Gotcha! HARVEY was caught!
His contact lens was blocking Harvey from his sight and hearing! *laughs*
This is a joke based off of a real world belief. It is said that the dogs who have two colored eyes can see the living with one eye and the dead with the other. Since both eye were blue, the living, Kade couldn’t see the dead,Harvey. When he removed the contact, Kade could once again see the dead with his red eye, the dead.
Kade has different coloured eyes? OHMYGODHELOOKSSOMUCHCOOLER
On a side note; I’m eagerly awaiting all the people who are going to ask how 1 contact lens stops you from seeing / hearing Harvey :b
Nicole has brown eyes. Rick has yellow eyes. Kade has a blue eye and a blue-tinted contact lens on the other. I think the intended implication is that Harvey cannot be seen through blue eyes.
I think That it is more “I cannot be seen in false sight.” deal. It would probably be the same if he had glasses which he used to see.
If that were the case, then Nicole wouldn’t be able to see him at all. And Kade can’t see him through his normal eye, either.
you have a point… maybe it had to do with whatever made the lens turn red?
Or Death perception?
An animated version of the exclamation sign would be awesome. :3
I REALLY wanted to do that, but it’s not the same without the sound effect!
maybe if you were to get a couple people to act out heir voices of the characters in a Youtube video?
I’m ALL for doing some VA work!! ^^
I’d voice Harvey for you~
OP contact lens is OP….also how are there “people” in this comic XD
Are you implying that non-humans aren’t people?
To be techincal, yes, non-humans aren’t people. By definiton they can’t be (people-human beings).
To be non-technical: I don’t like going around calling things what they aren’t. A dog isn’t human, neither is a lizard or a bunny from **** sent to reap the souls of the damned. A human isn’t any of those either.
There is no human being in this comic , only anthros
Hmm, technically I have to agree. However, seeing how they walk on their hind legs, and speak, talk and think like humans, I’d prefer calling them humans rather than animals.
This feels like it might branch out to a political discussion
Compromise: Non-human people.
@Aescula I see what you did there.
To be honest, an anthro dog is closer to a human being than to a feral, non-talking dog, so I don’t think calling anthros “people” in a world where only anthros exist would be too much of a stretch. They do act and think like people after all
The term “anthro” means : animal on two legs , a sort of human like animal
So , they follows the same evolution : able to speak because the new pose of the head/throat freeing the requested organ ; and their front paws evolves to hands
How would we even know if they know what people are? They could have a different term for it.
“Humans” are a fictional being. When Kade plays Super Mario he’s playing as a short Italian human.
>.> <.< Humans are animals just so everyone knows
as we are not plants
Since humans only exist in fiction in this world the word “people” would take on the meaning of “a collection or group of beings.” Referring to all the different species that exist in the world.
well even if humans existed in that world or if anthropomorphic animals existed in our they would still be (except for racist people) called PEOPLE.
***** you that’s how
So he take off the contact and now he can hear Harvey XD
An eye that can see the dead? XD
Huh, this answers ONE of these questions. Is he also tone deaf too? I mean sure he wasn’t able to see Harvey with BOTH of his eyes but I’m sure he heard something from’em. Probably muffled whispers or some other.
Nice. Now Kade can see Harvey, and instantly he puts the entire Solar System (with all life on Earth, Mars, Europa and Enceladus) in jeopardy.
awwwww i love so much this comic <3
To people yapping about his ability to see Harvey influencing his ability to hear him:
Does noone consider the option that, since Harvey is obviously supernatural being, he might not really “talk” in the physical sense.
He might be talking telepathically and being able to hear that could be conditioned by being able to see him?
Question is if others were able to hear him while turned with their back to him. I dunno.
