If you are a fan of both anime and K-Pop, you might have noticed a striking resemblance between one of the characters from Boruto: Naruto Next Generations and one of the members of the popular girl group BLACKPINK. That’s right, we are talking about Eida and Lisa, who seem to share more than just their hair color.
Eida is a cyborg created by Amado, a former member of Kara, an organization of rogue ninja. She has the ability to manipulate the emotions of anyone who sees her eyes, making them fall in love with her or fear her. She also has access to all the information in the world through her Senrigan, a special eye technique that allows her to see the past and present of any person or place. She is one of the main antagonists of the current arc of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, where she is plotting to overthrow the shinobi world with her partner Code.
Lisa is a Thai singer, rapper, dancer, and model who debuted as a member of BLACKPINK in 2016. She is known for her charismatic stage presence, versatile rap skills and stunning visuals. She is also one of the most popular K-Pop idols in the world, with over 90 million followers on Instagram and over 11 million subscribers on YouTube. She released her first solo single album, LALISA, in 2021 which broke several records and topped charts worldwide.
How Are Eida & Lisa Similar?
Fans of both Boruto and BLACKPINK have been pointing out the similarities between Eida and Lisa ever since Eida made her first appearance in the manga in chapter 56. Some fans believe that Mikio Ikemoto, the illustrator of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, was inspired by Lisa when he designed Eida’s character. They have been sharing side-by-side comparisons of Eida and Lisa on various social media platforms, such as Twitter, Reddit and TikTok. Some of the similarities they have noticed include:
- Their hairstyle and color: Both Eida and Lisa have long black hair with bangs that cover their forehead. They also have a streak of blonde hair on one side of their head.
- Their outfit and accessories: Both Eida and Lisa wear black leather outfits with silver details. They also wear chokers, earrings and rings that match their style.
- Their pose and expression: Both Eida and Lisa have a confident and fierce attitude that shows in their pose and expression. They often tilt their head slightly to the side and look at the camera with a smirk or a smile.
Of course, these similarities could be just coincidental or based on common trends in fashion and beauty. However, some fans think that there is more to it than that. They speculate that Ikemoto is a fan of BLACKPINK or Lisa specifically, and that he intentionally modeled Eida after Lisa as a tribute or a reference. They also wonder if Lisa herself is aware of this connection and what she thinks about it.
So far, there has been no official confirmation or denial from Ikemoto or anyone involved in the production of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations regarding this fan theory. It is possible that Ikemoto will address this issue in a future interview or comment, or that he will reveal more clues or hints in the upcoming chapters of the manga. Until then, fans can enjoy finding more similarities between Eida and Lisa and sharing their opinions online.
