I mean, seriously, what the hell XD No wonder Kishimoto didn't send Shino on any of the missions. The Orochimaru arc would've been cut short lel
Orochimaru's son/clone didn't have any problem with Shino's bugs, but where did Orochimaru have shown that fear?
If you were referring on the anime episodes leading up to Naruto and Hinata's wedding, then no, he isn't actually afraid of bugs. It's just a running gag throughout the arc.
Nothing more, nothing less.
What do you think?