Or the contact lens simply blocks telepathy in general, maybe Harvey is also “visible telepathically”, eyes are, after all, direct extension of brain. That would also explain why he didnt see him with the other eye at least…
Are you telling me
Kade couldn’t see Harvey
Also I need to name a Cubone Harvey if I ever play another Pokemon game.
i think Harvey has a odd rule where only amber eyes can see him (note how both Nicole and Rick have amber eyes and can see him fine) and any thing that make them another colour (such as a cosmetic lens) makes him invisible to them so his lens fell out his eye was the “right” colour again and poof he sees Harvey only explanation i can think of for him never seeing Harvey with his left eye
But , the lawyer hasn’t amber eyes and he was able to see Harvey :
ah could also be that blue eyes can’t see him
No one else is curious about why his contact was red in the first place? Back to Nicole’s question: “How did you get your contact to glow red?”
He’s adopted. He was originally born in Japan and came from a long line of dogs owned by a family called themselves part of an ‘Uchiha Clan’.
That’s just another thing nobody is supposed to talk about, though.
xD Kade Uchiha. Is he eventually going to turn into an emo revenge driven *******?
Kade put his contact(s) in the wrong eye. he put his blue one on his eye blue/brown and his color balancing one in the other or something…now you’ve confused me, and it made sense in my head.
But Kade says that “its only one colored lens”.
Yeah, Kade’s got one tan and one blue eye. The contact colors the tan eye blue.
^ that’s what I was going for.
I’m guessing that it’s all part of an elaborate scheme. It’s actually not red but crimson, and that crimson is the same crimson as Harvey’s eyes when he make them glow. Also! Rick is not a lizard, he’s a hairless chinchilla…that is cold blooded… that’s right I just blew your mind
it seems that the contact was irritating the eye and made it red. that is what they do sometimes
how did he get it to glow red though?
Maybe he couldn’t hear Harvey because he couldnt see him therefor didnt “notice” him speaking.
Have you ever been talking to another person while someone else was trying to get your attention? But you didnt see them, and didnt hear them. Because you didnt NOTICE them.
I imagine its the same sort of thing, just on a more drastic scale. Once he “noticed” Harvey, he was able to hear him.
I know of this phenomenon. It was discussed in “Life, the Universe and Everything,” which is part of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series. This phenomenon is called an SEP or Somebody Else’s Problem.
Here’s a quote from the book, “An SEP is something we can’t see, or don’t see, or our brain doesn’t let us see, because we think that it’s somebody else’s problem…. The brain just edits it out, it’s like a blind spot. If you look at it directly you won’t see it unless you know precisely what it is. Your only hope is to catch it by surprise out of the corner of your eye.”
6 x 9 = 42
No one tells jokes in base 13.
it’s actually 69… Sorry tim
need to have like button for this
Wait, this may sound very dumb, but how did he get his contact to glow red all of a sudden? Am I missing something obvious?
Woah, more people started wondering the same thing suddenly.
Oh well, at last now I don’t feel dumb anymore.
Okay so what kind of a contact lens is THAT? Forget about it blocking Harvey, Kitch’s blue eye idea is great for that, but HOW on Earth does it glow? O_o
Mistaken for a Pokemon, this must be a new low for an elder god…
Oh well, just sit back and play Dr Mario… on hard mode.
Great comic this week! I’m loving this series.
Kade’s got HETEROCHROMIA IRIDIUM
I like how you sneaked that in, many furries have sonas with different colored eyes
When I designed Kade I kept going back and forth between tan and blue. So I thought this would be a fun little quirk.
I’ve still yet to meet anyone with that “quirk” tho
I have a cat like that. Actually the second eye has two colors simultaneously. Yellow and brown, Part of the iris is yellow, and part of it is brown. And as she has gotten older, the brown part has slowly gotten bigger.
surprising to note for a long time we thought that was impossible in humans, but now its noted as occurring in less than 1/5 percent of the world population. a percentage so small many biologists still refuse to believe its possible through natural means.
!!! Just like Natani now!
That last panel is absolutely adorable!
Was that a TwoKinds reference? :V
Yes! another person got my reference
What do you mean? Natanis eyes always have the same color. His eyes only apear to be grey, if his soul is not or not completly in his body, becouse the eyes are the windows to the soul.
