A marina?
A reservoir?

[btw: Alis is adhesive!
Looks like she's attached with all four appendages.]

Alis uses 'GLOMP', it's super effective. :)

Figured out what this place is? I haven't even figured out what planet we're on yet.

I have no idea... possibly the same universe/planet as NMtG?

If it is, this suburbibay could be inhabited by clever octopi.

me thinks its a bay covering a part of a city of some sort.

I love how Alis' iris reflects the color of the bay in that third panel (or how it goes from b&w to color because she's looking at the bay).

Also, hi view! Loving the new comic a lot.

Oh! Oh!
Will there be uplifted octopi?
Is this where they live?
Is a little bit of NMtG playing out here?

Uplifted octopi would be neat, though uplifted Orca / Dolhpins are probably more likely in the actual IRL future.
But, hey, you never know. :)

It does raise the question though, is it humans living in the unerwater city? Or something else?

Well, dolphins and orca would have to be augmented to be capable of interacting with complex equipment or building things. Octopi just have to be altered to not self-destruct quite so much.

True enough, they do have the advantage of being able to grapple stuff.
In fact, they have 9 brains, one in the main body, and one in each tentacle.
-IF-
It turns out it's important for them to build stuff, it might not.

That said, there are things that unaltered orca / dolphins could do, such as pulling a float from A-to-B, they could be the "horses" of the waters, delivering stuff all over the place.
Or they could have a camera strapped to them so you could better explore the bottom of the sea and learn more and interesting stuff.

They'd also make excellent borderguards, especially the Orca's ... big teeth often scares people away.

She is so adorable, holding on to her diving buddy!

I suspect that Allis likes hugging, and shares her joy with others both often and passionately. :)

I bet she doesn't get too much discouragement from it either.

Is Alis shrinking? She's so much smaller, or at least smaller-looking, on this page.
