new banner.
3. The art looks a bit different.
And finally, 4. Is this the arc where King reveals his devastating secret?

All of Pete's motivations are suspect, all the way down to the "animal equality" thing. Because he didn't say "equality", he said "equivocation":

e·quiv·o·ca·tion /iˌkwivəˈkāSHən/

noun: equivocation; plural noun: equivocations

1. the use of ambiguous language to conceal the truth or to avoid committing oneself; prevarication.

They can't team up. As far as I remember, the participants are cats or dogs only. That's why King was turned into... um... King in the first place.

Alright, barring shenangans, it doesnt look like King is going to become Supercorgi, even temporarally. (Dark paladin strength and speed bonuses) That rules out a delaying tactic, so this is almost certiantly the final showdown.

As far as "Status Quo is god" is concerned, best case is Pete loses/surrenders and becomes a woodland animal, and Dragon sticks around because she likes Peanut/max/Pete's new form. King's fate lets him stay as a dog, Tarot keeps her powers for the duration of a "Hapilly ever after" (dont you love subjective time?) and Keene keeps working toward equality.
Alternatively, Pete loses, and is never head from again, and dragon leaves and is never heard from again.

Here it came. This is going to be crucial for King's story, I hope everything will be fine with accepted Joel's dog life. Time's running out, the fate decided to him by Pete may over now, right when it shouldn't anymore... Yeah King, your truth is so heavy to bear and so hard to confess to your dear love and friends. What can happen if it'll be unleashed? Fido unleashed his totally different own, how's he paying the confession?
What a lovely dream. :D Shame that's interrupted so abruptly. :|
