An annoyed monk or a peaceful monk? You decide!

Does his expression look a little irate to you? It does to me. Maybe the other monks were picking on him.
That isn't a cape, but rather a bib. Many Buddhist and Shinto statues have bibs. It is due to Jizō's association with protecting children.
Combine his annoyed look and the bib resting on his shoulder like a cape, and he almost looks like some crazed supervillian. I'll make those monks pay! They'll be sorry.
