I don't really have a favorite ninja though, idk maybe rock lee. mostly because he has no ninjutsu and relies on taijutsu, works his *** off but can still somewhat keep up.
So, by the same logic, you would be saying that you don't like Shikamaru, either?.. and somewhat, though to a lesser extent, Kiba? Though, Shino has shown that he is quite the strategist and can dish out a proper punch when it is needed. Yes, though the bugs do most of the work, Shino is the one that gives them the commands and he treasures the little buggers.
Oh, and I forgot to say; I like Lee, mostly for his attitude. He's so sweet and hyper and hard-working.