I just meant eye resemblance physically, I know the soul part of Natani’s curse. Kade has a full soul so far as I know.
except Natani is WAY smarter……….. sorry Kade ^^;;
Well, when she is in a non coma state, yes. Right now, not so much…
…The light phobic Harvey threatens to get close enough to the sun to collapse it? I’m pretty sure that’s a failed bluff check right there…
Well Harvey does have al the time in the world. It just has to wait long enough and it’ll happen.
Maybe Harvey is using some kind of power on Kade which causes his contact to glow. Notice the black lines leading directly toward Kade’s eye.
Also black lines appear to be used frequently as a sign of action or movement in this comic. Just my interpretation.
So I wonder if wearing amber contacts would allow blue-eyed people to see Harvey…
Wait, he wears the contact lens because they teased him that his eyes were different colors? But he doesn’t wear one that makes them look the same?
Kade wears one blue lens to cover his tan eye. As for why it appears red in panel two – that’s a secret!
Tell us nao! *whines*
Nao ………………………….. ^_^
xD that eye reminds me of D.gray-man
If I was Kade’s classmate I would hang with him just to compliment his heterochromia. One of my favorite design quirks.
And I’m pretty sure Harvey made the contact glow but a small scrap of me wants to say that Kade is secretly Terminator.
I think Harvey is in trouble now
Not sure which I like better: Kade’s mismatched eyes, or his reaction to Harvey
Yes, he can see Harvey now. I guess having one ROB eye was the requirement for him to see Harvey.
I loved his reaction, it was perfect. And I did ask the question about floating objects a few times to myself.
It is also great to learn that Kade has contacts.
Love his eyes.
I don’t think any of you seriously considered that Kade may well have a CYBERNETIC right eye-shades of the terminator….:)
You know you need help when you see a red eye and instantly think “Sharingan.” On a side note… Hooray! New page! And it’s great.
Wow. A single contact was what was keeping him from perceiving Harvey? Also, just the fact that he uses a contact to hide his eyes was a surprise. He does look rather cool with two colors.
It must suck to be Harvey. He’s too adorable for his own good.
eye did not see that one coming
*smashes vase over your head* -.-get out
I don’t understand : Kade’s eyes were “normal” in the previous strip (even with contacts) and now one of them turns red glow ?
Then being wearing one contact , OK ; but how he couldn’t see Harvey from the other eye ?
Heterochromia is generally a blue eye and a green one . Kade is very rare ^^
Now , Kade is fallen in love with Harvey . When they’ll get to be married ? LOL
I can’t comment on how rare it is, but it does happen. About have way down this page http://color.ashgi.org/color/aussie_eye_color.htm is a picture of a blue merle with amber/blue eyes. They even comment that a red litter mate would likely have amber eyes, just like Nicole. :3
Thumb up ^^
This is a joke based off of a real world belief. It is said that the dogs who have two colored eyes can see the living with one eye and the dead with the other. Since both eye were blue, the living, Kade couldn’t see the dead,Harvey. When he removed the contact, Kade could once again see the dead with his red eye, the dead. I am suprized not many people know this.
I’m basically saying the contact cut of his connection to the dead, a.k.a. Kade’s red eye.
It’s just a belief/rumor . Or else , Nicole and Rick , with their two living eyes , wouldn’t be able to see Harvey ^^
Then Kade has a blue eye and one brown , not red
Why are we arguing about a world with antropomoric animals who play video games with a ghost rabbit skull thing.
Because… it’s the internet? :3
Because we’re in the twilight zone ^^
*insert Buzzlightyear* Theories, theories everywhere.
Buzz , buzz
If you did another part of this comic only seeing through Kade’s eyes (His point of view) it would explain things better.
Panel one he looks at the hoodie and controler, panel three he responds to Nicole’s comment and starts to take his contact out, panel four you see the contact in his hand, panel four Harvey starts to come into focus.
Don’t forget – Kade states the controller is sitting on the hoodie and he’s fighting a CPU instead of another player. So it’s deeper than what he can or can’t see.
Well then. He’s going to be very confused when he closes one eye and Harvey disappears.
I thought Kade could not see Harvey because his mind filtered him out (because of fear, disbelief, ect.) So why, when he finally see’s him, he is not in shock? the only reason i can explain is because the hoodie makes him look like something familiar (cuebone) he can accept it. So when he takes the hoodie off will he disappear again or stay?
