Sakura Haruno (春野サクラ, Haruno Sakura) is a kunoichi of Konohagakure. She is a member of Team Kakashi as well as Rock Lee's and Naruto Uzumaki's crush.

Background

Sasuke with his teammates

Sakura and her team-mates when they were genin.

During her early years in the Academy, Sakura had a crush on Sasuke Uchiha. After graduating from the Academy, along with her other team-mates, she was put under the guidance of her team leader, Kakashi Hatake and paired up with Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha. By the time Sasuke left the village, she had trained under Tsunade to tried to become an exceptional kunoichi.

Personality

Sakura is compassionate, determined, and kind hearted. Sakura has also shown that she does not back down from a fight, a trait she inherited from her master's contempt for losing.[1] Sakura has also shown a perverted side, from getting excited by Konohamaru Sarutobi's Sexy: Boy on Boy Technique and wanting to see Konohamaru's improve version.[2]

Ever since she entered the Academy, Sakura had a deep infatuation for Sasuke Uchiha. Even by the time Sasuke defected from Konoha, Sakura still feels affection towards him: for example, Sakura keeps a photo of Team Kakashi but with Naruto and Kakashi cut off. [3]

Throughout the Naruto series and spin-off, Sakura's personality is mainly brash. Usually whenever Sakura has these feelings she would have violent outbursts, hit the intended target such as Lee or Naruto and shout out "Shānnarō!" (しゃーんなろー) — a phrase which has no literal meaning, but is usually translated as "Hell yeah!", "Hell no!", or "Damn it!", depending on the situation. The English anime, for censorship reasons, replaced the aforementioned phrases with a forceful "Cha!".

Part 1: Love is a Part of the Springtime of Youth

While strolling around Konohagakure, Sakura is met by Lee who tries to persuade her to go out with him on a date. She rejects him, causing Lee to go into deep despair. Later, Sakura sits down on a bench with Hinata (in the anime she is by herself). She is once again met by Lee who tries many advances to impress her. However, his plans failed due many set backs. Sakura ends up running away from Lee, feeling annoyed. She is then cornered by a few missing-nin who try to attack her, but is saved by Lee. Sakura then asked why Lee saved her? Lee responded by saying that he sees her as someone important. As Lee tries to grab Sakura's hand, he accidently gropes her (in the anime, this is due to him be dizzy from his technique). This results in him being severely beaten.

Episode 5

While Sakura is seen at the Training Field, she sees herself transformed in a swimsuit by Naruto while being watched by Lee and Konohamaru. She then injures the three and complains on how they are together preforming perverted jutsu. Konohamaru remarks by reminding her of the technique he showed her that she was fond of. This causes her to blush and reject this statement. Konohamaru then preforms an advanced form of the technique, resulting in Sakura, Naruto and Konohamaru to fall into despair. Lee then proposed a contest to see whether Naruto and Konohamaru can retrieve a Chūnin Exam application from him. As the two scattered, Sakura asked Lee why he would go this far into training. Lee explains by saying that "he just wants to help out his team-mates."

Part 1: I'm Going to Teach Konohamaru Kempo

While Sakura is seen walking in the Training Field, she suddenly sees Naruto transformed into herself in a swimsuit while being watched by Lee and Konohamaru, in which she angrily beats up the three. She then complains about the inappropriate jutsu they are using. Konohamaru then reminds her of the technique that he showed to her in the past. He then states that he has created a new advanced technique of the original. She is then excited after hearing this statement, but as Konohamaru preforms the new technique, she falls into a despair state.
