Shino Aburame, the insect shinobi

Shino Aburame, the insect shinobi

Let’s meet Shino Aburame

Shino Aburame, as Naruto fanatiks know, is a shinobi of Konoha Village’s Aburame clan. He is part of Team Kurenai (Team 8) consisting of Kiba Inuzuka, his ninken Akamaru, Hinata Hyūga, and Shino Aburame himself, which is led by Kurenai Yūhi.
Quiet and at times off-putting to some, Shino utilizes his clan’s insect-based techniques to fight the enemy. He may be creepy to some but he is a fun character to watch and very underrated.

Slight spoiler in this paragraph:
Shino has always been a calm, collected, and solitary person, and quite mysterious, even since childhood. He rarely shows his emotion but is actually a very emotional person. He tends to hold grudges like still holding a little grudge against Naruto for not recognizing him when Naruto returned to the village after three years.

Shino’s name means ‘of Faith’ and Aburame means ‘oil woman’ but the name is also a variation on the word “Aburamushi” which means “cockroach” referring to his clan’s use of insects as weapons. His hobbies include entomology, and collecting new specimens for his insect collection. He even names some of them as we have seen in the anime.

Here is Shino Aburame’s theme song, give it a listen by following this link:
