The Shino-type reoccuring theme

To be more specifically, the thing I'm thinking about is the whole sunglasses stigma.

Shino isn't the first mysterious guy who wears sunglasses in a manga/anime.

In Blade of the Immortal you have Giichi, a person part of an certain ambiguous group who has a rather *interesting* weapon he uses.

here's a link to his description:

Giichi


SAME SUNGLASSES! ... ok so he's bald, but then there's Mido Ban of Getbackers, Vash the Stampede from trigun, and the list goes on. Every one of em can be considered a mysterious character... is that what sunglasses can relate to? I suppose you can think of sunglasses in the metaphorical sense as something covering the eyes... the eyes being what describes a person the most or something...

(edit: changed the pic to a link to appease the internet gods)

The sunglasses only intensified the aura and the mystery that projects from all those characters you mentioned.. They just look so damn cool.....Also you may notice most of those characters wear Coats that has high-up collars (very bad at describing clothes) which makes half the face not visible...Shino, for example..

All this time I thought it was because many characters in anime have very light sensitive eyes!

a quasi-serious answer would be eyes being the windows of the souls, wearing sunglasses means you're hiding your soul, meaning mysterious.

Good one! If I were an anime character, I would probably need some kick-ass sunglasses to shield my eyes from the light, too. -__-;;

I would think that Shino needed sunglasses 'cause ya never know, a bug just might pop outta his eye and that would embarassing, wouldn't it...

i just thought about this for a bit and sinos coat makes sense its so the people he fights cant see the bugs come out of his skin (and for the people that watch naruto cus thats just nasty) and the sunglasses shino wants to be a badass like kakashi

I bet one of his bugs ate an eyeball. So in curtousy(sp?) of the people around him, he wears dark sunglasses to cover it up.

That's a deep thought, uglypigs-san.
Anyways, it's true that Shino isn't really the first guy with coat and sunglasses. A guy hiding his soul. There's that dude from Final Fantasy (don't know what) too.

Guys who use this type of clothes are always cool.

well just a quick tie between mido ban and shino. mido ban has a special technique that involves his eyes. i supposed the glasses serve to protect his eyes and to hide them from his enemies. may be there are things about shino we dont know yet.

also, from what we saw of the inside of shino's body when kakashi took a lookl he had bugs running all THROUGH his body. i would assume sometimes those little buggers get out through his eyes. mebbe then run across them. mebbe he doesnt even has real eyes, just a bunch of bugs feeding information to his brain or something.

we shall see.
