It's the hoodie. The hood is concealed by the scarf from the front, and by Tange's hair at the sides. You can see the hood hanging down at the back in panel 1 here.

And yeah, I think Tange has something when it comes to the meaning of life. Saving people from the masked killer robot girls makes more sense to me than "42", anyway...

Yes, the hoodie definitely has a tail part.

Ohhhhhhh, I didn't notice that finger until you pointed it out. That's priceless.


Wait, I don't understand. What's the significance of Tange's finger sticking out in the last panel?

There are long histories of arguments as to whether extending one's little finger when drinking (generally when drinking tea) is polite and refined, or a somewhat gauche affectation.

I tend to view it positively; it's not exactly a natural grasp, so it shows some dedicated effort towards politeness.

From Tange, who is somewhat lacking in other social graces, it's priceless.

Back in the way back yonder, spices came in piles on little plates and trays and bowls. People ate with their hands and kept the pinky clean for dipping into spices.

Having spices meant you had money, as in some cases being worth more than gold by weight, so it became the upper classes way of holding their drinks with pinky extended.

WHY DOES SHE HAVE NO IRISES!? Every other Devilgirl has them.... I think, at least most of the well known ones do. Why are there no pupils in those eyes, just that blank open expanse of white, or if in the color comics, pale orange. Not that it looks bad, it certainly works for her, it just bothers me WHY!? I crave a reason.


She have irises. We just don't see them. Since she'll replace Slick as Sinfest's main character, she have to wear glasses at all time. They just have very thin frames.

...

What, you wanted a reason, I give you one. Nobody said anything about being reasonable.

Comic: Jeez Tange, cut Lily a bit of slack. He never did see/meet Weapon F.

When in doubt, pinkie out.

Between the music itself & the imagery described, my night is complete. Seriously, I'm so satisfied I might light up a cigarette if I had one. How might I download the sound file, Ennis?

I've never tried it, but I found this how-to if you're using Google Chrome and this one for Firefox.

Cool, thanks! Sadly, neither of those worked for me but I did find it on YouTube (God-tier 1080p, oh yes)

EDIT: Also, here it is as the soundtrack to a trailer for three Zack Snyder films, merged into one.

Today in yet more things that remind of Sinfest (this strip in particular)
