Tigers Eye: I wanted to apologize for earlier…
Shingo: Why are you putting on an act? They don’t like persistent guys, you know!
Tigers Eye: Kids should stay out of this-
Shingo: I’M NOT A KID!
Tigers Eye: Shut up! Don’t get in my way. *he snaps his fingers, taking out the bottom of Shingo’s side of the raft and sucking him down, causing him to fall screamining into the water*
Tigers Eye: Now we’re finally alone…
(Ami cuts him off my diving in after Shingo, splashing him and stunning him completely. She swims after him as he sinks unconcious to the bottom of the ocean. She grabs him, and with a determined look, begins to haul him back up)
So Tigers Eye tries again with Ami when she’s alone with Shingo. Shingo calls him out on his shit, pointing out that he’s totally hitting on her and y’know, girls don’t like guys that keep up after them after they’ve said no. Shingo’s defensiveness is partly motivated by trying to prove he’s a *man* worthy of his crush, which is why he’s pretty mad when Tigers Eye call him a kid. Doesn’t work out to well for him, since he enrages Tigers Eye, who immediately tries to drown him to get him out of the way.
Tigers Eye thinks people are worth interacting with one a sexual level, more specifically a level where he can sexually dominate, manipulate and assault them. He also is probably under the impression that women, like him, are shallow creatures who only care about people they can get sexual pleasure from. So he thinks as soon as he takes Shingo out of the picture, Ami will forget about him and be all his.
Obviously, he’s dead wrong, Ami actually respects and values the people around her and will always risk her life to save a person in need and the look on his face when Ami completely ignores him to go and save Shingo without hesitation is priceless.
Yeah, so check this: Ami dived to the bottom of the ocean, grabbed an unconcious thirteen year old boy from it’s depths, carried him to the surface, found an island to drag him onto, and saved his life with CPR all by heself. As a civilian. Ami Mizuno is a friggin’ badass boss, you better recognize.
