I'm sure that third panel won't lead to any jokes at all about Sarabeth's viewing preferences.

Actually, this page in general seems to really rub in Sarabeth being an anime fan. Maybe a little bit too much but hey, a girl has to have her time to unwind. This particular hobby will have some story relevance soon enough, though, so keep it in mind.

Last we see of Sarabeth for this chapter, though. She'll be showing up more consistently from here on out at least.

The problem with Sarabeth watching anime for me was that my art style is already so anime-heavy that it would be difficult to convey. Typically anime is recognizable by its unique look, which doesn't apply since the whole comic looks like that. So I tried to make the show she was watching heavy on concepts found uniquely in anime. Magical girls and Tentacle Rape.

I realize a mecha might've worked just as well, but I wasn't sure how well that would've looked.

Oh, and she's also wearing a T-Shirt with the NERV logo. Kinda appropriate seeing as both NERV and Eighth Sin are powerful semi-corporate entities with deep conspiracies and secret criminal activity that put on an air of protecting people while really only existing to further the interests of those who run them.
