Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is finally back on track with the manga’s story with its latest episode. A major star from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba has joined the series as a new villain, bringing a fresh level of excitement to the anime. After working through several original anime arcs over the past year, the newest episode marks a significant progression in the story, as Boruto Uzumaki and the gang face new and dangerous foes following the end of their battle with Isshiki Otsutsuki.
As the anime adapts the Code Invasion arc from the manga, it also means new and crucial introductions to the series. Code’s power, fueled by his Karma, makes him a formidable opponent, but the first episode of the arc takes it to the next level with the debut of the brand new villain, Eida. Kana Hanazawa lends her voice to the character in the anime, and she took to Twitter to share the excitement with fans shortly after the episode’s premiere.
Boruto fans couldn’t contain their excitement! Watch Eida’s full introduction here:
Who is Eida’s Voice Actor?
Eida is voiced by Kana Hanazawa, who is well-known among anime fans for her roles in a number of popular anime franchises. Fans can expect to hear more from her in the upcoming third season of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, where she brings to life the character of the Love Hashira, Mitsuri Kanroji, in the Swordsmith Village arc. Kana has also lent her voice to other notable anime such as Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible (as Nagisa Kubo), Ran in the Urusei Yatsura reboot, and many more.
Eida holds a significant position in the Code Invasion arc, making her a key player in the larger narrative of the manga’s latest chapters. With her important role in the story, fans can expect to see more of her in the anime as it continues to unfold. It will be fascinating to see how Eida fits into the bigger picture as the anime moves beyond its adaptation of the Code Invasion arc and returns to original content.