Yea , Tim has tricked us ^^
Kade isn’t shocked by Harvey cause he’s lightly immature . XD
well i was thinking, if he isn’t shocked, then why could’nt he see it the whole time?
A nice example of Kade’s immature behaviour
For the love of 8 bit ^^
That statement was from Harvey. The same creature who claims to be an elder god and have the power to end time.
xD true true
Well, now we know that Harvey sounds like Meowth. I guess I’d better reread all the previous strips.
*shudder* Worst ghost voice EVER. I’ve always thought of Harvey’s voice as having a kind or eerie echo to it, hence the grey speech balloon.
Now I can’t stop thinking of Harvey with the voice of Meowth. xD
While I have run across “red eye” in photography, I’m more than a bit curious about how it can actually glow brightly enough to be seen in a well lit room. Methinks that there is an interesting story there..
But wait, in the flashbacks where Kade was a pup both his eyes were already blue…he must have been wearing that blue lens all his life :O
Not that it matters though, he’s even cuter this way!
Kade started wearing his contact when he was young. That’s why Rick doesn’t know even though they’ve been friends throughout most of elementary school.
The real tell is this http://www.savestatecomic.com/2014/11/experience/ Waking up in the early morning, too groggy to even put on his collar, but you’re only ever shown his natural blue left eye. :3
Gonna have to change his eye on the icon now =I
so explain why his contact was the only thing preventing him from seeing him
That would be telling. :3 You’ll have to wait for the next comic.
It’s because lens are dangerous items : Kade’s one is pressing on his eye and the resulting headache is disconnecting his brain from reality
It’s why Kade needs to play games all the time : the console keeps him alive ^^
Heh , what : mad argument ? Yes , i’m a nutty mad person LOL
…and I forgot to add this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2P5qbcRAXVk
So wait, if Kade is only able to see with his contact out, that means he’s seeing a sort of “half-there” Harvey. Like, put your hand out over one eye and you’ll see through it AND see it. Basically, Harvey is at 50% translucency.
Also, did Rick’s car just get ditched, or what?
explain the hand thing again
Okay, cover one eye like Kade does in panel 3. Then hold that hand out directly away from your face a half foot or so.
Like this, sorta:
i = Eye looking forward
H = Hand
GHAOSDBAS Disregard that diagram. Stupid formatting.
I tried to fix the diagram for you.
Look at an icon on your desktop. Open/close one eye at a time and position your hand so one eye can see the icon and the other eye can only see your hand. When you open both eyes you’ll be able to see your hand and the icon in a blurry mashed up image.
Man, that’s really hard to put into words…
I have no idea what you two are talking about, I tried it and it makes no sense .-.
God bless you and your mod powers, Tim, thank you ;u;
Wait, try this. Open a door or get to a doorway, and stand so that you’re kinda “bisected” by the edge–so people only see half of your front when looking at you from the hall. It’s kinda like that.
Question, um why do they wear the collars? Is that like their clothes or something? Like without them are they technically “naked”?
Think of collars like t-shirts for dogs. My reason for this is 1) they look cute and 2) I can’t see someone covered in fur wearing clothes all day. They would be so uncomfortable.
When they have nothing on it’s still called naked, but it doesn’t have the same negative connotations that we know. Kind of like how Bugs Bunny is naked.
“”" I can’t see someone covered in fur wearing clothes all day. They would be so uncomfortable. “”"
which is why we don’t put clothes on doggies
Well, MOST of us.
well unless you’re an *******
But the question begs to be asked, and I swear to God I’m being serious, honest, and genuinely curious: Are they all actually super-hidden like this (like lizards, IIRC), or are you hiding it for artistic license and the characters all just accept that they’re there and don’t ***** about it like we do? I mean, either way, the answer will end with “because it’s a cartoon”, which I’m totally fine with, but…? Er, answer if you feel comfortable enough….
