• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Formerly known as The Thin H Line, Sexy Losers was an adult Web Comic that began in 1999. Drawn in an Animesque style, it followed the antics of several different characters. They include a Hentai artist, a necrophiliac, a compulsive masturbator, a bored housewife trying to seduce her son, a group of scientists developing bizarre sex aids, several porn stars, and a couple of stage magicians. It was the highest scoring entry on the List Of Potentially Offensive Webcomics, having been awarded six "toilets" out of a possible five (not a typo). Its biggest claim to fame was its popularizing "fap" and "schlick" as onomatopoeiae for masturbation.

The series can be found here (NSFW with a semi-SFW filter page.)

The series has been reborn as The Thin H Line again as a tumblr feed/blog. The comics are listed here. (Again, most comics are NSFW.)

In accordance with site rules, please do not directly link NSFW pages.

Tropes used in Sexy Losers include:

  Touro Maebshi (post-beating): I don't understand... it was funny when it was a mom and her son. It's the same fucking joke.

  • Dropped a Bridget On Him: Gender Flipped in a strip where a gay man picks up a guy in a restaurant, and shocked to find out that he is actually a she.
    • Played straight as early as #8 (NSFW.)
  • Eighties Hair: Anime mullets out the wazoo. Most have been phased out since.
  • Eyepatch of Power: The Suicide Girl.
  • Fan Disservice
  • The Fun in Funeral
  • Gender Flip: #241 (NSFW), an inversion of Kenta's Horny Mom. It's a good demonstration of the Double Standard.
  • Girl-On-Girl Is Hot: When Rumiko begins an affair with a 18-year-old girl, her husband is delighted. Later, he installs video cameras in her room. (Both links technically SFW.)
  • Girls Love: Rumiko/Natsuki arc culminated in Natsuki's death. Madame X/Chie never got anywhere (yet?). Yeah, the author has been neglecting that side of sexual life.
  • GIS Syndrome: Stock photos show up in the earlier strips.
  • Grave Robbing: How Shiunji finds a girlfriend. When he's done, though, he puts her back..."Whenever you break up with someone, you feel like part of you has died..."
  • Heterosexual Life Partners: Jon & Al.
  • Hidden Eyes
  • Homage: Too many to count.
  • Hot Mom: Kenta's mother, Rumiko.
  • Innocent Innuendo: Taken to extremes with the addition of Innocent White Sticky Stuff On Your Face
  • The Internet Is for Porn
  • Interrupted Suicide: Yuuko Ishida, AKA The Suicide Girl.
  • Jaw Drop
  • Loads and Loads of Characters
  • Losing Your Head: "I am certain that at some point in the future, I will be prosecuted for this comic in a court of law."
  • Man, I Feel Like a Woman: Parodied in one of the "science" stories.
  • The Movie: Sadly, no.
  • Naked First Impression: #130.
  • Not What It Looks Like: No matter how often he finds his wife in bed with his best friend, the Cuckolded Husband believes this immediately, and runs with their lame excuse until they wish they'd never said it.
    • In #31, a guy caught cheating on his wife tries this excuse. Unsurprisingly, it doesn't work.
  • Organ Autonomy: Reg and his talking penis. The penis is, unfortunately, a dick.
  • Orphaned Series: Seems to be dying after an injury to the author's drawing hand in 2006, though occasional updates are trickling out as of 2009.
  • Out with a Bang: A rare female example, Natsuki's death.
  • Parental Incest
  • Parody: Again, too many to count.
  • Petite Pride: Natsuki in strip #141.
  • Primal Scene: Kenta walks in on his parents having sex (which includes roleplaying and bondage).
  • Prison Rape: One character admits that he has recently come out as gay, he would actually enjoy being the passive participant in the experience, and the assertion of dominance involved would not be psychologically traumatizing or break his spirit. This actually prevents the rape, because the rapists are mostly interested in making him suffer.
  • The Rant: Parodied in this Sunday Morning Coffee guest strip.
  • Salaryman: Mr. Shibata.
  • Self-Parody: The storyline A Hentai Made of Glass is a parody of one of the author's earlier, autobiographical strips.
  • Sex Bot: ARPA-series.
  • Smoking Hot Sex: A couple of times. Even with a tentacle monster.
  • Status Quo Is God: The Madame X storyline.
    • Or, for that matter, all of them. Word of God is that "everyone is locked into their own perversions", which might be part of why the comic has apparently stalled and died.
  • Suicide as Comedy: There's a running gag of people being unwilling to go through with it when they realize Shiuji will rape their corpses. Also, one girl tries to fake suicidal tendencies so Shiuji will be interested in her, then realizes she has no easy way out of the situation.
  • Take That: #231, a dig at Megatokyo.
  • There Are No Therapists: Somewhat averted. Dr. Lovetalk appears in most story threads, offering well-meaning and sound advice that, sadly, is completely useless in the full context of the situation.
    • "No amount of family counseling can help these people now."
  • Those Two Guys: Touro's nameless friends.
  • Too Kinky to Torture: Shiuji. In fact, too kinky to murder would be more accurate.
  • Viewers Are Geniuses: The writer would often throw in this or that element of Japanese culture and expect everyone to not only be familiar with it, but to recognize it on sight with little buildup.
  • Webcomic Time: The resolution of "Shiuji and the Suicide Girl", set during a single day, started in 2004 and ended in 2011.
  • Wrong Name Outburst: In strip #169, Rumiko and Natsuki both call out Kenta's name while having sex with each other.
  • Yet Another Christmas Carol: Mike goes through one of these, focusing on the past and present of his history of treating others as sex objects rather than human beings, with the message that he will die alone and unloved. He completely fails to get it.
  • Yonkoma
