Boruto: Naruto Next Generations episode 287 brought Eida into focus as everyone witnessed the depth of the character. Fans were quite excited to see her, and it seemed like they couldn't get enough of her.

She possesses enormous powers, making her one of the most powerful characters in the Boruto series. However, people say her greatest power is her allure, which can control the human mind and is considered even more dangerous than some of the strongest Jutsus.

Even Code was shocked when he couldn't kill her as she wasn't answering him properly, which angered him. Eida is extremely alluring yet hard to deal with, so the job of Kana Hanazawa, the voice actor, becomes even harder to portray her emotions.
