In an interview, Kate Higgins, who does the voice acting for Sakura in the English dub, noted the development of Sakura in the series, remarking that she turned into a more complex character as she became more sensitive and caring.
is a fictional character in the Naruto manga and anime series created by Masashi Kishimoto.
In the anime and manga, Sakura is a kunoichi affiliated with the village of the Hidden Leaf (Konohagakure) and a part of Team 7, which consists of herself, Naruto Uzumaki, Sasuke Uchiha, and their sensei Kakashi Hatake.
The upper part, though, still had a Chinaesque feeling to it, so as to make her more feminine.
Despite initially deciding that Naruto and Hinata would end up together, Kishimoto thought it would be interesting if Sakura formed part of a love triangle.
This is a divergence from the other main characters of the series, whose costumes are very detailed.
The leggings are the most notable aspect of her design, as they are meant to show that she is very active.Sakura initially has an infatuation for Sasuke, praising him at every juncture, and heaps scorn upon the less skilled teammate Naruto.Over the course of the series, she begins to shed this singularly driven persona and grows more appreciative and accepting of Naruto.Within Sakura resides "Inner Sakura", a manifestation of her inner emotions.In addition to comic relief, Inner Sakura represents Sakura's actual opinion on things when she outwardly displays something opposite.As a result, Sakura stays on the sidelines, content in allowing her teammates to protect her and defeat their opponents.