…Oh God, I’m gonna get banned from this comic, now, aren’t I QxQ;;;;; *curiosity-killed*
That’s getting a little deep for a comic I consider rated PG (maybe PG-13 around Halloween).
I choose to go by the old cartoon method of “their fur is covering their crotch (or hidden in someway).” If their fur got blown off they’d become embarrassed; kind of like when Donald Duck looses his feathers.
tho he didn’t have anything there even without feathers
Sorry, I overthink a loaaaaad of things. ^^; Thanks for answering, anyway!
It’s called “The Wookiee Rule”.
In TES video-game , we can walk being totally naked and wearing just a ring . But we’re clothed , for the other peoples ; it’s the same here ^^
Kade is duel eyed? Cool. And now he sees Harvey! Yay! I was afraid it would take forever.
By the way, I work on the wiki for another webcomic(Housepets!): http://housepetscomic.wikia.com/wiki/Special:WikiActivity
If you wanted, I could make a wiki for Savestate.
Yes, kade has two eyes.
I see what you did there
That’d be awesome! Thanks.
I’ve started work on it! Nothing to fancy yet, but I’m working on it, x3!
I edited it, now it’s all about dicks
Haha, Kade you have such a one track mind. And he should go without the contact from now on. Two different colored eyes are cool.
You know what would be awesome? Having an animation of Kade doing the classic Pokemon Ash animation of him turning his hat and throwing a Pokeball to summon one of his pokemon.
Funny you say that because my Savestate project directory contains a folder named “animation pokeball.”
I thought Kade would be able to see Harvey after being hit by that gigantic snowball. Also I wonder how he will react, when he realises, that it is not a Cubone.
He’s probably say something like, “Close enough!” and hug him again.
Nobody answered my other question…what DID happen to Rick’s car?
I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say that Rick drove himself over to Kade and Nicole’s place. We never saw Nicole drive Rick there, so it’s entirely possible that once Rick got extra warm in Nicole’s car, Rick went into his own.
That’s the basic idea. Also, since they live in an old mansion there’s a bit of a walk up to the house from the driveway and Rick got cold again. I suppose Kade could have shoveled the walkway, but he was busy with a raid.
Oh my! One mystery finally solved, and two more show up. XD
Panel 5: *REEN!*
It was his contact all the time!
Man, contacts are bad enough. Just imagine how much worst it is when your hands (paws) are covered in fur.
Ouch. I can’t bring myself to get contacts because I really don’t feel comfortable PUTTING SOMETHING IN MY EYES! But mentioning fur, sounds so much worse.
And claws tips just barely missing your eye when you put it on the tip of your finger.
I like Rick’s “WTF” expression through this whole interaction.
Kade’s happiness in the last panel is infectious.
Super Smash? Man..so would any level 5 CPU beat Harvey? The question kills me..and Kade’s cuteness killed me..x.x
Nah. Harvey can hold it’s own. Now if you pit Harvey against a max level Amiibo…
I’ve become quite fond of this comic. Did anyone notice that Kade’s ears lost their flopped over tip just like other dogs that have pointed ears do when they are surprised? Poor Harvey. Now Kade will try to catch him in a pokeball!
Wait, he’s taking the contact OUT in the fourth panel? I figured it fell out, revealing his different-colored eyes, and he was putting it back in. Well now the third panel makes more sense. Except for the fact that now the contact really is glowing red, but I imagine that’ll be answered later.
Also, I did not expect Kade to see Harvey this early in the comic.
Have eny of you ever thaut that this is a web comic, so logic does not have to aply?
But… His eye isn’t red. It’s orange. That confused me a lot while I was trying to figure this strip out. He pulls his orange contact out of his likewise orange eye, and I didn’t realize at first what he was doing, because it looks like he’s putting one in.
Kade has a tan eye and a blue one . As he was teased by others since he’s young , he wears a blue lens on his tan eye , to hide it
And you can see it makes a red eye to him , in the second panel
Yes, I get that now (helped by reading the comments), but the strip itself is less than helpful for figuring out what’s happening.
Unrelated to the current topic, but your skills are improving, even though the comic only started a year ago!
Harvey does look cute in Rick’s hoodie. :3
